It has a lovely color story without a single bad shade. The mattes blend beautifully, the metallics are foiled and opaque, and the shimmery toppers are shiny and lovely. Lost half a star in my rating since the bottom center and left shades are too similar, and would have preferred one of them be darker, similar in depth to the dark brown shade. Otherwise, no complaints! Also, you can use some shades as highlights if you like a more sparkly look. Definitely a good palette for work days for me, and really works perfectly with my golden-olive undertones and an earthy, 90s brown lipstick. I look forward to trying the sister palette from this set!

So, I picked this palette up at my local Ulta a few days ago. I'm not sure if maybe mine is a bad batch of these or what, but I've tried using this palette three times now, and honestly this is probably one of the worst eyeshadow palettes I've ever owned. Nevarro Sand isn't too bad, it has the same quality as older Colourpop mattes I own, but it is very loose and powdery in the pan. Creed has sparkles in it, and they do get everywhere, but that's pretty normal for Colourpop's matte sparkle formula. Otherwise its easy to use and blend, and can be mixed with Nevarro Sand pretty well without starting to look muddy. Tatooine Glimmer, in my opinion, is the best performing eyeshadow in this palette. Its smooth and feels almost creamy. Its very easy to use, and has minimal fallout even with a dry brush, but I prefer to use my fingers. Clan of Two just fades into nothing very quickly on me. I have tried using it over two separate primers, on set concealer, with a wet brush. Even just swatching it onto my arm, it fades away into nothing but some lime greenish looking sparkles within twenty minutes to a half hour. Imperial Credit and Beskar Steel also fade away very quickly on me, but not as quickly. They both also have a lot of fallout, and feel very very powdery, and just didn't want to really stick to my skin unless I used a wet brush. This is the Way, Mythosaur, and Bantha Tracks just crumble off of my eyes almost instantly. I don't really understand how or why, but all three shades just will not sit on my eyelids, and end up all over my under eyes and cheeks.

This was my first colourpop palette and I'm not impressed. The mattes are very hard to blend and except for Transform the shimmers have too much glitter to be useful for every day. I put on several shades this morning and by midday most were invisible, particularly mine games which i had applied to the lid - only glitter was left! Rock on in particular is an absolute glitter bomb. For such a "wearable" neutral palette I wasn't expecting all this glitter. The colors look nice in the pan but don't translate on the lid. If nothing else this palette helped me learn that I prefer warm tones to cool tones on myself. Thanks...?

I had really high hopes for this palette considering I'm a fan of neutrals and cool shades. Unfortunately this palette didn't deliver. Some of the shades were very nice (Cold Blooded, Snake Eyes and Constrictor) were very nice and applied well. Slated, however, was a waste of space. I tried applying with a brush, sponge applicator, and fingertip and it just won't adhere. Additionally, the mattes were very chalky and didn't blend well. I tried skipping primer and I still had the same difficulty. I won't pitch this because with the exception of Slated, I really like the shimmers but the rest of the palette was just meh.

This has easily become on of my favorite eyeshadow palettes. The formula, like all Colourpop shadows I've tried, is buttery, easily blended and generously pigmented. One thing a lot of people were saying about this palette is that one of the shadows (the Force) tends to fall out of the pan for some reason. Luckily for me this has not happened, but I still make sure to never store this palette on its side, to be safe. The Child is described as an olive tones palette, but in addition to olive greens there is also a lovely seafoam green, a chocolate brown that I love, as well as some pretty metallics.

On the biggest downsides of this palettes is that its matte shades really tint the eyelids. Otherwise metallics are nice and creamy, quite versatile colour story as well for being a monochromatic palette. It's a very specific piece of makeup as you can only get a lot of use out of it either if it's green suits you like no other or if you enjoy St.Patrick's all year round! As almost all ColourPop palettes, very powdery but rather easy to blend.

Absolutely adore this palette. It's like a toned-down version of ABH Soft Glam. I'm fair with dark brown eyes/hair, and the ABH palette pulled so red on me that I sold it to a friend after only a few uses. The Colour Pop one is much more wearable and I'd argue that it's same or better quality than the prestige palette - no fallout from the mattes and the shimmers provide just as much payoff. I love having a warmer option in my collection that I can use for everyday or nights out. Absolutely worth it.
