My love for ColourPop has been real for a couple years now but it wasn’t until about 6 months ago that it turned into an obsession. I can’t get over the quality of their eyeshadows and lipsticks, the wide variety of shades and the decent prices, so I pretty much stalk their website to find out what they’re launching next. My last ColourPop purchase was for the Pink & Nectar eyeshadow palettes they released as part of their monochromatic spring 2017 collections.
I have been loving their Super Shock Shadows and Pigments for a long time, but since they launched their Pressed Powder Eyeshadow’s early this year, I knew they would probably be just as awesome as their other eyeshadows. Immediately after seeing the Nectar palette, Blow Me Away, and the Pink palette, Belle of the Ball, I knew I wanted them. The eyeshadows in each palette can be bought individually if you don’t care to buy the whole palette which is a nice option. Even though the palette cases aren’t that big, you can pop out each eyeshadow and put them in something bigger and more sleek because they’re all magnetized.
Top Row from L-R: Take a Break & Issues
Bottom Row from L-R: Centerfold & Slim Fit
The Nectar collection was the first to come out, followed by Pink and Sand. Blow Me Away ($18) contains 3 mattes and 1 shimmery shadow, like the other monochromatic palettes. Take a Break is a light shimmery golden peach, Issues is a matte light pastel peach, Centerfold is a matte bright coral, and Slim Fit is a matte bright red coral.

Bottom Row from L-R: Fair Play & On the Fence
The Pink collection followed with the Belle of the Ball ($18) eyeshadow palette. It features Secrets, a matte light petal pink, Soft Core, a matte light-medium warm rosy pink, Fair Play, a matte hot pink, and On the Fence, a frosty light pink.
These eyeshadow palettes are both so pigmented and so easy to blend. Fair Play (the hot pink) and the two coral shades on the right of the Nectar palette are my absolute favourites. Centerfold, especially, really surprised me because it’s a lot brighter than it looks in the pan. The mattes are smooth and not chalky and the shimmers add a nice sparkle to any makeup look. If you haven’t tried any of their pressed powders, these palettes are definitely the way to go. If you’re a pink or coral fan, you’ll save a couple bucks by buying either of the palettes instead of the individual eyeshadows, plus they have some nice sets where you can get each palette with the 3 complimenting lipsticks that are part of each set. The shipping rates are not too bad either, which is another reason why I buy stuff so frequently from them. Their stuff is only getting better and they have tons of deals in their sales section so, if you haven’t already, you need to check them out and get obsessed with me! 😉
