Too Faced Perfect Red Perfect Lips Gives You Perfectly Red Lips!

When life gives you a head of retro curls… You do an FOTD with classic red lips! I’ve been meaning to talk about my first lip liner, Too Faced Perfect Red Perfect Lips for a while now, and there you go!

Before I really got into red, I never felt the need for a lip liner. My impression for lip liners was stuck in my childhood, where ladies really lined their lips and it has always seemed awkward to me. After I started exploring red lipsticks, I found out that some work well enough on their own, but others could do with a little help. I remembered reading about the new Too Faced Perfect Lips, so I decided to give Perfect Red a try!

Too Faced Perfect Lips have twist-up tops, so it saves the trouble and waste of having to sharpen a pencil. Part of the surface is slightly rubberized for an easy grip. I have twisted the pencil way up several times, and the mechanism works well enough to twist it back down again.

Too Faced Perfect Lips are designed to work with a wide range of colors, and Perfect Red is really neutral. It’s not too bright, not too dark, not too blue, and not too yellow. I have used it with a lot of my red lipsticks, and it blends in like nothing. The texture is pretty smooth and soft. Of course it can’t be as creamy as a lipstick, but it is neither sharp and pointy, nor does it tug and drag on the lips. It blends easily, sets fast, and lasts practically forever.

I have used Too Faced Perfect Red in two ways. I put the first layer of lipstick on, use the liner to line my lips, and then a second layer of lipstick. You have seen this here. It gives lips a crisp line and helps lipstick stay in place. The second way is as a lipstick, which is what I’m showing you today:

This outlasts regular lipsticks, though it could be slightly drying (this comes with the lasting power, though it is very mildly so). If you want some glossiness and a bit more moisturization, why not layer a lip gloss on top?

Here I’m pairing Dior Ceremony Red with Perfect Red:

Bottom line: Too Faced Perfect Red Perfect Lips is my first lip liner, so I don’t have a lot to compare this with. However, my experience with it is more than positive. It doesn’t tug, blends easily, and the color is pretty versatile. If you like red lipsticks, look into this one!

What are your favorite lip liners? Have you tried anything from Too Faced? What would you recommend?

PS: The retro curls come from my L’Oreal Professionnel Steampod experience. It is supposed to work like a steam iron, so the steam can push the nourishing cream and serum that go with the device into the hair. It looks like a bigger flat iron, and from what I could see it is used in the same way. My curls are a bit more relaxed after one day, but they’re still very much there!

    What a beautiful lip liner and colour! I usually have pretty good experiences with lip liners, even the drugstore ones. My favourites are from Revlon. I have one from Shu Uemura as well but don’t like the fact that I have to sharpen it because I’m lazy that way 😉

    • Sunny

      Haha it’s just a lot less messy when you don’t have to sharpen something!

  • Chris El

    I prefer not to use lip liners with the exception of a red lip when I feel it’s a necessity. You look gorgeous!

    • Sunny

      I know what you mean! I wouldn’t use one unless I have to, pretty much :) Thanks Chris!

  • Becca @ The Beauty Sample

    Whoa–your lips are like BOOM in these pics, Sunny!! (and I mean that in the BEST way possible!!) 😀

    • Sunny

      LOL thanks Becca! I think I need some more lip liners :)

  • beauties

    wow, you look so fierce in that first picture 😀

    • Sunny

      Haha thanks! That’s partially because I was running out of time, I think 😉

  • Marla

    I really like Too Faced products. Their Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo is one of the best powder highlighters I’ve tried.

    • Sunny

      Ahh thanks for the recommendation, Marla! It does look really pretty!

  • Emi at Project Swatch

    I love these photos of you, so gorgeous!

    I don’t wear lip liner very often – and I’m just as likely to wear it as my full lipcolor than as liner – but my favorites are actually some inexpensive ones from Jordana, they’re just so creamy and lovely :)

    • Sunny

      Thanks so much Emi! I’ve heard great things about Jordana, but it’s yet another brand I have nooo access to!

  • Redhotjillypeppers

  • Tracy@Beauty Reflections

    Love your red red lips and the curly hair too! That Steam Pod thingy looks pretty cool!

    • Sunny

      Thanks Tracy! They told me my hair will stay more tamed even after 3 washes. I’m still waiting to prove them right :)

  • pamela at Jadeinthepalace

    wow it looks like a really good lip liner!! the color looks rich and creamy..
    you look gorgeous , Sunny! love the retro look :)

    • Sunny

      Thanks Pamela! It’s not a pointy liner that drags *phew*

  • Larie

    I need to start looking into hair things – love your curls! And the red lip, of course 😀

    • Sunny

      Thanks Larie :) I got a straightening iron a while ago. I have to practice curling my hair with that!

  • Angela @ The Unprofessional Beauty Blog

    Such a beautiful color. Great for fall.

    • Sunny

      Fall and winter! Plus anytime you want to wear red :)

  • ValleyDoll

    You are looking fierce with those red lips ! I spot a new Bond Girl 😉 !

    • Sunny

      LOL thanks so much Eva! I wish I knew how to curl my own hair that way. Need some practice :)

  • Fruity

    Girl, you’re a naturally born beauty who looks great in red lipsticks!

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks girly! I’m sure there’s a red or two out there for everyone 😉

  • Jacqueline

    I need to use lip liners especially when I wear red lipstick. My lips aren’t very defined especially the corners of my mouth so I need all the hep I can get. Burberry lip liner in Brick Red is my go to lip liner when I wear warmer red lipsticks. It is creamy and glides onto my lips.

    • Sunny

      Oh trust me, EVERYBODY needs some help when it comes to wearing bold lipsticks! I wish you didn’t recommend Burberry lip liners. MORE on my Burberry wish list now!

  • Rainy Days & Lattes

    Hi Sunny! You look fabulous!! :) I haven’t had much experience with lip liners either but I can tell you that there are so many on the market that are gorgeous! :) This one looks very nice, i love how you don’t have to sharpen it! 😛 I’ve tried a few some Rimmel which I think are great despite it still having to be sharpened :p

    • Sunny

      Thanks so much Jen! The twist-up kind is so convenient!

  • Meryl @ Memoiselle

    That’s a daring color! I am so envious of you that you can pull all daring colors!! Red, orange and even plum 😀

    • Sunny

      Thanks Meryl! I’m sure you can too! You just have to try some and figure out what works :)

  • petra

    You look so pretty with red lips, and your curly hair <3

    • Sunny

      Thanks Petra! I thought these two go well together :)

  • Lily (@ChloeAsh)

    Yup, lip liners and red lipsticks go extremely well together. Love this look Sunny! I love the curls :-)

    • Sunny

      Thanks Lily! Time for me to bust my straightening iron out and see if I can reproduce the look :)

  • Claire

    What a look! Red is just amazing, this look is great for the christmas season as well! You look amazing in curls, so chic :)

    • Sunny

      Thanks so much Claire :) This one works with so many of my lipsticks. I’m glad to have it in my stash!

  • Joyce (bronzerbunny)

    i’ve been thinking about getting lip liner but don’t know where to start. I did have a good impression of this one, so maybe i’ll check out one of the other shades! But i’m super curious about the Becca dual ended lip liner, so I may just order that instead… Anyway, this looks gorgeous on you, and you did such a great job on your curls! :)

    • Sunny

      Thanks Joyce! I didn’t do the curls though. The L’Oreal ladies did! I haven’t really looked into Becca lip liners, but now I am going to!

  • deijsprinses

    You look stunning!

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks girly!
