All Things Equinox

Colour Pop All Things Equinox 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition (limited life? where nothing is truly permanent but gets restocked at least once?) nine-pan palette featuring four matte shades, one sparkle-matte, and four shimmery shades. The palette was a more unique offering relative to other pre-made palettes from the brand in the last year or so.

I noticed that a few shades applied differently in color than they appeared in the pan, which made it a little harder to use in practice. The performance was solid; most shades were pigmented, blendable, and lasted eight hours, though a few were a little powdery or prone to fallout.

Kindred

Kindred is a very light, bright pink with subtle, warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that adhered well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of product. The texture was lightly creamy, moderately dense, and easy to work with. It stayed on well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

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.

Infinity is a bright, light taupe-brown with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy, and dense without being too firmly pressed into the pan.

Sky High

Sky High is a dirty, gray-lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It applied much cooler-toned than it appeared in the pan. The texture was slightly firmer to the point where I felt like it was on the stiffer side, but with a heavier hand, it was workable to pick up product and still get nearly opaque coverage in a single layer. There were signs of fading present after eight hours of wear.

Stellar

Stellar is a bright pop of pinky-lavender with subtle, warm undertones and barley-there flecks of sparkle over a matte finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation but needed a primer to appear opaque due to the more powdery texture. There was also some fallout to contend with during application due to the level of powderiness and tendency to sheer out from this particular shade. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Alter Ego

Alter Ego is a medium, warmer mauve with flecks of silver sparkle over a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a moderately powdery texture, which resulted in some fallout. The sparkles adhered to bare skin but were too readily dispersed when blended, so it was best applied in gentle patting/pressing motions to mitigate the fallout and movement. It wore well for eight hours well but had some additional fallout over time.

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.
