Not a lot of makeup brand and celeb collaborations really excite me. However, since I didn’t end up buying the ABH Modern Renaissance palette, I felt like I needed to get my hands on something that had those pink and rosy tones. With my love for the show Claws, I had a newfound admiration for Karrueche Tran and add in the fact that the Fem Rosa Collection from ColourPop looked amazeballs, it seemed like a no brainer for me to buy.
ColourPop x Karrueche Fem Rosa Collection is inspired by all things ‘rose’ and includes an eyeshadow palette named “She”, a pressed powder cheek and face palette named “Her” as well as a Fem Rosa lip bundle. When I purchased the Fem Rosa collection, I also received an additional, limited edition Ultra Glossy Lip that was being offered on the release date.
Now, first things first, let’s talk about the eyeshadow palette! She eyeshadow palette is made up of a medley of rosy tones and mauve shades, as well as buttery metallic finishes. This palette is all about romance and will dress up your eyes for a brunch date or seductive night on the town. The palette offers 12 shadows which includes Ladylike, a metallic soft ivory, Babe, satin light peachy pink, Dainty, metallic pinkish taupe, Chick, a metallic subtle gold, Mademoiselle, a metallic rose gold, Gal, a metallic red with copper duo chrome, Empress, a metallic mid-tone pink plum, Filly, a metallic rusty orange, Dear, a matte warm rose, Missy, a matte deep burgundy, Damsel, a matte smokey violet, Duchess, a matte dusty coral.

Her face palette gives you the full rosy effect with shades to bronze, glow and flush up your cheeks and face. Her includes Lassie, a true gold pearlized highlighter, Mistress, a matte rosy pink blush, and Dame, a neutral brown matte bronzer.

Last but not least in this collection is the Fem Rosa lip bundle that comes with one Ultra Glossy Lip and two Ultra Satin Lips, plus the limited edition Ultra Glossy Lip that came with the purchase. The collection includes Contessa, a sheer warm gold gloss with pink and gold glitter, Mrs, a satin deepened coral, and Darling, a satin deep plum. The limited edition Ultra Glossy Lip, Polished, is a metallic dark bronze gloss.

My Glittery Thoughts:
Without a doubt, I’m so happy that I got my hands on the She eyeshadow palette. I love the mix of matte, satin and metallic/shimmery shades. The pigmentation is incredible and the options of different kinds of makeup looks are limitless. After getting this palette, I no longer regret not buying the Modern Renaissance palette because this one does it all for me and is so much cheaper. The eyeshadow palette was definitely the main attraction for me but the bundle price for the complete collection made more sense to buy however the other products are nice but not amazing. Her is a face palette I’ve been using more on my eyes because the colours are way too dark on my skin. The Fem Rosa lip bundle is really pretty and all of the shades look good on me except for the limited edition Polished shade. The colour clashes too much with my pale skin tone compared to the other shades but I’m glad it was free! Mrs is a pretty shade that enhances my freckles and the golden tones in my hair while Darling provides a pretty contrast between its deep plum colour and my paleness. If you have a tanned or darker complexion, you will get tons of use out of all of these products but if you’re pale like me, it might be best to stick with getting the eyeshadow palette. If you do not own a rosy toned palette that is very versatile and extremely fun to wear, you need to buy She!
