ColourPop x Disney Midnight Masquerade Palette Review & Swatches

Midnight Masquerade

Colour Pop Midnight Masquerade 15-Pan Shadow Palette is a new, limited edition palette that features seven matte eyeshadows, five shimmer eyeshadows, two Pressed Glitters, and one Pressed Pigment (the latter three shades are not intended to be used on the eye area). The eyeshadows performed consistently with ColourPop’s formula: pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. The only shade that I found to be below average was Merryweather, which could have been more pigmented and more blendable.

Spinning Wheel

Spinning Wheel is a pale, iridescent pink base with flecks of pink-to-violet shifting sparkle over a more pearlescent sheen. The eyeshadow had rich color coverage in a single layer, while the texture felt soft, lightly creamy, and was a bit thicker, which resulted in slight fallout during application. It wore nicely for eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.

Damsel (Midnight Masquerade)

Damsel (Midnight Masquerade) is a muted, medium-dark pink with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty texture that was blendable and didn’t seem prone to sheering out/having fallout. The eyeshadow stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Pip is a peachy-brown with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff paired with a soft, slightly thinner texture that was blendable without losing its intensity too readily. This shade lasted well for eight hours before starting to fade noticeably.

Enchanted

Enchanted is a medium-dark, orange-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily along the edges. The texture was soft, lightly powdery in the pan but maintained its intensity when blended. It wore well for eight hours on me before I noticed signs of fading.

Mama Odie

Mama Odie has a pink-peach base with heavy green-to-gold shifting shimmer. I very rarely could see the peachy base, so it was more of a bright, yellowy green at most angles. It had good color payoff but applied better with a fingertip or a dampened brush for full coverage in one layer. The texture was soft, lightly emollient, so the shimmer and powder bound together well. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Colour Pop Djali Pressed Powder Shadow

Djali

Djali is a muted, medium copper with warm, brownish undertones and a metallic sheen. It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, more loosely-pressed consistency that was best used with a lighter hand to minimize excess product getting kicked up in the pan. The eyeshadow applied well to bare skin and blended out evenly. I’d recommend gently pressing it onto the lid to avoid fallout. It lasted nicely for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Floating Lantern

Floating Lantern has a translucent base with lots of larger particle glitters in hexagonal shapes along with finer glitter particles that flashed from a rosy pink to a cooler, more silvery pink. It had medium to semi-opaque coverage (in the form of glitter) that had good dispersion and adhesion on its own, so there was little glitter migration during application and most of it stayed in place for eight hours.

Mrs. Potts

Mrs. Potts is a rich, medium-dark gold with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow had excellent color payoff that applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of product. The consistency was lightly creamy, dense without being thick, and blended out well. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading a bit.

Royal Ball

Royal Ball is a mixture of larger and finer particles of glitter in shades of white gold with some iridescence over a translucent base. It had semi-opaque “coverage” in the form of glitter and had good dispersion and spreadability. The product adhered well to bare skin with just a touch of migration/fallout. There was some migration if blended out along the edge as some came away from where it was initially applied. There was slight migration of glitter over an eight-hour period.

Nutmeg is a darker, brownish-copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation that applied well to bare skin as the color went on evenly and blended out easily along the edges. The consistency was soft, velvety, and a smidgen powdery in the pan but didn’t suffer from fallout during application. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

New Dream is a medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish.

Colour Pop Gaston Pressed Powder Pigment

Gaston

Gaston is a deep red with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer. The texture was soft, slightly thin but seemed to apply without issue as the color blended out easily. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

It is a Pressed Pigment, which is “not intended for use in the immediate eye area,” though the warning doesn’t seem to appear on the actual palette, just online by the list of ingredients.

It had nearly opaque color payoff in one layer, which was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too firmly nor too softly pressed in the pan. It wore well for eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.

Merryweather

Merryweather is a deep, faded navy blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that built up to mostly opaque coverage, but I’d recommend using it with primer for full coverage. The consistency was soft, slightly drier with light powderiness in the pan, and it was fairly blendable on my skin. It could have been easier to diffuse, though. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
