I am back with another lip product for you. This time, it’s the much-raved Too Faced Liquified Lipstick. I so badly wanted to get my hands on these babies when they were initially launched in the US in April this year. But as usual, it took me a while to get my hands on these. I even ordered them through an International Beauty site, but my package disappeared somewhere in between.
Get the staying power of a stain, the intense color of a liquid lipstick and the high shine of a gloss in one long-wear formula. Using exclusive technology to keep cauldrons of molten lipsticks liquid and creamy, Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick comfortably coats lips in bursts of intense, high-impact, super rich, saturated color that lasts for hours.
The lip stain comes packaged in a tube packaging with gold detailing. The tube and the outer box it comes packaged in are both colour co-ordinated with the shade of the lipstick. It’s an easy-to-carry product and does not leak. The tube has a sponge type applicator on top through which the product gets squeezed out and applied. The box clearly mentions “no brush needed,” which is a bold claim, let’s find out if it stands true!
My Experience with Too Faced Liquified Long Wear Melted Ruby Lipstick:
Color: The shade “Melted Ruby” is a cool-toned intense deep red – almost blood red in hue. It’s really bold, so you have to be really comfortable wearing reds to be able to carry this off. The finish is shiny satin finish. The glossy shine goes off after 3-4 hours and it settles into a more satin finish.
Texture: The stain is lightweight – gel-like. When applied, it has amazing glossiness and is super lustrous. The glossiness goes off in 3-4 hours leaving behind a satin finish. The consistency is thin and the shade is whopping bright. So applying with the applicator is not totally fool-proof -one, you really have to get a hang of applying it directly with the applicator. Two, because of the consistency, you are likely to go out of the lip line and that is garishly visible due to the boldness of the shade.
Pigmentation: Pigmentation is fantastic, one light swipe deposits 95% color. You actually need very little product for full, even application.The colour is opaque in the first swipe itself and hides all lip pigmentation.
Lasting Power: The product lasted about 7 hours on me – fairly long-lasting. Even after the 7 hours, it still leaves a stain. It will not come off fully on its own, you will need to use a makeup remover for this.
To sum this up for you:
Pros of Too Faced Liquified Long Wear Melted Ruby Lipstick:
- A bold and beautiful color– you need loads of confidence to carry this one!
- Lightweight texture – gel like.
- Excellent pigmentation, opaque in a single swipe.
- Not hydrating or drying.
- It applies smoothly and evenly – no tug or pull!
- Does not settle into the fine lines of the lips.
- Lasts for about 7 hours.
- No feathering or bleeding.
- Iconic packaging.
- Easy to identify colour from the tube itself.
Cons of Too Faced Liquified Long Wear Melted Ruby Lipstick:
- Not easily available in India.
- You need to get a hang of applying it with the applicator, doing outline with a brush would definitely help.
- Transfers – you can control this to an extent by using less product. One tends to go overboard while applying, and that results in easy transference of the product later.
As suggested in the claim itself, it definitely has the wear of a stain, the pigmentation of the lipstick and shine of a gloss. It stands true to its claims. The only reason I deduct points is for ease of application of the shade directly from the applicator. Maybe after 6-7 times, it would be a breeze….but not right now!
