Revlon Lilac Mist, Caramel Glace, Rose Velvet Super Lustrous Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Lilac Mist

Revlon Lilac Mist Super Lustrous Lipstick ($8.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark lavender with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that went on fairly evenly, but it had enough slip that I felt like the edges had very subtle streaking that was visible. The lipstick had a lightweight texture that was emollient without being slippery, so it was comfortable to apply but didn’t slide around during wear. It lasted nicely for three and a half hours and felt moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$8.49/0.15 oz. - $56.60 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "lightweight color and moisturizing shine" with "buildable color payoff" and a "gliding, smooth application." It's a good formula for those who like medium, buildable coverage with a smooth, balmy consistency that glides across lips easily but doesn't feel too slippery while worn.

They're comfortable to wear with light hydration but tend to wear a shorter length of time--anywhere from two to four hours with a couple of shades reaching a little beyond four hours. What I like most about the formula is the finish: it's luminous and more smoothing, so it's kinder to lips with imperfection or prone to dryness/flaking. The formula has slip but doesn't have any heaviness or slickness that makes it prone to getting into lip lines.

Caramel Glace

Revlon Caramel Glace Super Lustrous Lipstick ($8.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, rosy copper with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had medium, buildable color coverage (up to semi-opaque) with a smooth, lightly emollient texture that was lightweight and thin but didn’t feel clingy. The color stayed on well for four hours and was hydrating over time.

Rose Velvet

Revlon Rose Velvet Super Lustrous Lipstick ($8.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, coppery brown with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that adhered evenly and glided smoothly across my lips without tugging. The texture was lightly creamy, smooth, and wasn’t overly slippery, so it didn’t slide around while worn. It wore well for four and a half hours and was moisturizing while worn.

ColourPop Hola Chola Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Hola Chola

Colour Pop Hola Chola 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new eyeshadow palette that features all matte finishes across more muted, neutral hues. For someone on the hunt for a slew of more muted neutrals with a good range from light to dark, this might be a real gem. I can see it being a workhorse palette for matte and neutral lovers. All of the shades were pigmented and long-wearing with a few shades that were a little powdery or required more effort to blend out. At a glance, it gave me Viseart Neutral Mattes vibes, but I think this palette runs deeper.

Shy Girl

Shy Girl is a muted white with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It appeared yellowish in the pan, but swatched much lighter, brighter, and cooler. The texture was dense, more substantial, and almost cream-like, though there was some powderiness present in the pan. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly with a touch of fallout if I wasn’t careful. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$4.50/0.05 oz. - $90.00 Per Ounce

The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing” and “adheres easily to the eyes.” Most of the shades have semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation that applies well to bare skin, blends out without issue, and lasts for seven to eight hours.

The matte eyeshadows tend to be a little more powdery, though soft and finely-milled, in the pan, while the shimmers have a creamier, dense consistency. Occasionally, the more sparkly or metallic shades apply better with fingertips or a dampened brush.

Lil Smiley

Lil Smiley is a light, buttery yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, dense, and felt more substantial than most of the brand’s mattes, which gave it a bit of creaminess. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and had almost no fallout, which was a surprised based on the color and finish. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Chicana

Chicana is a muted, dirty brown with subtle, warm olive undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, smooth texture that was velvety to the touch and a smidgen powdery in the pan. The eyeshadow applied evenly to bare skin without sheering out too readily but remained blendable along the edges. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Chula

Chula is a light-medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well. The consistency was soft without being too powdery nor was it too firmly pressed in the pan, though there was a bit of excess product kicked up in the pan. It lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Chingona

Chingona is a muted, medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had ultra-fine shimmer that didn’t impact the finish but seemed to help the blending. The texture was soft, a little drier to the touch compared to most shades in the palette, but it was blendable on my skin.

Ruca

Ruca is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. There was barely-there, ultra-fine pearl through it, but it helped with blending while it retained its more matte look in practice. The texture was smooth to the touch, a little thinner but didn’t prove to be problematic during application as it blended out well.

Gata

Gata is a medium, bluish-gray with a semi-matte finish. The texture was slightly thinner and drier, which resulted in a powder that was harder to really diffuse and blend perfectly. It was workable with enough effort or cheating it by using another shade to help diffuse the edge (like one of the lighter browns in the palette). It had good color coverage that wore well for eight hours before I noticed signs of fading.

Sad Girl

Sad Girl is a deep taupe with cool, purplish undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that was buildable to opaque coverage with less than a second layer. The texture was lightly powdery in the pan, a little thin, but it adhered decently bare skin. The issue I had was that it wasn’t as blendable as ideal, and it seemed more prone to emphasizing skin texture compared to other shades. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Lil Smokey

Lil Smokey is a deep black with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. The eyeshadow had rich color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out without difficulty, though the texture was a bit firmer and stiffer in the pan.

ColourPop x Becky G Muneca Lip Duo Review & Swatches

Muneca

Colour Pop Muneca Lip Duo ($11.00 for 0.15 oz.) contains a rosy brown liquid lipstick and a neutral brown lip pencil. The liquid lipstick performed decently–not perfect but solid–while the lip pencil was sheerer and difficult to apply evenly. Layering the liquid lipstick over the lip pencil didn’t improve the liquid lipstick; it actually made it take longer to dry down and was more visibly separated along my deeper lip lines.

Muneca

Muneca is a muted, light-medium rosy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage that applied fluidly in a single, even layer. There was a bit of product that separated along my deeper lip lines as the formula dried down, though. The consistency was lightweight, fluid, and spreadable without being overly runny or thin. It wore well for five and a half hours and felt non-drying over time.

Formula Overview

$6.50/0.11 oz. - $59.09 Per Ounce

It is a long-wearing, pigmented lipstick that starts off glossy and dries down quickly to that super flat matte finish. They have minimal transfer with some of the lighter shades having almost none for the first few hours of wear, but any time you’ve had a meal, they lose that transfer-resistant quality to a noticeable degree. They tend to wear anywhere from six to ten hours with darker shades maintaining better color coverage and wear over a longer period of time.

Some shades get a little drying about two-thirds to three-fourths through the wear, while a few shades have been fairly non-drying even many hours into wear. They fade away evenly with most color loss occurring from the center of the lips if eating a more oil-based meal but the majority of color survives a meal.

Reapplication has been hit or miss and tends to depend on how well it wore away and how easily the shade applies normally, but reapplication tends to emphasize the lip’s natural texture significantly compared to initial application and gives lips a very wrinkled, dried-up look. I’ve layered gloss on top of some shades with moderate success, though it will obviously lose the matte finish and will transfer and I’ll get tiny flakes where the matte lip color has lifted by mixing with gloss but has been pretty minimal. The formula had no discernible taste or scent.

Muneca

Muneca is a dusty, light-medium brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with a second layer. The texture felt a little less velvety compared to others in the same formula, which made it more prone to skipping and tugging on my lips, especially for all-over application. It seemed to wear for four to five hours, but it was harder to tell as it was sheerer and blended more with my natural lip color. The formula felt slightly drying over time.

ColourPop 310 Pressed Powder Bronzer Review & Swatches

310

Colour Pop 310 Pressed Powder Bronzer ($8.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a light-medium, orange-brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was easily built up to full coverage if desired.

The texture was smooth, velvety but moderately powdery, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand to avoid picking up too much product at once. It seemed to darken slightly and appeared a bit less yellow/orange when applied to my skin. The powder applied evenly and blended out without difficulty on my cheeks. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.25 oz. - $32.00 Per Ounce

ColourPop's Pressed Powder Bronzer is supposed to have a "super velvety-soft" feel that yields a "natural tanned glow." There was no mention of coverage, but the brand's promotional swatches showed full coverage. The bronzers had a soft, silky texture that was slightly powdery in the pan but tended to apply with ease, blended out nicely, and sat well on the skin. The majority of the shades seemed to have a semi-matte to satin finish, which helped them glide on and appear more natural (in finish) on the skin. The wear ranged from eight to eight and a half hours on me.

Are back-ups worth it?

Generally, not usually for me, so I have learned to resist backing up products, especially color cosmetics that take forever to get through (and probably, literally, forever for me). For haircare/skincare, it has to be something that I would repurchase and keep using (and even then, I find I test...

If I get more information, I will be happy to share it. Update at 4:00PM PT: here is Selfridges’ response – “Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. We are unable to confirm the launch date as we like to surprise, amaze and amuse our customers. Keep an eye on @theyellowdrop as this is where we will make the announcement.”

If you are committed to purchasing through Selfridges on two dates, please consider enrolling in Selfridges+, which is available for an annual fee to get unlimited free shipping; there is Selfridges+ for UK/EU for £10.00 per year and for global, which is $55.00 (USD) per year.  I personally have had the global version for two years.  I mention this because shipping is £25.00 or ~$32.66 US per order otherwise, so if you make two orders, you’ll already have paid for the year-long program.

Unfortunately, there were issues with people signed up for the brand’s email newsletter not receiving the early access notification via email, and the brand had put out messaging on Twitter and Instagram that the collection would go live at noon ET.  As a customer, I received an email on 12/12 that said the collection would go live at 9AM ET (which is why I added that to my post!), and I received an email with the 10% off code at 8:45AM ET.

UPDATE 12/14 5:45PM PT: The brand sent out a customer email a few hours ago, and the email stated “Mother’s MAJOR new Galactic Gold and Dark Galaxy palettes from the limited edition Star Wars: The Rise of the Skywalker Collection went at lightspeed and are now SOLD OUT.” They followed with “Good news: legendary Lip Fetish balms are still available” and provided a link to “sign up” to get details on the Decadence launch.

As the brand has done for most of its launches, signing up for email notification is your best bet for the best communication about launch times. I always try to update my posts with information as I receive it (which usually comes from the customer emails!).

When pilfering through replies by the brand via Instagram, I have not been able to confirm if they have any additional stock or not. Your glimmer of hope is that replies to some customers, the brand is saying “sold out for now my sweet!” These comments do not appear visible (that I can find), and there was a response to someone asking about a restock today that said “Unfortunately it was limited edition.”

First drop now online, 12/26 for Decadence

Best of Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lip Colors

Here’s a recap of my reviews for Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lipstick ($27.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.), which is supposed to offer “bold, glossy color with [a] balm feel.” The majority of the shades have semi-opaque to opaque coverage with a glossy, more jelly-like finish–plusher, shinier than a cream one–and live up to most of the formula’s claims.

It has the look of a liquid lipstick-meets-lipgloss with the coverage and finish. They’re very comfortable to wear as they feel like a plusher gel, which gives them great spreadability but prevents them from getting into lip lines or emphasizing lip texture. They also have longer-wear–often pushing well over six hours–and feel nourishing over time.
