So Jaded

ColourPop So Jaded Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was slightly loose, so it had some excess product that kicked up in the pan and applied better with a flatter brush, patted on, than swept on to minimize fallout and maximize coverage. It had opaque pigmentation that lasted for eight hours before fading slightly on me.

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.

Imperial

ColourPop Imperial Pressed Pigment ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark, rusty orange with warm,r ed undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff with a soft, powdery consistency that had some excess get kicked up in the pan, so I would recommend using a lighter hand and building up coverage to minimize fallout and messiness. The color wore well for eight hours on me.

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." The way the Pressed Pigments differ is that they're not intended for usage on the immediate eye area.

The majority of the shades are semi-opaque to opaque in coverage, blend out fairly well, and can sometimes be a bit drier/more powdery compared to typical matte shades. They often wear eight to nine hours on me before fading, but many shades in the Pressed Pigment family leave some staining behind.

NOTICE: All products categorized under "Pigment" carry a warning in the US that the product is "not intended for use in the immediate eye area." Brands in the US typically market these products as "Pigments" (instead of "Eyeshadow"), and there is often a warning on the back of packaging or the label. The product includes color additives that are not approved for usage on the eyes per the FDA. Some color additives in "Pigments" have no usage restrictions in the EU, per CosIng, and can be used on the eyes. We recommend checking ingredients to confirm current safety assessment/restrictions: FDA/CosIng.

Crown Jewel

ColourPop Crown Jewel Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a dark purple with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that was blendable and easy to use. The color wore well for eight hours on me.

Hung Up

ColourPop Hung Up Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a dark, plummy purple with warm, brown undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation with a slightly drier consistency that could have been a little more blendable along the edges, but it wasn’t a true struggle and was quite workable. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Paper Crane

ColourPop Paper Crane Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was moderately dense and almost cream-like to the touch, so it applied best with flat, firm, synthetic brushes over fluffy ones, as fluffier brushes did not pick up product as well nor did they apply the color as evenly. It had rich color payoff that wore well for nine hours on me.

Roundhouse

ColourPop Roundhouse Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. There were nearly imperceptible pearl strewn through the powder, but it looked more like a matte eyeshadow on the lid. It had intense pigmentation in a single layer with a smooth, velvety consistency that wasn’t too thin or too dense. The eyeshadow blended out without too much work along the edges and stayed on well for eight hours.

Thank you for this! I just ordered the So Jaded because is is very similar to my favorite eyeshadow “Off The Rack” by Lancome color design eyeshadow.

Yes! I have a bunch of these fall shadows in my cart. I decided to make my own palette as opposed to the two that just came out that are very meh to me. The purples look good!
