Malibu Barbie

ColourPop Malibu Barbie 15-Pan Shadow Palette ($26.00 for 0.53 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette that included eight matte shades and seven shimmer shades. Most shades were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing without being a challenge to use, but there were a few shades that were more powdery or sheerer. I had the most trouble with Vintage Doll, while the others were very workable in practice.

Cali Girl

Cali Girl is a pale, white gold with warmer undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The texture was lightly emollient with a smooth feel to it, which helped it apply evenly to bare skin and have the sparkles adhere without fallout. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that stayed on nicely for eight hours.

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.

Vintage Doll

Vintage Doll is a pale pink with subtle, cool undertones and flecks of bluish-pink micro-sparkle. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a more powdery, almost chalky, consistency that made it hard to apply the product evenly. There was fallout during application, and I wasn’t able to build up the coverage. It lasted decently for seven and a half hours on me.

Let's Go Party

Let’s Go Party is a medium-dark coral-orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was somewhat powdery, which resulted in some fallout and some sheerness when blended out. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation that wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

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.

Best Coast

Best Coast is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque, buildable pigmentation with a slightly thinner, drier texture, though it wasn’t powdery and blended out without issue but was easier to work with over a primer if one had drier skin. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading and stained my lid slightly.

Malibu Memories

Malibu Memories is a light-medium blue with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that built up over primer but not bare skin. The texture was thin, slightly drier, and as a result, felt stiffer and wasn’t as blendable as ideal. There were signs of fading present after eight hours of wear.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

For nostalgia sake and color theme, I will likely buy this. I could see myself doing some very so-cal beachy looks using it. But, do I need it? Probably not.

For a bright, summery palette ColourPop has done a fairly good job on this one. I did like the neutral shades here and even the mattes are quite pigmented.

I put it in my basket and thought about it and talked myself out of it. Would I like it? Yes. Do I need it? No. My no buy is back on track.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
