Sprinkle a Little Magic
ColourPop Sprinkle a Little Magic 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette is a new, limited edition nine-pan eyeshadow palette that included four matte eyeshadows and five shimmery eyeshadows. It was a green-themed color story with pops of pink/mauve throughout. The eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and easy enough to work with, though some of the shades were powdery or had a bit of fallout during application (though generally consistent with ColourPop’s current eyeshadow formula).
Look Using this Product
Second Star is a darker, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was moderately powdery, so I had to be careful to avoid fallout, but it was blendable and was a more velvety matte that yielded mostly opaque coverage. It stayed on well for seven hours before fading a bit.
Small Fairy is a medium-dark gold with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a soft, more loosely-pressed consistency that had some fallout during application. To minimize the fallout, you’ll want to pat it onto the skin with a fingertip or a dampened brush. It lasted decently for eight hours but had light fallout over time.
Big Magic is a muted, light-medium rosy mauve with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage with a soft, lightly powdery texture that was still substantial enough not to lose its coverage when applied to bare skin and blended out. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Tink is a bright, light mint green with subtle, warm undertones and cooler, bluish shimmer and a metallic finish. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The texture was lightly creamy, moderately dense but not thick, and picked up well with a dry brush. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
Pixie Dust is a light, bright chartreuse green with strong, warm yellow undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was soft, slightly drier and more loosely-pressed, which resulted in some fallout during application when I applied it dry. I’d recommend using it with a fingertip or a dampened brush to get more even coverage and to minimize fallout. It had mostly opaque, buildable color payoff that lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Neverland is a medium-dark forest green with subtle, warm undertones and cooler-toned, fine emerald green pearl that gave it a soft, metallic finish. The consistency was lightly emollient to the touch, smooth, and was best applied with a dampened brush or else really pressed/patted onto skin to avoid fallout. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage that wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
Sleep is a bright, grassy green with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was lightly powdery and prone to sheering out slightly when applied to bare skin. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation that blended out without too much effort. This shade showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.
Place Between is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of faint sparkle over a more pearlized sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was moderately dense but not too thick or too firmly-pressed into the pan. It lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.
Awake is a deep green with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that was somewhat buildable but would be best applied over an eyeshadow primer for full coverage. The texture was soft, blendable, and a little powdery in the pan but wasn’t prone to fallout during application. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.
