ColourPop Chasing Rainbows Pressed Powder Shadow Palette, Review and Swatches
Feb 06, 2019 - Zubaida -
In the season of sales i have picked a lot of products from ColourPop and have been using them a lot. However because of my busy schedule the reviews are coming little late. I have reviewed the one palette called Perception and today i am going to share my thoughts on one beautiful palette called Chasing Rainbows Pressed Powder Shadow Palette. Let me tell you all about its shades and performance.
Swatches of Wiggles, Blurred Lines, So Meta, Feeling It and Realness
Swatches of Woke, Wish List, Menifest It, Keep Cool and Not Playing
This palette comes in usual cardboard packaging of multi shades reflecting the rainbow colors as the name of this palette suggests. the outer packaging is a simple plastic cover from where the palette slides in and out. It contains 15 shades ranging from some every day to vibrant colors with different finishes. I liked that there are many matte shades to mix and match with the shimmery ones. However i miss the mirror in this palette and would have loved it more wit it.
The quality of shades is similar as could expect from ColourPop meaning they are very pigmented and have soft texture to easily blend. I have noticed some fallout from dark shades though but nothing too bad to hate this palette. Coming towards shade selection, i really liked that you can easily create a good eye look for everyday or for any event just with this one palette as there are good amount of light to dark and transition shades. Lets talk about all shades separately.
Wiggles defined as matte pastel peach and it is a beige matte color perfect to use as base color. The texture and pigmentation is very good.
Blurred Lines defined as metallic opal with a gold flip and is a duochrome shade with white silvery base and gold sparkles. The texture and pigmentation is very good. It is similar to ColourPop Now and Zen pressed powder shadow.
So Meta defined as metallic marigold and is bright yellow gold shade with frost finish. The pigmentation is very good with slight dry formula.

Prism defined as matte blackened aubergine and is a very dark brown matte shade. It is also intensely pigmented and have little dry but blendable texture.
Overall this palette is great combination of shades and finishes. You can create any sort of look solely from this palette as you can find light and dark shades to mix and match easily. There is very little fallout in shimmery and very dark shades and some of the mattes and little dry texture. However none of the shade is difficult to blend. Some shimmery shades are better applied with damp brush or fingers.
