Pretty Guardian

Colour Pop Pretty Guardian 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($20.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new palette from the brand’s upcoming Sailor Moon collection (which launches February 20th at 10AM PT). It features nine eyeshadows, two Pressed Pigments (Tuxedo Rose and Miracle Romance), and one Pressed Glitter (Mare Serenitatis).

The palette contained several mattes with sparkle throughout them, so those who don’t mind a bit of sparkle fallout or a few random sparkles that diffuse and blend with some imprecision will enjoy the palette more than those who like true mattes. They’re not the worst sparkle-over-matte formula I’ve come across, but they still have some inherent issues with fallout and dispersion. The mattes also seemed a little more powdery with the exception of Miracle Romance.

It is a palette I’d apply prior to base products so that any fallout can easily be wiped away.  Otherwise, I found it easy enough to work with as the mattes applied evenly, blended out nicely, and maintained their intensity/depth and the shimmers were workable. I’ve noticed some of the brand’s more recent shimmers seem a little drier, so they apply easiest with a dampened brush or fingertip; this was the case for Fullmoon but Luna and Silver Crystal I could use dry.

The cover of the palette features lenticular print that shifts between two images from what I saw (the blush compacts shift between three), which more of the standout as it’s not something often seen in beauty and not something I’ve seen from the brand before.

Shining Moon

Shining Moon is a light-medium, yellowed peach with warm undertones paired with a sparkling, matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage with a moderately powdery texture, which had some fallout and was prone to sheering out. I had to be careful to press this shade into place during application to manage the fallout. There were only a few stray sparkles that seemed to translate during application and were gone by the time I removed my makeup. The color stayed on nicely for seven hours before fading a bit.

FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and characteristics (like scent).

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.

Twilight Flash

Twilight Flash is a light orange with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. The texture was more powdery, though it was dense and more substantial, so while there was fallout during application and some excess kicked up in the pan, it had nearly opaque coverage even after blending it out. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably on me.

Silver Crystal

Silver Crystal is a pale pink base with a subtle, golden sheen. The texture was smooth to the touch with moderate slip and wasn’t too firmly nor too loosely-pressed into the pan. It had nearly opaque color payoff that adhered well to bare skin and blended out well along the edges. It lasted well for eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.

Moon Castle

Moon Castle is a medium-dark peach with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, moderately powdery but blendable and managed to retain its pigmentation and near-full opacity when applied to bare skin. The eyeshadow started to show signs of fading on me after eight hours of wear.

Fullmoon

Fullmoon is a light-medium gold with warmer, slightly more orange undertones with lighter, almost green-gold shimmer. It had medium, buildable coverage but was best applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush for more semi-opaque to opaque coverage. The texture was soft to the touch but slightly drier and more prone to light fallout during application. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly on me.

Silver Millennium

Silver Millennium is a pale, white gold with a smooth, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which didn’t build up much. The texture was smooth, emollient, and was consistent with the Super Shock Shadow formula.

As it was more metallic, it had a bit of a wetter feel, and I didn’t feel like it build up as well as it seemed to thicken and look patchy when I tried for a second or third layer. It stayed on well for 10 hours without creasing or fading. For those who don’t mind or prefer this type of shade as a layering or accent shade, it should work just fine for that purpose.

Luna (Sailor Moon)

Luna (Sailor Moon) is a medium lavender with subtle, cool undertones and cooler pink-to-blue shifting pearl. The texture was more loosely-pressed into the pan, so it worked better with a flat, synthetic brush and then patted on or with a dampened brush; the latter ensured there was no chance for fallout. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer. There were slight signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

Mare Serenitatis

Mare Serenitatis is a medium-dark pink base with moderate, warm undertones paired with flecks of larger, gold glitter. It contains plastic glitter, which comes with the warning that it isn’t intended to be used around the eye area. As far as the brand’s Pressed Glitters go, this actually had a significant base color that came through, so it was more like a blend of typical eyeshadow along with glitter.

It had good coverage in a single layer, but the glitter distributed a little unevenly and seemed a bit more prone to migration than Pressed Glitters I’ve tried that have a more translucent base. I’d still say vastly improved over products like it from a few years ago, but I’d still recommend using it with an adhesive base to minimize fallout/migration.

Justice

Justice is a brighter, medium yellow with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish with light micro-sparkle throughout. Some of the sparkles translated during application, even after blending and diffusing the edge of the shade, but there was light fallout/migration of the sparkles, and it wasn’t always an even spread of sparkle on the area I applied it to.

The texture was soft, not too thin, and a little powdery in the pan so I’d recommend using a lighter hand with it when initially picking up product. It had opaque coverage that lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Tuxedo Rose

Tuxedo Rose is a medium-dark pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle over a matte finish. It had excellent color payoff that applied smoothly and evenly to bare skin, while the edges diffused with ease. The texture was soft, not too firmly nor too loosely pressed into the pan, and had enough substance to work well over bare skin without sheering out too readily. The color stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit, though there was a bit of fallout over time from the small amount of particles that translated during application.

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.

Love

Love is a medium-dark pink with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish that had micro-sparkle throughout it. The consistency was moderately powdery, so you’ll want to use a lighter touch with it initially and build up coverage as necessary to avoid excess product kicked up in the pan and minimize the opportunity for fallout during application.

It had good coverage that applied evenly, blended out well, and was easy enough to work with overall. Some of the sparkles did translate onto my lid/eye area, but they didn’t distribute as evenly as an actual shimmer eyeshadow would. This type of finish is becoming more popular within ColourPop’s releases, and while some have been better than past experiences I’ve seen with sparkle-over-matte eyeshadows, they have not perfected it yet. This shade stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

Miracle Romance is a brighter, deep lavender with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that adhered evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The texture was slightly thinner compared to other mattes–though no powderiness as a result–but it blended out easily, so it didn’t end up to be a concern. It wore well for nine hours before fading and left a subtle stain after removal.

I have no idea who or what Sailor Moon is or was, but this is this first time that my reaction to a ColourPop palette is “yuck”. I think this is one of the most unappealing (to me) palettes I’ve ever seen. Hard pass!

Even though I’m 60 and know nothing about Sailor Moon, I’m very into this color story for spring and summer. There is that issue of a pressed glitter, though. I could just tape over it, I suppose. Or, better still, look in my stash for similar enough shades? Although those are likely spread over several palettes and a few singles. Too much trouble, so I’ll probably get this.

So disappointed with the color story!!
I love Sailor Moon. Either they could have gone more rainbow (in the show every planet has its own color: blue, green, red, purple…), or they could have incorporated more dark colors (name a black “Tuxedo Mask”, a grey “by moonlight”…).
This lacks contrast, plus we already have a million pink and orange palettes on the market.
The shimmers and glitters are pretty, but they could have gone much more over-the-top “moon cristal prism” with some flashy shifting shimmers, multi-colored glitter, or even holo…
A beautiful packaging but a plain selection of eyeshadows, in my opinion. Too bad, because I’d be the customer to buy this if the color scheme had a bit more wow factor!

This is exactly how I feel! The colours are just variations of each other, so no matter what you do, you’re going to get the same look, just brighter or more pastel. I like the shades individually, just not as a whole palette.

I think I’ve read every single ColourPop palette review you’ve ever posted, looking for the perfect one for my first CP purchase, and this is it!
This is the exact thing I’ve been waiting for!! ?

Sigh, I like the packaging more than the actual colours, and by packaging, I mean the box it comes in. I don’t love the image they used for the actual palette. LOL! I’m just not into bright yellows and sherbet colours anymore, even though I like the eye looks you came up with.

I wanted to love this so much, as Sailor Moon was a HUGE part of my childhood through early teen years. But lately CP has been disappointing me with their rushed releases. This could have been so much more than just Usagi/Sailor Moon with the mediocre smatterings of Luna and Tuxedo Kamen. If the blushes and ultra blotted lips get a solid ‘A’ from you, I may order those, but I can otherwise dupe the color story of this collection, especially with the ND Darya blush palette on sale this week.

I’m glad to see that most of these shades performed well. I think most people, myself included, are probably going to pick this up for the cute packaging. The color scheme is pretty and does evoke Sailor Moon/ Usagi vibes. Hopefully Colourpop decides to release smaller collections for the other Sailor Senshi. I’d love to have a 9-pan palette and a blotted lip based on Sailor Jupiter

Sailor Jupiter was my senshi twin and favorite of the inner 5, but the amazing things that could have been done with this had they included major parts of the entire series would have been amazing. I mean, can you imagine the deep, dark indigo they could have done for Mistress 9? Even as an eyeliner or especially a super shock? And the choices for the lenticular packaging seem…odd…where is the transformation? Where is her actual Sailor senshi uniform? Her crescent wand, or the locket? THOSE are what I wanted to see…not the first five minutes of the Pilot episode…

I’m about to splurge on someCreer Beaute. They do small releases of Sailir Moon cosmetics in Japan, but they’re not cheap.

This palette raises mixed feeling in me. I know Sailor Moon but that is just because I had a daughter raised during that time. I don’t have any sentimental attachment. At first glance the palette seems a bit all over the place and has two flaws for me. One is the lack of any deep, matte shade to use in transition and the other is those pesky pressed glitters that ColourPop insists on putting in every palette. I have yet to see anyone say they buy a palette for the pressed glitters and yet ColourPop insists on adding them to each palette. Now the reason I have mixed feeling! I absolutely love the eye look you did Christine. It is worth it to me to have the palette just to create that amazing spring/summer look? I don’t know. I have been on a bit of a pink kick lately and part of it comes from watching two YT videos. I hadn’t watched any YT beauty videos in awhile and so I sat down to see what was happening and
saw Kathleen Lights post Valentine pink look and then Lisa Eldridge pink look.
I loved both of them and actually went on an internet search for the Ilia Lip Pencil that Lisa used in her video. Sadly, the only place I could find it was in Canada at a site that doesn’t ship out of the country, not even to USA. So, when this launches I will have to make a decision. In the mean time, check dupes, Deborah!

Not quite sure who Sailor Moon is, but this palette is very similar to lots of others that CP has released recently – it seems like the brand is stuck on repeat – doing what Too Faced and MAC were doing a few years ago: over releasing and under performing.

I love how perfect the color story is for this! It perfectly captures that pastel 90’s vibe that comes to mind when I think of this show. My friends and I were so into it when we were kids. Hopefully this sells when and they make mini collections for the others! Jupiter was my favorite.
