Yesterday I woke up to this message from a friend on Facebook:
Are you watching the new Project Runway? According to the Mary Kay rep “berry is the new red”. What do you think?
Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
Grrrrrrl! All I can say to that is YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS! Berries and violets/purples are the IT colour for spring and I’m happy to proclaim that from my little soapbox. I told you all about how I was in love with my new Maybelline Color Elixir in Vision in Violet and I think I may have just surpassed that obsession by falling deeper in love with this Too Faced Melted Liquefied Lipstick in Melted Violet!
The colour pay off is just delicious! As you can see in the pics (below) the swatch was a direct match for my lips. The formula is ultra creamy and feels like a tube of lipstick has been melted down and mixed with cream – well played Too Faced! The best part is that it’s a matte formula but it’s not drying at all, which caught me by surprise. I was ready to have to combat tacky, sticky lips with some lip balm on top but it wasn’t necessary.
My favourite thing about this Melted liquid lipstick is the packaging, I love the tube and the little angled velvet tip. It’s so satisfying to squeeze and watch the little worms of colour burst out! This was $21USD from Sephora, but is also available from Mecca for $28AUD so I may just have to pick up some more in spring colours; Berry and Black Plum!
My only fault with it is that it’s not very long lasting. I probably get a good two hours before it starts to fade (that’s with drinking only) and I have to reapply.
Are you a fan of Too Faced Melted Lipsticks? Why has it taken me so long to jump on this bandwagon?! I may just have to change the name of the blog to A Berry Lip And A Nude Shoe for spring – what do you think?
