ColourPop Really Ruby Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Really Ruby

ColourPop Really Ruby Pressed Powder Shadow Quad ($9.00 for 0.21 oz) is a new sapphire-inspired color story that includes two shimmers and two matte shades in a clear plastic case. Light and peachy glosses were more prone to flaking and translucency, due to the drier texture, while the other three shades were more consistent and performed higher.

Cardinal Gem

Cardinal Gem It is a medium light base, peachy yellow with warm undertones and splashes of shimmery pink and gold. The eyeshadow had a drier feel and less pressure, which made it difficult to apply evenly and particularly prone to flaking during application. The product had medium to semi-opaque color coverage. I had the good fortune to apply it with a wet brush. It lasted well for seven and a half hours before fading out a bit.

Formula overview

$4.50 / 0.05 oz. – $90.00 an ounce

The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is meant to be a “highly pigmented” formula with an “ultra-smooth and silky” texture that is “long-wearing” and “sticks easily to eyes.” Most shades have semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation which applies well to bare skin, blends without issue, and lasts for seven to eight hours.

Matte eyeshadows tend to be a little more powdery, though smooth and finely milled, in the pan, while glosses have a thicker, creamy texture. Occasionally, glossy or metallic shadows are better applied with fingertips or a wet brush.

Wealth

Wealth A lighter and lighter burgundy color with cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was drier and thinner than most of the brand’s matte eyeshadows, but I felt it made it easier to build color and reduced flaking. It had a mostly buildable opaque color payoff that lasted well for eight hours before fading out a bit.
