ColourPop Lil’ Ray of Sunshine Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Lil’ Ray of Sunshine

Colour Pop Lil’ Ray of Sunshine 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($14.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, all-matte eyeshadow palette that revolves around warmer, yellow-leaning neutrals (and plenty of plain ol’ yellow, too!). I only found one shade to be so-so (Sun’s Out), but the other eight were nearly opaque to opaque in coverage, blendable, and long-wearing without any pesky micro-sparkle!

Sun’s Out

Sun’s Out is a light, yellowy beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was slightly firmer and more powdery, and it seemed more reactive to any natural oils on my skin compared to the other eight shades in the palette. It had good pigmentation that wore decently for seven and a half hours on me.

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.
