Two to Tango

ColourPop Two to Tango Pressed Powder Eye Duo ($10.00 for 0.10 oz.) contained a shimmering purple and a deep plum. The two shades complemented each other well, though neither was particularly standout in terms of quality. This duo definitely needed a primer and some extra effort to work well. This duo is limited edition and part of the brand’s Valentine’s Day collection. Some of the duos are sold out, and I really hope ColourPop will consider releasing the shades individually, at the very least.

Top Notch

ColourPop Top Notch Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing” and “adheres easily to the eyes.” It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The consistency was soft, lightly dusty but not too messy or fallout-prone during application, and blendable in practice. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

Wake Up Call

ColourPop Wake Up Call Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a light, peachy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing” and “adheres easily to the eyes.” It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which did not seem to build on me at all. When I tried it over an eyeshadow primer, it seemed to look richer but the consistency still seemed thinner and felt firmer in the pan. It started to fade on me after seven hours of wear.

Crushed Bloom

NYX Crushed Bloom Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder ($7.99 for 0.21 oz.) is muted, medium-dark peach with warmer, yellow undertones and a pink-to-gold shift paired with a soft, pearl finish. It yielded such a lovely glow on the skin–luminous, glowing–but never emphasized pores or appeared metallic. The shimmer in this particular shade seemed to be particularly fine.

The consistency was smooth, dense but not stiff or difficult to work with, and blended out easily on the skin. It was richly pigmented, but it was easy to control so sheerer coverage wouldn’t take real work (just a lighter touch). Depending on your skin tone, this may work as a highlighting blush or just as a highlighter. When I tried it, the highlighter lasted for eight hours on me before fading.

Hear Me Out

ColourPop Hear Me Out Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a light beige with a satin finish. The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing” and “adheres easily to the eyes.” It had intense pigmentation with a very smooth, cream-like texture that was a bit powdery on the skin when I started to blend it out–where the powder dropped below the brow bone and had a tendency to lighten whatever it was on. I would recommend using a lot less than you think you might need and adding more if necessary to get a good feel for the pigmentation and texture. It started to fade after seven hours on me.

NYX Snow Rose Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder ($7.99 for 0.21 oz.) is a very light, cool-toned beige with pink-to-lavender pearl that gave it more of a soft, frosted sheen. This was one of the more interesting shades (though the type of duochrome it had is something we have seen before), as it can really alter whatever it is layered over. On its own, the whiteness of the base color is rather apparent, so on my skin tone, it would be best when layered over another blush or highlighter. For someone very fair, it could definitely be worn more on its own without looking like it lightened one’s skin. The consistency was smooth, firm but not stiff or difficult to get pigmentation out of. It applied evenly to the skin, blended out well, and didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The highlighter wore well for eight hours before fading on me.
