ColourPop Pineapple Cake Pressed Powder Quad includes two shimmery shades and two matte shades. This quad was very tonal, and while there was some change in depth, the colors definitely were more prone to running together and losing their contrast applied. All four shades had semi-opaque to opaque coverage and lasted for eight hours with one shade (To the Core) requiring more effort to apply well.
ColourPop Sandy (Pineapple Cake) Pressed Powder Shadow
Sandy (Pineapple Cake)
Sandy (Pineapple Cake) is a light yellow with subtle, warm undertones and a green-gold shifting shimmer. It had rich pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t too firmly pressed into the pan but wasn’t prone to fallout. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.
La Pina is a bright, medium yellow with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It was less warm-toned (less orange-based) compared to most shimmery yellows. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and dense without being too thick, so I didn’t struggle to pick up product on a dry brush, though it did go on more smoothly with a fingertip or dampened brush. It had opaque coverage that lasted nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
To the Core
To the Core is a medium yellow with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer. The texture was soft, somewhat powdery, and a little thinner, so it could have applied more evenly to bare skin. I’d use this one over a primer ideally. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
So Sweet is a medium-dark yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a soft, smooth consistency that was lightly powdery in the pan but had good adhesion to bare skin and wasn’t prone to sheering out too readily. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours and left a bit of a stain behind.
