I've wanted to try the Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks ($25CDN) by Too Faced ever since they first came out, but found that none of the shades really spoke to me. Don't get me wrong, the shades are nice but none of them really made me go "I need this". Nonetheless, I still wanted to try one so I was excited to get my hands on this mini size. As usual, here's the description for this product before we move into the actual review:
"The shine of a gloss, lasting power of a stain, and pigment-packed color of a liquid lipstick, all in one high-impact formula. Bold, long-wearing color glides on cleanly with the precision tip applicator, delivering rich color with staying power."
Like most Too Faced products, the packaging of this liquid lipstick is adorable. The color of the tube corresponds with each shade, and comes with a twist-off golden cap. Inside you'll find a doe-foot applicator which dispenses product when you squeeze the tube.
The shade that I have is Melted Fuchsia, and is a hot pink with a shine finish. The color is quite opaque with just one swipe, and the formula is really nice and smooth. A little goes a long way with this product, and you don't need all that much to fill both lips.
The doe-foot applicator makes the application process very easy and precise, and the formula is comfortable to wear. It doesn't emphasize dry spots either (a struggle of always having chapped lips) which is awesome. It does transfer if you're having a drink or kissing cats, but it's not really noticeable on the lips. As for the lasting power, I find that it wears well for two to three hours. The color fades evenly and it leaves a nice stain behind though, so touching up isn't something you have to worry too much about. The verdict? I like it a lot, and if they ever do come out with a shade that makes me go "I need it" then it's definitely something I would purchase a full size of!
