ColourPop x Disney Midnight Masquerade Palette Review & Swatches

Midnight Masquerade

Colour Pop Midnight Masquerade 15-Pan Shadow Palette ($26.00 for 0.53 oz.) 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.

I couldn’t find any warning/disclosure on the physical palette, though mine is a press sample, but in recent months, ColourPop has denoted shades that have a warning with an asterisk by the shade name and the warning to follow at the bottom of the palette (both on the physical back of the palette as well as the cardboard carton it comes with). Online, the warnings are there within each shade’s respective ingredient list.

Colour Pop Spinning Wheel Pressed Powder Shadow

Colour Pop Spinning Wheel Pressed Powder Shadow

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.

Formula Overview

$4.50/0.05 oz. – $90.00 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 Mama Odie Pressed Powder Shadow

Colour Pop Mama Odie Pressed Powder Shadow

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.

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.

Colour Pop Floating Lantern Pressed Glitter

Colour Pop Floating Lantern Pressed Glitter

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.

It includes larger particles of plastic glitter, which are “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.

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.

Formula Overview

The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing.” The way the Pressed Pigments differ is that they’re not intended for usage on the immediate eye area.

The majority of the shades are semi-opaque to opaque in coverage, blend out fairly well, and can sometimes be a bit drier/more powdery compared to typical matte shades. They often wear eight to nine hours on me before fading, but many shades in the Pressed Pigment family leave some staining behind.

Quasimodo

Quasimodo is a darker brown with subtle, warm redidhs undertones and a matte finish. 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.

Formula Overview

$4.50/0.05 oz. – $90.00 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.

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.
