ColourPop Stingraye Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “cool-toned mauve brown.” It’s a muted, medium-dark mauve with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. There is a light sheen to it, and it has a more “plastic” like feel on the lips that is smooth but a little tacky and not fully matte.

It had mostly opaque coverage that applied evenly and smoothly, though the color “cracked” somewhat as soon as I smiled. The texture was mostly non-sticky (though it was transfer-resistant). On me, the color lasted for six hours with some uneven color breakdown over the last two hours. It was lightly drying. Colour Pop Likely (LE, $6.00) is glossier (95% similar).

It had rich, opaque coverage that went on smoothly and evenly. The texture was fairly lightweight but did cling noticeably. It is matte and dries down fully, but it looks more “natural” on as it isn’t a totally flat finish. On me, the color lasted for almost eight hours and faded evenly, but it was drying. NYX Merlot (P, $6.00) is glossier (95% similar). Colour Pop Lyin' King (P, $6.00) is brighter, warmer, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Bee's Knees (P, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar).

ColourPop Where the Night Is Super Shock Shadow Set

ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow ($20.00 for 0.28 oz. or $5.00 for each 0.07 oz. shade) is a collection of four Super Shock Shadows that can be purchased a “set,” but you can also purchase each shade alone. There’s no monetary advantage to purchasing the set; the only difference is you would get the packaging that reflects the collaboration and collection’s name. It’s a nice selection of shades, and all four shades performed well for me and were consistent with the formula I’ve come to know and love. If you’re unfamiliar with the Super Shock Shadow formula, it 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).

Midnight is described as a “black undertone with a ton of gold glitter on top in a metallic finish.” It’s a blackened olive green with warm undertones and gold glitter. It had semi-opaque coverage that was buildable to opaque coverage with two to three layers of product. The texture was lightly emollient and blended out well without turning patchy. The eyeshadow was still going strong after ten hours of wear (no primer), but I did have a few stray glittery bits underneath my eye. Charlotte Tilbury Veruschka (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Gingerluxe #3 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). MAC Greenluxe #4 (P, ) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D308 Aquatic Khaki (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Gabon (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #24 (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Hammered (P, $5.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Color Field #5 (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Zodiac (P, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I328 Bronze (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Gucci Beauty Cosmic Deco #2 (P, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). bareMinerals Eureka (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Crowbar (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Sephora Hidden Treasure (114) (LE, $13.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Inglot #419 (P, $6.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Porter is described as a “warm burgundy with gold multi-dimensional gold glitter on top [of] a metallic finish.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark cranberry with hints of warm, pinky-copper tones and subtle gold sparkle. The texture had a really creamy, smooth feel to it, and it applied with true-to-pot color with full coverage. It blends out with ease and doesn’t look patchy or faded. On me, I didn’t have any fading or creasing even after ten hours of wear. Colour Pop Lectra (DC, $5.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Heritage Rouge (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Hidden Motive (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). City Color It's a Girl (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). MAC Plummed (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Smashbox Framboise (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Brazenly (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Chanel Delicatesse #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). YSL Scandal #3 (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Telepathy is described as a “bright gold with a green undertone in an ultra-metallic finish.” It’s a bright, light-medium yellow gold with an almost “cool” undertone (compared to most golds, which are often orange-based) paired with a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow had great color payoff with a smooth, blendable consistency that applied beautifully and was still in pristine condition after ten hours of wear. Kat Von D Prophet (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Blitz (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 02 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #5 (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Thrasher (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Goldmine (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Sephora David (LE, ) is more muted (85% similar). Sephora Bronze (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Makeup Geek Fortune Teller (P, $9.99) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Viseart Bijoux Royal #3 (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). Too Faced Instigator (LE, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #4 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Hourglass Color Field #2 (P, ) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Weenie is described as a “pinky rose gold in a pearlized finish.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark coppery bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was nicely pigmented with full coverage and a creamy, moderately emollient texture (it felt “wetter” than most ColourPop eyeshadows). It sheered out just a wee bit when applied, but it layered well if you needed pristine, opaque pigmentation. It wore well for ten hours. Coloured Raine Who Me (P, $6.99) is more shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D708 Pinky Copper (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Reward Yourself (LE, $16.50) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop La-La (LE, $5.00) is warmer (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Muse #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). LORAC Rose Gold (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar).

ColourPop Aquarius, Taurus, Rayezor Lippie Stix

ColourPop Aquarius Lippie Stix
ColourPop Aquarius Lippie Stix

ColourPop Aquarius Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.0357 oz.) is described as a “soft pink nude in a creme finish.” It’s a light-medium, rosy beige with warm undertones and a soft shine. The color was muted enough without being dark that it surprised me in its versatility–I felt like it could tone down a look or brighten a look. It had mostly opaque coverage with a very creamy, emollient texture with more slip than your average shade in the Lippie Stix range. It was very lightly hydrating over the four hours it lasted, but I did notice some of the color slipped into lip lines after two to three hours of wear. The thicker, creamier texture made it easier to press my lips together to smooth the color back out while wearing it, but it was worth noting. Givenchy Beige Mousseline (101) (P, $36.00) is warmer (95% similar). Bite Beauty Honeycomb (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar).

MAC Doe (P, $21.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Zenith (LE, $30.00) is less pigmented, cooler (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Severine (112) (DC, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

ColourPop Taurus Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.0357 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone yellow brown in a matte finish.” It’s a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm, reddish-orange undertones and a satin finish. It had intense, full coverage with a smooth, creamy texture that applied beautifully and easily. The color stayed on well for almost five hours, while the formula was neither drying nor hydrating over time. MAC Tabla (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Photo (P, $17.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Ruffle (LE, $5.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). Maybelline Maple Kiss (925) (P, $7.49) is cooler (85% similar).

NARS Het Loo (P, $25.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop RAYEzor Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.0357 oz.) is described as a “warm peachy nude in a matte finish.” It’s a muted, medium peachy-brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It’s almost coral-like, though it pulls browner and doesn’t have pink tones to it. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy consistency that was easy enough to apply without tugging on the lips. The color wore well for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Pinch (DC, $5.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Maybelline Clay Crush (P, $7.99) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Discreet (P, $32.00) is cooler, glossier (90% similar).

Tom Ford Beauty Twist of Fate (LE, $50.00) is darker, brighter (80% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Lippie Stix are vanilla-scented and come in twist-up tubes. Most of the finishes are not hydrating for me, but they are usually not drying either (unsurprisingly, the more matte a shade was, the more likely it was on the drying side). Note, they’re affordable because of a lower price point, but they do contain less product than your average twist-up lip product (about 0.05 to 0.07 oz.) and even less than your standard lipstick (about 0.10 to 0.12 oz.). Depending on how you look at value, it may or may not be as compelling of a budget product (e.g. it could be a good value if you rarely finish your lipsticks or are looking to try a shade you’re unsure about).

ColourPop Santos & New Lowes Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Santos Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Santos Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Santos Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “soft golden bronze.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark bronzy brown with warm, rosy undertones and a pearly sheen. There’s a plum/rosy vibe I get from it that makes it appear less bronzy, especially as I blended it out (even against my warmer undertones). The texture was smooth, soft, and blendable without being too dry or too emollient. It had buildable color coverage from semi-sheer to opaque, depending on how you applied it (which is how it is described). This shade wore well for ten hours before fading. Urban Decay Sesso (Bronzer) (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Sunkissed Glow (P, $48.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Paranoid (P, $26.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop New Lowes Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned berry.” It’s a medium-dark berry with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to mostly opaque with a natural finish that wasn’t shimmery but not totally matte. The more this is blended out (and sheered out), the more it appears as a stain. The texture was smooth, thin, and a little drier compared to the more shimmery shades in the cheek color range. It was fairly blendable, but it wasn’t quite as effortless as Santos. It wore well for ten hours before starting to fade. NARS Chic (LE, $30.00) is more muted (90% similar).

ColourPop Puppy Love Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Puppy Love Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Puppy Love Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft peach with pink and gold duochrome.” It’s a light peach with warm undertones and an iridescent pink sheen. It read more pink sheen than duochrome to me (I couldn’t detect as much of a shift when moving my arm). Urban Decay Blow (P, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). Dior Rose Garden #4 (LE, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek I'm Peachless (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Zoeva Handmade (P, ) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). Guerlain Les Precieux #2 (LE, ) is brighter (90% similar). LORAC Dream Girl #10 (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). theBalm #14 (P, $6.50) is darker (85% similar). Ciate Dainty (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). Chanel Tisse d'Automne #2 (P, ) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

This is the first charity product I’ve seen from ColourPop, and it was nice to see that “all proceeds from the sale of ‘Puppy Love’ will be donated to Best Friends Animal Society.” It’s part of their cream-to-powder range, which has a firm, but spongy, consistency that applies more like a powder than a traditional cream eyeshadow (it doesn’t really feel wet). The texture was thin, blendable, and spread across the skin fairly well. This one was a little drier to me than the average ColourPop eyeshadow, so it was one that needs building/layering to achieve true-to-pan intensity. It wore for ten hours without creasing or fading on me.

Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliners (x5)

Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliners
Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliners

Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is supposed to be a smooth, pigmented, long-wearing, and waterproof eyeliner. Overall, I liked the formula; it had good wear-time, buildable pigmentation (typically semi-opaque in one stroke), and enough creaminess that there wasn’t any tugging during application. Their color range was a little more unique from the shades I bought, but they also had some more typical shades like black, brown, etc.

Female Attraction is a muted, medium-dark navy blue with subtle cool tones (it looks like “warmer” blue, even though it is still cool-toned) paired with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single pass, and the texture was creamy enough to glide easily but not smudge all over the place. The color wore well for eight hours on me before thinning. Urban Decay Mainline (P, $20.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop DTLA (P, $5.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Kat Von D Nerdrum (P, $19.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

New Jewels is a bright, violet purple with lavender and purple micro-glitter. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, while it was buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The texture was creamy enough for a comfortable, tug-free application. On me, the color wore well for nine hours, but there was some migration of sparkles over time. Colour Pop Ho Ho (LE, $6.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Designer Purple (P, $15.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Grape)vine (P, $25.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Ransom (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Smashbox Nymph (P, $18.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Voodoo (LE, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Milani Perfect Purple (P, $6.99) is warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Homie (P, $10.00) is lighter (85% similar). Sephora Eccentric Diva (P, $10.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Plum)age (60) (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Nude Reflection is a medium, taupe brown with warm undertones and lighter taupe frosted shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one pass, and I was able to build it to mostly opaque coverage with two to three layers. It was lightly creamy with good glide and even coverage when applied to the lower lash line. This was my personal favorite of the five I bought to try, but I live in a world that I feel is lacking in taupe eyeliner! The color wore well for eight and a half hours. Urban Decay Mushroom (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Grey Tide (P, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC It's Physical (DC, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Perle de Lune (916) (LE, $33.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Pistol (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Opulence is a slightly muted, medium-dark copper red with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good color payoff in a single stroke. The texture was creamy, which made it easy to apply. It wore well for nine hours on me before thinning. I couldn’t think of any dupes for this one! Urban Decay Fireball (P, $22.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Regency is a medium-dark, cool-ttoned violet purple with fine shimmer. It had sheer pigmentaiton in a single stroke, and it was much more emollient compared to the other shades–it had more slip. I was able to build-up the color to semi-opaque coverage with three layers of product, and it still wore well (eight hours), but it was the least pigmented of the five. Kat Von D Homie (P, $10.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Ho Ho (LE, $6.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Roxy (P, $18.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Ransom (LE, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I90 Iridescent Pop Purple (P, $21.00) is warmer (85% similar). NARS St. Marks Place (P, $24.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Grape)vine (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar).
