Too Faced Melted Gold Liquified Gold Lip GlossToo Faced Melted Gold Liquified Gold Lip Gloss ($21.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a rich, molte gold with warm, copper undertones and a glossy, metallic sheen. It had buildable coverage from medium (one layer) to fully opaque (two layers), which was in line with the brand’s marketing. The consistency was smooth and mostly non-sticky initially, but as the gloss set, it felt a bit thinner and was very sticky. On the upside, the gloss sat well on m y lips–it didn’t gather noticeably into my lip lines and the finish was ridiculously shiny, which gave the illusion of smoother lips.
If you’re someone who loathes tackiness in their lip products, I don’t think this would be for you, but if you love high-shine, over-the-top metallic goodness that’s long-wearing (six and a half hours!), this might be a contender. The formula was lightly hydrating over time and had a subtle, sweet scent to me.
