ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadows [Swatches + Review] by Jinra Ilustrisimo on Feb 23, 2017

9
After reviewing the pre-made ColourPop Hi-Maintenance and Lo-Key Pressed Powder Shadow palettes, we couldn't just overlook the Pressed Powder Singles. At $5 each, these singles had me ready to mingle! More than just ready... I went HAM on Pressed Powder Shadows in Come And Get It, Wait For It, Making Moves, Stay Golden, Backseat, Goody Two-Shoes, Silver Lining and Piece of Cake. Read on for swatches and my thoughts:

Background/Claims

Product information from the official ColourPop web site:

"Highly pigmented shadow that applies evenly and feels ultra-velvety and silky. This long wearing formula contains a unique combination of softer powders which adheres easily to the eyes, gives a soft focus effect, and blends smoothly and evenly."

Design/Packaging

Each pan is 1.20 g / 0.04 oz and comes packaged in small, super cute envelopes:


Here's how it scales against a penny:

Each pan is magnetic so if you have a Z-Palette or anything similar, it will easy attach without the use of an additional magnet. This is what my Pressed Powder Shadows look like in their habitat:

Shade/Texture

Regardless of finish, I found all shadows to be extremely smooth, easily blendable and buildable. The pigmentation of both finishes are above average -- you are definitely getting a good deal at $5 each. Here's a description of the shadows featured in this review:

Come and Get It - "When you're ready come and get this duochrome rose with a gold flip"
Wait For It - "This matte hot peach is LEGEN --- DARY"
Making Moves - "This matte hot coral is always doin' big things"
Stay Golden - "Be a ponyboy in this matte raspberry"
Backseat - "Buckle up in this metallic deepened aquamarine"
Goody Two-Shoes - "Cross your T's, dot your I's, and mind your P's and Q's in this metallic gunmetal"
Silver Lining - "Add this matte dusty purple to your playbook"
Piece of Cake - "You can have this matte dusty indigo and eat it too ..but don't actually eat it, please"

Swatches in Natural Indoor Lighting:


In Action

Here I have Wait For It as my transition shade, Silver Lining in my crease, and Come and Get It on my lid.


Scent

None.

Performance

At $5 each, you can't go wrong with this on-trend assortment of ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadows. The finishes and shades are true to their description, the pigmentation is above average and they're easy to apply if your eyelids are primed. There is minimal fallout, but that can't be avoided.

If you're looking to experiment with color or wanting some budget-friendly, good quality eyeshadows, I highly recommend ColourPop's Pressed Powder Shadows!

Availability: ColourPop.com, $5 each
