January 2016, I went to Generation Beauty LA. I got a bunch of products either from the brands or in my goody bags.
Here are the items I got. I already reviewed Laneige BB Cushion in Light (top middle), and Pixi in Wakeup Wisteria nail polish (bottom right). For this post, I will review the lip product from Too Faced in the bottom middle.

Thoughts: I've always been intrigued of Too Faced Melted lip products. In all honesty, I actually own one but I haven't tried it yet. It's still in the box. I have so much products that I don't know where to start. That's a whole different story.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it does smell like chocolate. It can be overbearing if you are sensitive with smell. I actually don't mind and it doesn't bother me. Now that I'm so used to the smell, I hardly even notice while applying. Secondly going back to packaging, it is convenient. It's extremely easy to use. All you have to do is squeeze and get product on the velvet tip then apply. With that said, I don't know if it's the most sanitary safe product. The product will build up on the velvet tip with time. I don't know if some people want to re-use it. It's all personal taste. I'm sure you can clean it with makeup remover wipes. It's also travel-friendly. Third, it had a creamy consistency. It goes on smoothly and does not tug on the lips. It's also pigmented. I wouldn't say extremely opaque but you don't have to layer multiple times to get color on the lips. Lastly, it lasted until I ate/drank. I wouldn't say it's long wearing as they claim, but it's decent. It's also definitely not drying. I didn't notice any white residue in the center of the lips, as well as, tightness with over time. This is a good thing especially since I have really dry lips.
