Today I’m going to do a review on the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks. These things have seriously been all the rave lately and you know I just had to try to see what’s up! I’ve been wearing it for a few weeks now. So keep reading to see what I think about these lipsticks.
The packaging and innovation behind this lipstick is literally brilliant. The lipstick comes in a squeeze tube like some lip glosses do, The applicator is kind of a sponge texture and once you squeeze enough product onto the applicator you can spread it on your lips. It is actually a little bit easier and less messy to apply than an actual tube of lipstick. It’s very interesting. The product also won’t dry out or melt like lipsticks can when they are in a tube. I think Too Faced was really onto something when they created this.
In my opinion the color choice is pretty limited. There are only 5 colors in the line (one extra color exclusive to only Sephora) and most of them are bright/bold not as easy to wear colors. If you don’t like neons or bold lips you probably won’t like this. I really like bold lips so I picked Melted Violet. The color is so beautiful and really pigmented. It goes on the lips the exact same color it comes out. It’s very opaque so you don’t need many coats to get the true color. What I don’t like about it is the formulation… it is so drying. My lips can be super moisturized and soft and literally minutes after putting this on my lips are dry and flaky. Also it doesn’t last on the lips as long as I was hoping. It comes off pretty quickly if you eat or drink anything. I have a lot of lipsticks that stay on much longer than this.
These are $21 each which is a lot for a lipstick. But because it is in a squeeze tube and so pigmented you don’t need too much product meaning it should last a pretty long time… or at least I hope so :). These can be bought at Ulta or Sephora. Click here to see the other colors!
I love the pigmentation, color, and innovation of this lipstick. I think the thought behind it is super cool and if the formulation could be perfected it would be a really great product. I don’t like that it dries out the lips so fast, and it doesn’t last on the lips as long as I personally like. I’m kind of that girl that forgets to re-apply lipstick after lunch so I need something to stay on during lunch. I also think it’s too expensive, if it wasn’t drying I would think the price is reasonable. Would I buy this or another color again? Not unless they reformulate it making it a moisturizing lipstick.
