Melt Cosmetics Earth Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Earth

Melt Cosmetics Earth Bad Side Zodaic Eyeshadow Palette ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) released earlier this month as an eight-shade color story that had a mix of gold and orange with a pop of deep green and burgundy. 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.
