Despite the fact that this lip color has nearly the longest name EVER, I am giving you my full thoughts on the newly released Too Faced Melted Matte-Tallic Liquified Metallic Matte Lipsticks. Available in 13 shades from nudes to bolds, plus a holographic ‘transformer’ shade, there’s definitely something for everyone. But are these matte liquid lipsticks guilty of any typical liquid lipstick fails (cracky lips, dryness, flaking, etc.)? I’m getting into all the details in this Too Faced Melted Matte-Tallic Liquified Lipstick Review…
First off, I want to thank the PR team at Too Faced for being so awesome and sending me all of the melted matte-tallic lipstick shades complimentary for testing purposes.
I am not obligated to review them or talk about them at all, but I have a few friends that really enjoy their original Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick formula, so I figured it’d be helpful to know how these matte metallic ones fare.
Everyone wants to see the swatches – I get it. So let’s get that out-of-the-way first:
To cover the basic facts, the Too Faced Melted Matte-Tallic Liquified Metallic Matte Lipsticks come in 13 shades from nudes to bolds. You’ve got everything from the palest of peaches to the brightest of blues.
They retails for $21/each at Sephora.
The holographic transformer shade is something really unique and definitely for those who LOVE a cool lip color.
Transformer will give a lilac-hued holographic shift to any of the colors but does a nice job at just staying on top of the lipstick and not mixing together.
It is a bit chunky and more drying than the lipsticks worn alone, but again, if you’re an edgy lip color lover, you won’t mind it much and won’t be fussing with your lips as often as others.
As for the texture and formula, I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised.
Metallic liquid lipsticks usually give me a bad 1970s grandma vibe, but the metallic finish on these lipsticks is more subdued and sophisticated.
Too Faced is calling it a “brushed metal effect,” and I think that’s such a fair explanation to how these look and feel on the lips.
It is way more flattering than any other metallic liquid lipstick I’ve tried thus far and has a more velvety-feel. For reference, I am wearing the formula in this YouTube video:
When metallic/frosted shades are done well, they can give the lips a fuller effect and these do just that.
They dry down to a totally matte finish and do not kiss off/transfer, but yet my lips don’t feel dry or cracky… and I’m very sensitive to drying liquid lipsticks.
The applicator is very plush and makes it super easy to apply all the way to the lip line in smooth strokes. I find I rarely have to dip back into the tube for more product and I can cover my entire top and bottom lip with one coating for full pigment.
The one con I notice ( and this happens with MOST darker liquid lipsticks from any brand ) is that as they wear off, you *will* get that tell-tale liquid lipstick ring on the outer line of your lips that requires immediate touching up.
I give these two thumbs up if you’re on the market for a slightly unique, comfortable metallic liquid lipstick.
My personal favorites ( as if this is going to come as any surprise ) are mixing Pillow Talk with Our Lips Are Sealed (for a perfect peachy nude), Faking It (neutral beige nude), You Better Work (neutral mauve nude), and I Wanna Rock With You (as a quintessential fall burgundy).
…I also can’t wait to try the Bitch, I’m Too Faced crimson shade for the holidays. It seems so festive!
Are these calling your name? Definitely check them out online or in Sephora stores next time you’re shopping. They’re a fun addition to your makeup collection if you haven’t tried the metallic trend yet, or have been disappointed in other formulas.
