Cherish

ColourPop Cherish 5-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, warmer-toned color story that included two matte shades, one sparkly matte shade, and two shimmer shades. All five shades had full color payoff, while the textures varied from shade to shade but tended to be more prone to fallout, so they would benefit from an eyeshadow primer and/or dampened brushes (for the shimmers) to minimize some of the issues I experienced.

Destiny

Destiny is a light peach with moderate, warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had less warm tones in its base than it was in the shimmer, which was more golden. The consistency was more loosely-pressed and on the drier side, so there was light fallout when I blended out this shade on my lid. It had opaque coverage that showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear.

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.

Adore

Adore is a very light brown with subtle, warmer rosy undertones and a matte finish. The texture was moderately powdery, which resulted in some fallout during application if I wasn’t careful. It had opaque coverage that applied evenly and was blendable, though. This shade lasted decently for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

ColourPop Faith Pressed Powder Pigment

ColourPop Faith Pressed Powder Pigment

Faith

Faith is a medium red with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, moderately dense texture that had light slip to it, which helped the larger particle shimmer bind with the underlying color and adhere better to bare skin. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

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.

NOTICE: All products categorized under “Pigment” carry a warning in the US that the
product is “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.” Brands in the US typically market these
products as “Pigments” (instead of “Eyeshadow”), and there is often a warning on the back of packaging or
the label. The product includes color additives that are not approved for usage on the eyes per the
FDA.
Some color additives in “Pigments” have no usage restrictions in the EU, per CosIng, and can be used on the
eyes. We recommend checking ingredients to confirm current safety assessment/restrictions:

Precious

Precious is a brighter, coppery-red with warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle over more of a matte finish. The sparkles had a tendency to flyaway or disperse too readily away from the underlying base, so it was harder to control and prevent fallout both during application as well as during wear. The base was opaque in coverage, and the texture was blendable without being too powdery. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Forever

Forever is a medium-dark brown with warmer undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. The texture was soft, smooth, and lightly powdery but not to the point of being an issue. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
