Butter Me Up

Colour Pop Butter Me Up 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that’s available at Ulta. While the color story is new, the majority of shades have been released before, so those with larger ColourPop stashes will want to check for overlap.

The palette contains an assortment of Pressed Shadows (8), Pressed Pigments (3), and Pressed Glitters (2). The latter two formulations are “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.” ColourPop’s Pressed Glitter formula does use plastic glitter.

The Big 3

The Big 3 is a bright, gold-to-green shifting white with cooler undertones and a metallic finish. The consistency was soft, lightly creamy, and a bit more loosely-pressed in the pan, though I didn’t have issues with fallout. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which wore well eight and a half hours on me.

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.

Fleet

Fleet is a rich, deeper fuchsia-red with subtle, cool undertones and violet sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, slightly denser and more emollient texture. The eyeshadow applied evenly and blended out without difficulty. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

-

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.

Silk Street

Silk Street is a muted, medium berry with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that was fairly blendable but not the easiest shade to work with. The texture was drier, thinner, and had some dustiness to it. The color lasted well for eight and a half hours before I noticed fading.

Overpacked

Overpacked has a translucent base with a mix of pink glitter along with multi-colored glitter, though the pink dominated. The finer particle size works better for spreading and seemed to drive more “coverage,” though this particular version seemed more medium than semi-opaque as I’ve seen. It layered and built up better, though, and it had fairly even distribution. It wore well eight hours with light migration/fallout.

Ingredients

Polyethylene Terephthalate, Dimethicone, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Polybutylene Terephthalate, Polyurethane 33, Lauroyl Lysine, Magnesium Myristate, Acrylate Copolymers, Ethylene/Va Copolymer, Chlorphenesin, Dehydroacetic ACId, Aluminum. May Contain: Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492), Red 7 (CI 15850), Red 34 (CI 15880), 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.

Stay Golden is a medium, reddish-plum with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish.

Island Hopping

Island Hopping includes a mix of finer, iridescent gold glitter and larger, multi-colored small and medium-sized hexagon glitter. The texture felt emollient to the touch, which helped the majority of the glittery pieces to adhere to skin without immediately dispersing. The product had good spreadability so that most of the particles were evenly distributed, except some of the larger hexagon pieces. There was light fallout/migration over an eight-hour period.

On a Whimsy

On a Whimsy is a bright, light silver with cool undertones and a metallic finish. The consistency was soft, lightly creamy, and not too dense or too thick, so it applied well with opaque coverage that blended out with ease. It wore well for eight and a half before creasing faintly.

Paradiso

Paradiso is a rich, medium-dark berry with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had rich color payoff in a single layer, which went on evenly and blended out nicely along the edges. The texture was smooth to the touch but felt more firmly-pressed into the pan than I recall the original pan feeling, though it didn’t inhibit application but needed a slightly heavier hand to pick up initially (but definitely not stiff!). It lasted well for nine hours before fading visibly.

Made to Last

Made to Last is a light-medium, taupe brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was lightly powdery in the pan, but it had opaque color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin and wasn’t prone to sheering out. I’d use a lighter hand or gently tap off excess if you’re heavier handed to ensure there’s no fallout. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading a bit on me.

Night Dream

Night Dream is a deep black with neutral-to-cool undertones and a semi-matte finish; there were faint micro-sparkles strewn throughout. It had a denser, firmer texture that required a heavier hand in order to pick up product efficiently and evenly with a brush. Some of the fine sparkles translated onto my lid during application, as there seemed to be some slip to the formula. It had opaque color coverage that blended out decently but could have been easier to use. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

Reckless

Reckless is a medium-dark burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, velvety texture that felt more substantial than most of the brand’s mattes. I’d recommend using a lighter hand with this to avoid a bit of fallout but also to ensure that it remains blendable; going full-on seemed to yield more product than necessary and made the blending a bit more time-consuming. This shade lasted nicely for nine hours before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

-

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.

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!

Definitely an interesting color story going on here. I really love the plums with the 2 very icy shadows, and I usually don’t like silver eyeshadow! Would I buy it? Probably not, just because of the glitter.
