Spliff

Melt Cosmetics Spliff Gel Liner ($19.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a blackened brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, creamy consistency that was very fluid and lightweight without being too wet or slippery.

The product adhered evenly without being prone to sheering out but also dried down quickly and stayed in place. It wore well for over 10 hours without fading or thinning noticeably.

Wallflower

Melt Cosmetics Wallflower Gel Liner ($19.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a medium, grass green with warm, olive undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single stroke, which applied evenly and smoothly across my skin whether applied with a finer, liner brush (as an eyeliner) or with a flat, synthetic brush (as a cream eyeshadow).

The texture was lightweight, creamy, and gel-like, so it didn’t feel overly wet or slippery but was fluid to work with. It stayed on nicely for over 10 hours without fading or thinning visibly.

Ingredients

Isododecane, Mica, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Behenyl Dimethicone, Cetyl Stearate, Polyethylene, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Propylene Carbonate, Rhus Verniciflua Peel Cera / Rhus Verniciflua Peel Wax, Copernicia Cerifera Cera / Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax.

Wallflower is everything! That Bank Tank is the closest dupe tells us how unusual Wallflower is. I’d be totally in, if my gel liner skills were better. What an epic color.

I like Spilf. I read the ingredients and don’t see anything cannabis related which I wouldn’t expect in a liner but still had to make sure. I had that reaction to the cannabis oil and I am not going down that road again. I always hesitate when contemplating buying from Melt because I am not a supporter of cannabis use, especially when smoked. But, that is a political debate so I will stay away from saying anything more. I think there are other gel liners that I like as much so I am not excited to buy this. The green isn’t my favorite only because when I looked at it the first thing that came to mind was baby poo!! I normally love anything green.

Deborah, I live where cannabis products are legal and many are being used to treat medical conditions (I’ve tried 2 or 3 types of oil to help me sleep; alas, they don’t seem to work all that well and leave me with a dry mouth!). But even so, I don’t think we need stuff like that in cosmetics names. I mean, really, when is the last time you saw a lipstick named “Laxative” or an eyeshadow called “Diuretic”?

Don’t give them any ideas. A first responders collection: nurse palette with your shades and don’t forget PICC and Foley. A fire dept palette with hook, ladder, arson, and accelerant. Honestly. I tried CBD for my numerous strange types of skin and connective tissue pain…zero help. But it calmed down my digestive system just fine. Not a supporter of it in skin care or m/u products. I think CBD offers no true calming benefits for skin, but that’s just my experience.

Well, I am glad I am not the only one! I tried a CBD face oil and it was one of the first times in like twenty years that I actually had a breakout. There has been so much hype around CBD that I figured it could not all be true. But I really reacted badly to the product and will avoid it in the future. With how popular and trendy CBD seems to be, I bet products will highlight its inclusion instead of hiding it like they do with linalool and others.

First I’ll say that I’m not a fan of the all the different companies using pot derivatives or names in their beauty products. I think they’re taking advantage of a trend to seem on topic and edgy. However, I feel that the Smoke Sessions palette by Melt is incredible. It’s so smooth going on. I do support Melt because I feel that they do well in the quality control department.

But something could be said about this being inappropriate for tweens and teens, but they can walk into a cosmetic store and purchase these types of item. Call it subconscience influencing. I mean, they can’t wear a leaf shirt to school. Just saying. But the brand for the substance of there products is great. I support Melt. They’re certainly more edgy and different than others. They’re what UD used to be.

I said in a comment lower down, but children have access to the internet now. If a kid is old enough to walk in to Sephora and buy a cannabis named eyeshadow, they’ve seen gifs of people dying and porn by now. A liner named “Spliff” isn’t going to push them in to being a heroin addict within a month.

Social media is a far worse influence. I’ve seen photos of mothers who hyper-sexualize their young children or use them to hold the camera to take suggestive photos of themselves. Tweens/teens wearing the heavy makeup of today’s “beauty influencers” tells adults at a first glance they are more mature physically and emotionally than they really are. I’d wager pushing your 11 year old in to being a sexual object for attention is a far worse issue than Melt naming shadows and palettes after one of their inspirations – something they’ve done from the very beginning.

I’m with you both. I guess it makes me a fuddy-duddy before my time, but the names of Melt’s products turn me off when they’re about drug use. I’ve had a fair amount of friends and family with addiction problems and I just can’t see these items in a positive light as a result. I also have to clean up tons of drug paraphernalia (mostly wrappers, blunts, and bongs) in the woods near my house, so that sours me too!

Foley makes me think of Foley sound, the cinema sound effect technique – I think that’s more well known than Foley as a medical term (I haven’t heard of that before) so wouldn’t be surprised if a cinema related product used that name! I could see Zoeva doing a classic Hollywood themed palette using that as a shade name.

These are all I’d ever want in a gel eyeliner! Spliff is the perfect black-brown shade for those neutral eye days where I may not want a full-on pitch black wing, but something a little more subdued and less dramatic.

Yay – more drug names! JUST what I want to see! Personally, I find Wallflower a really ugly colour – for walls, for clothing (though I did recently buy some stretch fabric to make a blouse in a similar, though more subdued colour), and certainly for an eyeliner (for me, that is).

I love olive shades Mariella, but Wallflower is the kind of olive/yellow shade that makes me look sick and I do agree about the drug names – Melt cosmetics is in love with cannabis and I think the brand should act responsibily when naming their products.

Christine, did you find that Spliff dried down more quickly than the other colors in this line? I’ve been interested in the Melt liners based on their ability to be smudged & blended before setting, but it sounds like that might not be the case for that color.

A,
I’m wondering the same thing hoping for it to work as an eyeshadow or e/s base that stays put in hot sweaty weather. Idk if this helps… I have a bunch of Melt’s liner pencils. They’re somewhat waxy and some of them transfer on me but they can be smudged and blended before they set. For darker colors: 1987 black, Filth, Corrupt, Santeria (lip liner) all smudge well. They all stay put better with eyeshadow though.

I just ordered it from Beauty Bay a few minutes ago! From my experience with other products, it takes Melt Cosmetics a good month or so to restock, and that’s even when things are fully operational… Also, it doesn’t look like it will be at Sephora any time soon…

Wallflower is beautiful! It reminded me of back in maybe, 2013/14 when I saw a picture of Loara Arellano wearing a lime green liner, i think it was Limecrime. It looked really cool. I also checked out the ingredients on this one and spliff, just wondering because of the name. No use of any hemp ingredients, ok, fine either way.

I don’t think so! 🙁 I’m not sure why, but the liners haven’t been going to Sephora more often than not.

Even though both shades don’t appeal to me, they are of fantastic quality. Wallflower is such an unusual shade and I could see it working well with all manner of spring shades.

This formula is killer! I love everything about it. It’s one of the few products I can use to create a small wing on my mature hooded eyes. I have a fold of skin to go line over and this does the job without issue. It also does NOT crease and crack as the day progresses. I cannot say enough about it.

These two colours look fantastic. I definitely need that blackened brown. A great alternative to black.

Yes to Spliff all day. As I get older I’m more in love with deep, rich, chocolatey brown liners that actually go on dark and deep, but aren’t as harsh as black. I really like Wallflower but I’m not sure how much I’d use a color like that.

Wallflower is such a beautiful, unique colour. I’m not sure how flattering it would be on me but I’m very tempted! It reminds me a little bit of 60s bathroom suites but not in a bad way. It would make a nice shade for using with black and white for a 60s inspired graphic liner look.

Spliff is a nice shade and annoyingly the exact type of blackened cool brown I’ve been after, but the name is so cringey to me. I have no issues with cannabis use (I use CBD oil for my chronic pain and am very in favour of decriminalisation of cannabis) and don’t think kids need to be protected from a glimpse of a hemp leaf, but find that kind of self-conscious edginess to be really try-hard. It feels very ‘hello fellow kids’. I feel the same way about old school ~edgy Urban Decay and sex related Nars product names. It’s not because I’m prudish, it’s because when you’re genuinely cool you don’t need to try so hard.
