Too Faced Melted Matte-Tallic lipstick Collection | review

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

This is post was interesting to both write and photograph because I am not a beauty blogger or obsessed with makeup. But I do love lipsticks and reviewing, so I deiced to give this type of post a try!

Today I will be reviewing all 14 lipsticks in the Too Faced Melted Matte-tallic lipstick collection which I've had for a while, as I finally had the opportunity to write this post.

Last December, a Youtuber/IG influencer was hosting '12 days of Christmas' giveaways and so I entered her daily giveaways that were mostly PR products that she had received from makeup/lifestyle companies and had never used. One day I got a message from her that I had won a Too Faced PR package of their new lipstick collection!

A week later I received my package, two days before Christmas actually, and I opened it and was surprised at what I saw. Though I knew what I was getting, seeing the pink box with 14 liquid lipsticks inside was still astonishing to see. After opening it, I wrapped it up and placed it under my Christmas tree so I could open it on Christmas day. In a way, it was a Christmas gift that I never thought I would get (more down below).
Also, this was my first time doing swatches and so bear with me as I wasn't a hundred percent sure how to pose or take pics. I used coconut oil to remove it, and it removed the lipstick really well and left my skin super soft afterward.This post was meant to be written back in February but due to time constraints, school and other posts, I delayed it until now.


Too Faced Melted Matte-Tallic

To start, I do not have a lot of money and though I had heard about Too Faced before I had never had the opportunity to try out any of their products. Also, I've never worn liquid lipstick before which made it a learning challenge as I had no idea how to apply them. And though now I feel like an 'expert' sometimes my lips don't come out as they are supposed to, it doesn't really matter since I'm the only one (I hope) who'll notice the mistakes.

The point of the collection (if you didn't already guess) is that the formula looks like melted metals with a subtle shine and the finish is matte. There are various colors, and finishes and I will expand on that later on.

I love that that lipsticks came in a super cute, pink, faux-metallic box since it was a PR box. It has the Too-Faced logo on all the sides, overall I find it aesthetically pleasing and is a great storage box. All the lipsticks have been kept there as it is very convenient and it does save some space.

the lipsticks

The formula is not sparkly or glimmery, as in pure melted metal, but it does have a very subtle shine/shimmer, which I really enjoyed. The is more noticeable in some certain lighting and it looks really nice and muted but eye-catching.

Like I mentioned before, I've never used liquid lipsticks before so this was a learning curve, but after a couple of tries (and lots of remover) I was finally able to apply it perfectly.  It is very easy to apply, it goes on smoothly, it's non-drying and I loved how long-lasting it is. Though it does say its 'liquified metallic' it dries of matte which was another thing I loved since I'm not a big fan of shiny/glossy lipsticks. It is also not sheer, meaning that one coat can be enough.
The collection came with an assortment of colors including a deep blue, a strong magenta, some neutrals, and pinks. With such a full range it's super easy and convenient to find a shade to go with any outfit. I decided to swatch all the colors even though I don't wear all of them (the deep bold ones). I'm waiting for the day I'll be brave enough to pull off a bold look.

Though all the shades are really nice there are a couple that I didn't love since they made me look too pale or gave me a childish look. The favorite shade that I use is 'Give It to Me'. I wear it almost every other day as it is a nice burnt gold/copper color and it is not too dramatic, plus it makes my teeth look whiter.

The neutrals all kind of look similar but do look different went applied to the lips. The pinks are quite pigmented and even after removing it will leave a pinkish stain. They are pigmented and the shimmer is more noticeable.

Here are the swatches under the flash to see both the shimmer of it and see how it looks like in different lighting.

the 'transformer'

Included in the collection is a 'Liquified Metallic lipstick transformer'. Essentially it is an opalescent lipstick with small glitter particles in it. It is supposed to be added on top of the lipstick and make it shiny and very liquidy looking, or it can be used by itself. 


To be honest, I didn't love this as I found it way too shiny and glittery for my taste, so what I do is I take the applicator and apply 4 dots to my upper lip and three to my bottom one. I then smooth it down and spread it along my lips to give it a discreet glittery shine while not overtaking the lipstick below. The package is super cute, purple-ish and really eye-catching.

Final Thoughts 

These lipsticks are lovely and so so easy to wear. They do last a long while, at the end of the day it has a discreet colour and looks kind of like the Korean blurred lip.

When I first got the package I went online to see how much a Too Faced lipstick is and I was so surprised by how much each cost and could not believe I had hundreds of dollars in lipstick! But the quality is great and it is so worth it. I loved this and I hope one day to be able to buy more from the brand. The formula is very pigmented and overall I enjoyed this collection immensely.

Have you ever tried a liquid lipstick with a metallic look? What did you think?
