A Treat (Or Two) To Myself...

I am one of those people that never remember to treat themselves, either because I cannot decide on what to get or I just don't feel as though I have earned it. Saying that, this year I am trying to treat myself a little more and since January is over I thought I would gift myself a little something. Since they are both makeup bits, I thought you might want a little review today.
Too Faced is a brand I admire and definitely want to try more of in the future, but a lot of their products have a steeper price tag then my usual spending limit. I have been a little bored of my lip products lately and so I wanted some new shades, so this gave me the perfect excuse to try some Too Faced lippies.
Starting with a formulation I have wanted to try since they first released it, the Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipsticks. I have heard great things about this formula but I never knew what shade to go for but I just went for it and got the shade Child Star.
Swatching it, it looked like a muted nude/ pink shade which is something I thought I could pull off, and to my surprise I loved how it looked. It retails for £19 which I think is quite reasonable for something that is super luxurious, great quality ad something I know I will use a lot.
The formula impressed me most as it feels like nothing on the lips but the pigment is there, I also ate and drank with this, and it did not budge which I didn't think was possible but it is.
I also love the packaging, the clear tube and matte gold writing really makes the product look super luxurious and special.
The second lip product I got, I love just as much as the other but it is the complete opposite in terms of its formulation. When I found out that Too Faced were expanding their peach family I was beyond excited because some of you might know that the Sweet Peach Eye Shadow by Too Faced is one of my favourite palettes of all time, so I had high hopes for this range.
They brought out a Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss range which really interested me because they are an oil consistency but give a glossy look to the lip. Again, I was sort of torn on which shade to get but I went for the warm nude shade, which we all know I love.
It is called Papa Don't Peach and it is a very Grace shade which I know I am going to wear a bunch all year round. This retails for £16 which I think is a good price for something I know I am going to get my moneys worth out of. I love this formulation because it is so smooth and moisturizing on the lips but it gives your lips some colour as well as a lovely shine. It is also not sticky in the slightest and it lasts a fair amount of time since it doesn't claim to be long lasting. 
The packaging isn't as luxurious looking or as fancy as the Melted Matte but I like how sleek it looks and how you can see the shade quite easily through the clear tube. I also love the little peach that they put on the top of the lid, I think it is super cute.

Would you try either of these?
