ColourPop Single Pressed Powder Eye Shadows - Swatches, Review and a Sunset Inspired Makeup Look!

It's no secret around here that I am big fan of ColourPop - they are an affordable brand and make amazing products!

It's been quite a while, but back in January ColourPop released single pressed powder eye shadows! And, of course I had to jump on the bandwagon and try these out! There are quite a few more colours than what I grabbed, but I wanted to see how I liked them!

These pressed powder shadows are described as "highly pigmented shadow that applies evenly and feels ultra-velvety and silky. This long wearing formula contains a unique combination of softer powders which adheres easily to the eyes, gives a soft focus effect, and blends smoothly and evenly."

As with the rest of ColourPop products, the pressed pigment shadows are affordable - $5 each! These shadows come in a variety of finishes - matte, satin, metallic, and duochrome!

With all the shadows I selected, I was really impressed with the formula and pigmentation! The shadows are nice and soft and apply very well - they are super blendable and smooth. The pigmentation is great and still look bold when applied with a brush. 

And, the shadows I picked up really reminded me of a sunset, so I wanted to create a beautiful sunset inspired eye look!
