Two Birds

Colour Pop Two Birds Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark gold with warm, orange undertones and a metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly to the lid. The texture was soft, moderately dense, and slightly cream-like, which helped it blend out easily. This shade wore well for eight and a half 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” 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.

Fortune Cookie

Colour Pop Fortune Cookie Pressed Pigment ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, medium pinky-red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer with a slightly drier texture that wasn’t too powdery nor was it prone to sheering out, but it just had a dryness present to it, possibly due to the thinner consistency. The color wore well for eight and a half hours and stained my lids slightly (and it is technically not an eyeshadow).

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.

Facet

Colour Pop Facet Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep plum with warm undertones and a matte finnish. It had good color payoff in a single layer, which was buildable to opaque coverage with a second layer. The eyeshadow was soft, slightly dusty in the pan, but it did not appear to have any ill-effects on the application, as it applied evenly and blended out nicely. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.
