This little quad has been out for a while. I however, finally took the Colour Pop plunge, so I have only just purchased it.
This quad comes with 2 mattes ( Glow and Cornelius) and 2 metallic shades (KathleenLights and Blaze)
You can buy these shades all together for $20 or separately for $5 each. I thought it was strange that you get no kind of discount, even a small one, for buying them as a set. But, I digress.
The packaging is simple, but that is not a bad thing. I prefer something sleek and uniform over something flashy. The cap is a screw top, so that the cream product inside will not dry out.It also seems pretty sturdy, so there is no fear of it breaking. I do think the shades in the quad go nicely together. 10/10 for the packaging.
I was less than impressed with the mattes. I applied it with my fingers, and it didn’t do much. I then used a brush, which was essentially pointless. I want to figure out how to make the matte shadows out, but until I do that, I will not be purchasing any more matte shadows from Colour Pop.
The shades are great! They are pigmented, they blend nicely, and a just plain beautiful! I can really see myself using these a ton. I am for sure purchasing more.
Over all I give these shadows a 2/4 (4 instead of 10 because there are four shades).
My first look with these shadows:
I tried not pulling in other shades, to give the full effect. I honestly would rather have had pulled in some other shadows, but whatever. I do really really love how KathleenLights and Blaze turned out, aren’t they beautiful! I tried to use Cornelius in the crease and Glow as a highlight shade. I used KathleenLights on my lid and Blaze LIGHTLY to define my outer V and my crease a bit.
I would recommend skipping the matte shades and just getting the 2 metallic ones.
Can anyone give me some pointers on making the matte shades work?
What Colour Pop items do I need to get or do you want to see used and swatched?
