Hi all! I’m starting a new series this year. I’m reviewing 20 palettes that I purchased or received last year (and maybe previous years) that I haven’t reviewed yet. I might also include palettes from this year if I don’t get around to reviewing them right away. These will include eye shadow and face palettes.
The reason I started this was as I was doing my Shop my Stash last year, I realized that I hadn’t reviewed a lot of the palettes I featured (check out my January Shop my Stash here). I’ve used them, of course, but haven’t given my review. So this year, I’m going to get that done!
The first palette I’m going to review is the Colourpop Going Coconuts ($12 USD) eye shadow palette. I picked this up a couple of months ago.
Going Coconuts is a cooler toned neutral 9 pan palette. I picked this up , perfect for your every day look. This super wearable palette is cute and compact.
The shades are:
Shredded: creamy vanilla with silver pinpoints
Palm Reader: white with gold flip
Coolada: cool taupe brown
Lovely Bunch: mid tone yellow brown
Coco Crush: icy pale champagne
Shell Yeah: neutral ginger brown
Get Crackin’: cool brown with silver flecks
Da Coco: icy bronze with violet pinpoints
Nutty: deep umber
Here are swatches of the whole palette:
From Left to Right — Shredded, Palm Reader, Coolada and Lovely Bunch, Coco Crush, Shell Yeah, Get Crackin’, Da Coco and Nutty.
I dip into Shredded every time I use this palette. It’s a great base color. I also really love the matte shade Coolada for cooler looks, which is what I usually do with this palette. My very favorite shade is Coco Crush. It’s a beautiful lid color and I apply it every time I use this palette.
My least favorite shade is Palm Reader. It’s chunky like a glitter and sheer. Da Coco, the other shimmer in the palette, is dry and doesn’t blend easily. The mattes all work well.
I have to say I really like this palette. It’s compact and easy for travel, and it’s great for everyday looks. But, I do create the same look each time I use it. It’s a pretty look, but the same each time, LOL!
I do recommend this palette if you like a basic neutral look and something that you can use everyday.
Do you have this palette? What is your favorite Colourpop palette?
