Too Faced Bon Bon La Creme Lipstick
Too Faced Spring 2014 La Creme Lipsticks

Too Faced La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) sees the introduction of five new shades for spring from pale peach to rich red. They’re true to the La Creme formula–creamy, balm-like consistency with good color payoff, glossy finishes, and moderate wear times. I didn’t notice any taste, but they had a sweet, lemony scent.  Jelly Bean was the best, while Taffy was disappointing.

Bon Bon is described as a “pink papaya.” It’s a pop of brightened, medium pink-coral with a glossy, luminous sheen. It had mostly opaque color coverage–just a hint of translucency, and it wore well for four and a half hours and was nicely hydrating when worn. Charlotte Tilbury Coachella Coral (P) is less glossy, slightly warmer. MAC Hoop (DC, $15.00) is much pinker. Givenchy Rose Dressing (202) (P, $36.00) is slightly darker. MAC Elegant Accent (P, $22.00) is very similar. MAC Watch Me Simmer (LE, $15.00) is more matte. MAC Heart to Heart (LE, $15.00) is pinker, more matte. Guerlain Giulette (P, $49.50) has shimmer, slightly pinker. Chanel Genial (LE, $34.00) is a touch pinker. See comparison swatches.

Jelly Bean is described as a “raspberry red.” It’s a deepened, brightened raspberry red with cool, blue undertones and a lightly glossy shine. It had rich, opaque color coverage, and it applied very smoothly and evenly. This shade lasted six hours and left a residual stain behind. It was moisturizing both during and after wear. Guerlain Provocative (863) (LE, $49.50) is redder. Urban Decay Catfight (P, $22.00) is very similar, slightly redder. Guerlain Girly (P, $49.50) is pinker. MAC Scan-delicious (LE, $19.00) is similar. Guerlain Champs-Elysees (P, $35.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches.

Lollipop is described as a “violet with orchid shimmer.” It’s a cool-toned, fuchsia-shimmered magenta with cool undertones. It had semi-opaque color coverage–it was a lot sheerer than other La Cremes. When I wore this shade, it was lightly hydrating and wore well for four hours. MAC Midnight Mambo (LE, $22.00) is similar, less shimmered. Revlon Lollipop (P, $7.49) is glossier, less shimmery. Milani Violet Volt (P, $5.49) is more matte, more shimmery. MAC Show Orchid (P, $15.00) is very similar in color but is not as glossy. See comparison swatches.

Pink Chocolate is described as a “berry brown.” It’s a warm, rosy plum with a glossy, luminous shine. It had mostly opaque color coverage, lasted four hours, and was nicely hydrating during that time. Laura Mercier Cozy (P, $24.00) is warmer, more matte. MAC Candy Apple (LE, $16.00) is redder. Chanel Ce Soir (P, $34.00) is slightly more muted, more matte. MAC Glamourdaze (LE, $15.00) is darker. MAC Brick-o-la (P, $15.00) is more matte. Buxom Hooligan (P, $21.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Taffy is described as a “pink marshmallow nude.” It’s a light, pinky-peach with a luminous shine. This shade was really, really creamy, but it applied unevenly and seemed to emphasize every imperfection on the lip. It was extremely unforgiving, even on freshly exfoliated lips. This shade wore well for three hours and was moisturizing during that time. Chanel Melba (75) (LE, $34.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Native (P, $22.00) is slightly pinker. Revlon Pink Lemonade (P, $7.49) is very similar. See comparison swatches.

Not only do your lips look fantastic with these beautiful shades, but I’m really loving your eye makeup in the photos as well. La Creme is a super comfortable formula, but does not have great lasting power on me. They rather put me in mind of the TF sheer lipstick, different in texture somewhat, but similar finish and look and obviously at a much better price point.

Love Pink Chocolate and Taffy. The latter if one of my favorite kinds of nudes, so I’m sad to see the quality isn’t there. Jelly Bean is gorgeous on you!

LRW Avatar

An extra step,but I apply gloss over Taffy and problem solved..you can also pat the color on with finger tips and that smooths it out some(ok,2 extra steps,lol,but if you own this lipstick color,at least it is a way to get some use out of it).

I love the La Creme formula, it’s one of the most comfortable lipstick formulas for me, I find myself recommending it all the time. Also, this post helped me realize I have Givenchy Rose Dressing and Mac Elegant Accent on my wishlist and I was about to add Bon Bon! I also have Laura Mercier’s Cozy on my wishlist and like Pink Chocolate! Now I have to choose between them, what a task!

I just recently tried Fuchsia Shock and I really liked the formula. It seems to work well with my dry lips so I’m excited to see new shades. Lollipop is beautiful! I love that purple sheen! Taffy would have been a great natural color but the wear seems terrible. Disappointing for such a nice shade

I am drawn to Bon Bon although I have several lipsticks in this shade. I think Pink Chocolate has my
name on it. My favorite lipstick right now is Too-Faced Spice Spice Baby (yup, I have a back-up 🙂 ).
I love how creamy these lipsticks are. They don’t last long on me, though.

Hey Valerie!

Too Faced should launch tomorrow, Sephora I’m not sure – they have them listed but they’re “not in stock” at the moment. Too Faced said Sephora will get the palette on the 19th… but again, hard to say – Sephora could magically enable stock tomorrow for all I know!

WOW, these look SO PERFECT ON THE LIPS! flawless <3 I think that the pale one looks pretty good too(tho probably not on my flaky lips) but on normal lips, yes 😀 pale Mac lipglasses look way worse on than this pale lipstick. Hard to choose but Bon bon is my fav 😀 corals are irresistible 🙂 I wish I could get it :))

Christine, how does Pink Chocolate compare to the line’s Cinnamon Kiss? They both look so similar to me on the website!
Also, any idea why Ulta doesn’t have this collection (at least not on their website)? Thanks! 🙂

Carla Avatar

Hmm. I thought I wanted Lollipop, until I saw how similar it is to MAC Show Orchid, which I already own.
In fact, Show Orchid looks more vibrant in the photos, which is a good thing for me.
I guess I’ll be passing up Lollipop, after all.
It’s very unusual for a visit here to kill a lemming.
Oh, well; it won’t happen again for a long time, no doubt … 🙂
