Review and Swatches: Too Faced Melted Kisses and Sweet Cheeks

Too Faced Melted Kisses Sweet Cheeks (3)The Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks and Love Flush Long Lasting 16-hour Blushes have been getting good reviews online. At US$21 and US$26 they are expensive for me, so I waited patiently until a travel set come around. It recently did, and at $36 for the set ($6 per item) it is very good value. This limited edition set is packaged for gifting, with individual boxes for each sub-set of coordinated blush and lipstick, so that might be an added convenience if you are giving these away.

There are 3 sub-sets of coordinated blush and lipstick: a peachy pink blush with a beige lipstick; a pink blush with a soft warm pink lipstick; and a maroon blush with a berry lip color. All the colors are in the permanent line, so you could get full sizes of these if you like them enough.

I really like all three blush colors in this set; they are easy to use and blend, relatively opaque, and have very good lasting power (at least 6 hours before fading, on my oily skin). Tarte’s 12-hour blushes still outperform these in the lasting power, but these are still very good. The pan is tiny – below I’ve given size comparisons – therefore very convenient to take with you daily for touch-ups, or to take during your travels.

The lipsticks I really, really like, especially the colors Peony and Fig – I might need to get full sizes of these! Nude, the beige brown lip color, is just not for me as it washes me out, but the quality is as good as the other two. I like the applicator (a squeeze tube with a sponge applicator attached), the texture, and the lasting power of these lipsticks. There is a noticeable scent, but it doesn’t bother me.

Bottom line, this is a beautiful, useful and fun set that I have no regret purchasing, and would recommend to anyone.
