Melted Gold

Too Faced Melted Gold Liquified Gold Lip Gloss ($21.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a rich, molte gold with warm, copper undertones and a glossy, metallic sheen. It had buildable coverage from medium (one layer) to fully opaque (two layers), which was in line with the brand’s marketing. The consistency was smooth and mostly non-sticky initially, but as the gloss set, it felt a bit thinner and was very sticky. On the upside, the gloss sat well on m y lips–it didn’t gather noticeably into my lip lines and the finish was ridiculously shiny, which gave the illusion of smoother lips.

If you’re someone who loathes tackiness in their lip products, I don’t think this would be for you, but if you love high-shine, over-the-top metallic goodness that’s long-wearing (six and a half hours!), this might be a contender. The formula was lightly hydrating over time and had a subtle, sweet scent to me.

Sibylla (786)

Chanel Sibylla (786) Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a medium, pinky coral with subtle pearl and a high-shine finish. It had medium coverage, which did not build up, and a creamier finish that resulted in slight color getting into a few of my deeper lip lines (though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance). The gloss had a lightweight feel and was easy to spread across the lips for even application. It had a smooth, gel-like consistency that was comfortable and lightly hydrating over the four hours this lasted for.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.19 oz. - $157.89 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “intense shine, hydration” with a “gel-like texture” with shades that vary from “sheer to opaque” in coverage. The consistency has a smooth, lightweight texture that can feel more like a gel-like texture with some of the sheerer shades and more like a cream and gel hybrid with more opaque shades. It’s a formula that’s comfortable to wear with light tackiness that lasts anywhere from two to four hours and is hydrating over time.

There was a strong, mirror-like shine across the shades that was very reminiscent of the prior Glossimer formula. There was a faint floral scent, and with some shades, I got a subtle taste of perfume. The doe foot applicator was more unique (at least, to me) with a very curved edge that was great for my bottom lip while flipping it gave me a more paddle-shaped edge that worked better for my top lip.

I would love to see Chanel introduce color descriptions on their retail website, especially for a formula like this where there can be such a huge difference in pigmentation (and finish) from one shade to the next that isn’t obvious from a product photo.

ColourPop x iluvsarahii 2 Lip Bundle

ILuvSarahII 2

Colour Pop ILuvSarahII 2 Lip Bundle ($15.00 for oz.) consists of a gloss and two liquid lipsticks. Each shade can be purchased individually if desired, which is something I really appreciate ColourPop doing. The gloss was a disappointment with respect to how it was described (opaque, and it was rather sheer), but the two liquid lipsticks were quite nice. I imagine if someone likes sheer gloss, Atole will be just fine!

Angel

Milk Makeup Angel Lip Metal ($24.00 for 0.26 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with warm, brown undertones and fine, multi-colored pearl. It retained a semi-glossy finish for a solid hour or until I pressed my lips together, which seemed to tamp down the glossiness, though the act of pressing and letting my lips peel apart (the texture was very, very tacky) lifted color along the center of my upper and lower lips. The texture was initially smooth and easy to spread across my lips, but it developed into a much tackier, thinner consistency within a few minutes. It had good color coverage that went on evenly. This shade lasted for five and a half hours and felt non-drying, though it wasn’t comfortable to wear for me.

Formula Overview

$24.00/0.26 oz. - $92.31 Per Ounce

The Lip Metal formula is supposed to be "pigment-packed" with a "foil-like" finish that has "comfortable to wear" that is designed to be long-wearing. It has more of a setting period than a true dry down; it has more of a thicker, smooth gloss-like feel as it sets down to a thin, very tacky texture. After waiting 30 minutes for it to dry down or set on me, I tried pressing my lips together to test, and I could feel my lips slowly peel away from each other as it was painfully tacky, and then it revealed a less glossy finish each time I pressed my lips together and pulled them apart. The color lifted along the center of my mouth, so it's the type of product that is high-maintenance as I could not press my lips together during wear without ruining the application. If I did not press my lips down, it was still partially glossy after an hour of wear. The lasting time varied wildly based on what I did--whether I ate or drank or talked--the more talking, the worse the wear, as my lips seemed to press together more often. Just going about my normal routine, they lasted between five and seven hours on me and were non-drying.

Buffy

Milk Makeup Buffy Lip Metal ($24.00 for 0.26 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and multi-colored pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer with a smooth, spreadable consistency that developed into a tacky, clingy texture that really hugged the lips to the point where it was uncomfortable after an hour of wear. I did not feel like it was actually drying my lips out after removing the product. It remained slightly glossy for an hour or until I pressed my lips together. This shade lasted for six hours on me.

MAC MamaStarrr Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had a smooth, moderately tacky texture that was fairly easy to spread across the lips. The pigmentation was good–not quite opaque–and applied with very minimal streaking, though there was some color that gathered into my lip lines. It wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$17.00/0.10 oz. - $170.00 Per Ounce

The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way. The formula has a very glossy, high-shine finish with a light-medium weight and moderate tackiness.

I have found that newer Lipglasses (over the last couple of years) are smoother and not quite as tacky as the formula was many years ago. They wear from three to six hours on me and are usually lightly hydrating. MAC recently updated the shade range and packaging for the range (though the formula was said to be unchanged), so worth noting is that with that packaging change came a reduction in quantity to 0.10 fl. oz. (was 0.17 fl. oz.), which may matter for some but not everyone.
