Crush

ColourPop Crush 5-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, warm-toned palette that includes three matte shades, one sparkly matte shade, and one shimmery shade. The pigmentation was good throughout the palette, and the products were blendable and easy enough to work with, but there was fallout from minor to more moderate, depending on the shade.

Bow

Bow is a pale yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff with a soft, moderately powdery texture, so there was some flyaway powder and light fallout when blended out on my skin. It lasted decently for seven hours before fading a bit.

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.

Luv

Luv is a brighter, light orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was somewhat powdery, which was its biggest downside, which resulted in fading after seven and a half hours of wear. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, though.

Arrow

Arrow is a medium-dark copper with moderate, warmer (more brown) undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had rich color coverage with a fairly smooth consistency that had a touch of fallout during application when applied dry and blended out, so I’d recommend using it with more of a pressing/patting motion and/or with a dampened brush if fallout is a concern. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Struck

Struck is a brighter, deeper orange with moderate, warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkles dispersed too readily, so they were hard to keep in place during application, blending, and throughout wear, which resulted in fallout and imprecision. The texture was somewhat powdery, though blendable, and the eyeshadow was richly pigmented. The color itself lasted for closer to eight hours before fading noticeably.

Cherub

Cherub is a light-medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, velvety texture that was blendable without being too powdery or too firmly-pressed into the pan. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

This little 5 pan is better quality than the others in the series, but it is such a popular set of shades that there are probably hundreds of dupes for all of the colours.
