ColourPop Lo-Key Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.20 oz.) includes four eyeshadows (that can be removed) in a slim, cardboard palette. The eyeshadows can also be purchased individually for $5 each. This palette performed quite well, even the mattes, and the eyeshadows coordinated with each other but also would be good shades for a growing collection.

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.” For me, the new eyeshadow formula has been hit or miss with the more shimmery shades tending to perform better than the mattes, as their major downside was the lack of pigmentation, but they were buildable, so that made them workable. I felt like, on average, ColourPop’s powder formula wore shorter than most formulas on me with more noticeable fading. Primer definitely helped but still seemed to be shorter than other brands (over the same primer).

Colour Pop I Owe You Pressed Powder Shadow

Colour Pop I Owe You Pressed Powder Shadow

I Owe You

I Owe You is a slightly muted, medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation that applied extremely well to bare skin. I was impressed by how smooth and opaque the coverage was in one layer. The texture was soft without being powdery, and it was easy to work with. This shade started to fade after seven and a half hours on me.

Colour Pop Criss Cross Pressed Powder Shadow

Criss Cross

Criss Cross is a medium-dark orange with reddish undertones and a mostly matte finish.

It had nearly opaque color payoff that wore well for seven and a half hours on me.
