The Melted Lipstick That Really Is A Melt


I feel like this is my first negative review since I started blogging, (happy 4 month birthday to my internet baby by the way!)

You'll know I love the brand Too Faced if you've read my blog from birth, I can't say much bad about anything but, unfortunately this Melted Lipstick (£19.00,) let the team down. Boo.
The idea of this product is 'melted lipstick in a tube', it appears and applies like a gloss, but gives a lipstick effect. I have the (mini) shade of Melted Peony, which is a solid pink. I'd just like to point out I'm not a fan of a pink lip on myself, I got this miniature Melted after spending £40.00 at a Too Faced counter. The shade range is pretty good, but not amazing, maybe if I had a shade I actually liked I wouldn't dislike the product so much.


Although, the pigmentation is amazing i'll give it that, one swipe of pink is bright enough.
The applicator is a little strange, it's definitely leaning towards the kind you'd find on a lipgloss, basically it's a tiny sponge. A tiny sponge that gets very messy. The product squeezes out of a hole right in the middle of the sponge and you just squeeze the tube until you're happy with how much is on your lips. I don't think the sponge is shaped very well for top lip application, I think it's also a little un-hygienic and basically it just ends up looking very scruffy.


It gives a satin finish like a MAC lipstick would when first applied, but after about an hour that completely goes away and you're left with a very light stain. I hate lip stains. My lips looked like they had a light pink tint on them after an hour, after two hours? Nothing left.
Not worth the money, the image on the box is very mis-leading and it's a shame because I adore the packaging and the brand.
Too Faced just released "Melted Metals" with the same idea, I'm yet to try one, but after this I don't think I will.

  2. It's a shame you didn't like it. I don't know how I'd a handle a sponge applicator as I'm useless with messy lip products. I think I'll stick to lipsticks!

  3. Ah shame they're not as good! The sponge puts me off these as I have little lips so it would be everywhere! Do like the colour of it though x
