Too Faced Juicy Melons La Creme Lipstick
Too Faced Juicy Melons La Creme Lipstick

Go Right Ahead and Bite Into This Juicy Melon!

Too Faced Juicy Melons La Creme Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pink coral.” It’s a strawberry pink with a strong yellow undertone, so I could see it looking to coral–I think it’s a smidgen on the pinker side. This is like a much tamer variation of MAC Force of Love. Chanel Hyde Park is brighter and less yellow-toned. Guerlain Giulette is a bit brighter and has a gold sheen, but it is similar. MAC Sunny Seoul is a touch lighter. Bobbi Brown Pink Peony is quite comparable, perhaps a touch darker.

The formula is described as having “rich, creamy color” with “hydrating moisturizers.” It actually says “pigmented-saturated, one-swipe formulas drench lips with sexy, pure color.” Juicy Melons has a creamy consistency that looks and feels rather balm-like as it glides across lips easily and never, ever drags or tugs.  The color is mostly opaque and has a noticeable sheen from the finish.  It wore for three and a half hours, and when I wore it over an eight hour span (reapplying twice), I did find it hydrating! The one thing I noticed is that because it has a thicker consistency, if you press your lips together, lines are sometimes created.

A-
For as creamy as this lipstick it, the wear time is fairly good, and the color payoff is very close to opaque. It's comfortable to wear, and if you tend to like lipstick-lip balm hybrids, you may like this formula!

    Thank you for reviewing and swatching this Juicy Melons. I’ve been waiting to see what you thought before deciding on which to buy – this one or Naughty Nude.

    While I will *definitely* be taking a pass on this particular shade, the formula does seem worth checking out

  5. Kelly

  7. Sounds like a great product, worth checking out next time I’m at Sephora.

  8. This one is a little too pink for my taste, but I’ll definitely try the formula!

  9. Mary

    I love this lipstick on you! Thanks for doing a Too Faced review. It’s my favorite brand and would love to see more of it on your blog.

  10. Sarie

    Do you know of any blushes that would be the same color as this? I have tarte’s blissful, but do you know of any other close colors?

  11. Bobbie

    Oooh I almost bought this at Ulta yesterday; I might have to go back..

  12. Mandi

    Looks like a more opaque version of everhip… i want.

    I like lipstick-lip balm hybrids. I’ll have to check this line out next time I’m at Ulta or Sephora!

      Speaking of, I was in Sephora today and picked this up in Cinnamon Kiss. I really like it, and the texture is fantastic. Also, I love the packaging – very classy and elegant. I need more of these!

    I’m so glad you’re reviewing these! I wonder how well the nude shades work

    • layla

      THE NUDES ARE GREAT, AND GLOSSY PRETTY…I HAVE NUDE BEACH ,NAKED DOLLY…BOTH ARE GREAAT! NUDE BEACH IS MORE NUDE PINK, AND NAKED DOLLY IS PEACHY BEIGE NUDE…LOVE! THE OTHER BEST ONE IS MARSHMELLOW BUNNY..A BABY PINK…THE REST IS OK…THE COLOR BEING SWATCHED IS NOT A FAV. GET NUDE BEACH!

    I love this color! I have this lipstick in Naked Dolly. I can’t figure out if it’s other factors or if I’m allergic to something in this sort of formula, but last time I wore it the edges of my lips got extremely raw and dried out for about a week. Same thing happened with one of the YSL lipsticks that look very similar. I’ll have to figure that out before trying another one of these :(

    • It might be an allergic reaction or some sort of sensitivity to an ingredient – because it kind of sounds like it’s very drying on your lips!

    • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Amy xamyx

      I had a similar reaction to YSL lipstick many years ago, so I think I’ll pass on these, too. It’s just not worth taking a chance when there are so many other products available.

    Wow, it pulls so pink on you in the photo. Much more coral on me.

  17. kolorkoded

    OMG this lipstick must be in my life! I’m a sucker for pink lipsticks and glosses!

  18. Alexandra

    I’m loving this formula! I have La Creme in Fuchsia Shock and Stiletto, and I’ve been lusting after Juicy Melons. It smells lightly like lotus and feels good on all day.

  19. So gorgeous! I think i just have to stop browsing your site. I just can’t help stocking and stocking more makeup. Great review as always!

  20. Jasmine

    This looks so pretty! I was wondering, how does it compare to MAC’s Blossom Culture?

  21. Tigress

    Too expensive, but absolutely gorgeous.

  22. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Chau ChauDM

    From the review and the photos, I think this lipstick formula and Korres Mango Butter lipstick have a lot in common.

  23. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Gina Gina

    I have one of these in Spice Spice Baby, and they’ve become my new lipstick obsession! I really want to grab both this and Coral Fire. I love the texture–so creamy and smooth!

  24. Ruthless

    These lipsticks are awesome, opaque and hydrating

  25. I really really loooove this! I love Force of Love but it’s hard to find, AND didn’t look right on me due to the super brightness. I may go pick this up this week. Thanks for an excellent post! I hadn’t known about these before :)

  26. This leap stick is very lighter than other. It will be very amazing if she use deep color. These are also very expensive. That’s why i don’t have these collections.

  27. Pretty! And it looks very creamy indeed, a pleasure to wear.

  28. This is a bit sheer for my tastes, but I love the colour! This is the type of lip shade I wear very easily and I think it universally flattering. It is very ‘fresh’ looking.

  29. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Pamela Pamela

    Looks a bit like MAC Crosswires. What do you think?

  30. Cassandra

    I think I have a drugstore dupe for this lipstick, with a very similar finish as well aa texture! Try The new Loreal Caresse Lipstick in Sunset Angora, they both have that creamy somewhat sheer finish with that pinky coral tone!

    Hey Christine, plz do swatches and photos for all the lipsticks under this category, Ive heard they are pretty good, would love to see what the other colours look like.
