Colourpop Cosmetics, who are known for their super affordable creamy shadows, highlighters and liquid lippies finally released pressed powder eyeshadows earlier this year. Being the fangirl that I am for this brand, I picked up a few and they did not disappoint. At just 5 bucks a pop, these eyeshadow pans are a pretty good steal to add to your collection. Some of the shimmers and metallics can double as a highlight. They blend really well without skipping which is what i loved the most. Of course they have a bit of fallout, just about every eyeshadow does but thats nothing a a quick swipe of a wipe can't fix.
I was actually surprised to see that the matte shadows not only showed up with a single finger swatch but also blended well with a brush. I've had many past experiences with inexpensive mattes, they tend to go on like chalk and not blend at all. These blended like a creamy dream. I've worn these for a full day and with the right eye primer, they last quite a long time.
As far as these pressed eye shadows go, they are an 11/10. Luxe quality at the perfect price. Colourpop.com is currently having a promo, 3 eye shadows for $10 and FREE DOMESTIC SHIPPING IN THE US!!! If you're someone like me, who prefers not to spend too much on shadows because its what I use the least on myself, this is a perfect go to. This is also great for teens and the MUA beginners who are looking to bulid their kit. I only knocked out half of a star because i feel that the processing prior to shipping takes FOREVER!!! (I'm annoyingly impatient, but then again since shipping is free I shouldn't be complaining.)
