Big Poppy

ColourPop Big Poppy 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($14.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, all-matte eyeshadow palette that revolved around warmer, more orange-leaning shades. The eyeshadows were mostly opaque to opaque in coverage, blendable and easy to work with, and had good longevity. The bigger “downside” was that some shades were more powdery, so there was light fallout during application, but they were typically more substantial, so they remained pigmented and still went on evenly.

Day Tripper

Day Tripper is a light-medium peach with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, moderately powdery texture that had some fallout during application, so it was better to use earlier on in a look as it could cause other shades to lighten and lose some warmth. The color showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear.

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.

Mellow

Mellow is a medium peach with strong, warm orange undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin and blended out nicely without losing its intensity. The texture was more velvety and substantial, which helped it have better adhesion. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Get Around

Get Around is a bright, medium orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency seemed slightly thinner and a touch drier, which resulted in this shade being more prone to reacting to any natural oils/tackiness on the skin. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation with a fairly blendable texture, but it was a shade better over dry skin or over a primer. It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

So many of us sigh at these CP releases. Oooh, yeah. Been there, done that. But we should remember that there are millions of fans coming up, who are new to stash building and m/u acquisition. If I were a newbie, I’d be all over this, both in the late 70s and now! It’s the muted, shy cousin of Yes, Please and Orange You Glad? This is orange/rust with a very low bold factor. I like it!

Agreed. Given the price point and packaging, CP releases seem appealing and appropriate for young consumers just starting to amass a collection.

I’m glad I waited on swatches for this because I’d assumed it would be redder… I guess poppies come in orange too. I lukewarm like it still but I have enough orange.

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!
