I love the beauty industry, so I always stay up to date with the newest releases, beauty news, and industry conversations. Despite owning such a large makeup collection, I work hard to use what I own. Trying tons of makeup means I get to test out many different formulas from a wide variety of brands. In the past few months, I’ve embarked on a journey to showcase and rank all of the items in my collection, by category.
In today’s post, I will be discussing my ColourPop pressed single eyeshadow collection ranking.
Unlike my previous ranking posts, I will not be ranking the individual ColourPop pressed single eyeshadows in my collection, but will be discussing how I organize my single shadows. However, as with most posts in this series, I’ve included swatches of each ColourPop pressed single eyeshadow in my collection.

ColourPop Single Shadows were the gateway drug for me to try other single shadows. Not only does ColourPop maintain a fresh array of colors and finishes, but the already affordable brand constantly runs BYOP (Build-Your-Own-Palette) bundles where consumers can buy filled palettes of single shadows for a discounted price.

My only complaint with ColourPop’s single shadows is the frequency with which they discontinue various shades in the line. I hate how often these shadows are discontinued.
ColourPop Pressed Single Eyeshadow Collection Ranking
Although I decided not to do an official ColourPop Pressed Single Eyeshadow collection ranking, I do have a few standout favorite shadows in my collection: Glass Bull, Snake Eyes, Tea Garden, and On a Whimsy.
Within the ‘You Should See Me In a Crown’ bundle, my favorite shadows are Running Late, Mr. Sandman, Not Ok, and Martian.
Are my choices surprising? I may be a colorful eyeshadow addict, but my day-to-day preferences tend to lean much more neutral.
Final Thoughts on my ColourPop Pressed Single Eyeshadow Collection
Single eyeshadows are a wonderful alternative to purchasing pre-made palettes for creative makeup lovers or makeup lovers on a budget. Although the price per shadow may be higher initially or more of an upfront investment, makeup lovers who purchase single shadows save money in the longterm by only buying shades that speak to them.
Investing in ColourPop’s Pressed Single Shadows can save beauty lovers a ton of money given the affordable price tag. Moreover, many of the brand’s cult classic, beloved shades are available in singles.
Investing in ColourPop’s Pressed Single Shadows is a more price-conscious strategy than buying every new palette release from the brand. Many shades are repeated throughout ColourPop palettes. For example, I have Let’s Do It 3X now! By purchasing single shadows, buyers can avoid purchasing duplicates.
Although there are nuances between various undertones or levels of pigmentation, many individual eyeshadows apply similarly to the eyelids. By investing in single shadows, buyers can stop buying repeat shades or filler shades.
Disclaimer:I not intending to brag about my beauty collection or to show off any wealth. I work hard to buy what I own. Additionally, I rarely pay full price for beauty products. Moreover, my collection has grown over many years.
