Lit

Colour Pop Lit 8-Pan Pressed Shadow Palette ($12.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette with warm-toned shades across mattes and shimmers. Worth noting, the following shades are “not intended for use in the immediate eye area” per the brand: Mercy and Like. Most of the eyeshadows had good pigmentation, were blendable, and easy enough to use, though it wasn’t quite as good as some of the brand’s previous offerings have been.

Or Whatevah

Or Whatevah is a soft, peachy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The consistency was soft, blendable, and just a touch powdery in the pan. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.05 oz. - $100.00 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.

Mercy

Mercy is a medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The texture was chunkier and denser with a firmer, slightly cream-like texture, which made it harder to apply evenly with brushes but was workable with a flat, synthetic brush and patting/pressing motions on my lid. There was a bit of fallout when blended out along the edges. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before creasing faintly.

Macchiato

Macchiato is a medium-dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin. The consistency was soft, smooth, and not too thick or too thin, so it blended out easily but did not lose its intensity. It lasted well for eight hours on me before it started to fade.

She Got Money

She Got Money is a medium gold with warm undertones and a metallic finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which adhered well to bare skin and still blended out easily on my lid. The texture was soft, lightly creamy and easy to work with. It stayed on nicely for eight hours on me before it creased slightly.

Like is a medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. There were faint micro-shimmers that I could see in the swatch photos but not so much in person. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was soft, lightly dusty but blendable. It wore nicely for eight hours on me.

Bading

Bading is a soft, pinky-coral with warm, golden pearl. It had good pigmentation with a drier, dustier texture that was thinner than most shades by the brand (especially for a shimmer). It seemed to look more faded when applied, almost as if some of the shimmer disappeared. It blended out easily, though, and stayed on well for seven hours on me.

The only one I can imagine you found offense to was Bading. The person who collaborated with CP on the palette is a gay Filipino and who wanted to reclaim the term. I don’t see what’s wrong with the others though,

Not weird. It comes up repeatedly — it generally has to do with ingredients that are rated eye-safe in other places (say … Europe) but not here, so technically they’re eyeshadows but have to be sold in the U.S as “pigments” because of our particular rules.

You are not. And there are quite of few of that type out there. Although does that mean you can use them on your lid but just not right up to your eyeball? Either way, it’s strange.

That’s very common, actually. Most people just don’t bother reading the back of the boxes palettes come in. I use some shadows that aren’t “safe” and even my sensitive eyes don’t react.

This is quite pretty, but I have a small gripe with Colourpop’s emails. I don’t know who the fuck Bretman Rock is, and seeing the title of an email with basically only his name to let me know what the email is about…yeah, straight in the spam folder and now all their emails are automatically going in there. It’s kind of a pain in the ass to try and reverse spam markers with my email account.

PSA to Colourpop – just because we signed up to the email list doesn’t mean everyone knows who your collaborators are, maybe reassess titles. Thanks!

Ok…back to the swatches, I like this palette and the other eye palette and that red lip quite a lot. Also your hair looks amazing still. If it was mine all those beautiful reds and purples would have faded in two washes.

It’s a nice, cohesive color story. I do like it, as I normally tend to favor warm colors such as these. It’s a good size to travel with, if you wanted a smaller palette for traveling.

Even though I realize that this color combo has been done ad nauseum, this eye look you did with this little palette is KILLER! My favorite shade in here is Mercy. Now to locate a perfect dupe!

Pretty little palette. Nothing ground breaking but the look you did with the palette and the lippie Wig with your hair is stunning. You are killing it in the eye look department. Even on a good day I can’t get my eye shadow to look like that and the pairing with the lip is perfect. Oh, passing on the palette!!

I had to google Periodt. I thought it was a typo for Peridot, but then that would be a green jewel tone. Ugh, I’m old. I think the colors on the palette are interesting and I love that they put in the bright matte yellow.

I too notice that many palettes put in a few shades that aren’t eye safe. I don’t have any issues with that at all, just find some really pigmented red or pinks sometimes stain.

I’m certain I have dupes of most of the colors in this palette. But, I had to take another look after seeing them on you. They look beautiful on youI
