Put Me First

ColourPop Put Me First Target Colour Stix Duo ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) includes a shimmery coral and shimmery brown twist-up cream eyeshadow. They were slightly better than the average Colour Stix but not amazing. As a FYI, the duos for Target contain larger-sized Colour Stixx (0.048 oz. each), so they have a more “jumbo” feel consistent with other twist-up eyeshadow pencils.

Normcore

Normcorn is a light-medium coral with warmer, more orange-leaning undertones and a metallic finish.

  • Opaque pigmentation in one layer, hard to layer
  • Lightly emollient, smooth, comfortable to apply
  • Harder to diffuse along the edges, best with fingertip
  • Moderate wear (~7 hours before creasing a bit)

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.019 oz. - $315.79 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.

Because I need a wax-based coating under my eyeshadow AGAIN, I’m liking these 2 for that purpose. Definitely getting a few new Nyx ones next week, because those are the only thing that can repel my damnable allergy tears and preserve most of my lid work! Just a super thin coat over my primer helps so much with that, and I had forgotten how well!
