Sage the Day

ColourPop Sage the Day 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($14.00 for 0.32 oz.) is supposed to be a sage-inspired color story, though I’d just say it’s green-leaning rather than a particularly literal-translation of sage as a hue. It was grounded by warmer browns. The matte shades were pigmented, smooth, and blendable, while the shimmers were mostly opaque in coverage but a couple were a bit more loosely-pressed in feel.

Lit Vibes

Lit Vibes is a very pale, peachy-gold base with green-to-gold shifting duochrome shimmer.

  • Opaque pigmentation
  • Smooth, moderately emollient consistency without being too dense
  • Picked up readily with dry brush, blended out well
  • Long-wearing (8 hours before fading visibly)

FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and characteristics (like scent).

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.
