Pressed

ColourPop Pressed Metallic Colour Stix ($6.00 for 0.023 oz.) is a brighter, medium berry with cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, though it was a thinner, slightly clingier formula so it wasn’t as comfortable to apply and to layer up on the lid (but was more comfortable as an eyeliner). It lasted for seven hours before creasing on me.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.023 oz. - $260.87 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "ultra pigmented" in "one swipe" while being "long wearing" and "water-resistant." There are two finishes: matte and metallic, and the initial release included two shades from each finish, so the overview is based on those four shades, which is not a ton of shades to go off of!

One of the four pencils was drier, stiffer, and was prone to the point snapping off during application. The other three were creamier with the metallic shades being more emollient than the remaining matte shade. The pigmentation varied from shade to shade; it ranged from medium to opaque with some being more buildable than others.

The performance was more consistent with three of the four shades applying comfortably with somewhat even initial layers. They were blendable for five to 10 seconds before they dried down to more budge-proof finish. They didn't feel heavy or clingy on my lids, and while they were creamy, they did not feel slippery as they were drying down so they did not settle into fine lines or creases during the dry down.

I was able to apply them directly from the pencil to my eye area, but I found a brush gave me a more even application and helped me blend out the product without losing some of the coverage compared to application with a fingertip. The shades lasted between six and eight hours before creasing on me.

Venus Slipper

ColourPop Venus Slipper Metallic Colour Stix ($6.00 for 0.023 oz.) has a deeper, warm plum base with dirty bronze sparkle throughout. The sparkles were large enough to make it harder to apply the color evenly and smoothly as they tended to clump up on themselves as I tried to build up the coverage.

This was more workable as an eyeliner than an all-over lid product as it was too quick to dry down, so it was difficult to diffuse the edge and get an even application of color. It stayed on well for six and a half hours before creasing on me.

U Grow Girl

ColourPop U Grow Girl Matte Colour Stix ($6.00 for 0.019 oz.) is a rich burgundy with cooler undertones and a matte finish. I’ve found this occurs with cream-based burgundy hues but it darkens substantially as the color is built up, which often results in unevenness, like it did with this product.

The texture was lightly creamy, denser, and almost tacky, and the latter seemed to make it harder to get a really smooth, even level of coverage. It was incredibly difficult to blend out at all on the lid; it could work for a starker, more defined shape but not for something that you wanted to soften along the edges. The color wore for seven hours before creasing on me.

Thinking about getting Venus Slipper to just pop on my lower lashline. The shade itself sounds like a pita to use any other way.

Same. I initially was interested in this to use as a liner so the fact that it doesn’t work great when used all over doesn’t bother me in the least. Venus Slipper is just so different and I love the sparkles so I’m going to pick it up.

I ordered Venus Slipper yesterday, based on the swatch earlier. I’m going to use it on the lower lashline, so I think I’ll be OK using it. I love the colour, quite unusual and very pretty, but with a bit of an edge.
