It started with the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks. A cushiony soft lipstick that was applied straight from the tube using the angled sponge tipped applicator. I loved them, and used them all the time. I do still have a few which are probably way over their life span but the colours were sensational. They started off as just Melted, then in came the Melted Chocolates and the Melted Metallics. Melted Metallic Macaron was one of my personal favourites. It was a revolution for lip products back then to have something that wasn’t just a lipstick in a traditional bullet. Tides shifted, and like a bulldozer, the matte liquid lipstick came into town, wiping out how we viewed lipstick forever more. I admit, I fell for the liquid lipstick vibe hard and I still aboard the love train. Too Faced have killed it with their Melted range, and going forward they are still bringing out versions of their classics which are hitting it out of the park.
The Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipsticks come in a whopping 23 shades, with the Too Faced Melted Latex Glosses later being added, with a further 16 shades. To expand the range even more, 13 shades have been developed into the Too Faced Matte-Tallic range. With the same comfortable matte formulation, the Matte-Tallics are pretty special in that they dry down into a brushed metal finish. Metallics can be viewed as being a bit scary, especially if they are too over the top and you end up looking like a robot, but the Too Faced Matte-Tallics are more subtle than in your face. Think of a liquid lip that has the staying power whilst having a rich and luxurious metallic sheen.
With the formula having a metallic finish, I didn’t expect that it would have staying power of a standard matte lipstick however I still got a really generous wear time from it. It did wear off more in the centre of my lips which is totally normal, but on average 4-5 hours wear time was achieved. The shades that I have are Sugar Kisses; a very pale ballerina pink, You Better Work; a delicious chocolate brown and Breakup Makeup; a dusty rose with metallic sheen.
I’m quite enamoured with the Too Faced Melted Matte-Tallics and now have been talking about the original Melted range, I’m going to try and use those up and refresh my collection!This post may contain PR samples that have been sent to me for consideration for review however all my opinions will be my own.
