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.

I am so buying this after Fig, can’t have too many dark purples right? 😀 I hope they come out with a blackened red and maybe a medium purple-grey shade soon.

This looks incredible! It’s nice to find a vampy shade that doesn’t have application issues. I have to admit when I see the words “Melted Villain”, I think of the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark…

How is this formula compared to OCC lip tars? i have pagan and while i love the color, i HATE using it because it is such a pain and it’s pretty uncomfortable on my lips. if this is better, i might have to get it because i love deep, dark purple lipsticks!

Oh my god, is this ever gorgeous. And I love that it’s being put out by such a “normal”/mainstream company — it’s so great to see colours like this one from a non-artistry brand!

I so agree! The more brands that come out with non-traditional colors, the better!!! It means I can more easily wear my purple and blue lipsticks without EVERYONE going, “is it halloween or what’s the occasion?” Sheesh. It’s about time! 😉

oh wow! I want this even though I know I can never weaar it like this! It is such perfect with that smokiness which is quite unique imo. I wonder if this can be mixed with say, occ lip tars to make a color of you liking?

They could probably be mixed, though you might not get GREAT results since the formulas are different consistencies.

I love the colour and would totally try it, I think it would be a huge shock to my friends and family, they don’t seem to like dark lips on me.

This is such a cool colour. I would never rock it though (well, never say never!) – I prefer something this dark and dramatic to be a red! But I will live vicariously through all the gorgeous girls in photos I see!

Thanks I had been waiting on you to review this 🙂 I wasn’t able to get MAC’s Potent Fig so this makes me happy….lol

I keep comparing these shades in my head, recently: Melted Villain, Feminist, Pagan, Potion (Anastasia Beverly Hills), and Desire (Fyrinnae). If you ever get your hands on Potion and Desire, I think you’ll be set on the dark purples for life!

Is it possible you are applying too much? I don’t do any tricks – just apply it straight from the tube and that’s it.

What a gorgeous colour. This is one of the exceptions from my makeup buying ban, I think. Just amazing looking!

One of my friends picked this up and isn’t sold on it. I think it’s mainly because it’s so much warmer in tone than the product pictures made it look. I’m not sold on Too Faced Melted yet and I’m not sure why. I only have Nude and it’s a beautiful color, but it feels dry after wearing it for a few hours on me.

Some shades are more hydrating than others, I think! I like the formula a lot, because it’s pretty comfy and wears a long time, but it’s not the most hydrating formula of all-time.

This also reminds me a little bit of Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Potion except this one isn’t as matte! I was just thinking today that I really don’t need another dark purple color, but now I think I might need this!

Beautiful. How would you compare this shade/formula to anastasia Beverly Hills Potion liquid lipstick? Obviously the liquid lipstick would be more matte but in terms of long term wear, color, and overall performance, which would you prefer? I’m debating between the two.

It’s a lot creamier, glossier – it is more like a liquid lipstick formula that doesn’t dry down/set in the same way that liquid lipsticks like Anastasia’s formula does, so you’ll have transfer all day long, but the color still wears a long time. I find these infinitely more comfortable to wear, but you gotta keep in mind that I’m not really a fan of the liquid lipstick formulas that totally dry down/cling as much.

Will you review Too Faced’s other new Melted colors? Fingers crossed!! I’ve never bought one but they’ve been enticing me for a while now… This definitely makes me want to get some!!
