Peachy Keen

ColourPop Peachy Keen Super Shock Shadow Quad ($18.00 for 0.28 oz.) includes four warm-toned neutrals. Three of the shades are ones we’ve seen before; only Kennedy is new (at least, I can’t recall that one). All four performed well, and they coordinated well with enough contrast and variety of finishes to create a few looks out of them.

La Vie En Rose

Catrice La Vie En Rose Illuminating Blush ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a soft, satiny sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a soft, lightly dusty texture that was very blendable but did sheer out a bit on the skin. I expect that lighter skin tones will find it easy to work with it, as the coverage was forgiving, but it may not have enough depth for deeper skin tones (I hope Catrice will consider adding deeper shades to their range!).

The Illuminating Blush formula is supposed to have a mix of “subtle shimmer” and a “light pearl” that adds color and a “soft glow” to the cheeks. Of the three shades that exist, I felt like this one was truest to that description, as the finish was soft, satiny but had a visible sheen overall. The blush started to fade after seven and a half hours on me.

Just Peachy

ColourPop Just Peachy Liquid Lipstick Trio ($15.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) includes three shades of liquid lipstick–two are in the Ultra Matte formula and one is in the Ultra Satin formula. The Ultra Mattes were better than some of the recent releases I’ve tried, but Instigator did have slight “cracking” when I smiled. What was fun about this set was it went to show just how different products can look outside of their tubes–they almost looked alike in the group shot but on, the differences are magnified.

Catnap

ColourPop Cat Nap Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark copper with hints of pink and copper sparkle over a metallic finish. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was not very buildable, unfortunately. This is a shade that would work best as an all-over wash of color or patted on top of another, more opaque eyeshadow to add sparkle and shine. I didn’t see any indication that was designed to be sheer on ColourPop’s website, as sometimes they release glittery, sheer shades. The texture was smooth, lightly wet, and blendable on the skin, and the eyeshadow wore for ten hours with minimal fallout.

This shade along with Puppy Love are both charity products, where all proceeds from the sale of both shades will be donated to “Best Friends Animal Society and their NKLA effort to Save Them All.” (All proceeds is always nice to see!)

Coral Me Maybe

Catrice Coral Me Maybe Illuminating Blush ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a pop of light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and fine, flecks of gold shimmer strewn on top of a more matte finish. It appeared more satiny on the skin, once I had a chance to blend and buff the powder onto my cheeks, but it definitely had a subtler finish, which would make it ideal for someone who doesn’t like a lot of noticeable shimmer in their cheek color.

The Illuminating Blush formula is supposed to have a mix of “subtle shimmer” and a “light pearl” that adds color and a “soft glow” to the cheeks. The consistency was soft but powdery, a little drier and looser overall, so it was prone to sheering out and was harder to build-up coverage from its naturally medium coverage level, but it was possible with three to four layers. I noticed fading around the edges after six and a half hours of wear.

I Am Nuts About You

Catrice I Am Nuts About You Illuminating Blush ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a muted, light-medium peach with a hint of pink and a mostly matte finish. There were a few visible sparkles within the pan of powder to my eye, but it looked matte applied to the skin. I expect that this will work best on lighter skin tones and will not show up well on deeper skin tones due to the muted quality and lighter color. I am light-medium in color and get a hint of color, for reference.

The Illuminating Blush formula is supposed to have a mix of “subtle shimmer” and a “light pearl” that adds color and a “soft glow” to the cheeks. It had good color payoff, which was buildable from semi-opaque to opaque, but it was just on the lighter side of the spectrum. The upside is that it should be forgiving and easy to wear on even the fairest of skin tones, and the pink tinge will make it work across more undertones as well. The consistency was soft, a touch dusty, but blendable on the cheeks. On me, the color lasted for seven hours before fading noticeably.
