COLOURPOP | You Had Me At Hello Pressed Shadow Palette - Review + Swatches - CassandraMyee

Believe it or not, I am almost there with my Colourpop palette reviews... well until I do another order because they've launched some new palettes of late (dangerous territory...) The You Had Me At Hello Shadow Palette is slightly different from the rest as it includes a large mirror and is slightly higher in price compared to the others sans mirror (USD $18, instead of $16).

I would say this palette is more closely related to the Fem Rosa She Palette with its rosy tones but with more brown neutrals included. This palette has only two finishes, matte and metallic, but to be honest, that is all you really need in a palette right!

The tones in this one are a bit deeper and richer than other palettes and perfect for creating rich smokey eyes. There is still a few lighter shades to make this more everyday appropriate, but if you wanna rock the darker tones daily, I say go for it! The break down of the shades are (swatches from top to bottom):

The Knot | metallic cool-toned ivory
Moon Struck | metallic soft gold
Two Peas | matte peachy beige
Candygram | metallic pinky red with gold duochrome
Winning Ticket | matte dusty mauve pink
FBO | metallic pink violet
Look-See | matte cool-toned plum
Fool's Rush | metallic golden bronze
Pulling Strings | matte warm saddle brown
Want U Back | matte dusty mauve brown
DTR | metallic silvery taupe
Sparks Fly | matte deep plummy brown

Pigmentation wise, they are all really nice. The darkest brown Sparks Fly was a little dry and did drag when I swatched and takes a little bit more effort to blend out compared to the other mattes which are soft and easy to work with. The metallics are always impressive and I've not met one I don't like.

The fact that this one has a mirror might appeal more to some, but I'm not too fussed really as it reduces the chance of it breaking and ruining your shadows. I don't think this palette is a total must-have from the range, but that's not to say it isn't beautiful and certainly, these shades will appeal to a lot of people!

Colourpop ship international for free with orders over USD $50 and this palette is USD $18/NZD $25 approx.
