Origami

ColourPop Origami Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The pigmentation was mostly opaque in a single layer with a smooth, watery consistency that was thin and wet-feeling as soon as it touched my skin, but it didn’t sheer out or turn patchy when I diffused the edges and spread it across my lid area. It didn’t blend out easily after it had set, though, which gave me about 10 to 15 seconds of playtime. It wore well for 10 hours without flaking 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.

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.

Short Circuit

ColourPop Short Circuit Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a deep, reddish copper with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, though it wasn’t nearly as metallic as I expected–it even seemed to soften further after it set on me. The consistency was smooth, thin, and definitely felt water-based as the product felt cool on my skin but did dry down quickly (about 10-15 seconds) and set to a transfer- and crease-resistant finish that lasted for over 10 hours.

Ventura

ColourPop Ventura Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a pale, iridescent lavender with cool undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had medium to semi-opaque pigmentation, but it seemed to have a chalkier, almost white base that was most present after it had dried down. The texture was wet to the touch and yielded a cooling sensation on my skin, but it dried down and set within 15 seconds. Once set, the eyeshadow stayed on well for 10 hours without moving or creasing.

We Jammin'

ColourPop We Jammin’ Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a pale, white gold with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had one of the most reflective finishes within the shades released in the formula, and it was extremely brightening (and possibly too intense for brow bone highlighting for most preferences but lovely on the lid and inner tearduct!). The pigmentation was fantastic and applied evenly without sheering out or becoming patchy when blended along the edges–just make sure to do your blending as it’s drying down (about 10-15 seconds). It wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

We Jammin’ is the one I am definitely getting out of this particular set! I have been waiting for a white gold duochrome eyeshadow for what feels like forever. Most haven’t quite lived up to one I used multiple pans of from ’85 till’ 93. This one just may be it.

oooh these look so pretty. Do you think these will work great as face highlighter too? I’ve always had trouble with liquid/creme highlighters because they’re a lot sheerer/subtle than powder ones. but these look so pigmented

It so great that these are getting good ratings! I love Colourpop and especially love when they come out with something new and unique and it’s actually a great product!

Some nice eyelighter (get it? eye+highlighter? ha! … [ahem] .. sorry) shades there. I’d go for Short Circuit if I didn’t already have three copper ColourPop eyeshadows.

These are all awesome! They look really good on you Christine! I think I want all of them, especially at the price. These are WAY more affordable than the Butter London glazen eyes which I only have 2 of because they are so pricey. If you haven’t tried it yet, I love layering a similar eyeshadow over these to give a more powerful version of the color.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
