Too Faced Melted Matte are All That

Ever since I had the opportunity to buy and ultimately fall in love with the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks (I have Beso & Fiery), I have constantly been on the hunt for new colors to add to my collection (whether they be from Stila or in this case another brand, Too Faced)! When the Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipsticks launched, I’ll admit, I was a bit skeptical. In my opinion, nothing could compare to the Stila counterparts. Boy was I wrong! These new Too Faced additions were absolutely amazing!

I am always looking for a great neutral, something that I can wear to work everyday and not cause too much a commotion with. And alternatively, after seeing Leyla Milani in a beautiful raspberry toned lipstick, I also wanted to find a shade similar to the one she was wearing. So, the two Melted Mattes I chose were “It’s Happening!” (a bright fuchsia pink) and “Queen B” (a beautiful mauve with a hint of purple).

As expected, I have gravitated more towards the “Queen B” color, as it is very neutral and suitable for every day. However, I DO love both colors. In fact, I kind of wish I could wear “It’s Happening!” a lot more than I currently do. Unlike some reviewers, I did not find this product to be drying in the slightest; in my opinion, the Stila Liquid Lipsticks are more so. I felt that both shades went on very smoothly, were easy to apply, easy to correct should a little mistake occur, and were easy to reapply. Each lipstick had impressive lasting power. I always reapply after eating lunch though, because I feel like the oil in my favorite Greek salad, does cause some of the color to fade. The reapplication process is smooth, and does not feel uncomfortable in the slightest. In comparison, (and I can only offer a comparison to Stila) I typically do not like reapplying my Stila Liquid Lipsticks, especially after eating something with oil – they leave an odd feeling/film on the lips that I cannot seem to get past. The Too Faced Melted Mattes do not leave this feeling.

All in all, I LOVE this product! I wear “Queen B” pretty much every day, and do not find it to severely dry out my lips to the point that I could not wear it the following day. These lipsticks are longwearing, and are in my opinion, some of the best out there. I do recommend that you remove them with an oil-based makeup remover, as this not only provides added moisturization for your lips, but it also allows for a quick and effective removal process (I use this one)!

I would definitely buy these again, and recommend you to give them a try for yourself 🙂

Tell me! What are your favorite liquid lipsticks? Have you tried any from the Too Faced range?
