ColourPop The Secret Life of Scorpio Eyeshadow Quad


The Secret Life of Scorpio

ColourPop The Secret Life of Scorpio Pressed Powder Shadow Quad includes two shimmer shades (mid-tone purple, red-plum) and two matte shades (light rosy mauve, berry-red). All four shades had opaque color payoff, were blendable, and longer-wearing with some powderiness, so you’ll want to do eyes before base in case of fallout.

Look Using this Product

That’s Deep

That’s Deep is a medium-dark purple with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had intense pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin as the consistency was smooth, lightly creamy, but ended up being a little too emollient to work with using a dry brush on my lid as it did not want to stick/adhere as well as anticipated. It needed more pressure to be pressed onto the skin than was comfortable on my eye (with a brush), so you’ll likely want to use this with a dampened brush or a fingertip for the best adhesion. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Burning Passion

Burning Passion is a medium-dark, reddish-plum with warmer undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It was slightly more loosely-pressed in the pan, so it had more chance to have fallout if I wasn’t careful to press/pack it on (or use it with a dampened brush). The eyeshadow was richly pigmented and lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Mystery (Scorpio)

Mystery (Scorpio) is a light mauve with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff paired with a smooth, more velvety texture that was dense without being too firmly-pressed into the pan. It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Secrets Secrets

Secrets Secrets is a deep, pinky-red with cool undertones and a matte finish. There was moderate powderiness in the pan, but it proved to be blendable, pigmented, and fairly easy to work with on bare skin. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably and left a bit of a stain behind.
