Sweet Peach Lip Oil

 When I first heard about Too Faced bringing out the Sweet Peach collection, I was absolutely over the moon, head over heels excited. They're one of my go-to brands, and I always give in to the hype with new releases. I gravitated towards the Sweet Peach Lip Oils since lip gloss is kind of my new obsession; I think I have a subconscious quest to source the least sticky glosses (because if a lip gloss is tacky in the slightest, then it ain't for me.) If you've read this blog before then you'll know that Too Faced lip products are my holy grail...until I met this lip oil.
It's not all negativity up in here, because I hate doing that and will avoid it at all costs. There are three things about this product that I completely love, and there's only one thing that I don't get on with. So there's that. Maybe I just got a bad batch?
I picked mine up in the shade 'Peach Fuzz', which is a beautiful baby peach colour that looks ever so pretty in its packaging - which actually happens to be one of my favourite parts, along with the cute names that all the shades have. I think the simple packaging is gorgeous, and I like that you can see the exact shade of the product through the transparent tube. There's also an adorable little peach on the end of each oil; I now consider peaches to be cute, which isn't something I thought I'd ever type but there we go. The lip oil itself also smells so flipping good, and if you hadn't guessed by now (really??), it's scented like peaches. Honestly, I can't think of anything better.

This product uses peach oil, which means ladies and gentlemen, it isn't sticky. I'm not even slightly exaggerating - I'm the Queen of rejecting glosses/oils due to stickiness, and I can hand on heart say that this is the least tacky formula I've ever come across. That's why I'm so sad that I've had to shove it in my Alex drawers in sadness, because for some reason, I'm not a fan of the way it looks on my lips. I don't know whether I picked too light of a shade, but the oil clumps on my lips and looks really odd for some reason, and although it can be salvaged when you apply it over a pink lipstick, I'm disappointed that I don't like this on its own. If these weren't £16 I'd like to try a darker shade like 'Papa Don't Peach' and see how that works out for me, but for now, I'm going to admit defeat. I hate giving negative make up reviews, especially for brands that I usually love, but I want to be honest and give this a 5/10. It baffles me considering the amount of positive response I've seen towards these oils, but my lips don't lie (oh hello Shakira), and they tell me that this product is a bit iffy.
Update: After watching swatch video after swatch video on Youtube, I have a feeling that this might just be a lighter-shade issue like I originally thought.
Have you tried these lip oils? I'd love to know how you got on with them!


  1. I've heard great things about these so I've been curious to try, I love the sound of the formula! Such a shame you don't like the shade! x

    1. I know I was so disappointed to post such a negative review :( Hope they work out better for you if you end up trying them!
