ColourPop Cream Soda Pressed Powder Shadow Quad ($9.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes a shimmery, peach eyeshadow, coppery “glitter metallic” shade (listed as not for use around the eye area as it included plastic, or PET, glitter in the ingredient list), and two matte eyeshadows (peach and light brown). All four shades had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation that was easy enough to work with, though this quad had light fallout during application.
Float is a light, golden peach with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even laydown of the product. The texture was soft, smooth, and dense without being too thick or firmly pressed into the pan. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

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.
