Colourpop has been my absolute favorite makeup brand ever since I tried their liquid lipsticks. They have a huge social media presence and are always doing collabs with popular youtubers. Their products are quality, cruelty-free, and insanely affordable. If you haven’t checked out their eyebrow pomade or their super shock highlighters, you definitely need to!
For the longest time they were known for their creme products: highlighters, blushes, and eyeshadows. Only last year did they start releasing pressed powder shadows and you better believe I jumped on that fast. I ordered the “I Think I Love You” palette, a beautiful palette full of bronzed up metallics and mattes. I ordered this palette sometime in October, and I was so pleased with how “fall” it is. I’m more of a neutral eyeshadow gal myself, so this palette is perfect for the looks I tend to fall back on the most.
It’s adorable rose gold packaging is sleek and lightweight, but the palette unfortunately does not come with a mirror. This isn’t really a big deal for me but could be to some. The inside of the palette features “#colourpopme”, a hashtag that people can use to get their Instagram photos featured on Colourpop’s website.
The eyeshadow pans are a perfect size: about the same diameter as a quarter. The palette comes with 12 shadows and a sticker on the back with the names of the shadows labeled. I tried to take a photo of the back but since I’ve already had this palette for several months, the back isn’t looking too cute right now.
The pigment in these shadows is honestly so surprising. This palette retails for $16 and with 12 shadows, you’re only paying roughly $1.33 per shadow.
I’m no professional swatcher, but the rose gold color called “screw it” (third from the left swatch on my arm) is so gorgeous to me! It is my favorite shadow in the palette and is perfectly for that neutral glam look. The metallic ivory color called “my treat” is also the perfect browbone highlight. I reach for that color constantly, even when I’m not using any of the other shades in the palette.
Even though it isn’t fall anymore, I still find myself using this palette often. I love the soft, every day looks that can be made with these colors.
