Lifted

Colour Pop Lifted Super Star Loose Pigment ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a pearl-to-metallic finish. Applied dry, it had sheer coverage that had a lot of fallout during application unless patted over a tacky base. The texture was incredibly finely-milled and silky to the touch, so it was quite blendable, but it really needed to be applied using a dampened brush, where the coverage was opaque, application was even and had minimal fallout, and the entire product came into its own. I just wouldn’t bother with this formula if dry application was the primary use. I think you can top off or build up application with slightly dry product, but it really calls for wet/damp application to work well. On its own, it lasted for six hours dry and eight hours when applied wet.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.07 oz. - $71.43 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed be a wet/dry formula that has less intense shine when applied dry and a more metallic finish when applied wet. They're a finely-milled, loose powder that can be used on eyes, lips, and cheeks. Not wholly surprising, they tended to perform best applied with a dampened brush or over a lightly tacky primer. They can be a little messy to work with if you are not used to loose eyeshadows, but I did not find them any better or worse than the average loose formula. The pigmentation varied a lot from shade to shade, though most shades had more pigmentation when applied with a dampened brush along with greater shine.

Mulholland

Colour Pop Mulholland Super Star Loose Pigment ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium, golden bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. Applied in thin layers, I could achieve more opaque coverage when I built it up using it dry, but again, I highly recommend applying the product using a dampened brush, which yielded opaque, smooth color payoff in a single layer and had little fallout during application. The loose eyeshadow wore well for seven hours applied dry and nine hours applied wet.

Typhoon

Colour Pop Typhoon Super Star Loose Pigment ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a pale beige with warm undertones and silver and blue glitter. It had good pigmentation dry and damp actually, but the glitter adhered better and more evenly when used with a dampened brush. The consistency was velvety and finely-milled, and it was easy to blend out on my lid. There was some fallout during wear, though, particularly when applied dry (six hours) compared to dampened application (eight hours).

Honeypot

Colour Pop Honeypot Super Star Loose Pigment ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light silver with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff applied dry, which made it one of the more pigmented shades for dry application, but it did intensify to opaque coverage and had a much shinier finish when used with a dampened brush. The dampened application was definitely preferred to minimize fallout, increase coverage, and even made wear time better (from seven to eight hours).

While I have no problem using shadows wet, I get the feeling that these are just as cumbersome as their SSS’s. I DO appreciate that ColourPop did add sifters to these, though!

These are all lovely shades but I think the loose shadow formulation makes them trickier to use and each one of them has lots of dupes living in our palettes in pressed powder formats.

I find it so weird that their loose pigments are so sheer. With most brands, the loose pigments are pigmented, and the pressed are sheer. CP’s seem to be the opposite.
