ColourPop Grandeur Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Grandeur

Colour Pop Grandeur 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($14.00 for 0.36 oz.) includes three shimmery eyeshadows, five (mostly) matte eyeshadows, and one pressed glitter (which isn’t intended for eye usage). As long as you’re someone who doesn’t mind some fallout from the sparkling matte finish ColourPop likes to use these days, I think the palette is pigmented, easy to use, and had good wear.

Velvet

Velvet is a light brown with muted, warmer undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was somewhat powdery in the pan, but it only sheered out slightly during application (from its initial opaque coverage) and could be built up with less than half of a layer on top. The eyeshadow was easy to apply and blend out. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

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.

Haus

Haus is a light gold with strong, warm undertones and a frosted finish. The consistency was somewhat drier, which led to a frostier finish that emphasized skin texture slightly and was more prone to fallout during application. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that lasted well for eight hours on me.

Dusk

Duskis a light-medium brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin and blended out beautifully. The texture was lightly powdery but velvety and substantial, so it wasn’t prone to sheering out too readily. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Lavish

Lavish is a medium bronze with moderate, warm undertones and multi-colored shimmer that gave it a metallic finish. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy and blendable, which yielded rich color coverage in a single layer. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Excess

Excess is a medium-dark gold glitter with a translucent base. It was listed as a Pressed Glitter and is not for use on the eye area. It had semi-opaque “coverage” in the form of glitter, and the more emollient base helped the glitter disburse evenly without sheering out immediately. It had some migration/movement when used as a cheek highlighter.

Ingredients

*not intended for use in the immediate eye area. polybutylene terephthalate, polyethylene terephthalate, ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, polymethyl methacrylate, acrylate copolymers, ethylene/va copolymer, polyurethane 33, lauroyl lysine, magnesium myristate, synthetic beeswax, chlorphenesin, dehydroacetic acid. may contain: black 2 (ci 77266), ferric ferrocyanide (ci 77510), iron oxides (ci 77491, ci 77492, ci 77499), mica (ci 77019), red 7 (ci 15850), red 34 (ci 15880), titanium dioxide (ci 77891), yellow 5 (ci 19140).

NOTICE: All products categorized under “Glitter” contain Polyethylene Terephthalate, also known as plastic or PET glitter, and it is typically cosmetic grade glitter. Inclusion of this ingredient sometimes carries a warning (in the US) that the product is “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.” This ingredient has not been approved for usage on the eyes per the FDA. In recent years, some brands are including this product in their eyeshadows without any warning or callout and effectively marketing them as eyeshadows or including a symbol of an “eye” which suggests eye usage. Via CosIng for EU, PET glitter is permitted without any restrictions or limitations. For an in-depth look at whether cosmetic grade glitter is safe, please view this post.

Mode

Mode is a medium-dark brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. The texture was more substantial–velvety and a lightly powdery but not prone to sheering out. This shade showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

Need

Need has a light-medium, rosy copper base with green and teal shimmer throughout. It seemed to have less shift as it had multi-colored shimmer. The texture was soft, slightly more loosely-pressed in the pan, but it had good adhesion and wasn’t prone to fallout. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Jolie

Jolie is a darker, taupe-brown with neutral undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had flecks of gold sparkle visible in the pan but very few actually translated onto the lid during application, though there was light fallout. The texture was soft, velvety, and blendable aside from the sparkle fallout. It had opaque color payoff that lasted nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Monaco

Monaco is a green-tinted black with cooler undertones and flecks of emerald micro-sparkle over a matte finish. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation in a single layer, though the sparkles did not bind as well with the underlying pigment, so there was light fallout during application and less translated onto the lid. It really had to patted and pressed into place with blending kept only to the outermost edges to show sparkle, which later added to fallout over the eight hours it wore for.
