The Melt Cosmetics Amor y Mariposas Collection has been announced as being the holiday collection for Melt this year. I’m kinda gutted they didn’t launch anything at all for Halloween.
Last year’s Beetlejuice collection was extremely popular, so it’s crazy there wasn’t anything for 2021, especially as the brand’s aesthetic ties into Halloween perfectly. Whilst we got nothing for Halloween, we’ve now seen the announcement of their Christmas collection instead.
“Love and butterflies. A collection inspired by the comforting memories that find you after grieving a loved one lost, reminding you of the vibrancy of life.“
The Melt Cosmetics Amor y Mariposas Collection‘s name translates to “love and butterflies”, and the collection was announced via a video, showing the co-founder Lora tearfully talking about the loss of her dog;
“In Michoacan, the monarch butterfly is believed to be a connection between the living and the dead. They often depict a loved one sending a message that their spirit is still alive.“
Whilst Lora is talking about the Melt Cosmetics Amor y Mariposas Collection, and the connection between butterflies and those that have passed, a butterfly appears, and it’s such a different, touching way to announce a collection.
During the video, we can see sneak peeks of the products within the collection, including a palette, three lipsticks, and Lora is wearing a jewel-toned green eyeliner, which looks like it might also feature in the collection.
The Melt Cosmetics Amor y Mariposas Collection looks to contain an eyeshadow palette, in a format we’ve never seen from the brand. With at least eight shades, in circular pans with an embossed design on some of the pans, with butterflies.
Shade wise, they’re all very neutral which is unlike Melt Cosmetics as they’re normally much more colourful, so it’ll be interesting to see the full reveal of the palette.
The other sneak peek of the Melt Cosmetics Amor y Mariposas Collection we got, was these three bullet lipsticks, which each have the butterfly pattern, with a bright red, bright pink and bright purple.
They look like they’re possibly matte, but they’re all very bright which contrasts with the shades we’ve seen in the palette, and I’ll be sure to update this post as soon as more information is revealed.
