Labelle of the Ball

ColourPop Labelle of the Ball Pressed Powder Quad ($12.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition pink-purple foursome that includes one pressed glitter, ome pressed pigment, and two eyeshadows. This, along with the rest of the Animal Crossing collaboration, launch January 28th at 10AM PT on ColourPop’s website and February 14th at Ulta.

I wish the brand had included a Super Shock Shadow instead of a glitter, since I think they can achieve a similar look and feel with that, which would have made the palette more versatile and appeal to a broader audience. The two more matte shades were either drier or more powdery, while the shimmer shade was a bit loose, so this palette will work best for someone who uses eyeshadow primer and doesn’t mind fallout during application.

Able Sisters

Able Sisters has a translucent base with flecks of silvery-white glitter and iridescent, more pastel-colored glitter. This shade contains plastic (PET) glitter and comes with the warning that it is not intended for the eye area. The texture was more emollient–one could press and move the product around with enough pressure–with light tackiness and decent adhesion on its own.

The one area that I think the brand’s pressed glitters excel is in their ability to disperse evenly without a lot of work. It had medium coverage–and the formula is inconsistent in coverage, which is why it’d be nice if they had clear descriptions!–that had good dispersion and lasted for eight hours with light fallout as a cheek highlighter.

Tailors Ticket

Tailors Ticket is a medium, pinky-lavender with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of silver sparkle over a matte finish. Those silver sparkles did not bind with the base, so they tended to fallout or get trapped in one’s brush–though as a result, very little transferred and so there was not much in the way of potential for fallout.

The consistency was soft, a little thinner and drier to the touch, but surprisingly, it wasn’t as powdery as it could have been. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation that wore well for eight hours.

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.

Custom Design

Custom Design has a medium, reddish-plum base with moderate, warmer undertones and aqua-blue to blue, pearly shift. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a soft, more loosely-pressed consistency that applied with the least fallout using a dampened brush or a fingertip. The shift was more noticeable when applied those ways, too. It stayed on decently for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Serene Sable

Serene Sable is a medium purple with subtle, warm pink undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was somewhat powdery with a tendency for fallout and a bit of sheering out when applied to bare skin or over an eyeshadow primer.

It had opaque color coverage initially, and it was blendable, so you’ll just want to build up coverage and ensure to use a primer underneath for maximum opacity/color trueness. It lasted for eight hours before fading a bit.

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." 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.

NOTICE: All products categorized under "Pigment" carry a warning in the US that the product is "not intended for use in the immediate eye area." Brands in the US typically market these products as "Pigments" (instead of "Eyeshadow"), and there is often a warning on the back of packaging or the label. The product includes color additives that are not approved for usage on the eyes per the FDA. Some color additives in "Pigments" have no usage restrictions in the EU, per CosIng, and can be used on the eyes. We recommend checking ingredients to confirm current safety assessment/restrictions: FDA/CosIng.

After seeing the show Euphoria, I see why glitter is trending so much under the eyes (in addition to it trending in Korean beauty). Even still, I just think pressed glitter is so hard to work with, compared with a product like MAC’s dazzleshadow liquid format (a format with a binder to make the glitter adhere). The pressed glitter makes me feel even more that ColourPop is going in the direction of fast fashion, to the point where it will hurt their longevity.
