Downtown looks very similar in the photos to Adios from the ColourPop Rebound quad, maybe just a tad bit warmer, so I probably don’t *need* it… but very pretty!

I have Hanky Panky and it’s nice, couldn’t be easier to apply (fingers). It pulls a bit warm on me (very fair) so to diffuse the grungy look (if I want) I lightly tap I <3 This or Get Lucky over it. It's great for the crease, though, no frills.

I’ve been eyeing Downtown, will add to my ColourPop buy list (which keeps getting longer and longer), think it will make a nice brown smoky eye. And I think Hanky Panky might make a good crease or transition shade

I have to thank you for my addiction to ColourPop. I just made an order this morning. I could honestly replace my entire eye shadow collection with theirs and not be sad.

They really do! I have a lot of the brights, Fantasy and Slave 2 Pink are definitely amazing. I think I have 12+ shadows right now (with more on the way) and not one of them is bad.

With my eye shape, normal powder shadows like to migrate and muddle together. That doesn’t happen with these shadows and they really stay put!

hello christine!

how about the texture of colourpop matte eyeshadow? is it exactly the same like the one in shimmer & pearlized finish? or do they easier to blend with brush?
thank you πŸ™‚

They’re still the same cream-based formula, Angie! As always, blendability depends on the shade – you can read the reviews above as I note that characteristic!

Uh. Am I the only one who had no idea that ColourPop does mattes??! Where have I been???? And why isn’t Downtown in my life?!

I see Hanky Panky as a great warm transition shade for fair complexions. Despite having Barcelona Beach and MAC Kid, I’m really gonna try it, because it’s is a cream, friendly, long-wear option, and one of the shades I use the most.

Love to see “A” on such a budget worthy product! Love the look too! I finally ordered the rebound quad and 3 blushes yesterday! The sale made me do it. πŸ™‚

Oh fun! More awesome colors to put on my Colourpop to buy list. I love this brand so much, for so many reasons–color selection. formula and price–and I’m forever grateful to you for putting it on my radar. I had a few minutes this morning and I just put a little So Quiche on my eyelid and blended it out into the crease with my fingers. I didn’t use primer and ten hours and one plane ride later it still hasn’t creased on my oily eyelids.

They have SO many new releases right now! Hope they can keep up the good quality/formula πŸ™‚

The wear of these things is really impressive – just insane to me!

Yay, more Colourpop swatches = my vanity keeps growing. Signnn. I depend on you for these to make purchase. Thank you! The pattern of these eyeshadows kinda grosses me out though. It’s like full of holes. >.<

OMG, where was Hanky Panky two years ago when they temporarily discontinued MAC’s Kid? I literally had to wait until near the end of 2014 to find it on the website. And for $10 cheaper? Ugh. Perfect transition shade!
