ColourPop Close to You, Photosynth Sis, Doves n’ Roses Jelly Much Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Colour Pop Close to You Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a soft pink with warm undertones and gold and silver glitter. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer (just make sure to let the first layer dry down). The texture was watery, wet in feel and cooling as it went onto my skin, but it applied fairly evenly and wasn’t too difficult to diffuse along the edges. If you’re someone who wants really intense, full-on coverage out of their eyeshadow, skip, but if you’re someone who likes glitter and something that can layer or be applied to brighten, this might work well. It lasted well for nine and a half hours before there was a bit of fallout.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.23 oz. – $34.78 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “high impact” in a “single swipe” that’s longwearing, “won’t crease, fade or transfer” and “dries down to a powder finish with zero fall out.” These are water-based, so they feel wet and cooling when initially applied, but the reality is that so little product is needed to get coverage on the lid that I didn’t feel it was watery or thin when I actually patted it onto my lid with a brush.

I would recommend using less than you think you’ll need, and while fingertips can be used to apply, I liked the control of flat, synthetic brushes gave me as fingertips (for me!) applied far more product than needed. If you over-apply, it can feel wet and take longer to dry down, and it ends up taking too long and can pull into creases/fine lines on the lid. If I used about what I needed (there was some wiggle room), it dried down quickly and set to a transfer-resistant/crease-resistant finish. It was harder to blend out once dry, though, and if I wasn’t careful, more vigorous blending could disturb and cause the eyeshadow to flake slightly.

They are easier to use than they look, and I think they’re quite good overall, though a couple of shades were less stellar. They have a high-shine finish, though I think the more metallic powder and cream eyeshadows give a similar look that I wasn’t convinced that the finish on these was above and beyond products that might be easier to use/more user-friendly. I’m not sure that the pot was the best way to go, as the product dries out extremely quickly; to the point where I would advise closing the product after you’ve taken product out of it, don’t let it sit open while you’re applying the rest of your makeup–you will see and feel parts of it dry out.

I found the packaging to be rather messy, and I have bits of product along the edge of the jar, along the rim, and it’s fiddly to move the stopper from the opening to the lid and back again. I wonder if a squeeze tube might be less messy and make it easier to control the amount of product picked up while also preventing the product from drying out too readily.

Colour Pop Photosynth Sis Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a deep gold with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich pigmentation that adhered well to bare skin with a smooth, even application; a little went a very long way–even the barest dab of product was more than I needed and I’m comfortable working with this formula in general. The consistency was water-based and very much felt that way–wet and cool to the touch–but it was quick to dry down without gathering in my creases as it did so. The color wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

Colour Pop Doves n’ Roses Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a deep pink with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of warm, gold sparkle and micro-glitter. The texture felt wet to the touch, and it definitely felt like a water-heavy formula, but it applied with a surprisingly opaque-level of color payoff in one layer. I liked using a flat, synthetic brush to apply the product, and then I used a fluffy brush to soften the edges. The color appeared a bit lighter once on my skin–more reflective, I suppose–while the deeper pink base wasn’t as noticeable. It stayed on well for 10 hours and had just a touch of fallout after that point in time.
