Fame

Colour Pop Fame 16-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($22.00 for 0.56 oz.) is a new neutral palette that’s supposed to be filled with cool-toned shades but would argue that it’s more of a neutral-to-cool leaning palette than overtly cool-toned. There were several shades that read warm-toned to me whether I looked at them in the pan, swatched, or applied (like Extravaganza, Delirium, Dazzle, Privy). There were a few that appeared cooler applied than they did in the pan (Clubhouse in particular), too.

I found the shimmers did not come together as well on bare skin or over primer with most needing a dampened brush to come together, adhere evenly to the lid, and have more opaque coverage without having to build up or pack on. The latter is where I felt like the palette came short for me–it’s one thing to use a dampened brush to amplify the shine or deepen a color here and there, but it was unexpected to feel like it didn’t work that well without a wetting agent.

On a subjective note, I felt like the palette could have skipped a couple of the light shades and gone for a mid-tone and deeper shimmer shade and instead of having such a deep shade (Lifestyle) two mid-tone to dark hues.

Colour Pop Center Stage Pressed Powder Shadow

Center Stage

Center Stage is a soft beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff with a soft, smooth texture that was dense and applied better with a fluffy brush than a dense one. The eyeshadow stayed on 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” 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.

Extravaganza

Extravaganza is a soft, peachy-pink with a metallic finish. The color payoff was semi-opaque and buildable, but it had a softer press that made it the type of texture (and finish) that applied better with fingertips or with a dampened brush for maximum coverage and more even application with less work. On its own, it lasted for eight hours before fading on me.

Show Boat

Show Boat is a soft pink with warm undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was soft and more loosely pressed, so I found that it had a tendency to sheer out when applied to my lid, even over primer. It was better to apply it with a dampened brush to minimize fallout, improve evenness, and maximize pigmentation. It stayed on well for seven hours on me.

Delirium

Delirium is a soft, muted peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was good and buildable to opaque coverage with a second layer. It had a soft, smooth consistency that was denser but not chalky or too powdery to work with. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

The Most

The Most is a light-medium, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The color coverage was semi-opaque, and if I used it with a dampened brush, opaque in a single layer. The texture was more loosely pressed in the pan, which resulted in some fallout when I worked with it dry and on bare skin; with primer, it was less prone to fallout but wasn’t perfect. It stayed on my lid well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Razzle is a soft, rosy brown with neutral undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was good, and it was buildable to opaque coverage with less than half of a layer on top. The consistency was soft without being powdery, and it was easy to blend out the eyeshadow on my lid. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Dazzle

Dazzle is a medium, rosy taupe with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer that applied well to bare skin. The texture was soft, slightly looser in press, but it was still easy to pickup with a brush and apply to bare skin without need of a primer or applying it damp, though the latter certainly amplified the shine. It lasted nicely for eight hours on me.

Debutante

Debutante is pale taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had sheer coverage as it was drier and more loosely pressed, so it just didn’t hold together well on my drier skin. The eyeshadow needed to be used with a dampened brush in order to come together and apply evenly with more opaque coverage. The color stayed on well for seven hours on me and had some fallout during application.

Posh

Posh is a medium, rosy plum with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It was richly pigmented with a soft, finely-milled texture that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. I recommend using a flat brush with this shade and pressing onto the lid and then blending, otherwise there can be a little fallout. It wore well for eight hours before it started to fade on me.

Blasé

Blasé is a dark, charcoal gray with neutral-to-cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. The consistency was drier and thinner with a firmer feel compared to most of the brand’s eyeshadows, matte or otherwise. It had more faded, washed-out pigmentation when applied to my skin that was medium to semi-opaque in coverage but not very true-to-pan. It was somewhat buildable but harder to diffuse and blend out. The color stayed on well for seven 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.

Piece of Me

Piece of Me is a dusty, m edium purple with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had a drier, more loosely pressed texture that was prone to sheering out on my skin. Even over primer, it was still a bit challenging to avoid getting it into areas I hadn’t intended. The easiest way to work with this shade was to use it with a dampened brush. The eyeshadow lasted for seven hours before fading on me.

Lifestyle

Lifestyle is a deep brown with cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque, while the consistency was smooth, dense but not too thick or powdery in the pan. It seemed a bit too pigmented, particularly compared to the composition of the palette, and so I felt like I needed to use quite a bit less than “normal” to avoid over-doing it and making it harder to blend out. It wore nicely for eight hours before starting to fade on me.

Definitely not a palette I need as I can dupe most of these (and I think most people who have been “collectors” of makeup could say the same). Quality of the two failed shadows aside, this would be a good palette for someone with light to medium skin and very little makeup who wanted to have a variety of neutral-cool toned naked basics with a couple smoky eye shades to round things out. A shame about the duds.

Well, I just ordered it. I was looking for dupes for a couple of shades and realized that I might as well just spend the $22 to get the whole palette. The shades that performed poorly are not shades that matter that much to me. I lot of people complain about all the pale shades. On me, though, pale shades always look darker on me than they seem in the pan. This would make a perfect travel palette for me, so I hope I can get some good looks out of it. Fingers crossed.

“ColourPop is doing a cool-toned palette!” “OMG YAAAAAY!” Except I would 100% not categorize this as “cool-toned.” I was hoping for greys and grey-taupes and blues, and maybe some desaturated hues with cool/silvery sparkle and sheen — instead, it’s YET ANOTHER collection of predominantly pinks and nudes, except this time it doesn’t lean quite so orangey-gold, and the overall quality is apparently a good bit below the usual ColourPop standard. Only four of these shades looked interesting/usable for me … and three of the four have a C, D, or F rating. 🙁

:(((((((

I find the last two rows of this palette incredibly appealing. I can do without the first two, which seem repetitive. I wonder if they have these shades available individually. They would make a nice quad.

This is exactly what I thought! If the bottom 2 rows were a separate palette that was $14-16 I would buy it. I don’t need 8 neutral pinks in my “cool-toned” palette.

I agree with a lot of what you’re saying here, Christine. I’ve been trying this palette out since Friday and I’ve been loving it, with the exception of Stardom, which blends out way too red on me. I found Debutante to apply beautifully to my lid with my finger, so your F rating surprised me. I do wish the palette contained a cooler counterpart to Razzle, something along the lines of UD’s Cover or the Naked single shade. Overall I appreciate that I can get warm, neutral, and cool looks out of this, and that ColourPop didn’t think “cooler palette” and veer too SMOKY with it.

I second soitgoes on Debutante. I am surprised that you give a “F” rating because mine is great as well. Also, when I looked at your swatches before I got mine, I did not give high hope on Piece of Me but mine is way better than your swatch. The worse colour in the palette it Blasé, and I could not agree more with your rating on that. Christine, I know you are incredibly busy but do you want to try Debutante again, may be with a different application method / brush? Your rating has a big influence on the readers and I hope you give this palette a fair chance.

Overall, I think the palette should be better than “B” rating (re-considering the F rating on Debutante) and I disagree that this is a worse quality palette than their other release as commented by others – I think there is a bit of bias there. Colour choice is highly subjective and if you don’t like the colour scheme, don’t get this. I got this palette because I have too many warm tone shadows and this is what I need to complement my collection. It is frustrating to see people criticizing the quality of this palette when they don’t even have their hands on it.

Hi Mimi,

I test products based on what it is – e.g. an powder eyeshadow that doesn’t say it has to be used wet will be used dry. I mentioned that it could be used with a dampened brush to apply better (which was what I felt did the most to improve the application overall), but that’s not part of the claims, therefore that’s a helpful tip for those reading the review but doesn’t improve the rating. I always try products in different ways when they do not perform as claimed to try and find useful insights to pass onto readers, so I already used it with different brushes, as well as fingertips, with and without primer, and dry as well as dampened – but again, using fingertips, using it wet, or with primer – none of those things would change the rating.

Here’s what ColourPop says about their eyeshadows: “Highly pigmented shadow that applies evenly and feels ultra-velvety and silky. This long wearing formula contains a unique combination of softer powders which adheres easily to the eyes, gives a soft focus effect, and blends smoothly and evenly. Tips: Apply with your favorite shadow brushes. Flat and firmer brushes will give the most color payoff. Fluffier brushes are great for blending. Use a small angled brush to line the eyes.”

I’m glad yours is performing well for you! My experience is just that, mine, and I tested it exactly as I have ColourPop’s other eyeshadow palettes and their numerous single eyeshadows, which is fair to a T. I can’t reconsider my rating based on your experience, but I always welcome readers to leave comments or even write a review on the palette itself to share their experiences (https://www.temptalia.com/product/colour-pop-16-pan-eyeshadow-palette/fame/)! 🙂

Thank you Christine. I appreciate that you took the time to write back and being firm on your rating based on your own standards. I respect that. We are free to disagree and formulate our own opinion based on our experience.

Hi Mimi!

Wow – fingers crossed for this to be a case of batch inconsistency! I just received mine yesterday and haven’t used it yet. I feel like this is the worst rated palette they’ve had, based on your reviews!

I bought it even though it didn’t get good reviews. It’s just so pretty to look at but not so much to use. This cool-toned girl is disappointed.

Such a weird palette. I mean, ColourPop didn’t explain it at all. Was it meant to be for the movie/musical Fame? Or just be a bland neutral palette? It’s so confusing. It’s such a dud though. Like, they never really do duds, but this definitely was.

Very disappointing on several levels – firstly, as you have said Christine, way, way too many pale shades – so pale that it is difficult to work out the colour. No one really uses that many pale shades that all pretty similar to each other.
Secondly the pigmentation is generally poor – very wishy washy shades and even the shimmers had lots of problems.
Thirdly, as a cool toned palette – well, it isn’t
And last, despite the size of the palette, there are really only a few colours you can work with.
Thank you for the review Christine.

If this palette graded higher, I would certainly snap it up. I like the addition of a grey and cool brown which I tend to use with a push brush on upper lash line in lieu of liquid liner. Agree with other comments regarding last two rows. I can dupe this, but it would have made for a perfect weekend/travel palette. Sadly not up to ColourPop’s usual standard.

So frustrating. I bought this one a few days ago with the excitement of it being truly cool toned neutrals. Hopefully the few cool toned Mattes in Fame will work with my neutral to cool shades in my Viseart Paris Nudes palette. It’s the only other palette I own and even though it’s warmer toned than I like, that palette is my HG.

Not up to ColourPop snuff. Probably their worst palette quality wise out of all the larger pre-made palettes they’ve churned out. I also see it as more of a neutral-cool leaning palette. Not purely cool exactly.

WT? ‘Privy’ is the old fashioned word for toilet!! With a thesaurus full of words, surely they could have done better?
BTW, living in UK I ordered some things over $50 to be sent, the service was awful; they didnt bother to send my stuff until I started emailing them to ask where it was. The whole nightmare took 4 weeks. Never again!

Thank you so much for this review and to all your readers for their comments! It is a (sad) no from me. I was so excited when I first read about it but have been dithering ever since. I LOVE their Perception Palette but this one? As you show the quality isn’t there and there are just too many very similar pale colours. It is almost as if Colourpop think ‘cool’ and ‘pale’ are the same thing?! Oh well I’ll save my money for the new lip glosses they are releasing!

I like the color selection, though I agree it’s not at all completely cool-toned. The quality sure isn’t up to CP’s usual standard.

I have been waiting patiently for your review Christine and I appreciate your honesty.
I have literally put this into cart three times but I knew I had to wait for your thoughts.
I have similar colouring to you (nc20/25) and was a bit nervous about getting a cool tone palette.

This is definitely not a palette I needed, but I was still hoping it would perform better. I agree with your statement that they could have skipped some of the lighter shades and gone with some more mid tone shades as I think that would have balanced it out a bit. The first two rows just kind of blend together too much. My mother has started showing more interest in makeup and I was looking into getting this palette for her as she does not own much at all (besides a older too faced holiday palette I gave her) and I agree that this could be a great starter for someone like her.

I don’t need this palette at all, and although I wouldn’t say this is a true cool toned palette, every color is pretty neutral and wearable (IMO). I own several Colourpop palettes, and while I love them, there are always a solid 3-4 shades in a lot of the palettes that I likely won’t touch or at the very least will never hit pan on. But this palette, though is super light, is one of the first I feel like I could see myself actively using every single color. My undertones are cool and I’m soooo tired of the warm palette trend so I may pick this up to use for everyday work looks. Still on the fence though!
