Heartthrob

ColourPop Heartthrob Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bright chartreuse green with warmer, yellower undertones and slightly greener shimmer. The more opaque the product was, the greener and less yellow it appeared. It had a cool, watery consistency to the touch that dried down within 10 seconds to a transfer-resistant finish, so you’ll want to work one eye at a time. It had mostly opaque, buildable coverage that applied evenly and lasted well for 10 hours 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.

WARNING: This formula seems to dry out within months; some readers report a couple of months and others more like a six-month window. I don't keep the majority of cream-based products (since I don't return to most products after reviewing), including these, but of the few I still have, there is a definite change in consistency--slightly drier--after six months, sometimes more or less. I had a couple that were closer to the year mark, and one was still usable but the other was quite dried down.

Scandal

ColourPop Scandal Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a deep, tarnished gold with warm undertones and a lightly sparkling, metallic sheen. It had opaque pigmentation in one layer, which applied evenly and blended out well over my lid. The texture was cool, water-like initially but dried down in about 10 seconds and was very transfer-resistant from there. It stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or creasing.

Memoir

ColourPop Memoir Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a pale, greenish-yellow with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation paired with a lightweight, watery texture that set to a very transfer-resistant finish within 10 seconds of being applied to my skin. It wore well for 10 hours without fading.

These dry out much to quickly for me bother purchasing them. They’re very reasonably priced, but it’s so wasteful to get so little use out of them.
