Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Creams in Juicy Melons REVIEW and swatches

I love pretty lip colors but a lot do not show up on my pigmented red lips. And if they do, chances are they are too stark white which leaves me looking like a clown or dry my lips out. Good thing I tried Too Faced La Creme color drenched lip creams at Sephora! They are so buttery and so pigmented. I chose the color Juicy Melons, which is a creamy bright coral color with a hint of pink. It really stood out on my lips. See below for swatches and review.

As you can see, Juicy Melons came out as a very pink color on camera. It is actually more coral in person. This color was easy to apply and also stayed for a long time. I love that it didn't smell like lipstick nor did it dry my lips out. Overall, I really like texture, I just wished it wasn't as expensive. The packaging makes up for a lot of the cost. The gold tube felt very sturdy in my hands and the cap protected the lipstick from accidentally twisting up in the tube.

Texture: very buttery and smooth. 
Application: One swipe of this lip cream covered my lips. It is pretty pigmented and easy to apply. There was no tugging or dryness.
Scent: It smelled fruity- not like lipstick at all!
Staying power: If I do not eat, this can last up to 4-5 hours on my lips

Overall: I really like that this color shows up on my pigmented lips without making me look like a clown. The texture is buttery and smooth to apply but still stay on my lips for a long time. Even as the color wore off, my lips did not feel parched. It has a sheen finish and makes your lips look healthy. With a sturdy and fancy packaging, $21 isn't too bad.
