She's Got Solstice

Colour Pop She’s So Solstice 9-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($14.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a new, nine-pan palette that features a mix of warmer pops of brown and coral with a few shimmers. For those who don’t already have a plethora of ColourPop palettes, it might appeal, but there was a fair amount of overlap with past releases (more current and further in the past). The performance is consistent with more recent releases, which I have found to be a little more powdery/more loosely pressed (with respect to shimmers), though often still with good pigmentation and decent wear.

So Sirius

So Sirius is a bright, light-medium peach with strong, warm undertones and tons of gold shimmer that gave it a more metallic finish. The texture was soft, more loosely-pressed, so it had to be pressed and patted into place to minimize fallout. Otherwise, I’d say to use it with a dampened brush or fingertip to get maximum coverage, smoother application, and minimize fallout. It stayed on well for eight hours before I noticed signs of 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.

Big Bang

Big Bang is a pale pink with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, velvety with light glide, so it was denser and more substantial but had a bit of fallout. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly and blended out nicely along the edges. This shade lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Quasar

Quasar is a muted, medium orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. At times, it was almost more coral than orange. The eyeshadow had a soft, somewhat powdery texture, though it wasn’t prone to sheering out or having fallout during application, so I was able to keep its nearly opaque pigmentation that way in practice. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Nova

Nova is a light, peachy brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had somewhat powdery in the pan, though it didn’t seem particularly prone to fallout (but tap off excess if you tend to be heavy-handed just in case!). It had good color payoff but had to be built up with a second layer for full coverage. The color stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Estrella (She's Got Solstice)

Estrella (She’s so Solstice) is a brighter, medium-dark, warmer pink base with flecks of gold sparkle and shimmer throughout. The consistency was slightly more loosely-pressed into the pan, so it worked better applied with a fingertip or a lightly dampened brush as dry application had light fallout and could have applied more smoothly to my lid. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full opacity with a second layer (or again, applied with fingertips/dampened brush!). This shade wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Super Stardust

Super Stardust is a medium-dark, coppery bronze with strong, warm undertones and a glittering, metallic finish. Per the ingredient list, it does contain plastic (PET) glitter, though the particle size was a lot smaller than the brand’s typical Pressed Glitters. The texture was creamier and denser, which seemed to help with adhesion and keeping the particles with the base pigment to reduce fallout potential.

Some of the flecks of glitter blended out as I diffused the edge, so it wasn’t impervious to movement. It had good color coverage but was firm enough that it worked better with fingertips for maximum coverage in a single layer. There was slight fallout over time but had fairly good wear over an eight-hour period.

Marz

Marz is a light green with warm, olive undertones and a metallic finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, which adhered well to bare skin. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and dense without being too firmly pressed into the pan. The color showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

Earth Angel

Earth Angel is a medium coral with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was somewhat powdery, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand to avoid excess product kicked up in the pan and to minimize fallout during application. It was more substantial and more velvety, which prevented the product’s opaque coverage from sheering out when applied and blended out. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Thanks for the review. Funny, as I was reading your reviews for this palette, I didn’t realize my Ulta package arrived inside my balcony. Then I opened and tried on some shadows on my eyelids. The shade Super Stardust seemed intense and prone to fallout. I recalled reading the ingredients when I first placed my order was that I found that this exact eyeshadow Super Stardust does contain PET the infamous and unsafe glitter especially on the eyes. I don’t know if you were aware of that shade- perhaps add this info with the above review. I hope it won’t get stuck into my contact lenses. Going to wash it off now!
BTW thanks for your review as always!

When all but two shades have at least one Colourpop dupe and some have several… it’s like when you come across a face which is technically new to you but contains several specific features recognizable from people you know, resulting in an odd deja vu.

IKR? It’s pretty laughable. Every once in a while, a shade will have 10 dupes, and 6 are CP. And most people you know would not recognize an >75% dupe. The Ys (y chromes, men) would fare worse. Was it Yogi Berra who said, ‘Deja vu all over again.’? At times, it seems like 10 European countries in 6 days. If it’s Tuesday it must be a Belgium. All rather melting into an only slightly differentiated whirl.

There’s something I really love about all the shimmers having a gold glow to them. Unfortunately, that’s it. The mattes all look so easily replicated inside of my stash that they just don’t appeal to me. In other words, I’m just not sure whether this is one that all grabbed up or not.

Yes, this palette is like many of the recent palettes released by Colour Pop. The only fairly original shade here is Marz. A beautiful sage green shade.

This is pretty similar to a lot of the shades in the Sweet Talk palette, which I have, and I think a color from my Viseart Absinthe Theory palette would cover the pop of muted green, so I’m all set. I do love the peaches with a pop of green, though. Very springy.

I love, love, love your eye looks for this and All Things Equinox. Just beautiful. So glowy and spring-like.

I hope I can approximate the general glowy sunniness of these two with palettes I already have, though, because I can’t buy every palette they come out with (so many lately) just because you do magical things with it!
