Gun Metal

Melt Cosmetics Gun Metal Eyeshadow Stack (x4) ($48.00 for 0.36 oz.) contains two glitter-packed shades, one intensely metallic shade, and one matte. It’s a hard set of textures to combine and work together, because the glittery shades are incredibly dry, chunky, and very prone to fallout. Even when I tried using an adhesive base with them, there was still fallout while worn, and I did get some in my eye while I wore the palette for testing.

Harsh Stone White

Harsh Stone White is a soft, golden beige with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with half of a layer more or used with a dampened brush. The texture was smooth, dense but not heavy or thick, and easy to blend out. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Assimilate

Assimilate is a medium taupe with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, moderately powdery texture. The eyeshadow blended out beautifully, but it did have a bit of fallout (even after I tapped away excess). I was happy to see that despite the powderiness, the color itself didn’t seem to sheer out too readily, so I could built it up with two to three layers for better opacity. It lasted for eight hours on me.

Industrial

Industrial is a blackened taupe with warmer, brown undertones and a sparkling, glittery finish. The pigmentation was fantastic, but the texture was definitely drier and had chunky, larger glitter particles which made it harder to apply evenly and resulted in a moderate amount of fallout when I tried to apply and blend it out on my lid. It was easiest to work with using a dampened brush, which went a long way to preventing fallout during application but still allowed some fallout during wear. The color stayed on well for eight hours with some fallout.

Gun Metal

Gun Metal is a dark gray with neutral-to-cool undertones with a glittery finish. It had good pigmentation, but the consistency was incredibly dry, more loosely pressed, and chocked full of chunky glitter. It was hard to use dry, because it was a challenge to get the product to adhere well while also blending it out; it could work patted onto the lid in a cut-crease look, but any blending at all resulted in a fair amount of product dropping off of the lid. I tried it wet as well as with a light adhesive (MAC Fix+), which definitely improved the application of the shade but I still had slight fallout throughout the eight hours it lasted for.
