Mocktail

ColourPop Mocktail Pressed Powder Shadow Quad ($9.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes one shimmer eyeshadow, one “glitter metallic” shade, which was listed as not for use around the eye area (it included plastic, or PET, glitter in the ingredient list), and two matte eyeshadows housed in a plastic, see-through compact. All four shades were pigmented, blendable, and longer-wearing, though the weakest shade was Shaken, as the glitter particles resulted in more fallout than visual impact/interest on the lid (though it’s not intended for use on the eye area).

Iced

Iced is a medium gold with strong, warm orange undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had opaque color coverage that adhered well to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges. The texture was soft, slightly drier with a little bit of fallout during application, but it went on smoothly and was easy enough to work with. It showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

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.

Shaken

Shaken is a brighter, medium-dark pink base with lighter, gold-to-peach shifting shimmer and flecks of pink micro-glitter over a metallic finish. Per the brand, this shade is not intended for use around the eye area, and as far as I could tell, that was because it included small glitter particles.

It had opaque color coverage with a smoother, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t too dense or too firmly-pressed into the pan. There was light fallout during application, and it was really hard to detect the effect of those glitter particles applied. It wore well for eight hours with light fallout over time.

Chaser

Chaser is a rich, medium-dark copper with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a smooth, more velvety texture with a touch of powderiness in the pan, but it delivered opaque pigmentation on the lid and blended out seamlessly without being prone to fallout. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Highball

Highball is a slightly muted, medium-dark reddish-brown with soft, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly and blended out without difficulties. The texture was soft, smooth, and lightly powdery but not prone to sheering out or having fallout. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

This quad is so nice looking, so why oh why did ColourPop have to go and ruin that very beautiful shade Shaken by adding PET glitter to it? If not, I would have bought it!

I appreciate how a few of the quads are in the midtone range like this one. My biggest gripe is the glitter metallic. These could have been fantastic otherwise.

I wish Colourpop would remove PET glitter/all bad glitter from eyeshadow palettes and rather make glitter palettes for faces. Not put together with eyeshadows.

Why would you make an EYEshadow palette with shadows that can’t be used around the eye?

It is sad that we basically pay for 4 shades, but can only use 3. This is the one quad I wanted.
