MAC Drank the Love Potion, Frantic Romantic, Mocha Swirl Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches

Drank the Love Potion MAC Drank the Love Potion Lipglass ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark red with cooler undertones and a smattering of fuchsia and pink pearl throughout a more cream-like finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly but settled into my lip lines enough to be noticeable in person (despite having a very high-shine finish). The texture was smooth, moderately tacky, and a little thicker, which...

Charlotte Tilbury The Golden Goddess Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

The Golden Goddess Charlotte Tilbury The Golden Goddess Eyeshadow Quad ($53.00 for 0.18 oz.) released in the past year–I managed to miss it!–and is a a warm-toned neutral palette with all shimmer shades. The quality was fairly consistent with past quads by the brand, though the formula wasn’t as good as it gets in the larger palettes the brand has released in the last couple of years. Ingredients ...

Charlotte Tilbury Nudegasm Face Palette Review & Swatches

Nudegasm Charlotte Tilbury Nudegasm Glowgasm Face Palette ($75.00 for 0.52 oz.) includes two shimmery shades and two matte shades; the latter two being designed for contouring/bronzing. The consistency of the two sculpting shades felt thinner and stiffer compared to most gel-powder hybrid formulas, though the other two powders were more yielding and more in line with the dense/slightly stiff (but not in a bad way!) expected from a gel...

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...

ColourPop New Millennium Palette Review & Swatches

New Millennium ColourPop New Millennium 5-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, pink and purple-themed palette that included three matte shades and two shimmer shades. The mattes were pigmented, blendable, and easy to work with, even if a little powdery, while the shimmers were thicker and drier, which made them hard to apply without using them with a wet brush. Ingredients ...

In the bag I have, my additional products were: Amber Jewels eyeshadow (from Autumn’s Reign) and Flower Crown (new blush). The quality was consistent with the brand’s formulas ov...

ColourPop Still Loading Super Shock Highlighter Review & Swatches

Still Loading ColourPop Still Loading Super Shock Cheek (Highlighter) ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, rosy lavender with cooler undertones and a luminous sheen. The texture was smooth, emollient to the touch, and quick to turn to a more powder-like finish once it came into contact with my skin. It had semi-sheer color coverage applied with a brush and medium coverage with a fingertip, but it was hard to achieve fully opaque coverage ...

ColourPop Just a Flush Cheek Palette Review & Swatches

Just a Flush ColourPop Just a Flush 4-Pan Cheek Palette ($18.00 for 0.3 oz.) is a lighter-leaning set of shades that includes a cream-to-powder highlighter, powder bronzer, and two powder blushes. The highlighter performed the best for me, while the blushes could have been more blendable/easier to work with, especially over bare skin. In my experience, ColourPop’s powder blush formula has a really smooth, silky consistency that can b...

ILIA Songbird Nightlite Bronzing Powder Review & Swatches

Songbird ILIA Songbird NightLite Bronzing Powder ($34.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation, though it had plenty of pigmentation and wouldn’t be something I’d consider to be that buildable — you definitely have to consciously use a light hand to do so. It had a soft, lightly powdery texture that was finely-milled and blendable on...

ColourPop Extra Glazed Cheek Palette Review & Swatches

Extra Glazed ColourPop Extra Glazed 4-Pan Cheek Palette ($12.00 for 0.3 oz.) includes one cream highlighter, one shimmery powder blush, and two matte blushes: champagne gold, pearly mid-tone pink, brighter, matte pink, and matte, rosy brown. They were fairly as-marketed with respect to pigmentation; the blushes were more buildable and hard to over-apply, though they had enough payoff to show up on skin. I found that the texture of ...

ColourPop Rumor Has It Palette Review & Swatches

Rumor Has It ColourPop Rumor Has It 5-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is an aqua and blue-hued color story that included three matte shades and two shimmer shades. It was a poor performing palette from the brand; while one shade was exceptionally nice, the rest were lesser with three being particularly disappointing. Rumor Has It P ...

You Can Just Use Hair Gel to Get the Instagram Angry Cat Eyebrow

Marc Jacobs Beauty Socialeyes Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Socialeyes (780) Marc Jacobs Beauty Socialeyes (780) Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette ($49.50 for 0.21 oz.) is a neutral palette that has a slightly more neutral-to-cool lean until you get to the brighter, yellow gold that contrasts a lot with the other shades in the palette. The quality of the eyeshadows was good; they were pigmented, blendable, and lasted around eight hours on average. The worst shade was the deepest sha...

This is the Light version of the bag, and I don’t have the Deep version, so I am not sure what...

It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly without streaking but settled noticeably into my lip lines. The consistency was light-medium in thickness, lightweight, and comfortable to apply and spread, though it had moderate tackiness. ...

Sydney Grace First Date Blush Review & Swatches

First Date Sydney Grace First Date Pressed Blush ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a light, peachy orange with strong, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The finish was glowing while being quite smooth, so it was more of a glow than an overt shimmer. The consistency was lightly creamy, dense without being heavy, thick, or too firmly-pressed into the pan, which made it easy to pick up with an assortment of brushes. It was extremely pigment...

The texture was smooth, lightweight, and spreadable as it felt more like a gel-cream, so it worked well over bare skin as we...

For those who don’t already have a plethora of ColourPop palettes, it might appeal, but there was a fair amount of overlap with past releases (more current and further in the past). The performance is consistent with more rece...

It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer more on top. The texture was soft, smooth, and velvety with a smidgen of powderiness; it wasn’t quite as velvety as other shades in the recently repackaged/released Bronzing Powder range, but it was much...
