This review is for the Melt Nood Collection which retails for $64 USD. Each shade can also be purchased individually for $19.

What Melt say about this matte lipstick:

Melt don’t actually say anything on their website about their lipstick’s performance, but each shade does have a super cute poem as a description. I’ve included them with the individual shades below, because who doesn’t like a bit of art with their art?

My Thoughts:

Beautiful. Love them. I am so happy with these, and they will definitely be added to my kit.

The Upside:

They are matte, but not overly so. They aren’t drying. The four shades compliment a wide range of skin tones and can easily be mixed together to create new ones.

The Downside:

Melt is not a completely vegan brand, and neither of their eyeshadow collections are vegan.


The Extended Review:

All of the following photos were taken in natural daylight and they have not been edited. I applied no liner, and one coat of each shade for comparison purposes.

All of the Melt lippies are gluten and paraben free, and come in beautiful matte black tubes.

I love these lipsticks. I can feel an obsession coming on… They are super pigmented, matte without feeling dry, and every shade in this collection is perfection.

Swatches of the Melt Nood Collection

They did tug a little as they were being applied (I read in other reviews that they didn’t?), but heat from the lips warms them up and like magic, their consistency is perfect. Creamy and velvety, opaque but not thick. They smell so good, just like vanilla. I found the whole range to be long wearing, and not at all patchy. They also wear off nicely, and are very easy to reapply. I really can’t say enough good things about them.


“Dip your entire body from head to toe in smooth rich chocolate.

Your lips are the most delicious dessert on the menu.”

Unhooked and thrown across crisp white sheets.

Do not disturb.”

Makeup Artist Tip:

These lipsticks are very easy to use. If using at home, apply directly to your lips and then use a lip brush to smooth, and create precise edges. If applying to a client use a spatula to scrape product onto a palette, and apply using a lip brush. Build up to achieve the desired opacity, and use with or without liner.


The Melt range is available worldwide from their website.

Thank you for choosing truly cruelty free products!
