Ok, these are CUTE! I like Earth, Water, and Air the best. Fire is pretty, but I don’t wear those colors often and it isn’t in my chart so I can pass easily. I don’t know that I need all three of the others, so depending on how they look in real swatches I might be able to narrow it down to just one or two of the palettes. I think Air is my favorite combination of colors and I don’t feel like we see too many peachy purple palettes so that may be the ultimate winner if I choose just one. Hopefully melt knocks this out of the park and the formula isn’t another flop.

This is “holiday”?! How celebratory.

Since I can’t wear orange or yellow, my choices are Water or Water. Not even cool lighter shades in Air, which would’ve been theme appropriate. Hard pass with residual irritation. smh

They are literally called “Bad Side” and have a tagline that says “Your weakness is also your greatest strength”???

As far as fitting a concept goes, the names are very apropos. It’s also on-brand for Melt to be somewhat “counterculture” and instead of the happy-sweet-saccharine palettes we usually get with holidays (think shades named “Joy,” “Peace,” “Goodwill to All,” etc. taken from holiday songs), this is something tongue-in-cheek for the cynics among us.

Definitely agree about the color schemes being pretty but predictable though!

I think one of the only redeeming aspects of astrology is that is has people look at themselves closely, critically as well as complementary as we all have positives and negatives in our personalities.

Any negative aspect of our personality could flip into a positive (or the opposite) for example being free-spirited could become flaky.

These are hilarious! I used to read these Darkside Zodiac books that were about the bad traits of each sign in dating, etc. Good fun and great color stories from Melt! My only gripe is I’m (Taurus) not an earthy color person and like the Air palette the most! But it’s my opposite so I don’t want it, which my Air sign sibling would take joy in haha.

I think Air could have leaned a little cooler to balance out the color stories (think taupe-mauve instead of berry-peach) and fit “air” as a theme better, but I don’t dislike the colors themselves together. I’m all set for colors right now, though. Starting a no-to-low-buy because I don’t play enough with what I already have!

I love these. They have a bit more spark for me then a lot of similarly themed palettes. And a sense of humour. I’m so amused by the names that I feel like I need at least one (Eyeing Water and Air). But I’ve heard mixed things about Melt’s formulas so I want to wait for reviews. I do wish Earth had more green. As it is there is too much yellow for my skintone, but I think it could be great for other people!

For once, my sign – Scorpio – is attached to the palette I’m most drawn to! I love the blues in Water, the unexpected depths and there are some neutrals to ground them as well. I might have to pick this up, will be waiting to see how it is reviewed!

On the positive side, it’s good to see the brand bring out quite a versatile range of palettes, featuring differing colour stories.
On the negative side, I really don’t like the names of the shades – there is enough negativity in this world already without eyeshadow shades being named after it and eyeshadows should be joyful products.
