colourpop “It’s a princess thing” palette- Reviews & Swatches

Marhaba Birdies, Happy Weekend 🙂

The colourpop has launched “It’s a princess thing” palette inspired by all the princess of Disney back in year 2018. Well the name Disney has made me to do the purchases. So lets get to the point and explore more about this palette.

Brand claims-
Inspired by the iconic Disney princesses this palette is a dream come true. This 15 pan palette was created in collaboration with Disney and features soft romantic shadows perfect for any look, from daytime sing-a-long glam or a magical ballroom look. This item is limited edition.

My experience with this product-
The palette is packed in a golden cardboard box with 6 Disney Princesses picture on the front cover which is really impressing take you down to the memory lane. The palette has 6 beautiful princess printed on it on black background with golden outline which really make it a standout and also you can find all the name of color shade inside the palette at its back so its very handy. On the opening of the palette you can witness signature of the princes and the shades on the other side with a magnetic closer. I wish they have provided a mirror instead of signature as that would be more handy and travel friendly. Well due to its light weight and sleek size it does qualifies for travel vanity box.

The palette shades are all about to neutrals to dark with few mattes, metallic and more of shimmer. I loved the formula of this shades as they are soft, smooth and easily blendable. The neturals need more work than the darker ones as they are beautifully pigmented. I have witnessed the fallout while using their glitter shades plus as the few colors are off its very difficult to create different eyelooks. Only 4 matte shades (3 light and 1 dark) which is too less plus the color payoff is not great except shade Abu on brown skin. The staying power is amazing and shade does not crease or fade.

Lets dive into the palette-
Chip- a matte soft beige nude with matte finish. The texture is very good with perfect pigmentation may look great with fair skin tone.
Juju- a light pink shade with matte finish. The color payoff is not that great but can help transforming the shade.
Grumpy- It is a medium dusty peach color with matte finish. The color payoff is not that great but can transform the shade.
Triton- It is a medium brown biscuit shade with semi matte finish. The texture is very good with intense pigmentation.
Abu- It’s a brick brown shade with matte finish having very good texture and intense pigmentation.
Prince Charming- an off white metallic pearl shade. The texture is little powder but the pigmentation is very good.
Ray- a metallic champagne gold with metallic finish. The texture and pigmentation is amazing. Also can be used as highlighter.

The color selection is beautiful and looks like more of a festive palette. The shimery and metallic shades are highly pigment but matte ones are disappointing except shade abu. Not an extra ordinary palette so if you don’t have it you have not missed anything major. Custom charges are something you have to bear a good price and it completely depends on the country where you live. You can find good range of palette in drugstore with same price
