Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter eyeshadow stack review

Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter eyeshadow stack review

One of my spontaneous purchases at IMATS NY this year was the Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter stack. It wasn’t on my list and did I really need more warm matte neutrals? THE ANSWER WAS… YES, YES I DID.

Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter Eyeshadow Stack review

These stacks are really cool because each pan is magnetic and sticks to the others. Plus, you get a ton of product (about 3.5g per shadow vs. MAC pans are 1.5g). The regular price on each stack is $48 US but the IMATS price was only $34!

And the top of each stack has a mirror! Let me tell you, this lil stack has gone to work and on road trips with me. It’s sturdy and handy.

Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter Eyeshadow Blurr Unseen Enigma Stack swatches

Now let’s talk formula. All four shades are highly pigmented mattes. These are not patchy at all, no fallout and are very blendable.

BLURR – soft beautiful blending/eraser shadow
UNSEEN – cool-medium caramel brown
ENIGMA-  red-brown
DARK MATTER –  pitch-black

Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter Eyeshadow Stack look

Using all four shadows, I was able to create a blurred, warm neutral look with the black as a liner.

I did pop a white shimmer on my lid for this, but the rest is Melt. The transition (Blurr) shade is magical because it really does help even out any color differences and makes everything look soft and blended.

  • This stack is gorgeous. I’m living for the warm shades. I’ve actually wanted this for the longest time! I’m hoping Melt Cosmetics is part of IMATS Toronto this year so I could score this one!
