Review: Colourpop has got to be one of the best affordable brands out in the market. Their affordability and quality are unbeatable. A few weeks ago, they released the "Going Coconuts" collection which consisted of an eyeshadow palette, Supershock Eyeshadow Trio, bronzing powders, lip tints, lip scrub and a lip gloss. After seeing this "Going Coconuts" eyeshadow palette, I knew I had to have it. Not only these colors called my name, it reminded me of the Natasha Denona Biba All Neutral Palette.
The packaging is a white shiny finish box with coconut prints which made it appealing to the eyes with its fresh and light appearance. The pans are housed in a 9-pan plastic compact with a large mirror. I prefer this type of packaging than the cardboard casing on their other palettes. The only con I have is that mine does not close all the way through which defeats the purpose of being a good travel palette. Maybe mine was an odd ball and that I got a dud. The shadows are creamy and easy to blend. They are also long-wearing and pigmented. There are two shades I had issues with in terms of crumbling in the pan and fall out - Palm Reader and Coco Crush. Palm reader had the most crumbling issue and fall out during application. Coco Crush was not as bad. However, both shades are extremely beautiful on the eyelids.
Colourpop releases collections left and right which for quite some time has deterred me from buying their products. However, I could not pass this one up. Is it out of this world and a must have? Probably not. The shades are very common and not earth-shattering; but if you are anything like me - these are the kinds of shadows that will get a ton of use; most likely on a daily basis. The shade selection also reminds me of the Natasha Denona Biba All Neutral palette. If you cannot get your hands on the Biba Palette, this is a good affordable alternative. I definitely recommend this palette if you love cool-toned neutrals and if you wear them on the daily. Otherwise, I would wait for something that fits your jam.
