Oh how I love spotting a bargain! I went into my local Tkmaxx a few days ago and got all excited over all the beauty and skin care products they had in! I dug my way through the shelves and found these two Too Faced Color Bomb Lip tints. I’ve never purchased Too Faced before so at just £5.99 each (RRP £15) I couldn’t refuse picking these up.
As I found so many good stuff in Tkmaxx, I’ve also done a huge haul that will be up a couple of days later. *This is just a preview guys!*
I was really looking forward to trying these two after seeing so many positive reviews on Too Faced lip products. Eastwood Red is a light red that has subtle pink tones. On the skin it almost looks a fuchsia but on the lips it’s a lovely cherry red. Bigger berry is very similar in terms of shade. On the lips it looks a deep fuchsia pink with deep tones of purple.
Too Faced’s packaging itself is very persuading, I love the cute pink and gold packaging, and this works again with the look of the lip tints. After about a minute of application, you can start to feel the plumping sensation.. A slight tingle on the lips. It says it can last 5-10 minutes with the best-selling lip injection technology. definitely a color explosion!!
The lip tints feel really soft and comfortable. They don’t feel sticky as I thought they would be with the lip injection formula. I noticed that for a lip tint they were very long-lasting, usually I find these products to fade/wipe off quite quickly but these didn’t. They kept my lips hydrated and even after the excess plump had gone, it still had tinted my lips – leaving a stain like finish. With the crayon type application it made it really easy to apply I thought, the bottom of the product turns too to release more of the lip stain so I reckon it will last me very long time!

As you can see on the swatches on my skin both lip tints seem really pigmented and look very sheer! I wouldn’t say they were matte as they are too moistursing especially with the plumping formula but they are nowhere near on the sticky glossy side – so it’s a perfect lip product for me!!
What do you think of these two hidden beauties?
