Through My Eyes

Colour Pop Through My Eyes 16-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($22.00 for 0.64 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette featuring 16 shades across neutrals, corals, and a few pops of color. I liked the color scheme and felt that it worked well together, while the quality of the eyeshadows was fairly good, though there were a few shades that could have been better (most notably, Mesmer-eyez). As a heads up, the following shades are “not intended for use in the immediate eye area”: Mesmer-eyez, Lomo, Divina, and Missbehave, and I experienced light staining with a few shades in the palette (noted within the respective shade’s review), which washed off with my morning cleanser.

Lucido

Lucido is a bright, light-medium gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had rich pigmentation in one layer, and the color went on evenly and blended out nicely along the edges. The texture was soft, a little more loosely-pressed than ideal (easy to pick up too much product) but “melted” on my lid to give a smooth sheen. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably on me.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.05 oz. - $100.00 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.

Wild Soul

Wild Soul is a rich, deep yellow with strong, orange undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well as it didn’t sheer out too readily. The eyeshadow had a soft, velvety texture that was easy to work with and didn’t give me trouble with fallout. It lasted beautifully for eight and a half hours on my lid before fading a touch.

Mesmer-eyez

Mesmer-eyez is a medium-dark copper with warm, reddish undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had medium, buildable pigmentation, though it needed to be applied with fingertips or a dampened brush to yield opaque coverage. The consistency was noticeably sparkly, so it didn’t feel as smooth as other shades, and felt emollient by touch. This shade stayed on well for eight hours but had some fallout over time.

Sandalwood

Sandalwood is a light-medium, peachy beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and was easy to blend out along the edges without losing its intensity. The texture was soft, velvety, and smooth without being too powdery. It wore well for eight hours on me before it started to fade noticeably.

In a Wink

In a Wink is a light-medium peach with strong, warm orange undertones and a mostly matte finish. There were very fine golden shimmers strewn throughout, but it appeared matte in practice. It had opaque color payoff that applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even application that was easy to blend out. The texture was soft without being too powdery or too dusty in the pan. It lasted well for eight hours on me before there was any noticeable fading.

Euphoric is a vibrant, medium-dark orange with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, while the eyeshadow had a soft, lightly powdery texture, that was blendable and easy to work with. I expected some fallout during application but was pleasantly surprised by a very minimal amount. This shade stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Canela is a medium, reddish brown with warm undertones and flecks of small, golden sparkle over a matte finish. It had rich color payoff with a soft, velvety texture that was blendable and easy to work with, though a lot of the sparkles didn’t seem to translate on the lid (but I also didn’t notice much fallout). It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Lomo is a bright, coral-red with a faint, cooler pink sheen. It had excellent pigmentation with a lightly creamy, smooth consistency that applied evenly and blended out well on my skin. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading a touch, though it did stain my lid space until the next day (when I washed my face in the morning).

Emerald Dream

Emerald Dream is a bright, medium green with subtle, cool undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation that adhered evenly and smoothly to my lid. The consistency was lightly creamy, dense without being too thick or too firmly pressed in the pan, so I was able to pick up the product well with my brush. It did apply best with patting and pressing motions, though, to ensure evenness. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit, and there was a very slight amount of fallout over time.

Divina

Divina is a deep burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. For this type of shade, the texture was softer and more finely-milled than anticipated but was still a little drier overall. It had nearly opaque color payoff that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top. As I applied the color, it had a tendency to darken slightly and took more effort to diffuse/blend out but wasn’t too challenging. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours on me, and it stained very faintly (gone after washing my face the next morning).

I’m always a little flabbergasted when you have warnings about eyeshadows not being able to be used in the eye area when they are part of an eye palette. I know that it’s about safety and laws, but then I think to myself they shouldn’t have them in the palette then. Otherwise, the palette has a nice and somewhat unique color scheme, but with the warnings and trying to stay on a no-buy of palettes for a while, I’ll have to just admire this one from a distance.

From what I understand, it’s seems like it is just not the US (FDA) that allows those ingredients for eyeshadows… but totally fine in Canada, EU, etc. I think one brand literally wrote fine for everyone else’s eyeballs… except US eyes, lol.

I think it’s the potential to stain the eyes. So it’s labeled a pigment instead of an eyeshadow. People choose to put them on their eyes at their own risk.

Some readers have mentioned that pink/red eyeshadows can cause hives/eczema/rashes for them, so I think it’s more than just staining – I believe it’s a higher incidence of it occurring with those ingredients vs. typical ingredients that are okay to use there.

This is a quite a large palette and you have done really well to review it so quickly Christine. I feel like there are a few shades that duplicate each other here (Mesmer-eyez and Muse) and quite a few of the bright pink and orange shades. I am not sure if this is a ‘must have’ palette because most of the shades here are pretty popular and live in lots of different palettes that are in the market now.

Is it just me, or does this and the Salvaje palette look terribly similar? Plus another one or two of CP’s e/s palettes?
Anywho, I think this one has something about it that *does* look more interesting to me! But I cannot quite pin down what that *something* is. Perhaps it’s making me think of a smaller, more shimmer infused Subculture Palette, idk?

Oh, they’re definitely in the same vein. I don’t think one needs all of them, but I did find they came together in slightly different ways… but if you have the more differentiating shades in one palette or another, the rest run together.

It is not just you. I’m not sure what’s going on with CP that so many of their recent palettes look so similar. I’d love to see a greater variety!

They have too many collaborators with similar tastes. That’s a clear sign that they need to chill out on the number of collaborations.

CP certainly knows how to churn out winners. But I get rather exhausted reading how many CP dupes alone there are for virtually every shade. This would make some great looks., but I’m overduped. Sidney Grace stole my heart from CP, methinks.

There’s only one of the eye shadows that tempt me in this palette. I’m going to study the dupe list to see if I have a dupe, if not I suppose I can live without it. The shade in question is Divina.
It seems to be quite a nice palette, but with my low buy and the fact that I have dupes for a lot of the colours and have too many palettes as it is it’s a rather easy pass.
I also dislike having to pay the post company something like $7-10 for them taking the tax money which would amount to maybe $1 or less.

I don’t need this palette (and won’t be getting it), and it does seem similar to many other CP palettes, but I think this one is especially nice in the fairly even color steps from true purple through a plummy muted red, all the way to pure medium yellow; that plus the wonderful taupe brown makes this particular palette a winner in my opinion.

It’s a nice collection but I’m just exhausted. I can’t work up the enthusiasm or desire to get it.

You nailed it, I too am exhausted, from everything. All the new perfumes, the new eye shadow palettes, lip sticks, eye liners, I could go on and on. They are saturating the market and driving some of us away.
