Formula Overview

$16.00/0.15 oz. – $106.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “bold, buildable pigment” that “swipes on easily” and has a “no-budge, no-smudge finish.” The liquid eyeshadow has a lightweight, fluid consistency that felt like a cross between water and gel, which ensured that the product glided over my skin, blended out evenly, but wasn’t prone to settling into fine lines. Most shades were pigmented with

Put Me First

ColourPop Put Me First Target Colour Stix Duo ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) includes a shimmery coral and shimmery brown twist-up cream eyeshadow. They were slightly better than the average Colour Stix but not amazing. As a FYI, the duos for Target contain larger-sized Colour Stixx (0.048 oz. each), so they have a more “jumbo” feel consistent with other twist-up eyeshadow pencils.

Recent Purchases/Rediscoveries: Profumum Arso & Patchouly fragrances

Weekend plans: My back is a bit tweaked, as it’s been in this “I’d like to go out on you” mode for the last couple of weeks. It was better this morning, then I volunteered, and when I got home, I had to lay down and ice for a bit. So… rest, I guess.

What’s your favorite board game? I’m not a huge board game player, but if I had to pick, maybe Scrabble!

Psst… since it’s Friday and we’re heading into the weekend, if you have some downtime, consider playing one of the games hubby and I have created! 🙂 You’ll find all of our games on Awordy, but here’s a breakdown of what we have so far:

  • Adoptle (guess the name of an adoptable pet in six guesses)
  • Concludle (figure out the subject within six clues)
  • Flipplant (figure out the plant using a mix of text- and image-based clues)
  • Mislettered (guess one letter at a time to figure out the phrase/quote)
  • Word Frenzy (find as many words from the letters available before the shark devours them)

ColourPop Muse Moment Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Muse Moment

ColourPop Muse Moment 9-Pan Shadow Palette (Plastic) ($12.00 for 0.28 oz.) includes a mix of warmer-toned neutrals–orange/brown–paired with three pops of green. The formulas for the eyeshadows in the palettes made for Target seemed slightly different than the brand’s average formula. The shimmers were more loosely-pressed and a little dry, which made them more prone to fallout during application and using a firmer, flatter brush and/or fingertip seemed to help them adhere more evenly. The matte shades seemed less powdery compared to the brand’s typical mattes and slightly thinner, though in a neutral way, as they seemed to apply evenly and blend out without issues overall.

Ingredients

Totally Valid

Totally Valid is a medium-dark peach with warmer, more orange-leaning undertones paired with a semi-matte finish (sparkles over top that didn’t really bind with the base).

  • Nearly opaque color coverage
  • Smooth, slightly thin and less powdery than typical for the brand
  • Blendable, had some fallout due to sparkles
  • Long-wearing (8 hours)
