“YES PLEASE” COLOURPOP PALETTE REVIEW + RESTOCK INFO
Colourpop is restocking this palette on wednesday, June 28th. Retail price is $16
This palette is the first taste of Colourpop eyeshadows for me. I know, I’m late jumping on the bandwagon. I haven’t tried the Super Shock eyeshadows and I’m only just now trying the pressed shadows. I really didn’t know what to think of this palette. When I saw it online, I knew that I had to have it. That yellow is gorgeous! The warm tones are basically all that I use lately. So I knew this needed to be a piece in my collection. The $16 price sold me. I bought it the minute it released online. When it got to me and I swatched it, I was a little iffy. The shimmers swatched beautifully and some of the matte shades crumbled. These shadows are so soft. There is a lot of kick-up when using a brush, and I warn you to be careful while swatching. If you’re not careful then you’ll have chunks of shadow flying out of the palette. Now, let’s talk about performance. I was amazed at the pigmentation of the mattes. Holy smokes, that yellow blew me away! I almost lost my breath! The shimmers are incredible when used with a little bit of Fix Plus or other makeup spray. Sometimes shimmers need a little moisture to really pop. That’s average. I use Fix Plus on my more expensive and high end shadows too. The Colourpop shadows are so easy to blend. I didn’t have an issue with any of the shades I used. My favorites in the palette are the yellow tones and the bright tangerine/orange. The yellow toned shimmer is so bright. Seriously, every time I look in the mirror I’m a little taken aback. 1) I don’t think I’ve ever used a yellow eyeshadow so it’s different and so so pretty and 2) it’s so vibrant.
My verdict for this palette: GET IT BEFORE IT SELLS OUT AGAIN!!
CONS: This palette is small, and the size of the shadows themselves are small. The packaging gets really dirty. The shadows have a lot of kick-up and the packaging is white. No mirror.
PROS: Great for travel! This palette is so slim and small. You could take this with you anywhere and it’s really easy to store. Durable packaging and strong magnetic closure.
