Menage a Muah

Colour Pop Menage a Muah 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition pink and mauve-themed color story that featured a mix of matte, shimmer, and glitter shades. The mattes were fairly powdery across the board–some that were more workable than others but tended to be messy enough where they had to be used over primer and eyes had to be done prior to complexion products as. One shimmer was particularly disappointing as it was quite dry and had very poor adhesion (even over primer–it had to be used wet).

Crave

Crave is a light beige with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had an incredibly powdery consistency, which resulted in a lot of fallout and a tendency for the product to sheer out when applied and blended out, even though it seemed to have opaque coverage initially. It wore decently for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and characteristics (like scent).

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.

Amour

Amour is a medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and felt more like a cream-to-powder. It had opaque color coverage that adhered well to bare skin and blended out with ease. The color stayed on nicely for nine hours before fading visibly.

Total Flirt

Total Flirt is a muted, medium-dark peachy-pink with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had a more powdery consistency, despite being soft and fairly blendable, so there was some fallout during application and blending. It had nearly opaque color payoff that lasted decently for seven and a half hours on me.

After Midnight

After Midnight is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of warmer, gold micro-sparkle over a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a moderately powdery texture, so there was a fair amount of fallout working with it–even when being careful to tap off excess–and a tendency to sheer out. It showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear.

Novel

Novel is a muted, medium-dark pink with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well. The texture was soft, somewhat powdery but more velvety, so it wasn’t prone to sheering out too readily. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.

Confess

Confess has a transparent base filled with an assortment of smaller, glitter particles that was dominated by a darker, warmer pink particle but had some other colors going on in it. It contained plastic (PET) glitter, and it came with the warning that it was not to be used around the eye area. The texture was more emollient, almost wet to the touch, so it had better adhesion than a standard, powder glitter might have had. The glitter also dispersed decently across an area, which made it easier to work with. There was noticeable migration from stray particles after seven and a half hours of wear.

Obsession is a darker, rosy mauve with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish.

The texture was more emollient, though it had good dispersion over bare skin, and was best applied using a fingertip. It lasted well for eight hours with light migration over time (I wore it as a cheek highlighter).

Miss U

Miss U is a medium-dark red with warmer, coppery undertones and a frosted finish. It had a more loosely-pressed, drier consistency, which resulted in a lot of fallout and poorer adhesion to bare skin. I’d recommend using it with a dampened brush as even fingertips did not get it to adhere very well. It had mostly opaque coverage, if one could get it to stick to the skin and not fall off! The color wore for seven hours before fading noticeably.

Butterflies

Butterflies is a muted, medium-dark red-brown with subtle, warm undertones paired with a sparkling, matte finish. The base was more matte but there were flecks of pink and gold micro-sparkle strewn throughout, which mostly contributed to fallout. It had opaque color coverage but had a fairly powdery consistency, so there was additional fallout from the base product as well. It stayed on decently for eight hours before fading a bit.

No Drama

No Drama is a medium-dark burgundy with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage. The texture was a bit firmer compared to the other shades, but this meant no powderiness either, which made it easier to pick up and to apply. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours and left a stain behind.

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.

NOTICE: All products categorized under "Pigment" carry a warning in the US that the product is "not intended for use in the immediate eye area." Brands in the US typically market these products as "Pigments" (instead of "Eyeshadow"), and there is often a warning on the back of packaging or the label. The product includes color additives that are not approved for usage on the eyes per the FDA. Some color additives in "Pigments" have no usage restrictions in the EU, per CosIng, and can be used on the eyes. We recommend checking ingredients to confirm current safety assessment/restrictions: FDA/CosIng.

Cp palettes remind me always Huda beauty’s obsession ones. For example here removing the plastic glitter, you obtain exactly the mauve obsession (which I adore). Maybe this is not voluntary, it is simply due to the fact that mainstream brands propose the same colours all over their different releases

Talk about a mixed bag! This one has two strikes against it: 2 pressed glitter shades and very inconsistent quality. Sad, because I really thought I’d love everything else about it except for those pesky PET glitters.

Not my sort of colours – there isn’t a single shade in here that would suit me. And I just do not understand this whole pressed glitter that isn’t eye safe inclusion in every EYESHADOW palette.

I am really tired of all of these eye shadow palette being released with shadows that “aren’t for use in the immediate eye area.” I feel they are being disingenuous with this and one of these companies is going to have a class action lawsuit brought against them to test this deliberate deception.
Other than that, I like the palette, but since I have Huda’s New Nudes and a couple of PMG’s rosier type palettes, I don’t see a need for this at all.

Looks so much like their Flutter By palette, which just sold out. Instead of a plastic glitter, they should include that lovely cool-tone Wild Wing in every palette.
