Strawberry Jam

Colour Pop Strawberry Jam Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bright pop of orange with a warm, reddish undertone and lighter, warm golden peach shimmer and larger sparkle. It was richly pigmented with a lightweight, thin texture that felt watery, yet almost mousse-like, and a little went a long way. The eyeshadow applied evenly to bare skin, and it applied best with fingertips (for more of a wash of product) or a flat, synthetic brush (for more intense coverage). It stayed on nicely for 10 hours without fading or creasing, though there was a smidgen of fallout over time.

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.

Strawberry Jelly

Colour Pop Strawberry Jelly Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bright, red-coral with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of gold and pink micro-sparkle over a satin-like finish. It had good pigmentation, though I struggled to get really even, opaque coverage when I wore it on my inner lid (which has more fine lines/texture). The consistency was lightweight, watery, and thin–it felt wet and cool to the touch but had an airier, mousse-like texture. The edges blended out with ease, and the color lasted for over 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

These pack one potent punch of color and sparkle! Strawberry Jelly is gorgeous. Not sure if it would look quite right with my eye color, but WOW!

I don’t have any experience with this product from CP, but personally, I’d be afraid that these would dry out pretty quickly.

There’s a little inserted cap that helps seal it under the lid. I’ve only had mine (“Foxes”) for a month. You only need very little- I’m still using what’s on the inserted cap from six uses and there’s still plenty! It’s great for all over lid and great as a liner. It dries quickly and doesn’t crease on me (and I have oily lids.) I believe they’re $8 and I *highly* recommend it.

Hi Christine,

Have you checked your older Jellymuch eyeshadows to see if they have dried up? I had two that completely dried out after less than two months and only a handful of uses. I kept the stopper and sealed it tightly. I’m honestly appalled that Colourpop is still making these since I can’t be the only one this happened to.

Side note: I have the Butter London Glazen Eyegloss, whom Colourpop copied, and those are still going strong a year later.

PS…. love your website!

Hi Liz,

I don’t keep many of the cream-based products from ColourPop (they just release too much, and my photo quality is consistent enough that I don’t feel I require a physical product for comparison that is worth the storage space, so I pass on cream products shortly after testing them), but the two I still have from spring (March) are still okay. I definitely wish they were in a squeeze-tube (I find the jar packaging to be messy), though.

I have 4 shades of the Jelly Much eyeshadows and for me they were a waste of money as they dried up fairly quickly and became unusable, even though I was especially careful to replace the lid quickly etc, etc. Even though I love all the shades I won’t be purchasing any more.

I hope they come out with mattes because they would make a great base. I’m pretty into Strawberry Jam. I have Foxes though. I just love golden colors. /sigh
