Melt's eyeshadow formula is one that I want to like but often find the quality to be all over the place, and inconsistency makes it hard to get excited about launches since I can't predict performance. It's even more surprising that in a time where high-quality shimmer eyeshadows abound that where Melt missed the most was with their shimmer formula.
Their formula is often too powdery or too dense, and this palette had both types of shimmers. Shades like Rose Brunch and Pink Noise were more powdery, almost cakey, because they were powdery but slightly emollient, giving them a thicker, more uneven lay down of product both in terms of coverage as well as actual physical thickness on my skin.
Shades like Mixed Emotions, Ruby Spar, and Moon Glow were denser, firmer, and harder to pick up with a brush but weren't impressive with fingertips either.
