ColourPop Sparkler Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Sparkler

ColourPop Sparkler Pressed Powder Shadow Quad ($9.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes a bronze shimmer eyeshadow, two brown matte eyeshadows, and one “glitter metallic” shade, which was listed as not for use around the eye area (it included plastic, or PET, glitter in the ingredient list). All four shades were semi-opaque to opaque in coverage, blendable, and lasted decently, though the glittery shade had fallout and was more loosely-pressed.

Extra Bubbly

Extra Bubbly is a light-medium copper with strong, warm golden undertones and a metallic finish that also had flecks of random, small-sized glitter strewn throughout. This shade was marked as not intended for use around the eye area, and it included plastic (PET) glitter.

The consistency was more loosely-pressed, slightly drier, so there was fallout from the base as well as the glitter (which did not seem to add any visual impact, just contributed to fallout!). It had opaque pigmentation that lasted well for eight hours, aside from light fallout over time.

Sweet On

Sweet On is a light-medium, golden bronze with warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which adhered nicely to bare skin. The texture was moderately dense but not stiff to work with, so the product picked up evenly with a dry brush and blended out well. This shade showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

$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.

Seltzer (Sparkler)

Seltzer (Sparkler) is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a slightly thinner consistency compared to the other matte in the quad, so there was no fallout but it had to be built up for higher coverage. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Cool Cola

Cool Cola is a rich, dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage with a soft, smooth texture that was more substantial without being too powdery or too firmly-pressed into the pan. It applied evenly and blended out without difficulty. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.
