Exes and Oh's

Colour Pop Exes and Oh’s 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($16.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, Ulta-exclusive palette that features muted tones of red- and orange-toned neutrals in both shimmery and matte finish. For anyone who likes to wear these types of tones, it should be an easy palette to work with as the majority of the eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. A few of the mattes needed to be built up slightly for full coverage, while shimmers like Know Better just work best as layering shades or washes rather than standalone shades (there was no description from the brand that implied it was supposed to be sheer, though).

Know Better

Know Better is a pale pink with warmer undertones and flecks of silvery pink and gold sparkle. It had more of a transparent base, so it worked better as a layering shade patted on top of another eyeshadow for some shimmer or to add glitz to the inner tearduct. It could also be applied all-over the lid as a wash of sparkle. The texture was smooth, lightly emollient but blendable and had very little fallout when applied to my skin, though there was a bit of diffusion when I blended out the edge. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours with light 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.

Stay Golden

Stay Golden is a brighter, muted red with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that needed half of a layer built on top for full pigmentation. The texture was soft, a little drier and dustier in the pan, but it applied evenly and blended out well, though I had slight fallout during application. It lasted well for eight and a half hours and left a faint stain after removal.

Hooky

Hooky is a medium brown with muted, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation that adhered evenly to bare skin in a single layer. The texture was soft, blendable, and had enough substance to work well without a primer as it didn’t sheer out too readily but still blended along the edge. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

20 Something

20 Something is a bright, peachy gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It was more loosely-pressed in the pan, so there was some fallout during application, but the overall consistency was creamier and more silicone-heavy, which helped most of the sparkles to adhere to my lid. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours with light fallout over time.

Issues #2

Issues #2 is a light-medium, yellowed peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was soft with moderate powderiness, so there was some excess product kicked up in the pan and a touch of fallout during application if I wasn’t careful. This shade lasted well for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Reckless

Reckless is a deep plum with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that needed less than half of a layer built on top for full coverage. The consistency was soft, velvety, and substantial, but it remained blendable along the edge with a touch of fallout during application. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours before I noticed some fading.

Rookie

Rookie is a bright, medium copper with stronger, warm undertones and flecks of multi-colored shimmer and sparkle throughout. It had a cream-like feel–very smooth and emollient–but it applied with excellent pigmentation in a single layer and all of that sparkle adhered well and didn’t give me trouble with fallout during application. This shade stayed on well for nine hours with a smidgen of fallout over time.

Fortunate

Fortunate is a light-medium, reddish-brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. There was barely-there shimmer throughout but not enough to meaningfully change the finish from visually matte on the eye. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, velvety consistency that was blendable and not prone to sheering out on my skin. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Smitten

Smitten is a medium red with subtle, warmer undertones and cooler pink shimmer that gave it a pearly sheen. It had good color coverage, but it had a more silicone-heavy–but very thin–feel that made it harder to apply without the product moving around, so the overall application was uneven on my skin. It wore decently for seven and a half hours before creasing on me.

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!

Pretty but done to death. Seems like ColourPop is releasing so many e/s palettes and they are just reshuffling the shades with minor variations.

On a totally unrelated note, Christine, for the past couple of days it seems like the posting dates have all been out of whack. I know that when you post certain things and then either get around to reviewing or whatever, you will bring the comments forward to the new post. This has been weird because I know these are new posts but they are saying different dates for posting, even when I know they are being posted today? So weird. Maybe it is my computer.

We are showing the last updated date now! 🙂 The posts are still shown in the order of published date, but this now lets me update a post without having to adjust the published date!

I’ll tell you what; if I didn’t already have several of the shades already, plus dupes, I would be all over this like white on rice! The only shade I winced at in disapproval was that first pinky glittery one, because it’s not fitting the color scheme and the quality doesn’t look too hot. Otherwise, this is a really nice one!

I don’t have much from Colour Pop. I’ve been wanting to get a palette of theirs but I absolutely abhor the pressed glitters. I was so excited that this one didn’t have any pressed glitters so I bought it hoping that would encourage more palettes without glitters. I’m a sucker for this color story, the packaging is cute and is easy to work with. What’s not to love?

I think there must be a robot in charge of the eye palette division of Colour Pop because they keep churning out the same kinds of palettes.
On a more positive note, this one is of good quality and there doesn’t seem to be the same issue of non eye safe shades. Thank you for the review Christine.

I’m glad I resisted an impulse buy on this one last week! Smitten and Stay Golden are really pretty colors. It’s too bad they don’t get better scores.

Colourpop is one of the rare brands that could release an eyeshadow palette every month and I’d be excited for it (vs ABH, for instance – “please make it stop”).
