Colour Pop Blush Crush 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, peach- and rose-tinted neutral palette with a mix of mattes and shimmers. They were fairly easy to work with and had good pigmentation, were blendable, and lasted around eight hours.
The issue I had, though, was that three of the mattes contained random sparkle that wasn’t mixed in with the base, so the sparkles tended to result in fallout or just widely dispersed during blending (if they translated). I find this type of product pretty to look at but not really functional since most of it gets lost and/or contributes to mess during application.
Colour Pop Lovesick Pressed Powder Shadow
Lovesick is a light, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, velvety texture that was thicker and more substantial, so it didn’t have as much fallout and wasn’t prone to sheering out like some lighter, peach/beige shades are. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Colour Pop Pop a Bottle Super Shock Shadow
Pop a Bottle
Pop a Bottle is a pale pink with warmer undertones and flecks of pink and gold sparkle. It was a Super Shock Shadow, which is a cream-to-powder formula, and it was consistent with the formula: lightly emollient, squishy in the pan but applied and felt more like powder once on the skin. It had semi-sheer coverage that didn’t build up that well, and I see it working better as a layering shade to add some sparkle or to highlight. It lasted well for nine hours without fading or creasing.
Colour Pop The One Pressed Powder Shadow
The One is a medium, pink-leaning peach with a matte finish. The consistency was smooth, velvety, and blendable without being too powdery nor too firmly pressed into the pan. It had rich pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.
Colour Pop Enamored Pressed Powder Shadow
Enamored is a light-medium peachy orange with warm undertones and a subtle, pinkish sheen. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well. The texture was soft, smooth, and lightly creamy without being too dense or too firmly pressed into the pan. It wore nicely for eight hours on me before I noticed signs of fading.
Colour Pop Made U Blush Pressed Powder Shadow
Made U Blush
Made U Blush is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. There were sparkles strewn throughout the product but did not bind with the underlying color, so they were prone to getting trapped in one’s brush, dispersing to parts known and unknown, and otherwise getting more in the way than contributing to improved performance.
The eyeshadow had opaque color payoff that adhered evenly and blended out well aside from the sparkle. It lasted well for eight hours before fading, and this shade had so little sparkle that adhered, it didn’t seem to result in continuous fallout during wear.
Colour Pop Blossom Up Pressed Powder Shadow
Blossom Up is a medium-dark pink base with subtle, warm undertones paired with a lot of warmer, peachy gold shimmer and micro-sparkle. In practice, it read more peachy gold with slight pink undertone as opposed to a deeper pink. The texture was soft, smooth, and lightly emollient but adhered evenly with opaque coverage but had light fallout. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Colour Pop How Rouge Pressed Powder Shadow
How Rouge is a medium, rosy plum with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish with micro-sparkle strewn on top. It had that type of sparkle that looked pretty in the pan but contributed fallout during application–if any managed to actually “translate” from the brush. When I blended out the edges, stray sparkles dispersed to areas I had no desire for sparkles to me because they just don’t mix with the base color and are happy to fly away.
The base color had opaque coverage while the overall consistency was slightly dry and powdery in the pan but blended out evenly along the edges. It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit; there was a stray sparkle over time, too, but little adhered to begin with so fallout was very, very minor.
Colour Pop Cheek2Cheek Pressed Powder Shadow
Cheek2Cheek is a muted, medium-dark coral with moderate, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with less than a second layer. The texture felt slightly thinner and firmer in the pan, but I didn’t have issues picking it up nor when I went to blend out the edges. It lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.
Colour Pop Blush Wine Pressed Powder Shadow
Blush Wine is a medium-dark, reddened plum with moderate, warm undertones and flecks of gold micro-sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkles didn’t bind much with the underlying color, so it resulted in some fallout and imprecision as the sparkles dispersed when blending far further than the base color. It had opaque coverage in a single layer with a soft, lightly dusty texture that wasn’t too thin or too powdery, so it blended out nicely along the edges. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading; it seemed to have the tiniest amount of fallout but most of the sparkles seen in the pan didn’t translate to the lid to begin with.
