Around the holidays I went ham on the makeup sales, including one from ColourPop. I had my eye on this palette for a while, and after seeing good reviews from friends (it also had an almost perfect score on the ColourPop website), I knew that I’d need to add it into my cart.
It’s been sitting in a box since the package arrived, but I finally cracked it open and I’m ready to review.
The ColourPop Good Sport Pressed Powder Palette comes housed in orange and purple leopard print cardboard packaging. The palette does not contain a mirror, but I imagine that’s something that helps keep the low price point (plus, I never use the mirror that comes with a palette, so it’s a non-issue for me).
It contains 12 pressed powders. The palette includes 4 metallics, 1 glitter and 7 mattes, with each pan containing 1 g of product.
The powders swatched just beautifully. The mattes required a second layer, but I’ll do it if it means a good colour payoff.
For the first look, I applied High Hopes as a transition shade and on the lower lash line, Sista in the outer v and Wild Out on the lid. Sista was pretty pigmented, so I blended a lot of it away, which resulted in a more pink colour (maybe I’ll just use a lighter hand next time).
For the second look, I applied Flow as a transition shade, EBB on the lid, Trophies in the outer corner and lower lash line and Trooper in the inner corner. Trooper really added some much-needed pop to the look.
Man, oh man…..this one was all kinds of yes. My ColourPop experience has mainly been with their lip products, but I’ve dabbled in their eye products as well. Having reviewed the Yes Please palette and the Pretty Much palette and being impressed with the formulas and shade selections, the Good Sport palette falls right into the same category. It had solid and consistent pigmentation, a nice balance of mattes and metallics and the shade selection is exactly what I wanted, as it took me out of the “eyeshadow rut” I’ve been in. The shades are vibrant, they’re different from what I have in my collection and the shades can stand out on your eyes if you want them to. Good Sport gets a big thumbs up from this gal!
