Thanks to holiday sales, I bought everything in sight…..including this palette from ColourPop (and another palette…and some Lippie Stix…..and a lipstick).
This is only the second eye product I’ve tried from ColourPop (My first being the ColourPop Yes Please palette). But for less than $10, I thought I’d pick it up.
The ColourPop Pretty Much Shadow Pigment Palette is a mini palette that comes in pink cardboard packaging.
The design looks like a closeup of iridescent gift wrap. If you look really closely and turn the palette towards the light, you’ll notice it is covered in little finger icons.
The cruelty-free palette contains six eyeshadows, each pan containing 1 g of product. There are three matte shadows and three metallic shadows.
I put together this look using all six shadows. I applied NVM to my crease, Yo Bish to the inner third of my eyelid, OTP to the centre of my eyelid and Cool It to the outer V. Then I applied Neither Do I to the outer half of my lower lash line and Yo Bish to the inner half of my lower lash line.
I expected Cool It and Neither Do I to be overly pigmented, so I went in with a light hand, but they were actually not too intense. The mattes applied smooth and could be built up to have a more impactful colour payoff and the shimmers applied lightly with a brush and could be applied with the fingertip for more punch.
I enjoyed this palette because it reminded me of a more usable version the Dior Thrill palette. It has a more well-rounded colour story, is a lower price point and is easier to use. If you’re looking for a pink and gold pocket-sized palette, be sure to try ColourPop’s Pretty Much palette.
