Hello everyone! ‘tis the season of shopping and that’s what I have been doing! I don’t remember the last time I went lipstick shopping, I think it was last year. I have been super well behaved in the lipstick hoarding department lately so this month decided it was time I rewarded myself with a few new lippies.
I’ve always wanted to try the too faced melted lipsticks which have been out for a while, I feel that 2016 has been the year of liquid matte lipsticks, much to my horror because I have dry lips, so I decided to pick the melted lippies rather than the matte lipsticks from too faced because I much prefer my lipsticks to be hydrating.
I came across a gift pack called Merry Kissmass on Sephora which included three of the melted lipsticks and decided that this was a great way to test these shades out.
The box came with three shades Fig, Chihuahua, and Chocolate honey. The pack in which these came in smelled so good! It took me a while to get that the gorgeous scent was coming from the box, ah I wish there is a perfume out there that smells like this, and I must have it :’)
All three of the lipsticks smell amazing, Fig and Chihuahua smell like yummy candy whilst chocolate honey smells like chocolate ice cream. I love how Too Faced makes their products such nicely scented, like their Peach Palette and their chocolate bronzers! They do it like no other.
I’m not crazy about the formula of these, I do like them a lot more than other matte lipsticks I have but it’s just something about how matte lips feel when they dry, I just don’t get the hang of it. It makes me want to lick my lipstick off and that is probably why they don’t last too long on my lips.
But if I were to choose between a liquid matte lipstick or these, I would choose these any day. All three colors are amazing, I absolutely love chocolate honey, it’s a muted brown which looks good in the day and night time.
Fig is a mauvy pink and looks gorgeous on the lips, I personally feel that it has the longest wearing time out of the three.
Chihuahua is a nude pink and has been my go-to lip color for the past week, I wear it to work daily and love how it looks on me, I feel pink shades are something that I try to steer clear of because I feel they make me look slightly odd, but I love this shade of pink, I think it looks quite nice on me, if I do say so myself.
Overall I love all three shades, if you are a matte lip fan you will love these, if not you will learn to adjust because they aren’t as uncomfortable. However longevity isn’t all that great, especially if you like to lick your lips!
This is how the shades look on me :
