Too Faced Cosmetics is on a roll this year with a string of popular releases for Spring and Summer. First, they launched their highly covetable Peach Palette, (reviewed here) and most recently, their line of Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipsticks ($21) . There are a total of 16 shades available, ranging from soft nudes to bright orchids. At the time of this post, all shades are currently sold out online and will imminently be restocked soon given its popularity. I picked up a total of three shades during its initial launch and I have since purchased a couple more. Today I will be sharing product photos, swatches and my overall review of the shades Child Star, It's Happening, and Lady Balls. Kindly scroll below for details.

What it is: A lightweight, long-wearing liquefied matte lipstick with a creamy and matte, color-rich formula.
What it does:
Matte color gets a makeover. Too Faced’s innovative formula glides onto lips like a gloss but dries to an ultra-matte, opaque finish. Melted Matte ensures that your lip color always looks rich, full, and kissable—and is never dry, shriveled, or cracked. The doe-foot applicator comfortably coats lips in bursts of intense, vivid matte color that lasts for hours. It’s infused with Vollulip for a no-sting plumping and smoothing effect and antioxidant-rich avocado oil and vitamin E to moisturize, while hyaluronic filling spheres smooth the look of lip lines. It comfortably coats lips with a wash of intense, high-impact, super-saturated color that lasts for hours.
Child Star-Matte Soft Nude
Lady Balls-Matte True Red
It's Happening-Matte Bright Magenta
The liquid lipsticks come packaged in a clear glass tube with the raised words "Melted Matte" in gold embossing. It contains a sponge tip applicator that is neither too long or short and helps me to apply each color with precision. Intensely and beautifully pigmented, each color applied smoothly on my lips and settled down to a matte finish within a minute. The formula is thin, yet smooth. I would say that the formula is most similar to Colourpop's formula though not as watery, thin, or drying. The consistency for all three were the same and the colors applied evenly with no streaking. Once they dried down, it wore quite comfortably. It did not settle into fine lines, nor did I experience any cracking, however they did feel moderately drying as most liquid lipsticks do. I would recommend proper exfoliation for optimum performance. On me, I achieved about 6 hours of wear before slight fading in the center of my lips. What I like about the formula is that it settles completely matte and the overall pigmentation and color saturation are impressive. Bottom line, I would recommend you try one of Too Faced's Melted Matte liquid lipsticks especially if you are a fan of liquid lipstick formulas. I think you will come to like these. Swatches to follow below.

I have since added two more colors to my collection-Sell Out and Unicorn.
Currently, they are sold exclusively at Sephora, both online and in stores. At the time of this post, all Melted Matte lipsticks are currently sold out online, though you may be able to find select colors at your local Sephora retail locations. The good news is that they are permanent and you can try one out before committing to purchasing more from the line.
