Colourpop-front-2

I’m a huge fan of ColourPop Cosmetics, the formulas of their eyeshadow palettes are amazing; they’re smooth and long-wearing, and they’re just great products that don’t cost a bomb. Plus, the packaging is super cute, and who doesn’t love that! I recently bought a ton of palettes, so here’s my rundown to make it easier for you to decide, whether you’re buying for a ‘friend’ or not!

Colourpop-2MY FAV: Yes, Please! (aka Cute AF), $16 

Tones: Warm oranges, reds, and browns
Formulas: 8 mattes, 4 shimmers

I LOVE this palette, and it’s easily my fav out of all of these. It’s super versatile; it has loads of mattes, which makes building looks really easy, and it has a lot of wearable colors. Shop it here.

MOST TRAVEL-FRIENDLY: You Had Me At Hello, $18

Tones: Plums, pinks, and browns
Formulas: 6 mattes, 6 shimmers

My second fav palette! This has some really stunning shimmer shades in it and a lot of essential matte colors that will create the base for so many looks! It also has a mirror, which is a huge bonus for me, as I’m always doing my makeup on the go, and this just makes it so much easier. Shop it here.

MOST VERSATILE: I Think I Love You (metallic pink), $16

Tones: Bronzes and nudes
Formulas: 4 mattes, 8 shimmers

I don’t just think, I actually love this palette. It’s versatile and packed with loads of really wearable shades for daytime – so you can create really gorgeous subtle looks, but it also has a bold gold, black, and dark mattes, which are perfect for creating a smokey eye for evening. Shop it here.

MOST BOLD: Element Of Surprise, $16

Tones: Browns, and bronze shades with a pop of pink
Formulas: 6 mattes, 6 shimmers

This really does have an element of surprise – in the form of a popping pink shade. I like that this palette has four different textures; matte, metallic, satin, and duochrome, but I don’t know if this has the right shades to make it a classic palette that I would reach for all the time. Shop it here.

PRETTIEST PALETTE: She, $16

Tones: Plums, pinks, and nudes
Formulas: 5 mattes, 5 shimmers

Created in collaboration with the gorgeous actress and model Karrueche, I think this is such a pretty palette, but it also reminds me of the You Had Me At Hello Palette – so you would only need to buy one of these, which helps to narrow things down! This palette has more shimmers than the other, and it’s also more-pink toned – plus this packaging is super pretty. Shop it here.

MOST PLAYFUL: My Little Pony, $16

Tones: Warm oranges, reds, and browns
Formulas: 3 mattes, 6 shimmers, 2 satins, 1 duo-chrome

This is such an adorable palette, and TBH I’d buy it just for the packaging. The colors are really playful and definitely retro inspired, but I’m not sure how wearable all the shades are, although you can definitely create some pretty looks.
