Funko Pop! Makeup - Ursula Lip Gloss and Highlighter Palette

No comments :
It's rare nowadays that I see makeup come out and just think "now that's FUN!" Those were my exact thoughts when I saw that Funko was coming out with makeup. They're just so darn CUTE! Ursula is my fave, so of course I snagged a couple of the items with her on them.

The lipgloss actually has a pretty great formula. It is a shiny, pretty thick but not TOO sticky gloss with a hint of pink and lots of iridescent sparkle. It reminds me a lot of the MAC lipglass formula but not quite as sticky as that one. It also has that same vanilla cake batter type scent to it. It's pretty moisturizing, and because it's got that tackiness it lasts quite a while before having to re-apply.
The packaging is pretty big and not convenient, but I think that's what they are going for here - Pop figures all have giant heads so of course that had to be included in the design of these. The tube is pretty strong and doesn't feel cheaply made, and the wand is pretty average.
As you can see there isn't a TON of color, but it does give a shiny pink wash to your lips and adds a bit of sparkle. I like it a lot!

Now the highlighter palette surprised the crap out of me because I wasn't expecting it to be so big! I hadn't seen them in person or seen anyone physically hold one until I received mine in the mail. Looking at them on the Ulta site, they seemed like they were going to be the size of a blush compact and therefore  the pans wouldn't be very big. To my surprise, this came in a large box, and the compact itself is bigger than my hand!
First off, I love the color - it's like a metallic deep seagreen. The face is absolutely adorable as well, and the packaging is sturdy. It's a got a great mirror on the inside, and it opens up flat if you want it to.
There are 4 very subtle shades inside. I say that because it's not that the formula is terrible, they are just very light and not "blinding" like I usually prefer highlighters to be.
Vixen is a shimmery cream. 
Tough Choices is a shimmery rose gold.
Unfortunate Souls is a shimmery gold.
Body Language is a shimmery champagne.
As you can see here, they barely show up on my skin. Body Language is definitely my favorite, as it's the most "glowy" and packs the most punch. If you like very subtle highlighters and are pretty pale, then this will definitely be a good choice for you.

All in all I think the packaging here is obviously what drew me in. If you love the characters then you'll most likely love having this stuff on your vanity. If you're in it for the makeup alone, it's not as worth it.
