It’s been coveted for a long time…watched from afar. Drooled over–it made my heart skip a beat. I wrote its name in hearts, and often dreamt of the day when we would be united. I have been in love with twins, not identical, but fraternal. Yes, it’s freaky, don’t judge me! I love them both the same. And on Valentine’s Day, my world was rocked when I received them both, courtesy of my husband! Melt Cosmetics’ Love Sick and Dark Matter Stack! LOL! What else could I have been talking about? Get your mind out of the gutter!
If you’ve followed me, you know that I’ve had a major thing for Melt Cosmetics. I’ve tried their lipstick and loved, and have really wanted the eyeshadows…but I’m such a drugstore girl, I’ve had a hard time finding the desire of coming off of $48 for 4 shades.
But baaaaaby, thank goodness for holidays and gifts! Let’s discuss!
PROMISCUOUS- a beautiful color changing violet-blue! Use it alone, or combine it with black to reveal a completely different shade!
FIXATED – a gorgeous matte grey inspired by one of our favorite lipsticks, Space Cake, so pigmented and cool you have to see to believe
AMELIE- a perfectly peachy gold, you’ll want to add it all over Cheeks! Highlight! Eyes! It glistens and glides on with ease
LOVE SICK- a beautiful ultra-matte burgundy-red …inspired by our most popular lipstick 6six6!
BLURR- a soft beautiful blending/eraser shadow
UNSEEN- a cool-medium delicious caramel brown
ENIGMA- a beautiful rusted red-brown
DARK MATTER- the most pigmented pitch-black
Okay, so both stacks are equally as awesome! Prior to purchase, I showed SLIGHT favoritism to Dark Matter. But, all of these shades compliment each other, and I’ve had so much fun mixing and matching. It is true, they’re VERY highly pigmented and deliver great color that lasts all day without creasing, fallout and have are so easy to blend! Amelie, of the Lovesick Stack, is such an original color, and so bright! I’ve enjoyed putting this on my brow bone, as well as well as my bottom lash line (and truly every where else in between 😉 ). Promiscuous is one of the brightest, most unique shades of purple that I own! Love Sick contains the most sparkly colors.
Dark Matter is team captain of the matte crew. It oftentimes is difficult to get matte eyeshadow that’s highly pigmented, especially for dark skin like mine. Dark Matter is the truth, shows up so well on my skin and does not fade throughout the day. Enigma, is amazing–I would say these collections are highly moving to the top of my favorite list!!!! They’ve recently added Radioactive, which I’m not yet a super fan of and have not yet purchased. We’ll see how that plays out…
At the end of the day, after dabbling in all that makeup, it’s great to have something organic to wash and cleanse your face and body! Do you remember in my previous post when we touched on some of the great products from Christina Moss Naturals?
No, this is not a roast! (or maybe it is just me, I’m pretty imaginative). This, is the organic, all-natural Glycerin Bath Bar! It lathered well, yet was very gentle on my skin, and I was able to even use this on my face! It’s a smooth and silky consistency, and I didn’t experience any skin tightness which is great. It comes with 2 bars and it won’t break the bank. Here’s a little about the product:
- PERFECT FOR ALL SKIN TYPES. HYPOALLERGENIC. ESPECIALLY GREAT FOR THOSE WITH VERY SENSITIVE, DRY OR OILY SKIN: NO harmful chemicals (no SLS, SLES, PG, PG derivatives, parabens, sulfates, dyes or synthetic fragrance). Greatly improves condition of the skin. Please note color may slightly vary from bar to bar.

- CRUELTY FREE – NO ANIMAL TESTING. VEGAN FORMULA: Environmentally friendly. TWO BAR SET. Gently & thoroughly cleanses your skin without stripping, drying out your skin or leaving build-up.
