Colour Pop Coast to Coral 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, nine-pan palette with four true mattes shades, two sparkles-over-matte shades, and three shimmers. Per the back of the outer packaging, Anemone and Keep Swimming are “not intended for use in the immediate eye area”

Coast to Coral is billed as the ultimate monochromatic coral palette. Featuring warm beachy shades in a mix of finishes, create looks fit for any season.

This palette is my spirit animal! The mattes are buttery and finely milled. The metallics are creamy and foil like. For once I have a 99 pan palette with NO pressed glitters, it does have 2 sequin mattes in it but that’s OK… I don’t mind sequin mattes because the glitters aren’t chunky or scratchy and they don’t get all over the face… most of the time the glitter doesn’t even translate to the eye unless you use a patting motion.

I hope ColourPop continues the trend of using sequin mattes over pressed glitter. The shades I used in this palette blended out seamlessly and buffed into each other well without going patchy and they even played nice with the shades I used from the Give It to Me Straight palette.

There was moderate kick back in the pans but there was a heap of fall out on the face… I think it’s because the shadows in this palette are finely milled.

It wasn’t all over the face just really the high cheek area and it wasn’t full pigment attack with the fall out. There wasn’t any of the shades where I had to build up layers to reach max opacity which is a big deal for coral shades… corals tend to need at least 2 layers and I didn’t need to build up a second layer with this palette.

There is enough shade variation that you can get a good solid week of wear from this one little 9 pan palette.
