Too Faced Melted Matte in Candy Cane

Too Faced never ceases to amaze me with their oh-so adorable, swoon worthy releases and their latest limited edition exclusive shade, Candy Cane in their Melted Matte formula is perfect for the upcoming season of festivities that will soon be upon us. It’s an incredibly beautiful holiday red that smells like peppermint mocha! If you are looking for a bold red lip for the holiday season, this stunning shade of red will not disappoint. 

Retailing at $21, this Too Faced holiday exclusive is dressed up in candy cane stripes of pink and red with accents of gold.  Official Details according to Too Faced:

“Our innovative formula glides over lips like a gloss but dries to an ultra-matte opaque finish. Infused with a no-sting plumping filler, Melted Matte ensures color always looks rich, full, and kissable – never dry, shriveled or cracked. Doe-foot applicator comfortably coats lips in bursts of intense, saturated matte color that lasts for hours. ” –Too Faced


The formula feels very velvety and one swipe is deeply pigmented with a beautifully opaque finish that is never drying. It provides hours of comfortable wear and on me it lasted a good 6 hours with slight fading in the center from eating and drinking. I own five other shades of the Melted Mattes lipsticks; you can find my full review and swatches here. I must say that this one feels slightly more creamy in texture than the original formula. The doe foot applicator included ensures a smooth application and I find it just the right length for maximum precision and control.
