Big Surprise

ColourPop Big Surprise Lux Gloss Trio ($27.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a new trio of sheerer glosses, each with some shimmer/sparkle to it, featuring a more gel-cream like texture that was plusher, lightly tacky but not heavy to wear. They have a shorter wear time but are hydrating and comfortable to have on. They’re only available as a set from Ulta but are sold individually through ColourPop directly.

Icicle Pop

Icicle seemed to have a nearly-clear base with flecks of cooler sparkles paired with a high-shine, glossy finish. The consistency was smooth, plush, and more like a gel-cream, so it was a little thicker but not heavy to wear, though there was a touch of tackiness present. It had very sheer color coverage with a smattering of sparkle–it was a shade that seemed sheerer than the formula was designed to be and would have benefitted by being described as transparent/translucent (it wasn’t). It lasted for two hours and felt moisturizing over time.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.16 oz. - $50.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "shine" with a "cushiony soft" texture that "hydrates lips." The brand isn't clear on how pigmented or how sheer the formula is intended to be; they instead they have the "perfect amount of colour all in one." Based on what I can infer from promotional images, their marketing, and typical lip gloss claims (in the industry), gloss is typically sheerer coverage rather than opaque, so based on that, I will be rating on the expectation of medium coverage.

The formula has a smooth consistency that was more like a gel-cream, as it felt denser ("cushiony") without being heavy or tacky. I didn't feel like they were the most forgiving, though, as most shades settled into my lip lines to a small degree. The coverage was sheer to semi-sheer, which resulted in the shades looking more similar on than they looked in the tubes (the initial line-up could have been much more diverse as a result). They lasted between two and three hours and were moisturizing to wear.

There was no discernible taste, and they had a sweet, sugary scent.

So Chilly

So Chilly is a light-medium, more cotton candy pink with subtle, cool undertones and barely-there sparkle over a glossy finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without emphasizing my lip lines. The texture was lightly tacky but smooth, plush, and comfortable to wear and easy to spread across my lips. This shade stayed on decently for three hours and felt hydrating over time.

Big Bow

Big Bow is a light-medium pink with warmer undertones and pink and gold sparkle suspended in a glossy base. It had sheer color coverage that applied evenly and didn’t emphasize my lip lines with good dispersion of the sparkles. It was lightweight, smooth, and more like a gel-cream as it was plush but not heavy, though lightly tacky. It wore well for three hours and felt hydrating over time.

This would make a wonderful present for a tween or younger teen! I wouldn’t mind getting it for my eldest granddaughter except that I know her parents still wouldn’t allow it.

there is no discernible difference between the glosses. I haven’t purchased from CP in over a year and products like these glosses are why.

I wanted to purchase this as a gift for someone this year but after seeing the price tag for three little drugstore lipglosses? Nah, pass. Hello Kitty comes expensive or she doesn’t come at all and I’m not here for it.
