Charm School

ColourPop Charm School 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($14.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes a mix of warmer tones with three cooler, grayish shades. There was a good mix of depth and finish, as the palette contained two mattes, three sparkle mattes, and four shimmer shades.

One of the sparkle mattes had enough sparkles to result in noticeable fallout, but the other three were the kind of sparkles that you could see in the pan but not so much in practice. Three of the shimmers could have been better applied dry, so I’d say the shimmer formula is more ideal for someone who tends to apply their shimmer eyeshadows with a fingertip or a dampened brush to begin with.

Twiggy

Twiggy is a light and bright, peachy beige with warm undertones and a sparkly sheen. It ended up reading more like a warmer white than true peach on me, since it was so bright. The texture was smooth, lightly emollient to the touch, and picked up readily with a dry brush but had light fallout using this application method. It had mostly opaque color coverage that wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

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.

I'm Sure

I’m Sure is a light-medium brown with warmer undertones and a matte finish. I noticed this shade was more prone to darkening a bit from whatever natural oils/tackiness existed on my skin–and I do wipe down my arm prior to beginning to swatch to minimize this already!–so an eyeshadow primer would likely be ideal to ensure evenness in color depth.

The eyeshadow itself was pigmented, blendable, and easy enough to work with, though the texture was lightly powdery. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Heart Tag

Heart Tag is a soft, yellowy gold with strong, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered well to bare skin as the texture was smooth, dense without being too thick, and easy to work with. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Romper

Romper is a light-medium, orange-brown with strong, warm undertones and barely-there micro-sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkles were both fine and sparse enough that they didn’t really translate visibly onto the lid, which meant that there wasn’t much in the way of fallout over the eight hours it wore for. The eyeshadow was pigmented, blendable, and smooth to the touch, though somewhat powdery in the pan.

On Time

On Time is a rich, golden orange with warm undertones and a metallic finish. The eyeshadow was more loosely-pressed into the pan, so while quite pigmented, it was also more prone to powderiness and fallout when used dry with a brush. I’d recommend using a fingertip to pat it into place or a dampened brush; I preferred the latter as it also helped it lay more evenly and smoothly (physically, as in texture) on my skin. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

Grace

Grace is a medium-dark brown with warm, golden undertones and gold micro-sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkles seemed to, largely, disappear when applied to bare skin, so there wasn’t that much fallout since, presumably, they got trapped in my brush or disappeared into the air when picked up.

The texture was moderately powdery, though soft, finely-milled, and blendable, but you’ll want to use a light hand to avoid excess fallout. It had rich color payoff that wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Jingle Jangle

Jingle Jangle is a light-medium pewter with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted finish. The consistency was drier and more powdery, which resulted in a sheerer, less even application of product that had some fallout to deal with. This shade was more workable when applied with a dampened brush as this helped everything come together more evenly and yield higher opacity (but also just better application without the fallout!). It lasted decently for seven hours before fading a bit.

And Co

And Co is a dark charcoal gray with warmer undertones and flecks of gold and silver micro-sparkle over a more matte finish. It was packed with the micro-sparkle more so than other “sparkle mattes” from the brand, so they definitely translated when applied, though they did not adhere that well and resulted in fallout both during blending as well as throughout wear–I did not notice any irritation, personally, so there was some upside.

It had opaque color coverage with a soft, somewhat powdery texture, though it retained its opacity when blended out. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading, but there was moderate fallout from the sparkles.

Oh my gosh, I forgot how fast ColourPop churns out new releases. I was just looking at the Quartz palette and I think they have released about ten since then, LOL! Not feeling this one as it has a lot of shades that are similar to ones I already have. I am sticking with the Quartz palette, I think.

I don’t think CP could decide whether this palette was going to be warm toned or cool toned – the shades are just polar opposites of one another. And all those mid tone caramel brown shades don’t seem to work. Jingle Jangle, which could have been the hero shade of the palette, was pathetic.
