California Love

Colour Pop California Love 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($16.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, warm-toned neutral palette featuring a mix of mattes, shimmers, and glittery shades across an assortment of hues ranging from mid-tone peach to mid-tone taupe. Diego felt too emollient, which made it harder to apply it evenly without using it with a wet brush, while Surfrider was overly firm, so it was stiffer and took more effort to use it.

Diego

Diego is a light, golden copper with a sparkling, metallic finish. It had more medium, buildable pigmentation, which seemed to be owed in part to the more emollient, silicone-heavy feel of the eyeshadow itself. It was harder to apply it evenly, and I felt like using a flat, synthetic brush was best (fingertip actually seemed to move it around too much). It wore well eight hours on me and had slight fallout over time.

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.

Gnarly is a medium, muted peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, lightly powdery in the pan, and blendable, which made it easy to work with. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer and stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Sequoia

Sequoia is a bright pop of tangerine orange with strong, warm yellow undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top. The consistency was soft, a little powdery in the pan, but it applied evenly and wasn’t prone to sheering out too readily. This shade lasted well for eight hours on my skin before showing signs of fading.

Gold Rush

Gold Rush is a muted, coppery brown with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage in a single pass, which adhered evenly and blended out nicely on my skin. The consistency was soft without being too powdery nor was it too firmly pressed in the pan. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before creasing faintly.

HWY 1

HWY 1 is a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle over a matte finish. The texture was soft, a little powdery in the pan, but very smooth and almost velvety as it was denser than most mattes by the brand. It had rich pigmentation that went on evenly and blended out with little effort. It stayed on for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Laguna is a light-medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had intense color payoff that adhered well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of color.

El Capitan

El Capitan is a mix of various depths of gold micro-glitter. The glitter was finer than in most of the Pressed Glitters I’ve tried thus far, though it is still glitter and as a result, it is listed as “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.” The texture had slip to it, and the product adhered well to bare skin with minimal fallout both during application and later on during wear–there was just a touch of migration/fallout after eight hours of wear.

Surfrider

Surfrider is a light-medium, orange-brown base with flecks of gold sparkle on top. The texture was firmer, stiffer in the pan, and it felt thinner as I applied it, which made it harder to pick up with a brush and then diffuse onto my skin. It had good pigmentation, but it was the texture that made it harder to work with. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading, but there was light fallout over time.

Cahuenga is a rich, coppery bronze with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had an incredibly smooth, lightly creamy consistency that felt almost emollient to the touch. It had rich pigmentation that adhered well to bare skin and blended out easily on my lid. It lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed signs of fading.

Mission

Mission is a medium-dark taupe with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque in one pass, though the texture was a bit firmer and stiffer compared to other shades in the palette. I didn’t have too much trouble picking it up as a heavier handed approach did the trick, and I didn’t have any issues with blending out the edges on my lid. It wore well eight hours before fading noticeably on my skin.

I am a bit disappointed in this palette, not only did Colour Pop completely ruin the beautiful gold shade (whatever happened to the lovely Snakebite formula?), but they also missed an opportunity to show that their state is not just about sun, sand and desert…..some beautiful blue shimmers could have represented the sea, stunning greens and dark browns for the trees…..a really vibrant palette that would have appealed to a wider cross section of beauty lovers.

I agree, this looks like half the Colourpop palettes already released. Also, you are right. If this limited shade range is all they could come up with for a state as diverse as California I wonder what “Arizona” would look like? 😉

You’ve both put into words exactly what I thought when I saw this palette. It’s pretty, but I feel like they missed so much they could’ve represented of our state in this one!

The look you got from this makes me think it’s a gem when it comes to being a warmer neutral palette! Should I or shouldn’t I, that is the question? Along with the conundrum of PMG vs CP! Yeah, I’m still debating within myself, lol. 😅

No, ColourPop, no! Don’t turn into Tarte’s warmer-toned cousin! This palette is almost indistinguishable from so many they’ve released the last however many months… like it’s a neural network idea of a CP palette. “Here, I fed this awesome computer ColourPop’s 40 latest palettes and heeere’s what it came up with!”

Thank you so much for doing this review – it’s so detailed and incredibly helpful! I’m just a little bit confused about their statement ‘not intended for use in the immediate eye area’… Would you possibly know why the product isn’t suitable, and if we’re not supposed to put in our eye area, how are we supposed to use it??

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!
