Hey lovelies! It’s getting to that time of year when all the makeup companies start releasing their ‘holiday collections’ or Christmas gift sets. Some of you may think it’s way too early for me to be talking about Christmas on my blog but if you’re not fast these gift sets will sell out and you’ll be left feeling gutted that you missed out!
I’d been eyeing up this Too Faced gift set since it was released and then it sold out online and I was SO disappointed! Luckily when I went into my local Debenhams they had it in stock so I knew I had to get it before I missed out again. When I picked it up they had 10% off beauty so I got the set for £19.80 instead of £22 so I was super happy!
In this set there are 4 mini liquid lipsticks in Too Faced’s very popular ‘Melted Matte’ formula. You get 3ml of product in each lipstick and at £22 for the set the work out at £5.50 each so I think it’s really good value for money considering you only get 7ml of product in the normal Melted Mattes and they’re £19 each!
I have to be honest what enticed me to this gift set is the packaging, the lid on each liquid lipstick has pictures which match the names of the lipsticks e.g. the ‘Sugar Cookie’ one has cookies all over the lid and the ‘Pumpkin Spice’ one has pumpkins etc. I think they look so cute and Too Faced always go the extra mile to make their packaging stand out!
The four liquid lipsticks in the set are ‘Pumpkin Spice’, ‘Sugar Cookie’, ‘Cinnamon Bear’ and ‘Hot Buttered Rum’. The swatches included here are in that order from top to bottom.
Pumpkin Spice is a beautiful orange/brown toned lipstick that is absolutely perfect for autumn! I wasn’t sure if I’d like this colour but I’m wearing it in this picture and I actually really loved it!
Sugar Cookie is probably my favourite of all four shades because it’s the colour I’d usually go for, a pale pink nude toned lipstick always wins me over!
Cinnamon Bear is a gorgeous bright red which will be absolutely amazing for the festive season! I can guarantee I’ll be wearing it a lot over Christmas.
Hot Buttered Rum is a lovely brown toned nude, it’s not something I’d usually wear but I think it’s another one that will be perfect for autumn and I can’t wait to see what it looks like on!
Like all Too Faced products, each lipstick is also scented to match their name. The scent is strong without being overpowering but if you don’t like scented products this is something to note. In my opinion they all smell fabulous but again my favourite is definitely ‘Sugar Cookie’ as I love sweet scents!
I’ve never tried a Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick before so when I bought this set I had no idea what to expect the formula to be like and I have to admit I’m IN LOVE! The lipstick was really easy to apply, especially considering it was quite a dark shade I picked to wear first and they can sometimes get quite messy, this one didn’t at all!
As soon as I applied the product it dried down completely straight away, and the lipsticks are so pigmented that one dip into the tube covered all of my lips without needing a second coat! The lipstick did need to be reapplied after I’d eaten as I’d lost most of the product but this happens with most liquid lipsticks so it didn’t really bother me.
Although the product dried down straight away, I wore this lipstick all day and it was SO comfortable I couldn’t even tell I was wearing any product on my lips at all which is strange as I suffer terribly with dry lips and usually after half the day and I can feel my lips starting to get chapped.
Overall I absolutely loved the formula of this liquid lipstick and I’ll definitely try more of the ‘Melted Matte’ range from Too Faced in the future, they’re one of the most comfortable matte lipsticks I’ve ever tried!
In my opinion this set is amazing value for money and I’m so happy I picked it up, I don’t have any regrets at all! I’d definitely recommend adding this to your Christmas lists if you’re a liquid lipstick fan!
