Sephora I’m Quite Tipsy (08) Colorful Blush

Sephora I’m Quite Tipsy (08) Colorful Blush ($14.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “dark purple.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark magenta pink with cool, blue undertones and a mostly matte finish. NARS Angelika (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Viseart Rose #3 (P, ) is darker, brighter (95% similar). Makeup Geek Rendezvous (P, $10.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Sweet Sentiment (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Starscape (LE, $30.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Bright Pink (P, $16.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Let's Be Friends (LE, $22.00) is brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Homie (DC, $8.00) is brighter, cooler (85% similar). Anastasia Basically (P, ) is warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Mochi (DC, $8.00) is lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Coin Purse (LE, $8.00) is lighter (85% similar). LORAC Unashamed (LE, ) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC This Could Be Fun (LE, $22.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Pie (DC, $8.00) is darker, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Colorful Blush formula is supposed to be long-wearing, buildable, and have a lightweight texture. My experience with the formula–generally–has shown that they’re soft, lightly powdery at times (some are worse than others) with semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage that blends fairly well and lasts seven to eight hours. There is some variance between shades, but there are some gems in the range. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff. The texture was a little thin and firmer in the pan than many other blushes in the range, which made it harder to blend on the skin when I tried using it (both for swatch photos as well as when I tested it for wear). The color stayed on well for eight hours.

Sephora Oh My Gosh (10) Colorful Blush ($14.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “red.” It’s a bright, medium-dark orange with strong, warm red undertones and a matte finish. It’s more orange than it is red, though. Colour Pop Girl Power (LE, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel Duo N. 02 (Bottom) (LE, ) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

There is some variance between shades, but there are some gems in the range. It was intensely pigmented; I wouldn’t describe as a buildable formula at all, because even the barest touch of the brush results is very strong coverage. The consistency is lightly dusty, not too thin or too dense, and blends fairly well but could be a little easier to diffuse and even out on the skin. The color stayed on for eight and a half hours before fading.

Sephora + Pantone Universe Modern Watercolors Eyeshadow Palette

Sephora + Pantone Universe Modern Watercolors Eyeshadow Palette
Sephora + Pantone Universe Modern Watercolors Eyeshadow Palette

Sephora + Pantone Universe Modern Watercolors Eyeshadow Palette ($39.00 for 0.72 oz.) includes 24 eyeshadows in various pastel hues. It’s a new, limited edition palette created for the Color of the Year collection (which features two colors, Rose Quartz and Serenity). While it’s interesting, and there are plenty of shades that we don’t see all that often in it, the performance leaves a lot to be desired. The shimmers tended to be the better performers, while the lighter mattes were the more disappointing shades. In general, the formula is dusty, dry, or powdery (and sometimes chalky, due to some shades having a stronger white base), which in turn results in the eyeshadow sheering out or applying unevenly. The wear was five to six hours with the majority of shades. I’ve had better luck with past iterations of this collaboration, but this was a miss for me. Sephora said that it was supposed to include the Sephora Collection’s “high performance formulas” that had “rich color payoff” and a “luxurious feel,” plus “long-wear,” but nothing about these reminds me of their single eyeshadow range at all.

BOTTOM LINE: There are a lot of fun shades in the palette, but it’s really only functional over a creamy, white base (like NYX Milk) in order to get the eyeshadows to pop, apply evenly, and blend nicely. I find regular primer is typically too thin and doesn’t do enough for the intensity unless it is a thicker, more cream-like primer, but something very light or white is still the best way to go.

Bright White is a bright white with a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a soft, fairly smooth texture that applied decently. It lasted for six and a half hours on me. Sephora Starlight (LE, )(100% similar). Kat Von D Por Vida (LE, ) is brighter (95% similar). Inglot #373 (P, $6.00) is brighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Skull (LE, )(100% similar). LORAC Tails & Top Hats #1 (LE, $19.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Kat Von D Banshee (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). LORAC White (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Rose Quartz is a pale pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation but was a little powdery, so it tended to apply unevenly on the lid. I think a regular primer would improve the application (a white base won’t bring out the color that much, since it is already quite light). It wore well for six hours. Pretty Vulgar Tweet (P, ) is darker (95% similar). bareMinerals Aaah (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Studio (LE, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). LORAC Pink Cream (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Pale, Please (LE, $16.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Urban Decay Truth (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar).

Honeydew is a light-medium aqua with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer color payoff with a dusty consistency that applied unevenly and was hard to retain any intensity at all on bare skin. It had faded within five hours. LORAC Eggs Benny (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Inglot #367 (P, $6.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Aqua (P, $16.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Ash is a light-medium, purpled gray with cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was on the thin, powdery side, which made this hard to apply without a good primer underneath, as it would go on unevenly and accentuate the texture of the skin. It wore for five and a half hours. LORAC Valet (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Mist (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Makeup Geek Sand Dollar (P, $6.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Colour Pop Mirage (LE, $5.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chinois Green is a muted, medium blue with fine gold shimmer. The shimmer tended to blend beyond the underlying base color, so it is messier to blend and work with. The texture was thin and dusty, which also resulted in the overall color sheering out easily. It wore for five hours before fading. Laura Mercier Mist (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Dior Blue Lagoon (374) Eyeshadow #4 (LE, ) is darker, brighter (85% similar). Dior Peacock (434) Eyeshadow #4 (LE, ) is darker, warmer (80% similar).

Oyster Mushroom is a soft, silvery gray with neutral-to-cool undertones and a frosted finish.

Coral Haze is a lightly brightened, medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was thin and dusty, which resulted in sheerer coverage and poor application.

It lasted for five hours on me. Urban Decay Metamorphosis (LE, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Heroine (LE, $16.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sephora + Pantone Universe Rose Quartz & Serenity Lipsticks

Sephora + Pantone Universe Rose Quartz Lipstick
Sephora + Pantone Universe Rose Quartz Lipstick

Sephora + Pantone Universe Rose Quartz Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, pastel pink with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin finish. It was mostly opaque in coverage, though there’s a translucency throughout where the natural lip color may enhance the pink tones or darken the overall color. It is extremely white-based and feels almost chalky on; I would recommend applying this with a lip brush to get really even edges, as the creamier, thicker consistency yielded jagged edges for me. It applied more evenly than I would have expected, though the color gathers in lip lines over time. The color lasted for three hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Lazy Lullaby (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). MAC Weekend 1 (LE, $17.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Vivid Image (LE, $17.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sephora + Pantone Universe Serenity Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium, periwinkle blue with cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered fairly evenly, though it could have been smoother overall. The texture had a lot of slip, so it slides around easily and would greatly benefit from a lip liner or primer, as it only lasted for two hours before it had significantly migrated into lip lines and looked like a mess. I was surprised at the overall pigmentation–no copping out here in the name of Serenity–but I wish it was less white-based and had less slip. It was neither drying nor hydrating on me. If you layer it to minimize the strength of the blue, I’d recommend pairing with something matte and patting it on top (vs. wearing it as the base) to avoid a lot of the pitfalls of the texture. NYX Earl Grey (P, $6.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Dew (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Kat Von D Dagger (P, $20.00) is darker, less glossy (80% similar).
