ColourPop x Hocus Pocus Witching Hour Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Witching Hour

ColourPop Witching Hour 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette that included five shimmery shades and seven matte shades. Most shades were semi-opaque to fully opaque, but the formula on the shimmers made them best applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush. The mattes seemed a little thinner than recent releases, but they were fairly blendable and long-wearing.

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.

All Hallow’s Eve

All Hallow’s Eve is a very light orange with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish.

This shade lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Moon is Round

Moon is Round is a bright, yellowy orange with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage with a smooth, more velvety texture that was moderately powdery, so I had to be careful to tap off excess to avoid fallout. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

Bubble Bubble

Bubble Bubble is a deeper orange-coral with warm undertones and lighter, peachy-gold shimmer that gave it a frosted finish. It had opaque color coverage paired with a moderately-dense consistency that wasn’t overly firm but felt a little drier once I started to apply it to my lid so it didn’t go on as smoothly as I expected. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Twist the Bones

Twist the Bones is a medium purple with warmer, pink undertones and flecks of violet and silver pearl throughout. It had a drier, thinner texture that was best applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush as it resulted in a smoother, more even application of color. It had opaque pigmentation applied dry, so it was really a texture issue. This shade showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear.

Circle of Salt

It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.
