Too Faced Cosmetics has some seriously maj upcoming launches, like the sure-to-be-perfect and shrouded-in-mystery Kat Von D collaboration and the waterproof version of its popular Better Than Sex mascara, the latter of which is out next week. But that's not all. Too Faced's Melted Matte Lipstick collection is due to land on April 5 and will be sold exclusively via Sephora. Are you fanning yourself with your hand, trying to catch your breath over this good news? It's OK. My reaction was samesies. No lipstick shaming here!
This new set is so beyond on trend, as matte lips are everything and everywhere right now. Hi, Kylie Jenner and your Lip Kits. Too Faced Melted Mattes fall under the brand's overall Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick range, which is known for rich, mega opaque, and decadent color, and normally comes in sponge-tipped squeeze tubes that serve as a self-contained applicator.
While there are several key changes to this new Melted version, including the packaging and formula, it is still super affordable. How much are they?
There will be a whopping 18 shades, too. Let's have a look at the Melted Mattes.
The Too Faced Melted Matte lipsticks will offer a major color payoff and come in lip gloss-like tubes with wands.
This is the traditional Melted packaging — a squeeze tube with a sponge tip. The Melted Matte lipsticks live beautifully in what looks like a non-squeeze tube with a spongy wand. A wand tip allows for better, more defined application. Matte lips are designed to be super precise and imperfections don't really... you know... work with a matte lip. So the wand feels necessary with this formulation, since it lets you have more control when you are going for suede-like, precision-look lips.
Allure reports that the the formula is more saturated than other versions of the Melted collection. It's mega moisturizing, since it's infused with avocado oil, vitamin E, and hyaluronic filling spheres. The latter offers smoothness and hydration. There's also a special ingredient dubbed "Vollulip," which plumps minus the sting.
Alright, I'm sold. Melted Mattes are perfection. Matte lipsticks can be super drying but it appears that won't be the case here. Plus, if you have had a hard time nabbing a Kylie Lip Kit, the Melted Mattes will be much more than a consolation prize.
Too Faced revolutionized the liquid lipstick category when it launched Melted, which offered long-wear lipstick in a squeeze tube and in liquified form. The brand added the Melted Metal and Melted Chocolate collections to the overall range. Now we have Melted Mattes, which offer a new formula and package.
Also, the Marcia, Marcia, Marcia shade is a TooFaced.com exclusive shade. The dark and purply On Point shade is also a Sephora exclusive.
