I’ve been loving hot pink eyeshadow. After months of seeing it everywhere online, I finally decided to try it. I normally don’t wear colorful shadow, I stick with my neutrals (here’s a link to my go-to neutrals) but I’ve been playing around with different colors and have been loving pink. Not wanting to spend a ton of money on a hot pink palette I went with the Colourpop Ooh La La palette and I’m so happy I did. Not only is this palette only 12 dollars it has some of the best quality shadows I’ve tried in a long time. You get 9 shades, a mirror, and a great mix of matte, metallic, and satin shadows.
Tickled: soft opalescent pink with violet, pink, & blue glitter flip
Soft Core: matte warm pink
Poodle: matte vibrant true pink
Big Sugar: bright bubblegum pink with a silver sheen
Opulent: bright fuchsia with a blue sheen
Sandbar: matte neon pink
Trove: matte raspberry
Caddy: vibrant deep violet
Moon Struck: metallic peachy gold
I was really impressed with how well these Colourpop shadows blend and how pigmented they are. I didn’t have any issues with fallout, which I was kind of surprised about since this is such a bright palette. Even with the glittery shade “Tickled” I had no fallout and I didn’t even need to wet my brush to put it on my lid. I found with this shade since it’s such a thick glitter using a dry brush and packing it on works the best. I tried my finger and it wasn’t as bright. This has definitely become one of my go-to shades!
To create this look, I used 4 of the shades in the palette. I started with Poodle in the crease, and I built that up to be a pretty dark pink. I then went in with Sandbar, I didn’t put this one as high up in the crease as Poodle. After I blended Sandbar I put a little bit of Opulent to deepen the crease. After I got everything how I wanted, I added Tickled to the lid and the inner corner of my eye! Since I had never really played with pink shadows I really took my time to do this look, but now that I know how well these shadows work this look really only takes a couple of minutes!
To sum it all up even if you only wear a pink look a few times this palette is definitely worth it at only $1.33 a shadow. Majority of these shadows could be used with another neutral palette to create a different look. I have yet to find a Colourpop palette that I haven’t loved!
