ColourPop In Bloom Set

ColourPop In Bloom Set ($39.00 for 0.56 oz.) includes three cheek colors and three lipsticks released in collaboration with Jamie Greenberg. It’s an assortment of brightened takes on spring shades, and it seems like a little preview of the brand’s upcoming cream highlighters (they’ve teased about them on Instagram) with Double Dip. All six products performed good to great, were easy to apply, and lasted a nice length of time. I think a lot of the shades included are on the more dupable side, but the silver lining is that this is a more affordable way to get a lot of those higher-end similar shades, though they have to be purchased as a set. I hope we’ll see some shades get added to the permanent range!

Tarte Showstopper Clay Palette

Tarte Showstopper Clay Palette ($38.00 for 0.73 oz.) is a new, limited edition round compact that features six eyeshadows and three cheek products. It’s a decent to good eyeshadow palette, and though none of the shades are particularly unique, it may be nice for travel. The one thing to keep in mind is you may need to take your own brow bone/highlighter shade, as the cheek highlighter is pretty over-shimmered relative to the finishes of the eyeshadows. I think last year’s Rainforest After Dark palette was better coordinated, though, as the really warm-toned blush doesn’t complement the eyeshadow shades as well as it could. The quality is about the same, and I think if you normally use primer and like the colors included, you may really enjoy the palette. Most of the shades wore a little shorter on me, which brought down the overall rating.
