Happy Monday everyone!
I hope your weeks are all off to a great start. Today was a state holiday here in Massachusetts so I spent my day taking blog pictures and relaxing.
Today's post is part 2 of my review of the Colourpop Pressed Eyeshadows. I talked pretty extensively about my thoughts on the packaging, formula, and my general thoughts of the shadows in my Part 1 post, so today I'll solely be focusing on the next four shades I purchased. Be sure to check out my previous post if you're interested!
The second palette I created contains the shades Just in Time, Team Captain, Paper Tiger, and Sideline.
Just in Time: White golden shade with a subtle sheen. This shade has a satin finish and feels silky smooth. I like using it all over the lid as well as for an inner corner highlight.
Team Captain: Mossy warm-toned green shade with a matte finish. This shade is described as a medium olive on Colourpop's website which is fairly accurate. When finger-swatched, Team Captain looks slightly disappointing in terms of pigmentation. However, I don't experience much difficulty when applying this shade with a brush over primer.
Paper Tiger: Bright, sunshiney mustard shade with a matte finish. This shade is one of my favorites. I don't usually go for yellow tones, but Paper Tiger is very on-trend and easy to incorporate. It looks so stunning when applied above a crease shade with a variety of different eyeshadow looks.
Sideline: Absolutely gorgeous duochrome terracotta shade with light green shift. This is another of my favorite shades. I love throwing this on my lid with a warm brown crease shade to create a simple yet dimensional eyeshadow look. If you're looking to dip your toe into the duochrome waters, I would highly suggest trying out Sideline.
Overall, I'm really impressed with the Colourpop Pressed Shadows and will definitely be purchasing more in the future! I think the satin and duochrome formulas are my favorite out of the different formulas I've tried thus far. However, I've been pleasantly surprised at how well the mattes blend and their level of pigmentation as well. I fully expect that I'll have to pick up a larger magnetic palette to allow my collection to grow!
