ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadow Review and Swatches
Eyeshadow Palettes are my weakness and I can never resist trying a new eyeshadow palette, but I love my individual eyeshadow collection just as much. There’s just something so satisfying about a magnetic palette filled with single eyeshadows you’ve chosen in your favourite shades and formulas to curate your perfect palette. When it comes to single eyeshadows, I have over 50 Makeup Geek eyeshadows and whilst I do really love them and get a lot of use out of them, the ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadow formula is my absolute favourite so I’ve been slowly collecting more and more shades so I can fill one of the Makeup Forever Magnetic Palettes with their beautiful shades.
I’ve placed a fair few ColourPop hauls recently but in my most recent massive ColourPop haul I showcased these four ColourPop Shadow shades and there are no words to describe how stunning they really are. The ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadow eyeshadows are just $4/£3.01 and they contain a generous 1.5 grams each. You can purchase the shadows in cardboard sleeves, or alongside an empty shadow compact which is just $1 and contains a mirror which is amazing value.
The four ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadow eyeshadows I chose were; Glass Bull, Baby Lights, Mr. Sandman and Snake Eyes. I have many of the ColourPop shimmer, satin and matte shades but I chose these four as they all have an incredible multidimensional duochrome finish making them super unique and the swatches are even more incredible in real life. The swatches are just one swipe of my fingertip on unprimed, dry skin and they swatch as if they’re cream eyeshadows rather than powder, and they have a wet look foiled finish when applied to the eyelids.
ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadow – Glass Bull
“Handle this duochrome lavender icy-blue with care”
ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadow – Baby Lights
“Let this metallic green gold twinkle the night away.”
ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadow – Mr. Sandman
“This icy rose with a silver sheen is the cutest that you’ve ever seen.”
ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadow – Snake Eyes
“Caution: this pale pink taupe could be deadly”
If you haven’t tried the ColourPop eyeshadows yet, I cannot recommend them enough and even if they were priced as highly as the MAC eyeshadows at £14 each, I would genuinely still purchase them as they’re the best single eyeshadows I’ve ever tried. I’ve tried individual eyeshadows from Anastasia Beverly Hills, Makeup Geek, MAC, Makeup Forever, Morphe, Neve Cosmetics, Coastal Scents, BH Cosmetics and many others, and nothing compares to the ColourPop Shadow formula.
These shades are so unique to anything else in my collection, and they’re so multi-tonal that they look like different colours in different lights. All four of these shadows are insanely smooth, silky and cream-like in how emollient they are to apply and they become even more impressive should you layer them over a primer. I just can’t rave about them enough, they are so, so beautiful and I want every single ColourPop shadow. I don’t know how they make these shadows as high quality as they are for just £3 each.
Have you tried the ColourPop eyeshadow formula before? Do you have a favourite shade?
