ColourPop Garden Variety Jelly Much Shadows Reviews & Swatches


Sage Bundle

Colour Pop Sage Bundle Jelly Much Shadow has a light, pinky-beige base with blue-to-teal shifting sparkle and pearl. It had semi-sheer color coverage in a single layer, so it worked better as a layering shade/highlighter than a standalone eyeshadow–definitely not the “intense” coverage marketed. It’s a shame that so many brands seem to be afraid to specify that certain products are sheer!

The texture was watery, cool-to-the-touch, and thin with a lightweight feel and fast dry-down on my skin. It applied best with a fluffy, synthetic brush for smaller areas and a fingertip for all-over-the-lid application. I found a flat, synthetic brush was prone to pushing the sparkles around, which resulted in an uneven application. It wore nicely for 10 hours with a touch of fallout over time.


Colour Pop Saguaro Jelly Much Shadow is a rich, medium-dark coral base (that leaned slightly pink) with peachy-gold sparkle and micro-sparkle throughout. It had an intense, bright and sparkling finish that wasn’t as even in thickness when applied to my lid, though from afar, I don’t think it was noticeable.

It had good color payoff in a single layer, which was a nice surprise as recent launches in this formula have been sheerer (when they’re intended to be pigmented). The consistency felt watery and cooler to the touch, and the product felt lightweight and thin when applied to my skin. It dried down quickly and lasted for 10 hours with just a touch of fallout.

She Grown

Colour Pop She Grown Jelly Much Shadow has a deeper, strawberry pink base with moderate warm undertones paired with flecks of gold and pink sparkle. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and set to a transfer- and crease-resistant finish.

It had a cooler, watery consistency that felt wet as it went onto my skin, but it quickly dried down and set with just enough time to work with it. I’d recommend applying it with a flat, synthetic brush and pressing or patting the color onto the skin or using a fingertip for a sheerer application of product. This shade lasted well for 10 hours with a smidgen of fallout over time.

Desert Days

Colour Pop Desert Days Jelly Much Shadow is a medium-dark pink base that leaned slightly warmer paired with flecks of gold, pink, and violet pearl and larger micro-sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which could be built up if a second layer was applied over the first after it had dried down.

The texture was watery and very cool to the touch, but it was jelly-like in the pot itself. The product worked best applied with a fingertip or a flat, firm synthetic brush and patted/pressed into place rather than swept on. I’d recommend using a fluffy, synthetic brush to diffuse the edges as the product dries down to soften the edge. It stayed on well for 10 hours with only a touch of fallout over time.
