ColourPop Exes and Oh’s Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

 

Exes and Oh’s

Colour Pop Exes and Oh’s 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($16.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, Ulta-exclusive palette that features muted tones of red- and orange-toned neutrals in both shimmery and matte finish. For anyone who likes to wear these types of tones, it should be an easy palette to work with as the majority of the eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. A few of the mattes needed to be built up slightly for full coverage, while shimmers like Know Better just work best as layering shades or washes rather than standalone shades (there was no description from the brand that implied it was supposed to be sheer, though).

Colour Pop Know Better Pressed Powder Shadow

Know Better

Know Better is a pale pink with warmer undertones and flecks of silvery pink and gold sparkle. It had more of a transparent base, so it worked better as a layering shade patted on top of another eyeshadow for some shimmer or to add glitz to the inner tearduct. It could also be applied all-over the lid as a wash of sparkle. The texture was smooth, lightly emollient but blendable and had very little fallout when applied to my skin, though there was a bit of diffusion when I blended out the edge. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours with light fallout over time.

Formula Overview

$4.50/0.05 oz. – $90.00 Per Ounce

The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing” and “adheres easily to the eyes.” Most of the shades have semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation that applies well to bare skin, blends out without issue, and lasts for seven to eight hours. The matte eyeshadows tend to be a little more powdery, though soft and finely-milled, in the pan, while the shimmers have a creamier, dense consistency. Occasionally, the more sparkly or metallic shades apply better with fingertips or a dampened brush.

Stay Golden

Stay Golden is a brighter, muted red with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that needed half of a layer built on top for full pigmentation. The texture was soft, a little drier and dustier in the pan, but it applied evenly and blended out well, though I had slight fallout during application. It lasted well for eight and a half hours and left a faint stain after removal.

Hooky

Hooky is a medium brown with muted, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation that adhered evenly to bare skin in a single layer. The texture was soft, blendable, and had enough substance to work well without a primer as it didn’t sheer out too readily but still blended along the edge. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

C20 Something

20 Something is a bright, peachy gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It was more loosely-pressed in the pan, so there was some fallout during application, but the overall consistency was creamier and more silicone-heavy, which helped most of the sparkles to adhere to my lid. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours with light fallout over time.

Issues #2

Issues #2 is a light-medium, yellowed peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was soft with moderate powderiness, so there was some excess product kicked up in the pan and a touch of fallout during application if I wasn’t careful. This shade lasted well for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Rookie is a bright, medium copper with stronger, warm undertones and flecks of multi-colored shimmer and sparkle throughout. It had a cream-like feel–very smooth and emollient–but it applied with excellent pigmentation in a single layer and all of that sparkle adhered well and didn’t give me trouble with fallout during application.

Smitten

Smitten is a medium red with subtle, warmer undertones and cooler pink shimmer that gave it a pearly sheen. It had good color coverage, but it had a more silicone-heavy–but very thin–feel that made it harder to apply without the product moving around, so the overall application was uneven on my skin. It wore decently for seven and a half hours before creasing on me.
