ColourPop Catnap & Puppy Love Super Shock Shadows

Catnap

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!)

Tarteist Pro Glow to Go

Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow to Go Highlight & Contour Palette ($23.00 for 0.24 oz.) includes two highlighters and one contour powder. It’s a compact trio housed in a slim, black cardboard palette that had a velvety feel on the outside (like NARS’ packaging in a way). I think it will work for someone who likes warmer, more intense highlighters and has use for the tone and depth of contour powder. The problem with something like this is that it’s just not going to work for all skin tones and undertones (I always want brands to at least put out a cool and warm version, if not a light/medium/dark).

Catrice Coral Me Maybe Illuminating Blush

Coral Me Maybe

Catrice Coral Me Maybe Illuminating Blush ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a pop of light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and fine, flecks of gold shimmer strewn on top of a more matte finish. It appeared more satiny on the skin, once I had a chance to blend and buff the powder onto my cheeks, but it definitely had a subtler finish, which would make it ideal for someone who doesn’t like a lot of noticeable shimmer in their cheek color.

The Illuminating Blush formula is supposed to have a mix of “subtle shimmer” and a “light pearl” that adds color and a “soft glow” to the cheeks. The consistency was soft but powdery, a little drier and looser overall, so it was prone to sheering out and was harder to build-up coverage from its naturally medium coverage level, but it was possible with three to four layers. I noticed fading around the edges after six and a half hours of wear.
