I’m sitting on my couch watching Can’t Hardy Wait, candles lit and Christmas lights on. My house feels cozy and warm. I’ve been holding back on some makeup reviews for a while because I didn’t have all the shades I wanted to review.
|Too Faced Melted Lipstick|
Right now I’m a little obsessed with the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick. I know they’ve been around for a while now, but they’re new to me. I love the colors, I love the pigment. The Too Faced site states that they have the “staying power of a stain with the intense color of a liquid lipstick”. Well, they definitely don’t have the staying power of a stain or liquid lipstick, but I’ll talk about that later. If I’m not mistaking, I heard somewhere that they were created with the idea of melted tube lipsticks in mind, hence the name. I can’t even tell you how many lipsticks I’ve ruined just because I left them in my hot car to “melt”.
|Melted Candy, Melted Fuchsia and Melted Jelly Donut|
There are 18 colors in the regular line of Melted Lipsticks and there are two new lines, Melted Metals and Melted Chocolate. Of the regular melted line I have five, Melted Marshmallow, a candy pink, Melted Fuchsia, a bright fuchsia, Melted Candy, a bright fuchsia pink, Melted Jelly Donut, dragon fruit pink and Melted Ruby, a blood red. I still want to get Melted Chihuahua, a dusty mauve and Melted Berry, a berry red. I may pass on the Melted Chihuahua though. Melted Candy and Melted Fuchsia look similar, but there is a slight difference in the color. Melted Candy is a bit darker than the Melted Fuchsia. You probably don’t need both. Sephora has a Melted Rainbow (magenta) that is a VIB Rouge exclusive.
|Melted Ruby, my FAVORITE color.|
Of the colors I have, Melted Ruby has to be my favorite. I’m very fair skinned and this color makes my lips really pop. It looks great for the Holidays.
The lipsticks go on as a liquid and do tend to dry, but not as a matte. There is quite a bit of transfer, but after a few hours the lipsticks tend to stain my lips. They aren’t like a long lasting liquid lipstick, where if you reapply, your lips get dry and flaky. You can reapply and they’ll be all right. I noticed that Marshmallow has a much creamier texture than the other colors that I own.
They’re labeled as a “liquified long lasting lipstick”, however, they aren’t that long lasting. These colors do feather and get into the fine lines. That I don’t like. They do come off after eating, drinking, and just plain old kissing my husband. So, there’s A Lot of transfer, at least for me.
They have a slight fragrance. I can’t seem to place it, but it’s warm and comforting. The packaging is cute and easy to carry in my mini makeup bag for my purse. The applicator is just ok. Start off slow and build up the product. Be careful, it can get messy! I recommend using a liner with all of the colors, even the lighter lipsticks. I have a few lip liners to match the darker/brighter shades, other than that I use a clear wax liner. I heard they work even better with a lip primer, but I’ve never tried it so I can’t comment from experience.
I don’t care for the Melted Metals, they don’t seem to be as pigmented at the Melted Lipsticks. I have no experience whatsoever with the Melted Chocolate line. I’m a little curious about the Melted Honey and Melted Cherries, but I haven’t seen them in any stores to swatch. I’ve only seen them on the Sephora website and there isn’t much of a color description, or any description for that matter. I know that three of the six colors are like the Melted Metal line. I’ll pass on those!
At $21 a piece they’re bright and fun and I feel like you totally get a lot of product for the price. These aren’t as great at the NARS Audacious Lipsticks (but they are cheaper), because those are my absolute favorite lipsticks of all time!

You can’t see the difference in the Melted Candy and Melted Fuchsia in this photo, but you can see the slight difference in color in the photo above. The Fuchsia is a bit brighter. In this photo you can also see the different consistency of the Melted Marshmallow compared to the other colors.
Happy Movie Monday!
To quote Melrose Place actress Heather Locklear, “You can’t keep changing men, so you settle for changing your lipstick.”
Too Faced Melted Lipsticks get 4 out of 5 Gerber Daisies because the wide range of colors are vibrant and fun, but there’s a lot of transfer and I don’t care for the Metals (that’s just my preference).
