I’ve been testing this palette for two weeks so far and now it’s time for me to write a review of it.
The palette comes from the ColourPop brand as a part of the Disney collection.
The price on the official site is $20.
I’m obsessed with eyeshadows. I’d even say that I’m too much into them, that’s why from time to time, I buy some eyeshadow palettes, not for some reasons but just because I like it. I love the ColourPop eyeshadows because they present the best price/quality correlation. And when I saw this Disney collection I immediately understood that I need this palette despite many negative reviews on the internet (yes, guys, this was the second time in my life when I bought a palette just because of the packaging, despicable me).
In fact, I didn’t expect much from it and that’s for the better. As for the quality, the palette is different from those which I already have from ColourPop and this one is worse.The first row -
all the shades are matte and basic there. In general, I can’t say anything bad about them. Maybe they’re a little bit dry and falling out. But they are okay to work with. Moreover, the pigmentation is good, as well as the blending. In my book, the darkest shade Abu isn’t dark enough. But it’s only to my liking. Not everyone will need the blackest black in the palette. The second row
is my heartbreak. The glitter bits are too big there and the colors lack pigments. That’s why they look like a pressed glitter, which isn’t of such a good quality.
Apply them over a sticky base with your finger because the texture is too flaky and dry. The first and second shades in the row are more like toppers because they require good packing to get at least visible color. The third row
is doubtful. The shade Enchanted rose (the first one) is my eternal love - it’s soft, a bit creamy by touch and somehow it reminds me of the shimmer shades from the hyped Norvina palette. And it’s also awesome in color.
The next two are Poison Apple and Magic Carpet aren’t bad shimmers, you see. But still, they are worse than those from the Fem Rose palette, for instance.
The products are easy to apply and blend out. They almost don’t fall out.
The shade Beast is my grief. This is that very brown shade which is dark brown in the pan and swatches, however, it blends out into a chunky brick dust of pigment and leaves streaky and patchy finish behind. I was dreaming of using it for the outer Vs, but no. I’ve tried to apply it with different brushes, primers and even tried to blend it out a lot. But you know, it isn’t worth all that. There are many other good quality brown eyeshadows, even from ColourPop too, which won’t require so much effort and time.
And the last one is black. The black shade with lumpy glitter, which I like, I think. It isn’t bad in quality but I can’t say that I’m raving about it.
Overall: the palette honestly deserves 3 stars. The color selection is okay but still, it feels as though there’s something missing about it. The quality is rather questionable. For the same money, I can buy some other eyeshadow palette, even from the same ColourPop brand, which will be much better quality-wise. Will I recommend it to my friends? No, especially those who are newbies, because the palette really requires a lot of skills. Do I regret buying it? Of course not! There are Princesses on it after all. *_*
