Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick Review & Swatches

Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick is the newest lip product from Too Faced that has been receiving a lot of good reviews everywhere. The concept of liquid lipsticks that pack a big punch of color is not entirely new, but coming from a brand that I am a big fan of, I had to at least give it a try! Do I think it's a product worthy of all the hype? Well, here's my thought.

They come in 6 stunning shades but I only purchased 4 that I think I'd have more chance to wear. The colors that I have are:

  1. Melted Peony – soft nude pink
  2. Melted Coral – neon coral
  3. Melted Violet – bright pinkish purple
  4. Melted Fuchsia – bright fuchsia

All of them have a lovely, soft sweet candy scent!

Let's talk about the packaging first! My favorite topic! :) The squeeze tube of these Melted lipsticks is to-die-for! So very extremely adorable, with the color of the tube coordinating with the actual product inside and those pale gold caps! I just love it! Though the more interesting thing is the applicator where the slanted tip is covered with some type of a spongy material. I can't say I am completely a fan of it, I mean, you can't completely clean the tip and it makes me wonder what it would look like over a long period of time. It glides on smoothly across the lips with enough precision but if I want a really defined look, I will reach for a lip brush for a finishing touch.

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick claims to have “the shine of a gloss, lasting power of a stain, and pigment-packed color of a liquid lipstick“.

“The shine of a gloss”
Yes and no. When you first put it on, there's a noticeable glossy sheen, but I wouldn't go so far as comparing it to a real glossy sheen of a true lip gloss. It's more of a subtle version — very, very subtle. The sheen disappears quickly, too, within an hour or so on me. At least it's not thick and sticky like a lip gloss! :)

“The lasting power of a stain”
Yes and no. These do stain, but their staining power is nothing comparable to the “real” stains such as YSL Glossy Stain or Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain. Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick only stains “softly” and if you have naturally pigmented lips like I do, you may not even notice the staining effect. In fact, Melted Peony barely stains at all compared to the other three shades which stain a bit better.

“The pigment-packed color of a liquid lipstick”
Yes and no. All of the shades that I have are indeed saturated with bold and rich pigments, no doubt about it. A tiny dot is more than enough to cover the entire lips with the vibrant color. It is completely opaque in 2 passes and I couldn't be more impressed with the color payoff. However, they fade just as fast, too.

On my prepped lips, the color stays on for a good few hours and then fades significantly as the day progresses. These do not even last through a meal on me. At first I thought it was the lip balm that may have caused the lipstick to “slide off“, so I tried it without the balm underneath, hoping that the pigment would grab on to my lips better. Did not improve a thing. My last resort was to try applying it over a lip liner, and thankfully, that worked! So, do give it a try if you are experiencing the longevity issue.

Another thing worth noting is, they do take a while to set. The formula leaves a velvety finish that transfers easily within the first couple of hours before setting to a complete matte later on.

Are they comfortable to wear? To a certain extent. They are not hydrating lip products by any means but they are not the most drying, either. Honestly, I'm really not crazy about the way they make my lips look at the end of the day — streaky and dry. Definitely keep a lip balm/gloss handy to rehydrate! :)

One last thing is, you have to prep your lips really well (as in scrub those dead skin cells away!), or it will cling to dry spots and later form that dreaded white line between lips (I hope you know what I'm talking about!).

Of all the 4 shades that I have, Melted Fuchsia and Melted Violet have the best consistency, offering a smooth glide and even application. They also leave the strongest staining effect. Melted Peony and Melted Coral are my least favorite since they tend to settle into lip lines and leave a streaky finish if not applied well.

All in all, Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick is a good product, it is just a little high maintenance. Your lips have to be in good condition and you have to be extra careful in the first few hours to prevent transferring. I'd reserve them just for special occasions where I know I won't be eating/drinking too much and I would always line my lips first and keep a lip balm close by. :)

  • Ok holy shit I have to say these are AMAZING!!!! Melted Fuschia and Melted Peony looks really good on you. I would try these but I hate anything that is high maintenance – thus I rarely wear lipsticks because I know they are gonna probably drop off when I eat :(

  • Oh gosh. I really love these on you. I might pass on them because of the formula issues but they look sooo pretty.

    They remind me of Lip Tars, no? I have a bunch of Lip Tar and I really like them but they are definitely not easy to use by any means & they transfer, take forever to set, and when they come off they leave a stain that is.. strange. Like it actually looks like my lip product just faded away, you can tell.

    • I love it on me, too! But only for the first few hours when everything is still intact! Haha!

      I remember trying the OCC Lip Tars when they first hit my local Sephora store. I also remember returning them not long after lol! I wasn’t overly impressed with the formula. Just like you said, they take forever to set and leave a weird sort of stain. And you have to use a lip brush!!!

  • I love Melted Violet (but of course :-P) and I agree that the purple and the fuchsia are a bit nicer than the peony and the coral – the last two have that opaque milkiness that doesn’t quite agree with me.

    Can I just say, that close up of the product coming out of the brush in the fuchsia section is amazing! Looks kind of like the science experiments we do with kids :-D So fun :-)

    • Melted Violet is my favorite, too!! :D I have come to a conclusion that anything with a creamy/milky consistency in a liquid form just does not do well on my lips! I can never get it to work! :(

      And the close-up of Fuchsia, I have to say, even I, am amazed how well it turned out! The other 3 shades didn’t “bleed” out as photogenically as the Fuchsia! LOL!

  • Hey Jaa, thanks so much for the review! I’ve heard mostly raves about these, so I’m glad there is a different opinion! I might and might not try one. I do really like Melted Fuchsia (surprise surprise, for once I’m not making a beeline to the coral), but it seems like the formula is far from perfection. Not sure I’ll go for dry and streaky at the end of the day!

    • I feel very unfortunate that these didn’t work out great for me, Sunny! I don’t know how people can get them to work, haha.

      And that’s a total surprise that you like the Fuchsia better than Coral! ;)

  • Yeeeeowza, these look amazing! I feel like snapping my fingers and going mmmmmmhmmm because these colors are just so fierce, lol. Loved the close-up shot of the brushes by the way, really artistic :-)

    • Thank you, Melissa! <3 I am crazy obsessed with macro shots, lol!

      I think Fierce is actually THE perfect term to describe these colors! :D

  • First off, once again you’re blowing my mind with those close up shots, especially the Fuchsia. While I thought I’d be liking these more, hearing you give a more in depth review about how hard they are to wear is making me think twice about investing. I think I’ll save my $$$ for my UD lemmings.

    • Oh thank you, Jacqueline! :)

      I don’t enjoy writing negative reviews but sometimes it’s inevitable. At least these are very photogenic!! :D

  • Fantastic post!! I LOVE the packaging of these and Too Faced in general, but I know it would take me years to use one up because the colors are so vibrant and I’m just more into “easy” colors/formulas. For now I’ll stick with Too Faced’s La Creme Lipsticks as my go-to from the brand. Honey Bear made it into my “frequent use” bin upon the first swipe! <3

    • Same here! LOVE the packaging but not so much for the formula. :( I wish it didn’t take so much effort to use haha. Too Faced La Crème is soo creamy! :)
