ColourPop Supershock Highlighter in Flexitarian, $8.
Looks sensational when you first apply it, smooth, beaming, lovely undertone. Unique formula, applies like a cream but dries to a powder finish. Can look a little chunky. Best applied with fingers. Very short wear time, doesn’t last more than two hours. Turns into a glittery mess as it fades.
VERDICT: Hit. (I shouldn’t like it, too many issues. But I do! The heart wants what it wants.)
Lippie Stix in Birdy, $5.50.
Gorgeous creamy texture that is flattering even on dry lips. Opaque, easy to wear colour in a pretty pale pinky peach shade. Want. Every. Colour. Love the skinny packaging too.
ColourPop No Filter Concealer in Fair 5, $6.
Great colour, leans slightly yellow, has fantastic brightening effect on the under eyes. Light to medium coverage. Very drying. Settles into fine lines and exaggerates texture. If you are in your teens or 20s and have normal to oily skin, go for it. If not, avoid.

ColourPop Supernova Shadow in Walk Of Fame, $7.
Colour is wishy washy. Layering it creates a chunky, flaky mess. Works OK as an eyeshadow base. Curious about other shades, suspect they might be better.
