Product Review: Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick

photo 1-3I have been seeing Too Faced beauty products all over my social media lately. Up until now, I had only used the “Better Than Sex” Mascara as recommended to me by my friend Kelly. It was a lovely mascara, and it is high time I tried more of this little brand. When I saw the videos/ pictures of Melted Lipstick, I thought the pigmentation looked so rich and beautiful and since I am always on the look out for highly pigmented lip colours, I thought that this will be the next thing I try from Too Faced.

I actually had a difficult time deciding which one to pick up. All of the colours were luscious and enticing! I settled on “Melon” after a long internal debate, and figured it will be great throughout the spring and summer months.

Pigmentation – Wowzas these babies have colour that goes on and looks like perfection! I have been so disappointed in the past with glosses and lipsticks that do not go on like they look or gradually change over time your lips. This goes on rich and gives full coverage immediately, and if this is your thing I would highly suggest trying these out.

Texture – Typically long wear lip sticks are pretty dry and make your lips feel like paper in no time. This has a gloss texture going on, and remains comfy as long as it is on. One of the best textures I have tried in a long wear lip products.

Wearability – I would rate this as a medium for wearability. If you did not know already, there is always a trade off when it comes to lip products – generally the longer it stays on the drier if feels, and the more moist it feels the more quickly it wears off. This is a cozy medium for all areas as far as I am concerned. It stays on long enough without any of the typical long wear side effects likes flaking or peeling off.

photo-7Application – Often things that comes in tubes are awful to apply, but Too Faced has really given a lot of though to this gem of a product. The applicator tip is fine enough to get into every area of your lips without “globbing” the whole thing up and making a mess. They claim that there is no liner required, and I would agree with that claim 100%. Probably the only thing I would do is take a cotton swab and clean up around the lip line, and then apply concealer with a precision brush around it to give a super sharp look.

From their website:

DETAILS:

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.

MORE TO LOVE:

  • Too Faced Co-Founder and Creative Director Jerrod Blandino had never seen lipstick more beautiful, intense, rich and glossy than when it’s in its melted form in the cosmetic labs. With this inspiration, we created a lipstick liquified so it doesn’t lose its pigment or shine while keeping a comfortable, flexible and cushiony wear.
  • Provides high-impact, super rich, saturated pigment in a long-wear formula.
  • Precision tip applicator to allow for a clean, effortless application each time (no liner needed!)
  • Vegan-Friendly

Overall…. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!! I will be picking up more shades in the near future for sure. Love love love. Can’t wait for more!

What about all of you Foxes…. do you like a fresh pop of colour as the temperature starts to rise? Or do stick to neutrals year round?

“Dab foundation and powder around the lips to seal in the lip liner.  Sharpen the tip of a lip liner and fill in lips with it before applying lipstick. This way you will never have to re-touch your lipstick when at an event or at work or after a double cheeseburger (seriously).”

 

Thanks for today’s beauty tip Amy Pearl.  With New Year’s Eve upcoming we need all the help we can get keeping our lipstick on!
