Hey everyone! My Black Friday purchases have slowly started to show up on my doorstep. I was going to save them all for one HUGE haul post, but I figured it would be better to split it up by brand!
This was my first time ordering from Melt Cosmetics. I’ve been lusting after their products for a while now, but for one reason or another, I never took the plunge. Their 30% off Black Friday discount was too good to pass up, though! I wanted basically everything, but I stuck to just picking two lipsticks: Spacecake and Catsuit.
Isn’t the packaging sleek? I love how modern it looks. Also, I am LOVING the little lipstick keychain they included with my order! It’s so adorable! I want to order more products just to get more of these cute keychains haha.
On to the products and swatches! Spacecake (left) is a beautiful blue-gray color, while Catsuit is a deep brown. Both lipsticks are very matte, which I love.
The formulas do differ slightly, though. Spacecake is a tiny bit creamier, so there’s less drag when applying it. However, it is slightly less opaque than Catsuit, so I had to pass it over my lips another time or two to really build the opacity up. It wears pretty comfortably, though it is a bit drying due to how matte it is. This is something I’m pretty much used to, given my love for liquid lipsticks, but exfoliating and moisturizing your lips prior to applying will definitely help.
Catsuit is very opaque. I only needed one or two passes to get full color. However, it drags more than Spacecake, so I have to take more care in applying to get even, smooth lines. The wear time is pretty great, though! I wore it through a steak dinner test and there was relatively minimal wear on the inner rim of my mouth. But that was nothing rubbing/patting my lips together couldn’t fix!
All in all, I am pretty impressed with Melt’s formula. It might not be for everyone, but since I love matte lips, these are right up my alley. I’m looking forward to trying more of their products in the future!
What do you guys think of Melt? Are there any products that I have to try? Let me know in the comments! ❤
