Hi Y’all! I have a very exciting post about my most recent eye shadow obsession. The best part, you ask? It is SO affordable – only $12!! I’m excited to review the new ColourPop Mar palette. This beautiful bronze and blue toned palette is perfect for summertime as well as an everyday palette if you are into the peachy bronzy vibe. This is not a drill people!
This palette features 9 pressed shadows, which are my favorite ColourPop eye shadow formula. They have insane pigment payoff and minimal fall out. You will see a bit of kick back from the palette, but I don’t mind that at all for the blendibility and color payoff.
Here are the shades from top left to bottom right (swatches below):
- El Rey: Peachy gold metallic finish
- Wild One: Copper metallic with a orange undertone
- Detour: True matte cobalt blue
- Boozy: Orange metallic with a golden shimmer
- Gridlock: Teal metallic with a slight silver shimmer
- Sorbet: Mid-toned brown with peach undertone
- Hwy: True sea foam green metallic with gold shimmer
- Top Down: Deep matte dark chocolate
- My Way: Bronze metallic copper
If I had to choose my three favorite shades from this palette, they would be My Way, Gridlock, and Hwy. The pigment on these shades are SO intense. You don’t need to use a setting spray to dampen your brush to get intense payoff, but if you do, you will have some SERIOUS glam going on. I love the teal and sea foam green shade for a lower lash line pop of color.
Also, shout out to ColourPop for putting a mirror in this palette! It is such a sleek and compact palette, which makes it perfect for weekend getaways or traveling during the summer. I love that there is a matte brown shade for a crease color – I think this is a staple for every palette.
I think its a great palette if you are wanting to start to dabble in non-neutral shades. Plus, you can use the peachy shade El Ray all over the lid and blend Sorbet, the mid-tone peachy brown in the crease and outer-v of the eye and have a neutral summer eye.
I’ve been reaching for this palette ever since I got it in the mail, and I just can’t get enough. Overall the pigmentation is spot on, the blendablity of the shades are amazing, and I love the color story. I don’t have one bad thing to say about this palette…other than it is currently out of stock 😉 I will link this palette for you below!
