I have to admit this is another product that I had bought because of the blogosphere hype!
Everyone had been raving about these beauties so I decided to pick one up myself to see what all the fuss was about.
Out of all the shades sold in the UK I decided Melted Violet would be my best bet as I’m a big fan of purples.
As you can see the tube comes with a slanted sponge tip applicator that helps immensely especially when it comes to tricky areas such as the cupids bow.
Consistency wise, I’m a big fan of the melted lipstick. Melted Violet is creamy but soft and not cloying, the product itself is buildable but for a more matte look I only went in with a thin layer.
One important factor for me when it comes to lip products is how it feels on my lips, or even more to the point, how it doesn’t feel. I do not like the sensation of a heavy product on my lips and Melted Violet understands this, it feels lightweight and comfortable, which is another winning feature for me!
Colour wise I was a little underwhelmed, foolishly I had only looked at swatches on fairer skin tones, which meant when it came to applying this colour I was taken aback by how light it looked on my skin tone. If you are of a fairer complexion you will benefit from more of a purple tone from Melted Violet, if you are my complexion or deeper you will end up with more of a pastel pink/purple, which means lip liner is a must.
Above I’ve teamed Melted Violet with Nightmoth lip liner by MAC Cosmetics.
All in all this is a good product but unfortunately not one of my favourites mostly due to the shade, texture wise this is great, shade wise, thumbs down.
