I do love my Too Faced Melted lipsticks and Too Faced recently expanded their range of existing line of “Melted” lipsticks. These are the Too Faced Melted Matte lipsticks, basically following the trendy liquid lipstick trend. This review will be on the shade “Lady Balls.”
Matte color gets a Melt-over! Our innovative formula glides over lips like a gloss but dries to an ultra-matte opaque finish. Infused with a no-sting lip plumper and 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.
My Experience with Too Faced Lady Balls Melted Matte Liquefied Matte Long Wear Lipstick:
Packaging: I do love the packaging with the unique triangular tube which shows the color inside. This does make for easy access of the color you want.
Texture: Like most people, I have my own set of makeup favorites. My favorite liquid lipstick formula is by Kat Von D. Though I am not impressed with this Too Face formula that much that it would knock out my favorite KVD out and would take its place, but it does rank pretty good in my books.
The formula and consistency of this liquid lipstick is thinner, more watery than the Kat Von D’s mousse-y formula. The application is easy and precise with the help of the standard doe-foot applicator. The thin formula does feel like second skin and clings on the lips. It feels extremely lightweight on the lips and you might even forget that you are wearing anything on the lips at all.
Pigmentation: I love the fact that the pigmentation is fully opaque in one swipe. I didn’t have to layer this shade of liquid lipstick at all which is actually a good thing as more layers can potentially feel more drying.
Shade: The shade “Lady Balls” is an absolutely daring true red. A shade like this is an absolute classic. It will suit most skin tones. If you are a fan of that “Marilyn Monroe look,” this shade is all you can want. This lipstick dries down completely matte.
Feel and look on lips: This formula didn’t feel too drying but it wasn’t hydrating either. It didn’t seem to suck out moisture from my lips and feel comfortable throughout the wear. It did accentuate the fine lines on my lips slightly but nothing too bad. This might be a con for those who have a lot of wrinkles or texture on their lips. Since I am very careful about how I prep my lips before using a liquid lipstick, with proper exfoliation and lip balm, I didn’t have any issue with this clinging on to any dry patches.
Staying Power: This liquid lipstick is mostly transfer proof. It doesn’t come off on cups or when you get kissed. Staying power is pretty good at 7-8 hours which is basically the whole day for me. It fares well through light snacks and drinks, but after a full meal, particularly an oily meal, it can fade away from the inside of the lips or smear if the oil breaks it down.
At the end of the day, I do need an oil-based remover to take it completely off and it does leave a stain behind.
Overall, I am quite pleased with this product, but if I still had to choose, I would prefer Kat Von D liquid lipsticks mostly because they are of the same price range and I like their formula better. But it does come down to one’s preference for a particular formula or brand. I like this enough to recommend it.
