The Poppin’ Collection of In2It is a “comic pop art inspired range”, very evident in the collection’s bright, bold packaging.
The collection includes three eyeshadow palettes, two gel liner pencils, five liptint shades, and four pressed powders. In2It has been so kind to send me some of each.
Eye Poppin’ Eye Shadow in 01 Sassy Girl
The eyeshadow palette comes in a unique packaging: a box that you can pull out with the ribbon tab at the end.
The packaging is lightweight and the palette is small, ideal for traveling. Each eyeshadow pot is about as big as a 25 centavo coin, with 1g of product. It has a nice range of colors that you can use for day and night.
The palette contains six shades: three matte and three metallic.
The metallic shades seem to be more buttery and more pigmented than the matte shades. I used the matte shades as transition shade (taupe-ish shade), on my crease (earth shade) and outer crease (terracotta shade). They went on smoothly on my eyes for the look I created they blend easily. Just remember to tap off the excess for seamless blending. The lightest metallic shade (leftmost) is a really pretty champagne shade that I used in the center if my lid and as a highlighter. It w

Lip Poppin’ Tint in Bang Bang
In2It sent me two shades, but as a red lippie lover, I naturally chose Bang Bang (left) to try first.
I used the tint on both my lips and cheeks to test it’s versatility. On the lips it feels moisturizing and non-sticky. It also smells pleasant, which is important to me for lip products. The applicator is a sponge tip applicator, which I feel is appropriate for the product. One swipe on the lips delivers good pigment and coverage.
I underestimated it when I put it on my cheeks. I put an entire applicator-load on my cheeks haha. Good thing it has a blendable formula. I was able to get it to the sheerness I wanted before it dried and then I blotted the excess with a damp sponge.
As for longevity, the tint faded after I ate lunch, with no stain left on the lips. On the cheeks it stayed on all day.

Eye Poppin’ Eyeliner in Very Black
I’m already a little biased toward retractable liners. I love how I don’t have to sharpen them and you can customize how much of the tip you twist out so it doesn’t break.
The Eye Poppin’ Eyeliner comes in two shades, black and navy. The one in my package is the black one, and I’m really happy about it. It is a gel formula that dries to a smudge-proof, matte finish.
I love this formula because it’s so soft and pigmented: you get a bold line in a swipe. I usually, more accurately, always tightline my eyes. This pencil does not hurt my waterline and I don’t need to go back and forth on it because the color is already solid. It’s true to its smudge-proof claim; I wore this look all day and I didn’t get racoon eyes by the end of the day. This is a really good bet for a drugstore versatile gel liner pen.

Face Poppin’ Blur Pressed Powder in 03 Sand
The face powder comes in 4 shades, and Sand is the second to darkest. I appreciate the fact that they have a few shades to choose from, and that they are yellow-toned which means that they better suit Asian/Filipino skin tones.

Sand is too light for me to use as base, so I used it to set the areas under my eyes, nose, chin, and forehead: basically where you’d normally put your base highlight shade.
The package instructions advise that the product be applied with a dry face sponge (included) for best results.
Y’all. This powder is true to its blurring claims. I have large pores on my cheeks near my nose. Sis. After this putting on this powder: what pores?
Legit though, this powder is great for the blurring and mattifying effect. As for the coverage, it is light to medium: light when you use a fluffy brush, medium when you pat on with a dry sponge.
I particularly like the packaging. Aside from the fact that it is super pretty and bright yellow (easy to find in your purse), it’s high quality. Despite its low price point, the packaging feels pretty luxe. The plastic is heavy and the clasp is secure. One of the most badtrip makeup mishaps is when you bring your compact in your purse, then you find it a few hours later opened and cracked with the product everywhere. Super hassle. But this face powder’s packaging feels like it wouldn’t betray you like that.

Rating: 4.5/5 (the compact and pan are smaller than your usual)
Overall, I like this collection! You’ll have everything you need for a full face for less than PHP 1500. In2It is stepping up it’s packaging game as well with cute, fresh designs. I personally think the eyeshadow palette could have larger pans or a lower price point, but that’s it.
Here’s the look I created with the In2It Poppin’ Collection:
