Beachy Keen

ColourPop Beachy Keen Pressed Powder Shadow Quad ($9.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, warm-toned neutral quad that included two matte shades and two shimmer shades. All four shades had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, were blendable, and performed consistently with the brand’s powder eyeshadow formula.

Formula Overview

$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.
