ColourPop Butterfly Pressed Shadows Reviews & Swatches (Part 1 of 2)

ColourPop Friendly Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a light-medium lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish.  It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin and blended out easily without sheering out too readily.  The texture was soft, lightly powdery in the pan, so I'd recommend using a lighter hand to avoid too much product on one's brush.  It wore nicely for eight hours on me before fading noticeably. ColourPop Nectar Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a light pink with warmer undertones and iridescent, bluish shimmer Continue Reading…

Tom Ford Golden Mink Eye Color Quad Review & Swatches

Golden Mink Tom Ford Beauty Golden Mink Eye Color Quad ($75.00 for 0.35 oz.) has returned for the holidays in new, gold-hued packaging and with a softer price point–a mere $75 instead of the typical $88. While I don’t have the specially-packaged version, this is a newly-received palette, so it should be comparable to what is currently being sold on the market (apparently, I did not review it years ago!). For those who are typically fan of the brand’s usual eyeshadow formula–not the more gel-powder version–this is in line with that. For those who prefer the intensity and depth of the gel-powder formula, this may be a little dustier, plus it contains two of the more emollient, sparkling shades (that...

ColourPop Good as Gold Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Good as Gold Colour Pop Good as Gold 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, gold-themed palette featuring four matte shades, two Pressed Glitters, and the remaining shades were shimmers. I believe that 24K is a Super Shock Shadow (cream-to-powder formula) based on performance and feel. Aside from the glitters, the eyeshadows performed fairly well; they were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing with two mattes having a slightly thinner/firmer press but applied without difficulty. One shimmer, Au Team, had a very different texture than we’ve seen from ColourPop shimmers; it was quite heavy, thick, and only worked well with fingertips. 2 3 Good as Gold Good as Gold B+ Limited Edition Where to Buy Affiliate Links...

Natasha Denona Palette 13 Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Palette 13 Natasha Denona Palette 13 Eyeshadow Palette 5 ($48.00 for 0.4 oz.) is a cohesive set of shades featuring three mattes and two shimmers. It’s a more standalone palette as there was a good mix of depth and finish, though as a smaller palette, it will be most versatile as a complementary palette. The performance was somewhat better than the older versions I have, but they weren’t quite as improved as I have seen some of the shades come over time. I don’t know if this is the most current formulation available, but it is one of the newer ones (somewhere between all the iterations), as the back of the palette has a 12M timer on it (compared to...

ColourPop x NKLA Pawsitively Purrfect Super Shock Shadow Review & Swatches

Colour Pop Pawsitively Purrfect Super Shock Shadow ($7.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium copper with warm, brown undertones and flecks of pink and gold micro-sparkle throughout. The texture was lightly emollient without being too wet, so it was easy to pick up with fingertips or a flat, synthetic brush for application but still was quick to turn more powder-like once it came into contact with my skin. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was best as an accent, lid shade, or inner tearduct highlighter, as it didn't build up to full coverage for me. The amount of shimmer and sparkle Continue Reading…
