Too Faced La Creme Lip Cream & Lip Balm in Honey Bear, Just Kissed & Sweet Maple Review & Swatches

It's no secret, I LOVE Too Faced Cosmetics Lip Creams! The colors are great and they're very moisturizing. I added 2 more to my collection (see the others here and here and here)! Honey Bear and Sweet Maple. I think Too Faced is playing an April Fool's joke on me, because BOTH shades are extremely close in color. In the tubes they look the same. When I swatched them on my hands, they looked the same. It was only when I photographed them, that I could see a slight difference. Sweet Maple is a smidgen darker than Honey Bear. Click on the pictures to make them larger and you'll see that slight difference. I also wanted to try Too Faced's lip balm, so I purchased it in Just Kissed. It's not bad, but it's not great either! Fresh's lip balms, have really spoiled me with their performance. The color for Just Kissed (lip balm) is super weak and it's not very moisturizing (which I found surprising). If you want a great lip balm, then go with Fresh. It's still #1 in my book. Thank You Little Luxury List for the Etude House face towels. I used them in the pics below and will be using them in my daily face care. They are so cute :)

Ivana Split said...

All of the three look a bit similar to me, but sweet marple is the one I like the most....Althought, I must say they all look great on you lips.

great swatches and pics.



Honey Bear is such a wonderful color! So natural, loving it!
Thank you so much for your comment on my blog, Kim!!! Really appreciate it!

I love too faced so much! Honey Bear looks awesome ;-)))

Stanislava E. said...

Lip balms with colour? Sounds nice! I'd try them all!


Jackie Harrison said...

I have to be honest the shades are very similar if I had to pick one is the last one is darker, great job in the tutorial love the cupcake.

Lilli said...

I know you love them Kim, glad you got other 2 to add to your collection. You are right, they seem very similar but looking at the pic I can see sweet maple darker even though honey bear is my fav (how sweet is the name!). What a shame the lip balm though, Fresh is still onto my wishlist. Hugs! xo

Oh wow! The colors are just so rich and full and beautiful. I like the Just Kissed best because it looks to pinkishly natural. Great Review.

Stay Wonderful Always,

Totally digging that Honey Bear on you, Kim! Such an awesome-looking shade...well, both are:) And totes agree about Fresh....their lip balms are the best!

Elizabeth Rose Hisle said...

You def need to keep Honey Bear around. The color is beautiful!!! Sweet Maple is only barely different... but Honey Bear is a nicer name so I'ma stick with that one. :P I really will have to run and buy it.

I really like this Honey Bear's shade, it looks great on you and in general this lipstick has great color :)


Cee said...

Those tow shades are quite similar, but I do see a subtle difference when you're wearing them. I've only started trying Too Faced products this year, but what I have tried so far, I've loved, so I'll have to look for these next time I'm on a Sephora run :)

Shireen L. Platt said...

First of all, I absolutely adore your photography set up here, Kim! Super duper uber cute! LOL!

And wow, you weren't kidding about both shades being similar, I can hardly tell the differences other than Maple Syrup is a tad glossier? Nevertheless, both looks really lovely on you. xx

Those face towels are so sweet and you've displayed them in a really cute way. The lipsticks are all beyond gorgeous - Honey Bear is undoubtedly my favourite of the three! :)

These look like the perfect lips but better shades though they definitely are very close in color.

Honey Bear is a cute name, but I think the color of Sweet Maple is better, even though they are similar.

Lauren Carter said...

They do look similar! They're very pretty, though. I love the way this lipstick feels on my lips. Thanks for sharing!

Ashley said...

Those two shades do look super similar! That's a great shade on you Kim, I definitely need to try too faced lipsticks since I haven't yet! That's too bad about the lip balm though!

I'm with you, I LOVE Too Faced Lip Creams! I've got a small collection of four, now wishing I'd added Honey Bear to the mix. If only they weren't so expensive, I'd own them all! Enjoy your new goodies!!

Much Love,
