Revlon HD Citrine, HD Amber, HD Sunstone Ultra HD Lip Lacquers

Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer ($8.99 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a very pigmented, high-shine formula that tends to be tacky (despite the brand saying it is “never sticky”) with a thicker consistency. There’s a very, very faint sweetness as far as scent goes, but it was hard to detect, even in the tube. The formula isn’t hydrating nor is it drying, so it is fairly comfortable to wear (as long as you don’t mind a thicker, tackier gloss to begin with). They feature a brush-type applicator, which seemed to give a rougher edge due to the thicker nature of the gloss. HD Citrine and HD Sunstone really stood out to me as a more unique shades that also performed well.

ColourPop Mermaid Kiss, Ibiza, Kimono, Shameless Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Mermaid Kiss Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “neon yellow green with a pearlized finish.” It’s a brightened chartreuse green with warm, yellow undertones and a golden shimmer-sheen finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage but has a slightly translucency quality to it. I found it to be buildable to opaque color in two layers patted onto the lid (it seemed more pigmented applied with a brush than fingertip, actually). Once on, it wore well for ten hours without fading or creasing. Colour Pop Sour (P, $5.00) is lighter and yellower. Kat Von D Cult (LE) is darker, powder. Make Up For Ever S336 Lime (P, $21.00) is less shimmery. Make Up For Ever ME338 Acidic Green (P, $21.00) is more shimmery. Giorgio Armani #17 (P, $32.00) is darker, power. Fyrinnae Bitey Tyrannosaur (P, $8.25) is darker, powder. Sephora Collection Apple Mojito (06) (P, $13.00) is darker, less shimmery, powder. MAC Lime (P, $15.00) is matte, powder.

ColourPop Fringe, Amira, Hammered, Partridge Super Shock Eyeshadows

ColourPop Super Shock Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is supposed to be a long-wearing, pigmented, and blendable cream-powder hybrid eyeshadow. It feels more like a cream than a powder eyeshadow, and the brand is very careful to remind you to tightly screw the caps back on and not to leave them open for too long. I’m a big fan of this type of product, and I have had good luck with the majority of the formulas I’ve seen of its kind, including this one. I wore all four of these, and after ten hours, they didn’t appear to have faded or creased. I get more fall out during application than during wear, and these are quite glittery, so it is surprising, but it is not fall out-free–slight fall out but not enough that it looked like more had fallen than stayed on the lid. I recommend applying these prior to any base products, as there is some fall out during application. They’re a good cream eyeshadow, and the price point is really icing on the cake.

Sneak Peek: ColourPop Lippie Stix (x11) Photos & Swatches

ColourPop Grind Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a twist-up lipstick that’s supposed to be long-wearing, comfortable to wear, and is available in three finishes; the Glossy finish has medium-full coverage, while the other two (Satin and Matte) are supposed to have full coverage. Several of you asked about these yesterday, so I got my butt into gear and shot photos/swatches for you :) I didn’t purchase all of the shades they had available, only a handful, so these are all the shades I did buy.
