Burberry Gold Copper & Dusky Mauve Eye Colour Creams

Burberry Gold Copper No. 100 Eye Colour Cream
Burberry Gold Copper No. 100 Eye Colour Cream

Burberry Eye Colour Cream ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a new cream eyeshadow formula that is available in eight shades. The formula is supposed to be “creamy, blendable” in texture with a “long-lasting” and “crease-free” wear. Burberry says it can be used to “deliver an effortless wash of luminising colour.” The texture is lightly spongy, though the two shades I tried had a firmer consistency with less spring compared to other formulas I’ve tried. They’re very blendable with semi-opaque coverage that’s easily taken down to more of a wash of color or layered for more opaque coverage, but they’re more medium buildable than a true wash of color. They lasted for six to eight hours on me before creasing.

Burberry Gold Copper No. 100 Eye Colour Cream ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a soft, medium brown with a gold, frosted finish. It had semi-opaque coverage in one layer, though it can be sheered out by blending more or layered once more for opaque coverage. The texture is smooth but firmer and less emollient in the pot. This shade started to crease after six hours of wear. Bobbi Brown Praline (LE, $21.00) is darker. Make Up For Ever I538 Pearly Gray Beige (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Clinique Ample Amber (P, $17.00) is darker. Chanel Tisse Vendome #1 (P, ) is darker. Chanel Tisse Vendome #1 (P, ) is darker. Make Up For Ever I634 Praline (P, $21.00) is darker. Stila Peace (P, ) is darker, brighter, warmer. Tarte Keepsake Frame (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker. LORAC Sienna (LE, ) is darker, cooler. Makeup Geek Purely Naked (P, $5.99) is less shimmery. Dior Cuir Cannage #4 (P, ) is more shimmery, darker. Surratt Beauty Cuivre (P, $20.00) is darker. Sephora Collection Selfie (P, $13.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Too Faced Desire (P, ) is darker, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Burberry Dusky Mauve No. 108 Eye Colour Cream ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a soft, medium-dark taupe brown with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation with a blendable consistency. It had more slip than Gold Copper but was dry enough that pressing at the mound in the jar showed it to “crack” almost, even though it did have some slip and was certainly still a cream eyeshadow. It wore well for eight hours before creasing on me. Maybelline Sleek & Spice (95) (LE, $6.99) is darker. MAC Until Dawn #1 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker. Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #3 (LE, ) is darker, warmer. Make Up For Ever S560 Taupe (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, warmer. MAC Satin Taupe #2 (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter. Anastasia Pink Champagne (P, $12.00) is lighter, warmer. MAC Force of Nature #1 (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker. Burberry Rosewood (202) (P, $29.00) is less shimmery. Sleek MakeUP Paradise on Earth (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NARS Velvet Shadow Sticks

NARS Velvet Shadow Stick
NARS Velvet Shadow Stick

NARS Velvet Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is supposed to be a “long-wearing, crease-proof” formula with a “velvety matte finish” that “glides smoothly” with “high impact.” The formula is certainly an improvement from the Soft Touch Shadow Pencils, which were some of the fastest-creasing products I have ever tested. This formula doesn’t crease as quickly, though wear is only five to six hours, which isn’t stellar.

The texture is creamy enough that it doesn’t tug, but it dries down to a “semi-dry” texture quickly and becomes difficult to really smooth out. Consistently, when blended, the shades often looked patchy and uneven. This was least apparent with lighter shades that were closer to my skin tone, as the natural skin makes the patchiness less obvious, while in contrast, darker shades showed just how patchy and uneven the colors blended out. They’re better as eyeshadow bases, as they’ll last a bit longer with powder on top to set and the powder eyeshadow will help even out the base. In order to use these as an eyeliner, I highly recommend using a separate brush to grab color from the stick, because the stick is very rounded and large, which made it a real challenge to get it close enough to the lash line to line as well as keep the color precise (it always gave me a more jagged line).

NARS came up with some really interesting colors, and they’re ones you don’t see as often with this type of formula, but for me, the formula just didn’t perform well. If you’re looking for a cream-based eyeshadow from NARS, try their Eye Paints, which are far superior.

NARS Aigle Noir Velvet Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “black infused with gold shimmer.” It’s a blackened brown with warm undertones and lighter gold shimmer that almost looks like a dirty taupe to me. The finish is just shy of frost and appears more as a pearly sheen. It had decent coverage in a single stroke but was buildable to full opacity in two layers. The color looked patchy when blended and was difficult to keep looking intense/opaque. It creased after six hours of wear. Rouge Bunny Rouge Olive Violetear (P, $19.00) is lighter. Too Faced Everlasting (P, ) is warmer. Zoeva Infusion (P, ) is darker, cooler. MAC Permanent Press #3 (LE, ) is darker, cooler. Tom Ford Beauty Spring 2015 (LE, $42.00) is lighter. Milani Melange (P, $6.99) is darker. Make Up For Ever D326 Black Bronze (P, $21.00) is darker. Hello Kitty The Original (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker, warmer. See comparison swatches/ compare dupes side-by-side.

NARS Filbuste Velvet Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “black.” It’s an inky black with neutral undertones and a satin finish. It had rich color payoff in a single stroke as the consistency was very creamy with some slip, which seemed to impact the wear, as it had bled and migrated as an eyeliner after five hours and creased after four. Urban Decay Crave (P, $18.00) is warmer. Urban Decay Blackout (P, $18.00) is less shimmery, less glossy. MAC Carbon (P, $16.00) is less glossy. Sugarpill Bulletproof (P, $12.00) is less glossy. Make Up For Ever M100 Black (P, $21.00) is less shimmery. Makeup Geek Corrupt (P, $5.99) is less shimmery, darker. NARS Black Valley (P, $25.00) is less shimmery. theBalm #9 (P, $6.50) is darker. Chanel Rêve d’Orient #4 (LE, ) is more shimmery. Giorgio Armani Obsidian (01) (P, $38.00) is more shimmery. Milani Bella Black (12) (P, $4.49) is more shimmery, lighter. Smashbox Blackout (P, ) is darker. Le Metier de Beaute Onyx (LE, $30.00) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #1 (P, ) is darker. Colour Pop Roulette (P, $5.00) is cooler. First 15 dupes listed, see more: See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NARS Glenan Velvet Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “navy.” It’s a dark, navy blue with fine blue pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, which was slightly buildable but was never opaque for me. It had a tendency to skip and “feather” in a way when applied, and it was a shade that easily became patchy when blended. It started to crease after five and a half hours of wear. Clinique Massively Midnight (P, $17.00) is more shimmery. Too Faced De La Mer (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker. Chanel Metamorphose (44) #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter. NARS Dark Rite (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Milani Bella Navy (09) (P, $4.49) is more shimmery, lighter. Viseart Dark Matte #10 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker, more muted, warmer. Giorgio Armani Minuit (02) (P, $38.00) is less shimmery. Colour Pop Etiquette (P, $5.00) is lighter. Kat Von D Estrella (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Parisienne #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Urban Decay Heroine (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker. Make Up For Ever ME224 Navy Blue (P, $21.00) is warmer. NARS Giove (P, $29.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NARS Goddess Velvet Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “pink champagne.” It’s a pinky-peach with lighter gold and pink shimmer. It is a more frosted shade with semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke that tended to thicken and apply unevenly when I tried to build it up, so it seemed best used in a single layer. This shade lasted for six hours before creasing. bareMinerals Custom Made (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler. Estee Lauder Pink Zinc (P, $24.00) is darker. MAC Naked Lunch (P, $16.00) is less shimmery. MAC Artistic License (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery. Too Faced Cheers! (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer. bareMinerals Ball Gown (LE, ) is warmer. Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Haze #1 (P, ) is cooler. Kat Von D Killing Jar (P, ) is less shimmery, darker. MAC Lorelei (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker. Make Up For Ever I520 Pinky Sand (P, $21.00) is brighter, warmer. bareMinerals Future (P, ) is less shimmery. Tarte Rose Champagne (LE, ) is lighter, brighter, warmer. Hello Kitty Apple Pie (LE, ) is less shimmery, cooler. NARS Valhalla (P, $24.00) is lighter. Zoeva Sweeter End (P, ) is more muted. First 15 dupes listed, see more: See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NARS Hollywoodland Velvet Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “pale gold.” It’s a brightened, light-medium yellow gold with a frosted sheen. It had mostly opaque coverage in one stroke, and you could layer and blend without too much work. It tended to keep its color without lifting or turning patchy, unlike the other shades in the formula. The color started to crease after six and a half hours for me, so it didn’t wear that well. Chanel Intuition #2 (P, ) is darker. bareMinerals Surreal (P, ) is darker. bareMinerals Surreal (P, ) is darker. Urban Decay Blunt (P, $18.00) is darker. Milani Bella Sand (02) (P, $4.49) is more shimmery, darker. Guerlain Petrouchka #2 (LE, ) is darker. Too Faced Honey Pot (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Lithe (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker. Viseart Ceska (P, ) is less shimmery. Tarte Dare to Be Gold (LE, ) is darker. Smashbox Champagne (P, ) is lighter. Milani Drenched in Gold (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, darker. MAC Sweet & Sour #1 (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, cooler, lower quality. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NARS Oaxaca Velvet Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “quartz.” It’s a muted, medium-dark taupe brown with warm, rosy undertones and a lighter bronze shimmer. It had sheer coverage in one stroke, and it was noticeably drier than the other shades. I was able to build up the color with three layers, but it was very difficult to blend out the edges. The color lasted for six hours before creasing on me. Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery, brighter. Burberry Pale Barley (102) (P, $29.00) is lighter. Cle de Peau Satin Moon #3 (P, ) is more shimmery. Clarins Garden Escape #6 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer. MAC Quintessential (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, warmer. Urban Decay Juju (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker, brighter. Giorgio Armani #09 (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, darker. Make Up For Ever D562 Taupe Platinum (P, $21.00) is more shimmery. MAC Era (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NARS Reykjavik Velvet Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “grey.” It’s a deepened gray with a cool, bluish tint and satin finish. It had semi-opaque coverage in a single pass, and it was buildable to opaque color with ease, as it was rather creamy. It wasn’t as quick to crease as Filbuste, but it only lasted for five and a half hours. It was more blendable along the edges but still had a tendency to look uneven. MAC Soot (P, $16.00) is lighter, less glossy. bareMinerals Amnesia (P, ) is darker. MAC Nehru (P, $16.00) is less glossy. MAC Cinder (Right) (LE, ) is darker, less glossy. Givenchy Gris Organza (7) (P, $23.00) is lighter. theBalm #26 (P, $6.50) is less glossy. bareMinerals Panorama (LE, ) is darker, less glossy. Tom Ford Beauty Ice Queen #4 (P, ) is lighter. Makeup Geek Paparazzi (P, $6.99) is darker, warmer, less glossy. MAC Typographic (P, $16.00) is warmer, better quality. NARS Transvaal (P, $25.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NARS Sukhothai Velvet Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “shimmering peacock.” It’s a warm, plummy purple base with blackened teal shimmer. It’s a very interesting shade to see in a cream-based formula, but this was so patchy and uneven applied. I really wish this shade performed better, because it’s really quite interesting and somewhat complex, even on the actual eye (most eyeshadows lose their nuances once applied). I saw creasing after five and a half hours of wear. Tarte Fingerpaint Art (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter. MAC Woodsmoke (LE, $16.00) is darker. NARS Malacca (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Kat Von D Queen (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Deep Blue Green (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Metamorphosis Super Shock Shadow Quad

ColourPop Metamorphosis Super Shock Shadow Set
ColourPop Metamorphosis Super Shock Shadow Set

ColourPop Metamorphosis Super Shock Shadow Set ($20.00 for 0.28 oz.) includes four new, limited edition shades of cream eyeshadow. Two of the shades are supposed to be sheer for layering over other products, though I found they were rather semi-opaque, so I found that they tended to consume whatever they were layered over with only slight undertone or brightening/softening of the base coming through. The other two shades are very pigmented, long-wearing, and felt like they had more slip than other satin/matte finishes in the ColourPop range. The shades worked well together, and they wear fairly easy to apply and blend together.

Also worth noting that despite it being incredibly hot during the entire time my order was in transit, everything arrived in tip-top shape (I was afraid there might be melting!).

Bravery is described as a “true medium brown in a matte finish.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a satin finish. I saw very faint shimmer in this one, even though it is listed as a matte. The texture was lightly creamy and easily blended to the skin, while it had good pigmentation and lasted for ten hours without fading or creasing. Sephora + Pantone Universe Russet (LE, ) is less pigmented, warmer. Viseart Taupe (P, ) is lighter. Too Faced Truffled (P, $16.00) is warmer. Colour Pop Farah (P, $5.00) is cooler. Colour Pop Bandit (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer. Make Up For Ever S632 Hazelnut (P, $21.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Twice Baked (P, $18.00) is more shimmery. MAC Texture (P, $16.00) is warmer. NARS Galapagos (P, $24.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Strength is described as a “soft peachy caramel in a satin finish.” It’s a muted, light-medium peachy brown with warm undertones and a very fine, gold shimmer-sheen finish. It had good pigmentation with a lightly creamy consistency that adhered well to the skin and blended out easily. On me, it lasted a full ten hours without creasing or fading. Make Up For Ever S642 Sahara (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler. Makeup Geek Purely Naked (P, $5.99) is darker. Chanel Tisse Vendome #1 (P, ) is more shimmery, darker. Milani Bella Cappuccino (03) (P, $4.49) is darker. Colour Pop Desert (P, $5.00) is darker. Colour Pop Smash (P, $5.00) is darker, cooler. Colour Pop Truth (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Hope is described as a “radiant opal with pink, violet, blue and silver duochrome in a sheer opal finish.” It’s a pinky-white with lighter white and iridescent pink sparkle. It had a very subtle duochrome to it, and it really only becomes stronger over a very dark base color (like black) and appears more iridescent than duochrome on its own. The more sparkly texture can emphasize the lid’s natural texture. It had semi-opaque coverage (it wasn’t sheer at all!) and lasted for ten hours without fading, but there was minor fall out over time. It is similar to Monster Super Shock Cheek, just sparkly and made for the eyes. Too Faced Strawberry Ice (LE, $16.00) is darker. Tom Ford Beauty Crushed Indigo (Left) (LE, ) is lighter, brighter. Milani Bella Rose (29) (P, $4.49) is darker. Makeup Geek Whimsical (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, lighter. Maybelline Petunia Punk (120) (LE, $6.99) is less shimmery. Urban Decay Roadstripe (LE, $18.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler. Make Up For Ever I872 Pearly Pink (P, $21.00) is less shimmery. MAC Ready to Party (P, $20.00) is more shimmery. L’Oreal Strawberry Blonde (LE, $7.99) is less shimmery. Make Up For Ever D868 Crystalline Pink (P, $21.00) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Kindness is described as a “warm red brown undertone with a gold, green, and blue duochrome in a sheer opal finish.” It’s a medium-dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and a blue-to-green duochrome finish with a strong, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation (again, not really sheer) that went on evenly and played well on its own or patted over others. I didn’t have any fading or creasing over a ten-hour period.Sephora + Pantone Universe Castor Gray (LE, ) is darker, cooler. Urban Decay Solstice (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker. MAC Boom Boom Room (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker. Urban Decay Lounge (P, $18.00) is darker, cooler. Makeup Geek Insomnia (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, darker, cooler. MAC Fireside (LE, $21.00) is darker. MAC I’ve Got a Crush on You (LE, $32.50) is darker, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Mondays in Malibu Super Shock Shadow Set

ColourPop Mondays in Malibu Super Shock Shadow Set
ColourPop Mondays in Malibu Super Shock Shadow Set

ColourPop Mondays in Malibu Super Shock Shadow Set ($30.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a set of six cream eyeshadows that range from gilded bronze to warm green to red-brown. The set is limited edition, and the shades aren’t available individually. Overall, it was high-performer set of shades, and they worked well together. The set does run on on the shimmery side, so if you prefer more matte shades, then this might not be a good fit for you. I did notice that a few of these are similar to other shades from the brand, so you may want to check your stash.

Gecko is described as a “soft opalescent silvery green with pink duochrome finish.” It’s a muted, light gray with a flash green to pink duochrome, which is subtle on its own. It can get amplified when blended over a deeper shade or layered over a black base (as duochromes often play well with). I couldn’t tell you why, but I have found great difficulty in capturing in the duochrome finishes of ColourPop’s cream products, no matter what angles I’ve tried to twist my arm, the duochrome is hard to see in a photo. It’s a weaker duochrome in person, but it is visible in person, just not a strong one. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and blendable on the skin and lasted for ten hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Snakebite is described as a “mid-tone warm gold with an ultra-metallic finish.” It’s a brightened, light-medium golden copper with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It is extremely reflective and one of the more metallic shades I’ve tried from the brand. The color payoff was true-to-pan and intense, while the consistency applied with smooth, even coverage that blended well. It wore for ten hours without fading or creasing. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Sand Swoon is described as a “true pastel pink softly sprinkled with gold flecks in a satin luxe finish.” It’s a light-medium, warm-toned pink with a mostly matte finish and then a dusting of gold sparkle that sits more on top of it. It had good color payoff that went on smoothly and evenly. The texture is a smidgen drier compared to the more metallic shades like Snakebite, but it wasn’t dry. The color lasted for ten hours without fading or creasing, but it seemed like most of the glitter had dropped. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Prickly Pear is described as a “warm-toned plum with tons of gold and pink glitter in a metallic finish.” It’s a muted, pinky plum with warm, brown undertones and gold, mauve, and copper flecks of shimmer and larger gold and pink glitter. It had semi-opaque coverage from its base color with a healthy dose of glitter, which did have some fall out when you worked with it (particularly when blending out an edge — if I patted it on, I didn’t see fall out). The texture was a little more emollient, and this shade sheered out a bit more readily than others. It lasted for nine hours without fading or creasing, but there was a little bit of fall out over time. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Mirage is described as a “soft sage green with a champagne gold sheen in a pearlized finish.” It’s a medium, golden green with a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. The texture was lightly creamy with some slip and felt more emollient (or “wet” to the touch) as seems to be a trend with the pearlized/ultra-metallic finishes. It had nice pigmentation that was easy to blend and apply to the lid. It stayed put for ten hours with no fading or creasing on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Hot Tamale is described as a “reddish brown with soft copper sparkles in a satin luxe finish.” It’s a rich, dark brown with warm, red undertones and a soft dusting of copper and gold shimmer. It was intensely pigmented with a beautifully creamy, easily blended consistency that covered well and lasted for ten hours without fading or creasing. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Summer 2015 Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Summer 2015 Super Shock Shadows
ColourPop Summer 2015 Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Flipper Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft tangerine sprinkled with silver and pink glitter in a metallic finish.” It’s a light-medium, golden orange with warm, yellow undertones and silver and pink glitter. The texture has a very smooth, emollient feel to it, though it tended to thicken when applied to the lid unless applied as a sheer wash of color. I didn’t notice more than a few stray sparkles when I was working with it during application, and then there were a few more that fell during wear, but it was negligible. The underlying color still looked the same nine hours later. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Nillionaire Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “warm bronze with a ton of gold and multi-coloured glitter in a metallic finish.” It’s a muted, bronzy brown with khaki undertones and copper and pink glitter over a metallic finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was move around, but the larger glitters seemed to turn the base a little patchy as they moved against the base color. This one seemed to be more prone to having sparkle fall out during application, though once I was done, I only saw two or three sparkles drop during the ten hour wear time. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Shark Attack Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone warm coral with gold duochrome finish in a pearlized finish.” It’s a light-medium, pink-leaning coral with a fine, golden sheen. It had good color payoff with a lightly emollient texture that seemed like it would apply really well, but I struggled a lot with this. It swatched so nicely, but it was difficult to apply as smoothly and as evenly on the lid. It seemed like if you have really, really smooth, taut eyelids, it might go on more smoothly, but it always looked a little patchy on me. I tried applying in five separate times with fingertips and various brushes. A flat, synthetic brush still seemed to work the best for me, and it applied better to the outer third of my lid than the inner or middle of my lid. It lasted for nine hours before fading. I was surprised as I have had the best luck with the pearlized finishes in the range. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Plunge Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “light warm beige with a golden sheen in a pearlized finish.” It’s a light-medium, golden beige with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had fairly good pigmentation with a lightly creamy, blendable texture that deposited color evenly and smoothly. I had no trouble with this one, and it was so easy to use. The color lasted for nine and a half hours without creasing or fading. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop High Tide Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “pale champagne gold in a pearlized finish.” It’s a light gold with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It appears lighter applied, as it has a fairly reflective finish. The texture was blendable, lightly creamy, and adhered well to the skin. It had nice pigmentation and lasted for nine and a half hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Coconut Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “bright peacock teal in a pearlized finish.” It’s a medium-dark, blue with a hint of green and a pearly sheen. It has hints of green and blue pearl in it that gives it a “warmer” look than your typical true blue, but it still leans quite blue. The texture was lightly creamy that felt “wet” to the touch, but it was thin, blendable, and easily spread on the lid. It went on with good color payoff, and with a brush, it seemed even more opaque when I was applying it in practice. It wore well for nine and a half hours without fading or creasing. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

It is a limited edition eyeshadow that is only available as a a gift with purchase, while supplies last (or 5/25) to celebrate ColourPop’s 1-year anniversary. It had mostly opaque color coverage with its base color with a very sparkly, glittery texture that can be a little chunky to work with as it doesn’t go on as smoothly as other shades have in the past. I applied it using a flat, synthetic brush and patted into place, and then I used the edge of the brush to lightly blend out the edge, which yielded the best results, but up-close, it’s not completely smooth or even. It reflects a lot of light and ends up looking lighter applied than in the pan (especially in person, as you move). I had minor fall out while blending out the edges, and then minor fall out while I wore it, though it is surprisingly little fall out for something this sparkly. I didn’t have any fading or creasing over a nine hour period.
