Earth

Melt Cosmetics Earth Bad Side Zodiac Eyeshadow Palette ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) released earlier this month as an eight-shade color story that had a mix of gold and orange with a pop of deep green and burgundy. The matte formula actually seemed less dense/intense compared to Melt’s normal matte formula, but they were easier to control and build up. The shimmers were also less firmly-pressed than I’d typically associate with Melt, which made them improved.

I just wanted to say that there’s a typo in the product description title in bold. It’s Zodiac, of course.

I am heart-broken that the one color I was really interested in, STUBBORN, earned a D. I looked at the suggested dupes and I think Harlowe is the closest, but it might be a 90%. The others are yellowed beiges, to me.

Which brings me to the question how do sort the golden browns from the red browns or the purple browns?

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
