Love Sick

Melt Cosmetics Love Sick Eyeshadow Stack (x4) ($48.00 for 0.36 oz.) contains a medium purple, faded teal, shimmery coral, and a deep red. Three of the four shades had room for improvement, while one was quite nice; the overall color combination was interesting and cohesive, which made the quality a bit of a disappointment!

Promiscuous

Promiscuous is a bright, medium purple with subtle, warm undertones and cooler, violet pearl. The texture was smooth to the touch but very silicone-heavy, so the slip made it harder to apply the eyeshadow evenly, especially when blending it out. It was better applied pressed and patted on with minimal spreading/blending. The color stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me.

Fixated

Fixated is a deep, dusty teal with subtle, bluish undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer coverage that was buildable to medium coverage without a primer; with primer, it was more buildable to semi-opaque. The consistency was soft but rather powdery. On me, it lasted for seven hours before fading noticeably.

Amelie

Amelie is a soft coral with warm, golden shimmer over a pinker base for a more frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a smooth, very creamy texture that had noticeable slip, which I felt contributed to it being less-pigmented than one would expect (the texture just felt so nice to the touch!) and made it a bit harder to blend without it becoming uneven in places. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

Love Sick

Love Sick is a deep red with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It was nearly opaque with a soft, slightly drier texture that was a bit dusty in the pan, but it applied better on the lid than it felt. The eyeshadow was rather blendable and easy to work with. It lasted for eight hours on me before it started to fade.

A friend of mine gifted this stack to me, and I was definitely excited because Melt had so much hype! Unfortunately I’ve only used it once or twice, and only for Amelie as a highlighting blush. The mattes were so dry, and Fixated was prettier in the pan but didn’t translate on the skin.

I’m not overly impressed by Melt’s eyeshadows either – their Gemini palette might have been one of the better products, lol.

I’ve long loved 3 out the 4 shades; Love Sick, Amelie and Promiscuous. Just not enough to have bought this Stack yet. I probably don’t really need to, either, since all 3 have easier to access dupes.

Yeah I wish I had picked one of the other ones. The colors in this one are interesting but it’s more difficult to work with than my other, better shadows so I never reach for it.

I am so glad that you are reviewing these, Christine. I had recently been eyeing the stacks and since everyone raves about them I thought they would review well. They are pricey, although they do have a lot of product in the pan but they are still an investment. So glad that I can stop buying into the hype. Seems like there is at least one shade in each stack that gets a D or F. Anyway, not for me. Thank you.

This is probably the Melt color combo I would wear. But I have dupes of every color, to me, the packaging is inconvenient, and the price point on their products seems high.

This just looks like such an odd pairing of colours – so much murkiness (and this is from someone who loves murky shades – just not THESE murky shades)
