ColourPop Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Super Shock Cheek

In February, ColourPop Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) released in twenty shades from peach to fuchsia. I haven’t had much time with these yet, so I don’t have any insight to share quite yet (I’m wrapping up testing NARS’ formula, then I’ll move on to this one!). Hopefully I can start posting a review for a shade or two later this week or next. :) The formula is designed to be similar to the Super Shock Shadows, which means it is a firmer, cream-based product (no depotting!)–the brand does say that fingertips result in highest coverage, flat synthetic brushes have “more coverage” than duo fiber brushes, which will have “sheer, air brushed” coverage. All of these have already been added to the Swatch Gallery for easy comparisons.

Too Faced Melted Villain Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick
Too Faced Melted Villain Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick

Too Faced Melted Villain Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “black plum.” It’s a blackened purple with reddish-violet undertones and a glossy, cream finish. Colour Pop Feminist (P, $5.00) is more matte, darker. NYX Betrayal (P, $6.00) is lighter, more shimmery. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pagan (P, $18.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Potent Fig (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Smoked Purple (LE, $16.00) is lighter, more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It was intensely pigmented, and the color goes on evenly and smoothly–more impressive given it is a more emollient formula that could easily have turned streaky. It’s a deeper shade, and while the edges are surprisingly clean even without a lip brush, I think a lip brush or going back and cleaning-up the edge is a must for this shade. It’s comfortable to wear and is lightly hydrating over time. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably, though I noticed some feathering along the upper lip line after the fifth hour of wear.

Temptalia Asks You

What beauty advice would you give your younger self if you could? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerWEAR SUNSCREEN!!!!! Followed by, “Consider moisturizing and cleansing your face on a daily basis.” I got into beauty/makeup when I went to college, but before then, I didn’t have a skincare routine at all. I’m sure I had cleanser and the like, but it wasn’t a routine.

Thanks to Telesilla for today’s question! Do you have a question idea? Submit yours here.
