ColourPop Bon Voyage, Carry-on, Happy Hour Super Shock Bronzers

ColourPop Bon Voyage Super Shock Cheek (Bronzer) ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “soft tan in a matte finish.” It’s a muted, light-medium brown with subtle, warm, yellow undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a lightly velvety texture–a little drier than the highlighter formula but on par with the matte blushes–that is easily blended on the skin. The color wore well for nine hours on me. Colour Pop Skinny Dip (P, $8.00) is warmer. MAC Golden Rinse (LE, $35.50) is lighter, warmer. MAC Matte Bronze (LE, $70.00) is less shimmery, warmer. Tarte Park Ave. Princess #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery, warmer. MAC Aphrodite’s Shell (LE, $33.00) is warmer. Tom Ford Beauty Terra (P, $65.00) is darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty Close-Up #2 (LE, ) is lighter. MAC Matte Bronze (P, $25.00) is lighter. Benefit Hoola (P, $28.00) is darker, warmer. Make Up For Ever #20M (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, cooler.

ColourPop Smokin’ Whistles & Stole the Show Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Smokin’ Whistles Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned pink champagne with silver highlights.” It’s a light beige with a hint of pink and a metallic sheen. I think on cooler-toned skin with stronger pink undertones, this will actually look more pink-based. It’s only when I look at it against more distinctively warm-toned shades side-by-side that the pink comes through against my undertones. It had excellent color payoff that was easily sheered out if desired. This is one of the more metallic finishes in the range, but it didn’t emphasize pores (I was really surprised). It is a strong sheen, so it may not be everyone’s cup of tea. It lasted for eight hours on me. MAC Mystery Princess (LE, $26.00) is more sparkly. Cle de Peau Delicate Pink (14) (P, $55.00) is less metallic. NARS Devotee (LE, $29.00) is a touch pinker. Urban Decay Luminous (P, $29.00) is warmer. Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight (P, $44.00) is less metallic, more beige. MAC Snowglobe (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever #20M and #25I Pro Bronze Fusion

Make Up For Ever Pro Bronze Fusion ($36.00 for 0.38 oz.) is a recently released “gel-powder” bronzer available in six shades with M signifying “natural matte” and L signifying “iridescent” with respect to the finish. It’s supposed to have a “natural-looking, radiant finish” for “sunkissed radiance” that is also waterproof and long-lasting. The texture is fairly firm, and it’s difficult to get color payoff off of it, even though it feels very smooth and with a fingertip, color does come off the pan. I used a dense, kabuki-like brush (Make Up For Ever launched the 136 Pro Bronze Kabuki Brush alongside these, so I went for something similar) yielded semi-sheer, buildable coverage. The finish was luminous on the skin for both shades, with the L shade being slightly more noticeably shimmery, but it was hard to tell the difference in finish blended and applied to the skin. One shade ran yellow, the other ran orange, and both looked darker and warmer than they appeared in the pan. I think the wavy pattern makes it harder to get good, even color coverage. I’m not sure that many will need this to be waterproof, but it was, at best, water-resistant, but it did turn a little splotchy when I sprayed my face with water. These are the only two I purchased, so I don’t know how warm the other shades run.

ColourPop Get Leid & Jelly Fish Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Get Leid Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a ” bright warm peach in a matte finish.” It’s a brightened, medium orange with a hint of red in it, and it has a matte finish. The texture was drier than I’ve encountered in ColourPop’s matte blushes, which made it harder to blend and even out on the skin, especially with fingertips. I felt that a brush made it easier to get even coverage, but it was slow-going as you really had to build it up in layers as the drier consistency resulted in less color picked up by the brush. Once the blush was on it, did wear for eight and a half hours on me. Dior Coral Sunset (002) (LE, $57.00) is lighter, powder. Colour Pop Tasty (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Tarte Fame (LE, $26.00) is a powder. Colour Pop Bonus (P, $8.00) is slightly less red-toned. Colour Pop Tonic (P, $8.00) is darker. Guerlain Petrouchka #9 (LE) is cooler-toned. Makeup Geek Summer Fling (P, $9.99) is powder. NARS Exumas (P, $39.00) is slightly darker. MAC Bad Girl Gone Good (LE, $21.00) is browner, more shimmery, powder. theBalm Swiss Dot (P, $22.00) is darker, powder. NARS Gilda (P, $30.00) is powder, darker. MAC Melba (P, $21.00) is more muted, powder. MAC Coppertone (P, $21.00) is more muted, powder. Illamasqua Expose (P, $26.00) is darker, powder. Chanel Frivole (P, $45.00) is slightly darker, powder.
