(I didn’t realize it was swatched too light on my hand)

  Play by Play


High Strung


Running Late


Sideline, Play by Play, and High Strung are metallic and Running Late is matte. Compared to their Super Shock Shadows, the pressed powder is truer to color even though they are bold. The formula of the metallics and matte were not powdery, had minimal fallout, and excellent on the pigmentation. I love wearing metallic shadows. Most metallic shadows I’ve used get dry, are hard to blend out, and I often end up spreading them all over. CP’s metallics did not do any of that. Running Late also did a very good job for a matte shadow. On the brush, I only need to swipe them twice for added intensity.  The shadows are very close to a dupe for the ABH Singles.

The pressed shadows are sold individually. There are a few premade palettes for ($18).

Colourpop came out with limited edition pearlized duo chrome highlighters ($8). Honeymoon is one of the four shades. Honeymoon reminds me of the ABH Moon Child Glow Kit. I started getting more into duochrome makeup, but the highlighter is a hit/miss for me. I do love Lunch Money and hit pan, and Honeymoon is my second highlighter. The formula feels very light and moosey compared to their original highlighters. With its pearlized finished, Honeymoon has a silvery white base with tons of blue/lavender shifts which served as a problem for me. The highlighter on me looked like a white glittery strip. However, I started playing around with the Honeymoon and tried it as an eyeshadow and it worked great. I’m still doubting this highlighter.

The pearlized highlighters are still available.
