Might as Shell

ColourPop Might as Shell 4-Pan Cheek Palette ($18.00 for 0.3 oz.) includes four, lighter-leaning highlighters in a cream-to-powder formula that applied well with fingertips or a brush. The formula performed comparably with past Super Shock Cheek shades I’ve tried, though I’d say a few were slightly more emollient than the very best Super Shock Cheek shades I’ve tried.

Ingredients

Sunlit

Sunlit is a darker gold with warm undertones and a smooth, lightly metallic sheen.

  • Medium coverage with brush, semi-opaque coverage with fingertip
  • Slightly overly emollient to touch
  • Dried down to powder-like application
  • Blendable, did not lift base products
  • Longer-wearing (9-10 hours is typical)

  • Sol Body Star Light (LE, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar).
  • Chanel Plisse Lumiere de Chanel (LE, $80.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar).
  • Charlotte Tilbury Original (P, $38.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).
  • Natasha Denona Glam Light (Star Glow) (PiP, ) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar).
  • Tom Ford Beauty Scintillate (Illuminate) (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar).
  • Becca Champagne Pop (P, $41.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar).
  • Anastasia Moonstone (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar).
  • ColourPop Flip Flops (LE, $10.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar).

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.15 oz. – $66.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “buildable” coverage and can be applied with fingertips (which will yield “higher coverage”) or a brush (for sheerer coverage). It’s a cream-based product that has a subtle, “wet” feel to it but never has the thickness of a true cream-based blush.

It goes on with the smoothness of a cream formulation but diffuses and blends (without lifting up one’s base) more like a powder product. The product sets to a powder finish, so the product won’t slide around during the day.

On me, the wear tends to be between eight and 10 hours. Most shades have medium, buildable pigmentation with some being semi-opaque to opaque on occasion. They are typically blendable, easy to use, and long-wearing.
