ColourPop Strawberry Jam & Strawberry JellyJelly Much Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Colour Pop Strawberry Jam Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bright pop of orange with a warm, reddish undertone and lighter, warm golden peach shimmer and larger sparkle. It was richly pigmented with a lightweight, thin texture that felt watery, yet almost mousse-like, and a little went a long way. The eyeshadow applied evenly to bare skin, and it applied best with fingertips (for more of a wash of product) or a flat, synthetic brush (for more intense coverage). It stayed on nicely for 10 hours without fading or creasing, though there was a smidgen of fallout over time.

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 Strawberry Jelly Jelly Much Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bright, red-coral with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of gold and pink micro-sparkle over a satin-like finish. It had good pigmentation, though I struggled to get really even, opaque coverage when I wore it on my inner lid (which has more fine lines/texture). The consistency was lightweight, watery, and thin–it felt wet and cool to the touch but had an airier, mousse-like texture. The edges blended out with ease, and the color lasted for over 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.
