Colourpop: All I See Is Magic and You Had Me At Hello

Colourpop Palettes swatches

I recently ordered Colourpop's palettes in All I See Is Magic and You Had Me At Hello. Both are cruelty-free. It was tempting to get more but I was trying to be realistic because I doubt I'll really use certain colors and shimmers. I've only mentioned Colourpop's Ultra Mattes here when it first came out. As for powder products, I only used one of their eyeshadows and a blush which I ended up hating both. I couldn't get good pigment off those using a brush. I even scratched the top off but it was very weird and applied chalky.

I only had one palette before but during the past few months, I've managed to try out other brands for eyeshadows. I decided to give Colourpop a chance due to a recommendation and it was on sale!

I was super drawn to that green shade but JUST KIDDING it's really a liar. It's a metallic brown with a teal duochrome. I'm slowly branching out to shimmer shades and thought this palette would have the best color selections for neutral, holiday looks.

My favorite shades are Top Notch (medium warm brown matte), Now & Zen (white gold pearl), T-Cup (mauve matte) Go Wish (light warm yellow matte) and Twinkle Toes (gold brown metallic). I do like the mattes more! Even the orange shade applies so smoothly but I don't know how to make that color work on me yet.

These shadows apply soft like in the Tarte palette: Clay Play Face Shaping.  Sometimes I'll dip my brush in again to keep the pigment up because of my preference for soft brushes. These would have better color payoff with firm ones. This palette retails for $20. I honestly wouldn't have ordered this if it weren't on sale. I paid near $15 which is more fitting.

The swatches are really high pigmented! I thought I was going to like this palette more but You Had Me At Hello wins for me.

My top favorite shades are Moon Struck (warm gold frost) and The Knot (warm peach frost). I like to apply this in the center of my lid since I've got slightly hooded eyes.

Other shades I like are Look See (berry matte), Winning Ticket (warm plum matte) and FBO (warm plum pearl). I'm really into mauves, plum and purples lately. The rest of the matte shadows perform really well. These powders are really soft and blend out evenly. This palette retails for $18. Still believe in holding out for sales because really, Colourpop??  If the color selection is your favorite, then go for it! The plus side to this palette is the mirror and the other palette doesn't have one for some reason.

Both of these have shadows that have lasted 8 hours on me with an eye primer.

What products would you recommend from Colourpop?
