Makeup Monday- Speed Review: Too Faced Melted Lipsticks

Too Faced is quickly becoming one of my favourite brands- I'm yet to try something from them that I don't like, with their eyeshadow palettes and eyeliners amongst my must-haves. Whilst I'd heard fellow beauty bloggers raving about the brand's Melted Lipsticks, up to now, I hadn't tried them.

I was recently sent a couple of shades- Melted Berry, an existing shade and Melted Fig, which is one of the latest additions to the range, taking the selection of colours to 18.
As the name suggests, Melted Berry is a true berry shade which would work particularly well for Autumn. Melted Fig is a dusty mauve, pulling quite purple rather than having obvious brown tones.

The packaging is sleek yet in keeping with the fun branding of Too Faced. I liked that both the outer box and the tube reflected the colour of the lipstick inside. The sponge tip allowed for an easy, precision application. Some may find the sponge tipped applicator unhygienic but as I only intend to keep the Melted Lipsticks for personal use, it didn't bother me.

My first thought on trying Too Faced Melted Lipsticks was how impressed I was at the high impact, rich pigmentation. They're fully opaque on the lips in just one coat. For this reason, a little goes a long way and it's hard to see how you'd use up an entire tube.

The lipsticks feel smooth and comfortable both during application and on the lips. I noticed no discernable scent or flavour.

Unfortunately, Melted Lipsticks are by no means transfer proof- I noticed colour on glasses after drinking and needed to watch out for transfer onto my teeth. Having said this, Too Faced make no claims that they're transfer resistant. When I realised that they weren't transfer resistant, I was concerned that they wouldn't live up to the long-wearing name but I wasn't disappointed.

I found that I was able to wear Too Faced Melted Lipstick for approximately four hours (including eating and drinking) before needing to re-apply. The colour wore off evenly, leaving a soft stain on the lips. They're not as long-wearing as Rimmel Provocalips but I was impressed nonetheless.

At £19 each, Too Faced Melted Lipsticks aren't cheap although they are fairly priced in comparison with similar branded products. I enjoyed trying them and would be tempted to repurchase. I'd especially like to see these available in a mini size, which would enable me to justify picking up a variety of shades.
