ColourPop So Very Lovely Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

So Very Lovely

ColourPop So Very Lovely 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new palette that really feels like it straddles the traditional colors of spring and summer, so it actually seemed like a very well-timed release. It included six matte eyeshadows and six shimmer eyeshadows with no pressed glitters (but three pressed pigments if that’s a concern). Overall, the palette was pigmented, blendable, and easy to use with a few shades being more semi-opaque or a touch harder to blend.

Lace Up

Lace Up is a light, peachy gold with strong, warm undertones and faint pink pearl. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was easy to work with on bare skin. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$4.50/0.05 oz. - $90.00 Per Ounce

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.

Organza

Craft Works

Craft Works is a medium, peachy orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, lightly powdery but dense enough not to be prone to sheering out, while the eyeshadow still blended out well along the edges. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

Fringed

Fringed is a light-medium, golden pewter with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that was best applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush to get even coverage and minimal (to no) fallout. The texture was lightly emollient to the touch, more loosely-pressed but not dry. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Macaroon

Macaroon is a brighter, medium lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was somewhat powdery, though more substantial, so it managed to retain most of its opacity when applied and blended out on bare skin. This shade showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear.

Eyelet

Eyelet is a medium, orange-coral with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, while the texture was slightly thinner and stiffer, so it could have been more blendable. There was a little bit of fallout during application, too, and I found it was more forgiving of texture when used with an eyeshadow primer. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

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.

Rose Ave is a muted, medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without issue.
