Editor's Review

Melt Cosmetics By Starlight Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium-dark, pink-toned purple with a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff, and this shade was a little creamier than the other two, but there is still some tugging/pulling during application. This shade wore well for eight hours but some color had pulled into the lines of the lips. It was somewhat drying when I wore it. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Rollergirl (P, $18.00) is lighter, less matte. MAC Punk Couture (LE, $16.00) is darker. Illamasqua ESP (P, $24.00) is cooler-toned, iridescent. MAC Potent Fig (LE, $16.00) is darker. Illamasqua Kontrol (P, $24.00) is cooler-toned, darker. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Belladonna (DC, $18.00) is lighter, brighter, less matte.

Melt seems to be struggling with color consistency in their lipsticks. My bullet of By Starlight is WAY darker than pictured, deeper than MAC Punk Couture and more blue toned. I was hoping that it would be closer to OCC Rollergirl, my favorite purple lip color. The consistency of this product takes some getting used to. The super matte texture makes for an extremely drying wear, and application is finicky, streaky, and tugs like no other. I also find that though the lipstick is very pigmented it is not opaque on the first swipe, which is disappointing. However, application improves significantly is the lipstick is slightly warmer than room temperature. Overall, this lipstick is ok. It isn't what I though I was buying and it isn't a breeze to apply, but if you like the color you get and are willing to go to the trouble to apply it, it is a good long wearing lipstick.
