Melt Lip // 6six6
Melt Cosmetics, an American born brand that creates intense, super matte lipsticks in an array of shades that are designed to stand out from the crowd including vibrant oranges to emerald greens.
Welcome to the dark side with 6six6, a deep wine red that vamps up any look instantly. When applying it's actually quite creamy and glides on leaving a little sheen on the surface that quickly settles for that desired matte finish. A few drinks and it won't budge but if you're heading out for a meal maybe throw it in your bag to top it up ever so slightly throughout the night to avoid any fading. The main bonus about this product is that unlike a lot of matte lip products it doesn't leave you with dry or lip balm craving lips.
In a rush to try out 6six6 I didn't bother lining my lips but I'd recommend using a lip liner first as it took quite some time to get a clean line without and being such an intense colour you can't really get away with slightly smudged edges. Mac's 'Vino' lip liner would be a perfect match. Definitely thankful to my California babe for introducing me to this gem of a brand, I'm lusting after a bunch of the other shades at www.meltcosmetics.com now.
