I was moseying through my local Sephora about a week ago when I stumbled upon their Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick display and was instantly enamored by all the gorgeous colors. What can I say? I’m an easy sell when it comes to makeup. I’d seen a few people raving about them online recently so I decided to just pick one up in Melted Ruby and see for myself how they are. I was not disappointed!
Now, I rarely trust a “long wear” lipstick. Many products make the claim and then turn out to be one huge disappointment, usually either by rubbing off within the hour or being so damn drying that your lips just look like little shriveled up prunes which is usually terribly uncomfortable and unattractive.
I decided to put this product to the test and the first time I wore it I had a hearty lunch of lamb curry and a big ole bottle of water. No straw! I’m so daring. I was sure that when I checked on my lipstick after lunch that it would all be gone but I was so wrong. It looked perfect! I even took a nap a couple of hours later and when I woke up, it was still going strong.
So let’s get down to the nitty gritty. I found the Too Faced Melted lipsticks to be long lasting, just like they claim. They probably aren’t going to make it all day long but I got a solid 6 hours or so out of them, even through eating, drinking and a nap. Unlike many long wearing lipsticks, these are not particularly drying. They certainly aren’t creamy (at least not for long) but they are comfortable. They go on glossy but dry to almost a matte finish over time. The pigmentation is amazing and the slanted tip applicator makes application easy breezy. I can definitely see more shades of this in my future.
