Enough already with the matte. Well, okay, not really, but Too faced has launched something COMPLETELY different for this AW season – their Melted Latex Liquified High Shine Lipstick.
And this stuff shines! Being a matte fan before everyone was a matte fan, I was not really looking forward to trying these out. I was being stubborn. But…I love them. Let’s get this straight from the start – they’re NOT like 1990s or early Noughties lip glosses that were shiny, and sticky, impractical, and everything stuck to them. Things have moved on, lip colour fans, thankfully.
As much as I loved MAC’s Pink poodle lip glass, it was just a pain in the proverbial to wear. These are shiny – but they’re not glosses – if that makes sense?
They’re liquid lipsticks – they’re quite thick, and they have a great shine, but it’s not that glossy shine of the 1980s either. It’s a subtle shine – and it makes a nice change from the matte. They also come in some excellent colours – 16 of them in total, including one called Unicorn’s Tears – which I have not tried.
I’ve tried a fair few others, and they’re not all for me – I won’t be rocking Twilight Zone – a putrid purple – any time soon, but you may love it. I predict pink Peekaboo to be a top-seller, and I, predictably, would like a red. I don’t actually have a red to try though, which is a shame.
Super shiny Melted Latex from Too Faced launches tomorrow. (Aug 1, Debenhams) in 16 fab shades. Here are some. It’s a high shine lipstick – perfect antidote to the matte trend. . . #lips #liptrend #lipstick #lip #meltedlatex #toofaced #beauty #beautyjourno #beautywriter #beautyblogger #bblogger #beaute #maquillage #makeupfan #shinylips #highshinelipstick
