Eye Shadow -ColourPop -Eyeshadows (all)

I picked up the shade "DGAF" yesterday. As colors go, it's gorgeous. It's a pinky mauve/brown base with coppery glitter, and it's absolutely stunning. And the wear time is pretty decent.

However, I will be returning this. The formula is simply too soft, and crumbled apart as soon as I touched it. Perhaps I got a dud, but to be honest, all the pots of this shade at Ulta looked broken. I can't say if that's the case for every shade, but that's a dealbreaker for me. I hate messy product.

Also, this wasn't quite as pigmented as I'd hoped. There was no tester for this shade, so I bought semi-blind, hoping for intense payoff. Even over primer, it's quite sheer. It's very pretty, but just not what I was looking for.

Price-wise, these are inexpensive shadows (even though it doesn't seem like you get much). But the packaging is awful. It feels cheap and immediately wants to cross-thread when you close it. Seeing as these need to be kept tightly shut lest they dry out, that could pose quite a big problem.

Palettes -ColourPop -My Little Pony Pressed Powder Shadow Palette

This is definitely not one of my favorites. I am not big on bright colors and most of them were not ones that I would use.


Palettes -ColourPop -You Had Me at Hello Pressed Powder Shadow Palette

foto

This is a nice neutral palette with the perfect mix of shimmer and matte shades. It is a very versatile color palette when you want to go for the minimalist look or do bold lips. I hope they don't discontinue this one because it is one of their better palettes.

Eye Shadow -ColourPop -Pressed powder eyeshadow palette - She

This is my favorite colourpop palette and it's a shame it was discontinued. All of the colors blend really well and can work on any skin tone. I like that none of the shades are too dark which is one thing that deters me from buying palettes.

Eye Shadow -ColourPop -Super Shock - Bae

I bought two similar shades of Super Shock eyeshadow: Bae and Issa. They are both purples, but Issa is slightly warmer (more red-toned) and it is an Ultra-Glitter eyeshadow, while Issa is an Ultra metallic. They have the same, light blue shimmer, but the shimmer in Issa is very fine, while it is more of a glitter in Bae. In the packaging, both of these shadows look like a dark plummy color. Whenever I have time, I will take a side-by-side picture of both of them on each eye - otherwise it's actually very difficult to see the difference. When I first wore them like this, my husband couldn't even tell I was wearing two different shadows

Super Shock eyeshadows are cream shadows, so they are best applied with fingers. The texture is like something between a powder and a cream - very smooth, non-sticky, non-oily, easy-to-blend texture. However, there are some differences between different colors, and personally, I like Issa more than Bae because it blends so much easier, and the color is easier to build up, If I want. Bae looks like it would have the same intensity, but it somehow doesn't on me, at least. Issa is more buttery, while Bae is slightly stiffer in texture.

What I did like was that this was an eyeshadow with glitter, but it gave me minimal fallout and the glitter remained on my eyes for the whole day... however, I find the chunkier glitter looks a little "cheaper" tan the fine glitter in Issa. Stayed all day without any fading and did not require a primer - I like that.

A small comment about the packaging. I'm not a big fan of it. I like the look of it, but it's a bit bulky, and sometimes, the shadows can fall out - not good. You can often just push them back into the packaging, but I mean: it shouldn't happen! Often, the cream spins around in the box... not good. I don't know how easy it is to crack any of these, or how fast they will dry out. Will probably report back if I have any news on either. Right now though, Colourpop Super Shock eyeshadows have the best cream texture I've ever tried
