Orchid You Not

ColourPop Orchid You Not 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($14.00 for 0.32 oz.) is an orchid-themed palette that included five matte shades and four shimmer shades. The quality was consistent with past ColourPop releases; the mattes were lightly powdery but pigmented, blendable, and easy enough to work with, while some of the shimmers were more loosely-pressed or drier, so there was potential for fallout. I was happy to discover that the shades didn’t seem too redundant once I had applied them, which can be an issue with more monochromatic palettes.

Pretty One

Pretty One is a light lavender with warm undertones and warmer, contrasting gold sparkle. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a moderately soft, somewhat drier texture that resulted in some frostiness when applied dry. It was smoother and less prone to fallout when applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush. It wore nicely for seven and a half 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.

Rebloom

Rebloom is a light-medium berry pink with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had nearly opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too powdery nor too firmly-pressed into the pan. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

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.

Of All Purple is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with subtle, cool undertones and cooler violet and blue pearl. It had rich pigmentation paired with a soft, smooth consistency that was lightly emollient without being powdery or prone to fallout. It lasted well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

Moth

Moth is a medium-dark, reddish-plum with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was moderately powdery with some dryness, though it applied better to bare skin than I expected as it went on evenly, built up with light fallout, and blended out without much effort along the edges. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Seedling is a deep, red-plum with strong, warm undertones and a pearly sheen.

Nuh Uh

Nuh Uh is a rich burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that could be built up with a second layer, though it was very soft to the point where it had some powderiness and light fallout during blending, so I’d recommend using a light hand and gently building up to avoid fallout. It lasted well for eight and a half hours and left a faint stain behind.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

I actually think that CP has done this shade justice – everything looks pretty good and you could definitely work this palette with any others you have. I really liked the richness of the Seedling shade too.

On one hand, I really love this palette a ton. On the other, I also realize that it may be a little lazy on my part considering that I can dupe at least 4-5 shades across multiple palettes in my possession. I think we already know that I’m probably going to go the lazy route! Who can say?

This is so lovely. Few of SP’s offerings tempt me, but this one does, a lot!
A quick read through the dupes and I could find only one dupe, MAC Cranberry for Seedling. I will take a closer look, but might actually turn my no buy into a temporary low buy for this one, and toss in some of the lipsticks just because even with shipping, tax and fee it’s not very expensive to buy from CP.

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!
