ColourPop Hard to Empress is a moderately warm-toned, very dark copper with a sparkle finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $7.00 and contains 0.17 oz.
ColourPop Hard to Empress Supernova Shadow ($6.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a deep copper with warm, red undertones and flecks of copper sparkle. It had good pigmentation in a single stroke with a watery, thin base that could spread across a larger area without clumping up or becoming terribly patchy. What I did find was that as it dried down, it emphasized the texture of my skin and made it look rougher, though I think in person it's not as obvious as in still photos since the light would reflect more in person. It dried down fast enough not to gather in my creases. It lasted for eight hours fairly well, but I did have more noticeable wear near my inner tearduct area.
