ColourPop Fall 2019 Shadows Reviews & Swatches (Part 3 of 5)

Turntables

Colour Pop Turntables Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark, pink-coral with strong, warm peachy-gold shimmer that gave it a metallic finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that felt dense but wasn’t too thick or too firmly pressed into the pan. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

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.

Not OK

Colour Pop Not OK Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a sparkling finish. The eyeshadow had rich color coverage that adhered well to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges. The texture was smooth to the touch, dense but not too firmly pressed into the pan, and picked up well with a brush. It lasted well for eight hours on me before fading a bit.

It had opaque color payoff paired with a soft, lightly dusty texture that was blendable and retained its intensity on the lid, so it was easy to work with and didn’t have issues with sheering out or fallout. This shade wore nicely for eight hours before I noticed slight fading.

Bump This

Colour Pop Bump This Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a soft, lighter orange with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out effortlessly. The texture was soft, smooth, and not too softly nor too firmly pressed into the pan, so it picked up well with a brush but retained its intensity when blended along the edges. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Twin Star

Colour Pop Twin Star Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, light yellow with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The color coverage was opaque in a single layer, while the texture was soft, blendable, and smooth, though it felt slightly more loosely-pressed. I’d recommend using a flatter brush and pressing/patting onto the lid rather than sweeping to be sure of no fallout. It lasted nicely for eight hours on me before showing signs of wear.

Heart 2 Heart

Colour Pop Heart 2 Heart Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep, orange-gold with strong, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had a more loosely-pressed texture that felt slightly drier, so it was easy to pick up too product or have a fair amount of excess kicked up in the pan. This led to fallout during application, and it took a bit more effort to really press and work it onto the lid for an even result. I ‘d recommend applying it with a dampened brush or fingertip, which greatly improved application. It had opaque color coverage that wore well for eight hours on me.

Bobbi Brown Big Apple & Cherry Crush Crushed Liquid Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Big Apple

Bobbi Brown Big Apple Crushed Liquid Lipstick ($27.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a bright, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips. The texture was lightweight, spreadable, and felt like a gel-cream hybrid–substantial but not heavy or too slippery. It smoothed out some of my lip lines, too. It lasted nicely for six hours and was hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$27.00/0.2 oz. - $135.00 Per Ounce

The formula 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.

Ingredients

Polybutene, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Isodecyl Isononanoate, Dextrin Palmitate, Glyceryl Hydrogenated Rosinate, Oxycoccus Palustris (Cranberry) Seed Oil, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Seed Oil, Vaccinium Myrtillus Seed Oil, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Lecithin, Caprylyl Glycol, Simethicone, Fragrance, Benzyl Benzoate, Limonene, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate.

Cherry Crush

Bobbi Brown Cherry Crush Crushed Liquid Lipstick ($27.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a glossy, cream finish. The texture was flattering–it smoothed out a lot of my lip lines and made my lips look plumper from the shine–and comfortable to apply and spread out for an even result. It had semi-opaque color payoff in one layer, which could be built up to full coverage with a second layer but was most comfortable and foolproof to apply with just a single layer. This shade stayed on well for six hours and felt moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$27.00/0.2 oz. - $135.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to offer "bold, glossy color with [a] balm feel."

NABLA Cosmetics Privilege Skin Glazing Highlighter Review & Swatches

Privilege

NABLA Cosmetics Privilege Skin Glazing Highlighter Powder ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a soft peach with a hint of pink but was a warmer-toned shade paired with a luminous finish. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-opaque to opaque, while the texture was soft, smooth, and blendable on my skin.

The actual pan of product was more firmly-pressed into the pan, so it had a more solid feel to it, which worked better with moderately-dense brushes as opposed to something more feathery, but there was no powderiness and the powder had that “melted” effect applied (which is signature to this type of formula).

This was one of the lighter shades in the range, and for those with neutral-to-pink undertones and fair-to-light skin, it would be very “my skin but better” in its effect. It had a soft sheen that could be built up in its intensity but never emphasized my skin’s natural texture. It lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.23 oz. - $113.04 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed have a "mirror effect" and "unexpected brilliance." They have more of a gel-powder base, where it has a slightly drier, firmer feel but not in a bad way, so the product will pick up best with a moderately dense brush (as opposed to something like a fan brush) but have no powderiness.

The range was very pigmented but easy to pick up less product for a sheerer, more buildable effect. They were easy to apply, blended out nicely, and yielded a moderate glow that was smooth and not prone to emphasizing skin texture.

Is makeup more functional or more of a creative outlet for you?

For what it means to me, it is more of a creative outlet than a functional one; like I’d ultimately apply it because of the joy I find in creating and putting together various color combinations and finishes. That being said, I’m usually testing at least half a dozen products each day (if not...

ColourPop Fall 2019 Shadows Reviews & Swatches (Part 2 of 5)

Sincerely

Colour Pop Sincerely Pressed Powder Pigment ( for oz.) is a deep magenta pink with cool, bluish undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, smooth, and finely-milled without being too powdery nor too firmly pressed into the pan. The color payoff was opaque in one layer, which blended out nicely along the edges with minimal effort. It lasted well for nine hours but left a fuchsia stain behind.

Formula Overview

-

The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing." The way the Pressed Pigments differ is that they're not intended for usage on the immediate eye area.

The majority of the shades are semi-opaque to opaque in coverage, blend out fairly well, and can sometimes be a bit drier/more powdery compared to typical matte shades. They often wear eight to nine hours on me before fading, but many shades in the Pressed Pigment family leave some staining behind.

Starchild

Colour Pop Starchild Pressed Powder Pigment ( for oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark lavender with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, more frosted finish. It had rich color coverage, but the texture was drier, more loosely-pressed, which made it quite prone to fallout.

I also had trouble getting the product to apply evenly and stay that way without using a dampened brush or fingertip to apply it. The product stayed on nicely for eight hours but had light fallout over time (from the sparkles).

Heiress

Colour Pop Heiress Pressed Powder Pigment ( for oz.) is a light-medium lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a soft, lightly powdery texture that was slightly thin, so it was definitely a shade that benefited greatly by a primer underneath it.

The upside was that it was blendable and easy to build up without too much fallout or any tendency to sheer out. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

Tickled

Colour Pop Tickled Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a soft, peachy beige base with flecks of pink, violet, and blue iridescent sparkle. It was previously released in the Oh La La palette, and while it seemed to have a bit more silicone in the formula, it had a loosely-pressed texture that was prone to kicking up excess product and having fallout during application.

It had semi-sheer, somewhat buildable coverage, so for those who tend to use these shades on the inner tearduct to brighten, it might be just fine. For more coverage, I’d recommend using it with a dampened brush or layering it over another shade. It lasted well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

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.

Colour Pop XO Baby Pressed Powder Pigment ( for oz.) is a bright, medium orange with moderate, warm reddish undertones and a matte finish that had flecks of gold micro-sparkle throughout but didn’t translate onto the lid. The texture was soft, lightly powdery in the pan, but the powder applied evenly, blended out well, and wasn’t prone to sheering out or having fallout. The color coverage was opaque and stayed on well for nine hours before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

-

The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing." The way the Pressed Pigments differ is that they're not intended for usage on the immediate eye area.

The majority of the shades are semi-opaque to opaque in coverage, blend out fairly well, and can sometimes be a bit drier/more powdery compared to typical matte shades. They often wear eight to nine hours on me before fading, but many shades in the Pressed Pigment family leave some staining behind.

High Society

Colour Pop High Society Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, medium orange with warm, redder undertones and lighter, warm gold shimmer that gave it a more metallic sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, while the texture was soft, more loosely-pressed so there was some excess kicked up in the pan if I wasn’t careful, and blendable. The color wore nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

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.

Melt Cosmetics Amor Eterno Gel Liners Reviews & Swatches

Inmortal

Melt Cosmetics Inmortal Gel Liner ($19.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a deep black with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had a longer dry down time, so for those who want a more smudgeable product or something that has enough fluidity to work as both a gel eyeliner as well as a base product, this is definitely in that vein.

The texture was moderately emollient, gel-like (lighter-weight than a true cream), and applied evenly. It had opaque color coverage in a single stroke that stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or thinning on me.

Ingredients

Isododecane, Mica, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Behenyl Dimethicone, Cetyl Stearate, Polyethylene, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Propylene Carbonate, Rhus Verniciflua Peel Cera / Rhus Verniciflua Peel Wax, Copernicia Cerifera Cera / Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax. May Contain: Iron Oxides CI 77499.

Cultura

Melt Cosmetics Cultura Gel Liner ($19.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a muted, light-medium orange with strong, yellow undertone and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented in a single, fluid stroke, which applied evenly across skin whether applied with an angled brush or a flat, synthetic brush (as one might to use it as a cream base).

The texture was smooth, lightly creamy but more emollient and a bit “airy” in a way–very true to a gel formula. It took slightly longer to dry down, but it didn’t seem prone to migrating or moving around as it did so. Once in place, the color wore well for 10 hours without fading or thinning.

Ingredients

Isododecane, Mica, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Behenyl Dimethicone, Cetyl Stearate, Polyethylene, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Propylene Carbonate, Rhus Verniciflua Peel Cera / Rhus Verniciflua Peel Wax, Copernicia Cerifera Cera / Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax. May Contain: Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Ultramarines CI 77007, Yellow 5 Lake CI 9140, Blue 1 Lake CI 42090.

Fortuna

Melt Cosmetics Fortuna Gel Liner ($19.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a deep, emerald green with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single, fluid stroke that had a longer dry down time, so it was more readily manipulated and smudged, but I did feel like there was some hang time where I was really waiting for it to mattify (it appears glossy initially).

The consistency was more fluid, more gel-like than a cream, and it did seem to have a fair amount slip so it was hard to get a really even application in a single but it built up well with a second layer. It stayed on well for over 10 hours without fading or thinning.

Ingredients

Isododecane, Mica, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Behenyl Dimethicone, Cetyl Stearate, Polyethylene, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Propylene Carbonate, Rhus Verniciflua Peel Cera / Rhus Verniciflua Peel Wax, Copernicia Cerifera Cera / Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax. May Contain: Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Ultramarines CI 77007, Yellow 5 Lake CI 9140, Blue 1 Lake CI 42090.

Santos

Melt Cosmetics Santos Gel Liner ($19.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark blue with strong, cool undertones and a lightly sparkling, metallic finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer, which was best built up with a second layer.

It was harder to get a really crisp, even line of color as the formula was rather emollient and slid around readily–almost too fluid–but on the flip side, it would make a nice cream eyeshadow or base because of that slip (the larger swatch shows a more even application). Once it dried down, it lasted well for 10 hours without fading or thinning.

Ingredients

Isododecane, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Behenyl Dimethicone, Cetyl Stearate, Polyethylene, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Propylene Carbonate, Rhus Verniciflua Peel Cera / Rhus Verniciflua Peel Wax, Copernicia Cerifera Cera / Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Tin Oxide.
