ColourPop Dallas Mavericks 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette is a new, limited edition palette in collaboration with the Dallas Mavericks based on the team’s colorways. The quality was decent, but the matte eyeshadows were on the powdery side, so I found an eyeshadow primer was necessary overall and that doing eyes first would be preferable due to some fallout.
The Hangar is a pale gray with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was more substantial, which gave it a velvety feel and better, more opaque color coverage that adhered to skin without immediately sheering out as very light mattes often can. This shade showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours on me.
AAC is a bright, iridescent bluish-white with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a more transparent base, which would work as more of a topper product, whether to highlight the inner tearduct or over a darker eyeliner/shadow. The texture was lightly emollient but a little chunkier to the touch. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.
Run and Gun
Run and Gun is a light-medium taupe with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, more velvety but somewhat powdery, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand and tapping off excess to manage the fallout. It had opaque color coverage that wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Victory Park is a bright, bluish-silver with cool undertones and a shiny, metallic finish. The eyeshadow had rich color payoff paired with a lightly creamy, moderately dense texture that picked up readily with a dry brush and had great adhesion to bare skin. It lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.
Mavs is a light, sky blue with moderate, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied well to bare skin and diffused nicely along the edges without sheering out. The texture was lightly emollient, denser without being too firmly-pressed. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.
Pegasus City is a bright, cornflower blue with strong, cool undertones and flecks of silver sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkles didn’t translate much to the lid, and there was light fallout during application of both sparkles and some of the actual blue powder as it had a fairly powdery texture. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that sheered out somewhat, so I’d use it over an eyeshadow primer to give it better hold. It wore well for seven hours before fading noticeably.
Royal is a faded, denim blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was thinner and a little powdery, which resulted in more medium color coverage that was hard to build up, even over an eyeshadow primer. It lasted decently for seven hours before fading a bit.
1980 is a medium-dark gray with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff paired with a soft, lightly powdery texture that was blendable without being prone to sheering out too readily. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.
DAL is a deep, bluish-purple with a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that adhered fairly evenly to bare skin but had light fallout during blending. The texture was soft, smooth, and moderately powdery so using a lighter hand and building up was ideal. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
