ColourPop Semi Precious Gemini Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Semi Precious Gemini

ColourPop Semi Precious Gemini Pressed Powder Shadow Quad ($9.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes two shimmer shades (molten gold, peachy gold) and two matte shades (rich yellow, orange-brown). The eyeshadows were of decent quality, though they were not the best the brand has released, but I didn’t have any major issues working with the shades together.

Too Witty

Too Witty is a darker gold with strong, warm orange undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The consistency was soft, more loosely-pressed with a touch of powderiness, but it had good adhesion when pressed/patted on the skin. For absolute no fallout, I’d recommend using it with a fingertip or a dampened brush. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation that stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

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.

Soul-cialite

Soul-cialite is a light, peachy gold with warmer undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that adhered well to bare skin with slight fallout. The texture was lightly emollient, smooth to the touch, and blendable. This shade lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Entangled

Entangled is a bright, darker yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, somewhat powdery, and a little on the thinner side; it felt a touch chalky compared to other mattes that have been recently released but wasn’t difficult to work with in the end. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation that wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Boheme (Gemini)

Boheme (Gemini) is a brighter, light-medium brown with strong, warm orange undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented in a single layer, which adhered well to bare skin and diffused easily along the edges as the texture was smooth, velvety, and not too powdery. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

I agree with Nancy above – Soul-cialite is a gorgeous colour. I also think the bright yellow/mustard shade seems out of sync with the rest of the quad though.
