A Flutter

Colour Pop A Flutter 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that features Pressed Powder Shadows (8), Pressed Glitters (2), and Pressed Pigments (2). The latter two formulas are “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.” The palette is a warmer-toned affair with a stronger leaning toward orange, but the shades also were a bit richer and brighter.

Most of the shades have been released before, whether in palettes or as individual pans, so it might overlap if you’re a ColourPop palette connoisseur! Otherwise, the products performed as expected with the eyeshadows and pigments having good pigmentation, blendability, and wear, while the Pressed Glitters had high coverage and good spreadability.

Hungry Ghost

Hungry Ghost is a pale, white gold with slight iridescence and a true glitter finish–a lot of small to mid-size hexagon-shaped glitter particles. It had a translucent base, but there was high “coverage” based on how packed it was with glitter. It had a slightly emollient quality to it, which helped the glitter spread and disperse evenly across an area and helped to minimize fallout/migration. There was light fallout/migration after eight hours of wear.

Ingredients

Polyethylene Terephthalate, Dimethicone, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Lauroyl Lysine, Magnesium Myristate, Chlorphenesin, Dehydroacetic Acid, Polyurethane 33, Aluminum, Iron Oxides (CI 77492), Red 7 (CI 15850), Yellow 5 (CI 19140).

NOTICE: All products categorized under "Glitter" contain Polyethylene Terephthalate, also known as plastic or PET glitter, and it is typically cosmetic grade glitter. Inclusion of this ingredient sometimes carries a warning (in the US) that the product is "not intended for use in the immediate eye area." This ingredient has not been approved for usage on the eyes per the FDA. In recent years, some brands are including this product in their eyeshadows without any warning or callout and effectively marketing them as eyeshadows or including a symbol of an "eye" which suggests eye usage. Via CosIng for EU, PET glitter is permitted without any restrictions or limitations. For an in-depth look at whether cosmetic grade glitter is safe, please view this post.

Transcend

Transcend is a soft, peachy beige with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium coverage with a moderately powdery texture that was prone to sheering out and dropping some fallout. It lasted well for seven hours before fading noticeably. This shade worked better for diffusing the edges of other shades rather than as a really standalone shade.

FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and characteristics (like scent).

Formula Overview

$4.50/0.05 oz. - $90.00 Per Ounce

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.” Most of the shades have semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation that applies well to bare skin, blends out without issue, and lasts for seven to eight hours.

The matte eyeshadows tend to be a little more powdery, though soft and finely-milled, in the pan, while the shimmers have a creamier, dense consistency. Occasionally, the more sparkly or metallic shades apply better with fingertips or a dampened brush.

Side Tracked

Side Tracked is a light-medium brown with warm undertones and flecks of gold micro-sparkle over a matte finish. I didn’t feel like the sparkles translated during application, so it was functionally a matte finish in my experience. The texture was soft, lightly powdery but very blendable and easy to work with. It had opaque pigmentation that wore well for eight hours before I noticed fading.

Fly Away

Fly Away is a medium-dark gold with strong, warm undertones and a bright, metallic sheen. The texture was smooth, almost cream-like, and not too dense nor too firmly pressed into the pan, which made it easy to apply to bare skin. It had rich color coverage that adhered beautifully and stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.

Satin Wings

Satin Wings is a soft, peachy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had good color coverage that had to be built up to be fully opaque. The consistency was soft, moderately powdery with a touch of fallout if I wasn’t careful. It lasted well for eight hours before I noticed signs of fading.

Grove

Grove had a translucent base with finer, copper glitter and larger, iridescent hexagon-shaped glitter throughout. It had nearly opaque coverage in a single layer, despite having the translucent base.

It includes plastic glitter and is not intended for use on the immediate eye area.

Dwindle

Dwindle is a medium, pink-leaning coral with moderate, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture felt like the cream-powder formula of Super Shocks, and the way it came away from the edges of the pan reinforced that.

There was a light slip and emollience to the pan when touched, but it quickly turned to a powder-like product when it came into contact with my skin. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that adhered well to bare skin and blended out nicely. It lasted well for nine and a half hours before fading visibly.

Meteorite

Meteorite is a rich, medium-dark orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had nearly opaque color coverage that adhered evenly and was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The consistency was drier and thinner compared to most of the brand’s matte shades, though, so it worked better with a slightly firmer pressure. It wore well for nine hours before fading visibly.

OOO

OOO is a bright, neon orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The product had opaque color payoff in one layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. The color seemed to mute just slightly when applied to my skin so a primer might keep it truer to color. The consistency was lightly powdery but didn’t seem prone to fallout. It lasted well for nine hours before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

$4.50/0.05 oz. - $90.00 Per Ounce

The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing." The way the Pressed Pigments differ is that they're not intended for usage on the immediate eye area.

The majority of the shades are semi-opaque to opaque in coverage, blend out fairly well, and can sometimes be a bit drier/more powdery compared to typical matte shades. They often wear eight to nine hours on me before fading, but many shades in the Pressed Pigment family leave some staining behind.

Swallowtail

Swallowtail is a rich, deep berry with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single pass, but it needed to be topped up slightly for full intensity. The texture was soft, dense, and more substantial, but it wasn’t difficult to blend out on my skin. It wore well for nine hours and left a faint stain behind.

Good quality. Very pretty eye look. But I already have shades like these across several palettes. Now, as for these 2 particular glitters, I would so use them on….my NAILS! Hungry Ghost over a pale gel polish would look utterly amazing for an icy winter mani!

Haven’t tried it yet with CP pressed glitter, but if I get to do so, I will likely apply it over still slightly tacky polish with a fingertip or an old flat brush, press it in gently and very carefully, then apply a gel topcoat. Then, hope it all works out!

For the sake of those who’ll want this palette, I am glad it reviewed well but this is all too pink for me and, as someone posted the other day about refusing to purchase palettes with that potentially “bad for the eyes” glitter, I feel much the same way, to be honest (though it’s easy to refuse to purchase something that is full of colours I don’t like and which also isn’t available in stores).
