ColourPop Ballad Eyeshadow Palette Evaluation & Swatches

ballad

ColourPop Ballad 5-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($ 10.00 for 0.15 oz.) Is a new palette that includes a real mat, two sparkling mats, and two shimmers. The Color History worked as a standalone palette as there was a mix of depths and finishes at a high level, although a preferred transition tint may be required.

I felt that Novel was extra warm tinted and should have been more neutral or cooler to match the rest of the palette. The quality was decent, and unless you care about the implications and inaccuracies of the brand’s sparkly mats, I imagine they would live up to expectations. If these are deal breakers, this palette contains two of them!

Novel (ballad)

Novel (ballad) is a very light peach with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was a little drier with the tendency for the shimmer to loosen somewhat from the base, causing slight precipitations during mixing. It had an opaque paint coverage that resulted in semi-opaque pigmentation so I would recommend using a damp brush to work with this shade. After seven and a half hours there were signs of use.

Formula overview

$ 4.50 / 0.05 oz. – – $ 90.00 per ounce

The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula should be “highly pigmented” and have an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-lasting” and “easily sticks to the eyes”. Most shades of color have a semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation that is easy to apply to bare skin, fades out easily and lasts seven to eight hours.

The matte eye shadows tend to be a little more powdery in the pan, though they’re soft and finely ground, while the shimmers have a creamier, denser consistency. Occasionally, the sparkling or metallic shades are easier to apply with your fingertips or a damp brush.

theatre

theatre is a light to medium-sized taupe with cooler undertones and a slightly warmer, olive-metallic sheen. It had rich color coverage with a smooth, moderately dense texture that was soft without being powdery, so it adhered well to bare skin but was well hidden along the edges. It stayed on well for eight hours before visibly fading.

fate

fate is a medium-dark purple-taupe with cooler undertones and a faint sheen over a matte finish. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation with a slightly powdery texture that was slightly thin. There were slight failures during mixing and it was difficult to keep the sparkles in place so they tended to diffuse over other areas of the eye. It took a decent seven and a half hours before it faded a little.

prose

prose is a medium-dark black with cooler undertones and a moderate amount of silver and a greenish-blue-green sheen on a matte base. The texture was smooth, velvety with a slight powderiness so it didn’t turn out as light as it could have been, but when mixed the glitters displaced so easily that it was difficult to maintain precision without even minimal mixing and use smaller tools. It had an opaque paint coverage that lasted well for seven and a half hours but failed over time.
