ColourPop Perfectly Wretched, Spindle, Cursed Jelly Much Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Perfectly Wretched

Colour Pop Perfectly Wretched Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a soft, champagne beige with warm undertones and a sparkling finish with larger shimmer and micro-glitter. It had buildable pigmentation from medium to mostly opaque, though with this type of formula, it often depends on how much gets picked up on one’s brush. I find that the wetter, more watery consistency makes it easy to over-apply when thinner, more even layers tend to look to give the best end result: smooth and even. Relative to other Jelly Much shades, it had a thicker, more whipped/mousse-like texture, which made it a little harder to pick up evenly with a brush. It blended out nicely with a fluffy, synthetic brush, and I didn’t have issues with fallout, even as it dried down. Once it set, this shade was locked on for 10 hours with minimal fallout.

Formula Overview

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.

Spindle

Colour Pop Spindle Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light-medium, silvery lilac base with flecks of silver, violet, and iridescent sparkle. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-sheer to semi-opaque, but it seemed like the shade had more shimmer and sparkle than base pigment, which made it particularly useful as a layering/top coat kind of product (if that’s what you’re after). The texture was watery, lightweight, and still easy enough to use once you’ve tried the formula a couple of times, as the product diffused and spread out nicely over my lid with even distribution of the shimmers and sparkles. Once it set, the eyeshadow lasted well for 10 hours with slight fallout over time.

Cursed

Colour Pop Cursed Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer–which was easier to achieve in practice, when I was actually applying it to my eyelid–with a smooth, watery texture that felt cool as it applied to my lid. The eyeshadow diffused and softened along the edges as it set, and while it definitely set quickly, I found I could still soften the edges further if necessary without lifting away the product. It stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.
