Review & Swatches: Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Violet and Melted Coral


Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Violet and Melted Coral
Just in time for spring and summer, Too Faced has come out with some seriously pigmented liquid lippies that promise long wear for the sweltering days ahead - days I'm not sure are coming anytime soon, amiright, Midwest? In all of the promotional images I've seen for the Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick, the images of lips are drenched with an opaque lip color with a pretty thick-looking liquid texture, leading me to believe these would be a type of long-wearing lipstick/lip gloss hybrid. Not quite...

I picked up the shades Melted Violet (vibrant violet) and Melted Coral (a hot coral). Both apply smoothly and have a cream finish - no shimmer or sparkle. The only difference in formula I noticed between the two is that Melted Coral has a tendency to fall in any fine lip lines you might have, and doesn't flatter dry, flaking lips as well as Melted Violet does. While it took two coats to get both to appear similar on my lips as they did in the images, I found that the texture would never fully set that way before it would wipe of on a cup or get eaten away. Still, the pigment underneath stained the lips for hours, staying just as vibrant at hour 4 as it was at the start. One thing to note with the wear, however is that a balm is definitely necessary if you are prone to dry lips. These aren't what I would call nourishing!

The packaging is a convenient squeeze tube with a built-in applicator that manages to get a relatively precise application - great for on the go! Overall, I think there is a place in some makeup-lovers' collection for these long-wear, vibrant lip stains, but those with lips prone to dryness or flaking will want to look elsewhere for high impact pigment with nourishing wear. While there are many alternatives out there (like MUFE's Aqua Rouge, or Cover Girl's All Day Lip Color), the colors here are hard to duplicate.
