Melt Cosmetics Water Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches


Water

Melt Cosmetics Water Bad Side Zodaic Eyeshadow Palette ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) released earlier this month as an eight-shade color story that had aquas, blues, and neutrals 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.
