Melted Clover II

Too Faced Melted Clover II Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bright, light-medium pink-coral with warm unde3rtones and a flat, matte finish. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which spread evenly and smoothly across my lips for even application. The consistency was thinner but not watery, which made it easy to maneuver the color along the edges of my lips. It dried down within 30 seconds with a transfer-resistant finish that was a touch tacky (but didn’t lift up color) for a half hour or so. The product did pull away at some of my deeper lip lines when I smiled broadly and looked “cracked.” It worew well for six and a half hours and was slightly drying.

Formula Overview

$21.00/0.23 oz. - $91.30 Per Ounce

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.

NYX

I like that NYX has a really robust catalog of shades, which makes them more inclusive across the entire brand, not just complexion, and they’ve been like that for a long time. The older I get, the more important I see accessibility being. Because they have so many products, and they do seem to release and discontinue formulas somewhat regularly, it can be hard to keep up, though.

Inner Light (01)

Shiseido Inner Light (01) InnerGlow Cheek Powder ($29.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light, pinky-beige with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation (though it might seem more medium-coverage based on how close it appears to my skin in my arm swatch) in a single layer with a very shiny, very frosted finish. This is more like a true highlighter for most skin tones but on very fair skin tones, it would add color as well. While the powder had a smooth, velvety texture that was almost cream-like, it did not sit as well on my skin as I anticipated; I found it rather accentuating of my natural texture. I thought it was just that day I swatched it, but it was the same on subsequent applications. The highlighter stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.14 oz. - $207.14 Per Ounce

According to the brand, it's a highlighting blush that "stay[s] put for eight hours" with "high color payoff and superior glide." The shades I tried were semi-opaque to opaque in pigmentation with finishes that ranged from satin to metallic. I found that the most shimmery shade I tried, Inner Light, did emphasize my skin's natural texture, while the others did not. The powders had a smooth, almost creamy-like texture that was firmer in the pan (no excess product kicked up), but it picked up well with brushes, adhered to skin evenly, and blended with ease along the edges. The wear was between eight and nine hours on me.

Melrose

NARS Melrose Hardwired Eyeshadow (2018) ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had a a slightly drier, more loosely-pressed consistency, which made it difficult to work with dry without getting a moderate amount of fallout and sheerer coverage. If I used it with a dampened brush, the pigmentation was opaque in a single laye,r and the majority of the product adhered to my lid. It lasted for five hours with fallout when used dry but lingered for closer to eight hours with slight fallout when applied with a dampened brush.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.04 oz. - $550.00 Per Ounce

The formula "can be applied dry or with a dampened brush for stronger intensity." It is a very glittery formula, and naturally, it performed significantly better when used with a dampened brush or an adhesive base. Applied dry, they were typically sheer to semi-sheer with light to moderate fallout when blended out on my lid. They lasted between five and seven hours with light to moderate fallout. Applied wet, they were typically semi-opaque to opaque with minimal fallout when blended out and minimal to slight fallout during wear (about eight hours). The consistency was soft, slightly drier/chunkier, but they the base colors were blendable and easy enough to use. I did find that they applied decently over primer when applied dry compared to on bare skin.
