The Air Brush Rose Gold

Wayne Goss Rose Gold The Air-Brush ($40.00) is a smaller, flatter brush with a rounded, softly tapered edge. It looks a lot like a flattened blush brush in terms of shape, though it is a less dense brush that has an airy feel as it skates across the skin. The brush head is made out of blue squirrel hair. It’s 22mm in width, 35mm in length, and 14mm in thickness with a total length of 7.75 inches / 17 centimeters. I found it completely comparable in quality and purpose to the original Air-Brush (which is what was expected!).

I’ve enjoyed the brush for highlighting, powdering underneath the eyes, and applying cheek color. It can work for contouring, but I still find I prefer a more traditional, angled brush for contouring. The brush has a silky-smooth feel as it is worked across the skin, and there was never a moment, regardless of angle, motion, or technique, where I could feel an individual hair. I’ve had good luck with Wayne Goss brushes holding up well after many washes over the years, including the two original Air-Brushes I have already. You can check out my original review for a slightly more in-depth review on the brush.

Here’s the thing, though… other than the handle color, the brush head performed the same for me, and the original version (glossy black) is $5 cheaper, and the original is still available to purchase.

Pourpre Edgy (326)

Givenchy Pourpre Edgy (326) Le Rouge ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep red with cool, pink undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied without tugging on the lips, but the color could have been a smidgen more even overall. The translucency to the coverage seemed to make any imperfections in the finish/application more noticeable, unfortunately. The lipstick felt smooth and velvety going on with moderate slip, and for all that slip, it did not accentuate my lip lines and seemed to smooth them out a bit (not as much as other shades in the Le Rouge lineup, though). It wore well for five hours and was moisturizing.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.12 oz. - $300.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "intense color" with a "semimatte finish." Most shades are opaque with a few falling short of full coverage that apply evenly and last between four and six hours. The fomrula is lightly creamy to moderately creamy with some slip that is comfortable to wear and typically moisturizing over time. It has a floral scent but no discernible taste.

Colour Pop Bouncy Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, red undertones and pink and olive pearl. It had a smooth, moderately emollient consistency so it felt wet to the touch and was a little too slippery on the lid, so it did not have fully opaque coverage in one layer and took a little more work to diffuse and blend out. It wore well for 10 hours on me without fading or creasing.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.07 oz. - $71.43 Per Ounce

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow is a cream-based formula that comes in a multitude of shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip to them (they have a “wetter” feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. Almost every shade I’ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later). The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented.

From feedback I’ve seen from readers, many love them but some don’t like them at all. They aren’t a traditional cream eyeshadow, as they are denser (more sponge-like), and they apply best with flat, firm, synthetic brushes (I like the MAC 242 and 249) for me. The brand recommends using fingers for the most pigmented application, but I’ve only felt that fingers were necessary on a few shades (usually the super glittery ones).

The more matte shades can be on the drier side and vary from medium to opaque in coverage, though they're often buildable.  They can be a little hard to diffuse the edges of, though some are lovely to work with.

The more glittery shades have been the weakest to me, as they can be sheerer or harder to apply.  Sometimes, they are more pigmented and work like the other finishes in the formula, but often, they are sheerer and only function well patted on top of more pigmented eyeshadows to add glitter.  They do, however, tend to have little fallout over time with the occasional shade having a more moderate amount of fallout (but still less fallout than most powder eyeshadows with glitter).

All I See is Magic

Colour Pop All I See is Magic 15-Pan Shadow Palette ($20.00 for 0.56 oz.) includes 15 shades in varying hues and finishes, though it’s still what I’d consider to be a more neutral palette. There are two shades that act like pops of color–Tinsel Town and Wishful Thinking–so it’ll work for someone who likes their warmer-toned neutrals and has wanted to pair them with some more metallic finishes. It’s another solid palette from ColourPop, though, as most of the eyeshadows were quite pigmented, easy to apply, and long-wearing.

Givenchy Framboise Couture (323) Le Rouge ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a cream finish. The color coverage was opaque in a single layer and applied evenly and smoothly across the lips without dragging or tugging during application. It had a velvety texture that wasn’t too thick, too thin, or too slippery. The color adhered well to the lips and wore nicely for almost six hours.

Fenty Beauty Uncensored Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color ($24.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium-dark red with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single–there was more product on the applicator than necessary for full coverage.

Per the brand, it’s supposed to offer “12-hour hold” that feels “weightless” and “one stroke” pigmentation. The consistency was smooth, thin but not watery, and easy to spread across the lips, though I felt like the applicator had a tendency to over-apply product so I’d try to wipe some off against the opening or use a separate lip brush to apply. The wand itself was a cinch to use on the lips, and it seemed to hug the natural contours of my lips and glide evenly across them. It dried down for the most part within a few minutes, but it wasn’t completely transfer-proof–the brand didn’t make the claim that it was, and it actually described the finish as a “soft matte” (usually code for not fully matte). The color stayed on well for nine hours and seemed to be non-drying.
