Laura Mercier Artist's Palette for Eyes
Laura Mercier Artist’s Palette for Eyes

Laura Mercier Artist’s Palette for Eyes ($55.00 for 0.36 oz.) seems to have been re-released! I reviewed this here (November 2013), and it was one of the better-selling holiday palettes. Thought I would pass it along that it appears to be back at Sephora with the same packaging and shade range according to the image and accompanying description! (It looked familiar, but I was hoping it was totally new!)

ColourPop Hello Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop Hello Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Hello Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft pastel yellow in a matte finish.” It’s a brightened, light yellow with a white base and matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation and had a drier texture that tended to pill. It didn’t feel dried out per se in the pot, but it just didn’t have the same blendability or slide of the majority of the range. I couldn’t get the color to go on completely smoothly, unfortunately. It started to crease after eight hours of wear. Colour Pop One & Done (LE, $5.00) is more beige. Makeup Geek Mirage (LE, $5.99) is darker. NARS Misfit #1 (P, $24.00) is darker, more beige. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop In a Pickle Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “pastel coral pink in a matte finish.” It’s a softened, light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on evenly, but it was a little drier in how it looked on the skin where it almost balled up in places and wasn’t as blendable. It wore well for nine hours before creasing. Hourglass Monochrome #3 (P) is lighter. Make Up For Ever S800 Grenadine (P, $21.00) is slightly darker. Chanel Palpitation (104) (LE, $29.50) is darker, cooler-toned. Chanel Quadrille #3 (LE) is slightly darker. MAC Early Bird (LE, $16.00) is brighter, darker. MAC Dear Cupcake (LE, $16.00) is pinker. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Daddy Super Shock Pressed Pigment ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned vibrant violet in a matte finish.” It’s a lightly brightened, medium-dark purple with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had decent pigmentation but wasn’t fully pigmented. I didn’t realize this was a Pressed Pigment (which means it is “not intended for use in the immediate eye area”) until I went to write up the review–it just didn’t seem vibrant enough to make me double check–so I went back and swatched/tested it as a blush as well (after having mistakenly used it as an eyeshadow). As a blush, it was fairly blendable but doesn’t feel quite as velvety and easy to use as the actual Super Shock Cheek formula. It lasted for eight and a half hours on my cheeks. Colour Pop Liaison (LE, $5.00) is darker. Maybelline Painted Purple (P, $6.99) is cooler-toned. Inglot #379 (P, $6.00) is darker. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Clinique Cheek Pops ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) now come in eight more shades! It’s one of my favorite powder blush formulas, so I was thrilled to see them expand the range from four to twelve, but I was even more excited to find them to be as high-performing as the original four shades. There are a lot of great things about the formula, but my personal favorite is the luminous finish that gives the skin a real glow without looking shimmery, frosted, or shiny. All of the new shades had good color payoff, long-wear, superior blendability, and were very easy to use. The weakest part of the range is how dupable many shades are, so you may find you already have similar shades in your stash from other brands. You can’t go wrong with any of the shades, and I would happily use any of the twelve. I think it’s going to come down to your own preference for color and undertone and what you might reach for more. I would love to see an almost highlighter-like shade (something champagne/beige), neutral medium rosy brown, and a cool plummy-taupe next, please and thank you!

>> GET SIDE-BY-SIDE SWATCHES OF ALL SHADES HERE! <<

WARM UNDERTONES: Cola Pop (A+), Fig Pop (A+), Ginger Pop (A), Melon Pop (A-), Nude Pop (A), Peach Pop (A)
COOL UNDERTONES: Berry Pop (A), Heather Pop (A-), Pansy Pop (A-), Pink Pop (A+), Plum Pop (A), Rosy Pop (A)
