Sydney Grace Blaze, Juggler, & Magic Eyeshadow Pressed Pigments Reviews & Swatches

Blaze

Sydney Grace Blaze Pressed Pigment ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-copper with flecks of pink and gold sparkle over a more metallic sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, while the consistency was smooth, more densely and firmly pressed into the pan. It worked best with a flat brush and pressing/patting motions as there was a bit of fallout if I swept the product on. While blending out the edges, I noticed that some of the sparkles came loose, and there were a few stray sparkles that had fallen over the nine hours the color wore well for (before starting to look faded).

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.06 oz. - $100.00 Per Ounce

The shimmer eyeshadows are more consistent in pigmentation with the majority of shades having opaque color coverage. The more metallic/sparkly the shade is, the creamier and more emollient the eyeshadow felt in the pan, which often yielded really smooth application and good adherence to the lid, though a few worked better with a fingertip or a dampened brush for true-to-pan color or to get a truer finish/sheen. Most shades, however, worked well with brushes, and I didn't have trouble applying or blending out most of the shimmer shades. The more satin to pearl like finishes tend to feel a little thinner but blend out well. These shades wore between eight and nine hours on me with some of the more foiled-like shades creasing noticeably at the end (and the less foiled-like ones fading).

Juggler

Sydney Grace Juggler Pressed Pigment ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright, light blue with cool undertones and a bright, metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented where a little went a long way, while the texture was lightly creamy, dense without being too thick or too stiff in the pan, so it was an easy product to work with on bare skin. The color lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Magic Act

Sydney Grace Magic Act Pressed Pigment ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium, pink-purple with subtle, warm undertones and cooler, lavender pearl that gave it a subtle, shimmery finish. The consistency was denser to the touch, smooth but more firmly-pressed into the pan, so it worked better with a more moderate hand but there was no powderiness or fallout to worry about. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly and stayed on well for nine hours on me.

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

Anthem

Colour Pop Anthem Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a darker, coppery brown with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, while the texture was soft, blendable, but a little drier and more loosely-pressed, so there was light fallout during application (I’d recommend applying with a fingertip or a dampened brush to mitigate fallout if that’s a concern). It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably on me.

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.

Sugar Free

Colour Pop Sugar Free Pressed Glitter ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) seemed to have a transparent base that was chocked full of smaller-sized glitter in various hues of pink from light and bright pink to deeper pink. It had semi-opaque “coverage” in a single layer that had good dispersion when applied with a brush or a fingertip. While the product felt glittery to the touch–textured but not scratchy or painful–there was some slip to it that helped it adhere better to skin than truly loose glitter. It wasn’t immune for fallout/migration, so while better than pressed glitter a decade ago, it may still be best applied with an adhesive base if used near the eye area (which is not intended to be used, per the brand).

Ingredients

*Not intended for use in the immediate eye area.

Material Girl

Colour Pop Material Girl Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with moderate, warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle throughout. The texture was dense, almost thick, and more firmly-pressed into the pan, which gave it a stiffer feel overall. It worked better with a flat, firm brush and a more moderate hand to pick up product evenly, and then it applied best by pressing and gently pushing the product into place. The upside was that it “melted” a bit when applied and had great, even adhesion. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

The Most (2019)

Colour Pop The Most (2019) Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium, pinky-lavender with warm undertones and gold shimmer throughout. The consistency was soft, somewhat drier and more powdery in the pan, but it was blendable and easy enough to work with, though I’d recommend pressing into place initially to avoid light fallout. It had opaque color coverage that wore nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

ColourPop Hey Big Spender Lux Lipstick Kit Review & Swatches

Hey Big Spender

Colour Pop Hey Big Spender Lux Lipstick Kit ($12.00 for 0.155 oz.) includes a satiny, blue-based red lipstick with a matte, very blue-based red lip pencil. When layered, the end result was more semi-matte and seemed about as cool-toned as the lipstick was on its own. Both shades were quite pigmented and long-wearing, while the lipstick was–unsurprisingly–more comfortable to wear on its own and was somewhat hydrating.

Million Dollar Baby

Million Dollar Baby is a medium-dark red with cooler undertones and a satin sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without dragging. The texture was lightly creamy, emollient without being slippery, and very lightweight, and the formula smoothed out some of my lip lines as well. This shade stayed on well for over six hours, left a pinkish stain behind, and was lightly hydrating while worn.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.12 oz. - $58.33 Per Ounce

The formula that is supposed to be a "creamy-matte" that "glides on like butter, doesn't feather or bleed, and lasts so long you'll forget you're even wearing it." The majority of the shades were quite pigmented with full color payoff in a single stroke with a few in the more semi-opaque coverage range.

The texture was, on average, smooth, lightly creamy, and not too thick or too thin, so there was no tugging during application but the color didn't feel slippery while worn, which made them easier to apply straight from the tube and low-maintenance on the lips.

They tend to dry and wear down to a soft matte finish within one to three hours of wear, and while they are very lightweight on, they hug the lips more as they become more matte (compared to initial feel). The wear time has been between four and six hours for most shades, and most shades were non-drying to lightly hydrating. They were vanilla-scented but had no discernible taste.

Hot Cakes

Hot Cakes is a vivid, medium-dark red with strong, cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied smoothly and precisely along the edge of my lips. For all-over application, it went on fairly evenly and didn’t tug much, but I’d recommend applying to the lower lip, gently pressing lips together (as this helps distribute the color more comfortably), and then continuing to fill in where necessary. The pencil had a waxy feel, which gave it glide without feeling emollient. It wore well for over six hours on its own, left a stain behind, and was non-drying.

Chantecaille Eclat Brilliant Face Powder Review & Swatches

Eclat Brilliant

Chantecaille Eclat Brilliant Face Powder ($92.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a light-medium gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a luminous sheen. The texture was smooth to the touch, more firmly-pressed into the pan without being stiff to work with, and it felt consistent with similar, gel-powder like formulations.

These type of formulas work better with moderately dense brushes for initially picking up product, while their major advantages are that the powder itself tends to “melt” more when applied to the skin and there’s no powderiness or excess kicked up in the pan.

It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, but it was easy to dial down the coverage if desired since one just needed to use a lighter hand. The highlighter applied well to bare skin, blended out with ease, and didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly on me.

Ingredients

Mica, Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate, Hdi/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer, Squalane, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Glycerin, Polysorbate 20, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan), Xanthan Gum, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Dl-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Silica, Dicalcium Phosphate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Tin Oxide, Titanium Dioxide (Cl 77891), Iron Oxides (Cl 77491)

What's Your Sign

ColourPop What’s Your Sign Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium, peachy beige with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. There were faint sparkles that didn’t bind with the underlying powder, so they disappeared during application. The eyeshadow had a moderately powdery texture, which made it more prone to light fallout and some sheering out. It had opaque coverage initially but had to be built up back up after blending or used over a primer to maximize coverage. This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.

The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage, while the texture was more loosely-pressed so there was a bit of excess product kicked up in the pan if I wasn’t careful to use a lighter hand with the product. It applied evenly to bare skin but had light fallout during application. This shade 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.

Zing

ColourPop Zing Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a muted, light-medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even layer of product that diffused easily along the edges. The texture was soft, a little powdery in the pan, but it was easy to work with and wasn’t prone to fallout. It stayed on well for eight hours before I noticed signs of fading.

Finesse

ColourPop Finesse Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had excellent color coverage that applied well to bare skin and blended out with ease. The texture was soft, lightly powdery in the pan, but it didn’t sheer out too readily on my skin. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Soo Good

ColourPop Soo Good Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark, peachy orange with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was slightly more loosely-pressed, so there was the sense of dryness by touch and some excess product that loosened from the pan when I used it, so I’d recommend using a lighter touch to minimize potential for fallout. The eyeshadow had opaque coverage when applied with a pressing/patting motion on my lid and had a touch of fallout during application. It wore well for eight hours before I noticed slight fading.

TBH

ColourPop TBH Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a soft, muted orange with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had rich color coverage that applied well to bare skin and blended out easily, though the texture was on the more powdery side, and I felt like it looked a bit drier over my lid than other ColourPop shades. There was a bit of excess product kicked up in the pan but the product wasn’t prone to sheering out nor was fallout a concern during application. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

I C U

ColourPop I C U Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark taupe with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in one layer, though it sheered out slightly when applied to bare skin due to the moderately powdery texture. The eyeshadow was soft, blendable, and had some fallout during the initial application. It lasted well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

The Vibez

ColourPop The Vibez Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with warm, brown undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The texture was more loosely-pressed into the pan, which resulted in a product that kicked up a lot of excess in the pan and had moderate fallout during application. I would recommend applying this with fingertips or a dampened in brush, which improved the payoff from medium to mostly opaque and minimized fallout. The color wore well for eight hours but had a touch of fallout over time as well.

ColourPop Put on the Ritz Lux Lipstick Kit Review & Swatches

Put on the Ritz

Colour Pop Put on the Ritz Lux Lipstick Kit ($12.00 for 0.155 oz.) includes a deeper pink with a cream lipstick paired with a more mid-tone, warmer pink pencil liner. The lipstick layered well over the lip pencil, but the color of the lipstick dominated (unsurprisingly) while the pencil mattified the finish slightly. Both products performed consistently with past releases within their respective formulas; they were both pigmented and long-wearing, and the lipstick applied well while the lip pencil went on fairly well all-over and well as a liner.

Bling Ring

Bling Ring is a bright, medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. The lipstick had opaque color coverage that applied fluidly across my lips and didn’t drag. The consistency was creamy, dense without being thick or heavy, and comfortable to wear. There was a bit of separation along my deeper lip line that I could see in the close-up photo but not in person. It stayed on nicely for five and a half hours and was moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.12 oz. - $58.33 Per Ounce

The formula that is supposed to be a "creamy-matte" that "glides on like butter, doesn't feather or bleed, and lasts so long you'll forget you're even wearing it." The majority of the shades were quite pigmented with full color payoff in a single stroke with a few in the more semi-opaque coverage range.

The texture was, on average, smooth, lightly creamy, and not too thick or too thin, so there was no tugging during application but the color didn't feel slippery while worn, which made them easier to apply straight from the tube and low-maintenance on the lips.

They tend to dry and wear down to a soft matte finish within one to three hours of wear, and while they are very lightweight on, they hug the lips more as they become more matte (compared to initial feel). The wear time has been between four and six hours for most shades, and most shades were non-drying to lightly hydrating. They were vanilla-scented but had no discernible taste.

Starship

Starship is a medium, pink-coral with soft, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff in a single stroke, which applied evenly to my lips and didn’t tug much when I applied it all-over. The texture had enough glide that it was workable for filling in my entire lip color, but it was the most comfortable to use as a liner along the edges. It wore well for over six hours and felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.
