Make It Fearless

ColourPop Make It Fearless 5-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) includes two matte shades, one sparkle-matte shade, one metallic shade, and one satin shade. They were very pigmented, though some shades were a little powdery or had some light fallout during application, but they were consistent with the brand’s formula overall.

Oasis

Oasis is a medium-dark yellow with warmer undertones and a matte finish with flecks of random sparkle that didn’t bind much with the underlying base. I found that most of those loose sparkles disappeared during application, so fallout wasn’t a major issue. The texture was somewhat powdery, but the product applied evenly to my lid and blended out with just a bit of sheering out. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation that lasted for eight hours on me.

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.

Bold

Bold is a rich, medium copper with warmer undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented with a soft, more loosely-pressed texture that yielded light fallout during application. I’d recommend patting and pressing it into place or using it with a dampened brush to minimize fallout. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

OOO

OOO is a vivid, deep orange with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, lightly powdery but blendable and substantial enough to yield full color coverage that adhered evenly to my lid. The color showed signs of fading after eight and a half hours of wear.

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.

High Key

High Key is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cooler undertones and barely-there pearl. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery texture that wasn’t prone to sheering out too readily but was blendable. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours and left a faint stain behind.

Say Yes

Say Yes is a medium-dark, reddish-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented, while the consistency felt soft, smooth, and lightly powdery to the touch. It applied evenly to bare skin and diffused well along the edges without losing its intensity. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

This is a much better quality mini palette than those awful quads a few weeks back. I like that the net proceeds ends up with a charity so worthy as this one – creating and sustaining small businesses goes a long way to providing long term employment and personal success.
I just think that more cohesive shades could have been chosen – a focus on greens or purples, for example. Each of the colourful shades above need a whole lot of subtle colours so that they shine or pop.

I love the cause but loathe the colours. Bold is the only shade I would even considering using in this palette but that’s me and my personal taste. I’d love it if more companies were doing this sort of charitable support, though (I think I mentioned it the other day). I’d for sure be on board.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
