Comparison: Too Faced Melted Lipsticks vs L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paints

Hi Ladies!
Today I am going to do a mini review and a comparison post on the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks and the L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paints. I have read that the Glazed Lip Paints could be possible dupes for the Melted Lipsticks so I decided to grab some and test them out.

This is a hot coral/pink with blue undertones.

This is a mauve/purple color.

The Melted lipsticks are insanely pigmented. They are super creamy and are very easy to apply. I love the felt tip applicator that the product comes out of. It makes it very easy to apply. These lipsticks apply wet and eventually dry with a matte finish. I do feel that they take a really long time to dry which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I did find that if my hair brushed against my lips, the color did transfer onto my face. That is one thing I didn't like about how long it took to dry. Also, if you eat while wearing this, make sure to check your lips after. The lipstick did transfer to my chin somehow one day while eating lunch lol. I didn't find them really drying on my lips but after eating and drinking, you do need to touch up the edges a bit. This has great wear time. I would say it lasts about 5-6 hours without touch up. If eating it will still last but will fade a bit. The lipstick does leave a stain on your lips afterward. Overall, this is an amazing product and I can't wait to pick up more colors!

This is a fuschia/pink.

This is a light purple/violet.

This is a mauve/purple color with a hint of pink.

I found these products at  Five Below for $3.00 each! They had all the original set of colors but I decided just to pick up these three. Right off the bat, I noticed that these lip paints were way more liquidy that the Melted lipsticks. They are on the watery side but are still very pigmented. They have a slight minty taste/smell to them. I felt that these lip paints were a little harder to get an even application with. I also had a hard time getting a clean and straight line on the edges of my lips. This could be because of the applicator. It is just a slanted plastic tip with a hole in the middle. The lip paints apply glossy and stay that way. They do not dry matte. The wear time is 3-4 hours. I had a bit of an issue with getting these glazes on my teeth as well. Once the paint touches your teeth, it gets all on them. I suggest doing the finger trick where you put your finger in your mouth and make an O with your lips while pulling your finger out. Sounds sexual but it is a good way to get rid of access lipstick/gloss to avoid getting it on your teeth :). Even though I had a few issues with these glazed lip paints, I still really liked them and think that they are worth the price. My favorite color of the 3 is Coy.

Here are swatches of all the lip products and colors above:
L-R: Melted Candy, Melted Fig, Blushing, Coy, and Bombshell

The verdict: I do not think that the L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paints are dupes for the Melted Lipsticks. Though they both have amazing pigmentation, they are very different in all other aspects.  In terms of colors, some of the shades may be very similar to one another. For example, the Melted Fig and Blushing. They are very similar colors. The Melted Violet and Coy may also be very similar. I have only tried the ones mentioned above so I can't say for sure. Regardless, I highly recommend both products but the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks are most definitely my favorite of the two!

Have you tried either of these products? What are your thoughts on them? Post your comments below!
