Perception

Colour Pop Perception 16-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($23.00 for 0.62 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that contains 16 shades from warm beige to deep burgundy and a mix of finishes from matte to metallic. The quality was good across the board with most shades applying better on the lid than merely swatched (particularly true with the metallics, which I found applied better on the lid as the area was smaller and my natural inclination toward technique was to press and pat on). It’s a versatile palette with some pops of color that integrated well with the other shades in different ways.

Unbothered

Unbothered is a soft, golden beige with a subtle, pinky-peach shift and a metallic finish. I could see a faint pinky shift to it at times when I swatched it on my arm, but every time I used it on the lid, it just looked like a pale gold/very warm beige on me. The consistency was soft, more loosely pressed but easy enough to pickup and apply to the lid. I noticed that it adhered well but was a bit harder to diffuse across a larger area. The eyeshadow stayed on well for eight hours before it started to fade 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.

TF

TF is a medium gold with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture felt like it had a fair amount of slip, so it felt almost cream-like to the touch, but I struggled a bit to get it go on evenly on my arm, which was rather dry, whereas on my eye lid, which has more of a normal-to-dry skin type, it went on exceptionally well. The pigmentation was just about opaque in a single layer when I tried it on my lid. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Titus

Titus is a dark, grayish-taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had opaque color coverage that applied well to bare skin with even application with edges that blended out with little work. The texture was soft, slightly dusty in the pan, but it didn’t have fallout concerns during application. This shade lasted for just over eight hours on me.

Stallion

Stallion is a deep black with subtle, cool undertones and flecks of blue sparkle over a mostly matte finish. I could only get the bluish tones of the black to come through when the shade was diffused and blended out quite a bit (and couldn’t be touching anything remotely warm-toned!), so it definitely performed more like a black eyeshadow. The texture was soft, slightly dusty in the pan, but blendable on the lid. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably on me.

Spill the Tea

Spill the Tea is a medium copper with soft, rosy undertones and a metallic finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer when I applied it to my lid, but it was slightly less pigmented on my arm (which is noticeably drier than my lid), which I find can sometimes occur when an eyeshadow has a lot of shimmer and more slip in the formula. This shade felt smooth and more silicone-heavy to the touch, but it adhered well to bare skin and was easy to blend out. This shade lasted on well for eight hours before it started to fade on me.

Diva

Diva is a rich, medium-dark copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistencyw as soft, more loosely-pressed and applied best in a patting and pressing motion on my lids. My arm is rather dry (much drier than my eyelid), and the eyeshadow definitely adhered more smoothly and evenly to my lid as a result. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, and while it didn’t need to be used wet, for a very intense shine, that’d be the way to go. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading slightly.

14

14 is a medium blue with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It was a “warmer” blue and had a faded quality to it, so it wasn’t as dupeable as anticipated. The texture was soft, smooth, and moderately firm in the pan, but it picked up well with a pushing motion and applied well to bare skin without having to go back and intensify it. It had opaque coverage that lasted for eight hours on me.

The consistency was soft, smooth, and not too powdery or too dusty in the pan, so while it blended out with ease, it didn’t have tons of fallout. It also did not cause other shades to turn gray when layered over them. It had opaque pigmentation that wore well for eight hours on me.

Sassy

Sassy is a medium-dark, reddish-brown base with green-to-teal shifting shimmer. It had good color coverage but applied best over a primer or with a dampened brush for really maximum coverage and shine, though I was able to just apply two layers and get good coverage that way. It was also the type of color and finish where any lack of opacity wasn’t as noticeable once blended out. The texture was soft and smooth with a light creaminess to it. This shade stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading.

September

September is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The pigmentation was semi-opaque and buildable, and I think the lower sheen of the finish made it necessary to use with a dampened brush to get it to really pop and mesh well with the other metallic/shimmer shades in the palette. The consistency was firmer, thinner, and a bit drier compared to most of the shimmer shades in this palette. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Played Out

Played Out is a deep, red-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, moderately firm texture that was firm enough not to yield any powderiness in the pan, but not so firm that it was hard to blend out. It took slightly more effort to diffuse along the edges compared to the other mattes in the palette, though. On me, it lasted for just over eight hours on me.

I think I have a dupe for every color. Is it just me, or does it seem like all the newly released palettes have so many of the same colors?

It’s what’s in trend now, so it makes sense. Plus, you can only make so many variations of a warm brown or metallic gold. Cool tone shades aren’t really selling right now, so the brands are going with where the money is at. I definitely get it, but it is hard for makeup junkies. It’s truly my fault for owning so much makeup. I’m not on a no buy but there is really nothing that is catching my eye or that isn’t already in my collection.

I glad this performs well because her YouTube video announcing the collab and the intro and the look she created for the video really sold me on the palette.She named a shade Titus after her puppy that passed away while she had a dog sitter she trusted watching him😢.It was such a heartbreaking situation because he was still a pup and she thought her dog was in a safe environment.These shades were thoughtfully named and I love that.

I hope the powers that be at MAC are taking some effing notes!!! How they think they can charge almost twice as much for just 5 shades that were utter crap astounds me. I haven’t bought MAC in years and I’m still super salty about that Nicopanda and Jeremy Scott rubbish.

Anyhoo, this looks lovely! It’s a beautiful mix of shades and finishes and would suit a variety of skin tones. The palette itself is fun, I love the abstract paint print 🙂 And the price point is definitely right! I need another Colourpop palette like I need a whole in my head but I’m seriously tempted by this. It reminds me a little bit of the Violet Voss Nicol Concillio palette (which I already have) so I will have to compare the two before I take the plunge.

Great eye looks, Christine!

My husband often wonders why anyone buys brands beyond ColourPop (cheap, fairly reliable, lots of products), LOL. But yeah, I feel like budget eyeshadow has really come a long way over the last few years!

I made my first colourpop purchase back when all they had was the super shock shadows and boy have they come a long way! They have it all! They are affordable. They wear well. I agree with your husband because you can get a lot of high end looks out of their palettes and they are so fun! I think it’s a great brand.

Wow – this is a stupendous palette. I thought the other day when I just saw the swatches that it would be not so good, but how wrong was I?
This is a fantastic palette, full of beautiful shades and I just love it.

Thanks Christine!! I have the saint and sinner and I never use it. I just don’t know what to do with it. I love the shayla palette and am tempted but there’s quite a few [email protected] dupes so I don’t know!

When I see the swatches, I am thinking this palette looks so familiar to something I have. YASSSSSS, KVD Saint & Sinner!!!!! Exactly!!! That’s why it looks so familiar. I almost placed my order, now I don’t need to.

Wow it is so good to know that these perform much better on the eye than they swatch on the arm. Even though the color scheme of the palette is pretty common, it is so cohesive that I want to add it to my collection. I love having workhorse palettes that do not need reinforcements and can deliver multiple looks alone without having to pull shades from other palettes. Looks like it’d be fun to travel with too. I love colourpop! 😀 😀

A few months ago, Sephora started to carry a small selection of Colour Pop shadows and I was hoping that this was just the beginning and that they’d eventually carry more and more (a palette like this, for example). Instead, there is now NO Colour Pop available there at all. I’m not sure I’d be all over this palette, though seeing the “groupings” that Christine has done in her subsequent post, I just might be. Christine, as so many others have said, this new “feature” you’ve created is such a fantastic tool for those of us who don’t have the eye or the creativity you do….what a great way to help us all get the most from palettes (pre and self-made) that we own.

I’m new to ColourPop and I absolutely love it, but the shades seem to skew heavily toward golds, burgundy, orange, brown, and pink. I can’t seem to find a good range of blues, greens, and teals. Any suggestions?

I think Coloured Raine’s Cheers to the Beauty is rather similar to this. While not an exact dupe, it gave me enough of the same vibe to prevent pulling the trigger on this, even though I may eventually, to support Shayla (if it’s marked down later and not sold out!).

I’m not surprised that it received a good rating, but I am surprised that it’s so dark. The orange-copper-russet eye look looks great, but I found the other look and the shadows rather dark (more of a fall palette for me). I almost bought this today and after seeing this, I may change my mind (as the swatches also revealed to me that I have most of these colors in a similar depth of darkness, if that makes any sense). Thanks Christine! So glad I saw this flash on the upper banner and checked it out.
