Hello there! Colourpop recently released eyeshadows with a new formula, called the Jelly Much shadows. There are 8 shades that retail for $8 each.
Its unique water-based formula saturates the pigment for immediate intense color application. Super longwearing, it won’t crease, fade, or transfer; dries down to a powder finish with zero fall out.
I only bought one shade when they were released because I just wanted to try them. Thought I wouldn’t like this formula (I’m more of a powder shadow kind of girl) but to my surprise I love it. The shade I have is Bungalow, described as a “metallic vibrant peacock teal”. When I first used it, my sister said I had little mermaid eyelids (LOL).
For application, I first tried it with my fingers but switched to a brush for a more precise application (website says to use a brush). The formula has a weird feel to it but as stated on Colourpop’s website, it gives intense pigmentation and doesn’t crease or fade. I’ve had it on my lids and my lower lash line as a pop of color. It stayed put all day until I removed my makeup at night. I have hooded eyes and the shadow didn’t transfer anywhere. *Remember to leave the plastic lid on and screw shut tightly so it doesn’t get all dry.* There’s no need to say that I will be buying other shades because they’re beautiful and the formula is amazing.

Another Colourpop product I’ve been loving is the Lux Lipstick, specifically the ones from Kathleen Lights Zodiac Collection. The retail for $7 each. I have both shades in the collection and I must say that I’m impressed with the formula. This are the first Lux Lipstick I try and I’m glad I did. The formula is creamy, but it won’t bleed out of the outer edge. The shade What’s your sign? fades beautifully but Scorpio Moon leaves a line on the outer edges of my lips. Also, if I put Scorpio Moon on and remove it, it leaves my lips stained (I confess it looks pretty). Overall, the shades are beautiful, the formula is amazing, and I NEED to buy more lipsticks in this formula.
