ColourPop x Hocus Pocus Witching Hour Eyeshadow Palette

Witching Hour

ColourPop Witching Hour 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette that included five shimmery shades and seven matte shades. Most shades were semi-opaque to fully opaque, but the formula on the shimmers made them best applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush. The mattes seemed a little thinner than recent releases, but they were fairly blendable and long-wearing.

300 Years

300 Years is a medium-dark, golden peach with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich color payoff paired with a soft, lightly creamy texture that was more loosely-pressed but not prone to fallout. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

All Hallow’s Eve

All Hallow’s Eve is a very light orange with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, smooth, and somewhat powdery in the pan, but it maintained its opacity when applied to bare skin but still blended out with ease. This shade lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Moon is Round

Moon is Round is a bright, yellowy orange with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage with a smooth, more velvety texture that was moderately powdery, so I had to be careful to tap off excess to avoid fallout. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

Summon Us

Summon Us is a light brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had full color payoff in a single layer, though the texture was moderately powdery and resulted in the product sheering out in practice. It stayed on decently for seven hours before fading visibly.

Under the Ground

Under the Ground is a rich, molten gold with strong, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was smooth, moderately creamy to the touch, and dense without being overly firm. It had rich pigmentation that lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Bubble Bubble

Bubble Bubble is a deeper orange-coral with warm undertones and lighter, peachy-gold shimmer that gave it a frosted finish. It had opaque color coverage paired with a moderately-dense consistency that wasn’t overly firm but felt a little drier once I started to apply it to my lid so it didn’t go on as smoothly as I expected. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Twist the Bones

Twist the Bones is a medium purple with warmer, pink undertones and flecks of violet and silver pearl throughout. It had a drier, thinner texture that was best applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush as it resulted in a smoother, more even application of color. It had opaque pigmentation applied dry, so it was really a texture issue. This shade showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear.

Circle of Salt

Circle of Salt has a blackened base with emerald green shimmer and sparkle throughout. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied fairly evenly to bare skin but definitely had to be layered and diffused a little more than other shimmers in the palette as the texture was slightly drier and thinner. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Green Newt

Green Newt is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque, buildable color coverage paired with a soft, blendable texture that was lightly powdery in the pan but easy to work with on the lid as it wasn’t prone to fallout. It lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Life Potion

Life Potion is a medium coppery orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, more velvety, and somewhat powdery in the pan, but it yielded opaque coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and didn’t seem prone to fallout. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Hello Billy

Hello Billy is a medium purple with warmer, pink undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. The texture was slightly drier and more firmly-pressed in the pan, so there wasn’t any fallout to worry about. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Fur Black as Black

Fur Black as Black is a deep teal with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation with a fairly soft, blendable texture that applied evenly to bare skin but took a little extra effort to blend out the edges. It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.
