Sweet Mouth

Sweet Mouth is a very light, warmer peach with fine, multi-colored pearl throughout. It had a smooth, plush consistency that was comfortable to wear, easy to spread, and didn’t gather in my lip lines noticeably. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was in line with the formula, and it noticeably lightened my natural lip color and (almost gave my lips a milky quality to them). The gloss was non-sticky, hydrating, and lasted well for three and a half hours on me.

Formula Overview

$18.00 -

The formula is supposed to have a ?peach-vanilla? scent (I?d agree?sweet, lightly fruity) and be ?conditioning.? It was designed to be worn alone or layered over other lip products. The consistency was very smooth, light-to-medium in weight, non-sticky, and comfortable to wear. It had a plusher consistency that helped it stay out of most of my lip lines. The shimmer was moderate but noticeable, and it distributed evenly across the lips. They last about three hours on my lips but are hydrating.

Sand Castle

Sand Castle is a light-medium, silvery taupe with warmer undertones and a cooler, silvery sheen. At times, the color looked almost lilac on my skin, though it often looked like a cooler “bronzing” hue, too. The texture was smooth to the touch, lightly creamy without being too densely pressed into the pan. It applied evenly and blended out with little effort without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for nine hours on me before fading visibly.

Note, this shade is part of a permanent duo, but the version in the set is much, much more shimmery–the silvery shimmer is much more noticeable, which gives it a lighter, brighter effect straight on but when I angle my arm, they actually looked the same (I tested in person). They also appeared the same once applied and blended out on actual cheeks.

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to have a "creamy texture" with a "mega-reflective, foil-like finish" that can be used on the "face, eyes, collarbone [or] anywhere you crave a touch of light." The brand described them as "buildable, color-rich luminizers," which seems to indicate the finish is more buildable than the base (as they're touted as "color-rich" in other marketing pieces). The majority of the shades have mostly opaque to opaque pigmentation and have a denser, firmer texture (not stiff, though) that lends itself to lighter-hand application for sheerer coverage if preferred. Most of the shades were pearly to metallic with slight, finer sparkle and didn't emphasize my skin's natural texture. They lasted between eight and nine hours on me with minimal fading over time. As eyeshadows, they performed decently, but a couple of shades had larger flecks of sparkle, which seemed to look more obvious when I tried blending them out as an eyeshadow.

Colour Pop Ever Ever After Disney Designer Cheek & Lip Duo ($18.00 for 0.43 oz.) includes a metallic, rosy copper highlighter and a bright, pink-coral liquid lipstick. The highlighter was fantastic–pigmented, creamy, blendable, and long-wearing–while the liquid lipstick was a bit more pigmented than marketed and could have applied more evenly. Both products can be purchased individually if preferred.

Andalasia

Andalasia is a light, rosy copper with moderate, warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish. The highlighter was richly pigmented with a smooth, creamy texture that was dense without being stiff, so it picked up well with a brush and deposited even color. The product blended out easily on my skin and didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours before fading slightly on me.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.23 oz. - $34.78 Per Ounce

The powder highlighter is supposed to have a "high-shine" finish with "high colour intensity." In general, ColourPop's pressed highlighter powders have a smooth, moderately dense texture that was soft enough to be picked up easily by a brush but not kick up any powder in the pan. The formula was semi-opaque to opaque but easily sheered out for less shine and coverage if desired. There were a few shades within the range that emphasized my skin's natural texture slightly but most did not. The wear ranged from seven and a half hours to nine hours.

Prince Edward

Prince Edward is a bright, medium pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had medium to semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation, but it seemed slightly closer to semi-opaque than true medium coverage. It was harder to determine the coverage as the product did not apply as evenly as I’ve experienced with other shades, though the brighter hue made it less obvious at a normal viewing distance.

The liquid lipstick had a lightweight, thin consistency that was airy and spreadable without being too watery. It dried down to a mostly matte finish on my lips in less than a minute but didn’t dry down on my arm (I waited five minutes!). The color could have applied more evenly, and there was a touch of product that sank into my deeper lip lines as well. It stayed on well for four and a half hours and felt non-drying over time.

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to have "medium buildable coverage" that has a "soft, diffused" effect. It's a more amped up take on their Blotted Lips concept or a slightly "washed out" take on their Ultra Matte/Ultra Satin range. The formula is much thinner--almost weightless--and spreads evenly with a single layer. I'd argue that most shades were often closer to semi-opaque rather than medium and buildable--and I used only what was on the doe-foot applicator to apply (without going back for more) for both top and bottom lips.

The consistency was airier, light, thin, and spreadable with a soft dry down that didn't feel like it was wholly locked in (like Ultra Mattes) but had significantly less transfer than a traditional lipstick (or even the Ulta Satins). They were not the most forgiving of lip texture or lip lines, but they were more flattering than most formulas I've tried that are similar in effect and coverage. Some shades had more of a matte finish shortly after application while others had subtle shine that wore down to a matte finish within an hour or less.

Longevity ran anywhere from three to six hours with some shades leaving subtle stains behind, and the formula felt mostly non-drying for me. It had a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Marc Jacobs Jet Girl O!Mega Glaze All-Over Foil Luminizer Review & Swatches

Jet Girl (82)

Marc Jacobs Beauty Jet Girl (82) O!Mega Glaze All-Over Foil Luminizer ($49.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a brighter, medium coral with warm undertones that seemed balance between pink and orange paired with a high-shine, metallic finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer that applied evenly and blended out effortlessly on my skin.

The powder had a smooth, cream-like texture that felt finely-milled, soft, and sat well on bare skin as it didn’t emphasize my natural texture. The stronger golden shimmer throughout gave it a highlighting blush effect on my skin tone as it read lighter, brighter on the high points and darker, more coral below my cheek bones. It wore beautifully for nine hours on me before fading slightly.

ColourPop x Disney Midnight Masquerade Palette Review & Swatches

Midnight Masquerade

Colour Pop Midnight Masquerade 15-Pan Shadow Palette ($26.00 for 0.53 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that features seven matte eyeshadows, five shimmer eyeshadows, two Pressed Glitters, and one Pressed Pigment (the latter three shades are not intended to be used on the eye area). The eyeshadows performed consistently with ColourPop’s formula: pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. The only shade that I found to be below average was Merryweather, which could have been more pigmented and more blendable.

I couldn’t find any warning/disclosure on the physical palette, though mine is a press sample, but in recent months, ColourPop has denoted shades that have a warning with an asterisk by the shade name and the warning to follow at the bottom of the palette (both on the physical back of the palette as well as the cardboard carton it comes with). Online, the warnings are there within each shade’s respective ingredient list.

Spinning Wheel

Spinning Wheel is a pale, iridescent pink base with flecks of pink-to-violet shifting sparkle over a more pearlescent sheen. The eyeshadow had rich color coverage in a single layer, while the texture felt soft, lightly creamy, and was a bit thicker, which resulted in slight fallout during application. It wore nicely for eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.

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.

Mama Odie

Mama Odie has a pink-peach base with heavy green-to-gold shifting shimmer. I very rarely could see the peachy base, so it was more of a bright, yellowy green at most angles. It had good color payoff but applied better with a fingertip or a dampened brush for full coverage in one layer. The texture was soft, lightly emollient, so the shimmer and powder bound together well. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Djali

Djali is a muted, medium copper with warm, brownish undertones and a metallic sheen. It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, more loosely-pressed consistency that was best used with a lighter hand to minimize excess product getting kicked up in the pan. The eyeshadow applied well to bare skin and blended out evenly. I’d recommend gently pressing it onto the lid to avoid fallout. It lasted nicely for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Floating Lantern has a translucent base with lots of larger particle glitters in hexagonal shapes along with finer glitter particles that flashed from a rosy pink to a cooler, more silvery pink. It had medium to semi-opaque coverage (in the form of glitter) that had good dispersion and adhesion on its own, so there was little glitter migration during application and most of it stayed in place for eight hours.

It includes larger particles of plastic glitter, which are “not intended for use in the immediate eye area,” though the warning doesn’t seem to appear on the actual palette, just online by the list of ingredients.

Mrs. Potts

Mrs. Potts is a rich, medium-dark gold with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow had excellent color payoff that applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of product. The consistency was lightly creamy, dense without being thick, and blended out well. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading a bit.

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.

Royal Ball

Royal Ball is a mixture of larger and finer particles of glitter in shades of white gold with some iridescence over a translucent base. It had semi-opaque “coverage” in the form of glitter and had good dispersion and spreadability. The product adhered well to bare skin with just a touch of migration/fallout. There was some migration if blended out along the edge as some came away from where it was initially applied. There was slight migration of glitter over an eight-hour period.

It includes larger particles of plastic glitter, which are “not intended for use in the immediate eye area,” though the warning doesn’t seem to appear on the actual palette, just online by the list of ingredients.

Gaston

Gaston is a deep red with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer. The texture was soft, slightly thin but seemed to apply without issue as the color blended out easily. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

It is a Pressed Pigment, which is “not intended for use in the immediate eye area,” though the warning doesn’t seem to appear on the actual palette, just online by the list of ingredients.

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.

Quasimodo is a darker brown with subtle, warm redidhs undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in one layer, which was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top.

Merryweather

Merryweather is a deep, faded navy blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that built up to mostly opaque coverage, but I’d recommend using it with primer for full coverage. The consistency was soft, slightly drier with light powderiness in the pan, and it was fairly blendable on my skin. It could have been easier to diffuse, though. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

What’s your process for testing a new fragrance?

I like to try it with one or two sprays (depending on the type of fragrance and the brand; some I have enough experience with to know if they?re weaker/stronger) before going heavier. I like to spray on my forearms and see how I like the scent before spraying more freely (it?s easier for me to...
