Hello, my beautiful friends. I have an exciting review for you guys. I recently purchased Melt Cosmetics, which costs permanent damaged on my credit card. No joke. Without further a due, let’s dig in to the review and swatches. 🙂
So, melt cosmetics is this indie cosmetic company with in my opinion one of the coolest concept. They sell eyeshadows and lipsticks for now. I have so many lipsticks, so I only get their eyeshadows and their eyeshadows cost 48 US Dollars for 4 pans. I KNOW. WTF. that’s so expensive. I know, they are! They have 2 stacks;
Here’s the first stack, it’s called the Dark Matter stack. Such a cool name. I know.
The second stack is called the Love Sick stack.
As you can see these stacks are magnetics, so it’s really great for travelling. Now, let’s check out the pigmentation of these babies.
Blurr is a matte cream shade with a slight peachy tone to it. It is described in their website as the transition shade for blending.
Unseen is a a beautiful beautiful matte caramel brown. It’s a cool tone caramel brown. Love this shade.
Enigma is a rusted matte red-brown.
Dark matter is a matte black. Nuff said. Matte black.
And here are all of them swatched on the back of my hand:
Can we just take a minute to appreciate those pigmentation? Okay, minute over, moving on to the next stack. The love sick stack.
Promiscuous is a purple with blue undertone shade.
This is my favorite one out of the bunch. I haven’t seen anything like it. It is a matte grey with blue undertone.
Amelie is a peachy gold shade. This is the only one out of the whole bunch that’s not a matte shade. In the website it’s described as a shade that you can put anywhere as a highlight. Cheeks, cupids bow, you name it.
Love sick is a matte burgundy shade. This one has more of a red undertone than the Enigma shade in the dark matter stack, that one is more rusted brown, this one is more red. So, warm tone maniacs, you would loooveee this shade.
Here are all of them on the back of my hand:
So like I said, for one stack (4 pans and a mirror) it’s 48 Dollars, so it’s 12 dollars each, you can’t but it separately though. But in retrospec, mac shadow is 1.5g and it costs 16 dollars. Makeup geek is 1.8g and it’s 6 dollars. With these shadows… Each of the pan is 3.57g . So bear in mind you do get a lot of product in one pan.
The formulation and the pigmentation is great. It blends seamlessly just like good eyeshadows should.
Another pro is that this company doesn’t test on animals and some of these shades are vegan. (dark matter, promiscuous, fixated and amelie)
Last question, should you buy this to add to your collection?
If you don’t mind to spend the money, then go for it. BUT, please don’t feel pressure whatsoever to get these shades. I love love these for the concept, I think the way that they stack is just so adorable, but if you want something pigmented, not tested on animals, affordable with great formula, and you’re only starting on makeup, my recommendation would still be Makeup geek shadows. 🙂
