I was excited about the release of this palette as it looked beautiful on their site. Prior to this I have never tried any pressed eyeshadows from Colourpop, I had only tried their super shock shadows which I totally adore. I could talk for days and days about them, and I have done many posts about them as I always pick up some new ones whenever I make an order. I have read some fabulous reviews regarding their pressed eyeshadows. This palette is in collaboration with Kerreuche and is named the She palette.

When it arrived it was a lot smaller than I thought it was going to be. Most of my other palettes which I already own are much bigger, but this is actually a really good size for travel and I took it to Amsterdam for that exact reason. I was super happy by the price tag attached to this as well as it was only $16 which is approximately £12.

So down to the nit and grit of the palette. I have used this numerous times now since purchasing it and I have been really happy with the colour pay off in particularly. I usually expect that in order to get good quality eyeshadows I am going to have to pay £30+ for a decent palette. I have tried many high street palettes over the years, and I have to say I have become a bit of a snob as I have spent many tenners here and there and I have never been impressed. I decided to buy a few really good quality palettes which are going to last me a while and give me excellent value for money.

The shade range is great and contains eight metallics and four mattes. The theme of the palette is different rose toned shades, which you can use individually or collaboratively to correct a wide range of looks. There are peachy, pink and purple shades in different finishes which I have really enjoyed using. When I think about pink shades I always think back to those bright dark pink shades that I used to use as a teen, and my mum would always say that my eyes look bloodshot. My eyes are blue and I think that with the right tone of pink shadow it can really look great on me.

I have been reaching for the soft champagne and light peachy tone shadows on the top row to create a base. I have been loving using Mademoiselle which is a metallic rose gold blended all over the lid. When I went on a night out recently, I blended Filly which is darker copper toned shadow in to the outer corner and it looked really beautiful. To my surprise, I have also been enjoying using the matte shades as I wouldn't usually reach for them. In particularly, I have liked using Dear and Duchess which are both coral toned shades on a day when I want something simple on my lids with just a dash of mascara.

There are endless looks both simple and more smokey which you can create with this palette. I am definitely wanting to try more of their pressed shadows as I have so far been very impressed with them. Time and time again, whatever new product I try from Colourpop I have never once been disappointed. Their brand offers such a wide range of products and always for such great prices. On this occasion it has gone to show I did not need to spend £30 on an eyeshadow palette.
