I was very patient, waiting for the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks to start popping up in stores. I wanted to check out testers and decide for myself: Do I really need these? And which colors are must-haves for me?!

My experience was a mixed bag. But I’ll get to that in a minute.

These lipsticks are $21 a pop, so I swatched the six new lippies on the back of my hand at Sephora before deciding on two – Melted Violet and Melted Coral. I really wanted them all, but I’m really trying to curb my beauty spending!

Here’s swatches on my hand in sun and natural light – Coral on the left, Violet on the right:

The applicator is described as a precision-tip applicator, and how to describe it is escaping me but it feels fuzzy on my lips in a pleasant way:

On to lip swatches! First up, Melted Coral:

Melted Coral is a great shade, on trend, and felt great on. The only problem was that it wasn’t a precise application for me. So I ended up getting lipstick on the outside of my lip line on top of my lips and the color is potent so it didn’t necessarily remove easily, it faded as I wiped. I felt a little silly like my lipstick had not so much feathered but traveled/smudged on me. I also didn’t like how it wore off, the stain that was left behind as the lipstick wore through the day was just not an attractive look for me personally, with my skin tone.

You or another beauty addict you love might have a totally different, positive experience with this lippie than I did, but I’ve been afraid to use it again. I really ought to!

Now, Melted Violet was a totally different experience.

If ever there was a perfect purple lippie for me, THIS IS IT.

Melted Violet was a total dream. I didn’t have issues in application, it didn’t fade in an unattractive way, and it lasted for hours. I love this lippie so much I’m afraid to use it because I might run out!!! This one came to Las Vegas with me!

Overall, I’ve had a split experience with the Melted line, but I’m not afraid to try more. And it looks like there are FOUR NEW SHADES on the Sephora website and I have to have them. *sigh* It’s tough being a lippie lover, guys!

What do you think of the Melted Lipsticks? Have you tried them yet? Have your eye on any of the shades?! I’d love to hear your thoughts!
