During my vacation in Greece I bought a Melted Matte liquid lipstick by Too Faced at a Sephora. I actually wasn’t planning on buying one, as I wanted to buy the Born This Way foundation and Hangover Primer (again), but both were sold out…. Because I really wanted to buy a product by Too Faced as I can’t buy products of the brand in the Netherlands. So, I chose the famous Melted Matte and here are my thoughts on it!
Furthermore, the scent of the lippie is a bit chemical, but luckily the scent is not strong. So it doesn’t bother me at all.
The formula is a bit drying, which isn’t uncommon for a matte liquid lipstick. Therefore, I like to moisturize my before I apply the product and if I still get dry lips when wearing it I like to lightly apply some lip balm on top. I personally don’t think it is necessary to apply the Melted Matte again most of the time. The product is just that long wearing! However, if you eat very greasy food it does come off more quickly, pretty logical but yeah just so you know. I would personally take the product with me to school or work so I can do a touch up, just to be sure.
Furthermore, there is no need for a liner before applying the liquid lipstick as it doesn’t bleed into the fine lines along the lips and the formula is nicely pigmented! The product can transfer a bit though, so it is not kiss proof.
Then Too Faced also promises that this liquid lipstick has a plumping effect that doesn’t sting the lips. I believe that it does plump my lips very lightly, but it is almost unnoticeable. So, I think it can be called a natural plump. Also I cannot feel any type of sting when I’m wearing this lippie. Furthemore, I didn’t know that this product had a plumping feature when I bought it, however I don’t find it a problem. If you want a serious plumping formula this is the liquid lipstick for you.
