ColourPop JujuRouge & Polite Society Lippie Stix

ColourPop JujuRouge Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is described as a “deepened berry red.” It’s a medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had very nearly opaque color coverage–you can see my lip freckle just peeking through–that covered evenly and smoothly. The consistency was lightly creamy and applied without dragging on the lips. It wore well for six and a half hours, left behind a moderate stain, and was slightly drying after four hours of wear. Bobbi Brown Russian Doll (P, $35.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). MAC MAC Red (P, $17.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Colour Pop London Fog (P, $6.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Besame American Beauty 1945 (P, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar).

ColourPop Alchemy Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Alchemy Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop Alchemy Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Alchemy Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “translucent peachy tone.” It’s a light-medium, peachy-orange with warm undertones and a sparkling, glittery finish. It has a “Glitter Sheer” finish, which is nice to read, because it explains the coverage level of this particular shade well–it’s semi-sheer. It was somewhat buildable to semi-opaque coverage, but it is a shade that could be patted over another eyeshadow for a glittery finish or worn all-over the lid as a sparkling wash. I liked it near the inner tear duct for its brightening effect. It wore well for nine and a half hours before creasing slightly, and there was minimal fall out over time (but still, there was a bit). Too Faced Nude Beach (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Pop (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Starry Eyed (LE, $16.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Knight Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft, silky black.” It’s a medium-dark black with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had a thin, lightly velvety texture that glided across the skin well without losing its intensity/opacity. On me, it was still going strong after ten hours of wear. Chanel Tisse Ombre de Lune #4 (P) is lighter (95% similar). Lancome My French #9 (LE) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). LORAC Onyx (LE) is more shimmery, warmer (95% similar).

Giorgio Armani Obsidian (01) (P, $38.00) is darker (95% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Volcano Fairy Wren (P, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Black Sands (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Black Market (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel Tisse Smoky #4 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar).

ColourPop Vanity Fair Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned silvery taupe.” It’s a medium-dark taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth texture that blended beautifully on the skin without losing its initial intensity. The color was still fade- and crease-free after ten hours of wear. MAC Satin Taupe (P, $16.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Underground (DC, $18.00) is darker (90% similar). LORAC Chrome (P) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Force of Nature #1 (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tarte Ring-a-ling (LE) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Earthly (LE, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | ColourPop Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is more like a cream-powder hybrid than traditional cream eyeshadow. If you touch it, the product feels more like a sponge or stiff mousse, as there is light give, but it doesn’t have the same emollient or thickness of traditional cream products. The texture is thinner and is manipulated on the skin more like a powder. The brand says that using fingertips yields the greatest pigmentation, and if you prefer, synthetic brushes, but I find synthetic brushes to work well for applying and still getting great pigmentation out of the majority of shades (typically the very glittery shades are ones where fingertips really do improve them).

ColourPop Brooklyn & So Wavy Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Brooklyn Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright hot pink.” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark warm, fuchsia pink with a semi-matte finish. It was rich color payoff with full coverage that applied evenly. The consistency was thin and then “dried” to a mostly matte finish–less satiny than many others shades in the formula–that was lightly tacky but didn’t lift color when I pressed my lips together. The color was still going strong after seven hours of wear, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC To Matte with Love (P, $20.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). NARS Greta (P, $32.00) is brighter, glossier (90% similar). Tarte So Fetch (P, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). Kat Von D Berlin (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar).

ColourPop Spritz, Botanical, Naked Ladies Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Spritz Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone true bubblegum pink.” It’s a slightly muted, medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a thin, almost runny, texture that was easy to apply and then “set” to a lightly tacky consistency. It sat fairly well on the lips without being heavy, and the color didn’t lift when you press your lips (despite the tackiness). There is minimal transfer, but it isn’t completely dry. The color lasted for six and a half hours on me and was very lightly drying. Maybelline Ravishing Rose (P, $7.99) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Virgin Rose (P, $50.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Silly (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop 1st Base (P, $6.00) is warmer (85% similar). Maybelline Pink Sugar (P, $7.99) is lighter, brighter (85% similar).

ColourPop Hype Girl & Crumpet Lippie Stix

ColourPop Hype Girl Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is described as a “soft coral nude.” It’s a medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. It had mostly opaque coverage, but the consistency was on the thicker side and highlighted the natural texture of the lips. The lipstick gathered into lip lines within the initial two hours of wear, while the color hung around for closer to four altogether. It was lightly drying towards the end. Bobbi Brown Pink Kiss (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Sugarcane (P, $26.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Ace (LE, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar).

ColourPop Summer 2016 Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Belladonna Lilly Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft pastel aqua.” It’s a bright, bluish aqua with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was a little thin and a bit drier than some of the other ColourPop eyeshadows, though not actually dry. I found it hard to layer this one for opaque coverage, unfortunately, even with fingertips. On me, it lasted for ten hours. Make Up For Ever S208 Baby Blue (P, $21.00) is brighter (90% similar). Dior Blue Lagoon (374) Eyeshadow #1 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
