On the Rise

Colour Pop On the Rise Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium purple with warm undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. The pigmentation was nearly opaque, while the texture was just a smidgen on the dry side, but otherwise, it was easy to work with and remained blendable on my lid. This shade wore well for seven and a half 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.

Prowlin'

Colour Pop Prowlin’ Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, pale lavender with warm, pink undertones and a golden, metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, almost cream-like texture that was blendable and easy to apply to bare skin. The eyeshadow stayed on well for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Two to Mango

Colour Pop Two to Mango Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a light-medium lavender with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly over bare skin, though a primer definitely gave it that extra oomph. The texture was soft, velvety, and not too thin or too firmly pressed in the pan, so it blended out nicely but did not sheer out immediately. It wore well for just over eight hours on me.

Howlin'

Colour Pop Howlin’ Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a light-medium lavender with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty texture that was fairly blendable and didn’t sheer out too readily when applied. I would recommend patting it over primer, which helped improve the payoff. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Colour Pop Feathered Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium brown with warm, reddish undertones and flecks of sparkle over a matte finish. The pigmentation was fantastic, while the consistency was soft, smooth, and velvety without being too powdery or too firmly pressed in the pan.

Colour Pop Burner Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly on my lid.

Really pretty soft lavender and purple shades. The quality is good also. I love lavender/purple and keep buying them regardless of how many I have. Just can’t seem to say “no” to those shades. I really like several of the shades in this ColourPop release.

Prowlin’ and Two To Mango are the ones I am going to get. I have a weakness for light lavenders like these! Loving Burner and also On The Rise, but those are duped in my stash already.
