ColourPop Ego Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color coverage, which went on evenly, but the texture ran a little dry and dusty, so I had a bit of fallout during application and felt like some of the shimmer pulled away as I blended it out. It started to fade on me after seven and a half hours of wear.

Double Play

ColourPop Double Play Pressed Powder Face Duo ($16.00 for 0.52 oz.) features two large face powders–a blush and highlighter–housed in a cardboard palette with an interior mirror. The blush formula is supposed to have “long-wear” with a “soft” and “silky” feel that “can be layered for your desired intensity.” The highlighter formula is supposed to have “high-shine” with a “buttery-soft” feel that has “high colour intensity.” If you prefer your blushes buildable, then you might like the blush in this palette, but if you want true-to-pan color and coverage in one layer, I’d skip the duo. The highlighter had a more metallic finish with some sparkle but a lighter touch can get more subdued results.

In general, ColourPop’s powder blush formula is thinner and can feel a little dusty or powdery, depending on the shade, and has sheerer, more buildable coverage, while the powder highlighter formula is much denser, almost to the point where a dense brush is required to pick up a modicum of product. The upside is the denser quality of the highlighter makes it harder to overdo it from the get-go, so the highlighter has a more buildable glow. I wish their blushes had more of the substance that their matte eyeshadows have, which would give them better adherence and overall coverage.

ColourPop Strip Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium peachy brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly across the lips. The consistency was thin but with substance, so there was plenty of coverage while it was still spreadable. The formula on this shade seemed to be a little drier than most Ultra Satins, which became more noticeable after three hours of wear as the color itself started to look more matte and more like a traditional liquid lipstick. The lipstick lasted for nearly six and a half hours but was drying over time. The scent of this also seemed to be much waxier than I recall as well, though I did not notice any scent once I applied it to my lips.

Precious Petals

Wet ‘n’ Wild Precious Petals MegaGlo Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.19 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It was a stronger, more obvious highlighter, so it would be best suited for someone who prefers intense highlighting over subtle highlighting. There was slight emphasis of my skin’s natural texture when worn at medium or higher coverage.

The formula is supposed to be “velvety-smooth” and give a “naturally luminous glow.” The powder was soft, blendable, and just a touch loose in the pan, but it was easy to apply to the high points of the face and diffuse the color. For a less intense sheen, I’d recommend using a fan brush or a very light hand and just lightly dusting on the skin instead. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

This is a fantastic option for anyone who has wanted some of the hyped-up, limited edition gold highlighters we’ve seen over the last six months, since it’s very, very similar to so many of them.

ColourPop Birdy Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.352 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly well to lips, though there was very slight streaking at times (especially if I pressed my lips together, then I could see a faint “line”). The consistency was creamy, smooth, and comfortable to apply and to wear as it never tugged on the lips. The color wore well for three hours and was lightly moisturizing.

Forget Me Not

ColourPop Forget Me Not Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. There were a few larger sparkles in the finish, but it wasn’t truly glittery. The texture was smooth, thin without being dry or difficult to use, and felt slightly wet to the touch. It had good pigmentation when applied with fingertips–which is as marketed–and medium, buildable coverage that blended out easily along the edges. It highlighted the skin with a noticeable, luminous sheen but did not emphasize my pores or my skin’s natural texture. The highlighter/blush lasted for ten hours on me.
