ColourPop KaePop Super Shock Shadow Set

ColourPop KaePop Super Shock Shadow Set ($20.00 for 4 x 0.07 oz.) includes four full-sized cream eyeshadows. ColourPop split up the set again, so if you only like one or two shades, you can pick them up individually (there’s no price discount for buying all four, but it’ll come in a square, cardboard box when purchased as a set). The wear across all four shades was great–over ten hours strong–and I only had some application issues with Beverly, which was less pigmented and prone to becoming patchy if I wasn’t careful (it is easier to work with layered over one of the other shades as a result).

ColourPop Chi, Kae, Rooch Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Chi Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “cool-toned nude beige.” It’s a muted, medium brown with subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones and a slight rosy tint. It had a matte finish with rich, opaque coverage that applied evenly and smoothly. It dried down to a transfer-free finish, but it wasn’t as flat/pure matte as a lot of liquid lipsticks can be. It tended to stretch and show lip lines when I smiled, though the color itself lasted for six hours before fading. It was slightly drying. MAC Styled in Sepia (LE, $17.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Mess Around (P, $6.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Beeper (LE, $6.00) is cooler (80% similar). Kat Von D Bow 'n' Arrow (P, $20.00) is cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Wet ‘n’ Wild Geometric Highlighting Powders

Wet ‘n’ Wild Geometric Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.20 oz.) is a new, limited edition highlighting formula for spring that will be available at local drugstores and mass retailers while supplies last. The formula is supposed to be “long-lasting” with a “silky-smooth texture that is easy to blend.” The texture of the three powders is soft, slightly looser in the pan than ideal (some excess gets kicked up), with medium, buildable coverage and a pearly shimmer. All three shades lasted right around the seven-hour mark for me. They’re nice, and at the price point, some of the more flattering highlighters I’ve tried from the drugstore (often, they are too sparkly/metallic!). I wish Wet ‘n’ Wild would add these or something like it to their permanent range. Good luck hunting these down!
