ColourPop Metamorphosis Super Shock Shadow Set
ColourPop Metamorphosis Super Shock Shadow Set

ColourPop Metamorphosis Super Shock Shadow Set ($20.00 for 0.28 oz.) includes four new, limited edition shades of cream eyeshadow. Two of the shades are supposed to be sheer for layering over other products, though I found they were rather semi-opaque, so I found that they tended to consume whatever they were layered over with only slight undertone or brightening/softening of the base coming through. The other two shades are very pigmented, long-wearing, and felt like they had more slip than other satin/matte finishes in the ColourPop range. The shades worked well together, and they wear fairly easy to apply and blend together.

Also worth noting that despite it being incredibly hot during the entire time my order was in transit, everything arrived in tip-top shape (I was afraid there might be melting!).

Bravery is described as a “true medium brown in a matte finish.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a satin finish. I saw very faint shimmer in this one, even though it is listed as a matte. The texture was lightly creamy and easily blended to the skin, while it had good pigmentation and lasted for ten hours without fading or creasing. Sephora + Pantone Universe Russet (LE, ) is less pigmented, warmer. Viseart Taupe (P, ) is lighter. Too Faced Truffled (P, $16.00) is warmer. Colour Pop Farah (P, $5.00) is cooler. Colour Pop Bandit (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer. Make Up For Ever S632 Hazelnut (P, $21.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Twice Baked (P, $18.00) is more shimmery. MAC Texture (P, $16.00) is warmer. NARS Galapagos (P, $24.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Strength is described as a “soft peachy caramel in a satin finish.” It’s a muted, light-medium peachy brown with warm undertones and a very fine, gold shimmer-sheen finish. It had good pigmentation with a lightly creamy consistency that adhered well to the skin and blended out easily. On me, it lasted a full ten hours without creasing or fading. Make Up For Ever S642 Sahara (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler. Makeup Geek Purely Naked (P, $5.99) is darker. Chanel Tisse Vendome #1 (P, ) is more shimmery, darker. Milani Bella Cappuccino (03) (P, $4.49) is darker. Colour Pop Desert (P, $5.00) is darker. Colour Pop Smash (P, $5.00) is darker, cooler. Colour Pop Truth (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Hope is described as a “radiant opal with pink, violet, blue and silver duochrome in a sheer opal finish.” It’s a pinky-white with lighter white and iridescent pink sparkle. It had a very subtle duochrome to it, and it really only becomes stronger over a very dark base color (like black) and appears more iridescent than duochrome on its own. The more sparkly texture can emphasize the lid’s natural texture. It had semi-opaque coverage (it wasn’t sheer at all!) and lasted for ten hours without fading, but there was minor fall out over time. It is similar to Monster Super Shock Cheek, just sparkly and made for the eyes. Too Faced Strawberry Ice (LE, $16.00) is darker. Tom Ford Beauty Crushed Indigo (Left) (LE, ) is lighter, brighter. Milani Bella Rose (29) (P, $4.49) is darker. Makeup Geek Whimsical (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, lighter. Maybelline Petunia Punk (120) (LE, $6.99) is less shimmery. Urban Decay Roadstripe (LE, $18.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler. Make Up For Ever I872 Pearly Pink (P, $21.00) is less shimmery. MAC Ready to Party (P, $20.00) is more shimmery. L’Oreal Strawberry Blonde (LE, $7.99) is less shimmery. Make Up For Ever D868 Crystalline Pink (P, $21.00) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Kindness is described as a “warm red brown undertone with a gold, green, and blue duochrome in a sheer opal finish.” It’s a medium-dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and a blue-to-green duochrome finish with a strong, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation (again, not really sheer) that went on evenly and played well on its own or patted over others. I didn’t have any fading or creasing over a ten-hour period.Sephora + Pantone Universe Castor Gray (LE, ) is darker, cooler. Urban Decay Solstice (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker. MAC Boom Boom Room (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker. Urban Decay Lounge (P, $18.00) is darker, cooler. Makeup Geek Insomnia (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, darker, cooler. MAC Fireside (LE, $21.00) is darker. MAC I’ve Got a Crush on You (LE, $32.50) is darker, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NYX Amber HD Blush
NYX Amber HD Blush

NYX Amber HD Blush ($6.50 for 0.16 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy pink with warm undertones and a satin finish. The finish has a soft sheen to it that gives the a skin a nice glow without emphasizing pores or appearing overly shimmery. It had a soft, silky consistency that kicked up excess product in the pan, but it didn’t look powdery applied to the skin. The blush had mostly opaque coverage that was easily blended down or built to true-to-pan intensity in two layers. On me, it lasted seven and a half hours before fading. Chanel Innocence (160) (P, $45.00) is cooler. Hourglass Radiant Magenta (P, $35.00) is brighter. MAC Cheeky Bugger (LE, $21.00) is lighter. NARS Love (LE, $30.00) is cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NYX Pink the Town HD Blush ($6.50 for 0.16 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy pink with warm undertones and a satin finish. It’s a light-medium, peachy-coral with warm undertones and just a hint of pink. It had a softly luminous finish, so it gave the skin a nice glow without emphasizing the skin’s natural texture. It was somewhat powdery to work with, though I didn’t notice it looking powdery or dry on the skin, but be careful of excess powder accumulating in the pan. The blush blended easily, and it wore for seven hours on me. MAC Immortal Flower (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter. Surratt Beauty Parfait (P, $32.00) is darker. Illamasqua Flirtatious (LE, $26.00) is glossier. Hourglass Diffused Heat (P, $35.00) is cooler. Tarte Darling (LE, $26.00) is darker. Make Up For Ever #225 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is warmer. Make Up For Ever #215 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is glossier. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: NYX’s newest blush formula is supposed to be a “high definition, lightweight blush that blends evenly” that is “vibrant and silky.” The texture tended to be on the more powdery side, but it sits well and doesn’t look powdery applied. Many shades have a more luminous finish to them where the shimmer is fine enough to create a glow, rather than a frosted finish (though a couple are quite shimmery). The formula blends fairly easily on the skin and has medium, buildable coverage with some being very pigmented right off the bat. The wear time is between seven and eight hours.

Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color
Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color

Maybelline Craving Coral Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage, though there was a hint of my lip freckle still visible, so your natural lip color may still come through. It was lightly creamy and sat well on the lips, while the color wore for six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Flame (06) (P, $50.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. MAC Strange Journey (LE, $16.00) is darker. NARS Marlene (P, $32.00) is more muted, glossier. Kat Von D Countess (P, $21.00) is brighter. Dior Trafalgar (844) (P, $34.00) is brighter, glossier. MAC Dangerous (P, $16.00) is darker, more muted. MAC Tomango (LE, $16.00) is brighter. MAC Lady Danger (P, $16.00) is brighter. MAC Scarlet Ibis (LE, $16.00) is darker, brighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Siren in Scarlet Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium, brightened red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had almost full coverage and applied evenly without dragging on the lips. The color sat well and lasted for six hours with a stain remaining. The formula was comfortable to wear and wasn’t drying. MAC Steam Heat (LE, $16.00) is darker, more muted. Make Up For Ever #43 (P, $19.00) is glossier. MAC Ruby Woo (P, $16.00) is cooler. MAC MAC Red (P, $16.00) is darker, cooler. Kat Von D Underage Red (P, $19.00) is warmer, less glossy. Too Faced Melted Ruby (P, $21.00) is cooler, glossier. Tom Ford Beauty Ruby Rush (07) (P, $50.00) is darker. MAC Ruby (LE, $16.00) is glossier. NARS Deadly Catch (LE, $26.00) is darker. Anastasia American Doll (P, $20.00) is less glossy. Bite Beauty Fraise (P, $24.00) is lighter. MAC Tenor Voice (LE, $16.00) is lighter, warmer. MAC Opera (LE, $16.00) is warmer. MAC Kinky (LE, $16.00) is darker. Kat Von D Outlaw (P, $19.00) is darker, less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Divine Wine Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a deepened, slightly muted, dark burgundy with warm, reddish-brown undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation, though not totally opaque, that went on smoothly and evenly and didn’t pull into lip lines. This shade stayed on for six hours and wasn’t drying. Tom Ford Beauty Velvet Cherry (08) (P, $50.00) is warmer, glossier. MAC Diva (P, $16.00) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Blow (210) (P, $30.00) is glossier. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: It is supposed to “deliver a burst of bold lip color” with a “creamy texture” and a matte finish. In general, the formula has good color payoff with a velvety, creamy consistency that covers evenly and most shades seem to make lips appear smoother but some shades were prone to pulling into lip lines as the color wore away. The big thing about these is that they have a mostly matte finish and are more comfortable to wear than many matte formulas due to the velvety feel (almost like a silicone primer, but not quite as heavy and not clingy). The formula was neither drying nor hydrating on me. It had a sweet, plastic-like scent but no taste.

ColourPop Thumper Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Thumper Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Swift Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “rich deep warm brown in a matte finish.” It’s a medium-dark, reddish brown with warm, red-orange undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though not fully opaque, when applied with a fingertip, while brush application yielded semi-sheer payoff. The texture was a little drier, which seemed to make it harder to get that really opaque, intense color out of it, but luckily, it didn’t impact the application, as it was still easily blended on the skin. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me. MAC Sweet As Cocoa (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker. Chanel Canaille (89) (LE, $45.00) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Stylish Me (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery. Colour Pop Happy Hour (P, $8.00) is brighter, warmer, less pigmented, more muted, darker. Charlotte Tilbury Formentera (P, $45.00) is darker. Becca Blushed Copper (LE, $38.00) is less shimmery, darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Thumper Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone true blue pink in a matte finish.” It’s a brightened, light-medium pink with cool, blue undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, velvety texture that was blendable on the skin. It wore well for eight hours on me. NARS Mistinguette (LE, $30.00) is lighter, brighter. theBalm Down Boy (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer. NARS Gaiety (P, $30.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler. MAC I’m the One (LE, $21.00) is darker. NARS Roman Holiday (LE, $30.00) is darker. MAC I’m a Lover (P, $23.50) is more shimmery, lighter. Milani Delizioso Pink (10) (P, $7.99) is darker. Surratt Beauty Guimauve (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Colour Pop Mochi (P, $8.00) is cooler. Urban Decay Quickie (P, $26.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $26.00) is . Clinique Pansy Pop (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Trickery Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “soft pastel true peach in a satin finish.” It’s a light-medium peach with faint gold shimmer and warm undertones. It had mostly opaque color payoff when applied with fingertips with more semi-sheer, buildable coverage when used with a brush. The texture was lightweight, velvety, and smooth, which made it a cinch to apply as it blended out nicely. I didn’t notice the shimmer translate into a real sheen or frost on the skin, though in a magnifying mirror, I can see a few bits of the shimmer there. The color lasted for seven and a half hours before fading. NYX Soft Spoken (P, $6.50) is more shimmery, lighter. Dior Peach Splendor (LE, $44.00) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Fun Ending (LE, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Corol #1 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, warmer. Urban Decay Score (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter. MAC Alpha Girl (LE, $26.00) is .

Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color
Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color

Maybelline Lust for Blush Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. There is a fine gold micro-shimmer in it, but it’s hard to see. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly. It wore well for four and a half hours but could have faded away a little more evenly. It was neither drying nor hydrating when I tried it. Maybelline Ravishing Rose (P, $7.99) is lighter. MAC Nouvelle Vogue (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Le Metier de Beaute Fiji (P, $32.00) is more shimmery. Make Up For Ever #12 (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Ravishing Rose Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, light-medium pink with cool, blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that covered fairly evenly. The color lasted for four and a half hours, and there was some minor settling into lip lines after three hours of wear. I didn’t find it hydrating, but it also wasn’t drying. Maybelline Lust for Blush (P, $7.99) is lighter. NARS Claudia (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. MAC Steady Going (P, $16.00) is darker, more muted. Bite Beauty Kumquat (LE, $24.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Silly (LE, $16.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Faint for Fuchsia Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a brightened, medium fuchsia pink with strong, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly full color coverage that covered evenly and smoothly. The texture was a little more emollient than the other shades in the line, but it sat better on the lips as a result. This shade stayed on well for five and a half hours and left a slight stain behind, and it was drying. Ardency Inn Twist (P, $25.00) is darker. NARS Yu (P, $25.00) is darker. MAC Pink Pigeon (P, $16.00) is more muted. MAC Candy Yum Yum (P, $16.00) is cooler. Kat Von D Backstage Bambi (P, $19.00) is brighter, cooler, less glossy.

Maybelline Mesmerizing Magenta Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a brightend, fuchsia-red with subtle, cool undertones and a violet pearl. It was almost a “warm” fuchsia, but it’s still leaning cooler to me. The texture was lightly creamy, so it applied well, and it looked smooth on the lips with mostly opaque coverage. This shade wore well for five and a half hours and wasn’t drying. MAC Moxie (LE, $16.00) is cooler, less glossy. MAC Impassioned (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer.

Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color
Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color

Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is supposed to “deliver a burst of bold lip color” with a “creamy texture” and a matte finish. I have ten shades that I picked up awhile ago when they first launched, but Maybelline’s website shows the range with twenty shades now (I couldn’t seem to find them online to buy, though), and I haven’t seen anything new at my local drugstores for ages (I’ve gone twice a week for the last month to find summery goodness with no luck!). In general, the formula has good color payoff with a velvety, creamy consistency that covers evenly and most shades seem to make lips appear smoother but some shades were prone to pulling into lip lines as the color wore away. The big thing about these is that they have a mostly matte finish and are more comfortable to wear than many matte formulas due to the velvety feel (almost like a silicone primer, but not quite as heavy and not clingy). The formula was neither drying nor hydrating on me. It had a sweet, plastic-like scent but no taste.

Maybelline Nude Embrace Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium beige with strong, warm brown tones and a satin finish. It had good color payoff with a creamy consistency, so there was no drag when applied, but the color migrated into lip lines during initial application. Despite trying to smooth the color out of the lines, as it wore on, the color kept gravitating towards the lip lines. It wore for four and a half hours in all and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Precocious (LE, $5.00) is lighter. MAC Naturally Transformed (P, $16.00) is darker. MAC Sensual Sparks (LE, $16.00) is darker. Too Faced Melted Nude (P, $21.00) is brighter, warmer. NARS Biscayne Park (P, $25.00) is darker. Givenchy Beige Mousseline (101) (P, $36.00) is darker, cooler. MAC Wholesome (LE, $16.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Daringly Nude Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a peachy-pink with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had fairly opaque pigmentation that covered evenly, but again, the color had a tendency to emphasize lip lines. It wasn’t as noticeable as it was with Nude Embrace, at least. On me, the color lasted for four and a half hours with more color settling into lip lines over time, though it wasn’t drying. MAC Reel Sexy (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Kinda Sexy (P, $16.00) is darker. Burberry Pink Apricot (301) (P, $30.00) is darker. Givenchy Beige Plume (102) (P, $36.00) is darker, cooler. MAC Antonio’s Girls (LE, $16.00) is cooler. Anastasia Pure Hollywood (P, $20.00) is lighter, less glossy. MAC Oxblood (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer. Colour Pop Button (P, $5.00) is darker, brighter, warmer. Bite Beauty Leche (P, $24.00) is darker, brighter. Bite Beauty Amaretto (P, $24.00) is darker, brighter. Tom Ford Beauty First Time (09) (LE, $50.00) is more shimmery, brighter, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Touch of Spice Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with subtle, warmer undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that covered evenly and smoothly. The texture was creamy, and it was much more forgiving on the lips. It wore well for five and a half hours, and I didn’t have any issues with the color pulling into lip lines. It wasn’t drying when worn. Maybelline Yummy Plummy (P, $7.49) is cooler. Make Up For Ever #4 (P, $19.00) is lighter. Tom Ford Beauty Casablanca (P, $50.00) is cooler, glossier. Marc Jacobs Beauty Infamous (228) (P, $30.00) is lighter, cooler. Tom Ford Beauty Richard (LE, $32.00) is warmer. Tom Ford Beauty Cary (LE, $32.00) is cooler, glossier. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
