Beauty Blast: Melt Cosmetics

Melt Cosmetics burst onto the indie makeup scene three years ago and immediately established a loyal following of fans, myself included. Melt is known for its “ultra-matte, bold, radioactive” line of lipsticks that make a statement with cleverly named options ranging from the gorgeous deep red “Dark Room” to vibrant shades like the turquoise hue “Blitzed” and every other hue you can imagine.

Melt founders Lora Arellano and Dana Bomar, both with backgrounds as makeup artists, are committed to producing high quality makeup and recently expanded Melt’s lineup to include two stunning eyeshadow palettes. The “Lovesick” and “Dark Matter” shadow stacks feature colors that range from earthtones to bold accents like a beautiful violet-blue. They're versatile, blend smoothly, and wear consistently all day long which is perfect for a low-maintenance makeup wearer like me. The innovative packaging sets them apart, too: each shadow in the stack is an individual magnetic piece so you can mix and match and carry the whole stack or just one or two colors with you. If you’re looking for a new shadow, Melt stacks have your eyelids covered.
