Hey True Believers!
I recently purchased my first lipstick from Melt Cosmetics, which is a brand new makeup brand that is ALWAYS sold out of their unique and gorgeous lipsticks. I saw they had 6six6 in stock and ordered it immediately before it could sell out. I had been wanting this particular shade for a while so this was a perfect opportunity for me to review it for you all as well.
Info about Melt Cosmetics:
- They are cruelty free.
- They are vegan friendly.
- They are paraben free.
- They are gluten free.
*This was purchased by me with my own funds.
Melt’s Description: Price: $19.00, $7.00 shipping
Welcome to the dark side…It’s better here. (no shade description)
My Thoughts: Matte darkened red burgundy. When I first opened the tube, I was immediately disappointed in how red and not very dark it looked. On the site the lip swatch is VERY dark and was a blackened burgundy, so needless to say I was pretty unhappy with the false advertisement. It was the reason I decided to review this so I could let you all know.
After exfoliating (which you MUST do when wearing matte lipstick or all your dry patches will be very evident) and moisturing with a lip balm and blotting, I applied the lipstick and was surprised that it was going on darker than what it looked like in the tube. It actually looks more like it does on their model holding the roses on their site than on their lip swatch which is much darker. I do like the color, it is very nice and dark on me, and the lipstick itself is not drying and is very comfortable to wear (I’ve been wearing it for an hour now), but it looks VERY familiar.
Then I realized, it looked identical to Kat Von D’s lipstick in Rosary.
They are basically the same exact color. With this being said, it’s definitely a dupe of Kat von D’s Rosary. I can’t even tell them apart on my hand swatch! So if you can’t get your hands on the Melt lipstick, feel good in knowing you can get a dupe at your local Sephora.
