Back in November, Melt Cosmetics released their newest shade, a juicy, plummy color named Dark Room. When the site went live with the product drop, it was a madhouse. Luckily, having survived the great Missoni for Target Frenzy of 2011, I was prepared. When the dust settled and the lipsticks were sold out, I had my tube, and all was right in my world. Kind of dumb to not buy two, but, I was really in the zone and I had my eyes on the prize.
If you missed the chance to jump on this color in November, it’s coming back in stock, and it’s going to be permanent.
Miss you, nails.
Melt described this lipstick color as the inside of a beet, and that’s pretty accurate. It’s a really rich, sumptuous shade. I liked it best with multiple layers blotted down. It’s matte, and it wears really well. I did a friend’s makeup for her wedding, and we used it to give her a dramatic lip for the reception.
The babely bride and yours truly, wearing Dark Room.
Dark Room will be back in stock on February 4th, so if you want it, get your credit card all cleaned, sharpened, and ready to go. From what I can tell, when Melt restocks, the supply doesn’t last long. Get out there and chase that lipstick! Have you ever experienced the rush of successfully snagging your coveted product during one of these madhouse cosmetics releases? It’s a very triumphant feeling. AND, 7-10 days later, there’s lipstick at your door! BONUS.
