ColourPop Amor Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Amor

ColourPop Amor 5-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new release that includes two true mattes, one sparkle matte, one pressed glitter, and one shimmer shade. The color story was cohesive and should be able to be used on its own for the most part (one may need to bring in a preferred brow bone and/or a transition depending on skin tone depth), but there was a good amount of contrast between the lightest and darkest matte shades.

I think the palette would have been better served by a light-medium to mid-tone shimmer over a glitter, though. The quality was decent across the board with the glitter being as it expected (but not amazing) and the sparkly matte shade having minor issues (as expected).

Passion

Passion is a darker, rosy beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, moderately powdery texture that sheered out a bit during application, though fallout wasn’t much of an issue. It lasted well for seven and a half hours before showing signs of fading.

$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.

Romeo

Romeo is a medium-dark pink with moderate, warm undertones paired with flecks of cooler pink sparkle over more of a matte base. The consistency was soft, somewhat powdery, and blendable, but the sparkles had a tendency to flyaway or blend past the base pigment during application. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage that stayed on well for eight hours, but there was a bit of fallout over time.

Affair

Affair has a transparent base chocked full of fine and mid-sized pink, peach, and lavender glitter particles. It had medium coverage from the amount of glitter in it, which could be built up a bit. The texture was emollient and could be pushed around slightly in the pan with some pressure, but the majority of the glitter adhered well to the skin and had good dispersion of particles. As a cheek highlighter, there was some migration present after eight hours of wear, though most of it stayed in place.

This shade contains plastic (PET) glitter and is not intended to be worn near the eye area.

Woo

Woo is a medium-dark plum with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was dense without being overly thick or too firmly pressed into the pan. The eyeshadow applied well to bare skin and lasted nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Darling

Darling is a medium-dark berry with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage with a smooth, moderately dense consistency that wasn’t overly firm or stiff to work with but wasn’t as powdery as most of the brand’s matte shadows tend to be. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours, though it left a slight stain behind.

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.

NOTICE: All products categorized under “Pigment” carry a warning in the US that the
product is “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.” Brands in the US typically market these
products as “Pigments” (instead of “Eyeshadow”), and there is often a warning on the back of packaging or
the label. The product includes color additives that are not approved for usage on the eyes per the
FDA.
Some color additives in “Pigments” have no usage restrictions in the EU, per CosIng, and can be used on the
eyes. We recommend checking ingredients to confirm current safety assessment/restrictions:
FDA/CosIng.
