Melt Cosmetics Millennial Pinx Eyeshadow Palette Review

IMG-2889

Hi all!  I had some Sephora gift cards, so I decided to pick up the Melt Cosmetics Millennial Pinx eyeshadow palette. I’ve been wanting to try Melt’s shadows, but their recent releases have been either too deep or too bright for me.  Melt describes these shades as “a refreshing combination of boujee pinx and modern greys with an edge! The unique tones in our ultra-pigmented, one-swipe opaque formula will get anyone out of their makeup rut!”

Yes please, that sounds amazing!

You can also pick this up on the Melt website here.  It retails for $58.  I really like the description of the shades from Melt:

Rosé Brunch – Pop this iridescent pink bubbly on the lid and you’ll be ready for any Sunday ritual.
Pink Leather – The juxtaposition of this soft, but bold strawberry milk hue excites us.
Flamingo Dream – Wash this tropical pink ultra-matte shadow all over the lid for a dreamy and feminine eye.
Mixed Emotions – The vivid pink shift of this decadent rose quartz will have you feeling all types of ways.
Modern Love – There’s nothing more romantic than this contemporary rosewood hue.
Ruby Spar – Bring that date night sparkle back in this metallic rose wine shadow.
Pink Noise – The loud pink shift of this opal iridescent is as addicting as your favorite love song. Turn up the chrome by using this wet.
Moonglow – Not even the stars can explain the beauty of this luxurious silver metallic.
GF – Boys come and go, but your GirlFriend and this french grey matte are forever
Euphoria – How deep is your love? As deep as this active charcoal ultra-matte shade.

Here are swatches of the shades:

Here’s a swatch of all of the shades to get a good look at the color story.

From left to right Rosé Brunch, Pink Leather, Flamingo Dream, Mixed Emotions, Modern Love and Ruby Spar.

The mattes in this palette are so pigmented and easy to blend.  I love the pinks especially Pink Leather and Modern Love.  Flamingo Dream is a bit bright, but it does look pretty on.  The metallics are very softly pressed and a little flaky.  But when wet, they are stunning!

The last four shades from left to right are Pink Noise, Moonglow, GF and Euphoria

These two metallics are gorgeous but very sheer.  They can be built up by using your finger or a wet brush.

All in all I’m happy with this palette.  I’ve seen mixed reviews but I think the quality is very nice.  I’ve made some pretty soft looks and more dramatic looks with it. I’m happy I’ve added it to my collection!
