Colour Pop Night Owl 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition nine-pan palette for the holidays exclusively at Ulta. There are a few repeat shades in the palette, but all of the eyeshadows applied evenly, blended out well, had good pigmentation, and lasted between seven and eight hours on me. The palette itself coordinated well together with a good mix of shimmers and mattes. For someone who doesn’t have all their neutrals yet, this one might be worth checking out.
Colour Pop Lil Birdie Pressed Powder Shadow
Lil Birdie is a light-medium yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, velvety texture that was dense without being too thick or powdery in the pan. The eyeshadow applied evenly and wore well for eight hours on me before I noticed fading.
Colour Pop Bird Brain Pressed Powder Shadow
Bird Brain is a light-medium copper with warm undertones and a frosted finish. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely. The texture was soft, a little dusty in the pan, but it was easy to work with and didn’t have fallout. It lasted nicely for eight hours on me before fading a bit.
Colour Pop Rule the Roost Pressed Powder Shadow
Rule the Roost
Rule the Roost is a deep, mustard yellow with warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque in one layer, while the texture was soft, smooth, and velvety without being too powdery nor too firmly pressed into the pan. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before I noticed fading.
Colour Pop Bel Air Pressed Powder Shadow
Bel Air is a muted, light-medium brown with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage with a soft, lightly powdery texture that blended out easily and didn’t seem prone to sheering out or having issues with fallout. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading visibly.
Colour Pop Two Birds Pressed Powder Shadow
Two Birds is a bright, medium-dark orange-gold with strong, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was more loosely-pressed in the pan, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand and pressing the product onto the lid rather than sweeping to avoid fallout. It had opaque color coverage that lasted well for eight and a half hours on me.
Colour Pop Sea Stars Pressed Powder Shadow
Sea Stars is a medium, caramel brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent color payoff that applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of color. The consistency was soft, a little thin but not difficult to pick up or to blend out. It wore nicely for eight hours on me before I noticed signs of fading.
Colour Pop Rockin’ Robin Pressed Powder Shadow
Rockin’ Robin is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that easily built up to full coverage. The texture was blendable, lightly dusty but not prone to fallout, and easy to work with. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably on me.
Colour Pop Milli Pressed Powder Shadow
Milli is a rich bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was incredibly cream-like, silky to the touch, and smooth with a denser feel but wasn’t too thick when applied to bare skin. It was intensely pigmented and stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours on me.
Colour Pop Tweet Tweet Pressed Powder Shadow
Tweet Tweet is a deep, olive brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was incredibly soft, silky, and smooth with light slip and some creaminess when applied to bare skin, though it felt more like a really finely-milled powder overall. It had rich color coverage in a single pass, which wore well for eight 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.
