Orange You Glad
Colour Pop Orange You Glad 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette is a new, orange-themed monochromatic palette. The palette itself was good overall with the shimmers being more emollient and more loosely pressed, so they tended to have a bit of fallout unless used with fingertips or a flatter, synthetic brush and a pressing motion.
There are six mattes, one glitter, and two shimmers in the palette, though three of the mattes and the glitter shade are “not intended for use in the eye area.” It’s not a palette that I’d say makes sense for anyone who adheres to those warnings. While some feel comfortable using pigment-type products on the eyes or glitter on the eyes, not everyone does, so I’m surprised that to see the repeated inclusion of a glitter shade (in particular) in the 9-pan palettes. If they wanted to be different, they could include a Super Shock Shadow!
Colour Pop Zested Pressed Powder Shadow
Zested is a medium, peachy yellow with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied fairly well to bare skin, but there was a bit of fallout and it sheered out a touch during application. The consistency was a little powdery in the pan but blended out evenly. It lasted well for eight hours on me before fading a bit.
Colour Pop Squeeze Me Pressed Powder Shadow
Squeeze Me is a light-medium orange with warm, golden shimmer throughout that gave it a more metallic finish. The texture was soft, more loosely pressed in the pan, and had a bit of slip to it, which made it apply best with fingertips or a flat, synthetic brush and pressed onto the skin. Otherwise, there was a bit of fallout, and the product didn’t go on as evenly. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation in one layer. It wore nicely for eight hours on me before it showed signs of fading.
Colour Pop Creamsicle Pressed Powder Shadow
Creamsicle is a light-medium orange with stronger, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a soft, lightly dusty texture that was a bit powdery in the pan, but it applied evenly and didn’t lose its intensity when blended out. The pigmentation was opaque and stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
Colour Pop Rise N Grind Pressed Powder Pigment
Rise N Grind
Rise N Grind is a brighter, light orange with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin and blended out with ease. The texture was a smidgen dusty in the pan, but it was soft and finely-milled to the touch. This shade is “not intended for use in the eye area.” On me, the eyeshadow lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.
Colour Pop Clementine Pressed Glitter
Clementine includes smaller and larger particle glitter that seemed to have a mix of more iridescent pieces along with peach-to-gold shifting pieces. The paleness of the particles, coupled with how flat they were (which I find does improve adhesion), made this shade more prone to taking on the colors around it, e.g. it looked more peach/orange when applied over a peach-orange eyeshadow. The glitter dispersed decently, but it wasn’t the easiest to spread out in my experience.
Colour Pop Sunkiss’d Pressed Powder Pigment
Sunkiss’d is a very light, yellowed orange with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich pigmentation that applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of color that blended out well along the edges but didn’t lose its intensity. The texture was smooth but a bit drier and firmer in the pan, though it wasn’t stiff or difficult to work with. This shade is “not intended for use in the eye area.” It wore well for eight hours on me before fading visibly.
Colour Pop Tangerine Dreams Pressed Powder Shadow
Tangerine Dreams is a light, golden orange with strong, warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The pigmentation was opaque, while the consistency was soft, more loosely pressed, but it had some slip and felt a little creamy to the touch. I had the best luck applying it with a fingertip or a flat, synthetic brush and pressing gently onto my lid to avoid the bit of fallout there was if I just swept it on. This shade lasted well for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.
Colour Pop Mimosa Mami Pressed Powder Pigment
Mimosa Mami is a bright, medium-dark orange with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. The texture was firmer, stiffer, and almost thin compared to most of the brand’s powder eyeshadows–it was harder to apply and blend out evenly, though it was workable without too much extra effort. This shade is “not intended for use in the eye area.” It stayed on well for eight and a half hours, and I didn’t notice any staining with the shade.
Colour Pop Ya Peel Me Pressed Powder Shadow
Ya Peel Me
Ya Peel Me is a medium-dark copper with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich pigmentation that applied well to bare skin, as the color went on evenly and blended out easily along the edges. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and picked up well with a brush and didn’t have fallout during application. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours on me before showing signs of fading.
