Weekend Warrior

ColourPop Weekend Warrior Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.20 oz.) includes four shades of powder eyeshadow–yes, powder!–the brand’s first release featuring their new formula. The pressed powder formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety” and “silky” texture that is “long-wearing.” It’s a solid formula, so I’m definitely curious to try and see more shades from them in the future but hope we’ll see a little refinement over time. The texture of their formula was soft, a little powdery, but there was substance to it–I wouldn’t say dense, but it wasn’t thin or prone to sheering out, just that there was a lot of excess product kicked up in the pan and some fallout during application. The pigmentation varied from shade to shade, though they were all buildable. I had no trouble blending out any of the four shades, and they lasted between seven and eight hours on me.

Burberry Fawn Rose Liquid Lip Velvet ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a soft, dusty pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had rich color payoff that applied with smooth, even color coverage. For a lighter shade, the texture was more flattering than I expected, and it lasted longer than average at five and a half hours (though not quite the eight promised!). It had a lightweight, more mousse-like consistency that wasn’t thick or heavy but not as runny as some liquid lipsticks. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

The Liquid Lip Velvet formula is described as having “rich pigment, smooth application” and a “velvet finish that lasts up to eight hours” that is “non-drying.” Overall, the formula is fantastic for those who want the fluidity of a liquid product without the drying aspect of more traditional liquid lipsticks while not sacrificing wear time. The formula does not dry down completely, so there will be transfer, but the product is so pigmented that the color lasts awhile. I’ve found the colors to wear between six and eight hours and easily survive a solid meal. The liquid lipstick has a smooth, velvety consistency that is almost weightless (I forget I’m wearing it) that was never drying and always comfortable to wear. A pleasant surprise was that the formula was unscented (with no discernible taste either), which is not the norm with Burberry’s products.

MAC Beautifully Bare Cremesheen Glass ($21.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium plum with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a creamy, smooth consistency that wasn’t sticky at all. The gloss was comfortable to wear, and though it settled into lip lines, it applied evenly and did not appear streaky. It lasted for two and a half hours and was moisturizing over time.

Cremesheen Glass is supposed to be creamy, hydrating, and sheerer. In general, Cremesheen Glass tends to have a creamier, milkier quality to it, which makes it comfortable and hydrating to wear, but it often looks streaky, settles into lip lines, and is shorter wearing.
