L’Oreal Colour Riche Eyeshadows (Part 2)

L'Oreal Petite Perle Colour Riche Eyeshadow
L’Oreal Petite Perle Colour Riche Eyeshadow

L’Oreal Colour Riche Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be “soft, velvety” in texture with “intense pigments for exquisite color richness” and “lasts all day.” The texture is incredibly soft; to the point where I’m not sure these would travel as well as your average powder eyeshadow. The lighter, more matte shades are very white-based and can look chalky on my skin tone but should work better on fairer skin tones or coupled with a smoothing primer. Most of the shades were fairly pigmented and blendable on the lid with good adhesion without a primer with a few exceptions. Unsurprisingly, neutrals were more consistently higher-performing than the bolder/more colorful shades. I did run into wear issues, as all the shades I tried either faded and/or creased within six hours of wear, so I would recommend a primer with these. Initially, they reminded me of formulas like Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow, Kat Von D Metal Crush, etc., but while these have a similar velvety, smooth feel, they are looser once you touch your brush to them.

L’Oreal Petite Perle Colour Riche Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a light white with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a fairly smooth texture, but it was harder to apply on the lid without it applying unevenly (almost like the color bunched up/thickened in places). The color started to crease after six hours of wear. Sephora + Pantone Universe Antique White (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Crystal Avalanche (DC, $16.00) is cooler, better quality (95% similar). NARS Rue Allent (Left) (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Cobalt Rush #1 (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).

L’Oreal Green Promenade Colour Riche Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, dark green with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had a really soft, lightly loosened consistency in the pan, so there was some fall out during application, but it adhered well enough that I didn’t have issues with further fall out during wear (though it creased after six hours). bareMinerals Midnight Luminance (LE, ) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Sweet & Sour #2 (P, $21.00) is warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Peacock (P, $12.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). MAC Silver Sun (P, $20.00) is warmer (80% similar).

L’Oreal Teal Couture Colour Riche Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark green-teal with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had a drier, firmer texture that made it harder to get decent color payoff out of it. I also had issues with applying it to my lid, as it didn’t seem to blend out without becoming patchy/uneven. Urban Decay Junkie (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Fringe (P, ) is cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Watt (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

MAC Shimmermoss (DC, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

L’Oreal Grand Bleu Colour Riche Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark blue with cool undertones and a pearly sheen.

Coloured Raine Blue Magic (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Kat Von D Nebula (LE, $21.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

L’Oreal Meet Me in Paris Colour Riche Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark gray with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish.

Kat Von D Smoke (Contour) (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 14 (LE, ) is lighter, cooler (95% similar).

L’Oreal Noir C’est Noir Colour Riche Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark black with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good color payoff paired with a fairly soft consistency that felt a little dry compared to other shades in the range, but it still blended out without too much effort. The color looked faded after six hours of wear. Viseart Chroma #3 (P, )(100% similar). Make Up For Ever M100 Black (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar).

ColourPop Littlestitious & Molly Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Littlestitious Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Littlestitious Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Littlestitious Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “pastel dusty pink.” It’s a muted, light-medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque color payoff with a smooth, lightly creamy, thin consistency that applied evenly. The color wore well for six and a half hours without being drying. It’s a much lighter version of Dopey (which is too much darker to be considered a dupe, but I just wanted to point it out). MAC Really Me (P, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). Bite Beauty Cava (P, $26.00) is cooler, glossier (95% similar). Bite Beauty Cava (P, $24.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Fame (LE, $5.00) is less pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Cava (LE, $24.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Last Call (LE, $5.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Bianca (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer, less glossy (85% similar). Bite Beauty Cava (P, $24.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar).

Bite Beauty Sugarcane (P, $26.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Shimmy (DC, $6.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Molly Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone plum lilac.” It’s a medium, pinky-lavender with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had rich color payoff with a thin consistency that spread across the lips evenly, and then it dried down to a satin finish that had minor transfer. The color lasted for seven hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. Urban Decay ZZ (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Violate (P, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Pepper (DC, $5.00) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). MAC Men Love Mystery (P, $17.00) is darker (80% similar). Bite Beauty Gin Fizz (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). Makeup Geek Troublemaker (P, $12.00) is darker, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | ColourPop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “lightweight, bold lipstick with a satin finish” that is “extra intense colour saturation” and “long-wearing,” but the brand is quick to note that it is “not completely kiss proof.” The consistency is very light to lightweight with a thin to mousse-like consistency–they feel a little heavier going on than the Ultra Matte formula, but they don’t feel heavy on. They dry down somewhat, but it isn’t a full, flat dry down like matte liquid lipsticks, and when you press your lips together, there is moderate tackiness there, but I didn’t notice any lifting or separating of color by doing so. Thus far, they have been extremely long-wearing and comfortable to wear for the most part–it’s after ten hours or so that I notice my lips feeling a little dry–but six hours into wear and the colors have looked good post-meals/post-drinking. I think if you like the idea of longer-wearing, mostly matte lip color but find most liquid lipsticks too drying or too flat while not needing an ultra-hydrating formula, you might like these.

ColourPop Bianca Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Bianca Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft mauve pink.” It’s a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had fully opaque color payoff with a thin, spreadable consistency that yielded even coverage. The liquid lipstick dried down to a fully matte finish, but it had a very textured appearance where the lines of the lips were emphasized–it made my lips look drier than they actually were. The color lasted for six hours and was somewhat drying. Jouer Rayanne (P, $18.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Really Me (P, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar).

ColourPop Privacy Please Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “vivid lavender pink.” It’s a bright, medium-dark purple with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, but the texture was thin and very, very quick to dry down, which made it harder to apply and get even, smooth coverage. Once it dried down, it revealed a more textured finish, where the lip lines are emphasized and “crack” when you smile/move your lips. The color flaked away as it wore away, over a five hour period. The formula was also drying. Bite Beauty #088 (P, $18.00) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Susperia (P, $20.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC RiRi Boy (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a long-wearing, pigmented lipstick that starts off glossy and dries down quickly to that super flat matte finish. They have minimal transfer with some of the lighter shades having almost none for the first few hours of wear, but any time you’ve had a meal, they lose that transfer-resistant quality to a noticeable degree. They tend to wear anywhere from six to ten hours with darker shades maintaining better color coverage and wear over a longer period of time. Some shades get a little drying about two-thirds to three-fourths through the wear, while a few shades have been fairly non-drying even many hours into wear. They fade away evenly with most color loss occurring from the center of the lips if eating a more oil-based meal but the majority of color survives a meal. Reapplication has been hit or miss and tends to depend on how well it wore away and how easily the shade applies normally, but reapplication tends to emphasize the lip’s natural texture significantly compared to initial application and gives lips a very wrinkled, dried-up look. I’ve layered gloss on top of some shades with moderate success, though it will obviously lose the matte finish and will transfer and I’ll get tiny flakes where the matte lip color has lifted by mixing with gloss but has been pretty minimal. The formula had no discernible taste or scent.

ColourPop Are & Be Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich mauve plum.” It’s a soft, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff with a thin, spreadable texture that went on evenly. It dried down to a flat, matte finish that did emphasize the texture of my lips somewhat.

ColourPop Cheap Thrills Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “dusty lilac.” It’s a muted, medium-dark mauvey lavender with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It looks a lot darker and cooler in tone when it dries down than it looks in the tube (I did a few double takes there). The texture was thin, almost watery, but applied smoothly and evenly with full color coverage. It dried down to a a transfer-free finish, but it had a slight sheen to it–it wasn’t quite matte and had a very, very subtle tackiness to it for about an hour. The color lasted for six hours with a bit of color flaking more from the center of the lip. It was lightly drying over time. NARS Pussy Control (P, $27.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar).
