Too Faced Melted Villain Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick
Too Faced Melted Villain Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “black plum.” It’s a blackened purple with reddish-violet undertones and a glossy, cream finish. Colour Pop Feminist (P, $5.00) is more matte, darker. NYX Betrayal (P, $6.00) is lighter, more shimmery. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pagan (P, $18.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Potent Fig (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Smoked Purple (LE, $16.00) is lighter, more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
It was intensely pigmented, and the color goes on evenly and smoothly–more impressive given it is a more emollient formula that could easily have turned streaky. It’s a deeper shade, and while the edges are surprisingly clean even without a lip brush, I think a lip brush or going back and cleaning-up the edge is a must for this shade. It’s comfortable to wear and is lightly hydrating over time. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably, though I noticed some feathering along the upper lip line after the fifth hour of wear.
