I remember seeing the sneak peaks of the ColourPop She Palette in collaboration with Karrueche Tran and I absolutely knew I had to get my hands on it. First, let’s talk about my reasons why. Hello, look at the packaging of this gorgeous beauty. And, the color selection, my oh my, this palette literally had me at Hello… seriously, can you hear Lionel Richie whispering…??? “Hello, is it me you’re looking for?” YAAAASSSSS… take my money NOW. haha! All kidding aside, the moment I seen sneak peaks of this palette, I knew I had to have it and the FEM ROSA name for the collection sold me more because Rosa is my middle name. So, when it was first released, I hopped on the website and placed my order. I have had in my possession now for quite a while and I’ve been busy playing with it and having an absolute ball. So today, I’m sharing my thoughts and photos of this gorgeous palette with all of you. I also picked up the Her Cheek Palette which I’ll be sharing a bit about as well.
So, the ColourPop SHE palette has been sold out and released a few times since its initial launch. I honestly can imagine why… seeing as it’s become one of my favorites since I got my hands on it a few weeks back. If you are a fan of rosey hues like myself, you’ll definitely enjoy this. I got a free lippy since I purchased over a certain amount and it’s a gorgeous metallic shade as well. But, anyway – let’s talk SHE Palette, shall we? The packaging on this beauty is what absolutely won me over. I have a small selection of favorite florals and roses are definitely one of them. Also, if you know anything about me, purple is my favorite color, so I was won over by the packaging and shade selection alone. Retailing for just $16.00, ColourPop’s SHE Palette is a total steal.
You get a selection of gorgeous and butter mauve tones and metallic finishes, matte and satin as well. These shades are absolutely perfect for Fall or year round. Twelve very pigmented colors to wow anyone and again, for the price point, it’s an absolute steal.
1st – Top Row: Left to Right – Ladylike (metallic soft ivory), Babe (satin light peachy pink), Dainty (metallic pinky taupe), Chick ((metallic subtle gold).
2nd – Middle Row: Mademoiselle (metallic rose gold), Gal (metallic red with copper duochrome), Empress (metalliic mid-tone pink plum), Filly (metallic rusty orange)
3rd – Last Row: Dear (matte warm rose), Missy (matte deep burgundy), Damsel (matte smokey violet), Duchess (matte dusty coral).
I honestly think that ColourPop hit this out of the park, because I love the colors included in this palette, the pigmentation, the feel of each of the shadows and of course the packaging. It’s gorgeous and it has been one of my favorite palettes since I got my hands on it.
You get a selection of metallic, matte and satin shades to create gorgeous looks and each shade is complimentary of one another so you have a wide selection of colors to create something awesome. You get 0.85 g worth of product in each shadow (0.03 oz) so for the price point, you really get a great deal. I often find that matte shades can be a difficult formulation for many to create, but these truly are a breeze to work with. Velvety soft and easy to blend for a show stopping look.
I’m using various shades in the SHE Palette to create the look you see here, as well as the free lippy I got from my order, in: Ultra Glossy Lip in Polished. Polished is a gorgeous shade and I applied it all over my lips and then blotted to create a soft muted lip instead of something shiny.
I also wanted to share the ColourPop HER Palette with all of you as well (since they are a part of the same collection). This pressed powder cheek palette includes three shades for a full effect look. A warm dewy glow, flushed pink cheeks and a natural bronze. Honestly, I just got it for the packaging, but I’ve been enjoying the shades and the blush and highlight have been fun to wear as well. I think the matte bronzer is just a tad bit too warm for me, but it works well for use as a transition shade on my eyes and it does work nicely, pigmented and blendable.
This palette retails for $15.00 and you get a pressed powder highlighter in a light gold shade (perfect for deeper skin tones) that has a pearlized finish (net weight 3.85g / 0.14 oz.). A pressed powder blush that has great pigmentation and applies nicely to my cheeks. It’s a pink shade that is a matte finish (net weight 4.35g / 0.15 oz). You also get a pressed powder bronzer that is in a matte finish (net weight 4.0g / 0.14 oz).
As I mentioned previously, I actually was intrigued and inspired to purchase these beauties because of the packaging and the name: “Fem Rosa”. But, after getting my hands on the palettes, I’ve been absolutely loving them. The highlighter shade in the cheek palette is a tad bit too dark for my skin-tone, but it works well with a light hand and it would be beautiful on deeper skin toned beauties. I felt the bronzer is a bit on the warmer side than I would like, but I’ve been getting use out of it nonetheless. The eye shadows, well – they are gorgeous and I’m loving them. They are beautiful “honey” shades and very pigmented. Some of them do kick up a bit of dust so I have to make sure to tap off my brush so that I can really get the payoff I desire. And, of course, the lippy. Not a color I would normally wear but I’ve been enjoying it and it will be wonderful for fall.
The SHE palette is currently out of stock on ColourPop’s website, and the lippy I received free as a part of my order is not available for purchase (that I know of), but the HER palette is definitely for sale and you can check it out for yourself here. Be sure to check out ColourPop on IG so you can get all the deets on when the SHE Palette becomes available for purchase once again.
So what about you, did you get your hands on ColourPop’s SHE Palette, in collaboration with Karrueche Tran? If so, what do you think about it and if not, do you plan to snatch it up the next time it’s available?
