Get The Buzz on What Melt Cosmetics Has Just Dropped!
The theory has it that the buzzing bees of our planet are mother nature’s saviour. It seems like they’re just as special when it comes to cosmetics!
Skincare products benefit loads from bees and the honey that they produce. The same applies to makeup!
One particular launch has taken the concept to a new literal meaning- introducing the Melt Cosmetics Digital Dust Duo Blush Collection. See for yourself what’s got everyone buzzing about these gorgeous duos in this review.
Melt Cosmetics Digital Dust Duo Blush
Melt Cosmetics has smashed the embossed pattern trend going on in the makeup industry!
The packaging is the first thing that catches your attention with their gorgeous honeycomb and bee that’s embossed on the blushes. While you won’t find me trying to touch a real bee, these are irresistible!
The product is a dual-sided compact that has a gorgeous luminous blush on one side and a warmer bronzing blush on the other.
Each compact is priced at $39 or roughly around £30 in the UK and contains 0.24 oz/7 g of product. They also come at a bundled price of $125 which includes a pouch and a mirror in the set.
All items are decorated with the bee and honeycomb theme, which is totally adorable!
All three compacts contain two buzzworthy shades each that can be used alone or mixed for a customised look.
It applies so seamlessly, that you won’t believe it’s not a gel! Of course, the promo photos can easily be manipulated to look like that. But I think you’ll go buzzing once you see that it looks just as perfect in real life!

Texture & Formula
They have this chilled wet powder feel to them. If powder could mimic the feel of a gel product, then this is it.
When applied to the skin, it fuses with the surface so beautifully that it really does look like a natural layer of colour. It’s hard to tell where it ends, which is really the goal of all base makeup!
When applied, it doesn’t feel or look powdery. The pigments are very saturated, yet are still easy to blend. Both shades in the blushes have a stunning dewy finish to them. Although the bronzing blushes look more subtle but still luminous.
I can’t pinpoint if the glow from the product is because of super finely-milled specs of shimmer, or if the whole formula is created with a shine to each and every speck of powder that makes up the compact!
My gut is that these blushes will make really beautiful eyeshadows too. I love a makeup product that can double up in roles! The Digital Dust Duo Blush Collection is all oil-free so if you have oily skin these blushes are ideal for you. They won’t make you shine or cause oil build-up.
The formula clings to the skin without sitting on your fine lines or pores. It also stays consistent too. No matter what you are using to apply the blush on your cheeks, be it a brush, sponge, or your fingers, the intensity and smoothness stay the same.
Since they have an almost wet-like consistency, you’d probably expect some kind of patching when it’s been layered. But guess, what? Nope! The blushes are buildable and still look fabulous!
While the colours are saturated, building them up only means you get a more intense layer of pigment, rather than an intense and obvious layer of gel-powder product.
One thing that you should be aware of is that while the colour can be built up, the dewy finish is also built up. If you’re not careful, you might end up looking like a neon ball, since there is no way to control the luminous finish that comes with the product.
It can be diffused with a translucent setting powder if it’s all a bit much for you.
Do you know how many makeup products are made to suit a specific colour tone? Well, these blushes are quite remarkable, there may only be 3 of the duo blushes but between them, they suit all skin tones and shades!
You’ll be surprised to know that these apply very lightly on pale skin, and are buildable too. All three compacts will look good on any skin tone.
Are They Worth It?
These blushes last all day long! I love how they don’t smudge or melt as the day progresses, they look just the way you applied them hours after. Are they worth it? I think a definite yes!
The formula is seamless and lives up to the price. It’s the type of product that you bring with you when you go out of the house, simply because it has a lot of uses and the formula is solid and reliable.
They are sheer to full coverage, and the longevity is there. The only problem I see that may disappoint some is the luminosity of the finish. It’s so glowy it almost looks like glitter! But again, if you apply it in moderation, you can control the shimmer.
The Melt Cosmetics Digital Dust Duo Blush Collection is a set of stunning blushes and if you love a sheer glowy complexion, I highly recommend you try these out.
You can use them with or without a base, and from the formula to the shades and packaging, it’s all worth the buzz! You’ll find yourself on a beeline straight to these products on the shelves. (Mind all the puns!)
The only disadvantage to these blushes is that they are pricey. While they’re not a necessity in your makeup collection, they sure make a nice addition!
