I didn’t think I’d like Animal Crossing but fell in love quickly. It’s just so soothing and given the state of the world, a happy little place I can go to when it seems like all the news is gloom and doom.

With that said, this collection is a miss. I guess my expectations were too high, but I also don’t get why CP is so obsessed with messy glitter.

I’m not super impressed with the eye shadows, especially compared to their existing pallettes that I already have (and of course I just caved and bought the Baby Yoda one right before these come out, lol), and the pressed glitter in each one is pretty disappointing… I really love this game though and the packaging is so cute, I might just buy a lip duo just to have it 😂

I just got a Switch recently and have been playing the heck out of some Zelda (although I have to psych myself up for boss fights cos I’m a coward.) I’ve never tried Animal Crossing but my friends love it and I can see its appeal as a relaxing distraction. Little things that can make us all happy right now, right? But I also don’t see the effort put into this release, plus the glitter shades would be a letdown regardless. I’d love a Zelda collection if they put the work into it.

Now I’m even more disappointed.

I’ve been playing Animal Crossing since the GameCube, so I consider myself more than a casual fan. This only drives home my belief that this is a cheap money grab.

Personally, I may never order another CP product again. I’m tired of their complete lack of effort.

Same, I’m a huge AC fan and the fact that they’re STILL putting in glitters after their consumers beg them not to, it just is a slap in the face to see one in every palette that only have 4 shades. As someone who avoids glitter, this is extremely disappointing and I’ll get my makeup elsewhere until CP can listen to their buyers.

Sadly, I agree. It’s pretty clear CP only cares about churning out as much product as possible for maximum profit. The legitimate complaints from the very folks purchasing these products (pet glitter, non-inclusivity, etc. etc. etc.) are being ignored and if CP wants to play that way, that’s fine. There are many many other brands that get it right, and they’re the brands that I’ll stay devoted to. CP doesn’t need my coin anymore.

I love the lip tints so much! I’m pretty sure I’m going to buy Fruit Roots, but Pick of the Bunch looks like something I would wear, too…

And of course I’m getting Balloon Pop (despite spending so much of my life trying to shoot down balloons to get recipes lol) because I’m a sucker for neutral SSS.

All of the swatches look great! This is such a great collection.

The packaging is cute , but I feel like the shades are bit light. The purple isn’t totally purple based.
The green palette has two shades I like but I don’t think it would be worth it for just two shades. Looks like a pass but I know a few of my friends will like it.

I’m sitting here waiting for the launch in half an hour. This is frankly such a money grab, but I’m still going to get one if I can because I like them enough lol. Colourpop’s quality seems to have become very inconsistent lately. I returned the Baroque palette because it was just awful – mattes rubbery and wouldn’t blend, shimmers had a ton of fallout and chunky ugly reflects that I’d expect from lower-rate brands…maybe I just got a bad one? I have no reason to believe this one will be better; the glitter seems to be similar – I mean either make a shade matte or shimmery, don’t add in this sparse lazy glitter that falls out everywhere for a “slight sparkle,” ha. OK, now that that rant is out of the way – I HAVE been pleased with some of their recent launches, and though this looks kind of meh, I will probably buy one because a) it’s SOOO cute and b) I really like the lavender & brown color schemes, and I could see myself wearing those color stories a lot. Some of the glitter gels look cute too. The lip tint crayons, I feel, are nothing new – they’ve done it before. As usual though, the packaging is really good and I do love glitter, so I might try them….even though I never manage to get them on launch day lol.

I would be less picky and wary of buying from Colourpop if they allowed returns. I’m scared to buy from anywhere but Ulta now. They blame the “low-cost nature of their products” but I don’t think $12-15 a palette is really low-cost? I can understand not returning their sale items because sometimes they are absurdly cheap, but their full price launches? Nah.
