For me, the metric of a good lipstick is how often you reach for it, no matter how many other options you have. I actually purchased this while I was in Washington D.C. in February and have not reviewed it until now, despite the fact that I wear it basically weekly. In short: I love that it is an easy to wear true red. Want the long story, and swatches? Keep reading! (Also #sorrynotsorry for sharing red lips two days in a row. LOVE red lips in the summer :*)
Too Faced's Melted Lipsticks have a unique felt applicator that evenly distributed the product over the rather large nozzle. It only takes a gentle squeeze to get enough product. At first I found this applicator to be difficult and messy to use, but after working with it a few times I was able to figure it out. Now, I love how effortless it is to use, and how cleanly it distributes the product!
Melted Strawberry is a blue-based true red with a moisturizing, slightly luminous, satin finish.
Too Faced's Melted Lipsticks retail for $25 CAD and come in a whole range of colours from nudes to brights to deep berry shades with both regular and metallic finishes.
I know I've posted about red lips two days in a row, but something about it just feels so summery to me! (PS-- also wearing Champagne Pop here!)
In the summer i love to wear a white blouse with simple make-up on my face and a nice bright red lip. Perfect for work, and for dinner and drinks after!
P.S. This formula? Not drying at all! I find it lasts almost all day and fades gently, sidestepping "popsicle" lips.

Normally I prefer orange-based reds, but I find this blue-based red to be very flattering on my hyper pale complexion. I love the contrast between how bright the lipstick is and how pale my face is, though I prefer to warm it up with some bronzer. I feel effortless and pretty when I wear this, and it is really hard to quantify that. I have no regrets to adding this beauty to my collection, after all, a girl can never have too any red lipsticks!
