ColourPop Just Your Voice, I Own You, Not Today Jelly Much Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Just Your Voice

Colour Pop Just Your Voice Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a blackened navy blue base with flecks of blue sparkle and shimmer. In some ways, it looked complex in the jar but didn’t seem to look nearly as complex in person (even contorting myself to try and find that complexity!). The texture was more watery and prone to sheering out when applied so semi-opaque coverage was the best I could get in one layer. This also resulted in slightly patchy application whether I used a flat, synthetic brush or fingertips. I had the best luck applying one layer, letting it set in place, and then using a fluffy brush to gently brush on more product to fill in the gaps. It wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.23 oz. - $34.78 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "high impact" in a "single swipe" that's longwearing, "won't crease, fade or transfer" and "dries down to a powder finish with zero fall out." These are water-based, so they feel wet and cooling when initially applied, but the reality is that so little product is needed to get coverage on the lid that I didn't feel it was watery or thin when I actually patted it onto my lid with a brush.

I would recommend using less than you think you'll need, and while fingertips can be used to apply, I liked the control of flat, synthetic brushes gave me as fingertips (for me!) applied far more product than needed. If you over-apply, it can feel wet and take longer to dry down, and it ends up taking too long and can pull into creases/fine lines on the lid. If I used about what I needed (there was some wiggle room), it dried down quickly and set to a transfer-resistant/crease-resistant finish. It was harder to blend out once dry, though, and if I wasn't careful, more vigorous blending could disturb and cause the eyeshadow to flake slightly.

They are easier to use than they look, and I think they're quite good overall, though a couple of shades were less stellar. They have a high-shine finish, though I think the more metallic powder and cream eyeshadows give a similar look that I wasn't convinced that the finish on these was above and beyond products that might be easier to use/more user-friendly. I'm not sure that the pot was the best way to go, as the product dries out extremely quickly; to the point where I would advise closing the product after you've taken product out of it, don't let it sit open while you're applying the rest of your makeup--you will see and feel parts of it dry out.

I found the packaging to be rather messy, and I have bits of product along the edge of the jar, along the rim, and it's fiddly to move the stopper from the opening to the lid and back again. I wonder if a squeeze tube might be less messy and make it easier to control the amount of product picked up while also preventing the product from drying out too readily.

I Own You

Colour Pop I Own You Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a muted, light-medium red with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation, and as tends to be the case with this formula, a little went a long way. The texture was water-like–wet and cool to the touch–but it actually felt more whipped, more mousse-like than most shades have felt to me in this formula. The color applied fairly evenly and dried down fast enough that it didn’t crease or migrate while it did so. The edges diffused without much effort but found I had to be careful to smooth out the product as it was slightly thicker at times. It stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

Not Today

Colour Pop Not Today Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a dark, emerald green with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of copper micro-glitter paired with a metallic finish. It had medium pigmentation that was buildable, but I found it hard to control as the texture seemed on the chunky side–almost more whipped, though still quite watery and “cool” as it went onto my skin. In practice, it looked better and applied better to my actual lid space than when I initially swatched it, though. It didn’t take too to dry down, thankfully, and it had good hold and wear (10 hours without budging), but it definitely emphasized my lid texture.

ColourPop My Pet, Shadow Man, Bad Apple Ultra Glossy Lips Reviews & Swatches

My Pet

Colour Pop My Pet Ultra Glossy Lip ($7.00 for 0.11 oz.) has a translucent base but is packed with flecks of multi-colored pearl and larger pink-to-blue shifting sparkle. All of the shimmer and sparkle amounted to a more medium coverage gloss that still managed to feel very smooth and plush on my lips. What I really enjoy about the formula, which this shade showcases, is how smoothing it is of my lip lines, whereas a lot of gloss tends to sink into those pesky lip lines. It wore well for three hours and was hydrating while worn.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.11 oz. - $63.64 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "hi-shine" with a "non-sticky" texture that "feels amazing" and includes five finishes "from 3-D pearl to sheer tinted colour." They are designed to be a sheerer formula, so many shades are sheer with a smattering of shimmer or sparkle and then a few are more tinted with sheer to semi-sheer coverage but no shimmer. Each gloss has a short, brush-type applicator, which worked better than I expected and didn't leave streaky results behind (in general). They had a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

The "Tinted" finish ("glass-like shine with tint of sheer colour and no shimmer") was the least consistent--sometimes prone to unevenness and getting into lip lines, particularly with deeper/richer shades, whereas Pearlescent ("glass-like shine with subtle shimmer") and Prismatic ("glass-like shine with floating multi dimensional pearl and glitters") are sheer to translucent with the major difference being finer shimmer in the Pearlescent finish and larger, more glitter-like particles in the Prismatic finish. Both finishes tended to look plush and more smoothing on my lips. The Creme finish is a "medium-coverage gloss with a creamy finish that does not contain any pearls or glitter." The Metallic is described as a "full-coverage gloss with a mix of pearl and metallic finishes."

The wear time varied by shade but the sheerer ones tended to wear between two and three hours as the formula was, indeed, non-sticky and smooth, which made them lighter-weight and comfortable to wear but shorter wearing. A lot of the sheerer shades ran together, so I would recommend just picking up one or two rather than several as the differences are likely to be lost! Also, keep in mind that sheerer lip colors can look different from person to person due to much of the natural lip color coming through.

Shadow Man

Colour Pop Shadow Man Ultra Glossy Lip ($7.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-copper base with lots of deep, gold shimmer and micro-sparkle. The brand said it has a “golden-green flip,” though it just read lighter/deeper gold–a little molten but not green to my eye. It was intended to have full coverage, and it had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered my lips evenly and didn’t emphasize my lip lines. The consistency was lightweight, plush, and smooth without being tacky. It lasted for four hours and was moisturizing to wear.

Bad Apple

Colour Pop Bad Apple Ultra Glossy Lip ($7.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a soft, medium red with subtle, cool undertones and flecks of ruby red and fuchsia micro-sparkle. It had semi-sheer coverage (as marketed) that applied evenly (but the unevenness in my natural lip color made it seem less even) and just a touch a product in my deeper lip lines that I could see in the close-up photo but not in person. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and non-sticky, which made it easy to apply and to wear. It stayed on well for three hours and was hydrating over time.

ColourPop You Idiots! You Fools! You Imbeciles! Super Shock Highlighter Review & Swatches

You Idiots! You Fools! You Imbeciles!

ColourPop You Idiots! You Fools! You Imbeciles! Super Shock Cheek (Highlighter) ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a pale beige with a subtle, warm pink-to-peach shifting pearl and flecks of larger, silver micro-glitter. The texture was smooth, emollient without being too wet to the touch, and blendable over bare skin as well as over base products (without lifting them). It had buildable pigmentation from semi-sheer to opaque, depending on application method–fingertips yielded more opaque coverage more readily. It stayed on well for 10 hours before fading slightly, but there were a few wandering sparkles after eight hours of wear.

Ingredients

Dimethicone, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Ethylhexyl Isononanoate, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Aluminum Calcium Sodium Silicate, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Silica, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Boron Nitride, Isopropyl Myristate, Cetyl Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Tin Oxide, Ethylhexylglycerin, Propylene Carbonate.

What are three face products you used frequently years ago but rarely use now?

MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation was a go-to along with the MAC 187 brush to apply it (which I never reach for any more). I was also a big user of MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural back in the day!

Pat McGrath EYEdols Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches (Part 2)

Gold Standard

Pat McGrath Gold Standard Eyeshadow ($25.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic shine. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer and adhered evenly to bare skin. The texture was lightly creamy, smooth, and denser without being thick or stiff to work with. It lasted well for almost 10 hours on me before fading slightly. It performed consistently with the versions found in the Subversive Metalmorphosis and Decadence palettes.

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.04 oz. - $625.00 Per Ounce

Pat McGrath's eyeshadows are, generally, supposed to be "super-saturated" with "creamy, soft textures" and "extreme blendability and adherence without creasing." A lot of how well they perform (and to some degree, how they are supposed to be applied and marketed) depends on the type of shades, but by and large, the eyeshadows perform very much as they are described.

The mattes are velvety, blendable, and dense without being thick or too heavy, and they have semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation where a little can go a long way with some of the deeper and richer hues. The satin and pearl finishes are smooth, lightly creamy, and firmer but not dense or thick with good pigmentation, blendability, and easy application. The more metallic finishes tend to be softer, creamy, and smooth with a bit more denseness and no powderiness. The sparkly/glittery shades are often designed to be applied wet for richer coverage or intensity, which has largely been my experience. Most of the shades last between eight and nine hours.

Statuesque

Pat McGrath Statuesque Eyeshadow ($25.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a soft, golden taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft and blendable texture that was slightly thinner than other matte shades by the brand but nothing that had a meaningful impact on application or wear that I could tell. It lasted well for nine hours on me before fading noticeably.

Pat McGrath's eyeshadows are, generally, supposed to be "super-saturated" with "creamy, soft textures" and "extreme blendability and adherence without creasing." A lot of how well they perform (and to some degree, how they are supposed to be applied and marketed) depends on the type of shades, but by and large, the eyeshadows perform very much as they are described.

The mattes are velvety, blendable, and dense without being thick or too heavy, and they have semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation where a little can go a long way with some of the deeper and richer hues. The satin and pearl finishes are smooth, lightly creamy, and firmer but not dense or thick with good pigmentation, blendability, and easy application. The more metallic finishes tend to be softer, creamy, and smooth with a bit more denseness and no powderiness. The sparkly/glittery shades are often designed to be applied wet for richer coverage or intensity, which has largely been my experience. Most of the shades last between eight and nine hours.

Lapis Luxury

Pat McGrath Lapis Luxury Eyeshadow ($25.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark blue-teal with cool undertones and a metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented where a little went a long, long way. The consistency was creamy, smooth, and dense without being thick, so it was soft enough to pick up with a brush but had no fallout when applied and blended out easily along the edges. It wore beautifully for just under 10 hours on me before fading a touch. It performed consistently with the version found in the Decadence palette.

Purple Reign

Pat McGrath Purple Reign Eyeshadow ($25.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, medium purple with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy texture–dense and a bit more firmly-pressed in the pan–but it picked up well with a brush and applied evenly to bare skin. It stayed on well for almost nine and a half hours before fading slightly on me. It was consistent with the version found in the Subversive La Vie En Rose palette.

This shade was listed as a “EYEdols Pressed Pigment” on the packaging but I didn’t see any warning about use; it contains Red 7 Lake and Red 28 Lake, both of which are listed as “no” for the eye area as color additives by FDA (these are commonly used in other “Pigment” type products that come with the “not intended to be used on the immediate eye area” warning in the US, approved for use areas like the EU).

Synthetica

Pat McGrath Synthetica Eyeshadow ($25.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium purple with subtle, cool undertones and a sparkling finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation but seemed like it was packed with more sparkle than base pigment, which is why there was a slight sheerness detected along the edges if I looked closely. The texture was lightly creamy, dense without being thick, and despite the amount of sparkle in it, the color adhered well with minimal fallout both during application as well as over the nine hours it lasted for.

Dark Matter

Pat McGrath Dark Matter Eyeshadow ($25.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark black with a satin finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation with a smooth, denser consistency–it felt like a cream-powder hybrid, as there was some slip to it but didn’t actually feel wet nor did it indent when pushed on. If you’re someone who likes to use black eyeshadow to darken other shades and always worries about overdoing it, this type of texture is great for darkening without fallout or fear of going too heavy as it’s very easy to control. It wore well for 10 hours before fading slightly on me. It performed consistently with the version found in the Subliminal Dark Star palette.

Urban Decay Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette Makeup Look Ideas (x10)

Urban Decay Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette ($48.00 for 0.49 oz.) is a pink-themed palette with a mix of shimmers and mattes. I don’t find this palette to be very versatile on me–a lot of it runs together for me–but I tried to come up with some different color combos nonetheless. For me, I’d likely bring in more deep shades and add in a couple of brightening shimmer shades to make the palette more versatile.

About This Series

Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. I know that I tend to use more like five or six shades in a typical look, but I think that four is a happy medium to give a good idea of the “core” color scheme of a look while giving you the ability to lighten/darken as desired. I have listed the colors in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease.

You might see combinations that seem slightly repeated but placement will vary (e.g. a halo placement where the lightest and more shimmery shade is placed on the center) as placement can also create a different effect/look! You might also want to consider incorporating your favorite matte/shimmer shades (as applicable) to increase the versatility of certain palettes. Consider these ideas a jumping off point!

ColourPop Poor Unfortunate Souls Super Shock Highlighter Review & Swatches

Poor Unfortunate Souls

Colour Pop Poor Unfortunate Souls Super Shock Cheek (Highlighter) ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light lavender with subtle, cool undertones and cooler blue and violet pearl. It had buildable pigmentation from sheer to semi-opaque and was most pigmented by applying with fingertips. The texture was smooth, emollient without being too slippery, and thin–it felt more like a powder as soon as it came into contact with my skin. It applied evenly and blended out with little effort, but I did find that this shade did not blend out as easily as most Super Shock shades have for me. It stayed on well for nine and a half hours before fading noticeably.
