Too Faced Melted Chihuahua Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick
Too Faced Melted Chihuahua Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick

Too Faced Melted Chihuahua Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “dusty mauve.” It’s a muted, medium peachy-brown with a hint of rose and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had rich, opaque color payoff that covered really evenly and smoothly without pulling into lip lines. On m e, the color lasted for six hours, which is on the shorter side for the formula, but still a longer-wearing lip product. It was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Persistence (P, $16.00) is darker, less glossy. Estee Lauder Discreet (P, $30.00) is darker, cooler. Bite Beauty Marzipan (P, $28.00) is darker. Maybelline Touchable Taupe (940) (P, $7.49) is darker, cooler. NARS Het Loo (P, $25.00) is darker, less glossy. MAC Glamour Era (P, $22.00) is darker, cooler, less glossy.

Too Faced Melted Melon Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “guava.” It’s a bold, brightened, near-neon coral-orange with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It was intensely pigmented with full coverage achieved with little product. The texture is lightweight, comfortable, and sits well on the lips. The color wears on and on for nearly eight hours and leaves behind a warm red stain behind. It feels slightly drying after six hours of wear. Bite Beauty Crush (P, $28.00) is cooler. Tom Ford Beauty True Coral (P, $50.00) is darker. MAC Toxic Tale (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler. Hourglass Muse (P, $28.00) is darker, less glossy.

Temptalia Asks You


What brands or products have treated your skin the best as you’ve gotten older or as your skin needs have changed? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerKnowledge has really helped me over time, because I’ve actually learned about skincare (but I am by no means an expert) and have a better grasp of what ingredients are well-received, which ones are less so, and ones that most try to avoid. Brands like Origins and Kate Somerville have worked the best for me over the long-haul, and they have a good diversity in product range that I can adapt my routine based on my skin without having to go far. Softer brushes have helped minimize dryness/flaky skin on my problem areas when applying foundation, blush, etc.

Thanks to Janie for today’s question! Do you have a question idea? Submit yours here.

Too Faced Melted Frosting Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick
Too Faced Melted Frosting Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick

Too Faced Melted Frosting Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “bubblegum pink.” It’s a bright, light pink with neutral-towarm undertones and a soft shine. This shade had more of a satin finish than the glossier finish of most shades in the formula. It had mostly opaque coverage, but the lighter color made “lines” more apparent if you pressed your lips together. It had a thinner consistency, too, which I think helped it apply more smoothly than it might have with the typical consistency. It wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Maybelline Bubblegum Bloom (965) (LE, $7.49) is lighter, less pigmented, cooler. Maybelline Hibiscus Pop (715) (P, $7.49) is darker. Maybelline Petal Pink (710) (P, $7.49) is darker, cooler. MAC A Novel Romance (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC To Savour (P, $23.00) is more muted. NYX Rose (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler, less glossy. MAC Dress to Impress (LE, $16.00) is darker, more muted. Givenchy Rose Dahlia (210) (P, $36.00) is darker. Too Faced Melted Marshmallow (P, $21.00) is warmer. MAC Ladies Who Lunch (LE, $22.00) is darker. MAC Sweet Experience (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Be Fabulous (P, $22.00) is lighter, more muted. YSL Frivolous Pink (19) (DC, $34.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Rose Lily (LE, $16.00) is more muted, less pigmented. YSL Lingerie Pink (7) (P, $34.00) is more muted, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Too Faced Melted Sugar Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “nude sand.” It’s a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, but it didn’t apply as smoothly or as evenly as the majority of this range. The wear was shorter, too, at five hours. It was a little drying after three hours. MAC Luxe Natural (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted. Maybelline Blushing Beige (915) (P, $7.49) is darker, more muted. MAC Crème d’Nude (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker, more muted. MAC Angel’s Kiss (LE, $16.00) is more muted. Kat Von D Agatha (P, $21.00) is cooler, less glossy. MAC Peach Beige (LE, $16.00) is lighter, cooler. MAC Strip Poker (LE, $16.00) is lighter, less glossy. MAC Riot House (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer. MAC She’s a Peach (LE, $16.00) is darker, less glossy. MAC Romantic Breakdown (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, more muted, less glossy. Maybelline Barely Bloomed (700) (P, $7.49) is darker, more muted, cooler. Tom Ford Beauty Beau (LE, $32.00) is darker. MAC What’s Haute? (LE, $16.00) is darker, less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Too Faced Melted Velvet Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “bordeaux.” It’s a deepened, medium-dark red with subtle, warmer undertones and a glossy sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff, but it at least applied evenly, which these deeper, less opaque reds often struggle with. It lasted for seven hours and left a stain behind, and it was a little drying after six hours of wear. Tom Ford Beauty Leonardo (LE, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler. MAC Dangerously Chic (P, $23.00) is lighter. Estee Lauder Red Ego (P, $30.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace (LE, $22.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Desert Sands Eyeshadow
Makeup Geek Desert Sands Eyeshadow

Makeup Geek Shore Thing Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “true pastel, mint green with a matte finish.” It’s a light-medium, aqua green with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had decent pigmentation, but the texture was powdery to work with and tended to look almost chalky against my skin. With a primer, it would work better, but it doesn’t apply well on bare skin–sheer, uneven, and dry-looking. On bare skin, it lasted for six hours before fading. Colour Pop Flux (LE, $5.00) is lighter, cooler. Make Up For Ever S312 Mint Green (P, $21.00) is darker. Kat Von D Archangel (LE, ) is lighter, cooler. MAC Aqua (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter, cooler, less glossy. Inglot #345 (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Poppy Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “matte orange with subtle pink undertones.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark orange with warm, reddish undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable texture that was slightly powdery, so it is best patted onto the skin with minimal blending along the edges or else it can sheer out a bit. On me, it lasted for eight hours before fading. Too Faced Macaron (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Kat Von D Mandala (LE, ) is darker. MAC Red Brick (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter. MAC Farasha (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter. MAC Orange (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter. MAC Ablaze (LE, $16.00) is darker. Make Up For Ever #5 (DC, $20.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Rapunzel Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “light peachy champagne with a metallic finish.” It’s a muted, light-medium yellow gold with a frosted sheen. It had a really soft, smooth texture that wasn’t powdery, and the color payoff was fully opaque. It wore well for eight hours before fading. Cle de Peau Champagne Supernova #1 (P, ) is darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Dreamer #3 (P, ) is less shimmery. Colour Pop High Tide (P, $5.00) is lighter. Anastasia Legend (P, $12.00) is less shimmery. Gucci Beauty Tuscan Storm #1 (P, ) is lighter. Make Up For Ever ME512 Golden Beige (P, $21.00) is darker. MAC Lemon Tart (P, $16.00) is darker. Makeup Geek Bling (P, $5.99) is lighter. Tarina Tarantino Taurella (LE, ) is lighter. theBalm C1 (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter. bareMinerals Aspire (P, ) is darker. Disney by Sephora Sand in the Glass (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Wisteria Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “matte pale purple.” It’s a medium-dark, cool-toned lavender purple with a satin finish. It had decent color payoff but was on the powdery side. It tended to sheer out and apply unevenly over bare skin, so it was hard to work with. I could only see using this over a more opaque, lightly tacky base to help overcome its issues. It started to fade after six and a half hours of wear. This is supposed to be the new and improved version (for 2015), and it seems better than the original, but it still has its problems. Illamasqua Can Can (P, ) is brighter, cooler. Burberry Lavender Blue (13) (P, $29.00) is more shimmery, darker, more muted, warmer. Inglot #334 (P, $6.00) is darker. Wet ‘n’ Wild Your 15 Minutes Aren’t Up #2 (LE, $2.29) is darker, cooler. Urban Decay Tainted (LE, $18.00) is darker. MAC Pin-up Purple (LE, $16.00) is warmer. MAC Purple Haze (DC, $16.00) is darker, more muted, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek High Tea Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “matte medium brown with strong gray undertones.” It’s a medium-dark, muted olive brown with hints of almost cooler-toned green and a more semi-matte finish. I consulted with Makeup Geek on this shade while they were still working on it about a year ago, so I’m abstaining from reviewing it, but I have swatched it and pulled dupes! theBalm #42 (P, $6.50) is more shimmery, darker. Laura Mercier Pewter (P, $22.00) is lighter. MAC Flourishing (P, $16.00) is brighter. Burberry Khaki (08) (P, $29.00) is darker. Chanel Olivine (137) (LE, $34.00) is cooler. Laura Mercier Fog (LE, $22.00) is lighter. NARS Shade III (LE, $25.00) is darker. MAC Olive Blend #2 (LE, ) is warmer. MAC Stony (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Roulette Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “rosy, burnt sienna with a shimmery finish.” It’s a rich coppery brown with warm, orange undertones and a metallic finish. The color payoff was incredibly intense and opaque with a smooth, buttery consistency that made it easy to apply and blend out. It wore well for nine hours before fading. This shade was previously available in the Vegas Lights palette but is now part of the permanent line (and available individually). Colour Pop Sequin (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty Leila (416) (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #4 (P, ) is more shimmery. Guerlain Cuivre Ora (LE, $35.00) is darker. Le Metier de Beaute Carnelian Opal (LE, $30.00) is more muted. Chanel Laurier Rose (127) (LE, $34.00) is warmer. YSL Steamy Coral (05) (P, $30.00) is darker. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Haze (LE, $42.00) is darker, warmer. Colour Pop La-La (LE, $5.00) is darker. Too Faced Bon Bon #2 (P, $16.00) is darker. Makeup Geek Grandstand (P, $9.99) is warmer, darker. Urban Decay Lucky (LE, $18.00) is warmer. Anastasia Glisten (P, $12.00) is darker. Tarte Copper Kettle (LE, ) is lighter. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #9 (P, $9.99) is less shimmery, more pigmented.See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Desert Sands Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “medium camel brown with warm yellow undertones and a matte finish.” (It was originally described as a “medium terracotta matte.”) It’s a medium-dark, yellowed brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. This shade was originally released in the Vegas Lights palette, but it is now available individually (and permanently). The texture is incredibly soft, smooth, and silky without being powdery (one of the brand’s best matte eyeshadows). It lasted well for nine hours before fading.

Too Faced Natural Matte Eye Palette
Too Faced Natural Matte Eye Palette

Too Faced Natural Matte Eye Palette ($36.00 for 0.39 oz.) includes nine neutral-hued eyeshadows that are all matte in finish. The lightest and darkest shades seem to have some issues; the lightest ones were on the powdery/chalky side, while the darker shades were powdery enough that they had poorer color payoff or were more difficult to blend. They wore a little longer than the ones in the Sugar Pop palette, on average, which was nice. There are a few shades in the palette that are really silky and smooth and apply well, but then the duds bring down the palette’s overall rating.

Heaven is a light, subtly yellow-leaning beige with a matte finish. The texture was moderately powdery and dusty, which gave it a more chalky look on my skin (on fairer skin it may be less noticeable). It had semi-opaque color payoff and lasted for seven hours on me.
