ColourPop Cat Nap Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark copper with hints of pink and copper sparkle over a metallic finish. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was not very buildable, unfortunately. This is a shade that would work best as an all-over wash of color or patted on top of another, more opaque eyeshadow to add sparkle and shine. I didn’t see any indication that was designed to be sheer on ColourPop’s website, as sometimes they release glittery, sheer shades. The texture was smooth, lightly wet, and blendable on the skin, and the eyeshadow wore for ten hours with minimal fallout.

This shade along with Puppy Love are both charity products, where all proceeds from the sale of both shades will be donated to “Best Friends Animal Society and their NKLA effort to Save Them All.” (All proceeds is always nice to see!)

ColourPop Just For Fun Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium pink with soft, yellow undertones and gold glitter. It had semi-opaque coverage, which was somewhat buildable but never looked fully opaque. It had a smooth, lightly wet texture that blended out easily, while the flecks of glitter seemed flatter and adhered better to the skin. The eyeshadow wore well for ten hours without creasing and had just a touch of fallout.

ColourPop x Hello Kitty Mama’s Apple Pie Set

ColourPop School Bus Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop School Bus Super Shock Shadow

Mama's Apple Pie

ColourPop x Hello Kitty Mama’s Apple Pie Super Shock Shadow Set ($18.00 for 0.28 oz.) includes four shades–pearly white, light beige, coral, and deep blue–housed in a cardboard box with the collaboration’s pattern on it. The actual packaging is the simple white of ColourPop’s normal products. I received mine as loose products (I didn’t even realize they were part of a set!) with many other pieces from the collaboration, which is why don’t have any packaging photos. All four shades performed consistently with ColourPop’s range–pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing.

ColourPop x Hello Kitty Hello Pretty Set

ColourPop Yummy Cookies Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Yummy Cookies Super Shock Cheek

Hello Pretty

ColourPop Hello Pretty Makeup Set ($42.00) includes two cheek products, three eyeshadows, and two lip colors. It is presently sold out (I’m writing this the day before), but there’s supposed to be a restock for the Hello Kitty collection at 10AM PST today (11/16), so you might want to keep your eye out if it’s on your list!

Overall, it’s a nice set! I didn’t have any issues with longevity across the included products, and they were, largely, consistent with past experiences with the Super Shock formula (pigmented, blendable, long-wearing) and Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick (long-wearing, pigmented but drying).

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Smoky Eye Bag

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Smoky Eye Bag
MAC Nutcracker Sweet Smoky Eye Bag

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Smoky Eye Bag ($42.50 for 0.50 oz.) includes a full-sized eyeshadow, cream eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara.  The three color products coordinated well together, but the Pro Longwear Paint Pot left something to be desired with regards to pigmentation and blendability, as it had a lot of slip, which gave it sheerer, uneven coverage in practice.

Value

  • Extra Dimension Eyeshadow: $20.00 for 0.04 oz.
  • Pro Longwear Paint Pot: $22.00 for 0.17 oz.
  • Technakohl Liner: $18.00 for 0.012 oz.
  • Mascara: $23.00 for 0.28 oz.
  • Total Value: $83.00

Fathoms Deep is a muted, dark purple with a metallic sheen and cool undertones. It had mostly opaque coverage dry, though it wasn’t quite as deep, and it wore well for six hours. Applied damp, it was fully opaque and wore well for eight hours. MAC Feel the Fever (LE, $21.00) is warmer, more shimmery (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #3 (P, $33.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Nashville (P, $16.00) is more muted, lighter (90% similar). MAC Frost at Midnight (LE, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Inglot #420 (P, $6.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar).

Dream Scene is a light-medium, silvery blue with cooler undertones and a frosted sheen. The pigmentation was just so-so, which I expect is a result of the really emollient, thinner consistency, so it was very prone to sheering out and looking somewhat uneven. It was best as a sheerer wash of color or used as a base underneath powder eyeshadows. On its own, the color wore well for 12 hours, which is great wear but shy of the 15 hours claimed. MAC Water & Ice #1 (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Just Breathe #1 (LE, $21.00) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). Le Metier de Beaute Platinum (P, $30.00) is brighter (90% similar).

Urban Decay Shellshock (LE, $19.00) is cooler, brighter, lighter (90% similar). Maybelline Cool Crush (LE, $6.99) is brighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Iced Blue (P, $28.00) is cooler, darker (85% similar). Buxom Chihuahua (P, $18.00) is warmer (85% similar). Maybelline Seashore Frosts (LE, $6.99) is darker (80% similar). YSL Wet Blue (10) (P, $30.00) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Graphblack is a medium-dark black with a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation in one stroke, and the consistency was soft enough to glide across the lash line without tugging, but it is not so creamy that it slides around. The eyeliner wore for eight hours on me. Urban Decay Perversion (P, $20.00)(100% similar). MAC Definitely Black (P, $20.00)(100% similar). Buxom Call Me (P, $17.00)(100% similar). NARS Via Veneto (P, $24.00)(100% similar). Guerlain Noir Volcanique (01) (P, $37.00) is lighter (95% similar). Sephora Black Lace (P, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar).

NARS Shadow Side Velvet Shadow Stick Set

NARS Shadow Side Velvet Shadow Stick Set
NARS Shadow Side Velvet Shadow Stick Set

NARS Shadow Side Velvet Shadow Stick Set ($39.00 for 0.21 oz.) contains three miniature sized twist-up cream eyeshadows and a miniature sized mascara. I haven’t had great luck with the Velvet Shadow Stick formula, as they are harder to blend and work with on the lid and have shorter-wear (five to six hours). They tend to work best for me as an eyeshadow base rather than as a standalone eyeshadow, though the shades that are closer to the skin tone and have some pearl are the easiest to use as-is. My experience with these three was consistent with past experience–shorter wear and harder to blend and even out on the skin.

Formula Overview

  • Velvet Shadow Stick: $28.00 for 0.05 oz. or $560.00/oz.
  • Mascara: $26.00 for 0.32 oz. or $81.25/oz.
  • Set Value: $50.40 worth of cream eyeshadow, $9.75 worth of mascara
  • Total Value: $60.15

Lucid Dream is a light-medium, golden brown with warm, golden shimmer. It had semi-sheer coverage that was buildable to medium coverage. The consistency was somewhat creamy with slight drag across the skin. It was blendable for a few seconds initially but then became harder to diffuse and even out. It started to crease after six hours of wear. Burberry Nude (No. 002) (P, $29.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Laura Mercier Topaz (P) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Dior Cosmopolite (P, $29.50) is warmer, more shimmery (90% similar). Dior Infinity (751) (LE, $31.00) is warmer (90% similar). CoverGirl Melted Caramel Flame (350) (P, $7.99) is warmer, less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Spotlight (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Kat Von D 3AM (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Suspect (P, $19.00) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Giorgio Armani Cold Copper (09) (P, $39.00) is warmer, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). bareMinerals Santorini (LE) is warmer, more shimmery (85% similar). Smashbox Doe (P) is warmer, lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Dior Smoky Sequins #3 (LE) is more shimmery (85% similar). MAC Crushed Clove (P, $16.00) is warmer, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). NARS Dione (P, $29.00) is brighter, lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). Hourglass Exposure #3 (P) is warmer, lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). Too Faced Jingle All the Way Eyeshadow #4 (LE, $16.00) is warmer, more shimmery (80% similar). Laura Mercier Moonlight (P, $28.00) is warmer, lighter (80% similar). Viseart Gitte (P) is warmer, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Real Surreal is a muted, medium-dark plum with warm, brownish undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation in one pass, but it was creamy enough that it layered to opaque coverage in two to three passes. The consistency was fairly easy to maneuver around the curve of the lid, but it was hard to get soft, diffused edges, even when I used fingertips to blend. It lasted for five and a half hours before creasing on me. Stila Garnet (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Show Plum Love (LE) is brighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever S832 Ash Plum (P, $21.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Higher Power (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Frock Talk (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Hello Kitty Celebrate (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Sensuous (P, $6.00) is cooler, brighter, more shimmery (90% similar). NARS China Seas #2 (P, $25.00) is lighter (90% similar). Lancome Colour du Jour (P, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar). Laura Mercier Plumifique (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Laura Mercier Cherrywood (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Chantecaille Starfish (P, $34.00) is warmer, more shimmery (90% similar). Kat Von D Love Letter (P, $16.00) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Smashbox Headline (P) is cooler (85% similar). Tarte Scarlet (LE, $14.00) is darker (85% similar). bareMinerals Catch Me If (P) is lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). Makeup Geek Twilight (P, $6.00) is lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). MAC Circa Plum (LE, $21.00) is cooler, lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Nunavut is a rich, deep purple with cooler undertones and a satin shimmer. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage in one stroke, but the consistency was so creamy that the color tended to move around as I applied it, so it was hard to get an even layer of coverage. I had the best luck applying one layer, trying to even it out with my fingertip, and then applying another layer on top, but it still looked patchy in places. The color started to crease after five hours on me and migrated towards the corners of my eyes. MAC Lover In Me (LE, $16.00) is less glossy, more muted (90% similar). Tarte Le Cordon Bleu (LE) is less glossy, darker (90% similar). bareMinerals In Vogue (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Inglot #377 (P, $6.00) is less glossy, cooler (90% similar). MAC Ron Ron Run (LE, $16.00) is less glossy, darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
