Colourpop I Think I Love You Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

Colourpop is killin' it with their eyeshadow palette game lately. The citrus colored palette Yes Please, the pretty pink She Palette, and one of their latest palettes, the I Think I Love You Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette. I reviewed and swatched the Yes Please Eyeshadow Palette in another post you can check out here if you want to.

This eyeshadow palette is made up of 12 shades of neutral and warm toned glitter and matte shades. I LOVE the glitter shades. They're super pigmented, and especially with a glitter primer they really pop. The matte shades, I gotta be honest, not too impressed by. There is SO MUCH FALL OUT.

The lighting on this photo is super weird, but you can see the intense fall out happening under my eye from using the black shade, "Let's Do It."

There's no great way to prevent the fall out from happening, but you can skip the under eye concealer part of your makeup routine until after you finish your eyeshadow to prevent having to re-do it.

Fall out aside, I did like the looks I was able to create with the shades. I feel like it was missing one or two shades. I would have liked a shade between Belair and My Type, or a darker shade between My Type and "Let's Do It." The highlight shades are a high point and really pop in contrast to the darker shades.

I also found the shades very similar to Urban Decay's Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette, which was probably not a coincidence.

Overall, I found the ITILY palette decent, but it is my least favorite of Colourpop's eyeshadow palettes so far. The Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette is $54, and the Colourpop I Think I Love You palette is only $16, which makes it a great alternative to the UD one if you're on a budget. If you already have one of them, I don't think you need the other.
