ColourPop x Mandalorian The Child Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

The Child

Colour Pop The Child 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that includes nine shades across a mix of shimmer and matte finishes. The matte shades were more powdery, though in practice, they were fairly easy to work with, were buildable and blendable, and had a decent wear time. I believe that Precious Cargo is a Super Shock Shadow, which ended up being less pigmented, though for those who expect to use it for brightening the inner tear duct or for layering, it likely would work for that role.

I thought the overall color story was quite good, and it came together in a way that was also less expected/more in line with the ColourPop palettes that I loved to see a few years ago. It’s still more of an earth-toned, neutral palette, but the colors felt slightly altered to be less overdone than some of the other palettes released by the brand this year.

It doesn’t come with the plush, but you can snag the same plush at Amazon ($12) or Target ($12.99). The palette launches tomorrow at 10AM PT. I’m guessing that they’ll disable discounts on it, but you can always give code TEMPTALIA a try for 10% off.

Precious Cargo

Precious Cargo is a pale, white gold with a subtle, greenish-shift in its metallic finish. It had medium color coverage with a lightly creamy, more emollient texture that turned to powder when it came into contact with my skin. It felt like a Super Shock Shadow to me as it had the same spongy feel. It wore well for nine and a half hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.07 oz. – $85.71 Per Ounce

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow is a cream-based formula that comes in a multitude of shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip to them (they have a “wetter” feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. Almost every shade I’ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later). The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented.

From feedback I’ve seen from readers, many love them but some don’t like them at all. They aren’t a traditional cream eyeshadow, as they are denser (more sponge-like), and they apply best with flat, firm, synthetic brushes (I like the MAC 242 and 249) for me. The brand recommends using fingers for the most pigmented application, but I’ve only felt that fingers were necessary on a few shades (usually the super glittery ones).

The more matte shades can be on the drier side and vary from medium to opaque in coverage, though they’re often buildable.  They can be a little hard to diffuse the edges of, though some are lovely to work with.

The more glittery shades have been the weakest to me, as they can be sheerer or harder to apply.  Sometimes, they are more pigmented and work like the other finishes in the formula, but often, they are sheerer and only function well patted on top of more pigmented eyeshadows to add glitter.  They do, however, tend to have little fallout over time with the occasional shade having a more moderate amount of fallout (but still less fallout than most powder eyeshadows with glitter).

Right Hand Mando

Right Hand Mando is a light-medium pewter gold with a greenish tinge paired with a metallic finish. The texture felt more loosely-pressed, so there was some dryness present and light fallout when working with it (unless using fingertips or a dampened brush). It had opaque color coverage that adhered evenly and blended out well otherwise. It 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.

Just Like a Tatooine

Just Like a Tatooine is a light, peachy brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of color that was blendable along the edges. The texture was somewhat powdery, so I’d recommend tapping off excess or using a lighter hand to minimize it. This shade lasted nicely for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

Sipping Soup

Sipping Soup is a light-medium green with moderate, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It was cooler and lighter than a lot of greens one might think are similar; it was, effectively, less dupable than I expected. The eyeshadow had a smooth, lightly emollient consistency that was blendable and easy to work with. It had opaque pigmentation that wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Baby Face

Baby Face is a light, mint green with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a lightly powdery, but more substantial–denser, more velvety–consistency that minimized fallout potential. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

The Force

The Force is a brighter, medium tarnished gold with warmer undertones but cooler, green-gold metallic shift. The consistency felt lightly creamy, emollient but not overly dense or thick. It had opaque pigmentation that had great adhesion and blended out with ease along the edges. The color showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

Little Frog

Little Frog is a light-medium green with muted, warm olive undertones and a mostly matte finish. There were sparkles visible on top of the product, but they did not translate much during application–they largely disappeared as I applied and blended it out, but I didn’t see many stray sparkles as fallout. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer. It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Float Your Crib

Float Your Crib is a muted, medium olive green with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had medium to semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation–it seemed more pigmented in practice than it did swatched–but it had moderate powderiness and light fallout if I wasn’t careful to tap off excess and to use more of a patting/pressing motion for initial color placement but was very blendable. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
