Too Faced Melted Velvet is a moderately warm-toned, dark red with a cream finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $21.00 and contains 0.4 oz.
Too Faced Melted Velvet Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a "bordeaux." It's a deepened, medium-dark red with subtle, warmer undertones and a glossy sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff, but it at least applied evenly, which these deeper, less opaque reds often struggle with. It lasted for seven hours and left a stain behind, and it was a little drying after six hours of wear. Tom Ford Beauty Leonardo (LE, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler. MAC Dangerously Chic (P, $23.00) is lighter. Estee Lauder Red Ego (P, $30.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace (LE, $22.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
