All Amethyst

ColourPop All Amethyst 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($14.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a new, limited edition purple-themed palette with five more matte eyeshadows and four more shimmery eyeshadows housed in a cardboard compact. One of the shimmer eyeshadows was packed with silicones, which is something I have found results in uneven application, but the remaining shades performed fairly well.

Brilliant

Brilliant is a whitish lavender with strong, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had medium pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin. The texture was smooth, moderately emollient and more silicone-heavy. It lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

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.

Feb's Gem

Feb’s Gem is a medium-dark pink with cool undertones and a matte finish. It felt slightly firmer in the pan, so I had to use a heavier hand to pick up product evenly, but I didn’t have issues diffusing the edges in practice. It had full color coverage that wore well for eight hours on me.

For those who love the amethyst range of shade will be disappointed in this offering because, even to me, it’s a bit ho hum – nothing special or a new take on this shade. And then CP sabotages themselves by making one of the most lovely shades in the palette, Amulet, a complete dud.

Aspasia Avatar

Of course, the color that looks the most interesting performs the worst. Purple is my favorite color and I was tempted to buy this, but I don’t want to buy something that’s just okay, especially when I have other purple-themed palettes that perform much better.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
