Too Faced Melted Clover Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 oz.) is a slightly bright, medium-dark pink with cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation that covered the lips evenly and smoothly without streaking. The consistency was lightweight, fluid without being watery or runny, and easy to work with. The dry down, however, was where the product went awry, as this clung as it dried down and set, which emphasized my lip lines and appeared “cracked” in places. It wore away unevenly over a six-hour period and was somewhat drying over time.

It is supposed to apply like 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.
