Vibe Check

ColourPop Vibe Check 9-Pan Shadow Palette (Plastic) ($12.00 for 0.28 oz.) includes four shimmer shades and five matte shades with a mix of pinks, plums, and neutrals.

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.

  • Mostly opaque color coverage

  • Applied fairly evenly but easiest to use with fingertip/dampened brush
  • Average-wearing (7.5 hours)

Possible Dupes
These are likely to be very similar shades based on our duping algorithm.

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.
