ColourPop Holiday, Homie, Mochi Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Holiday Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “true mid-tone peachy pink in a matte finish.” It’s a muted, light-medium pink-coral with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. There’s a very faint shimmer in the finish when swatched or looked at closely, but on the skin, it’s more of a natural matte finish–not flat but not shimmery. It had good, opaque coverage when applied with a fingertip and more buildable, medium coverage when applied with a duo-fiber brush. The texture was velvety and smooth with a thin, lightweight feel on the skin that was easily blended. On me, it lasted for eight hours. NYX Mauve (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker. MAC Royal Sunset (LE, $21.00) is warmer. MAC Royal Sunset (LE, $21.00) is warmer. Urban Decay Overexposed (LE, ) is less shimmery. Hourglass Radiant Magenta (P, $35.00) is warmer.

bareMinerals The Color Compatibles Palette

bareMinerals The Color Compatibles Palette ($39.00 for 0.51 oz.) includes six eyeshadows and three cheek products. If you’re a long-time bareMinerals Ready palette collector, you’ll probably find this has too many repeats in it to justify, but if you haven’t tried the Ready line and like warmer neutrals, it’s well worth some consideration. Ready eyeshadow is one of my favorite eyeshadow formulas, and it shines in this palette. The formula is supposed to have twelve-hour wear, be pigmented, and have “seamless blendability.” The Ready blush and bronzer formula is supposed to have an eight-hour wear time with “stay-true, buildable color.”

ColourPop Paradise Cove, Poolside, Skinny Dip Super Shock Bronzers

ColourPop Paradise Cove Super Shock Cheek (Bronzer) ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “golden beige in a satin finish.” It’s a medium brown with warm, yellow-orange undertones and a lighter gold shimmer-sheen finish. It had nice pigmentation that applied really evenly and smoothly as the texture was creamy enough to make it apply well but still dry down and set to a powder finish. On me, the color stayed on well for eight hours. MAC Delicates (LE, $35.50) is more shimmery. Tarte Park Ave Princess (P, ) is more shimmery. Too Faced Spice (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Delphic (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter, warmer. Make Up For Ever #20M (P, $36.00) is more shimmery, darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
