ColourPop Ctrl + Alt + Glam Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches



Ctrl Alt Glam

ColourPop Ctrl Alt Glam 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.3 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that included several pops of pink and berry paired with warmer, more orange-based neutrals. The mattes were very consistent with the brand’s formula (fairly pigmented, blendable, easy enough to work with but had some powderiness), while most of the shimmers were more emollient but thinner/firmer, which made them easier to use with a fingertip.

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:
