Hello beautiful creatures! Today I wanted to share my Melt MaryJane Palette Swatches with you. I purchased the MaryJane Collection when it was on sale last week and received it on Monday. Melt ships super fast! I have not had a chance to wear MaryJane yet, unfortunately. I received my second COVID vaccination this past Saturday. The second shot was hard on me, but I am so glad to have it done! Please get your vaccines as soon as you can so that more people are protected!
In case you are new to Melt Cosmetics, they are a cruelty-free indie brand that is also Leaping Bunny Certified. Melt’s website says that MaryJane is 100% vegan.
While I loved the crystal, raised up design for the name on the packaging, I definitely agree with my friends in the PhyrraNyx Facebook Group that the font is hard to read. It doesn’t clearly say Mary Jane. I do like the design overall otherwise. And it is a very long, narrow palette, just like my other Melt palettes.
Now, when I saw the promo photos and video for this palette I thought it was going to be a tighter, better edit of the Natasha Denona Glam Palette. I thought it had cool-toned shades. I was wrong. However, I don’t think I mind the color scheme. It’s just not what I was expecting and I’m really looking forward to when I have time to play with MaryJane. Several people have suggested this palette might look amazing on olive skin tones.
- Mary Jane – Wash this sheer bud crystal shade all over the lid or pop it in the inner corner for high-impact shine.
- Gaspar – This jasper matte eyeshadow is easy to wear in the crease or as a wash of color and adds a subtle hit of olive.
- Sweet Lucy – A deliciously seductive metallic shadow with a deep charcoal base and pyrite hued pearl. Apply this shade all over the lid for a smoldering smoked eye.
- Bamba- Dense graphite metallic eyeshadow with a true neutral tone. Wet your brush for a chrome effect.
- Sinsemilla – Smooth deep brown matte with a cool undertone. Smudge this eye shadow into the lash line and outer corner to deepen and define your smoked eye.
- Santa Maria – Black diamond shadow. Opaque and dynamic, she can be applied with a finger or a brush for a dense gunmetal eye look.
- Rubia – She’s our neutral crease shade of this palette. Blend this ash blonde matte shadow in the crease for a seamless gradient.
- Bo – Wash this effortlessly elegant smoky quartz eyeshadow all over the lid for a simple, yet refined eye look.
- Mari – Hold it together. This natural hemp paper hued eyeshadow is here to blend away any harsh lines.
- Kali – Add this sheer crushed diamond toned shadow to the center of the lid for an energetic luster.
