Amor y Mariposas

Melt Cosmetics Amor y Mariposas 20-Pan Pressed Pigment Palette ($70.00 for 0.705 oz.) is a mega-sized palette that contains two rows of eyeshadows and two rows of pressed pigments (which contain pigments not approved for use on the eyes by the FDA). There are six shimmery shades with the remaining 14 shades being matte in finish.

The pigmentation and texture varied a lot from shade to shade; the mattes were generally on the thinner side, but several were powdery to the point of being sheerer and/or having fallout issues. The shimmers, on the whole, were more emollient and easier to work with than some of the brand’s past shimmer eyeshadows, but they were noticeably thicker/denser compared to the mattes, so layering wasn’t always foolproof.

Cielito Lindo

Cielito Lindo is a light, minty green with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage, but the texture was thicker and denser, which didn’t layer as well with the mattes in the palette that were on the thinner side. I also found it harder to pick up product evenly with a dry brush. It wore decently for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

Carino

Carino is a light green with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was very finely-milled and smooth to the touch, but it was thinner and quite powdery, so it had a tendency to sheer out from semi-opaque coverage to semi-sheer in practice with a fair amount of fallout. It started to show signs of fading after six and a half hours of wear.

Sentimientos

Sentimientos is a medium, grass green with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium pigmentation, which was somewhat buildable, but had to be applied over an eyeshadow primer to perform decently as it tended to sheer out, blend unevenly, and have fallout otherwise. It stayed on well for seven hours before fading visibly.

Michoacan

Michoacan is a rich, deeper teal with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was smooth, almost cream-like, but it wasn’t too dense, so it was easy to pick up with a dry brush and blended out well on bare skin. It had opaque color coverage that wore well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Guamuchil

Guamuchil is a medium-dark olive green with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff, which was hard to build up; it was more medium coverage when applied over a primer. The texture was soft but quite powdery, which resulted in fallout. It lasted for six and a half hours before fading a bit.

Nueva Vida

Nueva Vida is a deep red with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff with a moderately powdery texture that was prone to fallout and sheering out a bit when blended out, so I would recommend using it with a primer. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Charro

Charro is a blackened plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was drier and very powdery, which made it difficult to apply an even layer; there was a lot of fallout, and it did not build up beyond medium coverage–even over a primer. There were signs of fading present after seven hours of wear.

Nube

Nube is a medium-dark purple with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied unevenly to bare skin and was more difficult to blend out, so I would highly recommend applying it on top of a primer at a minimum. The texture was drier and thinner, though not as powdery as other shades. This shade lasted decently for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

Almohada

Almohada is a rich, eggplant purple with subtle, warm pink undertones and a matte finish. It was nearly opaque in pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery texture that felt slightly drier to the touch compared to other matte shades in the palette. It applied evenly and blended out without too much effort. This shade stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours and left a stain behind.

Sagrado

Sagrado is a light red with warmer undertones and a frosted finish. The consistency was more emollient, which is unusual for the brand’s shimmers, and this made it apply better with a fingertip than a brush as a brush sometimes resulted in a more uneven laydown of product. It had opaque color payoff that wore well for eight hours on me.

Ingredients

MICA, CALCIUM SODIUM BOROSILICATE, DIMETHICONE, DIISOSTEARYL MALATE, C20-24 ALKYL DIMETHICONE, ZINC STEARATE, DIMETHICONOL, PENTYLENE GLYCOL, GLYCERYL CAPRYLATE, GLYCERYL UNDECYLENATE, TIN OXIDE. MAY CONTAIN: TITANIUM DIOXIDE CI 77891, IRON OXIDES CI 77491, RED 6 CI 15850, RED 7 CI 15850.

Perla

Perla is a vivid red with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, blendable texture that was a touch powdery in the pan but not prone to fallout. It lasted well for nine hours before fading a bit and left a stain behind.

Well, if you have to have half of your palette be colors that aren’t technically “eye shadow”, I guess it’s nice to group them all together so it’s easy for consumers to remember which shades they might have to be more careful with.

That said, at $70, I’d really expect a better ratio of good shadows to duds. I think this launch has really solidified to me that Melt as a brand seems to be much more interested in *~vibes~* than product quality, which is really disappointing because they have some really great color concepts and the occasional product that knocks it out of the park (looking at you, Colibri liner).

Again, too bad it’s so inconsistent. Melt would be one of the most popular brands, if products actually were consistent. The concept and color story are excellent, but the execution, often not so much. It’s so easy to write Melt off, as you can’t depend on it. Sad that the most fun I had was not the palette, but looking up the English meaning of the shade names. Wow, what a non-endorsement.

Wow – an entire row of green shadows, a whole lot of red and orange and the bottom left “L” shaped corner all looks pretty much the same in the photo. I do love that shade Michoacan and regret not having your dupe of it (Jealousy’s Descent?).

Which are the 2 rows of shadows with pigments not approved for eye use? I seem to have missed which ones aren’t approved by the FDA but I’m curiouso to know….

I absolutely love… one shade. Would use two others. The rest I would try to emulate a Tempalia-look and do a beyond-disastrous job, possibly even after multiple requests for tips. But I hope everyone who would use this and look great in it enjoys it. To each their own!

Wow…Melt nails it again with a bad consistency-overpriced combination! I wish I was wrong, but I kind of guessed it. I am losing my trust and respect towards this brand, seriously. It feels like they are releasing products only for fun and do not care at all about feedback. This palette is so easily dupable, but still, they can take such risks for the sake of marketing and outer design. How many times will they keep doing this?

Look, I love Michoacan, but that’s it. The grungey greens I have in some other Melt palettes; the tans are lovely in my Vida palette. But this palette – this whole collection – isn’t for me. It isn’t what I want from Melt. Yeah, it touches on Lora’s Mexican heritage, but it’s not…edgey enough? It just looks so cheap to me. And like a teenage girl designed the look instead of two chicks who frequently go against the mainstream. I don’t regret not purchasing anything from this collection.
