Colour Pop Fame 16-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($22.00 for 0.56 oz.) is a new neutral palette that’s supposed to be filled with cool-toned shades but would argue that it’s more of a neutral-to-cool leaning palette than overtly cool-toned. There were several shades that read warm-toned to me whether I looked at them in the pan, swatched, or applied (like Extravaganza, Delirium, Dazzle, Privy). There were a few that appeared cooler applied than they did in the pan (Clubhouse in particular), too.

I found the shimmers did not come together as well on bare skin or over primer with most needing a dampened brush to come together, adhere evenly to the lid, and have more opaque coverage without having to build up or pack on. The latter is where I felt like the palette came short for me–it’s one thing to use a dampened brush to amplify the shine or deepen a color here and there, but it was unexpected to feel like it didn’t work that well without a wetting agent.

On a subjective note, I felt like the palette could have skipped a couple of the light shades and gone for a mid-tone and deeper shimmer shade and instead of having such a deep shade (Lifestyle) two mid-tone to dark hues.

ColourPop Fame Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($22.00 for 0.56 oz.) is a new 16-pan palette that is supposed to be a cool neutral palette (I’d say it’s neutral-to-cool but a few shades looked warm-toned to my eye, even if they were less warm-toned than the usual variations!). Here are swatches!

Birthday Wish

Colour Pop Birthday Wish Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft, muted gold with a sparkling, glittery finish. The consistency was smooth, lightly emollient without being too slippery, and yielded semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer (almost opaque when patted onto the skin with a fingertip). It felt and performed like most of the brand’s “Ultra-Glitter” finish shades–particularly good for layering, inner corner highlighting, and the like. It wore well for 10 hours with very little fallout.

This shade will be included free with any $10+ purchase on ColourPop beginning May 10th at 10AM PST through May 14th, while supplies last (so it might end earlier).

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.07 oz. - $71.43 Per Ounce

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow is a cream-based formula that comes in a multitude of shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip to them (they have a “wetter” feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. Almost every shade I’ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later). The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented.

From feedback I’ve seen from readers, many love them but some don’t like them at all. They aren’t a traditional cream eyeshadow, as they are denser (more sponge-like), and they apply best with flat, firm, synthetic brushes (I like the MAC 242 and 249) for me. The brand recommends using fingers for the most pigmented application, but I’ve only felt that fingers were necessary on a few shades (usually the super glittery ones).

The more matte shades can be on the drier side and vary from medium to opaque in coverage, though they're often buildable.  They can be a little hard to diffuse the edges of, though some are lovely to work with.

The more glittery shades have been the weakest to me, as they can be sheerer or harder to apply.  Sometimes, they are more pigmented and work like the other finishes in the formula, but often, they are sheerer and only function well patted on top of more pigmented eyeshadows to add glitter.  They do, however, tend to have little fallout over time with the occasional shade having a more moderate amount of fallout (but still less fallout than most powder eyeshadows with glitter).
