This review features the other three shades of Melt Cosmetics Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.16 oz.) that I purchased. You can see the first three here as well as get a more in-depth review of the formula. To summarize, the issue with these is really the consistency is quite dry, which means the lipstick tugs and drags on the lips as you apply it. They are somewhat drying on me, though they aren’t as drying as you might expect given their texture. The lighter shades tend to “crack” over time and gather into lip lines as they wear down, though the formula wears quite long in general but will leave a strong stain behind. Removal is somewhat challenging, and I’d recommend busting out your industrial-strength remover and several cotton pads. The formula has a sweet, vanilla scent that almost gets tropical-like, but it can smell and taste like play-doh at times.

Melt Cosmetics Space Cake Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a bluish-gray with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage. This was actually the creamiest and easiest to apply shade out of the six I bought, though I wouldn’t describe it as creamy–it is still a stiffer, drier matte texture that will pull and drag during application, just less so compared to the other shades. It lasted for eight hours and left behind a stain–caution, the stain looks a bit like a bruise. It was somewhat dry while worn. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Butch (P, $18.00) was the closest I could think of, but it is lighter and bluer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Melt Cosmetics Stupid Love Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a bright, neon magenta fuchsia with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had full, opaque color payoff. The texture was somewhat dry and stiff, so it pulled at the lip and dragged as it applied. Once on, it was able to look even and smooth in terms of color coverage, and the color lasted for eight hours and left behind a strong, fuchsia stain. It was drying over time, unfortunately. Sephora + Pantone Universe Radiant Rush (LE, $18.00) is darker. Bite Beauty Moscato (P, $28.00) is less blue-based. Bite Beauty Satsuma (LE, $24.00) is more muted. MAC Candy Yum Yum (P, $16.00) is less magenta, slightly darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Melt Cosmetics Summer! Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light, peachy-orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. I had to apply this one on four separate occasions to get it to apply decently on my lips, because it just dragged so badly. It seemed to get slightly less dry as it wore down, but it was a challenge to apply from the tube. This shade lasts about six hours on me but looks horrible after three hours–it cracks, settles and pulls into lip lines, and just looks so, so dry and my lips felt somewhat dry after wearing this. Too Faced Melted Coral (P, $21.00) is darker. NARS Torres del Paine (LE, $25.00) is slightly darker, more muted. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
