ColourPop It’s a Mood Eyeshadow Palette

 

It’s a Mood

ColourPop It’s a Mood 30-Pan Shadow Palette is a new palette that includes 26 regular eyeshadows, three Pressed Glitters, and one Pressed Pigment. Ah, you almost thought ColourPop was done with including Pressed Glitters in their eyeshadow palettes, but alas, we were all wrong! wrong! wrong! Some shades were very nice, some shades were so-so, and the shades that weren’t as high quality were often shades that are less common and tend to be sheerer or more powdery (like matte purples and teals).

The three Pressed Glitters seemed drier and were more prone to fallout/migration compared to others I’ve tried in the past, so I did feel like those ratings brought down the palette overall. When I excluded the Pressed Glitter ratings, the palette rated closer to an A- (~90%). Aside from quality, there was some overlap in shades in practice. For example, Don’t Deny is the better version of Self-Control, as it was very similar in color, depth, and undertone but didn’t have the random sparkle. Stay Close, Everywhere, and It’s a Rush ran together, so I think excluding Everywhere or giving a richer, more red-orange would have made the palette more versatile.

Love Song

Love Song is a light-medium, peachy gold with strong, warm orange undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was more loosely-pressed and a little drier, despite having a smoother, almost creamy feel to it when I touched it. It had mostly opaque color coverage with slight fallout during application. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Bonafide

Bonafide is a medium beige with soft, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage with a soft, smooth consistency that was lightly powdery but not prone to sheering out too readily. It lasted well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Stay Close

Stay Close is a brighter, light-medium orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had a soft, lightly powdery texture that had slight fallout if I wasn’t careful, but it applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. It had opaque color coverage that wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Nightcall

Nightcall is a light, rosy mauve with warmer undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, smooth, and a little powdery, but it applied evenly, had full color coverage, and blended out well. The eyeshadow stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

You and I

You and I is a light brown with soft, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich pigmentation with a soft, somewhat powdery texture that had a little fallout if I wasn’t careful when initially laying down the color. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Surrender

Surrender is a bright, yellowy gold with moderate, warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. It had opaque color payoff that adhered well to bare skin with a smooth, even laydown of product. The texture was moderately dense, lightly emollient, and picked up fairly well with a brush but had a touch of fallout if I wasn’t careful to press it on. This shade showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

Dream On

Dream On is a bright, orange-leaning copper with strong, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The eyeshadow felt more loosely-pressed in the pan, though it had some slip to it, which helped it adhere best with a fingertip or a dampened brush in order to avoid fallout. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer. There was fading visible after eight hours of wear.

Reunion

Reunion is a medium peach with warmer, pinky-orange undertones and lighter, peach shimmer. It had mostly opaque, buildable color coverage that applied well to bare skin and blended out nicely. The texture was smooth, lightly emollient, and easy to work with. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Crave U

Crave U is a medium orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, a little powdery but blendable and not prone to fallout. It had opaque color coverage that wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Thunder

Thunder has a medium, reddish-plum base with blue-to-teal shifting pearl and a metallic finish. It had opaque color coverage paired with a soft, lightly emollient consistency that applied evenly and blended out without issues. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Feels Like

Feels Like is a medium, greenish-aqua with subtle, warm undertones and warmer, golden shimmer paired with a metallic sheen. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation, but the texture was slightly drier and thinner, which made it look almost faded and less shimmery once on my lid. I’d recommend using it with a dampened brush or fingertip, which seemed to keep the color truer for longer. It lasted well for seven hours before fading noticeably.

ColourPop Ritual Pressed Glitter
ColourPop Ritual Pressed Glitter

Ritual

Ritual is a dark gold with strong, warm undertones that contained smaller and larger glitter particles. It was a pressed glitter, so it was not intended for use around the eye area. It had a more emollient feel to the touch, which gave it decent dispersion when patted/pressed onto skin. It adhered decently for six hours of wear before there was noticeable migration.

Midnight Run

Midnight Run is a light brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, blendable consistency that was lightly powdery in the pan. The eyeshadow stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Everywhere

Everywhere is a muted, medium peachy orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage paired with a soft, lightly powdery texture that was blendable with a touch of fallout if I wasn’t careful. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Full Circle

Full Circle is a rich, orange-copper with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin with light fallout from the slightly more loosely-pressed and drier texture. This shade showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

Echoes

Echoes is a faded, medium-dark purple with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was moderately powdery, which made it more prone to sheering out, but it had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that was workable and did blend out without difficulty. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.

Don’t Deny

Don’t Deny is a deep green with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied evenly and blended out well, but it had a more powdery texture that was prone to sheering out so it had to be built back up. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Oblivion

Oblivion is a rich, medium olive green with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, almost velvety texture that was soft, finely-milled, and only a little powdery in the pan. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Wanna Go

Wanna Go is a rich, olive gold with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow had opaque color payoff in a single pass, which applied well to bare skin as it went on evenly and blended out along the edges without losing its intensity. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

ColourPop Stormy Pressed Glitter

Stormy

Stormy is a darker, pinkish-red with warm undertones and a glitter finish. It had smaller glitter particles throughout–and lots of them–and was marked as a Pressed Glitter, so it was not intended for use around the eye area. There was some adhesive properties to it, but it felt drier and was more prone to fallout/migration during application than most Pressed Glitters from the brand. The fallout/migration was noticeable after five hours of wear.

It’s a Rush

It’s a Rush is a burnt orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, which adhered well to bare skin and blended out nicely. The consistency was soft, a little powdery but not prone to fallout or sheering out too readily. There was fading visible after eight hours of wear.

Moves

Moves is a medium purple with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly finish. It had opaque color coverage that had a smooth, almost cream-like feel, but it was thin and difficult to press onto the lid without using a fingertip. I had a fair amount of fallout when I tried to use it with a dry brush. The eyeshadow stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

For a Nite

For a Nite is a deep navy blue with strong, cool undertones and a soft, pearl sheen. The texture was more emollient to the touch with a smoothness, but it applied best with a fingertip or a dampened brush as I felt a dry brush didn’t push the product onto the lid well and yielded fallout. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Surface

Surface is a rich, medium gold with soft, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented, while the consistency was smooth, lightly emollient but easy to work with using a dry brush. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Our Deal

Our Deal is a dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that was easily built up to full coverage with less than a second layer. The texture was soft, slightly thinner and moderately powdery, so fallout was a bit of an issue. This shade showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

Fascination

Fascination is a burgundy red with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a slightly thinner, more powdery texture that yielded some fallout and made it more prone to sheering out. The product could have been more blendable as well. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

ColourPop New Moon Pressed Glitter

New Moon

New Moon has a darker, reddish-copper base with flecks of finer gold and red glitter and larger, gold glitter pieces. It was a Pressed Glitter, so it is not intended for use around the immediate eye area. The texture was more fragile and loosely-pressed, which resulted in difficulty picking up product evenly. There was more slip, too, that made the glitter get pushed around and not distribute as evenly as ideal. There was noticeable migration of glitter within four and a half hours of wear.

Had to Be

Had to Be is a blackened plum with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had medium color payoff, which was somewhat buildable, and had a moderately powdery texture that was prone to sheering out and had light fallout. The eyeshadow blended out without too much work, though, and it would be best paired with a primer. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Self Control

Self Control is a deep, bluish-teal with cool undertones and flecks of sparkle over a matte finish. The eyeshadow had noticeable fallout due to the sparkles, which didn’t bind with the base. It had opaque color coverage paired with a soft, moderately powdery consistency. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Mystified

Mystified is a darker emerald green with cool undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation that applied well to bare skin and blended out with ease. The texture was soft, a little powdery in the pan, but it wasn’t prone to sheering out or having fallout. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
