Outta Luck

Colour Pop Outta Luck Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.042 oz.) is a soft, light-medium peachy beige with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly on the skin. The consistency was soft, a little dusty but finely-milled. I noticed slight fading after seven and a half hours of wear.

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.

Pep Talk

Colour Pop Pep Talk Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.042 oz.) is a light-medium, golden peach with warm, orange undertones and a metallic finish. This shade applied and looked much, much lighter on than it did in the pan (where it seemed more like a coral hue). The texture was soft, a touch dry but easy to blend and apply to bare skin in practice. It had opaque color coverage that stayed on well for eight hours.

Time Out

Colour Pop Time Out Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.042 oz.) is a medium, peachy coral with warm, yellow undertones and chunks of larger sparkle and pearl. It had semi-sheer color coverage, which was partially due to the much looser, chunkier texture that made it difficult to apply evenly to bare skin. Even over primer, it was disappointing–this shade needs an adhesive primer to help it. There was fallout within a few hours of wear, and it started to crease after five hours.

The News

Colour Pop The News Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.042 oz.) is a muted, medium coral with a hint of pink paired with a mostly matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage paired with a soft, finely-milled consistency that had more substance to it so it did not sheer out when applied to bare skin. It had a bit of excess product that kicked up in the pan, but it wasn’t problematic on the eyes. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours before fading.

Play by Play

Colour Pop Play by Play Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.042 oz.) is a bright, light-medium golden orange with warm, orange undertones and a flash of green-to-gold frost. It was almost a duochrome, but the shift seemed rather subtle to my eye, even in person. The texture was a little looser to the touch, so it sheered out a bit when applied to bare skin. The eyeshadow had good pigmentation, though, and lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Only Play By Play is calling out to me out of this set. It reminds me of something I’ve seen, but I cannot recall exactly what….weird! I could definitely see it pairing up nicely with green.

thank you for this review! i am always tempted by the colourpop new releases, but like everything else, i wait for you to review it! you save me so much time and disappointment 🙂

I’m really liking The News!!! I can’t help it…I always want eyeshadow! I have so many, but there is always a new one catching my eye! Plus, I have yet to try Colourpop eye products, so…I probably need to put in an order. 😉
