Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquified Lipsticks

Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquified Lipstick ($21) are a new selection of chocolate inspired liquid lipstick shades that launched with the Too Faced Spring 2016 Collection. Too Faced released these new Liquified Lipsticks in six total shades three of which are the original formula and three of which are metallic.

As much as I love the new Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette I was actually most excited about the Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquified Lipsticks because I’m some sort of nude lip look thing lately and I felt for sure these colors would be great nudes.

I want to tell you ALL about how I really loved the Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquified Lipstick shades! I want to rave them and jump up and down in delight how well the shades worked for me. That simply wasn’t the case.

I am crushed how these simply refused to work for me! They might work out on a darker skin tone or someone might just find their perfect nude in this batch but I have my reservations.

First off, let me start with original formula. As I mentioned above there are three shades here that were created with the original cream formula which I happen to be a lover of. Those shades are Chocolate Cherries, Chocolate Milkshake, and Chocolate Honey. Aside from the shades that simply didn’t work for me these had a great consistency and texture. They do have a strong chocolate flavor and fragrance which I personally loved but just a heads up if you’re sensitive. These are a squeeze tube with an attached sponge applicator for application. I’ve always like the packaging myself as I find the tip of the sponge fits the contour of my lips quite nicely. These have a cream finish with a thick liquid-y consistency that applies very easily on lips even drier ones like my own. As much as I love the Liquified there have been shades that take to falling into my natural lip lines but none of these new shades had the issue and all three had a smooth, even finish on my lips. I don’t have an issue with the formula moving, migrating, or feathering and they wear for a good five to six hours. All three shades have opaque color on first application and they build easily for even more intensity!

The only issue I had was with the colors. They didn’t quite work out for me. Chocolate Milkshake was the best of the three as it is a nice nude peach that worked well with my skin type without giving me a case of zombie lips. However, Chocolate Honey was a dark tan that did in fact give me a case of zombie lips so that one was out and Chocolate Cherries was a LITTLE too pigmented and dark for my skin tone. Chocolate Cherries on a certain skin tone will look amazing but on me it was very, very dark and vampy. The color also proved a little difficult to apply evenly! I keep going outside my lip line during application.

The other three shades are all part of the Too Faced Melted Metal Liquified Lipstick family. You might have already read my review of the Too Faced Melted Metal Liquified Lipstick and in that case you know I’m not a fan but I decided I still wanted to try these out in the hopes they would change my mind.

You have to realized the Melted Metal formula is not the same as the original Liquified Lipstick formula or at least I think so. The Metals are pretty thick but a lot thinner than the original formulation and have a good deal of chunky shimmer with a lot less pigment and a shorter wear of around three to four hours that leaves a layer of shimmer on lips well after color fades away. The color pay off isn’t as extreme on the Metals and it’s more about shimmer versus a ton of color. On my lips they tend to look super frosty and shimmery versus metallic! They quite remind me of Milani Fierce Foil Brilliant Shine Lipgloss on many levels.

On my me they tend to gather into the natural lines in my lips and end up looking very patchy and dry. Applying primer prior or Chapstick might help a little bit but they still manage to creep into natural lip lines. Metallic Chocolate Diamonds is likely the worst offender in this group as it has a good deal of chunky, frost shimmer where as Metallic Candy Bar and Metallic Frozen Hot Chocolate were a LITTLE better.

Sadly, none of the three shades worked for me. Some applied taupe others applied with a duochrome chocolate finish, it was just a lot of shades that I think many folks might find difficult to pull off in daily looks.

Like I said above, I want to tell you how great these were but sadly aside from Chocolate Milkshake I felt like they all disappointed me. I think the worst of the batch were the Metallic shades though or at least for me. Likely the most disappointing aspect here is the fact that the shades are just difficult to wear or at least they proved unwearable for me. Perhaps some of you might have better results but all in all this was a disappointing release for me.

Next year, I’m hoping they do something chocolate strawberry inspired because I can definitely go with some brown based dusky roses and pinks! Those would work for me 🙂

    Sorry Muse. . If they don’t work for you they won’t work for me since I’m lighter than you. Thanks for pointing out the difference. I may not have noticed. I don’t want a metallic lip. No thanks. . They sound awful.

    • Isabella Muse

      I didn’t like them 🙁 the metals have never been a friend of mine but I had hopes the chocolate shades would make a difference in the formula and make it more wearable, not so much :*(

  • The Silver Nail

    Wow, I wanted to like these too, but between your review/swatches and other reviews, no way. Too bad. 🙁

  • Janessa

    These just didn’t tickle my fancy when I saw that they were coming out. I love the original Melted’s (but have never tried the metals, I just can’t do frost/metallic lipstick). The only one I was thinking of swinging for was Chocolate Cherries, but I think you’re right, it’s a little too dark and vampy for me.

    However, I really like the Chocolate Honey on you. Maybe a nude shimmery gloss over and it will work more to your liking?

    • Isabella Muse

      that could work Janessa for sure! These are workable with even clear gloss on top! But on their own not so much 🙁

  • Heidi

    Ugh. I’ve never warmed to metals except for one Lipstick Queen metallic shade (Wine Metal) and one metallic red I found online.
    I so want to love this, too, because it’s Too Faced and chocolate, but the nudes are too beige and brown for my tastes. And that dark one is just a bit too brown for me to feel comfortable with. But it would be awesome for darker skin tones!

    • Isabella Muse

      I think these would rock on darker skin tones but on me they look horrible 🙁

  • Dee

    With the exception of Chocolate Cherries,,,, imo these colors would be better as cream eye shadows. lol.

  • Renu

    Much as I love chocolate and wanted Chocolate Honey at first, I am too yellow/olive to pull off any of these properly. Thanks for the swatches and honest thoughts!

  • evilyn1983

    Sad they didn’t work for you. I have all but 2 of the Melted collection, excluding the metallics. I just can’t get behind any of the metallic shades! I have the 3 melted chocolates on their way to me, but I steered clear of the metallic chocolates.

    • Isabella Muse

      Excellent call evilyn! the metallics were the biggest disappointment for me :-/ Let me know how you do when yours arrive!

  • Shae Barry

    I actually think these look nice on you! (But then there are few lip colours that I don’t like.) I agree that Chocolate Cherries is quite dark and vampy, so I can see how that would be difficult to apply. I would probably get all of these myself (after looking at them in person to be sure), but I would definitely do a really nice, rich brown eye look to go with these. I think that most of the shades would be harder for lighter-skinned girls to pull off with nude or natural eyes!

    • Isabella Muse

      Thanks Shae! I’m not so sure myself! I agree, a richer smoky brown eye would look fab with some of these shades!

  • Karin

    Frozen hot chocolate and melted candy bar look pretty good on you. Maybe change the blush out? Have you tried Girlactik matte lip paints? I love them!

    • Isabella Muse

      Thanks Karin! Agreed, a softer blush might make them look better! Haven’t yet! On my list though 🙂 thanks for the rec!

  • Katherine T.

    I’m with you Muse, Nude and Peach shades tend to look terrible on me, makes me look sallow and sick. But I like the other colors and will definitely be getting one . I have enough dupes for Chocolate Cherries, so eyeing Frozen Hot Chocolate or Candy Bar

  • kellly

    I think these colors look really nice on you, but I know it’s a personal thing. Sometimes I put something on and it seems yuck to me and I wipe it off, even tho it might look perfectly ok to someone else. But I do think they look really pretty on you, even the Metallic Chocolate Diamonds looks great on you even if it is something you don’t particularly like.

    • Isabella Muse

      aw thanks kellly! I hear ya! That’s true! Sometimes you feel it looks awful but people will tell you how great they think it looks and it surprises you 😀 so thanks xoxoxo!

  • Laura

    Anything brown-tone never works on my skin, so I knew these would be a pass for me. But, I just wanted to pop in and say I LOVE your necklace!! I think someone is excited for the new Star Wars movie, huh ? 🙂

  • melissa

    I am queen of this “looks awful on me” and someone else says “that looks great on you”. So while I think they look pretty on you, if YOU don’t feel they are pretty, then don’t go there. I’m pretty fair skin right now but I might try a couple my self and see how I feel. For some reason I want to love the melted formula and yet I never do. Makeup lover drama LOL.

    • Isabella Muse

      I agree! Even if others say it looks nice, If I’m not comfortable in it, I’ll likely not wear it 🙂 lol! I understand! It’s that love/hate relationship!

  • Aymee Crone

    I don’t know what you’re talking about, I personally think these look great on you! Just found your site and I am in love!! Thank you for what you do!

    • Isabella Muse

      Aw thank you Aymee! You are TOO kind! 🙂 And welcome! It’s great to “meet” you! Hope to hear more from you 🙂 xoxoxoxo!

  • Ally

    I love how the Metallic ones look on you! I might just get Metallic Chocolate Diamonds and use it as a topper on other lipsticks. Also I must know where did you get your necklace from?!

    • Isabella Muse

      Thanks ally! I’m still not sure about these 🙂 Oh thanks! It was a gift, no idea where they got it from!?

  • Kristen

    I was really excited about these too! I purchased Chocolate Milkshake from Sephora but ended up returning it because it literally looked like baby poop on my lips. I’m very fair, and these are NOT friendly to lighter skin tones. However, I have seen them online on dark skin tones and they look gorgeous! So sad these are not for me! 🙁

  • Megan Johnson

    Did your chocolate diamond look like a whole bunch of silver glitter? I couldn’t even tell if mine left any color since all I could see was glitter 🙁

  • Cecilia

    Well, maybe it’s not really your thing, but still gotta say you look fantastic in almost-black!

  • Krista

    Actually, I love these! They look really nice on you. The Chocolate Cherry is an especially pretty shade. I was looking for a similar shade this season. I think I will be purchasing.

  • Katherine

    Idk, I LOVE these with the exception of Candy Bar and Milkshake. I just find the colors ugly on me- Candy Bar reminds me of glittery diluted brat mustard, and on my paper-white skin, Milkshake brings out all the pink splotches I have. Also washes me out- but since you are darker than me, Milkshake looks awesome on you.

    The formula of the non-metallic shades is heaven for me, and Chocolate Cherries is especially perfect for my goth-leaning aesthetic. Chocolate honey is my perfect brownish nude.

    I get why you dislike the Metallics- I’ve concluded they’re not meant to be worn alone. They’re just not pigmented enough. But when they are layered over a medium-to-dark brown cream lipstick, they are an absolute dream! I have a very dark brown Milani cream lipstick that looks so sexy with either Chocolate Diamonds or Frozen Hot Chocolate applied in the center. You seem to not be a fan of vampy looks, so maybe try a medium brown nude underneath. It might change your mind 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      haha now that I think about yeah, mustard with glitter is about right 😀 You’re right using them over a lipstick def makes them more wearable or with clear gloss, a little clear gloss and they pop!

  • Amastasia

    I like the chocolate cherries on you. I bought the chocolate honey, but it only last about 1-2 hour. 🙁
    Anyone has the same problem with me? How to make it last longer?

    • Isabella Muse

      thank you! You can try a lip primer, I got about three to four hours, so overall, they were short wearing!
