Quicksand

Colour Pop Quicksand Super Star Loose Pigment ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish copper with warm undertones and a glittering, metallic finish. There seemed to be a mix of finer pearl and larger sparkle in this particular shade, though the sparkles weren’t as obvious when I used the product with a dampened brush. The dry application yielded semi-opaque coverage, moderate fallout during application, and six-hour wear. The dampened application yielded opaque, smooth pigmentation that didn’t have fallout during application and stayed on well for eight hours.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.07 oz. - $71.43 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed be a wet/dry formula that has less intense shine when applied dry and a more metallic finish when applied wet. They're a finely-milled, loose powder that can be used on eyes, lips, and cheeks. Not wholly surprising, they tended to perform best applied with a dampened brush or over a lightly tacky primer. They can be a little messy to work with if you are not used to loose eyeshadows, but I did not find them any better or worse than the average loose formula. The pigmentation varied a lot from shade to shade, though most shades had more pigmentation when applied with a dampened brush along with greater shine.

Golightly

Colour Pop Golightly Super Star Loose Pigment ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It was another shade that just did not work that well dry; it really is a formula that seems best applied with a dampened brush (and shouldn’t really be marketed for dry use). The texture felt smooth and silky as it was quite finely-milled, but the coverage was hard to get when I worked with it dry, and when I built up the color, there was a fair amount of fallout during application and shorter wear (six hours). If I applied it with a dampened brush, it yielded opaque, even coverage in a single layer and lasted well for eight hours.

Badlands

Colour Pop Badlands Super Star Loose Pigment ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brighter, medium purple with warm undertones and a satin-to-pearl finish. It had more of a satin finish when applied dry, where more of the base color came through, but it intensified to a more pearly sheen when applied with a dampened brush. The texture was silky to the touch but had some fallout when applied to the lid dry, so it was easier to work with it using a dampened brush to get better coverage and less fussy application. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me dry and almost eight and a half hours dampened.

Up Shot

Colour Pop Up Shot Super Star Loose Pigment ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium green with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. Applied dry, it had semi-sheer coverage with more of a satin-to-pearl finish that had some fallout during application and lasted for six hours on my lids. Applied wet, it had rich color payoff with a smoother, easier application that had very little fallout and lasted for eight hours on me.

Baby Roo

Colour Pop Baby Roo Super Star Loose Pigment ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium purple with warm undertones and flecks of copper micro-sparkle and smaller frosted shimmer. It had sheer coverage applied dry, but it intensified to mostly opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush. It wasn’t a shade I’d recommend unless you tend to use your loose eyeshadows with dampened brushes or over tacky bases. The texture was soft and finely-milled, so it blended out well along the edges but had some fallout if I worked with it dry. On its own, it lasted for six hours (dry) and eight hours (dampened).

When I saw the name ‘Badlands’ I immediately thought of the Bruce Springsteen song haha. Not a bad thing at all! The colour is really pretty too, however I am a novice at using pigments/loose powders and these are not enough to draw me in. I LOVE the rainbow eye look you put together though, holy moly it is gorgeous!!!!

The good: these have sifters!!! And some very beautiful shades, too.
The ‘meh’: I likely have at least one dupe per shade. Badlands=MAC Selena.
The bad: One obviously has to use them wet. Not a problem for me, as I always use the paltry few loose shadows I own wet every time.
I do wish that Baby Roo looked like it sounds, intensity wise. That coppery glitter with a lavender purple base sounds like it should look positively regal!

Really pretty summery shades, but the quality is not up to Colour Pop’s usually high standard. I was wondering whether many purchase loose shadows any more, when the pressed powder alternatives are more convenient.

There seems to be a revival of interest in loose powders. I have a small traincase of BMs that I haven’t cracked in a long time. I get aggro by the mess factor. Maybe ought to designate April loose powder month. To s.o. Ancient like me, almost everything seems to be a revival, with formula or color updates…like the recent lip powder revival, and its extension, the Lorac powder blush/lip pen. Decisions and revisions, which a minute can reverse. (Prufrock.)

I really want one of these, because I’ve discovered how much I love loose shadows from the Bare Minerals trio I got for $10, but none of the colors really speak to me or would be unique in my collection.
