ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadows

Here’s a recap of the original set of ColourPop Pressed Powders ($5.00 for 0.042 oz.) that launched! Some were lovely, while some were misses, but they are promising and I look forward to seeing more shades in the future. Did you try any?

Colour Pop Just In Time

PPermanent. $5.00/0.04 oz.

Just In Time is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted finish. The pigmentation was fantastic, while the texture was smooth, creamy without being too powdery or too dense, and easy to blend out on the lid. Read full review.
