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?
