Too Faced Deluxe La Creme Lipstick in Unicorn Tears
The Too Faced Lipstick in Unicorn Tears is a halographic, reflective traditional stick lipstick that has became one of Too Faced Cosmetic's most popular lipstick shades to date. Unicorn Tears has a thin, even, light and creamy consistency that feels tacky and sticky to the touch. It does not have a matte finish so doesn't dry down and will transfer, and I would say the finish is creamy and not satin because it does stay quite wet on the lips.
Unicorn Tears is an extremely unique shade. It has blue and purple reflects mixed throughout, and it's hard to describe what colour is present in higher levels (or if the purple and blue is even) because it's so reflective and beautiful and every time you look at it from a different angle, you get different tones.
To me, I think it may be a sheer layer of purple that sits underneath, and then there are beautiful specks of light blue reflects dispersed throughout this sheer purple pigment. Either way, both the purple and blue colours are extremely bright and pigmented, and quite frankly, just absolutely stunning. I have also noticed that there seems to be a pink tint that sits at the base of the shade underneath the purple and blue, so Unicorn Tears is full of different colours and tones and depending on the light, you see these colors in different proportions.
Although it does look like there is glitter particles in the lipstick, there actually isn't or if there is, it is highly packed into the formula so much so that there is literally no sandy or glittery feeling to it, which is good because I can't really stand noticeable glitter particles in lipstick's, it's just uncomfortable. In regards to how the lipstick feels, it doesn't fully dry so it is slightly uncomfortable but it's nothing horrible.
All in all, I think the Unicorn Tears Lipstick is absolutely stunning. It has so many beautiful, reflective colours and is one of a kind, that's for sure. Although it is absolutely stunning, I am unsure how much use I will get out of this shade. I love it so much, but I don't think it's something for an everyday occasion. Another thing is that because it is so reflective, it can be hard to see the colourful glitter reflects in dim or dull lighting, so when people look at you in this lighting, I'm not sure that they will always be able to see the magic!!

Too Faced Melted Latex Liquid Lipstick in Unicorn Tears
The Too Faced Melted Latex Liquid Lipstick in Unicorn Tears is a gloss that was created to go with the Unicorn Tears Lipstick (above) after it became an instant hint when it was released ages ago.
The formula of the Unicorn Tears Melted Liquified Latex is the same as the shades in the permanent Liquified range, except it is more glittery and more reflective than the other shades. It is also unique from the others because it really is a cross between a gloss and a lip-topper. It has fine particles of reflective, colourful glitter dispersed throughout a thick, sheer layer of light blue/clear pigment, meaning it can be worn alone on the lips or applied over the top of other liquid lipstick's to give a glittery, glossy and reflective finish. Here is a swatch picture so you can better see what I mean here....
While all of the shades in the Melted Liquified range can be layered on top of liquid lipstick's to give them a glossy finish, they are composed fully of pigment and have no glitter or reflective particles in them, so they don't work as good as a lip topper as Unicorn Tears does.
As I said, the consistency of the Unicorn Tears gloss is very thick and sticky and you can deffo feel it on the lips, although it's not uncomfortable, it's not exactly comfortable either. I do find that it can get very messy because it slips around and transfers everywhere, and it can really be a bit of a pain at times. I honestly couldn't wear a product like this on my lips for an extended period of time, it's just too uncomfortable and messy. While trying it on over the top of other liquid lipstick's, I just couldn't really wait to get it off because it feels so sticky and annoying.
However, you can use different methods to make it feel less annoying. For example, instead of rubbing it right into the lip colour, you can dab it on certain places so it doesn't fully mix with the pigment and acts as a kind of highlight. Wearing it all over looks pretty, but feels horrible.
Other than the lips, I tried to find other ways to use this and I did apply it all over the lid to act as a base. It did the job and looked good but the thick consistency means that it creased a whole lot on the lid, so I don't really think it's a very good option when it comes to using it as eye gloss, but it's certainly do-able.
All in all, I do like the Unicorn Tears Melted Latex and as you will see below, there is no denying it looks beautiful over lip products, and even on it's own. However, it's just so uncomfortable and isn't really practical outside of photography.. I just couldn't wear this out without being paranoid it would end up all over my face. This is not just with this formula, all lip toppers are extremely uncomfortable in my opinion and I would never wear them outside of taking photos lol!! However, there is no denying the product is beautiful, the glitter particles are so reflective and colourful and the packaging is to die for.

My Overall Thoughts on the Unicorn Survival Kit Lip Products
All in all, I am happy with the lip products in the Unicorn Survival Kit, they look stunning on the lips and are extremely unique, halographic and reflective. Both the Melted Latex and the Lipstick are multi-coloured with blue, purple and pink dispersed throughout sheer pigment. They are both easy to apply and come in the most beautiful, mini packaging.
In saying this, they are not something I would be wearing everyday. The lipstick doesn't exactly excite me enough to wear it constantly, and the latex is a bit uncomfortable, clumpy and sticky. However, I think this is the absolute PERFECT gift for someone. The product is high quality, and the packaging is just to die for!
