BPM

Colour Pop BPM Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with warm, orange undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that wasn’t too firmly nor too softly pressed in the pan, which made it easy to pickup, to apply, and to blend out. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

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.

Hop On

Colour Pop Hop On Pressed Pigment ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, medium red with subtle warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly to the skin. The texture was slightly thinner and drier to the touch, but I didn’t have any issues diffusing or blending out the color in practice. Worth noting, it is a Pressed Pigment and therefore comes with the warning that it is not intended for use on the eye area. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before there was slight fading.

Formula Overview

-

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.

Bratty

Colour Pop Bratty Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, tangerine orange with warm, orange and yellow undertones and a mostly matte finish. It seemed matte in the pan, but I swear I detected very, very faint pearl strewn through it when I swatched it. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented with a velvety smooth texture that wasn’t too powdery and had enough substance to it that it did not sheer away too readily. It lasted for eight hours on me.

Chauffeur

Colour Pop Chauffeur Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, light-medium tangerine orange with warm, yellow undertones and a golden, metallic sheen. The color payoff was opaque, while the eyeshadow had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was easy to work with on the lid. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours.

Comeback Kid

Colour Pop Comeback Kid Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-pink with warm undertones and a golden sheen. The eyeshadow had good pigmentation, though not quite opaque in one layer. The consistency was smooth, soft and a little more loosely-pressed in the pan compared to other shades. It applied best by patting and pressing on as a result. The color wore well for eight hours on me.

Lay Low

Colour Pop Lay Low Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium coral with strong, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. There was very fine (and only a faint amount) shimmer that seemed to improve the texture and blendability while still leaving behind a mostly matte finish to the eye in person. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, blended out nicely, and stayed on for eight hours before it started to fade on me.

Oh boy, Hop On is one that I had my eye on based on the instagram pics and it’s awfully pretty but IMO Chauffeur is the star of this particular group.

Bratty, Lay Low and Comeback Kid all interest me! Not entirely sure I need any more orangey eyeshadow, though. But, maybe Comeback Kid would still fill a gap? Idk?
Hop On is absolutely stunning! Looks like a fiery red setting sun in summer!

So many pretty colors…if I ever learn how to do colorful eye looks, I’ll check these out lol

Regarding Hop On, how is it supposed to be used if it’s not intended for the eye area?

I ordered BPM, Chauffeur and Lay Low, and I’m happy to see that they all rate good!

Now I’m waiting to see if Rascal and Formation do as well 🙂

I think Lay Low will pair really nicely with Come and Get it that I already have, to make a lovely peachy-gold look for spring.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
