Down in New Orleans

Colour Pop Down in New Orleans Disney Designer Cheek & Lip Duo ($18.00 for 0.43 oz.) includes a soft, plummy brown blush and a deep, copper-red liquid lipstick. Both products performed consistently with their formulas, though both were varying degrees of more pigmented than described (so that might not be a deal-breaker for some). These products can also be purchased individually if desired.

Kissin' a Frog

Kissin’ a Frog is a muted, medium-dark plum with strong, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had very, very fine shimmer through it that gave it a soft, natural-matte finish when applied and blended out on my skin. The pigmentation was semi-opaque and buildable, so a bit more pigmented than described. The consistency was soft, a little dusty but easy to work with. It stayed on well for eight hours o me before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.21 oz. - $33.33 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to go on "smoothly" and have a "natural and healthy flush" that has "long wear" and "can be layered to your desired intensity." It is a lightly to moderately powdery powder blush with semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff. The consistency has a drier, thinner feel and though it feels silky to the touch, I found it the type of powder blush can be tricky to blend out evenly on the skin, depending on one's skin type or base preferences. The drier the skin/base, the better the formula would blend, but any natural oils or slip caused the blush to go on unevenly and was difficult to blend out. The wear was between seven and eight hours on me on average.

Prince Naveen

Prince Naveen is a deep, coppery red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium to semi-opaque coverage in a single layer of product, which was buildable to nearly full coverage with a second layer. The texture was lightweight, whipped and a little watery (which I know doesn’t sound possible), so it spread evenly across my lips and dried down within a minute to a mostly matte, transfer-resistant finish that didn’t feel clingy. It wore well for five hours and felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to have "medium buildable coverage" that has a "soft, diffused" effect. It's a more amped up take on their Blotted Lips concept or a slightly "washed out" take on their Ultra Matte/Ultra Satin range. The formula is much thinner--almost weightless--and spreads evenly with a single layer. I'd argue that most shades were often closer to semi-opaque rather than medium and buildable--and I used only what was on the doe-foot applicator to apply (without going back for more) for both top and bottom lips.

The consistency was airier, light, thin, and spreadable with a soft dry down that didn't feel like it was wholly locked in (like Ultra Mattes) but had significantly less transfer than a traditional lipstick (or even the Ulta Satins). They were not the most forgiving of lip texture or lip lines, but they were more flattering than most formulas I've tried that are similar in effect and coverage. Some shades had more of a matte finish shortly after application while others had subtle shine that wore down to a matte finish within an hour or less.

Longevity ran anywhere from three to six hours with some shades leaving subtle stains behind, and the formula felt mostly non-drying for me. It had a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

I am really loving this release from ColourPop. The packaging is super cute and the products have been beautiful. I have a rather huge shopping cart at the ColourPop site but I frequently do and then end up not actually ordering. With ColourPop I always think I should wait before ordering because next week they are going to release something even more amazing!

I love these. The lip is killed by overduping, but Iā€™d love it if the blush were a single. Frog is my spirit animal. Oh, well, i could always use Satin Love (which pulls too coral on me for my taste) and Foolish or Mind Trick. And I must see the movie. All the Disney stuff that has appealed to me has been NOLA and Tiana inspired.

Bought kissing a frog on a whim and it’s definitely powdery but I just switched to a softer brush and it worked perfectly. Color is really pretty.
