I really do not like when brands throw sparkle into an otherwise matte eyeshadow. I really find it pointless as the sparkles do not bind with the base color, so there’s unnecessary fallout…
it’s like it’s there just to be pretty in the pan and that’s a pass for me. I think an eyeshadow should perform decently without primer, since primer will just enhance anyway, why not get something that’s pretty good and can be A+++++ over primer?!

Best ColourPop Pressed Powder Highlighters

Colour Pop Pressed Powder Highlighter  

ColourPop Pressed Powder Highlighters ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is supposed to have a “high-shine” finish with “high colour intensity.” In general, ColourPop’s pressed highlighter powders have a smooth, moderately dense texture that was soft enough to be picked up easily by a brush but not kick up any powder in the pan. The formula was semi-opaque to opaque but easily sheered out for less shine and coverage if desired. There were a few shades within the range that emphasized my skin’s natural texture slightly but most did not. The wear ranged from seven and a half hours to nine hours.

MAC Glam AF Eyeshadow Quad

Glam AF

MAC Glam AF Eyeshadow Quad ($32.00 for 0.19 oz.) contains three matte eyeshadows and one shimmery eyeshadow, and they were all in the neutral family of colors. The shimmery shade was a miss–too dry and too loose to work well on its own (and regular primer wouldn’t be enough–it needed a tacky base or to be used with a dampened brush). Three of the four shades are part of the permanent range.
