I already told you how I much I ♥ Holiday Lip Sets in my last post so I’ll skip that spiel, but man oh man, how cute is this little bundle? The Too Faced Le Petit Trésor lipstick set is part of their new 2015 Holiday Collection. They have a handful of cute goodies to choose from this year including some great exclusive sets available at Ulta & Sephora. But of course this particular one was screaming my name.
The Le Petit Tresor set comes in an amazingly pretty sparkling pouch that contains 3 full size La Crème lipsticks in the shades: Nude Beach, Taffy and WHAM! (a new shade that is exclusive to this set.) I have to be honest and confess that I mostly bought it for WHAM! but for $29 you are pretty much getting 2 other lipsticks for free since they retail for $22 each. However, I got it for $23.20 by using a 20% off code that I had and buying it when Too Faced was having their “free shipping on any order” promotion. Score! 🙂
In general, the La Crème lipsticks are all very creamy with a ton of slip. Most of them are fairly opaque and feel hydrating and comfortable on the lips. The 2 lighter shades here (Nude Beach and Taffy) don’t seem to have as much staying power, as I only get about 3-4 hrs of wear time. They also apply slightly sheer and seem to settle into my lip lines a bit, but it’s only noticeable in my super up-close photos. WHAM! however, was nicely pigmented and I got about 4-5 hours of wear. The darker La Crème shades seem to be superior based on my past experiences with them.
I also have to mention that the glitter on the bag does come off a bit. The pieces are bigger, so it won’t be like a glitter bomb went off but it’s just something to be aware of.
• Nude Beach is a nude/pink
• Taffy is a peachy/pink marshmallow nude
• WHAM! (limited edition, exclusive shade) is a warm berry/red with multi-color sparkle. Note: The sparkle doesn’t feel gritty or drying on the lips which is nice!
My favorite of the 3 is definitely WHAM!. Nude Beach is nice and I will wear it occasionally, but Taffy is just a little too “bubblegum” looking for me…who knows, maybe my feelings for it will change in the summer when I have more color.

I am so happy I bought this set! It’s a stellar deal and the La Crème lipsticks are definitely some of the most comfortable ones out there. This set retails for $29 and you can find it at the retailers below:
