ColourPop Blitzed Super Shock Shadow Set

ColourPop Blitzed Super Shock Shadow Set ($30.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six full-sized Super Shock Shadows. All six are limited edition and exclusive to the set. All six shades wore for twelve hours without creasing or fading, and I only had minimal fall out with the really glittery shades (like a handful, not a disco party!). They were consistent with ColourPop’s formula in general.

Valley Girl is described as a “soft vanilla with tons of gold highlights.” It’s a white gold with warm undertones and a darker champagne gold shimmer and sparkle. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a smooth, creamy consistency that glided on easily and covered well. The color lasted for twelve hours, which is when I removed it, but I saw no signs of wear. Gucci Beauty Cosmic Deco #1 (P) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Moonlight (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Dance 'Til Dawn Eyeshadow #2 (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Party Girl is described as a “soft dusty pink.” It’s a muted, light-medium peachy-pink with warm undertones and barely-there shimmer. The texture was slightly drier than the more shimmery shades in the set, but it wasn’t stiff or difficult to blend out. It had good color payoff with a blendable consistency that lasted for twelve hours. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 5 (LE) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar). Tarte Tartetini (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Fortune (LE) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (95% similar). Guerlain Ors et Merveilles #5 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Smashbox Totally Nude (P) is darker (90% similar). MAC Pink Sands (LE, $16.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Thirsty Girl is described as a “warm bronze drenched with gold glitter.” It’s a molten, gold-tinged bronze with warm undertones and lighter gold glitter. It was intensely pigmented with a really rich, dense, and creamy texture that glided on easily without losing its depth. The glitter didn’t fall out unless I sheered it out a lot, but I didn’t have any fall out while worn (and the color stayed put for twelve hours!). Colour Pop Amira (DC, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #6 (P, $33.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Illamasqua Ore (P, $25.50) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar).

Fan Girl is described as a “cool-toned violet grey.” It’s a blackened navy blue with cool undertones and multi-colored shimmer and micro-sparkle. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a creamy, blendable consistency that felt a bit more emollient than the average shade in the formula. It was buildable to more opaque coverage. This shade lasted for twelve hours on me. Chanel Apparition (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Party Time (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Divergent Erudite Sapphire (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Lapisluxe #2 (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Naval Blue (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

That Girl is described as a “charcoal grey drizzled with lots of silver and gold glitter.” It’s a murky, green-ish gray with warmer undertones and silver and gold glitter. It had so-so color payoff, which I found buildable to semi-opaque coverage, but I couldn’t get it fully opaque. With the cream-based formula, the glitter binds with the base, and it applied smoothly and evenly, while I only had minimal fall out over a twelve-hour period. Giorgio Armani Onyx (05) (P, $39.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Enviable (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar).

Sleek MakeUP Sultan's Garden (LE, $9.99) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Roller Girl is described as a “true black topped with rainbow glitter.” It’s an intense, deep black with subtle, warm undertones and multi-colored sparkle. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a creamy, smooth texture that applied beautifully. It didn’t lose its richness at all, and the glitter was noticeable. This shade lasted for twelve hours with just a smidgen of fall out. Colour Pop Friskie (P, $5.00) is less pigmented, cooler, lower quality (95% similar). Buxom Black Lab (P, $18.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). CoverGirl Molten Black (300) (P, $4.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Tres Chic (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Chanel Signe Particulier Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Signe Particulier Eyeshadow Quad
Chanel Signe Particulier Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Signe Particulier Eyeshadow Quad ($65.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a limited edition palette for the holidays. I normally enjoy the formula Chanel uses with this type of imprint, but this year’s wasn’t as impressive–two shades were silky but powdery and two were drier on the skin. I would have loved to see the gold shade replaced with something distinctively cool-toned, which I think would make it more unique.

Signe Particulier #1 is a pale, very light pink with cool undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a lightly dusty consistency that applied fairly well and blended out easily. The color lasted for seven hours on me before fading. MAC Fresh & Mint #2 (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever I872 Pearly Pink (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Enchanted #1 (LE) is warmer (95% similar). bareMinerals Muse (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Diamond Dusk #2 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Dior Aurora #3 (LE) is darker (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Delightful #3 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Touch of Lilac (P, $12.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior Garden Pastels #3 (LE) is cooler (95% similar). Makeup Geek Illusion (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Sugar Coated (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Violet Blend #1 (LE) is darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Lilac Dream #1 (P) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Signe Particulier #2 is a muted, medium-dark taupe brown with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had so-so color coverage with a slightly dry, powdery texture that diffused well on the skin, but it also tended to sheer out and was harder to keep even as a result. The color faded after seven hours. Dior Exuberante #1 (LE) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Fall in Lust (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Black #6 (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Giorgio Armani Shimmer Greige (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Atelier Nude #4 (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I550 Olive Gray (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Smashbox Dusk (P) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Cloudy Afternoon (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury The Rock Chick #2 (P) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Cinder (Left) (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Steel the Scene (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Disney by Sephora Kill Joy (LE) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Tarte Ring-a-ling (LE) is warmer (85% similar). LORAC Chrome (P, $19.00) is warmer (85% similar). NARS Stag Film (LE, $29.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Signe Particulier #3 is a deep, plummy burgundy with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was noticeably dry, and the eyeshadow applied unevenly as it applied in patches. I had a challenging time getting the color to stick to the eyelid, so I think a slightly tacky primer would be best for this shade. The color lasted for seven hours (what little did make it!), and it was blendable around the edges. Stila Deep Plum (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). bareMinerals Yoga (LE, $14.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Honeymoon #4 (P) is lighter (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Enchanted #4 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever ME828 Garnet Black (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Tarte Fingerpaint Art (LE) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Blackheart (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tarte Boudoir Noir (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Guerlain Cygne Noir #2 (LE) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Mulberry & Bright (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Tease #7 (P) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Rouge Noir (857) (P, $32.00) is lighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Wonderland (DC) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Too Faced Pop (P, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Signe Particulier #4 is a bright, yellow gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation, but the sparkle came loose from the base, so it was messy to use and tended to apply unevenly on the skin as some produc twould stick and the sparkles would sheer out the base. It lasted for seven hours on me with some fall out. Too Faced Praline (LE, $16.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Too Faced Golden Nugget (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D410 Gold Nugget (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). LORAC Gold Leaf (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Codes Elegants #1 (P) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Unlimited (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Triptych (P, $14.00) is darker (95% similar). Maybelline Gold Rush (P, $6.99) is darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Hoopla (LE) is darker (90% similar). Huda Beauty 24K (LE) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar).

bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette

bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette

bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette ($39.00 for 0.65 oz.) includes eight eyeshadows, two blushes, one highlighter, and one bronzer. The palette has $56.47 worth of eyeshadow, $15.33 worth of blush, $7.20 worth of highlighter, and $8.00 worth of bronzer for a total value of $87.00. I liked it, though it’s not quite as impressive as most of the Ready palettes are (they are nearly perfect), and one aspect that I really appreciated was that one row of eyeshadows was warmer and one row was cooler (though not truly cool-toned). The palette is also slim, so it doesn’t take up a lot of space.

Natural is described as a “light buttery peach.” It’s a light, yellowed beige with a semi-matte finish. It had so-so color coverage, but the texture was firmer and thinner compared to the other shades in the palette (and from the Ready line overall). The color lasted for 10 hours (Ready formula is marketed as a 12-hour formula). This version is a lot lighter and much less warm compared to the previous version I tried. Sephora Walking in the Sand (P, $10.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Vespertine (P) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Framed (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar).

Urban Decay Radar (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Ethereal (P) is warmer (90% similar).

Namaste is described as a “sandy brown.” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with a hint of gray and warm undertones paired with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a smooth, silky texture that wasn’t too powdery and blended nicely on the skin. It lasted for eleven hours on me. Sleek MakeUP Entwined (P, $9.99) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Dark Brown (P, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). LORAC Tails & Top Hats #2 (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar).

500 Thread Count is described as an “airy pink.” It’s a very light, warm-toned beige with a satin finish.

Urban Decay Thirteen (P, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). Sephora Flagstone (P, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Super Mom (LE) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar).

Romp is described as an “iridescent lilac.” It’s a muted, medium-dark silvery purple with cool undertones and warmer, gold shimmer paired with a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a very soft, smooth consistency that glided across the skin like butter. On my skin, the color lasted a full twelve hours. The version in the palette seems a bit more metallic, and almost cooler in tone due to the stronger sheen, than the one I had before. Clinique Lavish Lilac (P, $17.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Inglot #420 (P, $6.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Pandemonium (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). YSL Taupe Drop (03) (P, $30.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Flash is described as a “matte purple clay.” It’s a muted, medium-dark purple mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had decent pigmentation, but it could have been more pigmented, though it is buildable. The consistency was soft, smooth, and finely-milled, so it was easy to blend out, and as it wasn’t powdery, it didn’t sheer out too readily. The color started to fade after ten and a half hours of wear. Kat Von D Plum (Contour) (P) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Misty Mauve (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Inglot #358 (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Forbidden (P, $9.99) is darker, warmer (90% similar). LORAC Wisteria (LE, $19.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Anastasia Buon Fresco (P, $12.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Regal is described as a “velvet plum.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and plum and bronze sparkle. The texture was a little drier compared to the other shades, perhaps due to the larger sparkle in it, and it was semi-opaque. This shade wore well for ten hours. Guerlain Ors et Merveilles #1 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Pewter (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Laura Mercier Crystal Beige (LE, $23.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Too Faced Dreamlight (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Summer Fling is described as a “creamy peach.” It’s a light-medium peach with a semi-matte finish.

bareMinerals The Royal Court Ready Face Color Trio

bareMinerals The Royal Court Ready Face Color Trio ($29.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a limited edition, slim set of cheek colors–highlighter, blush, and bronzer–for the holidays. I tried to calculate the value, but I’m not sure if these products are sold individually, so for the highlighter and bronzer, I used the Ready Luminizer Duo and the Ready Bronzer for calculations. There is $11.20 worth of highlighter, $15.33 worth of blush, and $11.20 worth of bronzer, which is a total of $37.73 (bareMinerals lists it as $49.50 value, which it may very well be, given the formulas aren’t quite translating).

Clear Radiance is a light, pale pink with subtle, cool undertones and a luminous sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that didn’t emphasize pores and lasted for eight and a half hours on me (a little longer than eight-hours claimed).

Golden Gate is a muted, medium rosy pink with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that was buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and easy to blend on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading (bonus: bareMinerals only markets these as eight-hour wear, how reasonable!). Tarte Prim (LE, $28.00) is cooler (95% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Capri (P, $58.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). CoverGirl Medium Rose (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar).

Warmth is a medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish.

Laura Mercier Sleek and Chic Eyeshadow Palette

Laura Mercier Sleek and Chic Eye Colour Palette
Laura Mercier Sleek and Chic Eye Colour Palette

Laura Mercier Sleek and Chic Eye Colour Palette ($55.00 for 0.36 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows (some permanent, some limited edition) that run warmer with a mix of frosts and mattes. The palette has some misses, and there’s a general dryness in several of the shades that held the palette back from being really good.

Stellar is a medium-dark taupe with warm mauve undertones and a gray leaning paired with a soft, frost finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty, texture that blended well and lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Tarte Platinum Bling (LE) is darker, cooler (90% similar).

Bamboo is a softened, medium brown with warm undertones and a golden sheen. It had sheer coverage with a very firm texture–it was quite odd, given the rest of the palette is just right or too soft/dusty, but I really had to jab at the surface to get color payoff. The color wore for six hours. Kevyn Aucoin Champagne (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Stila Topaz (P) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Era (LE, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Bronze Glow is a medium-dark, golden bronze with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had good color coverage with a lightly dry texture where some of the sparkles didn’t bind with the base, so there was some initial fall out during application.

African Violet is a medium-dark, rosy plum with larger gold sparkle. The texture isn’t as smooth as other shades, as you can feel the sparkle loosen from the base color. It had a tendency to sheer out on the skin, so I’d recommend using this with a lightly tacky base for best results. The color wore for seven hours with some fall out during wear. Laura Mercier African Violet (P, $23.00) is cooler (95% similar). Hourglass Exposure #5 (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Great Beyond #1 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Cherrywood is a muted, medium-dark plummy brown with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer. It had so-so pigmentation with a drier texture that applied better than I expected, as it was more buildable in practice. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading. NARS China Seas #2 (P, $25.00) is cooler (90% similar). NARS Real Surreal (LE, $28.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Plum Away With Me (LE) is brighter (90% similar).

Plumifique is a muted, medium-dark plum with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. This is cooler and less brown-based compared to Cherrywood (but I think they’re too similar to have both personally). It had decent color payoff with a soft, lightly dusty texture that was thin but blendable and built-up well. The eyeshadow held on well for seven and a half hours. MAC Frock Talk (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever S832 Ash Plum (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). MAC A Medley of Mauves #3 (P, $21.00) is darker (95% similar).

Anastasia Lustrous Lip Gloss Set

Anastasia Lustrous Lip Gloss Set

Anastasia Lustrous Lip Gloss Set ($40.00 for 1.28 fl. oz.) includes eight, full-sized (0.16 oz. each) of the brand’s bestselling Lip Glosses. This set is a great value, as it contains $128.00 worth of Lip Gloss. The formula is supposed to be “ultra-smooth” and “weightless” with the “intensity of a stain” and “the mirror-like shine of a gloss.” Overall, the formula is semi-opaque to totally opaque with a mostly non-sticky consistency (it gets a little tacky towards the end of wear) and a wear time that varies between three and five hours. It was lightly to moderately hydrating while worn, and they applied evenly for the most part. I quite liked the set (and it’s such a great value), but there are a few misses in it.

Gilded is described as a “metallic champagne gold.” It’s a gold-shimmered coppery orange with warm undertones and a metallic shine. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a smooth, creamy texture that glided on and felt comfortable to wear. It applied fairly evenly, and the high-shine finish helped distract from any areas that were imperfectly covered. On me, the gloss lasted for four and a half hours. Bobbi Brown Bronzed Pink (LE, $19.00) is less pigmented (85% similar). MAC Prancin' Dancin' (LE, $20.00) is cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dainty is described as an “opaque retro pink.” It’s a light, peachy-pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. I felt like this was the most disappointing in the set as it was hard to make it look good; it applied with noticeable streaks and tended to settle into lip lines while it wore. The gloss was comfortable to wear at least, and it wore for four hours. MAC Pleasure First (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Bardot Beige (P, $22.00) is lighter, less pigmented (95% similar). Sephora Perfect Nude (04) (P, $12.00) is less pigmented (90% similar). Urban Decay Midnight Cowgirl (P, $26.00) is darker, more muted, less pigmented (90% similar). NYX Tres Leches (P, $5.99) is darker, cooler (90% similar). NARS Vida Loca (LE, $26.00) is darker, less pigmented (90% similar). MAC Kind Kiss (LE, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Peachstock (LE, $15.00) is lighter, less pigmented, warmer (90% similar).

Sunset Strip is described as a “fiery gold-flecked pink.” It’s a medium, coppery-orange with gold, pink, and silver sparkle. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a glossy shine, but it could have applied more evenly. I didn’t have any issues with the sparkle traveling, but I could feel it after two hours of wear. The gloss lasted for three and a half hours and was hydrating. MAC Flash of Flesh (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Revlon Rosegold (DC, $7.49) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). Illamasqua Culminate (LE, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Risky Business (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). MAC Blessedly Rich (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Metallic Rose is described as a “shimmery classic mauve.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark rose with warm undertones and lighter pink and white shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly. The formula was lightweight, comfortable to wear, and hydrating over the five hours it lasted. NARS Fast Life (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Dior Dolly Pink (453) (P, $29.50) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar).

Weekend Barbie is described as a “vivid Mattel pink.” It’s a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with strong, cool blue undertones and a smattering of fuchsia shimmer. It had mostly opaque color coverage that went on very smoothly with a high-shine finish. The gloss lasted for five and a half hours on me, and it was moisturizing while worn. Tom Ford Beauty Erotic (P, $52.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Anastasia Petal (-, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar).

Date Night is described as a “romantic ruby red.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and lighter fuchsia and ruby red shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightweight texture that applied smoothly and evenly. It wore well for five hours on me and was comfortable to wear as it was hydrating. Revlon Fatal Apple (P, $7.99) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay 69 (P, $26.00) is brighter (95% similar). NARS Burning Love (LE, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar).

Socialite is described as a “sophisticated scarlet red.” It’s a rich, medium red with subtle, cool undertones and a creamy finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage with a slightly thicker consistency compared to the other glosses in the set. It was easy to over-apply this color, so I recommend using less than you think initially to get the best application. It wore well for five hours on me and was lightly hydrating.

Black Cherry is described as a “moody plum purple.” It’s a muted, dark burgundy with subtle, warmer undertones and a cream finish.
