Colourpop Cosmetics Pressed Powder Shadows

By: Amanda V.

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. 

 Unedited, Single finger swatches! do you see this beam?! Colourpop's Metallic and shimmer shadows are out of this world. From Top to Bottom: Let Me Explain, Take It Slow, Liar Liar, You Know The Drill, High Strung, Come and Get It, Milli.

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. 

 These neutral Mattes ARE A DREAM!!! From Top to Bottom: Wake Up Call, Bel Air, Wait For It, Get Out, Backseat, Goody Two Shoes (I highly recommend this sultry metallic gunmetal shade to everyone, it reflects beautifully and is perfect for a summer smokey eye!)

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.)
