too faced melted liquified long wear lipstick

Guys. There are some beauty products that scream your name and like Siren’s song you cannot escape it.
Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetWhen I saw the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks at Sephora I was intrigued. Is it a gloss? Is it matte? Is the mainstream version of OCC Lip Tars? A girl needed answers! Being the intrepid beauty journalist that I am (HA!), I picked up two of the brightest shades and set forth to test out and see if it was worth it.

According to the brand Melted provides “the staying power of a stain, the intense color of a liquid lipstick and the high shine of a gloss” and since that seems like a whole lot to promise in one product, I had high hopes. For starters the applicator is pretty great and allows you to apply a little or a lot of product. It is buildable and the consistency is light to medium. At first it seems like a whole lotta color because these are insanely pigmented so be careful when you’re squeezing the product out. Application is smooth and you’re left with a rich, opaque color on your lips.
Too Faced MeltedI didn’t find any of the shades to be drying and they leave a semi matte finish. In terms of wear, these get on and stay on. The color lasted me pretty much an entire beach day (it leaves a stain behind once the color is gone). Above I have Melted Violet (a gorgeous magenta color that will be getting a lot of wear this summer) and Melted Fuchsia (a BRIGHT blue based pink).

If you’ve tried OCC Lip Tars but found them to be too messy, give these a go. I love how intense and opaque the colors are and the sponge tip applicator applies the color beautifully.

The Melted lipsticks retail for $21 and are available at Sephora and Too Faced.

    Great packaging melted, I love long wearing lipsticks & this one is a little condesending, a long wearing lipstick named “melted” hmm.

    These looks interesting! The packaging is very catchy. Did they just come out recently? I haven’t had a chance to look through the Too Faced section in Sephora. Oh well, I’ve got to try these! :) Thanks for sharing.

    Xox,

      Yes! These are fairly new and should still be in Sephora (and on the Too Faced website). Thanks for stopping by!
