Review: Melt Cosmetics Lipstick in By Starlight

Friday, June 7, 2013

If you've been following my posts for a little while you may have picked up on a few things. 1. I am super pissed I never snagged a tube of Heroine Lipstick by MAC and 2. I took a makeup seminar with the lovely Lora Arellano from Instragram @loreleicakes and I love her. Now combine these two things and it's only obvious that I purchased this lipstick by Lora's new makeup line, Melt Cosmetics. As an avid follower of hers I saw the announcement of her lipstick line and I was counting down the days to make a purchase (literally ordered the evening they came out). I decided to buy just the one color since I wanted to try the finish first, they are all ultra-matte which is genius and a testament to how closely her and her business partner are watching beauty trends because everyone is going bat shit for matte lippies.   I have worn the lipstick and all I can see is I should have bought them all! I did some trial runs with Currant Lip Liner from MAC and layering it with MAC's Dreaminess Lipstick for fun, but I found that I really love it by itself.
Though it's very matte it glides on smooth and it's buildable so if you don't want a huge wash of color you can layer it to your heart's desire for the perfect shade of purple. I got a few compliments (and a couple of side-eyes) my first time wearing it but that's what I love about taking some risks with color, you never know how people are going to react. This coupled with nude eyes, tons of mascara and bronze cheeks created the perfect summer look. If you're in the market for some bold lips I would check out this line, it's worth it!

  1. I love that color! I'm super into purple lipsticks right now and I'm collecting so many shades. This looks perfect on you - goes so well with your coloring and hair!

  2. Thank you so much Michelle! You should totally give it a try. I actually just recently purchased 'Feel My Pulse' in MACs new collection, though I like it this is still the best purple for me.
