The Stash: Melt Cosmetics Lipsticks

Hey all 🙂 A few days ago, I gave you a look into my MAC lipstick collection. Today, I’m going to give you a look into my Melt lipstick collection. As a lipstick junkie, I never get tired of lipstick BUT I know some people do. No worries though, because I’ll have some other themed “stash” posts coming soon. Anyway, back to Melt :)…

I did a review on Melt’s lipsticks last year so if you want to get more of a in depth opinion on these then check that out here. This post is more of a swatch post as all of my other “stash” posts. I will give you a little background on the company though before I jump in.

Melt Cosmetics was started by 2 women in LA, Lora Arellano (pictured above) and Dana Bomar. They’re both makeup artists, Lora has even done makeup for Bad Gyal RiRi :). The company sells lipsticks and eye shadow stacks, for now. Rumor has it that they will be adding more stuff eventually. Their lipsticks are ULTRA MATTE with BOLD COLORS. Their eyeshadow stacks are super, duper pigmented! They are also cruelty free and vegan friendly. To me, they’re a pretty damn kickass company. Now on to the swatches…

On the website, they don’t describe the colors really. They write a creative, story like blurb instead. My thoughts on the shades are..

Blow – deep green

By Starlight – deep, blue based purple

Bane – black LOL

Spacecake – the best cool toned grey you’ll find

Dark Room – beet red

Catsuit – chocolate brown

In my last post about melt, I had Blow, Bane, By Starlight, and Spacecake. Last week, I just received Dark Room and Catsuit. Some of the lipsticks are smidgen creamier than the rest. In this case, Dark Room, Catsuit, and Spacecake are the creamiest. It was easier to get a swatch. For the other 3 shades, I have to swipe a bit more. Hence, when they say ultra matte they mean ULTRA FREAKING MATTE. Some people aren’t a fan for that exact reason. They find that the lipsticks tugs roughly on their lips but I find if I put some lip balm before hand and let it settle. then apply the lipstick, I’m golden.

If you’re interested in purchasing, check them out at Keep in mind thought Bane, By Starlight, and Spacecake are currently sold out but if you want to keep an eye out subscribe to their newsletter!
