Too Faced It's Happening Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick
Too Faced It’s Happening Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick

Too Faced It’s Happening Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is described as a “matte bright magenta.” It’s a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a thin formula that applied smoothly and evenly. It dried down to a totally flat, matte finish that was slightly powdery-feeling. The color lasted for five hours and was drying while worn. Colour Pop Mars (P, $6.00) is warmer, more muted, darker (90% similar). MAC Pleasure Bomb (LE, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar).

Too Faced Lady Balls Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is described as a “matte true red.” It’s a deep red with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff that applied fairly smoothly, but there were very subtle streaks that didn’t go away after it dried down. I don’t think they’re visible, as the color is bright and dark enough to hide them at a normal viewing distance. The texture was dry to the touch, a little powdery, and clingy. It lasted for five and a half hours, which made it one of the better-wearing shades. The formula was moderately drying. MAC Feels So Grand (P, $21.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Creeper (P, $6.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar). Sephora Always Red (LE, $14.00) is brighter, lighter (90% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is supposed to apply l ike a gloss but dry to “an ultra-matte, opaque finish” that is “never dry, shriveled, or cracked” that should “last for hours.” Most of the shades are unforgiving once they dry down and emphasize lip lines, look “cracked” if you smile, though they feel lighter-weight than they look. It’s one of the more unflattering liquid lipsticks I have tried as many shades highlighted lip lines, and while the lipstick itself wasn’t extremely clingy, there was a dryness present there that, at times, made my lips tingle/ache. For me, the wear was between four and six hours, as a lot of the shades faded unevenly and were faster to breakdown than the average liquid lipstick. The formula is thin, more water-like (reminded me of ColourPop’s formula but sometimes thinner) with a fairly quick dry-down time.

Too Faced Miso Pretty & Queen B Melted Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Too Faced Miso Pretty Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick
Too Faced Miso Pretty Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick

Too Faced Miso Pretty Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is described as a “matte soft ballet slipper pink.” It’s a light, peachy-pink with subtle, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It was very chalky once it dried down, and it looked “cracked’ as soon as I smiled, but worse, it remained visibly separated even when I relaxed my mouth (you can see that in the swatch). It had no staying power–it broke down within four hours–for a fully dry, liquid lipstick formula. The consistency was clingy and was drying over time. Colour Pop Vice (P, $6.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). MAC Promise Me (P, $20.00) is less glossy, more muted (90% similar). MAC Strip Poker (LE, $17.00) is glossier, lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Agatha (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Pillowtalk (P, $20.00) is more muted, darker (85% similar). Kat Von D Muneca (P, $20.00) is darker (85% similar). Kat Von D Noble (P, $21.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). Tarte Salty (P, $20.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Too Faced Queen B Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is described as a “matte soft mauve.” It’s a muted, medium mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It applied fairly well, but I couldn’t keep it from separating once the color dried down, so it emphasized lip lines and made the color easier to flake and fade. It lasted for four and a half hours and was drying. Make Up For Ever Rosewood (105) (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Really Me (P, $17.00) is glossier, lighter (80% similar). Colour Pop Shimmy (DC, $6.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Oblivion (P, $17.00) is glossier, lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Clueless (LE, $6.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Thistle (P, $26.00) is glossier, cooler, darker (80% similar). Colour Pop Contempo (LE, $5.00) is glossier, warmer, darker (80% similar). Kat Von D Lovecraft (P, $21.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). Kat Von D Lovesick (P, $20.00) is cooler, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Too Faced Mrs. Roper & Naughty by Nature Melted Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Too Faced Mrs. Roper Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick
Too Faced Mrs. Roper Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick

Too Faced Mrs. Roper Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is described as a “matte bright tangerine.” It’s a bright, neon, medium orange with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had great color payoff with a thin consistency that applied evenly without issue, but once it dried down, the color separated and made the lips look “cracked” whenever I smiled or widened my mouth at all. There’s something about the dry down of this formula that just seems to sit poorly on my lips; I usually only have major issues with the color separating at dry down with lighter shades, if I do. The color lasted for five hours and started to flake off, and this one was quite drying. Urban Decay Crash (P, $17.00) is glossier (95% similar). Kat Von D A-Go-Go (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Red Square (P, $27.00) is darker (90% similar). Anastasia #7 (Vol. 1) (P) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Darling Clementine (LE, $17.00) is glossier, darker (90% similar). MAC Neon Orange (P, $17.00) is glossier, darker (85% similar). MAC Forbidden Sunrise (LE, $17.00) is glossier, lighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Quirky (P, $15.00) is more muted (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Too Faced Naughty by Nature Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is described as a “matte deep chocolate.” It’s a dark brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. This shade never quite dried down; it was lightly tacky but pressing my lips together didn’t lift color, so that was a happy surprise! It had rich pigmentation and applied evenly. It emphasized lip lines but didn’t look as “cracked” when I smiled as other shades. It’s not ideal, but it was one of the easier shades to wear over time. The formula was moderately drying over the five hours it lasted. Colour Pop Limbo (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Grunge (P, $20.00) is glossier, darker (90% similar). Anastasia #8 (Vol. 1) (P) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Wannabe (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Kae (LE, $6.00) is warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Grey Over It (P, $7.49) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Fortune (P, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). Tarte Crop Top (P, $20.00) is glossier, cooler, lighter (85% similar). MAC Chocotease (LE, $21.00) is darker (85% similar). Maybelline Coffee Addiction (P, $7.49) is warmer, lighter (80% similar). MAC Antique Velvet (P, $17.00) is glossier, cooler, darker (80% similar).

Too Faced Unicorn & Who’s Zoomin’ Who Melted Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Too Faced Unicorn Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick
Too Faced Unicorn Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick

Too Faced Unicorn Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is described as a “matte bright orchid.” It had semi-opaque color coverage (the natural lip color still comes through a bit) with a mostly matte finish, though it wasn’t as flat as the other shades in the range. It applied slightly unevenly. The texture was thin, smooth, and lightweight, but the formula was still drying over the five hours it lasted. Dior Superstitious Matte (789) (P, $35.00) is glossier (95% similar). Kat Von D Susperia (P, $20.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Vintage (P, $20.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Too Faced Who’s Zoomin’ Who Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is described as a “matte deep sapphire.” It’s a deep navy blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It was slightly thicker than the other shades, so the dry down was longer. However, it dried to a very dry consistency where parts of the color flaked off as soon as I moved my lips. The color “cracked” when I smiled. I had blue bits and flakes coming off all over my coffee cup, even after letting it set and dry down for four hours. I tried re-wearing it again, and I still had issues with the color flaking just by pressing my lips together a few times. It was extremely drying. Colour Pop Climax (P, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Heroine (P, $17.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Indigo-go (LE, $17.00) is glossier, lighter (90% similar).

Too Faced Bend and Snap! Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is described as a “matte deep raspberry.” It’s a dark, plummy berry with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had less of a “flat matte” finish compared to 1998, and it was much more forgiving in finish as a result–no severe “cracking” upon smiling. It lasted for six hours but was fairly drying. NARS Damned (P, $27.00) is more muted, darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Velvet Violet (16) (P, $50.00) is glossier, darker (90% similar). Tarte Fly (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar).
