I LOVE this color. It is an absolutely stunning berry (of course) color on light, warm toned skin. It definitely goes on a little shiny, but mattifies once it dries, no worries. The only problem I have with it is that it doesn't last as long as I'd like it too, and I find I do have to reapply one or twice throughout the day to keep the color. But it's so easy to apply and it feels so nice and smooth on my lips that I'm okay with doing so.

My favorite of the Melted line, maybe even my favorite of all liquid lipsticks. The formula wears nicely on me. It's definitely not moisturizing, but it's also not overly drying. Layering over a balm or a primer would help if your lips are feeling dry (I do it often). The felt applicator is really nice for application, I didn't feel the need to reach for a brush. It's very pigmented and applies evenly, not much is needed for full coverage.

Great color, but if you're basing this on the packaging, it's much more neutral than pink. It's almost a terra-cotta shade. I'm a MAC NW13 and I think it pairs really nicely with my skin because I wear a lot of copper eye makeup. It takes a while to dry, but once it does, it stays put pretty well. Not so great after eating, but drinking with a straw is fine, as long as it's dry. It's buildable and strong on its own, but be careful not to build too much because it definitely accentuates the negatives on your lips. I still haven't figured out how to keep my lips hydrated before and after a full day's application. This isn't something you can wear every day, unless your lips are always hydrated. I've been wearing this in winter, however, and it's hard to stay moisturized in a Minnesota winter. In summary, I really love this product, even though it has its flaws. It applies really great and lasts awhile. If you can make this your main lip product, excellent! But for most of us, I'd recommend rotating this every other day.

I actually hated these the first time I tried them--it looked like I'd tried to paint my lips with chalk. But now I'm wondering if the tester I used was just really dried out…when I tried it again at Sephora the other day for the heck of it, I really loved it! Very smooth and long-lasting. And it's a great pink shade--bright but not obnoxiously so.

I love this color! Not sure why all the bad reviews on Peony but it is such a wearable everyday color. Im definitely more of a nudes/light pinks lipstick chooser (haha) so this is perfect. These are nothing like those horrible Anastasia liquid lipsticks, yuck! Those are so drying for me, while these are very hydrating in my opinion.

I really like Melted Jelly Donut, though I probably own similar shades ( I LOVE brights). On NW15 me, Jelly Donut appears as a bright-but-not-neon medium raspberry, with a satin finish and a subtle shimmer. Jelly Donut has more of a matte finish than I usually wear, and if you're not accustomed to anything other than a very creamy/emollient feel, this is going to take some getting used to. If you put gloss over this, wear will be pretty seriously compromised. I find this product to perform very similarly to the OCC Lip Tars, though the slant-tip applicator on the Melteds' tube makes them easier to apply than the Lip Tars. I get a good two to three hours wear out of Jelly Donut, especially if I don't eat or drink. If I need longer wear, I layer Jelly Donut over a similarly-colored stain. Though I find the > $20 price tag a bit steep, but I'll still probably buy others in this line, like Berry, Violet, and/or Fuchsia.

This color is beautiful and the pigmentation is deep. This came out as a deep orchid. It is easy to apply using the included sponge tip, or it also applies well with a brush. The formula and this color lasts and lasts--I've worn it for entire shifts at work without reapplying, and I've also worn it out shopping, out to eat, out for drinks, and rarely have to reapply. The color will fade but not come off completely. It is neither drying nor moisturizing, but I do like to wear it when I'm sick and my lips aren't as smooth as I'd like--this formula is very forgiving towards mild chapping! It does leave a faint stain behind, and it is lightly vanilla scented.

I'm loving this!! I bought it for the unusual shade - got to love a warm toned purple - but I love the formula too. It's VERY long wearing - it's neither hydrating nor drying, so I find I need to pat some lip conditioner over the top throughout the wear. It's actually quite easy to apply using the sponge-tip applicator - I expected it to be messy, but it creates quite a nice line. I found it easier to do my cupids bow with this than with a normal lipstick bullet. Overall I'm very impressed and I will be looking into more of the shades!!
