The first shade I got to try from the Too Faced Melted Liquified Lipstick range was Melted Sugar, described as a ‘nude sand’. The light nude shade didn’t excite me as I prefer brighter and bolder shades, but the formula and wear was off the park. WOAHHH!!!! 😀
When I went to test out the other 17 shades at Sephora, I fell in LOVE with the range.
Described by Too Faced as having ‘the shine of a gloss, lasting power of a stain, and pigment-packed color of a liquid lipstick’, they are basically soft melted lipsticks, like what you’d get if you melted down a lipstick to depot it.
Packaging & Application
The simple squeeze tube packaging with a gold screw cap is an incredible time saver because the color of the tube is a pretty accurate indication of the exact shade. I like squeeze tubes because I feel like I can get the most out of the product, leaving less to waste.
I was initially concerned if the product will come squirting out like a jet spray, but you just have to gently squeeze the tube and the color will dispense on the velvet tip applicator in a controlled and consistent manner.
For really crisp lines I use a lip brush, but it is possible to apply directly from the tube. Sometimes when I want it to look less intense, I’ll diffuse the color by dabbing it with my finger.
Shade Review & Swatches
Here are my 8 favorite shades; there are a total of 18 shades available at Sephora Singapore.
Too Faced Melted Liquified – Melted Berry
Berry is a burgundy wine with cool, blue undertones. This is a great starter color if you’re interested to go into berry shades. I like that it’s not too dark or scary.
Too Faced Melted Liquified – Melted Ruby
Ruby is described as a ‘blood red’. When I smear it on tissue, it really looks like blood from a nosebleed haha. It has cool undertones and feels slightly more watery and appears slightly more glossy than the rest. Love this shade.
Too Faced Melted Liquified – Melted Candy
Candy is a bright fuschia candy pink with very slight cool undertones. The tube colors of Candy and Jelly Donut look almost similar but they’re really quite different. Candy is brighter and a warmer pink than Jelly Donut. Candy feels… more cheery and happy? 😆
Too Faced Melted Liquified – Melted Jelly Donut
Jelly Donut is my favorite shade of the lot! It is a bold, bright fuchsia with cool undertones. It looks sophisticated and makes me feel more confident whenever I wear it. It has a creamy finish. I prefer to use a lip brush for Jelly Donut.
Too Faced Melted Liquified – Melted Melon
Melon is described as a ‘guava’. Erm, I think guavas lean more pink? Melon actually appears more coral-orange in real life. If anything, it looks like a shade Cheon-Song Yi might wear. Lol. Melon has a creamy finish like Jelly Donut.
Too Faced Melted Liquified – Melted Strawberry
Strawberry is described as a ‘blood orange’. It’s a medium red that appears warm on my lips. Even though it’s a red, it applies very smoothly and easily. I don’t have to use a lip brush for this.
Too Faced Melted Liquified – Melted Sugar
Sugar is a nude sand which I don’t wear at all hahaha. But the formula and wear catapulted me into this obsession with the Too Faced Melted Liquified Lipsticks.
Too Faced Melted Liquified Metallic – Tu-Tu
Tu-Tu is from the new Too Faced Metallic Metal Liquified Lipstick range. These have a metallic sheen to them, and are more pearly and glossy. I’m not a fan of this metallic range, but let me wear this a few more times and update again.
Color & Wear
Most of the shades apply creamy, are smooth and opaque. The application the colors is smooth, and each shade delivers a consistent payoff. They provide full-coverage color, and all of them were incredibly vibrant and intense.
They do not stay wet and glossy for too long, and have a satin finish that dries down into a matte finish but does not completely set so it will transfer. They are not kiss-proof or drink-proof. This bothers some people, but it’s not a big issue for me considering all other merits. I only have to touch up after a meal, and consider this frequency to be pretty good already. They are neither super hydrating nor drying, are lightweight and feel comfortable on the lips.
Despite the intense color payoff, they don’t create a mess on my teeth. Yay! The reds do bleed/feather at the end of the day, but just a little. It’s not that obvious either, unless you’re 5 inches from my face.
I feel that the Too Faced Melted Liquified Lipsticks are for people who like obvious colors on their lips, definitely not for those who prefer the MLBB (My Lips But Better) look.
Too Faced Melted Liquified Lipsticks are available at Singapore Sephora stores and retail at SGD 30.00 each.
