Truly Iconic

ColourPop Truly Iconic 9-Pan Shadow Palette (Plastic) ($12.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a cooler-toned neutral color story that included more muted and gray-based browns and taupes paired with fairly light shimmers. The formulas for the eyeshadows in the palettes made for Target seemed slightly different than the brand’s average formula. The shimmers were more loosely-pressed and a little dry, which made them more prone to fallout during application and using a firmer, flatter brush and/or fingertip seemed to help them adhere more evenly. The matte shades seemed less powdery compared to the brand’s typical mattes and slightly thinner, though in a neutral way, as they seemed to apply evenly and blend out without issues overall.

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.

“Iconic” is one of those annoying words that needs to be retired. Along with ‘obsessed’. And ‘stunning’.
I could go on. And on.
