I love mixing lip colors to make my unique lip shade. With brighter lipsticks, I like to tone them down with a nude lip crayon. With nude lipsticks, I like to line my lips first with neutral brownish-tone crayon to give my lips some base color so I would not look totally washed-out.
Bite high pigment pencil in Madeira
Too Faced melted liquified long wear stick in Melted Peony
These two are my small haul from Sephora. They are offering a choice of the mini version of lippy with purchase and I have been dying to try the new Too Faced liquified lipstick for the longest time.
Madeira is a creamy lip crayon which is a nude pink with some brown undertone. I prefer nude lippies with a hint of brown undertone. True nude lip products are so hard to wear on their own. I still want the neutral nude look but not look sick.
The free gift is of a decent size. Doesn't the picture on the packaging look interesting?
This has a sponge-tip applicator. A little goes a long way and this applicator is perfect to control the amount of product.

The texture of Too Faced liquified stick is very unique. It is not liquid-y, it is not a gloss, it is not a lipstick, not gel-like. It is a stain, gloss and lipstick all-in-one, according to Too Faced. It is not sticky at all and it is very pigmented. You only need a tiny bit and don't go overboard with it. It is a free gift and this is the only shade offered and I am so happy with the color. I will definitely buy the full-sized one once I'm done with this which I think this deluxe-sample sized would last me quite a while.
