Like a Virgo

ColourPop Like a Virgo Pressed Powder Shadow Quad ($9.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes two shimmers (rosy plum with duochrome shift, white gold) and two mattes (rosy mauve, deeper brown). All four shades were pigmented, blendable, and longer-wearing, though you’ll likely want to do eyes before base as they ran a little powdery.

To the Tee

To the Tee is a light-medium, rosy plum base with warmer undertones paired with blue-to-green shifting shimmer. It had opaque color payoff that applied well to my lid and diffused nicely along the edge. The eyeshadow had a smooth, lightly emollient consistency to the touch but seemed a little drier once I worked with it in practice. It lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

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.

Perfection

Perfection is a bright, white gold with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had rich pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty consistency that had light fallout during application if I wasn’t careful to press/pat it into place. It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Details Details

Details Details is a medium, rosy mauve with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was slightly firmer compared to most of the brand’s matte eyeshadows, but it was by no means stiff to work with, so ultimately it was a little less powdery and could stand to be used with a more moderate pressure. It had opaque color coverage that stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Workhorse

Workhorse is a deep brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that blended out well and maintained its opacity despite having that powderiness. It lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

As a Virgo whose ultimate favorite SSS is Tang, they really got me to a T with this quad. It’s a bit boring, especially compared to some of the other color stories, but at least it performs well. Little sad that the duochrome is so subtle, though. I may not purchase this IMMEDIATELY but it’s on the list now.
