Tidal Wave

ColourPop Tidal Wave Pressed Powder Shadow Quad ($9.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, teal-themed color story that included two shimmery shades and two matte shades designed to coordinate with the brand’s temporary hair color range. All four shades were fairly pigmented, blendable, and lasted for around eight hours on me but had some powderiness/dryness overall.

Ingredients

Ocean Breezy

Ocean Breezy is a pale white base with green-to-gold shifting shimmer paired with a frosted finish.

  • Opaque pigmentation
  • Soft, slightly more loosely-pressed
  • Picked up readily with dry brush, blended out well
  • Long-wearing (8 hours before fading visibly)

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.
