ColourPop Rudolph the Pink-Nosed Reindeer Palette Assessment & Swatches

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

ColourPop Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer 15-Pan Shadow Palette ($26.00 for 0.53 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday palette that included eight matte shades and seven shimmers housed in a slim, cardboard palette. The eyeshadows performed consistently with ColourPop’s powder eyeshadow formula, so the majority of the shades were pigmented, blendable, and easy to work with but a few were lightly powdery or had some fallout during application–nothing deal-breaking, though.

North Pole

North Pole is a very light peach with warmer, more orange-leaning undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The consistency was moderately dense with light glide, which helped the sparkles adhere to bare skin with minimal to no fallout. It had opaque pigmentation 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.

Eat Eat

Eat Eat is a light brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was more substantial, almost thick, compared to some of the other mattes with some powderiness, so there was light fallout if I wasn’t careful. It had opaque color coverage that wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Elf Practice

Elf Practice is a very light green with slightly cooler, bluish undertones and warmer, green-gold shifting pearl. It had a more emollient texture that felt thin, so it tended to apply most evenly with a fingertip rather than a dry brush. It had semi-opaque color coverage that was only buildable with a fingertip or dampened brush. It lasted well for seven and a half 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.

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.” The way the Pressed Pigments differ is that they’re not intended for usage on the immediate eye area.

The majority of the shades are semi-opaque to opaque in coverage, blend out fairly well, and can sometimes be a bit drier/more powdery compared to typical matte shades. They often wear eight to nine hours on me before fading, but many shades in the Pressed Pigment family leave some staining behind.

NOTICE: All products categorized under “Pigment” carry a warning in the US that the
product is “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.” Brands in the US typically market these
products as “Pigments” (instead of “Eyeshadow”), and there is often a warning on the back of packaging or
the label. The product includes color additives that are not approved for usage on the eyes per the
FDA.
Some color additives in “Pigments” have no usage restrictions in the EU, per CosIng, and can be used on the
eyes. We recommend checking ingredients to confirm current safety assessment/restrictions:
