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.
The average rating based on all reviewed shade(s) in this formula is shown below.
Highly pigmented shadow that applies evenly and feels ultra-velvety and silky. This long wearing formula contains a unique combination of softer powders which adheres easily to the eyes, gives a soft focus effect, and blends smoothly and evenly.

This color was a big surprise for me. I expected standart light warm brown (I own several of colourpop palletes and almost every pallete has that shade) but on me it looks more cooltoned and almost green. I like it but it can be muddy. If it is the case for you just pair it with the royal jewels.

Loved how easily this applied, but holy cannoli did it MOVE! It's slipped all around my lid and transferred in my crease like crazy. I have hooded lids so a little transfer is pretty common as my day goes, but this basically stamped silver all over my lid. I'll have to use pretty sparingly to avoid a repeat.

This is a beautiful color that blends out wonderfully on the skin and on top of a primer. It's fantastic for being really striking, sheered out to warm up a look, or on its own. It has a lot of powdery kickback like most CP shadows, but that doesn't bother me. On the face, it's just so, so beautiful and has a lot of depth.

My favourite eyeshadow from Colour Pop! Glass Bull is a gorgeous unique shade that can be used on its own or to transform other shades! Semi-sheer duochrome that looks gorgeous layered over other eyeshadows, or just sheered out on the lid! Side note - in swatches it looks more blue-toned (and cooler) than in the pan.

A unique duo-chrome shade, Tea Garden shimmers golden green, with a warm orange-brown base. The texture is a bit rough, but not so much that it's unwieldy or unpleasant. This is a favourite ColourPop shade of mine. If you like warm browns and greens, this might be for you.
