Melt Cosmetics Strange and Unusual ElecTRIP Lip Paint ($19.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a brighter, pinky-red base with lighter flecks of fuchsia and pink sparkle that gave it a metallic finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage where the base had less intensity than the shimmer. The texture was more fluid and not too thick or too thin when initially applied, and then it dried down to a more "matte" metallic, transfer-resistant finish, but it wasn't conducive to a second layer. When I tried to build up coverage, it seemed to result in some lifting and flaking. The product applied fairly evenly but was prone to pulling into my lip lines as it dried down.
The product stained immediately with a very intense, cherry red kind of color that lingered and lingered. This was the last shade I tested, and it looked like I was part-vampire as the stain clung to the inner area of my lips quite a bit, but it was a blotchy effect overall. You'll definitely want to be prepared to wear more opaque lipstick after wearing this shade! It lasted for over six hours and was somewhat drying over time.
