Welcome back! I am feeling very refreshed after my week away and very excited to get back into my blog. Today I’ll be reviewing the new Colourpop Pressed Shadow Palette called I Think I Love You.
I know I am not the only one who has been sucked in by some of the latest releases from Colourpop. Those pressed shadow palettes have intrigued me from their first release, but I have exercised restraint again and again. That is, until I saw the I Think I Love You palette. I finally caved and bought this palette as I was worried it would sell out and never return (my own personal nightmare). If you’d like to know what I think of this palette and see some swatches, keep reading.
If you haven’t heard of Colourpop, please crawl out from under that rock you’ve been hiding under, head straight to their website, and start ordering! You have not lived yet!
All jokes aside, this brand is AMAZING. They are affordable and cruelty free and they are so damn genuine in their business and values! Plus their products are really second to none.
As their website states: Trends come and go, so it’s super important to us that you can keep up with this ever-changing industry without breaking the bank. You can try out the latest trends without serious commitment because our luxury formulas are priced for experimentation.
I absolutely love that about this brand – this is spot on. You can try so many cool beauty trends and products without spending a fortune, which I am all for.
The only downside is the shipping. Colourpop orders take quite a number of weeks to arrive in Australia. Sometimes if they have a new release they can get quite overwhelmed with orders and processing can take a while as well. That is my only gripe, and honestly, it’s a minor one compared with just how good their products are.
With all that said, I’m sure it’s a dead giveaway that I love this palette. I Think I Love You is such an apt name for this palette, because I do love it, and I haven’t heard of anyone who doesn’t so far. This palette consists of neutrals in overdrive, according to the brand. The palette features 12 pressed eye shadows in a range of finishes (but majority are metallic though). This product retails for $16 US (approximately $20 AU) which is incredible value for money.
The quality of this palette really takes my breath away. The shadows are so soft but there is very little fall out/kick back in the pans. When I swatched them initially with my finger I almost passed out. These babies are pigmented! That pigment is certainly not lost when applied to the eyes with a brush. These blend beautifully and easily. I cannot say enough good things about this palette!
Even the packaging is amazing – I love the metallic copper so much. This is a small, cardboard palette, so it’s great for travel. The one downside is the lack of mirror in the palette, but for the price, it’s really not an issue for me personally.
The shade selection is beautiful and if you love neutral/nude looks, you will love this. It has everything you need. If I was being very picky, I would probably get rid of the gold metallic shade (just not drawn to this shade with my skin tone) and replace it with another matte transition shade. Overall, they nailed the shades in this palette. My hands down favourite shade is Screw It, which is the metallic rose gold shade in the bottom left hand corner of the palette.
I highly rate this palette and I recommend picking this up next time you place a Colourpop order! Do it for the free shipping! This palette would be amazing for beginners and would make an excellent present too (especially with Christmas so soon!). Have you tried this palette yet?
