ColourPop x NBA Boston Celtics Eyeshadow Palette

Boston Celtics

ColourPop Boston Celtics 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette is a new, limited edition nine-pan palette that featured three shimmery eyeshadows with six more matte eyeshadows in the team’s colors. The majority of the eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and lasted around eight hours, though there was some powderiness or light fallout to contend with overall.

17 Rings

17 Rings is a bright white with a subtle, blue-green shifting pearl. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that applied well to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. The texture was soft, more loosely-pressed but not dry. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Lucky

Lucky is a light green with moderate, warm undertones and a frosted finish. The consistency was drier, more loosely-pressed, so there was light fallout and a tendency for the eyeshadow to apply a little unevenly and with more semi-opaque coverage. I’d recommend using it with a fingertip or a dampened brush to improve application and coverage. It lasted well for seven and a half hours before showing signs of fading.

Back Bay

Back Bay is a light beige with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was almost cream-like as it had slip and felt velvety, which gave it a substantial feel on my skin–rather than being really powdery–and had opaque coverage. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Celtic Pride

Celtic Pride is a medium taupe-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and matte finish. It had rich pigmentation paired with a smooth, velvety texture that applied evenly and blended out well. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Rivalry

Rivalry is a bright, minty green with strong, cool undertones and a metallic finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color payoff in one layer, which applied evenly to my lid and diffused nicely along the edges without being prone to fallout or sheering out. The texture was smooth to the touch, dense without being overly firm, and picked up well with a dry brush. It lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Tradition

Tradition is a light, pastel green with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, more velvety, and only lightly powdery, which helped it achieve full pigmentation in a single layer while remaining blendable. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Shamrock

Shamrock is a medium-dark grass green with subtle, warm undertones and lighter, cooler blue sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkles didn’t translate onto my lid, but they didn’t seem to wind up as visible fallout (I’d guess they got trapped in my brush). The texture was moderately powdery, and the fallout was more from the underlying green powder than the sparkles as a result. It had opaque color coverage that sheered out somewhat in practice. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Dynasty

Dynasty is a bright, medium green with strong, cool undertones and a pearly sheen with faint gold contrasting pearl. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely. The texture was moderately dense, slightly thinner when picked up but not powdery or chunky. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

1946

1946 is a rich, emerald green with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had a slightly drier, somewhat powdery texture, though it managed to yield full color payoff that blended out without too much extra effort. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
