Simply Lippy Challenge Day 353 | Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquified Metallic Lipstick in Shade, Metallic Chocolate Diamonds

Given the time of year, and the fact that I’m totally obsessed with all things Christmas, this week as you may have seen, I’ve been trying out a good few metallic lippies. You may also know that I’ve a love/hate relationship with metallics, and this shade today is the perfect example of why.

Of all the Too Faced products I’ve tried, I’ve never come across one I really don’t like, until today. Given their lip products are usually so gorgeous, I had high hopes for this but was completely let down.

Now maybe I just was expecting something different, but to me, this is not a metallic lip but a glitter lip. There are hundreds of glitter particles in the formula, so much so, I may as well have just poured a tub of glitter all of my face.

While I love a subtle glow or shimmer as much as the next person, I’m really not a glitter fan so the minute I applied this, I knew I wasn’t going to like it.

The formula itself is fine but you can feel the graininess of the glitter so the texture isn’t smooth at all. While there is a good bronze pigment, I couldn’t get past the sparkle on my lips to try find any other real positives with it.

If you’re a glitter fan, then I think you’ll love it because once applied, it’s almost impossible to get the glitter off straight away! My lips were glittering all day long, even though I was happy not to reapply it after it started to wear off.

You win some, you lose some as the saying goes and today, I lost. This lipstick just isn’t for me!
