ColourPop Sweet Talk Palette Review & Swatches

Sweet Talk

Colour Pop Sweet Talk 12-Pan Makeup Palette ($18.00 for 0.4 oz.) is a new palette that contains nine eyeshadows, two Pressed Glitters, and one Pressed Pigment.  The eyeshadows were actually not quite up to snuff–they were a little more powdery, little drier to the touch, and some had more fallout or sheered out when applied; normally, I find ColourPop’s formula to be consistently high in quality with a few exceptions. By no means were the eyeshadows bad, just when you’re used to more A-level quality, B-level is a surprise.

The Pressed Glitters and Pressed Pigment are “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.” I couldn’t find the warning on the palette or its exterior packaging, just on ColourPop’s website in the ingredients’ list. I’d really love brands to be clearer or help us as consumers understand the nuances of this designation–knowing that it is approved in other countries is useful to know. CIR issued a final assessment regarding the use of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) in cosmetics here and here the listing for Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), what ColourPop is using, in the EU’s CosIng database.  Fellow beauty blogger Phyrra did a deeper dive trying to figure out the status of glitter in the US by contacting the FDA in 2012, who effectively stated they were using only discretionary enforcement for “a period of time,” seemingly to allow products to be on the market with glitter without taking action. If anyone has more informative links for regulation, I’d love to look into it further (I tried but did not find much that was useful).

Catch Me

Catch Me is a soft peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery texture. The eyeshadow applied fairly well to bare skin, but there was a bit of fallout as I diffused and blended it out. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.05 oz. – $100.00 Per Ounce

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.

Colour Pop Side2Side Super Shock Shadow

Colour Pop Side2Side Super Shock Shadow

Side2Side

Side2Side is a light-medium orange with warm, yellow undertones and flecks of pink and peach sparkle. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a smooth, emollient texture–lightly creamy but thin and more powder-like as soon as it hit my skin. It blended out easily along my skin, didn’t have fallout over time, and stayed on well for nine hours on me.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.07 oz. – $71.43 Per Ounce

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow is a cream-based formula that comes in a multitude of shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip to them (they have a “wetter” feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. Almost every shade I’ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later). The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented.

From feedback I’ve seen from readers, many love them but some don’t like them at all. They aren’t a traditional cream eyeshadow, as they are denser (more sponge-like), and they apply best with flat, firm, synthetic brushes (I like the MAC 242 and 249) for me. The brand recommends using fingers for the most pigmented application, but I’ve only felt that fingers were necessary on a few shades (usually the super glittery ones).

The more matte shades can be on the drier side and vary from medium to opaque in coverage, though they’re often buildable.  They can be a little hard to diffuse the edges of, though some are lovely to work with.

The more glittery shades have been the weakest to me, as they can be sheerer or harder to apply.  Sometimes, they are more pigmented and work like the other finishes in the formula, but often, they are sheerer and only function well patted on top of more pigmented eyeshadows to add glitter.  They do, however, tend to have little fallout over time with the occasional shade having a more moderate amount of fallout (but still less fallout than most powder eyeshadows with glitter).

Colour Pop Garden Date Pressed Powder Shadow

Colour Pop Garden Date Pressed Powder Shadow

Garden Date

Garden Date is a bright, medium-dark coral with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good color payoff but needed a second layer or to be applied with a wet brush for full coverage. The texture felt a little drier and more loosely-pressed, and it took a bit more pressing and gentle buffing to even out the initial application, though it was blendable along the edges with little effort. It lasted nicely for eight hours on me before it started to fade visibly.

Work It is a bright tangerine with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was soft, lightly powdery in the pan, and seemed a touch on the drier side, though I didn’t have any issues with applying and blending out the eyeshadow aside from a touch of fallout.

Colour Pop Prima Drama Pressed Glitter

Colour Pop Prima Drama Pressed Glitter

Prima Drama

Prima Drama is a peachy mix of glitter–both finer and larger, chunkier glitter–that shifted a bit from peach to copper. When I tried to photograph this shade straight-on, it looked like teal glitter, which was inaccurate, so I only kept the swatch that represents what I saw (both straight-on, in person, and when angled). It had more medium coverage when applied with fingertips (as recommended by the brand), and it did have an emollient base, which helped the glitter to adhere to skin.

As a cheek highlighter, it definitely lost its interest when sheered out–it looked a bit textured and just didn’t catch the light as nicely as when it was worn at higher-coverage. It was better when applied over another blush or bronzer, which gave it a bit more depth and helped the glitter contrast against the underlying cheek color. There was minimal glitter that had traveled beyond where I had applied it after eight hours of wear.

It’s a new formula called Pressed Glitter, which is “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.” For me, my eyes can be on the more sensitive side, and I tend to be wary of glitter, so I only tested this formula on my cheeks (as a highlighter). I wish this advisory was on the palette/box that one receives (I looked but couldn’t find it); it’s only listed with the shade’s ingredient list.

Meadow is a muted, medium-dark orange with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, blendable, and a little powdery in the pan, but the color was opaque in a single layer when applied to my skin and diffused easily along the edges.

Early Mornin’

Early Mornin’ has a more translucent base packed with what looked like orange-gold and gold glitter, possibly some peach/pink glitter. This is another Pressed Glitter shade, which is “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.” It had good coverage in a single layer and applied best with fingertips for maximum payoff but also to help move and spread the product out on skin. I patted it lightly along the higher point of my cheekbone, and it looked okay, but it didn’t catch the light as well when sheered out; it was better when applied over a more noticeable blush color as a way to add extra glitz. The majority of the glitter stayed in place with only minimal travel apparent after eight hours. It was difficult to get off entirely from my skin–I tried cleansing twice, cotton swabs dipped in makeup remover, and glitter persisted (well, in various areas — it wasn’t like it was stuck to where I had applied it anymore!).
