Fly Away

ColourPop Fly Away 5-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) includes two shimmery eyeshadows with three matte eyeshadows. It was green-leaning, though supported by two more neutral tones. All five shades were semi-opaque to opaque in coverage, blendable, and wore for eight hours on me. They performed consistently with ColourPop’s eyeshadow formula.

This palette is one of five in a holiday vault, though ColourPop said they would be available individually when I asked, but they have not appeared individually on the site. It’s not realistic for me to review it as a set (takes much longer, but I also started testing them across sets already, and the system is better setup for a palette, not five palettes within a set, for readability!), so I decided to review them individually still.

Twirl

Twirl is a light green with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The eyeshadow had a soft, more loosely-pressed texture with a touch of dryness, so I had to take care to avoid fallout. It had opaque color coverage that wore well for eight hours 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.

Hover

Hover is a light, peachy brown with muted, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a soft, lightly powdery consistency that had a touch of fallout if I wasn’t careful, but it was blendable and delivered full color payoff in one layer. It lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Astral Lands

Astral Lands is a deep olive green with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque color coverage paired with a soft, smooth consistency that was almost cream-like as it was dense but not too thick or too firmly-pressed into the pan. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

Worldly

Worldly is a muted, medium olive green with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque, buildable color payoff that applied evenly and diffused well along the edges. The texture was smooth and finely-milled with minimal powderiness, so it was easy to work with. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Aviator

Aviator is a deep taupe-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top. The consistency was smooth to the touch, finely-milled, and blendable with light powderiness that was confined to the pan. It lasted well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
