24 x ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadow Quad Ideas

ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadows ($5.00 for 0.05 oz.) are an excellent, budget-friendly powder eyeshadow choice. You can sometimes find them for $4.00 each and get a free four-pan palette to put them in, too. The downside is that their catalog changes frequently, so depending on how long after the original publishing date of this post, some shades may no longer be available. I tried to cross-reference with ColourPop’s website when building the following ideas to ensure the shade was available on the day this post was published.

Wow! These are so amazing.
Instant Smile really grabbed me but there are so many that I would love! Your creativity in putting these together is epic. Looks like I will be placing an order soon!

You have a gift for curating colors. You put together shades I wouldn’t think of but in looking at them I think they all work! Thank you for doing this – and I hope you do more creative things like this going forward. You have so much experience I really think you should do more. Maybe pairing lippies and toppers, or blushes and highlights?

This is great!!! I can probably duplicate a lot of these shades from my collection, so I am going to try out many of these combinations. I’m definitely bookmarking this page for reference. Thank you for all the thought and hard work you put into this cool idea.

Christine this is SO helpful!! Something about seeing them grouped makes it easier to choose shades. I’ve never used their shadows before but I just added a bunch to my cart. : )

This is why you are awesome! Thank you for the suggestions. I’m not good trying to make a quad as there are so many shades it gets overwhel,omg. This is great! Love the earth tone quads. Thanks again!!

Whenever I go to Colour Pop’s site I always click around and end up with nothing because I am always so overwhelmed with the choices. There are so many discounts and gifts with purchase I’ve missed out on because of my waffling. So this is an exercise in brilliance! Thank you. I like Beach Bum the most. Also, I can identify some nice army/olive greens I want to try.

Thanks Christine for those ideas!

I made a quad for myself with BPM, Chauffeur, Lay Low and Formation and it looks lovely!
Your Beach Bum quad idea kinda reminded me of it, but in a softer, less vibrant way 🙂

I love this! It helps me break out of my rut and inspires me to try new colour combos that I wouldn’t think of. I’m pretty sure I’ll end up playing an order for more colourpop shadows; I see some colours that I don’t have in my stash yet.

I wish they would make this Temptalia collection! I screenshot a bunch of these so the next time I have a sale I will be ready! I can’t imagine how long this took you, and it’s amazing you have such a gift.

Thank you so much Christine for organising all of this – so creative and well co-ordinated little quads. You really are so, so talented.
But oh my, I do wish that Colour Pop was in Australia. Lots of these shade are so beautiful and would rival any HE palette.

I love so many of the quad ideas! Especially beach bum… I might actually have to pick those up! A much scaled down version of the ND tropic palette. Thanks, Christine! 🙂
