Hot Chocolate

ColourPop Hot Chocolate Pressed Powder Shadow Quad ($9.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes one shimmery shade and three mattes in a richer, deeper neutral color story. All four shades were pigmented, blendable, and longer-wearing with little to complain about; the “worst” aspect was a bit of powderiness across all four shades but nothing that impeded performance.

This quad is one of six in a holiday vault, though ColourPop said they would be available individually when I asked, but they have not appeared individually on the site. It’s not realistic for me to review it as a set (takes much longer, but I also started testing them across sets already, and the system is better setup for a palette, not five palettes within a set, for readability!), so I decided to review them individually still.

Ingredients

Choc Full

Choc Full is a deep brown with muted, warm olive undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was a touch drier and more loosely-pressed, though I had no fallout when I patted it into place with a dry brush; for more insurance, I’d recommend using it with a dampened brush or fingertip. It had opaque color coverage that wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

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.

Fun Factory

Fun Factory is a medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had full color payoff paired with a smooth, velvety consistency that was blendable without being too powdery. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Half Sweet

Half Sweet is a darker, taupe-brown with more olive undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, almost cream-like feel as it was finely-milled but not powdery. The “issue” was it appeared greener and darker applied than in the pan (where it had a warmer, browner look). It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Ur Hot

Ur Hot is a blackened taupe with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well along the edges without much work. The texture was soft, a little powdery in the pan, but wasn’t prone to sheering out too readily. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
