Swatchmas Day 22: Melt Cosmetics Twenty-Seven Eyeshadow Palette

On the twenty-second day of Swatchmas, I give you the Twenty-Seven Eyeshadow Palette from Melt Cosmetics! This has been one of my favorite palettes since the day it launched, and it works for a variety of looks, as well as for a variety of skin tones. There is a good balance of highly pigmented, buttery mattes and smooth-as-silk shimmer/metallic shadows in this palette so I feel like it’s really usable for both daytime looks or for a more dramatic night out.


The Melt Twenty-Seven palette contains ten eyeshadows and a grand total of 20.70 g / 0.73 oz of product. It sells for $58 from both the Melt Website as well as from Sephora, where I believe it’s mostly available online but may also be stocked in some Sephora freestanding stores in larger cities. Melt is a cruelty-free brand and the Twenty-Seven palette is vegan.

The ten eyeshadows featured in this palette are:

  • Naked Sleep:   Matte hot apricot-nude
  • Downtown:   Matte baked clay hue
  • Nip Slip:   Matte provocative peach
  • Moxie:   Matte burnt orange
  • Crimefighter:   Metallic dimensional copper
  • 1 More Thing:   Matte warm taupe
  • Thick:   Matte rosy mauve
  • Vegas Past:   Bronze with green and rose gold reflects
  • Whiskey Neat:   Matte barrel-aged brown
  • Moonchild:   Matte deep maroon
