By the Rose
ColourPop By the Rose 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette is a new eyeshadow palette with four true mattes, one sparkly matte, and four shimmers in a warmer pink and coral palette. Though I believe that including both Sunday Soiree and Effervescent made the palette less versatile than it could have been, the eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing.
Sparkling is a light pink with a sparkling sheen and strong, warm undertones. It had an opaque color payoff and a smooth, moderately emollient consistency with good bare skin adhesion and minimal fallout. It stayed put for eight hours before starting to fade.
Picnic Basket is a pale pink with a matte finish and strong, warm undertones. Even when blended out, the consistency was denser, velvety, and smooth, giving it better grip and opacity. This shade lasted for eight hours before noticeably fading.
ColourPop Over Ice Pressed Powder Shadow
Over Ice is a light-medium pinky-coral base with a metallic finish and lighter, peachy-gold shimmer. The eyeshadow had a rich color payoff that blended well along the edges and adhered evenly to bare skin. Smooth, lightly emollient, but not overly dense texture. It lasted for about eight hours before starting to fade.
Sunday Soiree is a matte pinkish-coral with subtle warm undertones. It had a silky, almost cream-like texture that was velvety without being powdery. It had a rich pigmentation that lasted for eight hours before visibly fading.
ColourPop Cheers Babe Pressed Powder Shadow
Cheers Babe has a medium pink base with flecks of lighter gold and pink metallic shimmer. It was densely pigmented and had a smooth, almost cream-like texture that was easily picked up with a dry brush. The eyeshadow lasted for eight hours before starting to fade.
Effervescent is a matte, deep reddish-coral with moderate, warm undertones. The eyeshadow had an opaque color payoff and a soft, smooth texture that wasn’t powdery or too firmly pressed into the pan, making it blendable but not sheer. After eight hours of wear, there were signs of fading.
Ripe is a plummy bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. Because the texture was looser, there was some fallout when I blended this shade on my lid. It had opaque color coverage that lasted for eight hours and adhered evenly.
Sweetness is a deeper, medium-dark brown with warm undertones and flecks of gold glitter in a matte finish. Due to the larger flecks of sparkle that did not bind with the underlying color, the consistency was powdery, and it was prone to fallout. It had an opaque pigmentation that lasted for eight hours before noticeably fading.
Savor It has a matte finish and is a deep reddish-copper color with subtle warm undertones. It had a nearly opaque color payoff that could be built up to full coverage in under half a layer. Without being too powdery or firmly pressed into the pan, the texture was soft, smooth, and velvety. It lasted for eight hours before visibly fading.
