Too Faced Melted Longwear Lipstick | Review ♥

Lipsticks…Again. Like I’ve mentioned a thousand times before, I am a lipstick hoarder. I’ve completely come to terms with it and I just can’t help it. To feed my fun little addiction I decided to try these new Too Faced Melted Lipsticks out! I’ve had some of them for a while but I wanted to really make sure I used them enough to give a good review.

So far I’ve collected six out of the ten lipsticks. I have the colors Melted Nude, Melted Coral, Melted Peony, Melted Fig, Melted Fuchsia, and Melted Berry. The Melted Peony is a little baby version because it was given to me as a gift for purchasing a certain amount of Too Faced cosmetics at Ulta.

Melted Lippies

Price: $21.00

Where Can You Purchase? Ulta, Sephora, Too Faced.com

Too Faced Claims: “Get the staying power of a stain, the intense color of a liquid lipstick and the high shine of a gloss in one long-wear formula. Using exclusive technology to keep cauldrons of molten lipsticks liquid and creamy, Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick comfortably coats lips in bursts of intense, high-impact, super rich, saturated color that lasts for hours.” – TooFaced.com

Packaging: I’m not really a huge fan of lipsticks in little squeeze tubes. It reminds me of those oily lip glosses from lip smackers that I would use when I was like five. As an adult I think I have the capability of using a wand and applying it on my own. I get that it’s meant to save time but I feel like you don’t have control over how much product you’re applying or squeezing out for that matter. Besides the squeeze tube part,  I do like their precision tip applicator at the end of the squeeze tube. It sort of feels like the higher end lip gloss tips and I like that it’s soft and applies the lipstick perfect without having to use a lip liner.

Consistency: This product is meant to be creamy and it is. The whole concept is that it’s a melted lipstick, which is really what it looks like.

Application: It’s super easy to apply, no lip liner needed. The darker colors do feather so you may want to use lip liner just for that purpose but it’s not necessary for staying within the lip line.

Finish/Lasting Power: The overall finish is a shiny matte if that makes any sense. It does have a tiny bit of a sheen to it but Too Faced claims to have high shine gloss which I wouldn’t agree with. When I think of high shine gloss I think of extremely glossy lips and that’s not what I get out of these, which for me is perfectly fine. As for the lasting power, they definitely do last a long time. Too Faced doesn’t specify how long they can last but I’ve gotten a good 4-5 hours out of them. I do believe the lighter colors last more than the darker ones, but the darker ones end up turning into more of a stain.

Overall Thoughts: Overall, these are some of my go-to products for on the go. It’s so easy to apply and touch up. They can be drying especially on my lips since I already have over dried lips. If you apply Chapstick beforehand you should be perfectly fine! I recommend these, especially the fun colors!
