ColourPop Bling Time 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette is a very warm-toned, neutral color story that included five matte eyeshadows, three shimmery eyeshadows, and one pressed glitter. As one might suspect, the pressed glitter was harder to use and seemed sheerer/drier than some of the better pressed glitters by the brand. Otherwise, the remaining eight shades were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing–very nice aside from the glitter shade.
Like Candy has a slightly darker, pinker-peach base with lighter, more contrasting peachy-gold shimmer that gave it a metallic finish. The color was dominated by the shimmer, so it read more peachy-gold overall. The texture was smooth, lightly emollient, which ensured it was usable both wet and dry. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.
Ring It Up
Ring It Up is a light-medium brown with warmer, yellower undertones and a matte finish. It had rich pigmentation with a smooth, almost velvety texture that had light powderiness but wasn’t prone to sheering out or having fallout during application. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.
So Ultra is a very light orange base with warmer, yellower undertones and lighter, whitish shimmer/micro-sparkle that gave it a metallic sheen. It had opaque color payoff that adhered evenly to bare skin. The texture was smooth to the touch, lightly emollient, and easy to work with using a dry brush. This shade showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.
Money Honey is a slightly muted, medium orange with moderate, warm undertones–balanced between red and yellow–paired with a matte finish. The consistency was smooth to the touch, more velvety and substantial, which helped the eyeshadow apply with full color payoff in a single layer while blending out with ease. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Labeled is a light, peachy gold glitter with a transparent base. This was a pressed glitter, so it included plastic (PET) glitter and is not intended for use on the eye area. I found it to be a sparser, slightly drier pressed glitter relative to the rest of the brand’s shades in the finish, though it still had good dispersion of the glitter particles for an “even” finish. There was some fallout/migration when used as a cheek highlighter over an eight-hour period.
Flashy is a bright, almost neon, orange-leaning coral with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well. The texture was soft, a little powdery in the pan but not prone to sheering out or having fallout during application. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Tag Me is a medium-dark brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage paired with a smooth, velvety texture that was lightly powdery in the pan but not prone to fallout during application. It lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.
The Razzi is a medium-dark, orange-leaning copper with a metallic finish and faint micro-sparkle. The consistency was smooth to the touch, more loosely-pressed but had enough slip that it picked up readily with a dry brush and applied with minimal fallout. It had opaque color payoff that wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.
Blink is a medium-dark, rich brown with warm, more orange undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and blendable, albeit somewhat powdery in the pan so using a light touch was key to avoiding fallout. It had opaque color coverage that stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
