Too Faced Lip of Luxury Lipsticks in Pink Flamingo, Centerfold and Sex Kitten

Too Faced Lip of Luxury Lipsticks

When Too Faced had their Vintage Sale a couple of weeks back, I couldn't resist picking up a few more of their Lip of Luxury Lipsticks.

First of all, I already have one, Free Love, and I'm a big fan of the formula.

Secondly, they were on sale for $8 and that was just too good a deal to pass up.

I chose Pink Flamingo, Centerfold and Sex Kitten.

I've actually had my eye on Pink Flamingo for quite some time - not too surprisingly, considering that it's a peachy-corall-y shade, huh? - but for some reason, I never actually picked it up.

Too Faced Lip of Luxury Lipstick in Pink Flamingo
Too Faced describes Pink Flamingo as peach, but it's deeper than a traditional peach so I'd call it more of a coral shade.  It has subtle gold glitter throughout for a really pretty sparkling effect.

I love this shade.  I've had to stop myself from wearing it every day since I got it.

Too Faced Lip of Luxury Lipstick in Centerfold
I chose Centertfold because I thought it would be a pretty everyday color - Too Faced describes it as  a soft beige, but there's nothing beige about it if you ask me. It's a lovely mauve-y YLBB shade that really does go with most looks. It has a cream finish with no shimmer or glitter at all, which I think makes it easy to wear everyday too.

If you have the NYX Round Lipstick in Thalia, Centerfold is very similar.  Thalia seems to have slightly rosier undertones, though.

Too Faced Lip of Luxury Lipstick in Sex Kitten
I bought Sex Kitten as an attempt to go outside my comfort zone - and I thought it would be a gorgeous shade for fall.  Too Face describes it as a sparkly berry wine and that's pretty accurate.  I tend to shy away from darker lip colors like this because with my fair skin, I can look a little too goth, but this shade is actually bright enough to flatter lighter skin tones.

Like Pink Flamingo, it's got subtle gold glitter throughout too so that helps with the brightening effect too.

I am absolutely thrilled with all three shades (though Pink Flamingo is my clear cut fave) and as I mentioned before, I really like the Too Faced Lip of Luxury formula.  It's creamy and non-drying, but it lasts for a good four or five hours - and that's pretty impressive for me because I am constantly drinking.

I should probably mention the packaging too  - the Lip of Luxury Lipsticks come in super cute metallic pink cases with a big, old rhinestone on top.

I always feel so fancy when I whip this tube out in the ladies' room...

What lipstick colors are you looking forward to wearing this fall?
