Violet It Be

ColourPop Violet It Be Pressed Powder Shadow Quad ($9.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, purple-themed color story that included two shimmery shades and two matte shades designed to coordinate with the brand’s temporary hair color range. The shimmers were solid, but the two mattes were sheerer, more powdery, and not as easy to use as anticipated. You’d definitely want to use an eyeshadow primer with this set of shades!

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.
