Hello, class! Today we’re just going to do a quick swatch session, so get excited! We are looking at two sets from Melt Cosmetics. In case you haven’t played with this brand, Melt has these really cool metallic pans that are stackable. They have pre-made eyeshadow sets, and also individual pans, available. The two stacks that called to me were the Gun Metal Stack and the Dark Matter Stack.
The Dark Matter Stack has four shades. Melt Cosmetics describes them as:
BLURR- a soft beautiful blending/eraser shadow
UNSEEN- a cool-medium delicious caramel brown
ENIGMA- a beautiful red-brown
DARK MATTER- the most pigmented pitch-black
These form a beautifully warm stack that can be used alone or in conjunction with other shadows.
As you can see, the gorgeous shades don’t swatch very well. However, I’ve found that they apply beautifully on the face.
The Gun Metal Stack also features four shades. Melt Cosmetics describes them as:
HARSH STONE WHITE – A glittery champagne white. The softness, the glide , the pigmentation, is out of this world!
ASSIMILATE – The perfect deep taupe to pair with this glittery stack , it reminds us of delicious hot cocoa! Beautiful in this palette as a transition or “blending color” the color and is as rich and smooth as our other ultra matte shades in our line.
INDUSTRIAL – A glittery grey brown. We love pairing this metallic shadow with our Rust red staple colors. Perfect for any smoked eye look!
GUN METAL- This gorgeous blue black – metallic shadow is ultra pigmented and soft. We’ve never made something this gorgeous and glittery
This is the perfect cool smokey palette.
As you can see, these shades are richly pigmented. Industrial and Gun Metal do have a bit of fallout, so it’s important to do your eyes first or use some sort of guard for the rest of your makeup!
Have you tried any of the Melt Cosmetics stacks? Please tell us!
