Mojo Jojo

ColourPop Mojo Jojo Matte Shadow Stix ($6.00 for 0.019 oz.) is a medium-dark coral-red with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of larger gold and pink sparkle. It had sheerer coverage, but it was more buildable and easier to work with than most of the shades in the range.

The texture was smooth with good glide, which made it comfortable to work with on the lash line or on the lid. It had light creasing apparent after seven hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.019 oz. – $315.79 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be “ultra pigmented” in “one swipe” while being “long wearing” and “water-resistant.” There are two finishes: matte and metallic, and the initial release included two shades from each finish, so the overview is based on those four shades, which is not a ton of shades to go off of!

One of the four pencils was drier, stiffer, and was prone to the point snapping off during application. The other three were creamier with the metallic shades being more emollient than the remaining matte shade. The pigmentation varied from shade to shade; it ranged from medium to opaque with some being more buildable than others.

The performance was more consistent with three of the four shades applying comfortably with somewhat even initial layers. They were blendable for five to 10 seconds before they dried down to more budge-proof finish. They didn’t feel heavy or clingy on my lids, and while they were creamy, they did not feel slippery as they were drying down so they did not settle into fine lines or creases during the dry down.

I was able to apply them directly from the pencil to my eye area, but I found a brush gave me a more even application and helped me blend out the product without losing some of the coverage compared to application with a fingertip. The shades lasted between six and eight hours before creasing on me.

HIM

ColourPop HIM Matte Shadow Stix ($6.00 for 0.019 oz.) is a light, lime green with warm undertones and flecks of lighter and darker green sparkle. It had sheer color payoff, which was only buildable to semi-sheer pigmentation, but it was uneven in its application and difficult to blend out without it looking more uneven.

The texture was fairly smooth but seemed to have too much glide, which may have been the issue. This shade stayed on decently for six hours before creasing.

Princess Morbucks

ColourPop Princess Morbucks Matte Shadow Stix ($6.00 for 0.019 oz.) is a light-medium blue with moderate, cool undertones and a sparkling, lightly metallic finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque pigmentation by layering it up, though it was hard to apply and keep it even as the texture seemed overly waxy/emollient.

This formula is difficult to use as an all-over shade if one wants real precision and stellar application; quickly applied and sheered out, from afar it is more of a sparkling wash that may be sufficient for some. It lasted for six hours on me before creasing and had light fallout.
