Too Faced Clueless La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium, cotton candy pink with a ton of gold glitter and finer lavender pearl. It really doesn’t feel or look much like the La Creme formula has; it is sheerer in its base, but it is still emollient, slippery, and thick enough that for all the glitter there is, it doesn’t feel particularly gritty. It doesn’t apply evenly, unfortunately, but it had a lot of dimension and reflectiveness that I didn’t feel it looked quite as splotchy in person as it does appear in swatches. The glitter tends to bunch up a bit, which gives the lips a more textured look. It wore for three hours, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. It does tint the lips pink as well. Though it is going to rate abysmally, I quite enjoyed it as a total glitter-packed product, but it falls short of the La Creme promises of pigmentation, application, and hydration. It takes several removals to get all of the glitter off, even though the majority of the color/effect is removed the first time you remove it–the glitter just clings. I had a few stray glitters after wearing it. MAC Pink Popcorn (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NYX Castle (P, $4.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Love Long Distance (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lovecraft (P, $18.00) is lighter, brighter, more pigmented (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Malik (P, $35.00) is less shimmery, warmer (80% similar). Dolce and Gabbana Ametista (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar).
