Under the Sea
is an excellent, minty green with a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that tended to sheer out as it seemed to have too much slip, making it look uneven.
I had the best luck applying it with a fluffier brush for a sheerer layer ofwell. It lasted decently for nine before fading a bit.

is a cream-based formula tn many shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip (they have a “wetter” feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented. shade I’ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later).
From the feedback I’ve seen from readers, many love them, but some don’t like them. They aren’t a traditional, 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 drier and vary from medium to opaque in coverage, though they’re often buildable. Though some are lovely to work with, they can be a little hard to diffuse the edges of.
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 as the otherin the formula, but often, they are more very 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).
