Melt Cosmetics Air Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches


Air

Melt Cosmetics Air Bad Side Zodiac Eyeshadow Palette ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) released earlier this month as an eight-shade color story that had a mix of coral/orange with pops of purple. The matte formula actually seemed less dense/intense compared to Melt’s normal matte formula, but they were easier to control and build up. The shimmers were also less firmly-pressed than I’d typically associate with Melt, which made them improved.
