On the Mango

ColourPop On the Mango Pressed Powder Shadow Quad ($9.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, limited edition orange-hued quad that included three matte shades and one shimmer shade. All four shades had rich color coverage, while the textures were smooth, blendable, and easy to work with.

P.S. — Mine arrived somewhat damage, which was unsurprising given how poorly packaged Ulta sends these (one thin layer of bubble wrap and the quads bounced around an oversized box for a few days!).

Mango Tango

Mango Tango is a light orange with warmer undertones and a pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had a smooth, lightly emollient texture that picked up readily with a dry brush but was best pressed onto the skin to avoid fallout. It had opaque color payoff that lasted well 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.

Orchard

Orchard is a very light, yellowed orange with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. The texture was soft, blendable, and smooth without being overly powdery or too firmly-pressed in the pan. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

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.

Sweet Nectar

Sweet Nectar is a vivid, medium orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, smooth, and velvety with little powderiness, though it remained blendable and easy to work with on bare skin. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
