Silver Spoon

ColourPop Silver Spoon Pressed Powder Shadow Quad ($9.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new release that features one shimmery shade complemented by three matte shades for a more monochromatic, smoky eyed color story. All four shades had semi-opaque to opaque color payoff, were blendable, and lasted around eight hours on me.

This quad is one of six in a holiday vault, though ColourPop said they would be available individually when I asked, but they have not appeared individually on the site. It’s not realistic for me to review it as a set (takes much longer, but I also started testing them across sets already, and the system is better setup for a palette, not five palettes within a set, for readability!), so I decided to review them individually still.

Silver Medal

Silver Medal is a deep gray with neutral undertones and a metallic finish. The consistency was soft, a little drier to the touch, which made it have light fallout if applied with a dry brush. I’d use this with a dampened brush or gently pressed on with a fingertip for less fallout. It had rich pigmentation that wore well 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.

Pricey

Pricey is a very light taupe with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff paired with a smooth, velvety texture that was lightly powdery but not prone to fallout or sheering out too readily. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

Spoon Up

Spoon Up is a darker, purpled-gray with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a slightly firmer feel, though it wasn’t stiff or difficult to blend out. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Late Date

Late Date is a rich, inky black with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was very silky and finely-milled with a little bit of powderiness that was mostly confined to the pan, though I’d use a lighter-hand with it as it was quite pigmented anyway. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Even though I have far more black eyeshadows than I will ever use in my lifetime (and I have limited need for black shadows) and, like Genevieve, I dislike how often black shadows are included in so many palettes, I really like this little beauty for its cool-toned practicality. Once again, I can’t help wishing I could just nip out to the store and buy this, because I most certainly would!
