melting rose


These lipsticks were kindly sent to me just before Christmas, and they’re a welcomed addition to my ever growing Melt collection.

In this particular assembly there are 5 shades in total, all in Soft Rose hues. The formula is creamy but sets to a matte finish, and in my experience they wear relatively well.

You’ll be pleased to hear that this collection is all VEGAN, which is a massive plus!

The shade names are:

Old Rose
Old Fashioned

You can purchase the full collection for $65.00 on the Melt Cosmetics website, OR, you can purchase them separately at $13.00 each.

I had @themeltinglibrary ‘The Autumn Court’ candle but I broke it trying to take pictures 😩 I spend way to much money on Etsy but I love bookish candles, especially Sarah J Maas inspired ones.

The sad thing is I have more on the way. Damn you Black Friday Sales!😣

'Rhysand’ from @inthewickoftime and 'The Night Court’ from @themeltinglibrary smell like the man you wish your man smelled like (which is Rhysand, obviously 😏)

(To Nidoking & Empoleon) What makes a king/emperor/ruler/you got the idea

“Are you asking for an ideal of a monarch? Because as old as we are, we’re still trying to figure that out ourselves.”

“Well, you are, maybe.”

“See, this is why you have no friends. Anyway, it’s good for a ruler to be friendly and open to their subjects, to the best of their ability. They shouldn’t sit back and let matters sort themselves out, but rather take an active approach to handling situations. They need to be strong in multiple capacities, not just physically, but also mentally and emotionally. And kindness certainly helps.”

“What kind of fluff and nonsense…? Ok, I agree with those, to some degree. Charisma carries you anywhere you go, so being able to indulge your subjects is a good quality. Being kind isn’t always the best answer, especially when dealing with trickier adversaries. A sharp wit and a good sense of judgement are essentials in a monarch’s repertoire and arsenal. Tactics are a very integral part of a ruler’s every day life, no matter what. Sacrifices of many kinds must be made each and every day as well.”

“…Ok, that’s why you have no friends.”

“Hmph. If it’s because I’m smart and careful, so be it.”

“How was it that the birds sing, that the snow melts, that the rose opens, that May blooms, that the dawns whitens behind the black trees on the shivering summit of the hills?
One kiss, and that was all.” - Victor Hugo

“These memories of who I was and where I lived are important to me. They make up a large part of who I’m going to be when my journey winds down. I need the memory of magic if I am ever going to conjure magic again. I need to know and remember, and I want to tell you.” - Robert McCammon
