In my most recent post, https://discoveringthedrugstore.wordpress.com/2019/06/09/more-colourpop-what-i-spent-my-birthday-money-on-part-1, I showed you some gorgeous new to me items I got from Colourpop and hinted I’d be revealing the 2 palettes next. So true to my word that’s the point of this post today.
Let’s start with the Just My Luck palette. This is one of their 9 pan monochromatic palettes that have recently been picking up in popularity. It was hard not to go with the pink or purple themed ones, but green is the color most wearable for my coloring, especially when my hair is coppery.
First Row: Chances Are… is a light minty matte, Kiss My Hass is a matte shamrock green and 50-50 is a deepened metallic hunter green. Second Row- Big Banks is a metallic emerald, Mary Jane is a shimmery chartreuse, Olive U is a golden shimmer olive. Third Row: Act Natural is a blue leaning pine green matte, Mo Bamba is a dark kelly green matte and Charmed is olive tinged khaki brown matte.
Oh man, these greens are lovely. They are very easy to work with, with an excellent range of shades. I am especially crushing on Mary Jane, Olive U, Act Natural and Charmed. Charmed was such a smart choice, instead of throwing in a black or super dark green for crease work or lining this brown really works lovely against all the green shades. Olive You has a great punch of bright yellow green chrome too. I haven’t worn this for a long time yet but from what I have tried, I am definitely a fan.
These 9 pan palettes can be bought on the Colourpop website for $12 USD.
Last but not least, the whole reason I wanted to make this order. This was their spring released palette that was continuously going in and out of stock, but I couldn’t pass on this shade selection plus this one palette contains four different formulas in it including self- adhering pressed glitters and for the first time ever a version of their super shock shadow not on a jar. So this is the Sweet Talk 12 pan palette.
First row we have Catch Me, a light peach matte, Side2side which is the super shock formula in a champagne with glitter, Garden Date is a golden pink duochrome, while Work It is a orangey mustard matte.
Second Row has Prima Drama, a gold, pink and blue glitter, Meadow is a bold orangey coral matte, Early Mornin’ is a primarily yellow gold with a bit of silver glitter and Dream Maker is a reddish coral matte.
The final row has ICYMI, a matte terracota, Melody is a metallic golden deep pink, Westside is a warm brown and Feel Free is warm burgundy matte.
These shadows are beautiful. Anything I have to say on the semi-negative side would honestly be nitpicking. They are easy to work with, even the glitters! (although not to remove because ya know how glitters are) They last through the day, are blendable and the colors really speak to me. I find the two corals in the middle to be a tad similar but meh. I am extremely happy overall with everything I tried in both these posts.
This palette retails for $18 USD on the colourpop website.
What else should I try? Any C.P recommendations?
