MONOCHROMATIC PINK PALETTE? YESSSSS! COLOURPOP OOH LA LA PALETTE REVIEW & SWATCHES
You guys, I know I just did another eyeshadow palette review last Wednesday (the Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions palettes), but bear with me. There’s an actual reason I’m bringing these to you back to back, and that’s because this palette is the one I chose to get instead of the Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions Pink palette. I enjoyed both the Orange and the Green palette for different reasons, but when it came to the pink palette, I just felt like it was a little repetitive. I would have gotten it only to have one true neon pink, which I’m getting in this Colourpop palette (shade Sandbar), for $12 instead or $29. No brainer, right?
Even more so if you consider the fact that on top of that super bright neon shade, you also get 8 other pink(ish) shades, some super light and soft, some bright and bold. I just felt like if I wanted a monochrome pink palette with a neon shade in it, this was the way to go. If you’re a regular on here, you also know how obsessed I am with Colourpop in general, but especially their monochromatic palettes - See the full review + swatches of the purple and blue palettes RIGHT HERE.
And just like the 2 other monochromatic palettes I tried from Colourpop, I love that you get such varied shades in this one as well. As you can see with these swatches on the right, you get two light shimmery shades (Tickled and Moon Struck), one being a gorgeous cotton candy pink with blue reflects and one being a gorgeous pinkish gold. You also get 2 light pink matte shades (Soft Core - which is also a stunning transition shade - and Poodle), 3 brighter, bolder shades including 2 shimmers (Big Sugar and Opulent) and one matte super neon shade (Sandbar), as well as 2 darker, more purple-y shades (Trove and Caddy).
Just like all the monochromatic palettes I’ve tried so far, all these shades are super soft and buttery (except for Trove and Caddy, which are a little grittier but still apply really well), they blend amazingly and effortlessly, and they really pop on the eye. The fallout is also pretty minimal, which is really great on such a bright shadow. I didn’t notice it staining my eyelids at all either, which can sometimes happen with red or pink shadows.
I’ve said it before in my previous Colourpop eyeshadow review, but I’ll say it again because I can’t stress this enough: Colourpop makes shadows that compare to some of my most high-end eye shadows, for a price that’s cheaper than some drugstore brands. I don’t know how they do it, but they’re really onto something amazing here, and I hope they keep growing the company, because I really think they’re a game-changer in the beauty industry.
I’ve worn this palette on my eyes several times, but my favourite time was the super bright look I did to match the neon pink crop top I posted about last Friday. You can head over to my Instagram to check out a closeup of the look, and as you can see, it really matched the colour of the top to a T.
I highly recommend this palette, and I really want to know what you guys thought if you have tried this palette or any of the monochromatic Colourpop palettes! I also want to start posting some makeup looks on here as well, so let me know if you guys have any favourite palette you would want to see 3 makeup looks with.
As always, if you post a picture of you wearing this palette on Instagram, please tag me @thehungarianbrunette so I can see it and repost it on my stories.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post and found it helpful, and I’ll leave you on more pictures of this amazing palette!
Love you guys,
