Too Faced isn't really a brand I've tried too much of in the past but when these were released oh boy, they got some rave reviews! I'm all about long wear lipsticks so i just had to jump on the bandwagon and pick a couple of shades up. At the time i purchased these Too Faced only had 5 shades available, making it a little easier to choose (although I'm still lusting over the violet shade), but have since released a further five. Melted Candy... You will be mine!
I was half expecting these to be a little like OCC Lip Tars but was pleasantly surprised with the formula and texture. They truly are like a melted lipstick; slightly thin in consistency, opaque in colour but extremely comfortable on the lips. The applicator isn't my favourite, a kinda foamish tip that the product comes through, but they are still relatively easy to apply.
All the shades are absolutely stunning but i was completely drawn to these two, Melted Peony and Melted Fuchsia. Your perfect every day pink and a more daring bold shade that to be totally honest i haven't been reaching for quite as much. These both wear beautifully and on me need touching up every 4-5 hours or so, which is pretty darn good. They wear away evenly to leave an almost stain like appearance on the lips. I found them neither drying or hydrating but i do tend to wear a lip balm under all lip products.
At first i was a little worried that these might migrate or feather around the lip line but again i was pleasantly surprised. These dry down to more of a semi-matte finish and stay put completely. A totally unique formula and I have been really loving using these over the past month or so.
Overall I'm really impressed with these! The colours are gorgeous, they wear well and are extremely comfortable. What more can you want in a lip product? The only downside is i think the applicator (not pictured, sorry!) could be improved on slightly. I for one am really looking forward to seeing if Too Faced bring out more shades in the coming months, some vampy shades for Autumn/Winter maybe?!
A little pricey here in the UK priced at £19 each but in my opinion worth every penny.
You can find these and other Too Faced products online and in store at Debenhams or at Beauty Bay here.
