Happy Thursday everyone! I hope all is well. 🙂
Awhile back I purchased the Too Faced Melted Kisses lip set. It included 4 mini versions of Too Faced’s Melted Lipstick and as I had really liked Melted Fuchsia, I thought it was perfect to try out some of their other colors. Plus, this set has a good array of colors for different looks and with a long-lasting formula, it was too good to pass up.
The Melted Lipsticks come in a squeeze tube with a soft angled tip for easy application. They are described as “having the shine of a gloss, lasting power of a stain, and pigment-packed color of a liquid lipstick, all in one high-impact formula.”
While these lipsticks have a creamy texture and are pigment-packed, the shine doesn’t last long as it dries to a matte finish. If you’re not used to the matte finish, it can take you awhile to adjust to this formula. The color payoff however is amazing! I found the brighter/darker colors last longer than the neutral ones but they are all great nevertheless.
The shades included are:
Melted Berry– berry red
Melted Peony-dusty rose
Melted Fuchsia– hot pink
Melted Nude– warm peachy nude
Left to right: Melted Berry, Melted Peony, Melted Fuchsia, and Melted Nude
Overall: If you’re looking for long-lasting lip colors with a great color selection(and cruelty-free), these are worth a look. Sometimes I use a little bit of lip balm underneath them so the formula doesn’t feel super matte. Also, make sure your lips aren’t dry or flaky when using these as I saw it clung on and accentuated these aspects.
With the holiday season, Bite Beauty has released “a limited-edition lip collection with Crème Lipstick Duos, Matte Crème Lip Crayons, and Lush Fruit lip glosses.” These Mix N’ Mingle Lip Minis can be used as cute stocking stuffers or serve as an introduction to the brand. As I own a few bright colors from Bite Beauty, I opted for The Luminous Crème Lipstick Duo.
The shades included are:
Retsina– natural pink
Musk– pink brown.
As I wore Musk, I realized the color looked familiar and as I glanced at my lipstick collection, I knew why. Musk is practically a dupe for M.A.C. Viva Glam V!
I was introduced to Viva Glam V in high school by a makeup artist who did my makeup for my senior portrait and since then, I have repurchased this several times- both the lipstick and the lipgloss. I love the versatility of this lipstick as you can use it with any look, be it natural or bold and smokey.
Overall: As much as I love Bite Beauty, I wasn’t super thrilled with this color selection as I already have something similar to it. Retsina and Musk are both beautiful natural colors but for $4 more, you can purchase the full-size Viva Glam V lipstick from M.A.C. Plus, every cent goes to the M.A.C. AIDS fund.
Have you tried any of these colors? What are your thoughts?
