Hey guys! Today I’m so excited to share with you my thoughts on the Melt Baby Girl stack. I feel like I always say this, but makeup is my n.1 passion. And I always have a looooong list of things I’d love to try, so here it comes again:
I’ve always been obsessed with Melt Cosmetics. Ever since they only had lipsticks in their lineup. They always looked a cool edgy brand, their products always seem fun. And since the eyeshadow stacks were created they have been ravely reviewed by my favourite artists. Once again, BeautyBay came through and they started reselling the brand. And while I wanted to get everything, I’ve been good and only took the Radioactive Stack on Black Friday. But then the Baby Girl Stack was later added to the line and I gave in, and here we are.
Melt’s stacks are single shadows, sold in a bundle. They’re magnetic so they are stacked on top of each other hence why they’re called stacks. While I don’t find this packaging particularly efficient, they sure are unique and cute. I actually have too much fun playing with the magnets. I might have dented one or two shadows (it’s not the easiest thing to do, don’t worry, I’m just an idiot).
In this particular stack, there are 5 shades, 3 mattes and 2 shimmers. While the mattes are very bendable, I would recommend having a basic neutral palette on hand. Because the shades here on the medium shades I think it needs lighter shades to help with the blending. And possibly even darker to deepen up the look if needed.
These shades have a bit of kick up on the pan, but there’s no fallout when applying with a brush. The formula is one of the most solid matte formula I’ve tried. Even though they’re easy to blend they don’t need to be built up to show up on the eyes like they do in the pan.
While the darker shimmer shadow is beautiful and applies like a dream, both with fingers and brushes, I did have some issues with the shade Baby Girl. It’s one of those shades that has a neutral base and the colour shows only through glitters when the light catches them. I feel like a brush, even if wet, doesn’t really pick up much, if not a few glitters that end up all over except where I need them to be. The only way I’m able to apply decently is with my fingers.[/two_third]
Baby Girl shade aside, I know I’m excited to try more in the future (hello Blueprint Stack).
