Melt Cosmetics Four Twenty Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Four Twenty

Melt Cosmetics Four Twenty 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.66 oz.) is a new, 10-pan palette that features nine matte shades and one shimmer shade. The majority of the eyeshadows had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, but they were on the more powdery side, which resulted in light to moderate fallout. The two deepest matte shades took more effort to blend out, though they seemed workable to me.

Shot Gun

Shot Gun is a bright, very yellow-leaning chartreuse paired with a matte finish and strong, warm undertones. Alternatively, one might describe it as a darker, “cooler” yellow. The texture was moderately powdery with some kick up in the pan and light fallout during application.

It had nearly opaque color coverage but sheered out a bit in practice, so a primer was necessary with this product. The color showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

Faded

Faded is a brighter, yellower chartreuse green with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, but the moderately powdery texture resulted in the product sheering out in practice, so it had to be used over a primer and built up.

There was also some fallout due to the texture, so you’ll want to be careful to tap off excess prior to applying it to the eye area. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.

Chronic

Chronic is a muted, medium-dark green with moderate, warm olive undertones and a matte finish. The texture was somewhat stiff and firmer, which made it harder to pick up evenly as well as made blending more challenging. It wasn’t powdery, though, so there wasn’t any concern for fallout. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. This shade wore nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Roll It

Roll It is a deep, olive-brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The color coverage was opaque in one layer, though the texture was slightly drier and harder to diffuse and blend out along the edges.

It was slightly improved over an eyeshadow primer but will take extra effort to blend due to the intensity and depth paired with the texture. This shade showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

Blunt is a light-medium, yellowy-brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, lightly powdery but blendable with minimal fallout, while the pigmentation was opaque in a single layer. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Shatter

Shatter is a bright, medium yellow with moderate, warm undertones and a frosted finish. The consistency was drier and slightly gritty to the touch, which resulted in some fallout during application. It was harder to apply evenly without using a fingertip or applying it with a dampened brush. It had good color payoff that stayed on decently for seven and a half hours on me.

Wax

Wax is a bright, medium yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow yielded opaque color coverage in a single layer, but the texture was lightly powdery, so it did appear a little dry when applied to my skin. I also noticed that it darkened slightly–appeared more orange in practice–which may or may not be a deal-breaker. It did this to a lesser degree over primer. This shade lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly and left a subtle stain behind.

Full Melt

Full Melt is a muted, medium-dark orange-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had excellent color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without issue.

The consistency was fairly soft and finely-milled but lightly powdery, so I had to be careful to tap off excess to avoid fallout. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Hash

Hash is a soft, taupe-brown with warmer undertones anda matte finish. The texture was fairly powdery, so there was a lot of product kicked up in the pan but also some fallout during application and a tendency to sheer out. I’d recommend applying this with a primer, which helped noticeably.

It had good color payoff but had to be built up in practice due to the texture, though it blended out seamlessly. This shade lasted well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.
