ColourPop Play It Jewel Mega Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches



Play It Jewel

ColourPop Play It Jewel 30-Pan Shadow Palette ($34.00 for 0.92 oz.) is the brand’s latest and greatest mega-palette inspired by jewel-tones. The palette was split evenly between shimmery and matte shades, and there was a decent amount of differences in depth, undertones, and color families that I could see it churning out several different looks. It was, however, still more of a neutral palette with pops of jewel-tones rather than dominated by jewel-tones.

The quality was decent with some shimmers and mattes being more semi-opaque and/or more powdery with light to moderate fallout, while other shades applied beautifully.

Crystalline

Crystalline is a pale gold with warmer undertones and a frosted finish. The texture felt a little drier and more loosely-pressed into the pan, which resulted in some fallout during application and a tendency for the product to sheer out to more medium coverage from mostly opaque initially. It wore nicely for seven 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.

Luster

Luster is a bright, light-medium copper with warmer undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The eyeshadow felt almost cream-like as it was dense, emollient, and smooth but managed to apply beautifully to bare skin with only a touch of fallout as it was so pigmented. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

The eyeshadow was more loosely-pressed in the pan, which resulted in light fallout and some powderiness that made the shimmer less seamless on bare skin.

Sparkle

Sparkle is a bright, chartreuse green with warmer undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer where a little went a long way as the texture was lightly creamy, denser, and smooth. I’d recommend using a lighter hand when picking up product initially to avoid light fallout. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Uncut is a brighter, peachy orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer, which was easily built up to full coverage with less than a second layer. The texture was slightly firmer compared to most of the brand’s mattes but definitely not stiff to work with. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Geode Life

Geode Life is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with strong, cool blue undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out fairly well, though it was a slightly drier, thinner formula that wasn’t the easiest matte to work with. This shade showed signs of fading after eight and a half hours of wear and left a stain behind.

Moving Colours is a bright, medium-dark red-copper with warm undertones and a pearly sheen with flecks of pink and gold micro-sparkle. It had mostly opaque color coverage, but the texture was more emollient, which resulted in a less even application of color that was hard to correct as it just wanted to slide around. This shade stayed on 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.

Bangle

Bangle is a rich, medium-dark orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, velvety, and blendable without being too powdery nor too firmly-pressed into the pan. It had opaque color coverage that lasted nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Wavelike

Wavelike is a medium-dark blue-teal with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was somewhat buildable, but it was drier and thinner, which made it best applied over a primer to aid in blending and intensity. It stayed on decently for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.

Majesty

Majesty is a medium-dark purple with warmer, pink undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque color payoff paired with a slightly firmer, drier texture that picked up decently with a dry brush but was best applied with a dampened brush, which minimized fallout and yielded a more even laydown of product. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Surreal

Surreal is a deep berry with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that adhered fairly evenly to bare skin but could have been a little more blendable as the texture was slightly drier and thinner overall. This shade lasted well for eight and a half hours but stained my lids after removal.

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

Mosaic

Mosaic is a deep red with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, velvety texture that wasn’t too powdery nor too firmly-pressed into the pan, which made it easier to control and blend out on bare skin. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit, though it left a stain after removal.

Finest

Finest is a medium-dark, richer brown with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque, buildable color payoff that was paired with a slightly firmer consistency that seemed more prone to reacting to any natural oils in the skin, so it wasn’t as blendable as it could have been. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.
