I'm back with a review of the Melt Cosmetics lipstick. So apparently there was a delay with shipping while my package was in Florida....I'm assuming the delivery turtle got lost (<--- bit of an inside joke). So I got the lipstick on Wednesday, but I was at work so I told Katie to open it up for me to check and make sure that my most coveted lipstick was all in one piece....it was and all was good! I got home and FINALLY got to open up my package....it was so nice!!! There was a love note inside (I attached a love note to my order, so they send one back), a sticker, and of course my lipstick! I took some pictures of the box and packaging, and of the lipstick itself and after about 15 minutes of badly attempted selfies...I finally got a decent picture wearing Space Cake as well!
First and foremost, I would like to point out that the lighting in my room blows and I'm very sorry about that. Second, and most importantly, THIS LIPSTICK IS A-MAZING!!!!! My god this lipstick rocks! It is so creamy and pigmented and smells like heaven! I didn't even need lip liner in the picture I took....I wear it anyways, but not the point! Liner was not worn in the above photo. Absolutely LOVE this lipstick! When I wore it to work on Friday, I was getting compliments left and right! Also got my boss asking me what was with the grey lipstick. This lipstick is so creamy....until it gets cold. That was the ONLY downside to it. The salon I work in is EXTREMELY cold and all of my matte lipsticks harden in there, so it really wasn't much of a surprise. Anytime I tried to just touch up the inner corners, the lipstick just clumped up a bit and made it pretty difficult to apply. I must say that the longevity of the lipstick is amazing as well! I could touch my lips and it felt like I wasn't wearing anything on them, it is very lightweight and smooth. Absolutely loved it! When I took it off later that day, I always wet my lips by licking them and, I must say that Melt also has a pretty decent taste to it....it sounds weird, but it does.
So on a scale of 1-10, I give this lipstick and this company a 20! Two thumbs up! 5 Stars! If you are looking for highly pigmented makeup that is absolutely great, Melt Cosmetics is what you want! Did I forget to mention that a good portion of their products are vegan? Cause they are!
