ColourPop Gimme Sugar Eyeshadow Quad


Gimme Sugar

ColourPop Gimme Sugar Pressed Powder Shadow Quad is a new foursome that included two shimmery shades and two mattes. Three of the four shades were very workable, but one was rather sheer and powdery, which was more of a miss; it would be okay for blending out the darker matte but not as a standalone shade.

Whipped Cream

Whipped Cream is a very light pink with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy but not too dense or too firmly-pressed into the pan. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Gummy Bears

Gummy Bears is a bright, light-medium purple with warm, pink undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. The texture was thinner, though not as powdery as the brand’s matte eyeshadows typically are, which made for an easier laydown of product, but it was still blendable. It lasted well for eight and a half hours and left a faint stain behind.

Sour Candy

Sour Candy is a light-medium lavender with warmer undertones and a matte finish. The texture was moderately powdery and prone to sheering out, which made it harder to apply evenly and to build up. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that only improved to medium coverage applied over an eyeshadow primer. There were signs of fading present after six hours of wear.

Blackberry Bliss

Blackberry Bliss is a brighter, medium-dark pink with subtle, cool undertones and flecks of lighter, cooler pink sparkle over a metallic finish. It was more loosely-pressed in the pan and felt slightly drier, which resulted in some fallout during application. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin but was best applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush. It stayed on well for eight hours with light fallout over time.
