Hello lovelies! 🙂
So, in today’s episode of ‘Gotta Love’, I am continuing the ‘lip product’ scheme with my current favorite product I own.
It’s the Too Faced Bonjour Beautiful Color Rich Creamy-Gloss Lip Collection.
I got this baby last summer, when I purchased the Bonjour Beautiful Collection, which also contained the Matte Eye Palette (which I already reviewed *click*) and the Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner.
So, I’ll be honest with you, I got this package mostly for the eyeliner and the palette was only a bonus. I didn’t really care about the lip collection, but little did I know that it will become my favorite product. I hadn’t even used it until last month!
But, I quickly became addicted and couldn’t leave the house without this beauty in my bag.
I just love the packaging because a) it’s really small and fits in a makeup bag or purse super-easily and b) it’s just so pretty! The dusty rose and the baby pink go so well together. :3
On the back it says:
Four creamy glosses for a moisture & color rich pout.
(I love reading the little messages from Too Faced that are on the back!)
Inside, besides the 4 shades, you can see there’s a mirror and a little application brush, which is a huge plus. The brush, you might think, is awful, since it comes with the product. It’s not! It’s actually really precise and great for application.
The Bonjour Beautiful Lip Collection consists of 4 neutral lip products: a lip shimmer, 2 lip glosses and a Lip Cream/Creme. (scroll down to see what they actually look like when applied) I must admit that I found these quite drying, but that’s nothing a little lip balm can’t fix. *cough* Burt’s Bees *cough*
1) The Lip Shimmer
This is a beautiful gold shimmer with a dash of brown. It’s sparkly, yet subtle, which makes it perfect for a ‘top layer’, if that matte or just plain color is just not doing it for you. I’d recommend wearing it on top of bolder lip colors (mostly red), as I that the contrast looks really good. And, I don’t know why, but I think it’s a perfect summer top coat. It makes you lips shine and look stunning when the sunlight hits them. 😉 Also, I’d wear this on holiday in the evenings. You know how when you’re on holiday you get ready for dinner and to go out later? Well, this would probably be what I’d go for with a plain white dress. (especially if I got a bit of a tan)
2) Lip Gloss #1
This is a beautiful matte lip gloss, in a nude pink-ish/brown colour. I love this shade when you want to achieve that natural, no-makeup look, as it fits my skin tone quite well. It looks quite brown/orange in the package, however, on the swatch it’s way better. I also love the fact that it’s matte! (or at least not shiny or shimmer) I can see myself wearing this lip shade on sunny spring days when I just can’t be bothered with a darker colour or just really want that natural look. It’s a perfect everyday colour! Also, don’t be fooled by the word ‘gloss’, it is not glossy nor sticky like glosses usually are. 😉
3) Lip Gloss #2
This is a more metallic and slightly darker variant of the previous product. It’s got a golden shine, which can look very pretty, in the right lighting. It’s more brown, I think, but still that beautiful nude color. I feel as this is a bit more for night time, when you want your lips to glisten and stand out. 😉
4) Lip Cream/Creme
I saved my favorite for the end. This is my current go-to lip colour. I don’t think I’ve ever used a product so often. (and yet used up so little of it!) This is a dark red/Indian red/light coral matte shade. I think this really suites my skin tone, too. Also, this is a neutral red, so it really goes with everything. This is also one of the colors that goes really well with the lip shimmer above. Another great thing (with all of these, honestly) is that the formula is less glossy than normal lip glosses, so your hair won’t stick to it as much.
Here is what they look like on the lips:
Cute and efficient! Love it!
These are really pigmented. A little goes a long way, too!
Okay, this may not be a pro to some people, but it does last an incredibly long time. However, I’ve found that sometimes, it can stain my skin a bit. (when I was taking photos of the swatches)
Color Range? 8/10
I love the colors, I really do, but I would have them be slightly different to one another. It is a great nude/natural lip palette, though!
Application Brush? 10/10
Surprisingly, this is a great brush! I really didn’t have high expectations for it, but it turned out to be incredible! Props to you, Too Faced! 😀
I really adore this lip product palette. It has the perfect nudes, it’s a great combination of shimmer and matte, which is always handy. It’s just wonderful! However, I did find it quite drying.
And there you have it , folks, there’s why you just have to love the Too Faced Bonjour Beautiful Lip Collection. I hope you enjoyed this post. 🙂 If you want to get your hands on one of these, you can click here. (It’ll take you to Amazon, as it’s no longer available anywhere else.
