Top Notch

ColourPop Top Notch Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. 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.” It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The consistency was soft, lightly dusty but not too messy or fallout-prone during application, and blendable in practice. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

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.

Cloud Nine

ColourPop Cloud Nine Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a dark brown with subtle, warm red undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly and smoothly with just a little extra effort to blend out the edges to avoid patchiness. The texture was smooth, a touch dusty, and finely-milled in the pan. This shade started fade on me after seven and a half hours of wear.

Save It For Later

ColourPop Save It For Later Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a medium copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a frosted sheen. It had nice pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The eyeshadow felt smooth, almost cream-like, and blended out well on the skin. It wore for just over seven and a half hours on me.

Lost and Found

ColourPop Lost and Found Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a bright, medium blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had medium coverage, which I did not find built up well, so it always had a faded, uneven, and patchy look–even over a primer. The texture was quite dusty, which made it prone to sheering out as well. It lasted for six and a half hours on me before fading.

Piece of Cake

ColourPop Piece of Cake Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a medium-dark, purplish blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty texture that made it harder to apply and build up to get better coverage and true-to-pan intensity. This shade started to fade after six and a half hours on me.

Backseat

ColourPop Backseat Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark blue with cool undertones and a frosted finish. It was a “warmer” blue, so it didn’t run quite as rich or as deep as a more cobalt-hued blue would. The consistency was a little firmer in the pan, though it still yielded good pigmentation and was fairly easy to apply and blend out on the lid. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

Save It for Later and Backseat are beautiful. Upon first seeing the latter, I thought it might be too cool for me, but reading your impression has made me want to swatch it myself.

Piece of Cake is *such* a beautiful color, I really wish it performed better! It looks like its dupes struggle with performance, though, too. And Lost and Found! At least I have MUFE I212. It often seems like the colors I love most are hard to make. I do like Backseat, but have MUFE ME230.

Oooh, those 1st three, plus Backseat, are absolutely lovely! While I do own quite a few teals, I don’t believe any of mine have as much of a bluer tone to them as does Backseat. So just maybe I will need it!

And then CP’s attempt to do matte pastel blue and purple looks just beastly. They need to instead bring back their regular formula versions of these!

It’s too bad the matte pastels are so-so. Backseat is pretty, but I feel like they would’ve nailed the shade in their hybrid cream powder formula.

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!
