TokyoMilk Dark Femme Fatale Lip Elixir - Salted Caramel No. 36 - Yumm!

During my birthday splurge in August, I picked up a Tokyo Milk Dark Femme Fatale Lip Elixir in No. 36-Salted Caramel.  Sephora describes it's notes as: ""Sweet Cream, Sea Salt, Caramelized Sugar, Toasted Vanilla Bean."  They could've saved themselves some word space and just used one word: HEAVEN.

I am not kidding.  It is a rich, heavenly, dense scent.  It is almost too sweet - I can't use it before lunch time before I don't like sweets before then, LOL.  It's literally one of the most potent products I've come across.  Yummmmmm.
 The texture is unlike other lip products I have, and believe me, I have more than a few.  I've probably mentioned more than once that primers and lip ANYTHINGS are my favorite products to try.  It is almost as if a rubber, protective coating is smeared across the lips.

Sounds weird, right?  I mean that in a good way, a really good way.  You can literally feel it working and sinking into your lips.

My only complaint about this product is the tin itself.  Although it is a nice, open package that will allow me to get to every bit of the product, it is one of those pop-open tins that you have to wrestle with to open every time.  The edge has a little ridge you have to pop open.  This packaging is NOT friendly to someone who adores a chip-free mani!

I actually Facebooked them for suggestions of other products in JARS and they did get back to me.  If it is the same formula, I will def repurchase in a jar.  In the meantime, I pretty much have to ask my boyfriend to open it for me, and he gets annoyed and rolls his eyes every time.  I may have to de-pot and re-pot some of this into something a little more user friendly...and as I type this, I am sitting here laughing at myself.

I can't be the only one!  Let me know I'm not crazy!!!! Do you prefer products in tins, jars, pots, tubes, and why?!?!!?!?

Leave me comments or FB me!

I am continuing to try to use up products that have been laying around, including perfumes. So far, so good. Let me show you what I used in ...
