Metallic Candy Bars

Liquid lipstick has taken over all the internets. It has taken over almost all makeup counters, and if you are anything like me, it has forced you to pick favorites. Me? I am cllllllll about liquid lipstick. The precise lip, the pigmentation, the lasting color. The triple threat to my heart lies within the perfect liquid lipstick.

Most recently, metallic liquid lipsticks have been playing with my emotions. I thought that it wasn’t exactly up my alley (though I love a lot of the Colour Pop ones) because I didn’t see any of them as colors I would wear daily. This is until I came across the Milani Amore Matte Metallic liquid lips. Those are the bees knees you guys.

But why discuss two brands that aren’t even what the stinking’ post is about? Well because this fascination with metallic liquid lips is what got me to try this sucker out. In my head I added the ‘matte’ behind the ‘Melted’ for this Too Faced Liquid Lipstick gloss and my imagination went from there. This was an impulse buy on Sephora paired with another metallic liquid lip. So maybe that also influenced what I thought/wanted this to be?I don’t know if this is one of those times where you can say reading is fundamental. I think the title ‘liquified metallic lipstick’ is a tad misleading. This baby is a gloss. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

It’s incredibly hard for me to actually capture the color in a photo. The shine kind of hides the shimmer/glitter, and either the shine or the shimmer make the color harder to read.

The color Metallic Candy Bar is a gorgeous milk chocolate-y color with some very fine gold flecks of glitter in it. This can totally be used as a nude gloss for a darker skin tone, and can work alone or over a lipstick/liner. Metallic liquid lipstick though – it is not.

Beautiful color – flattering on anyone
Smells like chocolate!
Squeeze tube

Cons:
Not a stinkin’ liquid lipstick
Not a fan of the sponge tip applicator (image source: Sephora)
Squeeze tube

I added in that the squeeze tube is both a pro and a con. The reason for the former is that this really helps to use the product as much as possible without wasting it. The latter? It’s a con because I am a bigger fan of having an actual applicator. Have you seen the L’Oreal Infallible Paints (post and review coming)? That would’ve made this better for sure. Ultimately, the moral of the story is to test and swatch in person as much as possible. Giving in to an online impulse shop will increase chances of shattered dreams. Maybe some online internet research would’ve been helpful too…
