Too Faced Red Stiletto La Creme Lipstick
Too Faced Red Stiletto La Creme Lipstick

Too Faced Red Stiletto La Creme Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “classic red.” It’s a slightly muted, medium red with warm, orange undertones and a luminous sheen. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and the consistency was very emollient and creamy. I did notice some feathering after four hours of wear, and the color lasted for four and a half hours well. It was lightly hydrating during that time. Revlon Provocateur (135) (P, $8.99) is more matte. Anna Sui Minnie Mouse (01) (LE) is brighter. Chanel Dialogue (P, $34.00) is slightly more muted, more matte. See comparison swatches.

Sweet Maple La Creme Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “plum brown.” It’s a plum-tinged, medium brown with a natural shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage with some translucency all-over, so if you have naturally pigmented lips, this may look quite different on you as it is not fully opaque. The texture was lightly creamy though it had less slip compared to other shades of the La Creme formula, which was reflected in the finish–a soft sheen but not quite glossy. It wore well for three hours and was just a smidgen moisturizing while worn. bareMinerals Break Away (LE) is lighter, more matte. Givenchy Brun Cachemire (104) (P, $36.00) is a touch lighter. Urban Decay Strip (P, $22.00) is rosier. Bobbi Brown Soft Nude (P, $24.00) is more plum. MAC Glamour Era (P, $22.00) is warmer, browner. MAC Double Shot (P, $15.00) is darker, browner. Guerlain Avarice (P, $49.50) is more matte, slightly rosier. See comparison swatches.

    I’m sorry if I am posting this in the wrong place, but you were mentioned in a recent LifeHack (over 799k subscribers) article about buying cheaper, aka dupes: http://lifehacker.com/stop-wasting-money-buy-the-identical-cheaper-versions-1481925774?utm_campaign=socialflow_lifehacker_facebook&utm_source=lifehacker_facebook&utm_medium=socialflow

  2. I didn’t think I’d like Sweet Maple, but I do!

  3. I love Sweet Maple (I could be biased because I’m eating buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup right now, lol).

  4. Both the shades are beautiful on u Christine :)
    But

    jelly beans have my heart n I dream about that often :(

    How does Sweet Maple compare to Spice Spice Baby from the same line?

    Am drooling hard core over sweet maple. I do have quite pink lips though. Are the feel of these similar to YSL rouge volupte shine?

    You look really glowy! what blush/highlighter are you wearing?

  9. Red Stiletto is such a beautiful color. And the second one is actually surprisingly really flattering, I thought it would be too brown but it looks natural and effortless

  10. In my opinion, Sweet Maple is very similar in shade to Bad Girl RiRi, just not matte. Do you agree?

  11. I love Red Stiletto. It looks like a great daytime red for those days when I don’t feel like going all out.

    • I thought Red Stiletto might be a strong contender for the MAC Powerhouse dupe I’ve been seeking for years, but it doesn’t look like it quite packs the punch I’m looking for.
      Oh, well … :/

    Revlon’s Lip Butter in Wild Strawberry(Watermelon?) looks JUST like Red Stiletto!
