Melt Cosmetics Gunmetal Stack

How I still horde eyeshadows and it’s not even a product that I consider is a must have in my routine is beyond me. However, when it comes to Melt Cosmetics eyeshadows, it’s a MUST. I think I have all but two of their eyeshadow stacks and they always deliver on quality.  Two weeks ago Melt released their Gunmetal stack.

All of their previous stacks have ranged from black to neon orange and have a mostly matte or a slightly iridescent/duochrome finish. One of the main reasons that I was excited about their newest stack was they introduced super shimmery pressed pigments in the stack. I watched their Snapchat account closely as they revealed the new shades one by one. My coins were theirs after that point. Check out some info that the company sent with the shipment.

The most glittery textured eyeshadows we have ever made. This stack is inspired by our love on industrial music and its unrestrained energy.  All shadows in the Gunmetal stack were created to provide instant impact to any makeup look.  They’re like pure pressed pigment in a perfectly crafted stack! Paired with the smoothest matte taupe grey.  Wear them dry or spritz them to achieve and uncontrollable chrome sheen.

 Let’s dive into these shadows!

Harsh Stone white: A glittery champagne white shadow

Assimilate: The perfect deep taupe shadow

Gunmetal: Blue black metallic shadow

Industrial: A sultry grey brown shadow

Is it worth it: Absolutely! Overall I like the versatility of this stack and it lives up to the level of quality that the company typically produces. There is quite a bit of fall out with the shimmer shades.  Making sure they are slightly damp before applying will reduce fall out and intensify the pigment.

Here’s a look that I came up with using the stack!
