The Too Faced Melted Lipsicks have long been on the list of products which I have wanted to try. 2015 marked the year of the birth of my liquid lipstick obsession and I couldn’t quite believe my luck when one turned up in my December 2015 My Little Box.
The colour which arrived was Fuschia – a very me Barbie pink shade on the surface, the shade is almost a smidge too blue toned, on my oliveish skin tone I don’t think it’s 100% flattering, but it’s not unwearable.
I find the formula quite odd, it has the same dry kind of feeling that makes it feels like it’s completely locked into place, but it’s no where near as budge proof as other liquid lipsticks which I’ve tried. I kissed my partner on the cheeks whilst out Christmas shopping – thinking I’d be safe as I’ve got . Then had to do a mummy style lick on the finger clean to his face as it had left a whopping great kiss on his cheek. But as long as you’re not eating, drinking or kissing (!) it does seem to stay put.
The thing I found most disappointing was the actual application itself, the product comes in a squeezy tube with a foam pad where the product squeezes through (which in self doesn’t seem very hygenic or like it would be very nice after a year for example), but my real problem with the foam pad is that I couldn’t get it to create a crisp line. Maybe that’s an issue with the small sample size, maybe it’s the same size foam pad as normal, I’m unsure! But the foam pad just creates a fuzzy outline and it will take me a lot longer than any other lip product to sit and get it looking acceptable.
Whilst disappointed with the overall product, I’m still glad I’d received this as a sample as I know now that they’re probably not the product I’d like to try more from. I’ve recently tried the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream and have worn that most days over the Christmas period, The formula is everything I want it to be and it’s a fraction of the cost of the Too Faced Melted ones too!
