Bad or Rad | Melt Cosmetics Blueprint Eyeshadow Stack Review

Melt Cosmetics has remained one of the hottest indie beauty brands in the market since the brand released their first line of lipsticks in 2013. Aesthetically, Melt Cosmetics is like the cooler, younger sister of Kat Von D – with marketing and color stories that encourage customers to rock unique, bold looks.

Whenever Melt Cosmetics teases a new release, the hype surrounding that release quickly builds in the beauty community. Hype quickly turns into hysteria as avid fans rush to snag Melt’s newest eyeshadow stack and eyeshadow palette releases.

However, the more I thought about doing a yearlong No Buy, the more anxious I became about my spending...  I started to spend uncontrollably, constantly buying new beauty products online. Essentially, I was on a beauty binge that lasted for roughly 2.5 months. As a result of my reckless spending this Fall and this Winter, I've decided to put myself on a three-month long No-Buy. My No-Buy started on February 11th and will run through May 11th.
