This set contains three deluxe Melted Lipsticks and three coordinating deluxe Love Flush blushes.
Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Nude (neutral nude)
Love Flush Blush in Love Hangover (perfect warm pink)
Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Peony (dusty rose)
Love Flush in Justify My Love (bright pink w/ fine gold sparkle)
Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Fig (dusty plum)
Love Flush Blush in Your Love Is King (plumy rose)
The set with the lip and cheek duos is perfectly color matched. One is nude/peach themed, one is pink themed, and my favorite/the last is plum themed. The mini blushes weigh 2g each and they come in a matching color plastic packing. I wish the packaging was identical to the original full-sized Love Flush Blushes (how I wish the mini’s were heart shaped). The deluxe 5ml Melted Liquid Lipsticks are exact mini replicas of the originals with the fuzzy squeeze-applicator included.
Let me start this review with the Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks
Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks – Nude, Peony & Fig
Packaging – With the golden lid, the packaging on the outer tube matches exactly to the color inside. Totally adore it. So easy to select the shade you want. These are intensely pigmented and a little bit goes a very long way, so this will last you for a long time.
About the applicator – Too Faced comes with this “No brush needed” claim. They say – “Innovative, angled velvet tip which allows for precise application” . Well, Too Faced – I think this is over
hyped or a little over claimed. The applicator in real is fuzzy and product comes out by squeezing the tube portion. About the whole no brush needed claim, I find the applicator un-hygienic.
While I agree that liquid lipstick is intensely pigmented, so the slightest touch of it creates an almost ‘bleeding’ lip-color. But the fact that I have to use the same tip again and again makes it a little inconvenient. I can’t clean it properly. Also, girls with smaller lips like me will have a hard time in applying the product straight from the tube. I suggest you girls to use a lip brush to shape/outline first, and then fill the rest part of your lips straight from the tube.
Now, the consistency
These are very creamy and applies smoothly onto lips.
The consistency is opaque and creamy. This lipstick provides about 6-7 hours of wear on me and is little bit hydrating and non drying on lips..It lost it’s shine after around 3 hours of the wear-time.
These Melted Lipsticks don’t quite set so they are quite transfer-prone. They leave behind a stain. I found the darker shade, Fig to be long wearing and even after hours of wearing – It left a beautiful berry stain on my lips which I loved.
Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick ‘Nude’ – a soft warm nude/peach shade. The coverage is medium. But, this is not that kind of shade which matches all skintones. If you are above NC42 in MAC – you may find it less flattering.
Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick ‘Peony’ – A light pink shade. The pigmentation is medium and the formula feels comfortable on lips. It applies creamy and is hydrating as well. The Melted Lipsticks don’t quite set fully and so they are transfer-prone. These can stain your tea cups. So, it’s good to bloat it using a tissue after applying. I do the lip hack – cover the lip area with tissue and pat some loose powder using a blending brush. This bloats really well and increase the wear time and also help set the product quite well.
Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick ‘Fig’ – My favorite shade from this set. A pretty berry/mauve liquid lipstick with super pigmentation. The coverage is too good for this one and the color is flattering on every skintone.
Here are the swatches of these melted lipsticks
Too Faced Love Flush Long-lasting Blush – Justify My Love, Love Hangover, Your Love Is King
I love these mini blushes except for the packaging. i would have loved the mini hearts instead. It’s so tiny.
Too Faced Love Flush Blush in ‘Justify My Love’ – A pretty pink shade with golden sparkles. The pigmentation is decent and texture is soft too. I haven’t used any full sized Love Flush blushes and so i can’t compare the pigmentation of this with the full sized one. However, this one is not intensely pigmented and all. I need to put my brush and swirl 2-3 times to get the color.
Too Faced Love Flush Blush in ‘Love Hangover’ – A peach/coral shade with golden shimmers that are very subtle. The pigmentation is quite nice and again, the texture is creamy and soft.
Too Faced Love Flush Blush in ‘Your Love is King’ – A nice matte plum shade. This shade is not powdery or soft like other 2 blushes. It’s little hard to take the color to brush. But once its put on – it’s the most gorgeous color that matches every skintone.
Here are the swatches.
Overall, It’s a great set and a lovely stocking stuffer. I love the mini melted ones a lot. Other than paying for full sized product, This set is a great way to try some of the shades. I am not a fan of the blushes. I remember reading ave reviews about full sized ‘Love Flush’ blushes. But, I found these mini blushes to be of average quality. pigmentation for all 3 blushes are medium and is buildable. I expected the blush ‘ Your Love is King’ to be of high pigmentation. But ‘Your Love is King’ mini blush appeared more sheer. I would love to try the full sized ones sometime in future. Maybe when they are on sale 😀 🙂 About Melted Lipsticks – I am happy with them. They are transfer prone because of their formulation. But, that’s ok. It’s expected to be like that. Also, the fuzzy tip applicator does not replace your lip brush. It’s great for filling in, but no way it’ll give that outline as precise as a lip brush.
Currently this set is sold out on Too Faced site. You may still purchase this from Amazon
