ColourPop Sprinkle a Little Magic Eyeshadow Palette Assessment & Swatches

Sprinkle a Little Magic

ColourPop Sprinkle a Little Magic 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($14.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a new, limited edition nine-pan eyeshadow palette that included four matte eyeshadows and five shimmery eyeshadows. It was a green-themed color story with pops of pink/mauve throughout. The eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and easy enough to work with, though some of the shades were powdery or had a bit of fallout during application (though generally consistent with ColourPop’s current eyeshadow formula).

Second Star

Second Star is a darker, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was moderately powdery, so I had to be careful to avoid fallout, but it was blendable and was a more velvety matte that yielded mostly opaque coverage. It stayed on well for seven hours before fading a bit.

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.

Small Fairy

Small Fairy is a medium-dark gold with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a soft, more loosely-pressed consistency that had some fallout during application. To minimize the fallout, you’ll want to pat it onto the skin with a fingertip or a dampened brush. It lasted decently for eight hours but had light fallout over time.

Big Magic is a muted, light-medium rosy mauve with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage with a soft, lightly powdery texture that was still substantial enough not to lose its coverage when applied to bare skin and blended out. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Tink

Tink is a bright, light mint green with subtle, warm undertones and cooler, bluish shimmer and a metallic finish. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The texture was lightly creamy, moderately dense but not thick, and picked up well with a dry brush. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Pixie Dust

Pixie Dust is a light, bright chartreuse green with strong, warm yellow undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was soft, slightly drier and more loosely-pressed, which resulted in some fallout during application when I applied it dry. I’d recommend using it with a fingertip or a dampened brush to get more even coverage and to minimize fallout. It had mostly opaque, buildable color payoff that lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Neverland

Neverland is a medium-dark forest green with subtle, warm undertones and cooler-toned, fine emerald green pearl that gave it a soft, metallic finish. The consistency was lightly emollient to the touch, smooth, and was best applied with a dampened brush or else really pressed/patted onto skin to avoid fallout. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage that wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
