Easy Green Springtime Look with NYX Love You So Mochi Electric Pastels Palette

Spring is almost here! Stepping into the season with my new NYX Love You So Mochi Electric Pastels palette which I am OBSESSED with. The eyeshadows are super soft and buttery, and I found they went on best when applied with my fingers as they're pretty shimmery. A couple of the more gold colors would be great doubled as highlighters too. 

I am usually more of a browns and pinks kind of girl, so green is a bit outside of my norm, but since I've started this blog I've been trying to add more variety into my makeup routine. What do you think about this, are these colors you'd rock?

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.

Colourpop Yes Please Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

Guys, I'm so excited I was able to get my paws on this Colourpop Yes Please eyeshadow palette. I feel like warm, hot tones are very in and I'm having a lot of fun spicing up my makeup looks with reds and oranges.

I don't have a ton of experience with Colourpop eyeshadows, as I'm more of their lippie girl, but for $16 and for all the hype, I had to try it out.

I swatched all the colors for you guys to take a look. I'm Asian (duh) with a fierce yellow undertone, so some of these colors will obviously look a little different on you.

First impressions are that the shadows are pretty pigmented, especially the glittery tones, but are a little loose. A little color on your makeup brushes will go a long way, and the darker colors may experience some fallout, so you might want to do your foundation after you've done your eyeshadow. I experienced the most fallout with the darkest shade, French Kiss. 

 
 

The colors blend really well and I love how many different shades there are to play with. Here's a look using the palette and I added an ombré lip using a Coloupop Ultra Matte Lip in First Class and Wet n Wild's Liquid Catsuit in Coral Corruption.

This goes without saying but I'll say it anyway, I bought this on my own, and Colourpop probably doesn't even know who I am. My overall impression is that it's a great deal for $16, especially compared to some of the pricier cult fave palette like Urban Decay's Naked palettes (Which I'm also obsessed with.)

It's currently as of writing this sold out, but if you follow the Colourpop Instagram or Facebook they always let you know when a restock is coming.
