I have loved Too Faced as a brand for at least 12 years when the brand was available to buy from Boots and I used to use my staff discount card on their products. I still have quite a few of the nostalgic Too Faced products within my collection but I obviously don’t use them anymore – does anyone else own/remember the Too Faced Liquif-Eye Shadow Collection (they should totally bring that back) or the Too Faced Pixie Pin Ups Palette?! I can’t recall ever being disappointed by a Too Faced product which is pretty huge considering how many of their products I own so I’m always excited to try their products, especially as we can now get our hands on their products thanks to Debenhams. I love the Too Faced Melted Liquified Liquid Lipsticks as they’re so long-wearing and comfortable on the lips, but I do prefer a glossy finish.
Glosses get such an hard time but I love them as I find them to be so much more comfortable and flattering as they don’t emphasise texture of the lips and they’re rarely the sticky and gritty glosses they used to be so I was thrilled when the Too Faced Melted Latex High Shine Lipsticks launched as they sounded like my perfect lip product. The Too Faced Melted Latex High Shine Lipsticks are available in a total of sixteen shades and retail for £19 each, contain 7ml of product and I have two of the sixteen shades in Love U, Mean It and Hot Mess.
Too Faced say;
“Using exclusive technology that keeps high-shine lipsticks liquid, Melted Latex redefines the lips with honey-like texture that ensures gloss clings to lips with a latex shine. Doe-foot applicator comfortably coats lips in bursts of intense, buildable, lacquered color that lasts for hours.”
- Exclusive technology keeps high-shine lipsticks liquid for longer wear
- High-impact, super-rich, saturated pigment offers lacquer-like vibrancy and juicy shine
- Stays saturated with color
- Doe-foot applicator allows for precise application
If you have one of the Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Liquid Lipsticks, the packaging of the Too Faced Melted Latex High Shine Lipsticks is exactly the same with a clear plastic tube which is flat so it fits nicely within a pocket, except the Latex formula have a shiny gold ‘collar’ and black lid as opposed to the matte gold collar and matte gold lid on the Melted Mattes. The applicator is a doefoot applicator with a small well within the middle which holds a little extra product so you don’t have to keep going back into the tube. Too Faced are so well known for their beautifully scented makeup products but these have an extremely subtle pineapple scent which I love but you can’t smell the pineapple once they’re on the lips; although I kinda wish you could as they smell so good.
In terms of formula they really did surprise me and they’re unlike any other glossy lip product I’ve tried. They are quite thick and very intensely pigmented with the top swatch of each two swatches of the two shades shown above being just one swipe of the doefoot – look at that pigment… I really didn’t expect them to be so insanely pigmented for a glossy formula. Love U, Mean It is a bold coral shade whilst Hot Mess is a deep berry shade and they’re both almost totally opaque in just one swipe.
Sometimes with glosses I like to put a tiny amount in the centre of my lips and press my lips together to spread the gloss evenly over the lips for a subtle sheen but you can’t do that with these as they’re so rich in pigment, you need to use the applicator to apply the colour to the entirety of the lips. They are gorgeously glossy on the lips but I’ve found you can blot them a little with some tissue for more of a satin finish too and they wear for around four hours before I need to worry about doing any touch-ups.
Due to how pigmented and thick they are, you can definitely feel them on the lips but I honestly don’t find them sticky nor do I find that my lips stick together. I love that you can apply them without any prior preparation of the lips and they’re forgiving on any uneven texture or dryness due to the glossy finish and they don’t migrate out of the lip line either so I’ve never needed to use a lipliner with each either shade. I would love to try the nude and lighter pink shades within the range such as Hopeless Romantic, Peekaboo and Safe Word as I know I’d get a lot of wear out of them for everyday, more minimal makeup.
I would love to know if you’ve tried the Too Faced Melted Latex High Shine Lipsticks? Do you have a favourite shade?
