ColourPop Orchid You Not Eyeshadow Palette Evaluation & Swatches

Orchid You Not

ColourPop Orchid You Not 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($14.00 for 0.32 oz.) is an orchid-themed palette that included five matte shades and four shimmer shades. The quality was consistent with past ColourPop releases; the mattes were lightly powdery but pigmented, blendable, and easy enough to work with, while some of the shimmers were more loosely-pressed or drier, so there was potential for fallout. I was happy to discover that the shades didn’t seem too redundant once I had applied them, which can be an issue with more monochromatic palettes.

Pretty One

Pretty One is a light lavender with warm undertones and warmer, contrasting gold sparkle. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a moderately soft, somewhat drier texture that resulted in some frostiness when applied dry. It was smoother and less prone to fallout when applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush. It wore nicely for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

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.

The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too powdery nor too firmly-pressed into the pan. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

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.

Nuh Uh

Nuh Uh is a rich burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that could be built up with a second layer, though it was very soft to the point where it had some powderiness and light fallout during blending, so I’d recommend using a light hand and gently building up to avoid fallout. It lasted well for eight and a half hours and left a faint stain behind.
