So, I picked this palette up at my local Ulta a few days ago. I'm not sure if maybe mine is a bad batch of these or what, but I've tried using this palette three times now, and honestly this is probably one of the worst eyeshadow palettes I've ever owned. Nevarro Sand isn't too bad, it has the same quality as older Colourpop mattes I own, but it is very loose and powdery in the pan. Creed has sparkles in it, and they do get everywhere, but that's pretty normal for Colourpop's matte sparkle formula. Otherwise its easy to use and blend, and can be mixed with Nevarro Sand pretty well without starting to look muddy. Tatooine Glimmer, in my opinion, is the best performing eyeshadow in this palette. Its smooth and feels almost creamy. Its very easy to use, and has minimal fallout even with a dry brush, but I prefer to use my fingers. Clan of Two just fades into nothing very quickly on me. I have tried using it over two separate primers, on set concealer, with a wet brush. Even just swatching it onto my arm, it fades away into nothing but some lime greenish looking sparkles within twenty minutes to a half hour. Imperial Credit and Beskar Steel also fade away very quickly on me, but not as quickly. They both also have a lot of fallout, and feel very very powdery, and just didn't want to really stick to my skin unless I used a wet brush. This is the Way, Mythosaur, and Bantha Tracks just crumble off of my eyes almost instantly. I don't really understand how or why, but all three shades just will not sit on my eyelids, and end up all over my under eyes and cheeks.

I absolutely love this palette, but there is a learning curve to it that makes it lose a star. It is very powdery and loose, and also very pigmented. All you need is a small dab with a brush, instead of a normal swirling motion, otherwise its too much product and its impossible to blend out and you just look like you have a nasty bruise. This palette also has A LOT of fallout, and you NEED a good primer for shades to not crease or otherwise disappear. But this palette is just so great at doing grungy, darker, moody looks. Its a great fall palette. And there are enough neutral and warmer brown shades to do a more subdued look with it, as well. It doesn't look like it at first glance, but it is a very versatile palette. The shimmers are amazing, as well, and can really change a look when layered over any of the matte shades. If you can find a palette with the better formulation, definitely go for this palette.

This is another of those pallets that just kinda blends everything into an ugly orange on my skin If I just use this by itself. When paired with another pallet, or with Super Shock Shadows, though, I can pull off some decent looks with it. It needs a primer to last any length of time on my lids. Formula seemed a little dry and powdery compared to other mid-range palettes I own, but its still easy to use and blend. The mattes are alright, but the shimmers are quite decent, especially Ember and Scorched.

I picked up the original Venus a while back, and while the colors look absolutely ghastly on my skin tone, the formula is quite good. With a decent eye primer, everything lasts through the day, with some minor fallout with the shimmery shades, but that's a little normal, I think. Mattes are quite pigmented, with the shimmer shades being able to be built up for impact. Blending seemed easy enough, but my skin just made everything kinda muddle together into a very gross shade of orange, but I let a friend try it, and she had no issues with getting colors to stay true on her. In the end, I just gave her the whole pallet, and she loves it.

I received this in a ColourPop mystery bad a while back, and the color is absolutely hideous on me! Its almost like a pastel pink, and just makes me look like a zombie. But, the formula isn't too bad, which is what I'm focusing on. It feels similar to the Creme lux lipsticks, but tacky feeling, even after blotting lightly with a tissue. It also disappears very quickly. Forget eating or drinking unless you want to reapply, and talking or moving your mouth at all makes it wear off as well. I really didn't notice this masking my lip cracks, and it bunched up on some dry skin I had. It didn't feel dry, though, but I have no idea if it moisturized my lips. Even with its flaws, I can see this being a hit with the lip gloss crowd, since in my opinion it wears similarly to a gloss, just without the crazy shine.

I have a few of these Maybelline Superstay's now, and Seductress is my favorite one. Its a light nude. It takes forever to dry down, though, and it remains tacky even once its dry. Once its on, though, its on. This is the only liquid lip I have used that lasts through everything. Greasy food? Being a smoker? A severe snowstorm? This stuff wont budge. It is difficult to remove, as a result, however. Want to get rid of the tacky feeling? Apply a light coat of translucent powder to your lips, and really rub it in. Works like a charm, and doesn't affect the color much, if at all.

My current go to for a quick simple and easy "one and done" look. Just sweep some all over the lid, and done. On my skin this looks like an olive green with silver and lighter green flash, and its stunning. Wear time over primer is usually 9ish hours before it starts to disappear into my crease. This super shock is pigmented, so a little goes a long way.

I own Half Moon, Short Circuit, and Bungalow. Half Moon is my favorite, as its a duochrome. This is a "jelly" eyeshadow, but its more like a liquid, but in a pot. It sets very quickly, so blending is difficult, even though application is as simple as swiping some on with a finger or brush. Clean up can be easily achieved with a qtip and some water. Wear time can be a little tricky. If I use these by themselves, I can get 8+ hours of no creasing, flaking, or fading. If I layer shadow over them, or layer another jelly shadow over them, they begin to flake off almost immediately. These shadows do not play well with other shadows! They look great on their own though, or layered OVER other eyeshadows. These do dry out quickly, but adding a few drops of tap water, closing the lid and the cap, and shaking it up very good will bring these back to life.

*I bought this online at the Ulta website, and I'm not sure if mine was old, so keep that in mind. I've since destashed it, so I cannot check when it was manufactured.* This was absolutely terrible. It looked like a beautiful oxblood red color in the jar, but I couldn't for the life of me get any of it out of the jar! I thought this would be similar to the Maybelline Color Tattoo's, since they look so similar, but while the Color Tattoos are easy to apply with a finger or a dense brush, this just felt like wax mixed with petroleum jelly. I couldn't get anything onto my fingers no matter how much I rubbed the creme, aside from a waxy slightly pink sheen. It didn't feel dried out, based on my prior experience with Color Tattoos and ColourPop Super Shock Shadows drying out, so I have no idea if its supposed to be a sheer wash of color, but I would have had to layer on the whole jar to get it as dark as I thought it would be. Using a brush just dyed my bristles an ugly rust color, but none of the pigment ended up on my hand while I was trying to swatch. This was just a total failure of a product for me.

I own a bunch of these, and I'm gonna get it out the way here and just say DO NOT BOTHER WITH THE LIMITED EDITION, OR DARK SHADES. Seriously. All of the Goth-O-Graphic ones are too sheer to see and very very uneven. The Halloween '18 ones were patchy and flaked. Every dark shade in the core line applies uneven, and touch ups make them flake. Ride on My Copper, Bali In Love, Satin Sheets, and Honey Glaze are awesome, though, and I highly recommend those ones. Those 4 are a little thin in consistency, but apply pretty evenly, don't flake if you reapply, and last a long time even though they're not transfer proof. You can even put these on top of regular liquid lipsticks without any issues. I use Satin Sheets all the time over lip colors that are too dark for me to wear, and it works amazingly for that.

Black Unicorn looks gorgeous, I'll give it that, but application is a pain. This is basically glitter chunks of varying sizes suspended in a liquid base, and the doe foot applicator is awful, so no matter what you just make a giant mess. The glitter applies patchy, and you really have to pack it on in order to get lips even remotely resembling what is advertised on the lime crime website. Plus this stuff BURNS as its drying down on your lips. Seriously, it feels like someone ripped your lips off, than poured rubbing alcohol over the wound. And its supposed to smell like some kind of blue berry or blackberry but it just smells like straight cat pee. I have 6 of these, and they all smell like cat pee. I do not recommend.

I own the shades Appy, Lay Over, Pinkies Up, LA Lady, Angel City, Liquid Courage, and Still Crazy. All of them apply well, and are creamy and easy to swipe. No pulling, no opacity issues, no lip drying. After blotting lightly with tissue, they also last just as long as a normal stain, unless you're eating a particularly messy meal. Plus a lot of these are "dupes" of more "prestige" lipsticks, so you can try a shade to see how it looks on you before committing to a more expensive lipstick. I subtracted half a star just because the CP website is very misleading when it comes to how these look in person as opposed to advertised, but researching actual swatches helps. I highly recommend these!

I own 5 of these (Man Eater, 3-Way, Flitter, Coquette, and Kween), and I dont really think any of them are worth the money. They all look completely different than what is advertised on the ColourPop website, and none of them fully dry down. They all transfer, and remain tacky enough to be annoying. Plus they're just as drying as the matte liquid lips from CP. Touch ups are impossible, as adding new product just makes the old product flake up on the lips. Man Eater, 3-Way and Coquette apply streaky. Now I just mix a hint of these with a matte lippie to make custom shades, which is all these are good for.

This shade is very uneven, and also very dark. Its such a dark red that its almost black. The wand isn't a standard doe foot, either, its more of a plastic triangle, and I hate it. Voyager is very patchy, and its almost impossible to do more than one layer of this. It never fully dries down, either, and just stays painfully sticky forever. Dries out lips, and stains lip lines as well. I don't recommend Voyager.

Skip this palette. Seriously, its so sheer and patchy. Even the mattes are hard to use. This is the worst of the 4 original 10 pan palettes Wet N Wild released in 2018, by a mile. No matter what you do, none of these shades are going to show up how you want them to. You'd be better off trying to use the Megalast lipsticks as eyeshadow, as opposed to using this.

Shade selection is good, but these shadows suck. They're dry and hard to pick up, at least with my palette. Once you actually get color on your brush, it applies so sheer that its a waste of effort. I hit pan on the blue brown duochrome shade on first use, just trying to get it to show up. I like the mattes, but the shimmers in this palette are just garbage. Colourpop has dupes for all of the shimmers, so I'd just suggest you look there instead of wasting your money here.

I love the shade selection here, but this palette is not good. Almost every color is very sheer, and the formula is very dry and chalky, so nothing wants to stick to your eyelids anyway. Fallout is bad. The mattes are patchy. Don't waste your money, there are better palettes out there.

This is a Modern Renaissance "dupe", even though its missing a few shades from the ABH palette. The shades that are here though, are pretty spot on, at least in my opinion. Some shades are more powdery than others, and can have some kickback, but its nothing extreme. Everything is pretty okay, in terms of application. Blending is standard. The darker shades do need building up to get the same level of pigmentation as ModRen, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Wear time for me with Wet N Wild eye primer is 9 to 11 hours before noticeable creasing, but on its own it creases in as little as 4 hours. I think its great for the price, and the best of the original 4 Wet N Wild 10 pan palettes released in 2018.

This shade puts the glitter in "ultra-glitter". Seriously, I can only apply this by patting it on the lid with a silicone sponge, because any other way and glitter chunks just end up everywhere. All over my face, on my hands, on my socks somehow. Everywhere. I know a lot of the ultra-glitter super shock shadows have glitter fallout, but this one is absolutely terrible for it. Otherwise, its a pretty sheer shade, and the glitter is gold with a bit of a bright lime green flip, but its not special enough in my eyes to deal with the mess.

I love this palette, especially for creating more "sunset" themed looks. At first glance, the color story might appear a little odd, as its warm tones and some purples, with three seemingly random greens thrown in, but after playing around with this for a while, everything goes together very well. Wear time is 12+ hours with the Wet N Wild primer, but even without primer it lasts on for for 6 or 7 hours without creasing. Everything is pigmented, but not too pigmented, if that makes sense. The matte dark green can become a bit muddy if blended out too much, but I still highly recommend this if you're interested in a ColourPop palette.
