TooFaced Melted Lippies (with lip swatches)

Too Faced melted lipsticks are a product I have lusted after for the longest time. They're beautifully packaged (just go and stalk them on instagram, you'll fall in love), get great reviews, and have some gorgeous colours in the range - what's not to love? The only thing holding me back was the price, as £19 is a heck of a lot to pay for a lip product, but I've bitten the bullet and voila! A swatch and review post of the two shades I picked up.
The liquid lipstick range began with a set of standard colours in the collection, which widened to metallic shades, and then most recently, a collection of brown shades, the 'Chocolate' variety. I knew when I did my research that I had to try one of these shades, since brown nudes are what I'm all about (MAC Spirit ya feel me.) In the end after much debate, I went for Chocolate Honey, a lovely deep brown nude which is darker than a typical nude nude, but not deep enough to be considered a bold lip. The lighter shade called Chocolate 'Milkshake' was also right up my alley, but since I was paying a heck of a lot I decided to go for the more noticeable lip colour.
Let me start off by saying that this product literally smells like a bowl of chocolate ice cream. It's infused with cocoa powder to give that delightful scent, and even though I guess it isn't intended, it tastes pretty darn good as well. The product applies like a gloss and finishes semi-matte, which is a brilliant medium for me since I find mattes to be drying, and I'm not crazy about the stickiness of glosses. I've only worn this once but it lasted through the day with only a small touch up after a meal, and looks super chic and wearable. The velvet applicator makes the product extremely easy to apply, and I actually found that it went on much easier than a typical lipstick bullet applicator.
I also picked up one from the classic liquid lipstick range in the shade 'Ruby', which was advertised (and looked like on the packaging) a deep red shade. I'm definitely a fan of red tones that are more on the berry side of things - bright, orangey reds wash me out and aren't, I find, the most flattering for teeth whiteness. This colour wasn't anything like I expected; it definitely isn't the deep red that I imagined it would be, but it also isn't on the other, orangey end of the spectrum either. This is more of a pink red, but it actually looks different to any shade I've seen in a lip product before. It's more bold than I usually go, but I love it, and can't wait to wear it on a night out or to a party, as its the perfect party lip. Another thing I'd like to credit this product with, is that for a red lip, it was incredibly easy to apply. No need for liners here, which is amazing.
As you can see in the photos, these are lovely shades, and although my chocolate shade will probably get more use, I'm glad to have Ruby also in my collection. I'm over the moon to own these beauties, and I'm already eyeing up another few shades (Sugar, Chihuahua and Frozen Hot Chocolate.) 
Have you ever tried these products, and if so, what colours do you have?
Thanks for reading!
Side note: I hate to be a negative blogger, but I wanted to quickly mention that the Make Up Revolution 'Lip Lavas', which are supposed to be a really good dupe for this product, aren't a patch on the real thing. I'm all for saving a bit of $$$, but there really is no comparison here, the staying power, shade range, and formula of the dupe just don't match up in my eyes. 



  1. These sound lovely! I've been eyeing up Chocolate honey for ages. I think I'm gonna buy it :) xx

  3. I just picked up one of the metallic shades the other week - metallic peony I think it's called and I absolutely love it. I never thought I'd go for a lip product like it but I'm so glad I did. I'm definitely tempted by the chocolate shades too. Chocolate Honey looks amazing on you. I just discovered your blog btw. Prepare for a commenting spree haha.
