Brunet

Melt Cosmetics Brunet 8-Pan Eyeshadow PaletteMelt Cosmetics Brunet 8-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($48.00 for 0.58 oz.) includes five matte eyeshadows and three shimmer eyeshadows. I had higher expectations for this, as it did have quite a few matte shades, which Melt tends to do better than their shimmers, but there was inconsistency across the board that made it an underwhelming, under-performing palette containing shades we have seen many times over (so why release something subpar?).

I was surprised to see so many light shades in the palette, as Melt doesn’t usually have so many of those very washed out hues, so I imagine this palette will be less workable on darker skin tones as a result.

Musk

Musk is a light-medium, coppery brown with strong, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The eyeshadow was firmer in the pan, though it picked up well with a dry brush and ended up looking very smooth and even when applied to my eyelid. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Bourbon

Bourbon is a deep gold with warmer undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The texture was moderately dense, somewhat stiff initially, but it seemed to become a little more yielding after a few uses. It had opaque pigmentation with moderate fallout as I blended it out, which was somewhat the result of that stiffer texture. It wore decently for eight hours before fading visibly.

Stout

Stout is a dark, olive gold with muted, warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a moderately dense, somewhat stiff texture that I had to dig into in order to get product to pick up on a dry brush. It was easier to work with using fingertips or a dampened brush, especially as those methods also countered the light fallout during application. This shade showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.
