Hello my beauties, welcome back! I’m so sorry for the hiatus, we didn’t have internet for about a week! I’m back now and today it’s time for another installment in my Colourpop palette series.
Palette number five is the Kathleen Lights x Colourpop So Jaded palette. I know the norm is three looks with one palette, especially one of this size but I just ran out of time and wasn’t able to get a third or fourth look done. This is one of my newer palettes from Colourpop and it has quickly become one of my favorites! There is a good selection of colors that are warm and cool-toned so it can appeal to anyone’s favorite. I did one warm-toned look and one cool-toned look. The quality of this palette is spot on with what I’ve come to expect from Colourpop. The shadows are very soft, they have a gorgeous color pay off, and they blend and layer like a dream. I used a mix of brushes and my fingers to create the looks I am about to share with you but that’s how I use any eyeshadow palette. Let me show you what I created!
Let’s start with the warm tones, shall we? I love warm-toned eyeshadows, they are definitely my thing.
– Crease/Transition: Royal Jewels
– Outer ‘V’: Rose Quartz
– Outer half lid: Ruby
– Inner half lid: Sunstone
– Center lid: Diamond (Super Shock Shadow)
– Inner corner/Brow bone: Pearl
I am head over heels for the shade ‘Ruby’! It’s stunning and beautiful and works great applied with a brush or applied with your finger. I liked adding ‘Diamond’ in the center of my lid because I love that subtle Halo eye look. It is a Super Shock Shadow but so far it hasn’t dried out or anything so I’m thrilled. I used some very neutral shades for the crease and outer ‘V’ because I didn’t want it to clash or make this look a smokey eye. I think that this combination would make a great everyday look for the fall and winter, it’s easy to do and it’s not too in your face either.
Here we have the cool-toned look.
– Crease/Transition: Turquoise
– Outer ‘V’: Sapphire
– Outer half lid- Alexandrite
– Inner half lid- Aquamarine
– Inner corner/ Brow bone- Pearl
This look definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone. I rarely, if ever, reach for blues but I thought I’d give it another try for this post. I was pleasantly surprised at how easily the shades went on and that they were easy to blend. In my experience, blues are a pain to work with but not these. The shades really worked well together and the ‘Alexandrite’ shade has a bit of a purple hue to it which added a bit of dimension to my outer lid. I am honestly surprised by how much I like this look. It’s definitely not an everyday kind of look but it would be great for events or going out.
