Swatch Saturday: Too Faced Melted Kisses

DSC00063

To address the elephant in the room…yes, that is pet hair on the scarf. Joys of huskies that shed EVERYWHERE before Winter.

Back on topic, I’m sure that some of you have already seen this cute little holiday/gift set floating around on blog sites and youtube. With good reason, it’s adorable. I only own one of the Melted lipsticks myself (because they’re $21 each) but I LOVE it, so when I saw that this set of 4 minis was coming out for $25 I knew it was on my list of holidays sets that I “absolutely need to own.”
First off, the packaging is so cute, as is most things that Too Faced makes. However, my box was kind of damaged when I got it 😦 I ordered mine from HSN because I was able to use a 20% off coupon and get free shipping, and I’m guessing the box was squished a bit along the way. The actual products were not damaged, and I do intend to keep this set, so all is okay in the world for now.
There are 4 deluxe “travel” sized products that come in this set. Melted Nude, Melted Peony, Melted Fuchsia, and Melted Berry.

Overall, I am happy with all of these shades. I find that the Melted Lipstick line from Too Faced is amazing. Very creamy, yet matte, and long lasting. That’s judging by the color that I already own in Melted Fig, which I wear fairly often. The only colors that I do not see myself using often are nude and fuchsia, but brown nudes tend to look odd against my pale complexion, and pinks are generally not my thing. I do like Melted Peony, though. It’s a very subtle pink that I think would pair amazingly with a darker nude lip liner.

This set is cute and affordable and is could be a “I’m beautiful and deserve it” gift, or can be used several ways as a Christmas gift to beauty lovers that you may know. You could give the whole set to someone, or purchase this set and other sets and create amazing goodie bags for people. I may end up purchasing another and making several gifts out of them, or I may pass on the nude and fuschia shades to my mom. πŸ™‚ I know this set was on Sephora, I’m pretty sure I also saw it on Ulta (if you want rewards points) as well as on HSN with free shipping and probably on the Too Faced site if it hasn’t sold out yet. I do recall looking on Sephora last week and seeing it sold out, so I’m not sure if it’s still sold out on their website or not. It is a pretty popular holiday set right now along with their Everything Nice palette, so I would say if you want it…get it. Toofaced.com is actually having their friends and family sale and everything is 20% off when you use a code! Oh, and it’s on beauty.com as well!
What are some holiday sets that you are looking at this season? Any recommendations for me to look at?

  1. I think I need these in my life. How do they feel on the lips? Do they lean more gloss or more lipstick?

    Are they similar to the NYX lip creams?

    Great post!

  2. LOL nice elephant. No worries. I have a German Shepherd and a Lab and both shed like crazy too. I think this will be a great gift for my sister. Great review!
