ColourPop Golden State Of Mind Pressed Powder Shadow Palette


I have another Colourpop Palette from my early January haul to review.  I have reviewed almost all of the palettes I received.

This is the Golden State of Mind palette .  This is usually $26, but is on sale now for $20.  I think most of the site that isn’t on sale is 20% off if you spend over $50 right now.  That code is GET20.  I don’t think this is included since it’s already on sale.


This beauty is made up of metallic and shimmer shades.  It’s super sparkly and gorgeous!  I was very lucky because I picked it up at a time where if I spent $50, I got this palette for free.  Here are the shades from top to bottom:

Golden Egg: pinky beige with turquoise glitter
Pay the Piper: icy blue
GRLFRND: pink with violet glitter
Zero Clue: vibrant warm yellow
Watch Out: golden ivory with pink glitter
Drizzle: icy baby pink
Uptight: rose gold
Can’t Stop: icy champagne ivory
Sparkler: silvery bronze
Unsupervised: pink champagne
Lust in Time: medium cool rose
Mind Tricks: icy blackened purple
Wing Woman: red brown with green and gold glitter
Heads or Tales: icy cranberry
Tinker Time: blackened antique gold with blue glitter




I thought the first row of pastels was going to be my favorite, but I love this last row.  The colors are so gorgeous and dramatic.  These swatch so nicely.  I thought they needed to be applied with a finger because a brush wouldn’t pick up the pigment, but if I dig in with a harder brush, I can apply them pretty well.  Fingers do work, though!

What surprised be about this palette is that I thought I would use it as an accent to other shadows, especially mattes.  But, I have been able to create complete, if shimmery, looks. They are nice used with mattes, though!

I do like this palette.  It is not one I reach for daily, but it’s nice for weekends and speciall occasions.

I’d have to say pressed powder palettes are my favorite ColourPop products.  What’s yours?

  1. The last row is my favourite too! I bet they would apply really intensely using a sponge applicator (the old school type!)
    I’ve only tried the eye shadows from ColourPop – the original Super Shock and the pressed ones – I have to agree, the pressed ones are really nice!
