Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick

Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick - $28.00 CDN

I love Too Faced!  Even more, I totally love their eyeshadow palettes! I love them so much that I own a few of them, especially their Chocolate Bar Palette series.  I swear they need to come out with a third one this year!  Too Faced makeup is so amazing that I would literally own just about every product if I could.  So when they came out with these liquid lipsticks I knew I had to have them.  

I looked through all the colors when they were released on Sephora.  While the range of colors were awesome, however I normally stick within the pink and nude shades.  So I ordered the Melted Peony color based on the swatches that a Youtuber demonstrated.  I was so excited to try it out that I spend the next three days watching all sorts of Youtube videos on these liquid lipsticks! 

These liquid lipsticks are all matte.  While they do not come across dull, but they do lack shine and sparkle.  So if you are looking for that, then these are not for you.  These mattes are vibrant without the disco ball effect.  Another great thing about these liquid lipsticks is that when they start to wear off, you are not left with that ugly lipstick ring around stain.  You know, where its still visible on the outer portion of your lips but completely gone in the middle.  Another great thing is their sponge applicator.  I love this fact because liquid lipstick is very slippery, so having a sponge tip applicator helps to keep the color on target as you spread it around your lips for a smooth and polished finish without all the mess. 

When my Too Faced Melt Peony finally arrived, I broke open the box like it was going out of style! I applied the lipstick and let it set in! I love how beautiful the color was. It was a pretty muted pink that was bright. However after wearing it for an hour, I hated it! It melted right into the lines of my lips and left them feeling dry, extenuated my lip lines and just looked cracked all around! I had no clue what had happen. So of course I hit the net! The more I read online, the more I found people complaining about the same problem. However to counteract this problem, it was recommended to apply an emollient lip balm underneath in order to prevent it from settling into dry lines and keeping your lips moist. So every time I wore this, I found myself applying lip balm for preventative measures. I wanted to order their Melted Nude color, but held off as I didn't really like the fact that I needed lip balm in order to get this product to cooperate.

About six months later, Too Faced came out with a whole new ranges of colors for their melted liquid lipsticks.  I fell in love with their Melted Sugar color.  It has got to be one of the most beautiful nudes I have ever seen.  However based on the last issue with the formula, I wasn't sure if I wanted to bother with it altogether.  Nonetheless, about two months later, my amazing friend, Jenny sent me a baby gift with the Melted Sugar color as a treat for me!!  I was so in love with the fact that I actually had this color in my house that I put it on right away!  I completely forgot to apply the lip balm before hand, but it didn't matter.  This liquid lipstick held on so well and melted right into my lips in a creamy type of way.  It lasted for hours and didn't budge one bit.  I was amazed not only on how pigmented it was for being completely matte, but just how amazing it felt. 

I read later somewhere that some of the liquid lipsticks had the problem of settling into lines and coming across really dry.  However, I also read that once they released their second batch of new colors; it seems as if the formula was changed and the creaminess was on "fleek!"  Truth be told, whatever it is, I like it.  There is in my opinion a massive difference with the formula of the first batch and the formula of the second batch.  At this point if its true that they have re-formulated the texture of this product, then that means I can buy my long awaited Melted Nude!

Too Faced is truly one of my favorite makeup company's that always puts out quality makeup.  So when Melted Peony failed on me, I had a feeling it was either a fluke or a problem with the batch.  Nonetheless, now that it has been corrected, my love for Too Faced can continue in the form of buying more of their Melted Liquid Lipsticks!  Have you seen their new Melted Metal?  Of course I plan to try those out as well! They look awesome on Youtube!

Well their you have it, my review on Too Faced Melt Liquid Lipsticks!  Have you tried any of their colors?  Let me know down below what you think of them!

Keep Smiling!
