Sneak Peek: ColourPop Super Shock Pressed Pigments Photos & Swatches

Here’s a sneak peek look at ColourPop Super Shock Pressed Pigments ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.), which are all shades that aren’t safe for use on the eyes (likely due to the neon dyes). The formula feels the same as the Sugar Shock Eyeshadows, but I wanted to separate them out.

Revlon HD Pink Sapphire, HD Petalite, HD Smoky Topaz Ultra HD Lip Lacquers

Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer ($8.99 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as an richly pigmented, lightweight, “never sticky” gloss with a “high-impact shine.” The best part about the gloss is that it delivers quite well on pigmentation, and they initially feel quite comfortable on with a creamy, almost gel-like quality to them. However, they get very tacky as they wear on, and the gloss itself is thicker. It’s not quite as thick as MAC Lipglass, but it is similarly tacky. I’m not keen on the brush-type applicator and feel like a doe-foot would have been better, as the strands of the brush tend to push the color outside the natural lip line and leave it looking slightly uneven (probably not noticeable from a normal viewing distance). They didn’t seem to have much of a scent, but in the tube, there was a very subtle sweetness. The formula is neither drying nor hydrating on me.

Sephora Love Affair, Strawberry Macaroon, Tango Night, Surfer Babe Contour Eye Pencils

Sephora Love Affair Contour Eye Pencil ($10.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “plum.” It’s a blackened plum with neutral undertones and a pearly sheen. It had so-so color coverage in a single pass but was buildable to opaque color with two layers. It had a really creamy, glide-on consistency that didn’t tug. This shade lasted for ten hours on me. Tarte Plum (LE) is warmer. Burberry Pale Grape No. 04 (P, $29.00) is darker, less shimmery. NARS Night Bird (P, $24.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Nightshade (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Tarina Tarantino Ultraviolet (P, $15.00) is very similar. MAC Strong Willed (P, $20.00) is similar. Urban Decay Rockstar (P, $19.00) is very similar. Chanel Cassis (P, $30.00) is less shimmery.
