Colour Pop Flutter By 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, “cooler”-toned neutral palette with pinks, mauves, and some deeper plums/browns for contrast. The products performed consistently with past experience using these formulas; they were, generally, pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing with a few of the shades being a little powdery in the pan (but application went fine).
The palette includes one Pressed Glitter (Overpacked) and two Pressed Pigments (Gotta Fly and Ch-Ch-Changes), which all come with the warning “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.”
Colour Pop Just Imagine Pressed Powder Shadow
Just Imagine is a medium, rosy peach with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had opaque color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of product. The consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable without little effort. It lasted well for eight hours on me before fading a bit.
Colour Pop Wild Wing Pressed Powder Shadow
Wild Wing is a muted, medium mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had a soft, blendable texture that was dense, more substantial, but it wasn’t too powdery nor too heavy when applied to bare skin. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer that blended out nicely along the edges. The color showed signs of wear after eight hours.
Colour Pop Made to last Pressed Powder Shadow
Made to last
Made to last is a muted, medium plummy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, almost velvety texture that was a little dusty in the pan but proved to apply well without fallout. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Colour Pop Gotta Fly Pressed Powder Pigment
Gotta Fly is a medium-dark, reddened plum with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer paired with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that had some slip but adhered evenly and wasn’t prone to sliding around. It lasted nicely for eight hours on me before creasing slightly.
Colour Pop Sunflare Pressed Powder Shadow
Sunflare is a light pink with subtle, warm undertones and cooler, aqua shimmer. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented with a soft, more loosely-pressed texture, but it applied well with a gentle pressing/patting motion (did not require use with a brush or wet) for even, smooth application. It wore well for eight hours before I noticed slight fading.
Colour Pop Overpacked Pressed Glitter
Overpacked is a multi-colored glitter over a translucent base. It had small-sized glitter–larger than shimmer or sparkle but not the larger, more visually noticeable hexagon-shaped glitter that the brand sometimes releases. It seemed mostly pink with flashes of green, blue, teal, and gold throughout. It had medium to semi-opaque “coverage” in a single layer. The product had good spreadability, and while it had better wear than glitters of the past, there was still some migration/fallout over eight hours.
Colour Pop Mariposa Pressed Powder Shadow
Mariposa is a medium-dark mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. There were flecks of micro-sparkle, but they did not translate to the lid. The texture was soft, blendable, and easy to work with overall, though a smidgen powdery in the pan. It had rich pigmentation that lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.
Colour Pop Angel BB Pressed Powder Shadow
Angel BB is a deep, reddish-brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. There was nearly imperceptible micro-shimmer running through it, but it aided in blendability without diverting from its matte finish in practice. It had rich color coverage in a single layer. The consistency was soft, a smidgen dusty in the pan but it applied evenly, blended out easily, and lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.
Colour Pop Lush Pressed Powder Shadow
Lush is a medium beige with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a slightly powdery texture, but it retained most of its coverage when applied to bare skin and did not have issues with fallout. The color payoff was nearly opaque in a single layer and wore well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.
Colour Pop Ch-ch-changes Pressed Powder Pigment
Ch-ch-changes is a medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage with a slightly thinner, firmer texture that required a heavier hand to pick up (or else applied and built up in layers). The color stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.
Colour Pop Getaway Pressed Powder Shadow
Getaway is a soft, golden beige with muted, warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish. It was richly pigmented with a soft, more loosely-pressed texture, but it was the type of metallic that “melted” when applied to bare skin, so it was shiny and smoothing. I’d recommend applying with a pressing and patting motion and using a lighter hand to pick up product to minimize the chance of fallout. It lasted well for eight hours before I noticed slight fading.
Colour Pop Float On Pressed Powder Shadow
Float On is a deep brown with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had excellent color payoff in one layer, while the texture was soft, blendable, and not too firmly nor too softly pressed into the pan, so it was easy to work with. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.
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.
