Melt Cosmetics Swatches

Melt Cosmetics has been a favorite indie brand of mine for years. I’ve been buying from them for about 6 years at this point. I was thrilled to hear that they will now be available at Sephora. I wanted to share my Melt Cosmetics collection with you. I’ve purchased a ton of Melt over the past few years.

For those of you who don’t know, Melt Cosmetics is a Leaping Bunny Certified cruelty-free indie makeup brand. They also very clearly state which products are vegan or not vegan. Lora (from LA) & Dana (from Vegas) are two talented makeup and entertainment gals that got together and created Melt to make ultra-matte vibrant lipsticks.

All Melt Cosmetics products purchased by me because I enjoy flinging money at high-quality indie brands.

My Skintone

Since people always ask what my skintone is to determine how useful my swatches are, it’s very fair neutral to cool olive yellow. Current foundation matches for me are:

All of these brands claim that their foundations are vegan. All are cruelty-free.

Melt Smoke Sessions Palette

Melt Cosmetics Smoke Sessions Palette swatches on fair skin
Space Queen (hunter green matte), Blue Dream (mint pearl), Sweet Tooth (jade), Mean Green (emerald green), Sour Diesel (grey olive matte), Gravity OG (yellow gold), Grand Daddy (olive gold foil), Black Widow (olive shimmer)

The Melt Smoke Sessions palette is solely responsible for my green eyeshadow addiction. Here it is swatched above. It’s so freaking gorgeous! Smoke Sessions palette is 100% vegan. I love the buildable formula in this eyeshadow palette. It’s my current favorite eyeshadow formula, tied with Saucebox.

Melt Space Queen, Saucebox Meadow and Lime Crime Dragon eyeshadows

This is my Melt Space Queen look, created with Melt Smoke Sessions and Saucebox Secret Garden palettes. You can see how Space Queen just looks so good with teals!

Melt Gun Metal Stack

Melt Gun Metal Stack Swatches on Fair Skin
Gun Metal (blue black metallic), Industrial (glittery grey brown), Harsh Stone White (glittery champagne white), Assimilate (deep taupe)

I love the Gun Metal stack but it does have a TON of fall out! Still, that bottom right taupe matte shade, Assimilate, looks amazing on fair skin like mine. The Gun Metal Stack is vegan.

I created a Melt Gun Metal Stack Tutorial when it first came out.

Melt Haze Stack

Melt Haze Stack Swatches on Fair Skin
Indica (silver), Ganja (gold), Bogart (copper), Haze (red)

The Melt Haze Stack is a set of 4 pretty metallics. I love the silver in it but that’s all I’ve ever worn. The gold is gorgeous too. I feel like the copper is just kind of meh.

Melt Cosmetics Lip Products

Melt Cosmetics By Starlight, Shady Lady, 6six6, Belladonna, Bang Bang, Summer! Swatches Review

You can see one of my very first Melt Makeup Inspiration posts here. These are some of my Melt Cosmetics Swatches of lipsticks.

Melt Allday Everyday Lipliner Swatches on fair skin

I’ve reviewed a bunch of their lip products in the past, mainly lipsticks. It’s not my favorite lipstick formula (Urban Decay makes my favorite bullet lipstick formula, Marc Jacobs makes my favorite chubby lip crayon formula, and Black Moon makes my favorite liquid lipstick formula), so I’ve decluttered all but 2 lipsticks from Melt. I can’t find one of them – Chick Habit. I have the other one called Sequel (liquid lipstick, deep plum) in the Melt Cosmetics swatches above. Edit: Since then I’ve added a few more liquid lipsticks to my collection.

I really love the Melt Lip Pencils that I have! They’re so good! Swatched above are 1979 (royal purple), Santeria (blackened cherry), Handcuff (cool-toned grey), and Latex (hunter green).
