Becca Melon is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark coral with a cream finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $24.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Becca Melon Ultimate Lipstick Love ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is slightly brighter, medium-dark pink-coral with warm undertones and a creamy finish with a hint of barely-there, gold pearl. The lipstick had a smooth, creamy consistency that had light slip--enough to glide on and feel comfortable to apply and to wear but not enough to feel like it was slipping and sliding around during wear.
It had excellent pigmentation with full coverage achieved in one layer. From the range, it wasn't quite as forgiving of imperfections from my natural lip texture compared to other shades, but color wasn't prone to settling into my lip lines. This shade lasted well for four and a half hours, which was a good wear time in general but not as long as the eight hours marketed.

These lip colors are made with pure color pigments coated in light-reflecting oils to deliver luxurious color with up to eight hours of wear in one swipe. They are also formulated with hydrating hyaluronic acid and moisturizing olive and avocado oils to visibly soften with a satin finish.
