Showtime

Colour Pop Showtime Super Shock Cheek Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, pinky-lavender base with flecks of larger sparkle and some pearl. It had less of a metallic sheen on my skin as it just had a bit of a pearly sheen. It had medium, buildable pigmentation applied with a brush and semi-opaque coverage applied with fingertips. The texture was spongy but drier to the touch, so it didn’t feel quite as smooth as other shades within the formula. There was a very suble to shift from pink to violet on my skin, but it was hard to see even in person, close-up, and contorting myself to find it. The cream highlighter applied fairly well and blended out nicely on bare skin but wasn’t quite as easy to work with over foundation. It wore well for nine hours on me before it started to fade noticeably.

Parasol

Colour Pop Parasol Super Shock Cheek Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, golden copper with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque pigmentation applied with fingertips (as described) and more medium, buildable coverage when applied with a brush. The consistency was smooth, felt slightly wet to the touch, and had an ultra-light feel on the skin. I had no trouble patting on the color with fingertips for even, diffused application that lasted well for 10 hours on me. This shade is a repromote/returned shade.

Double Down

Colour Pop Double Down Super Shock Cheek Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, very light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation that was medium and buildable when applied with a brush and more opaque when applied with fingertips (as described). The texture felt smooth, lightly spongy, and slightly wet to the touch, which made it easy to apply and diffuse on the skin without it lifting the base or emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. This shade was one of the more reflective shades I’ve come across in the brand’s range. The color stayed on well for 10 hours on me.

Ingredients

Dimethicone, Isononyl Isononanoate, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Ethylhexyl Isononanoate, Isopropyl Myristate, Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Ethylhexylglycerin, Propylene Carbonate, Iron Oxides (CI 77491), Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Colour Pop Mar 9-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is one of two newly released powder eyeshadow palettes released by the brand for their summer collection. I liked most of the shades, and I felt like I could come up with some color combinations, but it did take some thinking to blend the cooler shades with all the very warm-toned hues in the palette, and I found myself limited quite a bit by staying within this palette–it would be better to complement another palette, I think.

About This Series

Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. I know that I tend to use more like five or six shades in a typical look, but I think that four is a happy medium to give a good idea of the “core” color scheme of a look while giving you the ability to lighten/darken as desired. I have listed the colors in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease.

You might see combinations that seem slightly repeated but placement will vary (e.g. a halo placement where the lightest and more shimmery shade is placed on the center) as placement can also create a different effect/look! You might also want to consider incorporating your favorite matte/shimmer shades (as applicable) to increase the versatility of certain palettes. Consider these ideas a jumping off point!

Best & Worst of Colour Pop Ultra Glossy Lip (Spring 2018)

Colour Pop Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is supposed to have “hi-shine” with a “non-sticky” texture that “feels amazing” and includes five finishes “from 3-D pearl to sheer tinted colour.” They are designed to be a sheerer formula, so many shades are sheer with a smattering of shimmer or sparkle and then a few are more tinted with sheer to semi-sheer coverage but no shimmer. Each gloss has a short, brush-type applicator, which worked better than I expected and didn’t leave streaky results behind (in general). They had a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

The “Tinted” finish (“glass-like shine with tint of sheer colour and no shimmer”) was the least consistent–sometimes prone to unevenness and getting into lip lines, particularly with deeper/richer shades, whereas Pearlescent (“glass-like shine with subtle shimmer”) and Prismatic (“glass-like shine with floating multi dimensional pearl and glitters”) are sheer to translucent with the major difference being finer shimmer in the Pearlescent finish and larger, more glitter-like particles in the Prismatic finish. Both finishes tended to look plush and more smoothing on my lips. The Creme finish is a “medium-coverage gloss with a creamy finish that does not contain any pearls or glitter.” The Metallic is described as a “full-coverage gloss with a mix of pearl and metallic finishes.”

The wear time varied by shade but the sheerer ones tended to wear between two and three hours as the formula was, indeed, non-sticky and smooth, which made them lighter-weight and comfortable to wear but shorter wearing. A lot of the sheerer shades ran together, so I would recommend just picking up one or two rather than several as the differences are likely to be lost! Also, keep in mind that sheerer lip colors can look different from person to person due to much of the natural lip color coming through.

Colour Pop Sol 9-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is the brand’s newest release for summer that features nine vibrant, warm-toned hues across matte and shimmery finishes. There were a few looks to be created out of the palette on its own, though one will likely want to grab a few deeper, darker shades as well as a complementing brow bone/highlight shade. I did feel like it was repetitive, though, with technically different looks when it came to shades used by the end result as more same-y than I’d like.
