Crystal Castle

Colour Pop Crystal Castle Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a soft white with a pink-to-peach shift, though it often looked like a warm, iridescent pink on me with a chalkier base. I found that this finish, which seemed more white-based and had finer shimmer than others in the formula, did not apply as evenly to my skin and looked drier once they set in place. I expected it to brighten more when I placed it on my inner tearduct. It had semi-opaque pigmentation and had a texture that was very wet and “cool” to the touch, but it dried down fairly quickly so I didn’t have to worry about it creasing or moving while it was setting. It lasted for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.23 oz. - $34.78 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "high impact" in a "single swipe" that's longwearing, "won't crease, fade or transfer" and "dries down to a powder finish with zero fall out." These are water-based, so they feel wet and cooling when initially applied, but the reality is that so little product is needed to get coverage on the lid that I didn't feel it was watery or thin when I actually patted it onto my lid with a brush.

I would recommend using less than you think you'll need, and while fingertips can be used to apply, I liked the control of flat, synthetic brushes gave me as fingertips (for me!) applied far more product than needed. If you over-apply, it can feel wet and take longer to dry down, and it ends up taking too long and can pull into creases/fine lines on the lid. If I used about what I needed (there was some wiggle room), it dried down quickly and set to a transfer-resistant/crease-resistant finish. It was harder to blend out once dry, though, and if I wasn't careful, more vigorous blending could disturb and cause the eyeshadow to flake slightly.

They are easier to use than they look, and I think they're quite good overall, though a couple of shades were less stellar. They have a high-shine finish, though I think the more metallic powder and cream eyeshadows give a similar look that I wasn't convinced that the finish on these was above and beyond products that might be easier to use/more user-friendly. I'm not sure that the pot was the best way to go, as the product dries out extremely quickly; to the point where I would advise closing the product after you've taken product out of it, don't let it sit open while you're applying the rest of your makeup--you will see and feel parts of it dry out.

I found the packaging to be rather messy, and I have bits of product along the edge of the jar, along the rim, and it's fiddly to move the stopper from the opening to the lid and back again. I wonder if a squeeze tube might be less messy and make it easier to control the amount of product picked up while also preventing the product from drying out too readily.

Wide Awake

Colour Pop Wide Awake Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bright, light-medium gold with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The texture was watery and cool to the touch, but it dried down quickly without getting into my crease or fine lines but I was still able to diffuse and blend out the edges. It lasted nicely for over 10 hours without creasing or fading on my lid.

Into Focus

Colour Pop Into Focus Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light-medium, grassy green with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had good color coverage, though it wasn’t quite opaque, and I found it built up a bit more on the lid than it appeared when I swatched on my arm. The eyeshadow could have gone on a bit more evenly, but it wasn’t noticeable from a normal distance but I could see it in the close-up photos. The consistency was lightweight, watery and cooling as it initially was placed o my lid, but it dried down fairly quickly and stayed in place for over 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

Hallucinogenius

Colour Pop Hallucinogenius Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) seemed to have an almost translucent base with blue-to-violet shifting sparkle and finer pearl, though it read a little “copper” in base when I photographed it but didn’t appear that way so much in person. The texture was lightweight, wet to the touch, and felt cool and watery when applied to bare skin. It had medium, buildable coverage but was hard to get fully opaque coverage. It would work well for layering over eyeliner or other eyeshadows to add pop of sparkle and shine. It lasted well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

I’ve been very curious about these…lately, I’ve only worn glossy eye looks…typically using milk eye vinyl or flesh beauty eye and face glosses on top of cream eyeshadow….Mac used to make glosses in a pot with color in them (i have orange and a black with sparkles) but they discontinued them last year or the year before…would these compare to any of the above in terms of finish? glossy finish with color and shimmer? or are they just a regular cream eyeshadow, with the texture of a mousse but only a satin finish and not the wet glossy finish? Would really appreciate your input!

Oh what a bummer I was ready to order these if they were a glossy finish….I’m really surprised CP hasn’t come out with eye glosses they are such a trendy makeup brand and they haven’t jumped on this….I really don’t wanna spend the $$ on the suratt ones ūüė£ would love to see mid range or affordable colored glosses

Intrigued by Hallucinogenius — seems like a really good way to get a kind of “wet” look without doing the Vaseline lid trick (that fails with any wear).

I like hallucinogenius as well. But who would think by the pot, that it would be a dupe for the SSS new magic, that looks white in the pot? That is mighty strange. The gold and green give a wonderful Christmas eye look, just gorgeous. I find the air holes a tad creepy, tbh. I’d be patting them out more than using the shadow.
