Melt Cosmetics Came Out With A Día De Los Muertos-Inspired Amor Eterno Line That Has So Much Colors

We’ve said it for years, Melt Cosmetics is the Goddess’s gift to Latinas and women of color in general. The divine brand known for its rich and high-quality beauty products captured our hearts years ago during their first launch and have continued to fill it with each passing new collection. This past summer the brand got us pumped for spring with their Impulsive” Pressed Pigment Palette and this fall they’ve got us ready for a season of orange and red leaves with their Amor Eterno collection.

Si, chicas, your Día De Los Muertos-inspired Fall makeup designs just got bumped to the next level. 

In honor of Día De Los Muertos, the Melt cosmetics brand launched a collection packed with vibrant designs. 

Melt Cosmetics

The new collection includes a Vida Pressed Pigment Palette, Muerte Eyeshadow Palette, Iluminación Highlighter, Inmortal Gel Liner, Fortuna Gel Liner, Cultura Gel Liner, Santos Gel Liner, Monarca Liquid Set Lipstick, Mariachi Liquid Set Lipstick, Fiesta Liquid Set Lipstick. Brushes and a Sarape Bag.

“Our most meaningful holiday collection yet! Amor Eterno is a colorful collection that celebrates the joy of life and the eternal bond you have with the ones you love, even when they are no longer with you,” the brand explained in a caption about the new beauty line.

The new line is a clear reference to the beloved Mexican ballad “Amor Eterno.”

Melt Cosmetics

The song which was first released in 1984 by the late singer Rocío Dúrcal on her album “Canta a Juan Gabriel Volumen 6,” represents an inherited part of Mexican culture that celebrates and openly mourns death. The song was introduced into the Latin Grammy Hall of Fame in 2013 and speaks to the loss of a Dúrcal’s son when he died in an accident in Acapulco. Similar to the way in which it represents Mexican mourning culture, the new line celebrates this aspect of Mexican culture with the embrace of Día De Los Muertos and colors and names associated with it. 

The cruelty-free and vegan collection includes palettes that are meant to honor life and death.

Melt Cosmetics

The line includes three bright liquid lipsticks, four long-wearing bright colored gel liners, six skull-inspired makeup brushes, and two skull eyeshadow. With names like Lagrimas, Noche Eterna, y Corazon its clear that the creators of the brand wanted to pay homage to the celebrations of Día De Los Muertos and the people who observe it. 

The line is fun and stunning and coming soon and includes:

Cardi B Files Trademark For ‘Bardi Beauty’ After Hinting That She Wants to Launch Her Own Makeup Line

Cardi B Files Trademark For ‘Bardi Beauty’ After Hinting That She Wants to Launch Her Own Makeup Line

Cardi B doesn’t stop hustling. Recently, the Bronx-born rapper filed legal documents to trademark the phrase “Bardi Beauty”. That means that Cardi B is thinking of getting into the makeup and beauty game.

So, in essence, Cardi B is planning a full takeover of the beauty industry. And we can’t wait! Cardi B’s past red carpet and photoshoot looks have practically broken the internet with their creativity and innovation.

This trademark filing comes to no surprise to fans who have been closely following the rapper’s business life. Cardi B has been teasing the idea of releasing a beauty line for years. Just last month, Cardi claimed that she wanted to start a haircare line for Afro-Latinas.

Earlier this year, Cardi announced on Instagram: “This year I will be coming out with a hair[care] line that I been working on at home for my hair and my daughter’s.”

“Being Hispanic/Latina don’t make your hair long, don’t make your skin light, or don’t make your face features slim, [e]specially Latin countries from the Caribbean islands,” she further explained on Twitter. “DNA [has] something to do with your hair, not your nationality.

“Bardi Beauty” would be one of many business spin-offs that Cardi would commit her time to. It was only a matter of time before she went the beauty route with Bardi Beauty.

The Grammy-winning rapper already has had massive success collaborating with brands like Reebok, Steve Madden, and Fashion Nova.

Fellow music jefas Rihanna and Selena Gomez have created lucrative beauty brands like Fenty Beauty and Rare Beauty to great fanfare. In fact, creating a beauty brand to go along with her music brand seems like a natural thing for Cardi B to do.

Let’s hope that Bardi Beauty will take the Fenty Beauty route and create products for people of different races, ethnicities, and skin colors.
