It’s beginning to look, and feel, like fall. So, it’s only natural everything is suddenly pumpkin-flavored, scented, or colored. And make-up is no different. Too Faced Cosmetics recently came out with two limited-edition products for fall, aptly named Pumpkin Spice Palette and Pumpkin Spice Matte Lipstick.
This palette has 18 warm shades, including:
- Whipped Cream (warm light beige)
- Crisp (warm peachy pink)
- Fall For It (medium peach)
- Pumpkin Spice (rustic yellow)
- Ginger Spice (pumpkin orange)
- Cocoa Drizzle (light chocolate brown)
- Fall Vibes (green gold)
- Sweetie Pie (light yellow brown)
- Falling For You (gray green)
- Spice, Spice Baby (light red brown)
- You Spicy (magenta)
- Warm & Cozy (deep red brown)
- Oh My Gourd (ballet pink)
- A La Mode (rosy nude)
- Wanna Piece Of Me? (silver lilac)
- Love You A Latte (dusty mauve)
- PSL & Chill (multi purple)
- Spice Of Life (deep purple)
It goes on like a gloss, and dries into an ultra-matte opaque finish.
Both have a very subtle hint of pumpkin spice but are not overly powerful. Out of these two items, I especially loved the palette. It’s mostly mattes, which is a good thing. I think the six metallic shades are (mostly) somewhat dull and take a lot of layering to get that vibrant glittery sheen you’d expect from a metallic shade. That said, there are a few shades that are especially my favorite. I could see using Whipped Cream, Fall for It, Cocoa Drizzle, Warm & Cozy, and Love You a Latte regularly. And, I think Pumpkin Spice, Ginger Spice, Spice, Spice Baby and A La Mode, while not something I would use every day, are still beautiful.
The formula itself can become a little powdery, but does not really have any fall-out. (There’s a very subtle fall-out from some of the metallic shades.) The shades blend beautifully, but some are more pigmented than others.
The liquid lipstick is a very vibrant orange-red. It goes on smooth and lasts. I have no qualms about the product whatsoever, but the shade itself is orange-red, which can be hard to pull off. It definitely leans more heavily on burnt orange, as the name would suggest. That said, it’s not a color I’d wear often or past fall.
