The Scorpio

Colour Pop The Scorpio Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with strong, warm coppery undertones and a pearly sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was easy to work with. The eyeshadow applied evenly to my lid, blended out with little effort, and stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.

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.

The Libra

Colour Pop The Libra Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a soft, pinky-coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t too firmly nor too softly pressed in the pan. The eyeshadow applied well and blended out easily along the edges. It wore nicely for eight hours on me before I noticed fading.

The Sagittarius

Colour Pop The Sagittarius Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty consistency that was very blendable and had almost no fallout during application. The eyeshadow lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before it showed signs of fading.

The Capricorn

Colour Pop The Capricorn Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a soft black with barely-there gold shimmer. It had opaque pigmentation with a drier, slightly stiffer consistency that was a bit thin compared to most of the brand’s matte eyeshadows. It applied evenly to my skin but took a bit of extra effort to diffuse along the edges. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

The Aquarius

Colour Pop The Aquarius Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium, periwinkle blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery consistency–though it had a lot less fallout and was easier to work with than the version I have from the palette. So while there’s still room for improvement, it did improve from the last iteration (at least for me). It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

The Pisces

Colour Pop The Pisces Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, medium aqua with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic finish. The consistency was thicker and chunkier, which resulted in light fallout during application, and it was better to apply this with fingertips, which helped to smooth out and press the product onto my lid. The pigmentation was semi-opaque and buildable. This shade stayed on well for eight hours on me before creasing faintly.

Why do I, a Libran, always get such “not for me” colours (it was the same with Bite Beauty’s Libra lipstick; I can’t remember the colour but I know it was something that for me was just plain ugly and disappointing)

I wonder what the breakout of people who felt it was a good match for their sign vs. not at all would really be!

I have a mini version of the Libra lipstick from Bite Beauty and I absolutely hate how it looks on me. It looks like I’m wearing dog poo! I’m sure it works much better on different skin tones. Just not for me.

Dog poo was my first reaction when I saw that lipstick too, Seraphine, and it was so disappointing. Same with their recent “cities” lippies. Toronto was the one I was hoping would be nice but it was too warm and poppy red toned for me and I was also sad that, particularly in light of Bite being Canadian to start with, there weren’t a few more Canadian cities (Montreal, Ottawa, maybe even Halifax or Charlottetown, to say nothing of great place names like Moose Jaw, Old Woman’s falls and (not sure I can type this and not be nailed for my language) D!ldo, Newfoundland (okay, I’m being a bit silly but, what the heck, it’s Canada Day!)

I believe that the only one that I not only love, but don’t have a super close dupe of, would have to be The Scorpio.

Too bad that they didn’t improve on The Aquarius and Pisces. But, I’ve got plenty of dupes for Pisces. And I can oddly use MAC Indian Ink in Aquarius place for the same effect you got using Aquarius and Sagittarius together in the crease work.

A bit of a mixed bunch of results here, but at least Scorpio was good! That’s my birth month. I am not sure why the brand is releasing a single black shade….

Well, these all used to be in the Zodiac palette, which I’m guessing was popular enough to merit releasing these as singles!

I’m so tired of companies doing a zodiac inspired makeup collection and giving us a blue Aquarius shade. As an Aquarius who grew up in the 80s, when I see blue eyeshadow all I can see is Tammy Faye Baker. I would love something different or surprising.

Same here, LOL, Aquarius sign meaning is often confusing because the symbol for Aquarius is the Water Bearer. Eventually, it’s an Air sign.
