Too Faced Coral Fire La Creme Lipstick
Too Faced Coral Fire La Creme Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “coral red.” It’s a vibrant, slightly pink-leaning, medium coral with a luminous sheen. Givenchy Croisiere Coral (310) (LE, $36.00) is less pink. Urban Decay Protest (P, $22.00) is similar, slightly warmer. Chanel Pygmalion (LE, $34.00) is a touch brighter. Guerlain Nahema (P, $35.00) is pinker. Chanel Genial (LE, $34.00) is pinker. Buxom Two-Timer (P, $21.00) is lighter, less pink. See comparison swatches.
The color was incredibly rich with full color coverage, while the texture was lightweight, emollient, and very comfortable to wear. The formula was lightly creamy, so the color glided on easily without tugging or pulling at the lips, and I felt like it went on so smoothly that it made my lips look better than they actually were–that’s a sign of a truly fantastic lip product. Sometimes the La Creme formula wears away somewhat faster than the average lipstick, but Coral Fire held on for four and a half hours and was nicely hydrating the entire time when worn.
