ColourPop Cruel Intentions, Never Been Kissed, Girl Power Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Cruel Intentions Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “warm rose.” It’s a lightly brightened, medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable coverage, and it applied with the most pigmentation with fingertips (exactly as described), but I had no problems using a stippling brush and using two layers for color. The texture was lightweight and blended out easily, more like a powder in that respect, and it wore for nine and a half hours on me. Tarte Irreplaceable (LE, $26.00) is darker (95% similar).

Smashbox Photo Op Mega Eyeshadow Palette

Smashbox Photo Op Mega Palette ($69.00 for 1.06 oz.) includes eight eyeshadow trios (so 24 eyeshadows), plus three blushes. There are a variety of finishes from mattes to shimmers, cooler and warmer shades. The palette is one I would recommend using with a primer, as most of the eyeshadows are on the powdery side and just do not perform as well over bare skin as they would over a primer. I liked it, and they were fairly blendable overall, but it’s a better fit for someone who regularly uses primer. It’s also a tremendous value, as you’re getting eight full-sized trios (normally $28 a pop, so $224 in value right there), plus three blushes.
