I went a little wild and purchased five palettes from ColourPop Cosmetics recently! I couldn’t resist. ColourPop already has great prices on their palettes, and there were so many lovely combinations of eyeshadow colors, I had to get several. Heres the whole haul:
It always starts with just one or two, and then all of the sudden I have a full cart! lol
If you aren’t already familiar with ColourPop, they began in Los Angeles in 2014 by Seed Beauty, with a goal of offering beauty products at really reasonable price tags. Plus, they don’t test on animals—yay! And, their eye colors are, like, really pretty!
Following, I’ll show you a better peek at each palette, as well as an application idea for each:
- Give It To Me Straight
I am so into burgundy-hued eyeshadows lately (they seem to best bring out the hazel in my eyes). I like that Give It To Me Straight includes several burgundy-ish shades, as well as eyeshadows in a variety of finishes: mattes, frosts, and one micro-glitter.
btw—BS is that one micro-glitter shade, although it may be hard to tell in the photo.
Here is one idea of how to create a look from these colors:
As noted in the photos, here are the shades I used from Give It To Me Straight:
- crease: Truth Hurts
- outer lid corner: Be Blunt
- inner lid: Up Front
- middle lid: Candid
- brow bone: Matter Of A Fact
- tear duct: Up Front
- lash lines: Actually
There are so many ways you can wear these eyeshadows, and they look great using just a few shades (not as many as I did). I love the variety of finishes as well as hues and tones.
Each of these larger palettes have a magnetic closure, which is great if I have this palettes just sitting on my makeup table. But, if I pack any of these in my purse or bag I will probably rubber band them shut just to make sure they don’t come open in transit.
2. Dream Street
The greens in this palette were irresistible. When paired with the neutral pans, this is a really versatile palette. It was created in collaboration with Kathleen Lights.
I haven’t quite tried the Spark color yet, it may be too bright for me. 😉 And, I didn’t use either of the greens (Water Bearer or Mermaid Boy) in my application example but I think that Water Bearer, in particular, will be a nice upper lash line shade. I do wish this palette had the color names written under each of the pans like Give It To Me Straight does, alas.
Here are the shades I used from Dream St.:
- crease: Potion
- outer lid corner: Elfish
- inner lid: Star Dust
- middle lid: Sweet Dreams
- brow bone: Moony
- tear duct: Moony
- lash lines: Elfish
3. You Had Me At Hello
Many of these eyeshadows have a purple under-tone (even some of the brownish shades), which is the main reason I chose this palette.
I love the deep matte violet/purple of Look-See. The Knot is a beautiful light frosty very pale, cool pink that is the palette’s go-to highlighting color. Sparks Fly is the darkest shade, a cool matte (really saturated) coffee brown.
Here are the shades I used from You Had Me At Hello:
- crease: Want U Back
- outer lid corner: Look-See
- inner lid: Candy-gram
- middle lid: DTR
- brow bone: The Knot
- tear duct: The Knot
- lash lines: Sparks Fly
Lastly, I also purchased two small palettes with four pans of color each (perfect for a weekend trip or taking to the gym):
Each of these last two small palettes have just the right amount of tones/shades to create a fabulous eye!
