It’s that time of year again! All the Christmas gift sets are finally starting to roll out and I’ve already made my very first purchase – for myself of course! Inspired by your favorite holiday scents, Too Faced has created a brand new mini gift set of melted mattes, incorporating iconic Christmas scents, such as cinnamon, pumpkin spice, buttered rum, and sugar cookies. The mini melted mattes are formulated with Volulip and hyaluronic filling spheres for an instant plumping, anti-aging, and smoothing effect. Too Faced have also infused the formulation with vitamin E and avocado oil to keep lips moisturised. How dreamy do these sound??
The first thing that I have to talk about is the packaging. The body of the liquid lipstick is the same as the original Melted Matte (glass bottle shaped like a tube but the caps are printed with tiny little festive designs. The liquid lipstick comes with a standard doe foot applicator which allows for a fairly precise application.
There are four colours in this set, all of which are SO wearable. The shades are:
- Pumpkin Spice: An orange based peachy nude with an opaque matte finish
- Sugar Cookie: Warm taupe with an opaque matte finish
- Cinnamon Bear: A bright maroon with an opaque matte finish
- Hot Buttered Rum: A warm peach based nude with an opaque matte finish
The liquid formulation applies like a dreamy cream and dries to a completely matte. It’s supposed to be transfer-proof too. True to it’s name, each of the liquid lipsticks also feature an irresistible scent. I don’t know how Too Faced does it, but I’m obsessed!
As soon as I opened up the packaging, I immediately fell for the pigmented colours and comfortable formula; one swipe provides the perfect coverage that does last for a significantly long time. Although like most liquid lipsticks, it does get a little drying after a while but nothing that a good lip salve cant sort out. I like that the lipstick is smudge proof however it isn’t entirely transfer proof. I do have some transfer to my mug of coffee and an oily lunch will definitely mean another coat will be required. It’s not a huge deal though as it does have great wear and looks stunning on.
I am very pleased to report that it doesn’t crumble either. My biggest surprise was actually the very reasonable price tag of just £22! Working out at just £5.50 each, these minis make for amazing stocking fillers!
Overall, this gift set is definitely going to be a real crowd pleaser. All of the colours are definitely my cup of tea and the smells make a huge difference from other makeup products that smell of paint or that weird manufactured cherry scent that all high street lipsticks smell of!
This is a gift set that I’m definitely recommending to all; pop these fun-sized shades into the stockings of friends and family (or your own!) for a truly sweet Christmas morning!
