Sundown

Melt Cosmetics Sundown Blushlight ($22.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium, coppery bronze with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. The shimmer throughout was more finely-milled, so the more the powder was buffed and blended out over my skin, the more luminous (and less metallic) it appeared. The texture was soft, a little dusty in the pan, but it was blendable and easy to work with as I could use a lighter hand to get a sheerer application if desired. It wasn’t, however, buildable (as described) without consciously altering my technique; the pigmentation was opaque in a single layer and a little went a long way. The color stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.13 oz. - $169.23 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be buildable and can be worn alone or layered with other blushes. I'd consider it a more pigmented blush formula; a few shades are soft and yielding enough to be used with a lighter hand or less-dense brush for sheerer, more buildable application, but most shades were semi-opaque to opaque in one layer. The texture ranged from smooth, lightly creamy to soft and slightly powdery (though finely-milled and silky to the touch!). They blended out fairly well, though a few shades could have been more blendable, and most shades lasted between seven and eight hours on me.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I’m loving it for the “sunburnt” effect it gives, since I don’t lay out in the sun any more. This literally looks like a day at the beach!
