Bye Bye Birdie

Colour Pop Bye Bye Birdie 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new palette released in time for the holidays. It features a mix of finishes from Super Shock Shadow to Pressed Glitter.

The mattes seemed a bit more powdery than the average shade in the finish, but they were fairly pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing so just take care to tap off excess and/or apply eye makeup before base products. The Super Shock Shadows were sheerer, though sparkly, and worked better as highlighting shades (like for the inner tearduct) or layered over something else.

Note: Ruffled and Emuse Me are Pressed Glitters and Heron Chic is a Pressed Pigment; all three are “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.”

Aerial

Aerial is a soft, light-medium peach with pink-peach undertones and warmer, golden shimmer. It had medium coverage with a creamy, more emollient texture (it is a Super Shock Shadow) that turned to powder when it came into contact with my skin. It worked better as a wash of shimmer/sheen than it did as a standalone shade due to the sheerer coverage and slightly patchy application. It wore well for nine hours before fading noticeably.

FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and characteristics (like scent).

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.07 oz. - $85.71 Per Ounce

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow is a cream-based formula that comes in a multitude of shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip to them (they have a “wetter” feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. Almost every shade I’ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later). The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented.

From feedback I’ve seen from readers, many love them but some don’t like them at all. They aren’t a traditional cream eyeshadow, as they are denser (more sponge-like), and they apply best with flat, firm, synthetic brushes (I like the MAC 242 and 249) for me. The brand recommends using fingers for the most pigmented application, but I’ve only felt that fingers were necessary on a few shades (usually the super glittery ones).

The more matte shades can be on the drier side and vary from medium to opaque in coverage, though they're often buildable.  They can be a little hard to diffuse the edges of, though some are lovely to work with.

The more glittery shades have been the weakest to me, as they can be sheerer or harder to apply.  Sometimes, they are more pigmented and work like the other finishes in the formula, but often, they are sheerer and only function well patted on top of more pigmented eyeshadows to add glitter.  They do, however, tend to have little fallout over time with the occasional shade having a more moderate amount of fallout (but still less fallout than most powder eyeshadows with glitter).

Nesting

Nesting is a light-medium peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, while the texture was soft, lightly powdery but not prone to fallout or sheering out too readily. The eyeshadow applied evenly and blended out without any issues. This shade lasted nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

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.

Ruffled

Ruffled had a clear base with iridescent, multi-colored glitter in finer to larger hexagon-shaped pieces. The larger pieces were extremely irritating in the eye, and I could feel the edge of it against my lash line if it wasn’t properly laying flat. I noticed that the larger particles were very prone to moving around and didn’t adhere that well to my skin relative to the small and medium-sized particles. The more impressive part about it was just that the glitter dispersed fairly evenly when applied.

The product contains plastic glitter, which is not considered safe for usage on the eyes (there is a warning on the back of the palette about it).

Gander

Gander is a light, peachy gold with warm undertones and flecks of copper and gold sparkle paired with a metallic finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff in a single layer, which didn’t build up much beyond medium coverage. The texture was smooth to the touch with light slip, and it adhered well to bare skin without fallout but could have applied more evenly. It wore well eight and a half hours on me before I noticed slight fading.

Never More is a medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and flecks of gold and pink micro-sparkle over a metallic finish. It had rich color coverage that adhered well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of color that blended out easily along the edges.

Finch

Finch is a medium-dark berry with cooler undertones and a pearly sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth texture that was more firmly-pressed into the pan, but it picked up well with a brush and had great adhesion and blendability (but no powderiness). The eyeshadow stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Emuse Me

Emuse Me had a pink-tinted, more translucent base with flecks of multi-colored glitter, though a lot of it read lighter and more mid-tone pink. It had semi-opaque coverage, in the form of glitter, and dispersed evenly on my skin. It had light fallout/travel after eight hours of wear; it was better than old school glitter but I’d still strongly recommend using it with an adhesive base/spray just to be sure.

It does contain plastic glitter and was labeled as “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.”

On a Wing

On a Wing is a muted, medium lavender with neutral-to-warm undertones and warmer golden shimmer that gave it a metallic finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single pass, while the eyeshadow had a smooth, cream-like texture that applied easily and “melted” onto my lid and looked seamless. It lasted beautifully for eight and a half hours on me before creasing slightly.

Boo Bird

Boo Bird is a medium-dark, pink-coral with soft, warm undertones and barely-there flecks of gold sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkles didn’t add anything as they didn’t translate to the lid in practice. The texture was soft, somewhat powdery, but it wasn’t prone to sheering out too readily and didn’t give me fallout. It stayed on nicely for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Fly By Night is a medium-dark plum with warmer undertones and flecks of larger, gold sparkle over a more matte finish. The sparkles didn’t translate much on my l id when applied but did result in some fallout, so I wish they weren’t included (as they aren’t bringing anything to the party!). The texture was soft, lightly powdery and sheered out from opaque to semi-opaque a bit too readily and had to be built back up. It lasted well for eight hours before I noticed signs of wear.

I think the colours are in keeping with the movie from the 60’s (which I didn’t like even back then, and I’m not sure it has any meaningful connection to the film except for that very pink “bobby soxer” type vibe) but they have no appeal to me at all.

I didn’t like it, either, but never was a musical fan. Janet Leigh will always be Scarlett O’Hara, no matter what roles she took. Rather puerile film, if I recall. Pretty stellar cast for such a silly bit of fluff. As to the palette, pretty cohesive, but I’m wearying of the CP esthetic. It’s like the major cities of Europe in 5 days on repeat. My fave is duped in vacation mode, mahalo. The A shades are quite nice, though.

This palette just has too much glitter for me (and I like glitter). I went into this palette knowing I’d get the non eye safe glitter which was fine because I wanted to try it and knew exactly what I was getting into – they are fine for me with a glitter glue and care applying – but I don’t want any more of them, two is plenty to play with. I didn’t realize that there was so much glitter in the other shades. Fly By Night reminds me of my CP Pretty Cruel on glitter steroids and I wish that mattes with glitter in them was never a thing. Pretty to look at in the pan, but a pain for application and very rarely does the glitter translate on the eye. I have made some really pretty looks with this palette and for the most part enjoy it and will get lots of use out of it, but if there were more shimmer/metallic and less glitter I think it would be even better!

If only CP would substitute the pressed glitter shades with a good old fashioned shimmer, which they can do so well, then this palette would zing.
Lovely eye look Christine.

Absolutely right! I like glitter, just not these doggone pressed ones that seem to be all the rage. I did break down and buy this palette and actually used one of the pressed glitters as I went out dancing Saturday night. I spent too much time getting glitter off my eye area afterwards to make them pracical. More trouble than they are worth.🤷‍♀️

Here, here!! I agree. Does anyone like the pressed glitters? I haven’t seen a single positive review or comment. A lovely shimmer is as much shine as my older lids can handle.

There’s definitely an audience for glitter! I actually love the effect but find it hard to wear often (it’s just not really worth it for the potential irritation during/post-wear, after removal!). With the larger particle glitter (like the larger hexagon-shaped pieces), it’d be nice to just confine it to a glitter palette or to the singles (which they have). I’d love to see ColourPop do more with borosilicate glasses – which can give a really wet, sparkling effect that’s very glitter-like (as seen in Pat McGrath sparkly shades, Hourglass Scattered Lights, Kaja Trios!).

I imagine that they’re not seeing sales dip enough that suggest people won’t buy because the palette includes glitter; at ColourPop prices, I think it’s likely people are buying and not using the glitter shade (if they aren’t comfortable using them) and/or removing it (since they pop out). We might be seeing comments to one effect, but they know the sales, so there are still enough people purchasing (whether they actively want the glitter included or not).

My daughter loves these pressed glitters. She’s 18. She uses them more in her crease and parts of her upper eyelid area. So, that could be why she has no issues. She’s also used them as a highlight on the cheer to temple area while cheering on Friday nights. Again, she’s using them away from the “immediate eye area”. I love Colourpop. But as an adult woman in her 40s, I don’t think the glitters would work for me.

I’m on the fence about this palette. It has a couple shades in it that I really like and it would probably be cheaper and easier to get the palette rather than try to dupe those shades, but I’m not enamored by those stupid glitter shadows. I don’t put glitter on my face or in my hair, so what am I supposed to do with these? They’re not eye safe so why are they in an eye shadow palette? I don’t want the glitter to get in the other shades either. So dumb…
