Melt Cosmetics Buzz Kill Digital Dust Duo Blush Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Buzz Kill Melt Cosmetics Buzz Kill Digital Dust Duo Blush ($39.00 for 0.24 oz.) includes two blushes: a luminous, pinky-coral and a luminous, lighter, peachy-orange with faint sparkle. If you’re someone who immediately worries if something is too “glittery” as a cheek product, I’d skip this duo and consider one of the other options. Otherwise, both shades were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. We hope you’ll consider supporting Temptalia by shopping through our links below. Thanks! Buzz Buzz is a medium,…

Melt Cosmetics She’s in Parties Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

She’s in Parties Melt Cosmetics She’s in Parties 8-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($48.00 for 0.58 oz.) is a new, likely-permanent palette that takes the brand’s original stack (which included four shades) and extends the color story with four new shades in a slim, rectangular palette form. I felt like all of the original shades were improved here to some degree, and the additional shades were well done. They were pigmented, blendable, long-wearing, and it was an easy palette to work with.…

Melt Cosmetics Four Twenty Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Four Twenty Melt Cosmetics Four Twenty 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.66 oz.) is a new, 10-pan palette that features nine matte shades and one shimmer shade. The majority of the eyeshadows had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, but they were on the more powdery side, which resulted in light to moderate fallout. The two deepest matte shades took more effort to blend out, though they seemed workable to me. We hope you’ll consider supporting Temptalia by shopping through our links…

Melt Cosmetics Spliff & Wallflower Gel Liners Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Spliff Melt Cosmetics Spliff Gel Liner ($19.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a blackened brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, creamy consistency that was very fluid and lightweight without being too wet or slippery. The product adhered evenly without being prone to sheering out but also dried down quickly and stayed in place. It wore well for over 10 hours without fading or thinning noticeably. Urban Decay Rail (P, $20.00) is…

Best of Melt Cosmetics Modern Love Collection – Beauty Article

Melt Cosmetics Modern Love Collection is new-for-spring and featured an eyeshadow palette, two gel liners, and four glitter glosses. Unfortunately, the shimmery eyeshadows in the palette were inconsistent and harder to use, while the glosses didn’t seem to align well with how they were marketed for coverage but they also had issues with longevity and application. 01. 01.

Melt Cosmetics OK Boomer & Prissy Gel Liners Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

OK Boomer Melt Cosmetics OK Boomer Gel Liner ($19.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a bright, light-medium silver with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a very creamy, fluid consistency that was still thick enough to work well for thin, single-stroke kind of application. What I really enjoyed about this formula was that it worked as well for lining around the eyes as it did as a cream eyeshadow, which made it more versatile (and…

Melt Cosmetics Millennial Pinx Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Millennial Pinx Melt Cosmetics Millennial Pinx 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.66 oz.) is a new palette featuring a mix of shimmers and mattes. The mattes were decent performers, though not without some issues (Modern Love was one of the worst of the mattes), while the shimmers were underwhelming. Melt’s eyeshadow formula is one that I want to like but often find the quality to be all over the place, and inconsistency makes it hard to get excited about launches…

Melt Cosmetics Crushed Glitter Lip Glosses Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Sucker Melt Cosmetics Sucker Crushed Glitter Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.12 oz.) has a very sheer, milky base with flecks of small and larger pieces of opalescent glitter pieces. Of the four glosses, this one actually had more semi-sheer “coverage” from glitter and had better dispersion of that glitter, so it covered more evenly and was somewhat visible in person. The larger, “irregular” shaped glitter didn’t always lay flat (as they were large, flat pieces over a curved area) and…

Best of Melt Cosmetics Amor Eterno Collection – Beauty Article

Melt Cosmetics Amor Eterno Collection launched yesterday (officially!), and here’s a roundup of all the reviews for the pieces in the collection. I wish I could say it was impressive across the board, but I ended up having a so-so experience with a lot of the shades. The highlighter performed beautifully (and was the, ahem, highlight! of the launch for me), and I think the gel eyeliners have a great texture but work even better as cream eyeshadows/bases. The liquid…

Melt Cosmetics Amor Eterno Gel Liners Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Inmortal Melt Cosmetics Inmortal Gel Liner ($19.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a deep black with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had a longer dry down time, so for those who want a more smudgeable product or something that has enough fluidity to work as both a gel eyeliner as well as a base product, this is definitely in that vein. The texture was moderately emollient, gel-like (lighter-weight than a true cream), and applied evenly. It had opaque color…

Melt Cosmetics Vida Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Vida Melt Cosmetics Vida 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.66 oz.) is a new palette that features two shimmer shades and eight mattes housed cardboard palette. Some shades were really nice, while other shades were harder to work with with Sarape being one of the worst eyeshadows I’ve ever used. Sarape was so firmly pressed into the pan yet dry as a bone, so it was difficult to pick up without scraping it off the surface of the pan (effectively…

Melt Cosmetics Amor Eterno Liquid Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Monarca Melt Cosmetics Monarca Liquid Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a bright, medium orange with warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation after it had dried down, which was a real surprise as it looked like an atrocity when initially applied. I pressed my lips together gently as it was drying down to try and even out the initial application, which was splotchy, and that actually seemed to work decently. The texture was extremely…

Melt Cosmetics Muerte Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Muerte Melt Cosmetics Muerte 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.66 oz.) is a new, seemingly permanent palette that features an assortment of hues from aqua to navy blue to burgundy across shimmers and mattes. This palette officially launches on November 29th! Two of the shimmers were total disappointments, while one was decent, but it’s hard for me to understand how the other two shimmer formulas made it through testing; like I have no idea what the benefit/reasoning would be behind…

Melt Cosmetics Iluminacion Digital Dust Highlight Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Iluminacion Melt Cosmetics Iluminacion Digital Dust Highlight ($39.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a sparkling, light-medium peach base with pink-topeach shifting sparkle and pearl. It had more of a transparent base but plenty of “coverage” in the form of very fine shimmer and larger sparkle and micro-sparkle. If you loathe even the hint of a glitter highlight, this might contain too-large particles, but the resulting effect is very shiny and wet-like; it never looked like random glittery bits! The consistency was…

Melt Cosmetics Gamma Ray Blushlight (Trio) Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Gammy Ray Melt Cosmetics Gammy Ray Blushlight (Trio) ($22.00 for 0.28 oz.) is one of those products that is supposed to work well on eyes and cheeks, but it doesn’t work well on either. The texture was too heavy, silicone-heavy, and firmly-pressed in the pan, so what product came off the pan was clumpy and thick, which resulted in emphasizing texture on my skin, whether lids or cheeks. It also made the product harder to diffuse and spread across the…

Melt Cosmetics Radioactive Pressed Pigment Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Radioactive Melt Cosmetics Radioactive 8-Pan Pressed Pigment Palette ($48.00 for 0.66 oz.) is the newest palette from the brand, which seems like a replacement from the Radioactive Stack, which shares the first four shades (on the left), while the last four shades (on the right) are new. At a glance, it looks like a fun palette, and I love working with color, but I was left disappointed by this palette. A few of the shades were under-pigmented, while others were…

Melt Cosmetics Ultraviolet Blushlight (Trio) Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Ultraviolet Melt Cosmetics Ultraviolet Blushlight (Trio) ($22.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a jumbo-sized blush compact that contains a pan that’s been split into three distinctive shades. The brand says that it can be used “on face and around eyes as desired” (I wonder if “around” is code for “not for the immediate eye area,” though). As a blush formula, the heavy, denser, and thicker consistency made it difficult to pick up product, left them often looking thick and textured on…

Melt Cosmetics Honey Thief Blush Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Honey Thief Melt Cosmetics Honey Thief Blush ($22.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with strong,w arm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, though it was powdery to the point where it sheered out a bit when applied and blended out initially. It was pigmented enough that I wouldn’t describe the formula as buildable, which was how it was supposed to be. The texture felt finely-milled and silky, despite the powderiness,…

Melt Cosmetic Cali Dream Blush Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Cali Dream Melt Cosmetics Cali Dream Blush ($22.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a pop of medium orange with warm undertones that leaned slightly pinker but still more orange than coral. The texture was soft, smooth, and finely-milled so that it felt quite silky to the touch, but it was moderately powdery in the pan and was easy to over-apply as a result. It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, though it was marketed as buildable, so that was a…

Melt Cosmetics Genesis Digital Dust Highlight Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Genesis Melt Cosmetics Genesis Digital Dust Highlight ($39.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium-dark, pink-coral with warm, golden shimmer throughout. It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, though the firmer, denser consistency made it easier to use a lighter hand with it to achieve more buildable coverage if preferred. The powder was firm without being stiff, so I could pick it up with a brush, apply and blend out the color easily. The finish was luminous but didn’t emphasize…

Melt Cosmetics Morning Star Digital Dust Highlight Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Morning Star Melt Cosmetics Morning Star Digital Dust Highlight ($39.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a bright, pale gold with warmer undertones and pink and gold micro-sparkle over a metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was easily blended out for sheerer coverage or applied with a lighter hand (or more feathery brush) for more buildable coverage. It had a moderate glow in one layer, and it built up to more metallic, lit-from-space kind of glow with…

Best & Worst of Melt Cosmetics Blushlights – Beauty Article

Melt Cosmetics Blushlight ($22.00 for 0.13 oz.) is supposed to be buildable and can be worn alone or layered with other blushes. I’d consider it a more pigmented blush formula; a few shades are soft and yielding enough to be used with a lighter hand or less-dense brush for sheerer, more buildable application, but most shades were semi-opaque to opaque in one layer. The texture ranged from smooth, lightly creamy to soft and slightly powdery (though finely-milled and silky to…

Melt Cosmetics Shadowplay Blushlight Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Shadowplay Melt Cosmetics Shadowplay Blushlight ($22.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a pale, just barely warm-toned white base with a minty green sheen that shifted subtly between gold-green and true mint green. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was the “downside” as the formula is supposed to be buildable–the texture was soft and forgiving enough that it could be applied with a lighter hand and less-dense brush (true of many pigmented formulas, though) that more gradual application was,…

Melt Cosmetics Nevermore Blushlight Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Nevermore Melt Cosmetics Nevermore Blushlight ($22.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which I’m sure some will appreciate, but the formula is supposed to have buildable coverage. The texture was soft, silky, and finely-milled with a smoothness that was lightweight and thin but still applied easily to bare skin and blended out well. It could be applied more gradually if one uses…

Melt Cosmetics Lynx Blushlight Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Lynx Melt Cosmetics Lynx Blushlight ($22.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy brown with warm undertones and a golden shimmer throughout that gave it a luminous finish. The blush had a soft, smooth texture that was a smidgen powdery in the pan, but it was easy to apply and blended out nicely on my skin. The finish appeared a bit more frosted when initially swatched, but it blended out to a more luminous one on my cheeks–glowing but not…
