Goody Two-Shoes

ColourPop Goody Two-Shoes Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a dark, charcoal gray with warmer, brown undertones and cooler pearl–it read cooler overall. 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 excellent pigmentation with a smooth, blendable texture that adhered evenly to the skin. This shade wore well for eight 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.

Wait for It

ColourPop Wait For It Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was a bit firmer in the pan, but it wasn’t too difficult to blend out overall. It had good, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to the skin. This shade started to fade after seven hours of wear.

Making Moves

ColourPop Making Moves Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had intense pigmentation that adhered well to bare skin, despite having a more powdery feel in the pan (plenty of excess product kicked up in the pan, even with a light touch!). The eyeshadow blended out fairly well and lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Silver Lining

ColourPop Silver Lining Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark purple with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation paired with a very powdery consistency. The eyeshadow sheered out too readily, so there was a lot of fallout and an inability to build up the color without a tacky, white base. It lasted for five hours on me.

Come and Get It

ColourPop Come and Get It Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a bright pop of pink with cooler undertones and warmer, golden shimmer that gave it a more metallic finish. The eyeshadow had a denser, more cream-like consistency in the pan, which made it thicker on the lid. This helped it adhere and apply more smoothly, but it was harder to layer and blend with the matte formula (which has a thinner consistency typically). This shade wore well for eight hours on me.

Stay Golden

ColourPop Stay Golden Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had intense pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The eyeshadow had a very powdery texture, though, and there was some fallout during application. The color started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear.

Goody Two Shoes, Come & Get It, and Stay Golden are beautiful! Not sure what I’m getting yet, but thanks for posting these, hoping to put in a CP order today

Oh man I love the look of all of these! I’ve had so much stuff sitting in a CP cart just waiting to be purchased and i’m just waiting for my new debit card to come in…

Hi Christine,
I notice the poor grading on the purple shadow and it got me thinking.
This is a common weakness for a lot of brands.
Any idea why purple shadows are so hard to formulate?

Pity about the purple but the rest of them are really very want-worthy. Goody Two Shoes is a must as is Stay Golden and Come and Get It.

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!
