Review: Colourpop Pressed Powder Shadow - Ringer and Snake Eyes

I have been a lover of single pressed powder shadows from Colourpop ever since I started buying products from them. It's so convenient to choose just the shades that you want and putting them in an empty palette to create your own color scheme. Plus they are very affordable while still having great quality. I have added two new shades to my collection Ringer and Snake Eyes. 


Single eyeshadows come in plastic packaging. They have metal pan, so they can be placed into empty magnet palettes. In each is 1.5 grams of product and it costs 4.50$


I love formula of both of these, it's almost creamy to the touch and pigmentation is very good. Their metallic shades always have amazing sheen and pigmentation. 

Colourpop has range of different finishes from glitter, matte, metallic to satin. They also have huge color selection, so you can definitely find all your neutrals as well as amazing pops of color. You can buy them here


Ringer is light metallic warm champagne peach shade. For light skin tone this is actually lovely bridal shade, because it's light and gives beautiful sheen. On medium to dark skin tones this would be highlighting inner corner shade. 

I can't find it on their site anymore, so I think it's already discontinued. 

Snake Eyes

Snake Eyes is one of Colourpop best seller's and it's light neutral taupe with some pinkish mauve undertone to it. It's one of those shades that you can apply over the lid and it gives you amazing almost glass sheen similar to shade Glass Bull, though Glass Bull is much sheerer and has duochrome sheen to it. 


I think Colourpop single eyeshadows have amazing quality for that price. They have great pigmentation and blend easily. Most of them last on me the whole day without any noticeable fading. 

Metallic shades are more creamy to the touch and I find they blend better than mattes.

Kathleen Lights X Colourpop Empty Palette Large

Whenever I buy from Colourpop I also love to buy their empty large palettes, because they have magnetic bottom and allow you to store any single eyeshadows with metal pans in it. I already have one and I got this one as well. It was part of collaboration with Kathleen Lights and it's already discontinued, but there are still some from other collections that are available. 

You can store 24 single shadow from Colourpop in it and it has magnetic closing. It costs 10$.

Eyeshadow palettes are nice, if you find one that has all the shades that you would actually wear. But, if you want to build your own with different shades that suit your style, then I think buying single eyeshadows and putting them in an empty magnetic palette is your best choice. I always prefer getting new shadows that I actually need in my kit and are missing from my other palettes. Plus Colourpop's are very affordable, but good quality.
