ColourPop Lilac You a Lot Eyeshadow Palette is the newest in the brand’s monochromatic palette series. At a glance, it runs a bit cooler-toned than the It’s My Pleasure palette, but I see overlap, too, within that same glance (dupes are the last step in the review process, but I’ll be sure to add them when I get to the review!).

There are several other products (most in sets) to coordinate with this palette, but they included (mostly) recently reviewed products, so I only swatched the new palette, which you’ll find next up in this post.

Overdramatic

Colour Pop Overdramatic Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark copper with warm, rusty-red undertones and a matte finish. The blush had good color coverage in one layer when applied with a fingertip, and it had more buildable coverage from semi-sheer to mostly opaque when applied with a stippling brush, which was in line with the marketing.

The denser, more clay-like texture–velvety and smooth to the touch but never felt wet or really cream-like–responded better with fingertips than brushes, as I felt like I had to use a firmer hand to really swirl and drag my brush into the product for coverage. It does apply well with fingertips (which has always been my preferred method of application for the Super Shock Cheeks anyway!) as it goes on evenly, diffused with little effort, and smoothed out my skin texture slightly. I had no trouble applying in over bare skin or on top of foundation, though it took more layers to really build it up with a brush. It stayed on well for nine and a half hours before fading visibly.

Drop of a Hat

Colour Pop Drop of a Hat Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium, pinky-coral base with warm, gold and copper shimmer throughout. The texture was smooth, emollient without being too slippery, and easy to work with on bare skin as well as on top of base products.

The blush yielded opaque pigmentation when applied with fingertips and sheerer, buildable coverage when applied with a stippling brush, which was in line with the formula’s description. This shade applied evenly and blendedout effortlessly on my skin. It wore well for 10 hours with very little fading present. This shade is a repromote.

Attention Haul

Colour Pop Attention Haul Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a light peach with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single pass, which applied fairly evenly and didn’t sink into my lip lines noticeably (from a normal viewing distance but the close-up photo showed a bit). The gloss had a smooth, spreadable consistency that felt more like a cream-gel hybrid–dense and substantial but not tacky or heavy. This shade lasted nicely for three hours and felt moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.11 oz. – $54.55 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “hi-shine” with a “non-sticky” texture that “feels amazing” and includes five finishes “from 3-D pearl to sheer tinted colour.” They are designed to be a sheerer formula, so many shades are sheer with a smattering of shimmer or sparkle and then a few are more tinted with sheer to semi-sheer coverage but no shimmer. Each gloss has a short, brush-type applicator, which worked better than I expected and didn’t leave streaky results behind (in general). They had a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

The “Tinted” finish (“glass-like shine with tint of sheer colour and no shimmer”) was the least consistent–sometimes prone to unevenness and getting into lip lines, particularly with deeper/richer shades, whereas Pearlescent (“glass-like shine with subtle shimmer”) and Prismatic (“glass-like shine with floating multi dimensional pearl and glitters”) are sheer to translucent with the major difference being finer shimmer in the Pearlescent finish and larger, more glitter-like particles in the Prismatic finish. Both finishes tended to look plush and more smoothing on my lips. The Creme finish is a “medium-coverage gloss with a creamy finish that does not contain any pearls or glitter.” The Metallic is described as a “full-coverage gloss with a mix of pearl and metallic finishes.”

The wear time varied by shade but the sheerer ones tended to wear between two and three hours as the formula was, indeed, non-sticky and smooth, which made them lighter-weight and comfortable to wear but shorter wearing. A lot of the sheerer shades ran together, so I would recommend just picking up one or two rather than several as the differences are likely to be lost! Also, keep in mind that sheerer lip colors can look different from person to person due to much of the natural lip color coming through.

Crushin’

Colour Pop Crushin’ Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. The lipgloss had nearly opaque color payoff in one layer, which adhered evenly to my lips with just a bit of streaking on the outer edges of my lips. There was a smidgen of product that sank into my deeper lip lines, but it was subtle enough that I couldn’t see it in person (just in the close-up photos). It had a smooth, spreadable texture that was lightweight, substantial but not sticky, and comfortable to wear. It stayed on well for three and a half hours and felt hydrating over time.

Lesson Learned

Colour Pop Lesson Learned Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is is a deeper, muted peach with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation–more than the medium coverage promised, though there was still some translucency to it. The texture was lightweight, spreadable, smooth, and never felt tacky to me.

It applied unevenly along the edges, as the brush-type applicator is poor for getting around the edges without moving the product too much. There was also a small amount of gloss that accumulated in my deeper lip lines, though I didn’t feel like it was visible at a normal viewing distance. It wore well for three and a half hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.

Whatever

Colour Pop Whatever 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.36 oz.) is new release for fall, which features seven matte eyeshadows, one cream eyeshadow, three shimmer eyeshadows, and one glitter (which isn’t intended to be used on the eyes). The mattes performed well; I feel like ColourPop has tweaked their matte formula slightly, as they’ve been feeling a little more velvety and smoother overall in the last palettes I’ve tried from them.

The three traditional shimmer shades were good, though TTYN seemed to have a little too much slip but was quite workable. Tardy, the Super Shock Shadow, should work fine for anyone who likes more of a topper/layering shade, as its big downside was lack of coverage.  Overall, the eyeshadows performed consistently with their formulas; they were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing.

Colour Pop Tardy Pressed Powder Shadow

Tardy

Tardy is a light, yellow gold with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had more medium coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage, but it worked better as a wash of color all over the lid, as a high-shine brow bone highlight, or to brighten the inner tear duct area.

The consistency was creamy, smooth, and thin, so it felt more powder-like–as the formula does–when applied to the skin but initially felt more emollient, and you could press on the pan and see the product move. This shade stayed on well for 10 hours without creasing or having fallout on me.

Pink Slip

Pink Slip is a muted, light brown with warmer, yellower undertones paired with a matte finish. The texture felt soft, velvety, and smooth to the touch, which resulted in even, blendable application. It had opaque color payoff that lasted beautifully for eight hours before fading a bit.

Maybe Later

Maybe Later is a brighter pop of reddish-orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had good pigmentation but needed a half of a layer more on top for full coverage. The texture was soft, a little dusty in the pan, but it applied evenly, built up easily, and blended out without issue. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before starting to fade visibly.

Copy Cat

Copy Cat is a muted, peachy-orange with strong, warm golden undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer, which applied evenly and blended out easily along the edges. The texture was soft, velvety, and smooth to the touch with a touch of powderiness in the pan. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before I noticed signs of fading.

Pass It On

Pass It On is a muted, medium-dark orange with warm, brownish undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had nearly full color coverage, which applied evenly and smoothly on my skin, while the pigmentation built up to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was soft, smooth, and velvety without being powdery or prone to fallout. This shade lasted nicely for eight hours on me before there was visible fading.

Bad Guy

Bad Guy is a deep red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily along the edges without the rest of the application losing coverage or intensity.

The consistency felt soft, lightly dusty in the pan, but it wasn’t prone to fallout during application. I’d recommend using a lighter hand initially and adding more pressure as necessary, as the pigmentation stretched out a lot. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Duh

Duh is a pale gold glitter with a mix of particle sizes and depths; the smaller glitter particles seemed to be closer to white gold with some shift, while the larger hexagon-shaped glitter seemed to be more of a straightforward yellow gold. The glitter was suspended in a translucent base, so it was not fully opaque, which was on par with the formula.

The more emollient texture helped to keep most of the glitter together and ensured better-than-average adhesion to skin, but there can be light fallout depending on application method, blending, and time worn. As a cheek highlighter, there was half a dozen or so particles (per cheek) that traveled within an eight-hour wear time.

Please keep in mind that this product is not for use on the eye area; see this warning for more information. I, along with others, sound like broken records, but it would be great if ColourPop would keep their Pressed Glitters out of the eyeshadow palettes!

Not OK

Not OK is a rich, golden copper with strong, warm undertones and a lightly sparkled, metallic finish. The color coverage was opaque in a single layer, which applied smoothly and evenly on my lid. The consistency was lightly creamy, not too dense nor too loosely-pressed in the pan, so it was easy to work with, blended out easily, and didn’t have issues with fall out. It lasted well for eight hours before creasing slightly on me.

Ditchin’ U

Ditchin’ U is a bright, medium copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had a creamier, smooth texture that felt almost like a cream-to-powder formula based on the amount of slip present in the pan.

A single application of the eyeshadow yielded opaque color payoff in one go, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out fairly well along the edges. I’ve noticed that the more emollient (but powder!) formulas can show some translucency when they’re spread out along an area, which this one did a bit. I like using flat, synthetic brushes for application and subtle diffusing to minimize unnecessary movement. This shade stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours with slight fallout over time.

In Bold

In Bold is a medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had barley-there multi-colored shimmer over a more matte finish, so it functioned like a matte would in practice as it was hard to see any shimmering effect in person.

The texture was soft, thin without being too dry or difficult to blend out, and sat well on bare skin. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which lasted well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

TTYN

TTYN is a medium-dark copper with warm, rusty red undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture felt more emollient, almost too slippery, and it worked better with flat, synthetic brushes or fingertips to ensure even coverage. Fluffier brushes seemed to push the product out a little too much, which created unevenness. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours before creasing slightly on me.

Ms. Brightside

Ms. Brightside is a meidum-dark, reddish-burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage achieved in one layer, and the eyeshadow adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out with little effort along the edges. The texture was soft, a smidgen on the drier side, but it didn’t seem to impact the application or wear. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed some fading.

2 Cool 4 School

Colour Pop 2 Cool 4 School Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is medium-dark peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to mostly opaque when applied with a stippling brush and nearly opaque coverage when applied with fingertips. The blush had a smooth, more clay-like consistency that indented when pressed but moved more as one and felt more powder-like (drier in a way) than some of the past iterations of this formula (which tend to have more noticeable wetness initially).

One aspect I enjoy about the matte shades is that they tend to be almost smoothing and help to fill in pores like a pore-smoothing primer might. This shade applied evenly and blended out without too much effort, left my cheeks looking smoother, and didn’t lift up base products (but worked well on bare skin, which is where I tested for longevity). It stayed on nicely for nine and a half hours before fading on my cheeks.

Exes and Oh’s

Colour Pop Exes and Oh’s 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($16.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, Ulta-exclusive palette that features muted tones of red- and orange-toned neutrals in both shimmery and matte finish. For anyone who likes to wear these types of tones, it should be an easy palette to work with as the majority of the eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. A few of the mattes needed to be built up slightly for full coverage, while shimmers like Know Better just work best as layering shades or washes rather than standalone shades (there was no description from the brand that implied it was supposed to be sheer, though).

Know Better

Know Better is a pale pink with warmer undertones and flecks of silvery pink and gold sparkle. It had more of a transparent base, so it worked better as a layering shade patted on top of another eyeshadow for some shimmer or to add glitz to the inner tearduct. It could also be applied all-over the lid as a wash of sparkle. The texture was smooth, lightly emollient but blendable and had very little fallout when applied to my skin, though there was a bit of diffusion when I blended out the edge. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours with light fallout over time.

Stay Golden

Stay Golden is a brighter, muted red with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that needed half of a layer built on top for full pigmentation. The texture was soft, a little drier and dustier in the pan, but it applied evenly and blended out well, though I had slight fallout during application. It lasted well for eight and a half hours and left a faint stain after removal.

Hooky

Hooky is a medium brown with muted, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation that adhered evenly to bare skin in a single layer. The texture was soft, blendable, and had enough substance to work well without a primer as it didn’t sheer out too readily but still blended along the edge. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

20 Something

20 Something is a bright, peachy gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It was more loosely-pressed in the pan, so there was some fallout during application, but the overall consistency was creamier and more silicone-heavy, which helped most of the sparkles to adhere to my lid. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours with light fallout over time.

Issues #2

Issues #2 is a light-medium, yellowed peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was soft with moderate powderiness, so there was some excess product kicked up in the pan and a touch of fallout during application if I wasn’t careful. This shade lasted well for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Reckless

Reckless is a deep plum with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that needed less than half of a layer built on top for full coverage. The consistency was soft, velvety, and substantial, but it remained blendable along the edge with a touch of fallout during application. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours before I noticed some fading.

Rookie

Rookie is a bright, medium copper with stronger, warm undertones and flecks of multi-colored shimmer and sparkle throughout. It had a cream-like feel–very smooth and emollient–but it applied with excellent pigmentation in a single layer and all of that sparkle adhered well and didn’t give me trouble with fallout during application. This shade stayed on well for nine hours with a smidgen of fallout over time.

Fortunate

Fortunate is a light-medium, reddish-brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. There was barely-there shimmer throughout but not enough to meaningfully change the finish from visually matte on the eye. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, velvety consistency that was blendable and not prone to sheering out on my skin. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Realness

Realness is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, rusty undertones and a matte finish. It had a slightly powdery texture, so there was some excess product that was kicked up in the pan, but I didn’t notice any issues with fallout during application. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage that applied evenly and blended out easily along the edges. It wore well for eight and a half hours before showing signs of fading.

Easy Go

Easy Go is a medium-dark red with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, slightly firmer texture, though it wasn’t stiff to work with. The eyeshadow applied well to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Side Tracked

Side Tracked is a light-medium brown with warmer undertones and flecks of gold micro-sparkle over a matte finish. The texture was soft, somewhat powdery, but it seemed to be confined to the pan as I didn’t have issues with fallout or the product sheering out too readily on my skin. It had opaque pigmentation that lasted nicely for eight hours before starting to fade.

Smitten

Smitten is a medium red with subtle, warmer undertones and cooler pink shimmer that gave it a pearly sheen. It had good color coverage, but it had a more silicone-heavy–but very thin–feel that made it harder to apply without the product moving around, so the overall application was uneven on my skin. It wore decently for seven and a half hours before creasing on me.

Me v the World

Colour Pop Me v the World Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark brown with strong, warm orange-red undertones and a cream finish that was quite shiny. The texture was smooth, spreadable, and non-sticky with a thicker feel but never felt heavy or glue-like on my lips. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer, though it was designed to have more medium coverage.

I wish ColourPop would switch to a more traditional doe-foot applicator as the brush-style applicator makes it harder to spread the product along the edges cleanly. This shade had enough opacity to support a really even application of color, and there was only a touch that sank into my lip lines but not enough that it was noticeable at a normal viewing distance. It stayed on nicely for four hours and felt hydrating while worn.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.11 oz. – $54.55 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “hi-shine” with a “non-sticky” texture that “feels amazing” and includes five finishes “from 3-D pearl to sheer tinted colour.” They are designed to be a sheerer formula, so many shades are sheer with a smattering of shimmer or sparkle and then a few are more tinted with sheer to semi-sheer coverage but no shimmer. Each gloss has a short, brush-type applicator, which worked better than I expected and didn’t leave streaky results behind (in general). They had a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

The “Tinted” finish (“glass-like shine with tint of sheer colour and no shimmer”) was the least consistent–sometimes prone to unevenness and getting into lip lines, particularly with deeper/richer shades, whereas Pearlescent (“glass-like shine with subtle shimmer”) and Prismatic (“glass-like shine with floating multi dimensional pearl and glitters”) are sheer to translucent with the major difference being finer shimmer in the Pearlescent finish and larger, more glitter-like particles in the Prismatic finish. Both finishes tended to look plush and more smoothing on my lips. The Creme finish is a “medium-coverage gloss with a creamy finish that does not contain any pearls or glitter.” The Metallic is described as a “full-coverage gloss with a mix of pearl and metallic finishes.”

The wear time varied by shade but the sheerer ones tended to wear between two and three hours as the formula was, indeed, non-sticky and smooth, which made them lighter-weight and comfortable to wear but shorter wearing. A lot of the sheerer shades ran together, so I would recommend just picking up one or two rather than several as the differences are likely to be lost! Also, keep in mind that sheerer lip colors can look different from person to person due to much of the natural lip color coming through.

R We Done

Colour Pop R We Done Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a light, peachy brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied somewhat evenly, though it was hard to get a truly even lay down of product. There was a bit of color that settled into my lip lines, but I didn’t feel like I could tell in person (between the opacity and high-shine finish). It lasted well for four hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.

Spacemaker

Colour Pop Spacemaker Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a brighter, peachy coral with warm, orange undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had nearly opaque coverage in a single layer, though it was supposed to have more medium coverage. The applicator, despite being smaller, actually pulled out plenty of product so in order to get sheerer coverage, I’d recommend wiping a bit off prior to application.

The texture was smooth, spreadable, and felt more like a hybrid cream-gel formula as it wasn’t tacky but was denser and a little thicker (but not heavy). The product went on decently, especially for this type of finish and format, but there were faint streaks along the outer edges of my lips and some product settled into my lip lines. It wore well for three and a half hours and felt hydrating over time.

Each gloss has a short, brush-type applicator, which worked better than I expected and didn’t leave streaky results behind (in general). They had a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

The “Tinted” finish (“glass-like shine with tint of sheer colour and no shimmer”) was the least consistent–sometimes prone to unevenness and getting into lip lines, particularly with deeper/richer shades, whereas Pearlescent (“glass-like shine with subtle shimmer”) and Prismatic (“glass-like shine with floating multi dimensional pearl and glitters”) are sheer to translucent with the major difference being finer shimmer in the Pearlescent finish and larger, more glitter-like particles in the Prismatic finish. Both finishes tended to look plush and more smoothing on my lips. The Creme finish is a “medium-coverage gloss with a creamy finish that does not contain any pearls or glitter.” The Metallic is described as a “full-coverage gloss with a mix of pearl and metallic finishes.”

The wear time varied by shade but the sheerer ones tended to wear between two and three hours as the formula was, indeed, non-sticky and smooth, which made them lighter-weight and comfortable to wear but shorter wearing. A lot of the sheerer shades ran together, so I would recommend just picking up one or two rather than several as the differences are likely to be lost! Also, keep in mind that sheerer lip colors can look different from person to person due to much of the natural lip color coming through.

Underclassman

Colour Pop Underclassman Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium orange with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation when applied with a fingertip and more buildable coverage from semi-sheer to mostly opaque when applied with a stippling brush–as described.

The texture felt more clay-like, smooth and velvety to the touch, but it would clearly indent and could be pushed around like clay. The matte finish has less of an emollient or “wet” feel to it compared to more shimmery shades in the same formula, and as a result, I think they tend to apply best in quick motions, one cheek at a time, and as was the case with this shade, lift slightly if I’m not careful, but it does have a smoothing effect (my pores look less noticeable). It wore well for nine and a half hours before fading visibly on my skin.
