As if I didn’t already adore the brand enough, the new Colourpop pressed powder eyeshadows are actually blowing my mind.
I bit the bullet…
I will admit it, I put off purchasing these bad boys for a little while after they released at the beginning of this year. The thoughts going through my head consisted of… Do I really need more eyeshadows? Nope. Is it really necessary when I have tons of eyeshadow palettes? Nope. But do I adore everything Colourpop releases? YES.
My first order
I had an empty Z-palette that was just begging to be used so I took the plunge and placed my first order of the pressed shadows. Colourpop was (and still is for the month of May) doing a buy 2, get 1 free deal with their eyeshadows so I figured it was the perfect time to place an order. That brought the $5 pans down to about $3.33!
Love at first swatch
From the very first shadow I swatched I knew I was going to love these. The formula of these eyeshadows is super high quality and just overall perfection. The mattes are extremely easy to work with. They’re buttery matte goodness that blend to perfection. I’m a shimmer lover but these matte shades got me. The shimmers are also amazing! They are extremely pigmented and creamy. Most of them are very metallic with the exception of the duo-chrome shades. Those are a little bit more firm than the regular shimmers but still gorgeous!

So I’m totally going crazy over these. The shade range is amazing and the quality of these shadows is honestly better than what I was expecting.
Don’t forget they’re buy 2 get 1 free, so now is the perfect time to try some out!
