It’s no secret around these parts that I’ve been quite disappointed in the past with Colourpop. I’ve found quite bad inconsistencies with the quality of their products (from not great to worse) and their customer service extremely lacking. Nonetheless, when their Pressed Eyeshadows were released they caught my attention, and after quite a few positive reviews I cracked and purchased some! I’ve had these for a couple of months now and have been playing around with them for that time and finally have my review prepared!
I picked up ten eyeshadow shades, one matte and nine shimmers. I did this purely because on a daily basis, I tend to be always in a rush and quickly put a matte into the crease and a shimmer over the lid.
The swatches as you can see are hit and miss – some are more chunky or chalky than others, High Strung is by far the standout with the pigmentation – the shade is like butter and swatches like heaven!
Whilst the swatches on my arm are not the greatest, I’ll admit, how they wear on the eyes are how these shadows really shine. They last all day with only the tiniest bit of fading, wearing a lot better than some other eyeshadow formulas I’ve tried!
I hate to admit it, but Colourpop have won me over with this one! I didn’t want to like these eyeshadows but I absolutely fell in love and have been using these constantly since I first received them in the mail!
