Too Faced Honey Bear & I Want Candy La Cremes

Too Faced Honey Bear La Creme Lipstick
Too Faced Honey Bear La Creme Lipstick

Too Faced Honey Bear La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and fine gold shimmer paired with a lightly glossy finish. It had a creamy, melty consistency that’s emollient and very comfortable to wear, but it does move around a little more than your average lipstick does. It lasted four hours on me, and it was particularly hydrating while worn. MAC Amor Prohibido (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Ramblin' Rose (P, $17.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty So Vain (50) (P, $50.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Neutral Rose (P, $35.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Smashbox Mauve Squad (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, cooler, glossier (90% similar).

NARS Bettina (P, $27.00) is lighter, less glossy (80% similar). Buxom Dolly (LE, $21.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Too Faced I Want Candy La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a bright, medium pink with warm undertones and a fine silver shimmer paired with a glossy finish. The texture was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and had a moderate slip. I saw that some color welled into my lip lines, but this wasn’t that noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The color lasted for four hours and was moisturizing over time. Estee Lauder Power Mode (410) (P, $32.00) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Genial (LE, $37.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Giulette (DC, $55.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Givenchy Rose Boudoir (204) (P, $36.00) is lighter (90% similar). Shiseido Crime of Passion (RD311) (P, $28.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Bright Peony (P, $35.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Watch Me Simmer (LE, $17.00) is warmer (85% similar). Givenchy Rose Dressing (202) (P, $36.00) is darker (85% similar). Guerlain Attrape-Coeur (171) (LE, $37.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Revlon Snow Peach (LE, $7.99) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Melodieuse (136) (P, $37.00) is brighter (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Paradiso (07) (P, $50.00) is lighter (85% similar). Maybelline Coral Burst (740) (P, $7.49) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Too Faced Bon Bon (P, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Guerlain Gracy (P, $55.00) is darker (80% similar). YSL Rose Neillia (33) (P, $34.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Patrick (P, $35.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Estee Lauder Blossom Bright (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

(As a note, I Want Candy seems to be MIA from most retailers–I was able to find it still listed on Ulta, but it is out of stock, so I’m guessing it’s been discontinued.)

Formula Overview

Too Faced La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is supposed to be a creamy, hydrating, and pigmented lipstick. The majority of the range has a signature texture: lightweight, creamy, moderately slippery, and feels like it melts against the lips. The color payoff varies from semi-opaque to fully opaque, though some of the glittery shades are sheerer (but packed with glitter). The formula is usually hydrating on me with average wear (about four hours).

Too Faced Totally Cute Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced Totally Cute Eyeshadow Palette
Too Faced Totally Cute Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced Totally Cute Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.39 oz.) is a new, limited edition nine-pan eyeshadow palette with several neutral shades and a few pops of color. One of the selling points is that the palette has a soft pink exterior that was designed for you to decorate with stickers, which are included. (If you purchased directly from Too Faced, you’ll get an additional sticker sheet.) I wish I could say it was a decent palette, but I actually found it surprisingly difficult to apply, even when I used it with Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance Primer. The difference in application with primer was minor, while the longevity was the most improved by primer. The mattes were thinner, and they didn’t blend as well with the denser, metallic shades. The standout shades were Clover and Storm Cloud, but shades like Shooting Star, I Love TF, and Meow! were more time-consuming to use.

Double Scoop is a pale, yellowed beige with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was very silky and smooth, but it kicked up excess product. On my coloring, it is chalky and doesn’t work as a brow bone highlighter (too stark) — that doesn’t impact the rating, it’s just a note I’m passing on. It started to fade after seven hours of wear. Inglot #355 (P, $6.00)(100% similar). Urban Decay Anonymous (LE, $19.00)(100% similar). Anastasia Vanilla (P, $12.00) is warmer (95% similar). Ciate My Tribe (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Conch (LE) is cooler (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M500 Ivory (P, $21.00) is more pigmented (95% similar). Too Faced Ginger Cream (LE, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Righteous (LE, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). Dior Golden Reflections #4 (LE) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Black Tie Attire #4 (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Super Mom (LE) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). Inglot #353 (P, $6.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Coconut (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Rock Candy (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Laura Mercier Buttercream (P, $23.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Meow (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Smashbox Vanilla (P) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Waterlilies (LE) is darker (95% similar). Anastasia Fresh (P, $12.00) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Base Coat (LE) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bunny Fu-Fu is a medium-dark, burnt orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. While very finely-milled, it was dusty and thin to work with, which made it very hard to use on bare skin, and even using Too Faced’s Primer didn’t fix it, as it didn’t adhere as well as it should have. I had some fall out when used, as some of the eyeshadow would dust and sheer out (even after tapping off excess prior to getting the brush near my lid). It lasted for six and a half hours on me before fading. LORAC Tangerine (LE, $19.00)(100% similar). Inglot #123R Top (P, $6.00) is lighter (95% similar). Anastasia Isabel (LE, $12.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Kat Von D Analogue (LE) is darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Rust (Contour) (P) is darker (90% similar). MAC Rule (P, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Coral (P, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). Milani Bella Mandarin (27) (P, $4.49) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chocolate Donut is a deep, slightly muted plum with warm, brown undertones and a mostly matte finish. (There appeared to be subtle sparkle strewn thorugh the pan of product, but I really didn’t detect it when I used it.) The texture was soft and smooth, but a little dusty, and again, it tended to sheer out and did not apply evenly on bare skin. It had semi-opaque coverage, and it was not buildable beyond that (it just kept sheering out!). The color faded noticeably after seven hours. LORAC Burgundy (P, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Mulberry & Bright (LE) is darker (95% similar). Tarte BFF (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Double Tap (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Charming (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Deep Damson (P, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Cocoa What Fun (LE) is warmer (90% similar). theBalm #13 (P, $6.50) is lighter (90% similar). LORAC Cabernet (LE, $19.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Stallion (LE, $9.99) is cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever M608 Red Brown (P, $21.00) is warmer (85% similar). Tarte Mancat (LE) is cooler (85% similar). Too Faced Bordeaux (P, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). Chanel Pulsion (112) (P, $29.50) is cooler (85% similar). Becca Bordeaux (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Anastasia Deep Plum (P, $12.00) is warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Beauty Mark (P, $12.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Sugar Plum (LE, $16.00) is cooler (85% similar). Laura Mercier Kir Royal (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). theBalm Moderato (P, $16.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Shooting Star is a light, golden beige with warm undertones and a fine, frosted shimmer. The texture felt silky-smooth to the touch, but it was also the type of eyeshadow where some of the shimmer separated away from the base color, so it can be a little messier to work with and harder to blend out without getting shimmer in unintended places. This one might work better over a sticky base, as Too Faced’s own standard primer did not improve it. It started to fade after seven hours of wear. Smashbox Flirt (P) is lighter (95% similar). L'Oreal Iced Latte (P, $7.99) is cooler (95% similar). bareMinerals Presto (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Giorgio Armani Gold Ashes (12) (P, $39.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Crème-filled (LE, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar). Anastasia Blush (LE, $12.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Devotion (P) is more shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Riviera (P, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Shade IV (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Viseart Kifu (P) is lighter (90% similar). YSL Avant Garde #2 (P) is lighter (90% similar). Stila Kitten (P) is darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #1 (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Crystal Spark (LE) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Satin Ochre (Left) (LE) is lighter (90% similar). MAC At the Beach (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Smashbox Straight Up (P) is darker (85% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Rain Dove (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Smashbox Starlight (P) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Clover is a pop of medium, grassy green with strong, warm yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that was blendable and easy to work with on bare skin. This shade started to crease after seven and a half hours of wear. Viseart Boheme Dream #6 (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Fyrinnae Dragon's Wing (P, $6.75) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Fyrinnae Bitey Tyrannosaur (P, $9.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Freak (P) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever D334 Apple Green (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Illamasqua Possession (LE) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Coloured Raine Bay Breeze (P, $6.99) is lighter (85% similar). Too Faced Very Merry (LE, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). City Color Evergreen (P, $6.99) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Makeup Geek Appletini (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Storm Cloud is a deep, bluish-teal with purplish undertones and a frosted sheen. It had intense color coverage with a smooth, cream-like feel to it that blended out well on the skin. It started to crease after seven and a half hours of wear. Coloured Raine Forbidden (P, $6.99) is warmer (95% similar). bareMinerals Editor's Pick (LE) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (95% similar). bareMinerals Dazzle (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Deep Blue Green (P, $21.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Trendy (P) is less shimmery, more muted (90% similar). Buxom Twilight Tryst (P, $12.00) is cooler (90% similar). Chantecaille Lagoon (P, $34.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Anastasia Mermaid (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). LORAC Deep Teal (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Deep Sea (LE, $14.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Sleek MakeUP Hocus Pocus (LE, $9.99) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Unicorn is an iridescent, very light white with a pinkish sheen. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a denser, firmer texture that wasn’t difficult to use, but it was noticeably firmer compared to most of Too Faced’s eyeshadows (particularly for their more shimmery shades). This shade started to crease after seven hours of wear. LORAC Gluten Free (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Pearl (LE, $32.50) is more shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D124 Crystalline White (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Burberry Optic White (000) (P, $29.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). LORAC Black Tie Attire #1 (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Zoeva Spun Pearl (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). NYX Frostbite (P, $6.00) is brighter (95% similar).

Cle de Peau Les Annees Folles #8 (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Mortal (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

I Love TF is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cooler, blue undertones and a sparkly, lightly frosted finish. The texture was looser and drier in the pan, and I had a lot of trouble getting this shade to adhere to the skin–bare lids or primer–as it would immediately fade and look patchy. It might work better wet and/or over a tacky base. I had to layer it five or six times just to get it show up marginally in the eye look, and I had to just pat it on and avoid blending it in order to keep any of it visible. This eyeshadow lasted five hours on me before fading significantly. Urban Decay Cake (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Too Faced Totally Fetch (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Noise (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Sugarpill Smitten (LE, $13.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Too Faced Monaco (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Buxom Party Girl (P, $12.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Woodstock (P, $19.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Backlash (LE, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Fyrinnae Superstar (P, $6.75) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). Viseart Boheme Dream #7 (LE) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Maybelline Pink Rebel (P, $6.99) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Meow! is a blackened purple with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had decent pigmentation with a lightly dusty consistency. The eyeshadow could have diffused and blended more readily along the edges, as it had a drier, more dragged out appearance without using a more forgiving eyeshadow to soften the edges. It lasted for seven hours on me before fading noticeably. Dior Eclectic #5 (LE) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Straight Trippin' (LE, $5.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Tarte Glamorous (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Shadowy Lady (P, $16.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). Makeup Geek Taboo (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Jungle Love (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Disney by Sephora Wonder by Wonder (LE) is warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Center Stage (P) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). bareMinerals In Vogue (LE) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar).
