Colour Pop Love Bird 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette is a new(ish), limited edition palette that features three Pressed Shadows, three Pressed Glitters, two Pressed Pigments, and one Super Shock Shadow. Aside from the glitters, the products were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing with No Egrets being not as blendable as one might like (though not bad for the intensity and type of color!).
The Pressed Glitters contain plastic glitter, and this formula along with the Pressed Pigment formula, all come with the “not intended for use in the immediate eye area” warning. The Pressed Glitters are an improvement over glitter-packed shades from years ago, as they are more emollient, which gives them better adherence and grip on my skin, but they can still have fallout/migration over time (and it’s hard to remove every particle during removal).
Colour Pop Peacocky Super Shock Shadow
Peacocky is a soft, light-medium peach with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had nearly opaque color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well along the edges. The texture was emollient, lightly creamy but felt more powder-like once it came into contact with the skin (it seems to be a Super Shock Shadow). It wore well for nine hours before fading a bit on me.
Sing-a-Song is a medium pink with strong, warm undertones and cooler, iridescent pink and gold sparkle. It had nearly opaque color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out without fallout. The texture was smooth, lightly emollient, and dense without being too thick or too firmly pressed into the pan. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.
Cheep Cheep is light, white gold small-sized glitter particles that shifted from bright, white gold to light-medium gold with opalescent, smaller glitter particles throughout. The glitter particles were suspended in a translucent base, so it had more medium to semi-opaque coverage overall. It had plastic glitter, which came with the warning that it wasn’t intended for use around the eye area.
This shade had good dispersion and spreadability with minimal fallout during application. There was slight fallout/migration during eight hours of wear.
Indio had a mix of darker, pink glitter and holographic glitter suspended in a translucent base. It was small to medium-sized glitter pieces with some finer pieces in the background. The product contains plastic glitter, and it was listed as not intended for use around the eye area.
The texture was lightly emollient, and the glitter had good dispersion when applied to skin without sheering out too readily. It had nearly opaque coverage in a single layer, so a little went a long way. There was slight migration/fallout over an eight-hour period.
Colour Pop Side Chick Pressed Powder Shadow
Side Chick is a brighter, medium-dark pink with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had good pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The consistency was slightly drier and dustier in the pan, so there was a touch of fallout during application, but it was blendable and easy enough to work with. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
On a Lark
On a Lark is a brighter, medium fuchsia pink with subtle, cool undertones and flecks of micro-sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkles didn’t translate much during application, so it was functionally a matte finish. The consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too powdery nor too firmly pressed into the pan. It had rich color coverage that lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.
Colour Pop No Egrets Pressed Powder Pigment
No Egrets is a bright, medium-dark burgundy with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had a denser, more substantial texture with a touch of dryness to it, though it was smoother than other red-heavy shades (on average). It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly but took more effort to diffuse and blend out.
