Colourpop Golden State of Mind Review and Swatches

After one to two months of contemplating and lemming for this palette, I finally gave in and bought one. I love shimmery shades for eyeshadows, so this is too pretty to pass!
Gaahhh... I knew I have to get one before this one goes out of stock - forever! 
This palette is Limited Edition, by the way.

This palette retails for $26 at Colourpop's website.

It has 15 shades and weighs 1 gram each, so it sums up to 15 grams for the whole palette.
For reference, each individual Colourpop Supershock eyeshadow weighs 2.1 grams and retails for $5 each.

Close-up of the palette


First row

Zero Clue: vibrant warm yellow
Watch Out: golden ivory with pink glitter

Second row

I have noticed that the shades look darker on the pan than on the swatches.

- affordable
-compact and lightweight
- unscented
-pigmented even without primer
-easy to apply
- it has a nice selection of neutral shades that can be used during daytime or nighttime.

- doesn't have a matte shade (but it doesn't bother me, I can use a separate transition shade)
- some may find it too shimmery or glittery
-some shades are crumbly

To avoid glitter fall-outs, this eyeshadow is best applied with your fingertips or a firm synthetic brush dampened with water or setting spray.

I highly recommend this palette if you are a fan of shimmery eyeshadows! 

Till next time,

Till next time,
