On Cloud Blue
ColourPop On Cloud Blue 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette is a new, blue-themed palette that included five matte eyeshadows, three shimmer eyeshadows, and one pressed glitter. The mattes were on the more powdery side, but most of the shades applied well without having to be used with a primer, though one would help. The shimmers were on the thicker side, so they were better-applied using a fingertip or a dampened brush.
Ice BB is a very light blue with moderate, cool undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow yielded rich pigmentation in a single pass, despite being somewhat powdery in the pan. There was light fallout during application but most of the product stayed intact without sheering out too quickly. It lasted well for seven and a half hours on me.
Blu Taffy is an icy white base with pale, bluish shimmer that gave it a metallic finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin but had some fallout as the texture was somewhat powdery, almost chalky as it was drier but clumpy. I’d recommend applying it with a dampened brush to minimize some of its issues. It showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear.
Clear Skies is a light blue with subtle, cool undertones and warmer, pale gold shimmer. The color payoff was nearly opaque in a single layer, but it was opaque when applied with a fingertip. The texture was moderately dense, slightly thicker, which made it harder to apply evenly without the added pressure and warmth of a fingertip. It stayed on decently for eight hours before fading visibly.
Playin’ is a light-medium, sky blue with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had nearly opaque color payoff that adhered well to bare skin and blended out nicely. The texture was lightly powdery with a smidgen of fallout if I wasn’t careful but was easy to work with overall. It wore well for eight hours before fading noitceably.
Deee-Light has a transparent base with flecks of white and iridescent glitter particles. It contained plastic (PET) glitter and is not approved for usage around the eye area. The texture was more emollient, almost wet to the touch, and had decent dispersion applied to the skin. There was some migration after eight hours of wear when I tried it as a cheek highlighter.
Bright Eyed is a muted, light-medium blue with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was lightly powdery, but it still managed to have mostly opaque color payoff that was buildable to full coverage. It showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear.
Luv Poem is a brighter, cyan blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff that adhered well to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. The texture felt soft, was somewhat powdery with light fallout, but it wasn’t difficult to work with. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Air Time is a bright, light-medium blue with cool undertones and a frosted sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single pass, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was slightly denser and thicker, though not to the point where it was difficult to work with, but sometimes the more powdery mattes worked better applied under it than over it initially. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.
True Blue is a faded, medium-dark blue with cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. The eyeshadow had semi-opaque color payoff that adhered evenly to bare skin but had some fallout while I worked with it. I’d recommend using it over an eyeshadow primer to build up the coverage as it was hard to do over bare skin. The texture was moderately powdery, slightly thinner and drier. It lasted decently for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.
