Colour Pop Aura Voir Luster Dust Loose Highlighter ($7.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium, coppery orange with warm undertones and fine, gold and copper pearl. It had medium, buildable coverage, though the shine itself was high-shine to truly blinding. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and easy to blend out on the skin. Despite the high-shine finish, it seemed to create the illusion of smoother skin rather than accentuating the texture of my natural skin.

Though the powder was blendable, I noticed if I picked up product with my brush without tapping away excess or swirling the brush lightly inside the cap of the product, the initial laydown of product was a bit splotchy–it blended right out–but if I swirled first, it applied evenly and barely needed any blending. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.11 oz. - $63.64 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a "finely-milled, soft powder" that "packs a blinding punch" where "a little goes a long way." These can be incredibly shiny and metallic on the skin, and the coverage seemed to be all in the application. They actually seemed to be more pigmented when I applied them to my cheekbones using a tapered highlighter than when I used smaller brushes (for eyes) on my forearm. The powders were finely-milled with some base color and a lot of shimmer/pearl. I found the best way to apply these was to pick up product onto a brush and then swirl my brush on the interior of the cap, which helped to disperse the powder more evenly through my brush. This resulted in more even application to my cheeks that required less buffing and blending than if I skipped the swirling step. They lasted around eight hours on me.

Silent Treatment

Wet ‘n’ Wild Silent Treatment Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad ($2.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, permanent set of neutral shades–mauve, peach, deep taupe, light taupe–housed in a slim, plastic palette. They were not the worst eyeshadows I’ve used, but there was a dryness present through the formula that made them harder to use without a good primer underneath.

Wet ‘n’ Wild reformulated their eyeshadow trios and palettes with the trios expanding to quads and some shades getting changed. I did not keep most of the previously-released trios and palettes from the brand as mine, but when I compared 2018’s formula to the prior one (and mine are likely five or more years old), the previous formula was far better for their shimmers–slightly more slip, creamier in feel, and typically more pigmented and true-to-color on the lid. I think the mattes, overall, are improved as they are more blendable and pigmented on the lid.

Tulip to Quit

Colour Pop Tulip to Quit Pressed Powder Blush ($8.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium, burnt orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which did not build up to full coverage as the texture was too dry and prone to sheering out to manage any buildability. The consistency seemed to lack binders, so there was a ton of product that kicked up in the pan when I tried to use it, even with a soft touch. It blended out decently but looked somewhat uneven, despite trying to my best to diffuse the coverage. It lasted for seven hours on me.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.21 oz. - $38.10 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.
