Peachy Keen: Too Faced Sweet Peach Lip Gloss Review

I mentioned in my last edition of The Current Sass that I got a sample of Too Faced Cosmetics’ Sweet Peach Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss (phew that was a mouthful!) using my VIB points. I’ve surprisingly been wearing it recently, although we all know that I have an aversion to nudeish lips.

The closest I have ever gotten to “nude” is KVD Lolita.

(PS that is just a shadow my underarms are clean and fresh! Just to clarify).

I think it’s even more shocking because this is a gloss, which I also typically hate. I think the least offensive gloss I’ve tried (besides this one) is NYX’s butter gloss, by the way.

I was prepared to dislike this product but the truth of the matter is that I really like this gloss. I will admit that I wish I had the darker or more coral shades, but the formula is awesome.

The wear time on this is pretty standard, considering that it’s a gloss. You can’t expect it to be super spectacular because glosses typically don’t last as long as other lip products. I also don’t wear glosses, so my experience isn’t as extensive as liquid lipsticks or other lipsticks.

The most impressive thing about this is the formula. It isn’t sticky, and it has kind of a balm-y texture. It’s not tacky or heavy on the lips, but feels smooth and slick. It doesn’t settle weirdly into lip lines or feel like glue. It’s a smooth, cream-ish, balmy, but opaque formula that feels nice on the lips.

I hate the Peach scent. It’s gross and artificial, and is genuinely is a turn-off for this product. I’m the type of person that can handle subtle fragrances (like the ones that L’Oréal lip products have or minty scents), but this peach smell is overbearing and so fake. I know that the gimmick of the products in this collection are the Peach smell and theme, but this is so excessive to me.

Overall, I find that the formula is really awesome and that although the Peach smell is strong, it is something that I can overlook the handful of times that I choose to wear a nude pink lip. It’s not a lip look I gravitate to often, so it isn’t a huge deal. I’m interested in the more coral and less pale shades in this collection, so I might pick one up as I do immensely enjoy the formula. 

What do you think about the food-themed cosmetics? Have you tried any?
