Now and Zen

ColourPop Now and Zen Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, white gold with a green-to-gold duochrome shift. The texture was smooth, slightly cream-like, and incredibly easy to blend out on the lid. It had rich color payoff in a single layer that stayed on 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.

Tea Garden

ColourPop Tea Garden Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-copper with green-to-gold shifting shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a loosely-pressed consistency that did not apply as evenly with a dry brush as expected. The texture was a bit thicker and needed the aid of a dampened brush to apply smoothly and have greater coverage. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Glass Bull

ColourPop Glass Bull Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium, pinky-plum base with blue-to-teal shifting shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to the lid with a highly metallic sheen. The eyeshadow had a moderately dense consistency that applied best with fingertips or a dampened brush for more opaque coverage. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Snake Eyes

ColourPop Snake Eyes Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium brown with warm, rosy undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich pigmentation with a fairly soft, smooth, and blendable texture that was just a smidgen on the looser side. The color lasted well for eight hours on me.

Dragonfly

ColourPop Dragonfly Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark taupe-brown with warm, rosy undertones and a frosted sheen. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, while the consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too softly or too firmly pressed in the pan. The color started to fade on me after eight hours of wear.

Let's Do It

ColourPop Let’s Do It Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark black with neutral-to-cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. There were faint micro-shimmers strewn throughout the powder, but it looked like a matte eyeshadow in practice. The texture was slightly drier and could have been m ore blendable, though the color coverage was very nearly opaque. The eyeshadow stayed on well for eight hours on me.

I love Now and Zen!!! It reminds a more intense version of my favorite LE NARS highlighter (Watch Me from the Unfiltered I palette). I’ve been using it nonstop since I got it a few days ago 🙂

I’ve got 3 out of this set: Now And Zen, Glass Bull and Dragonfly. Definitely love all three, but have used Now And Zen the most frequently. Makes for a gorgeous inner corner highlight or even patting a bit on center lid for a mild halo effect. Glass Bull turns my eyes turquoise! If you have blue-green or green-blue eyes, you NEED this one.

My Black friday orders are tricklibg in. So far I am obsessed. After many years of cringing at unelegant Uggs I ordered a pair and am kn love. Warm and cute, but work appropriate! Also, ordered Jouer Metallic lippies in Snapdragon and Pamplemousee and they are transfer free! And look gorgeous! The smell is sickening but I can stand it. I have been eyeing Colorpop Yiin to my Yang and a foursome of SSSs, but had to keep my order under 22 euros. So I ended up ordering just Glass Bull, Snake eyes and Tea garden pressed e/s as well as Mooning and Smash SSSs, since I have dupes for other shades in these bundles.
Can‘t wait to see them in person!
