This review will be on the Too Faced Perfect Lips “Perfect Spice” lip liner.
It’s no secret that our La Crème insanely rich lip colors sometimes don’t know where to stop, so we created Perfect Lips to keep them in check. They glide on to define and prime, keeping lip color from feathering out of bounds. A twist-up tip always stays sharp and the comfortable gel grip makes precise lining a breeze. Formulated to be a perfect color match with a La Crème color family: n*de, spice, pink, red and berry.
- Paraben free.
- Vegan Friendly shades: Perfect Berry, Perfect Red, Perfect Spice, Perfect N*de.
My Experience with Too Faced Perfect Lips Perfect Spice Lip Liner:
Packaging: This lip liner comes in a sleek retractable pencil format. I like the fact that there is no hassle of sharpening up the pencil. The packaging reflects the color of the lip liner which makes this easy to spot among your other products. There is a rubberized grip provided where you would hold the lip liner making it ergonomic.
Texture: This lip liner is very smooth and creamy and glides on without any tug. It is very easy to precisely trace out the edges of your lip lines or even over draw them for an illusion of fuller lips.
Shade and Finish: The shade “Perfect Spice” is a beautiful neutral MLBB shade leaning a bit more towards brown rather than pink. This shade is perfect to wear on its own or even under a n*de lipstick to make it more wearable. If you have a n*de lipstick that tends to wash you out, then using a shade like this underneath makes it look more warmer hence more wearable (See LOTD). This shade on its own is very on trend with the 90s lip craze going on right now, courtesy of the renowned lip muse Kylie Jenner. This shade will flatter most skin tones, especially “us” desis 😛
Finish: This lip liner sets to a complete matte finish. There is no shimmer or sheen.
Feel on lips: This lip liner, like most other liners can feel a bit drying when used on its own. Though it has never accentuated dry patches or fine lines on my lips, it is always best to keep your lips in good condition by exfoliating and moisturizing prior. If I use this lip liner as a base over a hydrating lipstick or gloss, the drying nature of this product doesn’t feel bothersome at all.
Staying Power: This lip liner is very long wearing. It stays 7-8 hours on my lips easily, which is the amount of time I usually wear makeup and I need a makeup remover at the end of the day to completely take it off. It survives through many snacks and drink breaks and even a full meal provided it is not very oily. After a full meal, there is some fading from the inside of the lips which requires touch-ups.
I love the fact that this lip liner is vegan friendly and paraben free, which is a good quality to have in your lip products.
Overall, I am very impressed with this product and particularly this shade is a must-have in my books. I also love the fact that this product comes at a decent price tag yet it rivals even the most high-end brand lip liners I have used in the past. I totally recommend this.
In the LOTD, I have worn it on its own and next to it topped it up with Laura Mercier Lip Parfait in shade Pink Grapefruit.
