I own three ColourPop eyeshadows. Here they are.
Left to right: Bandit, Drift and Desert.
Desert- “Warm saddle brown with a taupe satin finish. From barely there to barely sober, this shade is perfect for every occasion.”
I think this is a soft beige shimmer than leans a little pink on me.
Bandit- “Yippe Ki yay Mother lovers, introducing your new favorite warm rusty brown with a matte finish.”
This is a soft brown with shimmer and a slight orange tone.
Drift- “Pop this true cranberry in a pearlized finish on your eyes and you may notice some attractive men drifting your way.”
This is a rich cranberry red shimmer.
Bandit up close. It looks very intimidating in the pot.
Top to bottom: Desert, Drift, Bandit.
As you can see, they (especially Bandit) aren’t as intense as one might think.
In a way, I am glad Bandit is sheerer than expected because it has turned out to be a great crease shade for me. Someone seeking a more pigmented eyeshadow might be disappointed.
Desert is a nice lid shade. All three eyeshadows last for at least 8 hours on me with primer. They blend easily, apply smoothly and are buttery soft.
The worst thing about these is the pigmentation, but I feel that this makes them more wearable for the average person. I just think one should not expect Sugarpill or Makeup Forever-levels of pigmentation and intensity.
Pros: Very affordable, lasts for 8 hours, nice colors, easy to use, decent packaging.
Cons: Not that pigmented, only available online.
