Whatever

Colour Pop Whatever 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.36 oz.) is new release for fall, which features seven matte eyeshadows, one cream eyeshadow, three shimmer eyeshadows, and one glitter (which isn’t intended to be used on the eyes). The mattes performed well; I feel like ColourPop has tweaked their matte formula slightly, as they’ve been feeling a little more velvety and smoother overall in the last palettes I’ve tried from them.

The three traditional shimmer shades were good, though TTYN seemed to have a little too much slip but was quite workable. Tardy, the Super Shock Shadow, should work fine for anyone who likes more of a topper/layering shade, as its big downside was lack of coverage.  Overall, the eyeshadows performed consistently with their formulas; they were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing.

Tardy

Tardy is a light, yellow gold with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had more medium coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage, but it worked better as a wash of color all over the lid, as a high-shine brow bone highlight, or to brighten the inner tear duct area.

The consistency was creamy, smooth, and thin, so it felt more powder-like–as the formula does–when applied to the skin but initially felt more emollient, and you could press on the pan and see the product move. This shade stayed on well for 10 hours without creasing or having fallout 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.

Pink Slip

Pink Slip is a muted, light brown with warmer, yellower undertones paired with a matte finish. The texture felt soft, velvety, and smooth to the touch, which resulted in even, blendable application. It had opaque color payoff that lasted beautifully for eight hours before fading a bit.

Maybe Later

Maybe Later is a brighter pop of reddish-orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had good pigmentation but needed a half of a layer more on top for full coverage. The texture was soft, a little dusty in the pan, but it applied evenly, built up easily, and blended out without issue. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before starting to fade visibly.

Copy Cat

Copy Cat is a muted, peachy-orange with strong, warm golden undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer, which applied evenly and blended out easily along the edges. The texture was soft, velvety, and smooth to the touch with a touch of powderiness in the pan. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before I noticed signs of fading.

Pass It On

Pass It On is a muted, medium-dark orange with warm, brownish undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had nearly full color coverage, which applied evenly and smoothly on my skin, while the pigmentation built up to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was soft, smooth, and velvety without being powdery or prone to fallout. This shade lasted nicely for eight hours on me before there was visible fading.

Bad Guy

Bad Guy is a deep red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily along the edges without the rest of the application losing coverage or intensity.

The consistency felt soft, lightly dusty in the pan, but it wasn’t prone to fallout during application. I’d recommend using a lighter hand initially and adding more pressure as necessary, as the pigmentation stretched out a lot. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

-

The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing." The way the Pressed Pigments differ is that they're not intended for usage on the immediate eye area.

The majority of the shades are semi-opaque to opaque in coverage, blend out fairly well, and can sometimes be a bit drier/more powdery compared to typical matte shades. They often wear eight to nine hours on me before fading, but many shades in the Pressed Pigment family leave some staining behind.

Duh

Duh is a pale gold glitter with a mix of particle sizes and depths; the smaller glitter particles seemed to be closer to white gold with some shift, while the larger hexagon-shaped glitter seemed to be more of a straightforward yellow gold. The glitter was suspended in a translucent base, so it was not fully opaque, which was on par with the formula.

The more emollient texture helped to keep most of the glitter together and ensured better-than-average adhesion to skin, but there can be light fallout depending on application method, blending, and time worn. As a cheek highlighter, there was half a dozen or so particles (per cheek) that traveled within an eight-hour wear time.

Please keep in mind that this product is not for use on the eye area; see this warning for more information. I, along with others, sound like broken records, but it would be great if ColourPop would keep their Pressed Glitters out of the eyeshadow palettes!

Not OK

Not OK is a rich, golden copper with strong, warm undertones and a lightly sparkled, metallic finish. The color coverage was opaque in a single layer, which applied smoothly and evenly on my lid. The consistency was lightly creamy, not too dense nor too loosely-pressed in the pan, so it was easy to work with, blended out easily, and didn’t have issues with fall out. It lasted well for eight hours before creasing slightly on me.

Ditchin' U

Ditchin’ U is a bright, medium copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had a creamier, smooth texture that felt almost like a cream-to-powder formula based on the amount of slip present in the pan.

A single application of the eyeshadow yielded opaque color payoff in one go, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out fairly well along the edges. I’ve noticed that the more emollient (but powder!) formulas can show some translucency when they’re spread out along an area, which this one did a bit. I like using flat, synthetic brushes for application and subtle diffusing to minimize unnecessary movement. This shade stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours with slight fallout over time.

In Bold

In Bold is a medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had barley-there multi-colored shimmer over a more matte finish, so it functioned like a matte would in practice as it was hard to see any shimmering effect in person.

The texture was soft, thin without being too dry or difficult to blend out, and sat well on bare skin. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which lasted well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

TTYN

TTYN is a medium-dark copper with warm, rusty red undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture felt more emollient, almost too slippery, and it worked better with flat, synthetic brushes or fingertips to ensure even coverage. Fluffier brushes seemed to push the product out a little too much, which created unevenness. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours before creasing slightly on me.

Nah, ColourPop is the “broken record” with their being tone deaf to so many calling them out for their inclusion of pressed glitters in EYESHADOW palettes. Perhaps if all who are against them including these in almost every new palette scooped those out into baggies and sent said baggies to ColourPop HQ, then they might finally listen to all of us! Between that and so many of their palettes looking like dupes of one another, I’m really getting tired of this once shining star of a brand.

I’ve actually thought about scooping out those glitters to get them out of my palettes. Mailing them back to them is an interesting idea! This palette is so unoriginal, I don’t understand why they released it.

No need to scoop it out: you can usually pop the glitter pans right out! Colourpop pans in palettes are usually held down with magnets, not glue. It’s why if I absolutely love the palette except for that one glitter, I’ll pull the trigger anyway BC it’s a cinch to reorganize the shadow pans.

It would have made more sense to call Duh shadow Not Ok instead, since Duh is not okay for the eye area. Better yet, leave not-ok-for-eye-area shades out of eyeshadow palettes! 🤨

I was going to buy the BFF set that’s part of the Lilac group because it’s purple and then realized that these are the same items I’ve already bought. I use the Cry Baby liner on the lower lid a lot.

I love Christine’s eye look! For me, the autumnal color selection really hit the spot! Love the oranges, coppers, reds, and how the browns are not orange or red toned. I think the packaging should feature autumn leaves instead of flowers and leopard to make the packaging look a little distinctive.

A great, perfectly reasonable palette – except that we have seen these shades over and over again.
Some lovely shimmery bronzey shades here and a pretty eye look Christine.

Why don’t they just have a pan full of shards of glass in each palette? Do they want people to lose eyeballs because of their silly inclusion of unsafe glitters?

Surprised I actually like this one. Yes, CP palettes are beginning to be like Five European Countries in Two and One a Half Days, Travel with Gonzo Tours!!! We are tired. Weary. But, the mattes in this one are quite subdued and muted. The shimmers aren’t OTT. Glitter deletion would be greatly appreciated. And I personally dislike having a SSS in there, collecting dust-off from the other pans. But I think this is a far better subdued fall offering than I expected. It’s a kinda maybe for me. Including the palette comparisons in a review is brilliant. Thanks.
