Thoughts: I kept hearing on YouTube people comparing this to Too Faced Melted and how this one is better. Since I own couple of Too Faced Melted and love the one I have tried, Too Faced Melted Chocolate in Chocolate Milkshake (haven't tried one yet), I had to grab one for comparison.
Borghese Eclissare Color Eclipse 5 Shades of Torrid on the eyes and MustaeV Cheeky Chic Blush in Odd Pink on the cheeks.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it has a slight scent while applying. It's only for a couple of seconds. I just sniffed the product and it smells sweet. It smells like a refreshing candy. Actually, the first thing that comes to mind is Hi-Chew. Secondly, it comes in a tube with a slanted sponge tip applicator just like Too Faced Melted. There's several differences between the applicators. I would have taken a picture of a comparison but I thought it's dirty to show used applicators. Maybelline is slightly smaller, as well as, more slanted. Maybelline also had a center hole, whereas, Too Faced doesn't. Honestly they're both easy to apply but with the small applicator of the Maybelline, it's more precise. If you're a clean freak and worry about bacteria, this might not be the most sanitary-safe product. I actually don't mind as long as I don't share. Third, the consistency is creamy. Since it's smooth, it glides on the lips. Also, the color is opaque. I'm not too sure about the other colors from this line but I noticed the pink, Never Bare, is slightly streaky. It could possibility just be my lips but I noticed that's the case with most light colors from most brands. For that reason, I'm kind of curious to try another color. I originally wanted Stripped Down but they're always tested. I double check before I purchase any products. Even though it's slight streaky, it's not noticeable unless you examine it. Most people won't notice. It goes on creamy, pigmented, semi-shiny, and best of all it's not sticky. The website mentions that it's shiny but it really isn't that shiny. Basically, it's lipstick in a tube just like Too Faced Melted. Fourth, the color is gorgeous. I forgot how much I used to like cool tone pinks. Plus, it's good all year around but I prefer it for spring/summer. Lastly, it lasted until I ate/drank. It could last longer but I always wipe my lips with napkins after I eat. It's a bad habit but I feel like I have food on my mouth. With that said, it did not dry out my lips. I did not see white residue in the center of the lips. If I have to compare it to Too Faced Melted, I do agree I like this slightly better. It has nothing to do with the price. You pay double for the Too Faced Melted but it's also double the size of Maybelline. I feel Maybelline is slightly more pigmented from the colors I have.
