Boudoir Noir

Colour Pop Boudoir Noir 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition 12-pan palette that includes a mix of matte, shimmer, and glitter shades. The overall color story had a more muted, yellow-to-olive leaning to it, which made it a little less redundant compared to other neutral palettes released by the brand.

The mattes were often pigmented but moderately powdery, so I’d definitely recommend applying one’s eyeshadow ahead of base products. The shimmers were drier and/or more loosely-pressed, so they were also prone to fallout and were better applied with a dampened brush.

Deja Vu

Deja Vu is a light-medium yellow with strong, warm orange undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, more velvety texture that was lightly powdery in the pan but only had light fallout during application if I wasn’t careful to tap off excess. It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.

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.

It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.

ColourPop Bedtime Story Pressed Powder Shadow

ColourPop Bedtime Story Pressed Powder Shadow

ColourPop Bedtime Story Pressed Powder Shadow

Bedtime Story

Bedtime Story has a transparent base and is chocked full of smaller particle iridescent glitter and darker, gold glitter with some larger, hexagon-shaped iridescent glitter. It did contain plastic (PET) glitter and came with a warning that it was not intended for use around the eye area, so I tested it as a cheek highlighter only. The texture was more emollient and could be pushed around in the pan but felt lightly tacky and had good dispersion when applied to the skin. It had medium to semi-opaque “coverage” from the amount of glitter in it. There was noticeable migration after seven hours of wear.

Vibin’

Vibin’ is a medium-dark brown with moderate, warm undertones and faint flecks of gold micro-sparkle over a matte finish. The texture was thinner and more firmly-pressed into the pan, which made it harder to pick up product and seemed to make the product more prone to darkening unevenly when applied to bare skin. It had opaque color payoff that wore well for eight hours before fading visibly, though there was fallout during application and later on during wear.

Nap

Nap is a medium, golden bronze with muted, warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. The eyeshadow had rich color payoff paired with a slightly drier consistency that was hard to apply to bare skin evenly–I had a ton of fallout as the product didn’t want to stick. It was better applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush. It lasted nicely for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.

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.

Hot Toddy

Hot Toddy is a deep, olive green with muted, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage. The texture was slightly thinner, moderately powdery, and didn’t blend out as easily as I expected. It stayed on decently for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
