AURIC Entice Smoke Reflect Duo Review & Swatches

Entice Auric Entice Smoke Reflect Eye Shadow Duo ($39.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a new, limited edition powder and cream eyeshadow duo that included a sparkling, white gold powder eyeshadow paired with a rich, olive green cream eyeshadow. The two products performed well and lived up to the brand’s claims; they coordinated together particularly nicely but worked as well alone as they did layered. Ingredients ...

AURIC Disrupt Smoke Reflect Duo Review & Swatches

Disrupt Auric Disrupt Smoke Reflect Eye Shadow Duo ($39.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a new, limited edition duo featuring a sparkling, peach-to-pink duochrome powder topper with a deeper, reddish-plum cream eyeshadow. The two performed in line with how the brand described them, though the texture of the powder seemed overly firm, which made it a little less versatile with respect to best application methods than past powders released in the du...

Danessa Myricks Medallion Colorfix Metallic Review & Swatches

Medallion Danessa Myricks Medallion Colorfix Metallic ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a deeper, orange-red with moderate, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The shimmer was more noticeable when applied as a lip product as it looked more glowing as an eyeshadow and blush. It also looked redder and less coppery when I used it as a blush and eyeshadow, where it was a sheerer application with more blended edges. It had a smooth, lightweight con...

ColourPop Fancy Feathers Super Shock Shadow Duo Review & Swatches

Fancy Feathers ColourPop Fancy Feathers Super Shock Shadow Duo ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a double dose of gold–lighter, peachy gold paired with darker, traditional gold–with sparkly, holiday-driven finishes. Both shades were pigmented, creamy, and blendable with excellent wear, exactly as I’d expect from the Super Shock Shadow formula. Ingredients Fancy Feathers ...

ColourPop Oh That Jazz Super Shock Shadow Duo Review & Swatches

Oh That Jazz ColourPop Oh That Jazz Super Shock Shadow Duo ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) includes cream eyeshadows in light, golden bronze and a sparkling black. I wish ColourPop would utilize the Super Shock Shadow for more “sparkle over matte” kind of formulas, because it works well for them. Both eyeshadows were smooth, emollient, blendable, and long-wearing with full color coverage. Ingredients ...

Chanel Or Ambre & Noir Ombre Premiere Laques Reviews & Swatches

Or Noir (17) Chanel Or Noir (17) Ombre Premiere Laque ($36.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a deeper black with warmer undertones and flecks of gold, lavender, and silver sparkle throughout. It had semi-sheer color coverage in a single layer, and I found it was best applied with a flat, synthetic brush pressed onto the lid for the initial layer. After letting the initial layer dry down, going back in with the included applicator to pat on addition...

Danessa Myricks Blossom & Fantasy Colorfix Foils Reviews & Swatches

Blossom Danessa Myricks Blossom Colorfix Foils ($18.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is a brighter, medium plum base with warm, reddish undertones and cooler flecks of blue and violet sparkle throughout. The effect can be really lovely–sparkly, shiny, and full of dimension–but the trick is trying to get the product to apply evenly and maintain its coverage. I find that addition of sparkle to the foils can make them harder to apply evenly, so my ...

ColourPop Trio of Terror Jelly Much Shadow Trio Review & Swatches

Trio of Terror ColourPop Trio of Terror Jelly Much Shadow Trio ($28.00 for 0.51 oz.) is a new, limited edition trio of cream eyeshadows. They are also available individually for $10 each. All three shades were pigmented, blendable, and pretty easy to use, as they are fluid and cream-like initially but don’t dry down too quickly (nor too slowly), and once they’re on, they are very long-wearing. Note: readers have reported issues with t...

ColourPop Koosh, Donna, Rest More Super Shock Shadows Reviews & Swatches

Koosh ColourPop Koosh Super Shock Shadow ($6.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light, golden beige base with flecks of more silvery-beige shimmer and faint sparkle. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out beautifully. The texture was smooth to the touch, emollient but not overly so, which enabled the product to spread and blend but not become patchy. It lasted well for 10 hours without fading or...

Danessa Myricks Exposed Colorfix Matte Review & Swatches

Exposed Danessa Myricks Exposed Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a muted, medium taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It looked grayer and more like a true taupe when worn at higher coverage; the warmth was more noticeable whenever it was blended and sheered out a fair amount. The product had rich color payoff in a single layer, which was easy to spread about and blend as an eyeshadow and blush. The tex...

Danessa Myricks Spicey Colorfix Matte Review & Swatches

Spicey Danessa Myricks Spicey Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a medium, reddish-plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy without being too runny or too thin, which helped it maintain its opacity if desired but kept it being spreadable and blendable. The formula was quick to dry down, so I found that it was imperative to use a lot less product than necessary–as it was intensel...

ColourPop Pressed, Venus Slipper, U Grow Girl Colour Stix Reviews & Swatches

Pressed ColourPop Pressed Metallic Colour Stix ($6.00 for 0.023 oz.) is a brighter, medium berry with cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, though it was a thinner, slightly clingier formula so it wasn’t as comfortable to apply and to layer up on the lid (but was more comfortable as an eyeliner). It lasted for seven hours before creasing on me.FURTHER READING: ...

Danessa Myricks Olive You Colorfix Matte Review & Swatches

Olive You Danessa Myricks Olive You Colorfix MatteDanessa Myricks Olive You Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a light-medium olive with warmer undertones and a matte finish. The texture seemed slightly more emollient, which made it easier to blend than other shades but made it slightly more prone to sheering out. I was able to apply a little more where needed to build up coverage, though. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmenta...

Danessa Myricks Rose Royal Colorfix Matte Review & Swatches

Rose Royal Danessa Myricks Rose Royal Colorfix MatteDanessa Myricks Rose Royal Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a deep red with moderate, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer where a little went a very long way, so it was always better to use less and build up coverage–which was very doable–rather than try the reverse. I’d recommend using fluffy, synthetic or duo-fiber brushes, which...

Sydney Grace Black Hole & Forest Floor Cream Shadows Reviews & Swatches

Black Hole Sydney Grace Black Hole Cream Shadow (2020) ($8.00 for 0.34 oz.) has a darker gray base with flecks of larger silver sparkle over a more metallic finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage that applied at its best and most evenly when worn at high coverage. I found it harder to apply and blend out the edge without getting some fallout (initially) and the base didn’t appear as even. The texture was smooth, thin, and spread...

It has a smooth consistency that was creamy without being too thick or too thin, so it wasn’t runny but it wasn’t stiff to work with. It was intensely pigmented where a little went a long way, so adjusting and learning to use the smallest amount possible was the b...

Chanel Fall 2021 Ombre Premiere Laques Reviews & Swatches

Lame Ivoire (39) Chanel Lame Ivoire (39) Ombre Premiere Laque ($36.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a darker, champagne gold with warm, golden tones but not to the point of leaning orange/peach. It had a smooth, fluid consistency that was slightly watery initially, but then it dried down to a more transfer-resistant finish. I liked applying this best with a fingertip or a fluffy brush for a sheerer wash of color. For higher opacity, I’d recommend...

ColourPop I'm Wishing, How Far I'll Go, Beauty & the Beast, Once Upon a Dream Super Shock Shadows Reviews & Swatches

I'm Wishing ColourPop I’m Wishing Super Shock Shadow seemed to have a more transparent base with flecks of white, silver, and iridescent pink shimmer and micro-sparkle. I’d consider this more of a topper kind of shade or what one might reach for if they wanted a wash of iridescent sparkle all over the lid. The texture was emollient to the touch, lightweight, and thin with good spreadability for an even layer of semi-sheer to medi...

It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation paired with a smooth, lightly emollient consistency. The formula felt like a cream initially but dried down to a more powder-like finish, so it was still flexible and blendable after it set but was longer-w...

ColourPop Reflection, Touch the Sky, Colors of the Wind, Down in New Orleans Super Shock Shadows Reviews & Swatches

Reflection ColourPop Reflection Super Shock Shadow is a darker, coppery-brown base with flecks of fine red and gold sparkle throughout. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied somewhat unevenly as the base seemed to clump up a bit, so it was harder to get a really nice, even layer that didn’t look unblended. The texture was more emollient than the average shade within this formula as well. It lasted decently for nine hours be...

ColourPop Under the Sea, Arabian Nights, I See the Light, A Dream is a Wish... Super Shock Shadows Reviews & Swatches

Under the Sea ColourPop Under the Sea Super Shock Shadow is a cool, minty green with a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a tendency to sheer out as it seemed to have too much slip, which also resulted in it looking uneven. I had the best luck applying it with a fluffier brush for a sheerer layer of color but couldn’t use it as a more opaque product well. It lasted decently for nine hours before fading a bit.FURTHE...

Mongal Smashbox Mongal Always On Cream EyeshadowSmashbox Mongal Always On Cream Eyeshadow ($22.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a medium purple with subtle, warm pink undertones and a matte finish. This shade was very prone to sheering out as the texture was very gel-like, so it was quick to spread, just didn’t leave behind an even layer of product at all. I was able to take that semi-sheer to medium coverage and build up, but the texture of the ...

The palette listed three of the matte shades as “CP” or Cream-Powder, but they seemed like Creamy Mattes to me (and definitely NOT Cream-Powders!), though I’m trying to get confirmation f...

I also found that getting it onto the back of my hand and then picking up product helped to reduce the slip and slide of ...

It had sheer color payoff, which was only buildable to semi-sheer pigmentation, but it was uneven in its application and difficult to blend out without it looking more uneven. The texture was fairly smooth but seemed to have too much glide, which may have been the issue. Thi...

They were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing and performed consistently with the Super Shock Shadow fo...

I found the shift harder to detect and less dimensional than one might have expected, unfortunately. The texture was very watery, thin, and the larger particles tended to clump up whenever I used a fingertip to apply or blend out. With a brush, it was ...
