Last week, I caved like the weak woman I am and placed an order on ColourPop’s website. By then, I missed the good deal of buy two eye shadows, get one free but I went ahead anyways because I don’t know the meaning of self control.
The truth is, I didn’t end up buying a lot since a lot of the colors I originally wanted were basically dupes for the Modern Renaissance palette. It took some time choose the ones that I want but with the help of trusty YouTube videos, I managed to narrow it down to colors I don’t really have in my collection.
I placed this order last week and apparently ColourPop brought back their buy 4 shadows and get one free palette deal today. So if you’re looking for an empty palette, head on over while I wallow in buyer’s remorse.
That said, the palette’s design is quite cute and aesthetically pleasing. It can hold up to 12 eye shadow pans and it closes shut with a magnetic click.
Pressed Shadows & Birthday Gift
So far, I am impressed with their pressed powders and will definitely buy more in the future. The shadows are pigmented and apply well onto the lid. There is a little of kick up, especially with my bouquet toss (but with this one I think mine might have been pressed badly).
From left to right:
- Bouquet Toss
- A soft pink in a metallic finish
- Come and Get It
- An unique dual chrome in a metallic finish
- The News
- A nice rose color in a matte finish
- I Owe You
- A mid-tone orange that leans more on the peachy side in a matte finish
- Paper Tiger
- a beautiful mustard color to warm up the eyelids and has a matte finish
Since it was ColourPop’s three year anniversary, they also gave away a limited edition color in their Super Shock formula. The baby blue packaging is absolutely adorable!
I originally didn’t like the color from the swatch I saw online but I was really pleasantly surprised when I got it in the mail. Birthday cake is a metallic copper rose with tons of pink sparkles and shimmer. The formula is buttery soft and blends so easily.
