Belle of the Ball

ColourPop Belle of the Ball Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a pink-themed set of shades with two warmer, pinky-coral shades and then a deep, cooler pink and a light, frosty pink. The four shades worked well together–even the more shimmery shade layered well with the more matte shades in the palette–and performed nicely.

Blow Me Away

ColourPop Blow Me Away Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a mix of warm peaches, corals, and oranges. Two of the four shades (Centerfold, Slim Fit) are not actually eyeshadows, they are “Pressed Pigments,” which are listed as “not intended for use in the immediate eye area” (in the same way that we have seen for some Make Up For Ever Artist Shadows, Urban Decay’s Electric Palette, and so forth). I did not make that connection when I initially used and tested the palette, which is why you’ll find some shades are applied to my eye.

Super Hard Core

ColourPop Super Hard Core Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light, buttery yellow with warm undertones and a sparkling, pearly sheen. It had opaque color payoff that applied nicely to bare skin–even, smooth, and never patchy. The texture was smooth, blendable, and just emollient enough to feel like a cream going on but it dried down to a powder-like finish that lasted all day (over ten hours).

The Knockout

ColourPop The Knockout Pressed Powder Face Duo ($16.00 for 0.52 oz.) features two large face powders–a blush and highlighter–housed in a cardboard palette with an interior mirror. The blush formula is supposed to have “long-wear” with a “soft” and “silky” feel that “can be layered for your desired intensity.” The highlighter formula is supposed to have “high-shine” with a “buttery-soft” feel that has “high colour intensity.” The two shades coordinated well with each other, and despite the difference in textures, actually layered nicely.

In general, ColourPop’s powder blush formula is thinner and can feel a little dusty or powdery, depending on the shade, and has sheerer, more buildable coverage, while the powder highlighter formula is much denser, almost to the point where a dense brush is required to pick up a modicum of product. The upside is the denser quality of the highlighter makes it harder to overdo it from the get-go, so the highlighter has a more buildable glow. I wish their blushes had more of the substance that their matte eyeshadows have, which would give them better adherence and overall coverage.

Likely

ColourPop Likely Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a muted, light-medium peachy, brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good color payoff that applied decently, but this was one of the streakier shades that was released recently. The formula seemed to run thinner and had less substance to it, which may have been why it looked streaky. It lasted for five and a half hours, but it was slightly drying after four hours of wear and started to pull into my lip lines at the same time.
