ColourPop All That 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new palette for Valentine’s Day that features an assortment of mattes and shimmers, along with one Pressed Glitter and one Pressed Pigment (those latter two being not intended for use on the eye area). The mattes went on a little darker than they appeared in the palette, which I think made it a more versatile color story (both on its own but for more skin tones). I was somewhat disappointed in the shimmers, as I didn’t feel like they were up to the brand’s typical quality.
Colour Pop Uncuffed Pressed Powder Shadow
Uncuffed is a very pale pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had rich color coverage that applied well to bare skin with minimal powderiness and a smidgen of fallout if I wasn’t careful with placement. I was surprised at how opaque it was, though, without a primer and without having to really pack it on.
The texture was smooth, velvety, and almost like a cream-powder as it had to be really buffed onto my skin to be seamless. There was definitely something different about the formula used in this shade compared to others in the palette; just denser, thicker (but not in a bad way), and it didn’t look as dry/powdery as one might expect from this lighter kind of color. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.
Colour Pop BB Girl Pressed Powder Shadow
BB Girl is a light-medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation in a single layer paired with a smoother, creamier, and more substantial type of texture.
Often, lighter matte hues like this can be quite powdery, but the formula had a velvety quality to it that I find present in richer mattes (in terms of texture, not color) that do better at adhering without dropping a lot of fallout or sheering out too readily–all true here. It appeared a full shade darker applied than swatched, too. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Colour Pop Come Thru Pressed Powder Shadow
Come Thru is a deeper, rosy beige with moderate, warm undertones with a mostly matte finish, though there was noticeable micro-sparkle that ran through it. There were some sparkles that translated to my skin when I applied this shade, but they don’t do a great job staying in place or where one might want them, so not blending is really the key to maintaining a precise application (which is not ideal).
The texture was lightly powdery but smooth and blendable. It had opaque coverage that lasted well for eight hours but had light fallout over time from the sparkle.
Colour Pop Risque Pressed Powder Shadow
Risque is a light-medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was more loosely-pressed and prone to sheering out somewhat along with having light fallout during application. It applied better with a dampened brush or fingertip, which minimized the fallout and improved the color payoff from medium to opaque. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Colour Pop Cha Cha Pressed Powder Shadow
Cha Cha is a dusty, medium-dark coral with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that was easily built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top. The texture was smooth, velvety, and a touch powdery in the pan but applied well and blended out with ease. It stayed on well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
Colour Pop Fishnets Pressed Powder Shadow
Fishnets is a muted, light-medium copper with moderate, warm undertones paired with pink and gold shimmer. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single pass, which built up to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was soft, slightly drier so there was risk of fallout, but it applied evenly and blended out without issue. This shade lasted nicely for eight hours before I noticed fading.
Colour Pop Uncensored Pressed Glitter
Uncensored is a darker, warm red glitter mix with both small and more medium-sized particles suspended in a clear base. It had semi-opaque coverage with good spreadability and adhesion. There was some migration over an eight-hour period (tested on cheeks) but most of it stayed in place.
This is a Pressed Glitter that contains plastic (PET) glitter, and it came with the warning that it was not intended for use around the eye area.
Colour Pop Wink Wink Pressed Powder Shadow
Wink Wink is a muted, darker red with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges. The texture was slightly drier to the touch and on the thinner side, but it picked up well with a brush. It showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.
Colour Pop Silhouette Pressed Powder Shadow
Silhouette is a deep copper with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was more firmly-pressed into the pan and seemed a little thinner, so I had to use a heavier handed approach to pick up product evenly. It yielded good pigmentation in a single layer that applied well to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. The color stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Colour Pop Infatuation Pressed Powder Shadow
Infatuation is a medium-dark copper with warm, red undertones and pink and gold sparkle over a more metallic finish. The texture was incredibly dense, thick, and felt like a 60-40 cream-powder hybrid. It did not apply well with a brush at all; it had to be applied with a fingertip to really get a smooth, even application of color.
It was thicker, too, and it emphasized my lid texture/lines so I had to be careful to really smooth it out. I noticed that after a few hours of wear, there was some separation along my lid texture/lines that gave it a very slightly patchy effect, though it didn’t get worse after that point.
Colour Pop Please Me Pressed Powder Pigment
Please Me is a reddened burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out quite nicely despite its intense hue. The texture was lightly powdery, slightly drier to the touch, but it wasn’t prone to sheering out or to having fallout. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading was visible.
Colour Pop The Feels Pressed Powder Shadow
The Feels is a darker black with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin finish. There were finer shimmers and some micro-sparkle throughout the product that did translate to my skin. The shimmer/sparkle was readily diffused, though, so it was hard to keep it in place during blending.
It worked best (if one wanted to keep the shimmer/sparkle in place) to apply and only barely diffuse the edges. The texture was smooth to the touch, slightly firm but not thin or difficult to pick up, and the eyeshadow blended out nicely on my skin. It wore well for eight hours before fading but had a smidgen of fallout over time.
