Garden Variety

Colour Pop Garden Variety 15-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow ($20.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a new, limited edition 15-pan palette that includes six matte eyeshadows, seven shimmery eyeshadows, and two sparkly “mattes.” It was a decent palette, and the issues it had were mostly around powderiness, fallout, and some shades were sheerer than marketed.

It wasn’t difficult to work with, though, so for someone who doesn’t mind some fallout during application, it likely won’t be a big disappointment. There was a good variety in depth and finish, so it seemed like a versatile color story, which was nice to see.

Deserted

Deserted is a bright, very light beige with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a denser, thicker consistency, which helped to minimize fallout and gave it better coverage (without sheering out) when applied to bare skin. It stayed on well for eight hours before showing signs of wear.

FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and characteristics (like scent).

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.

Herbivore

Herbivore is a soft yellow with strong, warm orange undertones and fine sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkle didn’t translate too much during application. The texture was moderately powdery and prone to sheering out during application, so it didn’t build up beyond its medium-level coverage. It wore decently for seven hours before fading visibly.

Best Buds

Best Buds is a light, springy chartreuse green with warm, golden undertones and a sparkling finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer, which could be intensified to opaque coverage if applied with a dampened brush or a fingertip.

The texture was soft and more loosely-pressed, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand to pick up product to avoid potential for fallout. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably on me.

Don't Leaf

Don’t Leaf is a light orange with strong, warm undertones and flecks of pink and gold sparkle. It had semi-opaque color payoff in a single layer, which wasn’t buildable. The texture was lightly emollient, almost wet to the touch, and felt like a Super Shock Shadow to me, so while it felt creamier in the pan, it felt more powder-like as soon as it came into contact with my skin. It lasted nicely for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and characteristics (like scent).

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.07 oz. - $85.71 Per Ounce

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow is a cream-based formula that comes in a multitude of shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip to them (they have a “wetter” feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. Almost every shade I’ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later). The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented.

From feedback I’ve seen from readers, many love them but some don’t like them at all. They aren’t a traditional cream eyeshadow, as they are denser (more sponge-like), and they apply best with flat, firm, synthetic brushes (I like the MAC 242 and 249) for me. The brand recommends using fingers for the most pigmented application, but I’ve only felt that fingers were necessary on a few shades (usually the super glittery ones).

The more matte shades can be on the drier side and vary from medium to opaque in coverage, though they're often buildable.  They can be a little hard to diffuse the edges of, though some are lovely to work with.

The more glittery shades have been the weakest to me, as they can be sheerer or harder to apply.  Sometimes, they are more pigmented and work like the other finishes in the formula, but often, they are sheerer and only function well patted on top of more pigmented eyeshadows to add glitter.  They do, however, tend to have little fallout over time with the occasional shade having a more moderate amount of fallout (but still less fallout than most powder eyeshadows with glitter).

Over the Bloom

Over the Bloom is a brighter, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle over a matte finish. There was more of a smattering of sparkle, so it didn’t translate during application (I’d guess it dropped on the way or got trapped in the brush as I didn’t notice fallout!). It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer. The consistency was lightly powdery but blendable. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Stay Sharp

Stay Sharp is a light brown with strong, warm golden undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had excellent color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease along the edges. The texture was soft, smooth, and velvety–denser and less powdery than most of the mattes in the palette–which made it a cinch to work with. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

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.

Succa 4 U

Succa 4 U is a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle over a matte finish. It was more packed with gold sparkle than most of the brand’s sparkle-plus-matte finish, so a fair amount translated to the lid during application. Unfortunately, they sit more on the surface and are easily blended well past wherever they were initially applied. It lasted well for eight hours but had moderate fallout over time.

Stuck On You

Stuck On You is a deep berry with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with a second. The texture was moderately powdery and was prone to sheering out a bit, so I’d definitely suggest using this over a primer. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

Clay Day

Clay Day is a dusty, medium-dark coral with moderate, warm undertones with flecks of silver sparkle over a matte finish. There was enough sparkle that some of it translated during application, but it didn’t bind with the underlying color, so it was prone to migration and falling out over time.

The texture was soft, blendable, and easy to work with otherwise. The eyeshadow had good color payoff that could be built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. It wore nicely for

Root 'Em Up

Root ‘Em Up is a deep brown with muted, warm olive undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a soft, velvety texture that was a smidgen powdery in the pan but was blendable and didn’t sheer out too easily when applied to bare skin. It lasted well for eight hours before fading slightly.

So much prettier and with richer depth than that Nothing Wild (yes, the word reversal is intentional) Sahara inspired disaster! This is what I think of when I think of “desert”, as in, outside the built up, well watered Valley Of The Sun or Tucson area. One more green in a dark matte cooler toned sage green would have been appreciated, though.

I would have loved a deeper green also. I like this palette though. So much cheaper than the other palettes I am considering this week, LOL!

This palette certainly contains a wide variety of shades and a wide variety of ratings. Personally, this is not for me, but I think there is enough variation here to make it a versatile palette.

I really wish Colourpop would stop with the glittered mattes. The glitter rarely ever translates to the lid. Thank you for your review Christine. You definitely helped me save some money!

I feel like this is bascially the Anna palette from CP with a few extra pinks and the green. I really like the Anna palette but that also means I don’t need this.

I picked this up when it launched because I was intrigued by the color story and I have not purchased anything from Colourpop in a while. I would have to say that I agree with Christine’s ratings and thoughts on the shadows. I use fingers to apply a lot of shimmers so I think that I am going to have a pretty easy time applying with minimal fallout. I am not the biggest fan of glitter mattes but I think the shades are nice enough that I am willing to make them work!

The glitter mattes are a huge pain for trying to pack onto the lid and keeping the particles from flying everywhere. I do find that if I tap my brush enough, the pigment sticks but the glitter falls away so I just use it as a matte shadow. The rest of the palette is really easy to use otherwise.

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!
