Melt 4 U

ColourPop Melt 4 U 5-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, peach-and-coral themed palette that included two mattes, one sparkle matte, and two shimmers. The palette was decent–fairly pigmented and blendable–but somewhat powdery, so it was prone to fallout during application. I’d recommend doing eyes ahead of base products and using a primer to help with some adhesion.

Bonbon

Bonbon is a medium peach with warmer, more orange undertones and fine, pink pearl throughout that gave it a subtle shift, though I wouldn’t call it a full-on duochrome. The texture was creamy, moderately dense, but it wasn’t too firmly-pressed into the pan and picked up well with a dry brush. The eyeshadow applied evenly with opaque coverage that stayed on nicely 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.

Sweetie

Sweetie is a bright, pink-peach with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, but the texture was somewhat powdery, which resulted in the product sheering out and having fallout during application. It lasted for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Dipped

Dipped is a light-medium pink with strong, warm undertones and warmer, peachy-gold shimmer that gave it a smooth, metallic sheen. It had nearly opaque color payoff that was buildable to full coverage with less than a second layer. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable but felt slightly more loosely-pressed so there was a smidgen of fallout during application if I wasn’t careful. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of wear.

Ganache

Ganache is a brighter, medium-dark pink-coral base with warmer undertones and flecks of gold and lavender micro-sparkle over a matte base. The texture was moderately powdery with some fallout, both from the powderiness but also from the micro-sparkles that did not bind with the underlying base color. It had opaque coverage, though, that blended out relatively easily on my skin. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Dutch

Dutch is a darker, pink-coral with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The texture was soft, lightly powdery but substantial enough to maintain its full coverage when applied to bare skin and blended out along the edges. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

This is a reasonably good mini palette from CP – it definitely is cohesive and all the shades rated well. I guess I’m just getting tired of either all their continual releases and their pink themes.

Not my best color family to wear this monochromatic. I’d look like I had very bloodshot eyes, I would imagine. Besides, it’s only an *okay* palette, so yeah, I’m not getting it.

Dear God,

In 2021, could you get rid of the sparkle matte finish in any and all eyeshadows? Eyeshadows should be sparkle or matte but not both.

🙏 Amen

I wonder why they keep making them! The sparkles never show up in the finished look anyway; wouldn’t it be cheaper to leave them out altogether??
