ColourPop Intoxicate & Jet Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Intoxicate Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “caramel brown.” It’s a medium-dark, yellowed brown with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and creamy consistency that blended out nicely on the skin without sheering out. I had no issues applying it with a brush (MAC 242), but you can also use fingertips if you prefer. It wore well for ten hours without fading or creasing.

Laura Mercier Gilded Gold, Orchid, Plum, Seashell Caviar Sticks

Laura Mercier Gilded Gold Caviar Stick Eye Colour ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a dirtied, medium yellowed gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff in one stroke, and it was buildable to mostly opaque coverage but was more challenging to blend for me. It seemed prone to skipping on the skin, and it was one that applied a lot better with a separate brush (try a flat, synthetic one). It wore well for nine hours before creasing.
