Aurora Struck

ColourPop Aurora Struck 30-Pan Shadow Palette ($35.00 for 0.92 oz.) is the newest, mega-sized palette from the brand inspired by the Northern Lights. It contains a wide variety of shimmers and mattes, along with a few glitters (with PET). Overall, the quality was as expected: mattes could be a little powdery but generally were pigmented and blendable, while the shimmers were less consistent and some were too emollient at times so they applied better with a fingertip or a dampened brush.

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.

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.

If one doesn’t have your Sydney Grace trio, plus probably Natasha Denona Glam Midi and a really good purply plum palette, then I’d say it’s alright. But I do, so I’m giving this a hard pass, as I just don’t need it.

That said; Kudos to you for doing these mega Mega palettes! That has got to be exhausting and tedious, especially when there’s some serious duds (and pressed glitter shades! *sigh*). Thank you for doing this so that we don’t go wasting our $’s when there’s so much better out there!

This is probably a good palette for beginners to makeup who want to try some colourful eyeshadows in a spectrum of light to dark pastel inspired shades.
It is quite a large palette, and the combinations of shades to wear are endless. Some may find it overwhelming. It would have taken a long time for you to test Christine.

I got this palette for Christmas and I’m really enjoying it! I find it easy to come up with different combinations. I like how the different color groups are laid out in vertical rows. Mainly, the palette is so frosty cool toned that it looks really good on my olive skin with cool undertones! And there is enough color to keep it interesting.

I rarely like Coulour Pop palettes, but I really like this one. However, the rating (plus shipping is crazy for Europe) and the lack of “wow” textures (though some of the colors are “wow” unique) puts this on a “only-if-I’m-visiting-the-States-and-catch-it-on-sale” list (which is like saying likely never). LOL!

This palette with the subtle grays, whites and other light colors would work great with your palettes, like the textures were better quality.
