Recently, ColourPop launched seven new shades of their Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) and four new shades of their Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.). You might notice Flitter from some recent reviews. I’m hoping to write full reviews for these sooner rather than later, but just in case I’m slow, here are swatches!

MAC Pick Me Pick Me, Model Behavior, On and On, Pink You Think? Lipsticks

MAC Pick Me, Pick Me Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is an icy, smoky lavender with cool undertones and a sparkly finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff, which wasn’t part of the description. It may work better as a layering shade, though the shimmer spread across the lips evenly, which made it wearable as a standalone shade. The color lasted for two and a half hours on me but was neither drying nor hydrating. Too Faced Unicorn Tears (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Cultive (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Pervette (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar).

Viseart Highlight/Sculpt (01) Highlight and Sculpt Palette

Viseart Highlight/Contour (01) Blush Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a six-pan blush palette that is the same size (and contains the same amount) as the eyeshadow palettes. It comes in a black plastic compact with a clear lid. The highlighting shades are on the left, while the contouring shades are on the right. The formula used for the highlighters is really nice–dense, buttery, and blendable–and feels similar to their shimmery eyeshadows, while the formula used for the contour powders is more like the powder blush formula. The formula is supposed to “apply seamlessly” and have “sheer to fuller coverage.” Generally, the pigmentation was buildable from medium coverage, fairly blendable, and long-wearing (eight to nine hours); I only had issues with the two deeper contour shades, as they weren’t as easily blended and diffused on the skin as the other four shades. Unfortunately, that accounts for 1/3 of the palette being problematic, and at this price point, that’s likely to be a deal-breaker.

Sneak Peek: Dior Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadows Photos & Swatches

Dior Fusion (764) Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow
Dior Fusion (764) Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow

Dior Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.06 oz.) is a new powder eyeshadow formula for fall that is available in six shades. I’ve only seen them on Dior’s website, and I actually picked up one shade (Gravity) from Selfridge’s as it is out of stock on Dior’s website. Initially, I thought they were a wet/dry formula, so I swatched them dry and then damp. They are designed to have a “lustrous finish” with “unprecedented shine.” Full reviews to come, but here are swatches:
