We have lipstick, lip gloss, lip balms, lip stains, lip “tar”, and now liquid lipstick?! Hell yes. Liquid lipsticks are taking over the beauty world and it seems like every brand is racing to formulate and sell their own! The “Melted”s are the first liquid lipstick to hit Canadian Sephora so I was really excited to try this. They are supposed to go on like a gloss and give you pigment like a stain. I picked up Melted Berry, after trying on Melted Candy but finding it too be to hot pink for winter.
WHAT I LIKE:
-This goes on like a dream!! Seriously. It just glides SUPER smoothly, basically like a really rich gloss.
-It retains its colour when it dries. (the texture changes from shiny to a bit matte)
-Touch ups are ridiculously easy- not always the case with matte lipsticks as they are so dry
-Quick to apply and a very small amount gives full colour effect
-No liner needed at all (not that I actually use it anyway…)
-After several hours of wear, my lips don’t feel extremely dry
WHAT I DON’T LIKE:
-This started to bleed in the corners of my mouth after eating
-Difficult to rub off the bleed unless you have a makeup remover handy
-Fades after eating more than MAC matte lipstick would
I’ve seriously gotten so many compliments when I wear this. The finish of it just looks gorgeous and I cannot believe how easy it is to apply!! Although it’s $25 CAD, you don’t need to use very much of it at all so I can see it lasting ages. I would have said this was almost perfect aside from how it bled into the corners of my mouth when I ate. To be fair I had chinese food, so I’d say avoid greasy food with this on, no matter how carefully you think you’re eating! This was fine when I ate sushi and there was no bleeding, but it did fade a bit. If you aren’t eating or drinking too much, this can last quite a while. This product is available in 18 colours and is cruelty free.
