Pop’s Day to Play Palette Review

Another Pop Review for you guys 😉

I’ve been playing with the Day to Play Palette for about two weeks now and I must say it’s fantastic. Remember I mentioned this during the holidays? Click!

This particular kit is a gorgeous wallet style with a cute button clasp. The package definately sells it for me as it’s really cute for toting around. It almost looks like a checkbook style wallet. This comes with a brush as well and a little brush loop inside the wallet for attaching it.


Without Flash

This particular palette is quite a steal for the price at $42 USD which is about $1.75 USD per a strip of color as you get 24 shades of fabulous shadows.

If you don’t have a vast collection of eyeshadow and are looking to start one up so you’ll have a variety of looks you can create this little palette is definately alot of bang for your buck. With 24 shades you can create a multitude of looks ranging from natural and elegant to loud and outrageous!

I’ve been using the top part for the past few days as it contained the most Muse Approved colors that ranged from bold greens and blues to beautiful pinks and reds.

The top half the palette contains all the vibrant popping shades where as the bottom contains more natural shimmering shades of browns, pinks, and pastels.



This is also particularly great for beginners or those of you afraid of a little color. I love how Pop always includes a handy little card of color in with the packaging to show you which colors work well together and what sort of looks you can create using the palette.

Color Card: Instructions for different looks!

The colors are of good pigmentation and blend very easily but lack too much shimmer which is sometimes a deal breaker for the Muse but since the colors are so lovely I can’t complain over much! They have a very fine sheen of shimmer but not an overload which can be good since fall out isn’t a major problem plus it makes them easier to work with!

I know a few people who had expressed interest in buying this when I did my original post and I’m here to say it’s definately worth your time. Pop does a range of these palettes but this is by far the nicest I’ve seen. Most of the older palettes they did contained 12 shades of shadow but they are now doing bigger and better palettes which also include blushes. I’m really loving these at the moment as simplicity is becoming a daily part of my regime.

The brush included with this is plenty to create the look you desire. One end is a fluffy eyeshadow brush and the other is a flat liner style brush.

All in all Pop gets my vote for cool palettes as of late. Simplicity with a range of gorgeous colors!

Cheers to that!

The Muse like the Pop Day to Play Palette and recommends having a peek at it!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Well, yesterday I was standing at the POP-counter, looking at the eyeshadow palettes and all the other stuff. I know how you praised the palette with the bright colours, neons, right? I looked for it but didn’t find it. It ended with me not buying POP but MAC. I simply walked over to take a quick glance at what’s left of Fafi and couldn’t resist a Paint Pot. I bought Rubenesque and I think it was a good thing to do. I haven’t really tried it on yet, but I am thinking maybe I will tomorrow.
    The bad thing is I got a little craving for one of the Fafi palettes now. And maybe paint pot Cash flow. It took some time before that collectoin actually grew on me, but now… well, we’ll see if it last the week. If I still “need” it next Sunday, I’ll buy it then!

    I bought the Pop Rose Belle Blush Palette and after using it for a day, it made me break out all along my cheeks =(

    OMG I love this pallet so many colors and so cheap! The brush rocks too! I happened to come to sephora when they had the creator Sara Strand and she put this on me eheh!

  • Aarti

    Oh i just love this palette! It’s perfect to bring along with you and turn your day look into a night one. Gorgeous! 🙂

    BTW, that 80s FOTD rocked! I’m loving those fucshia eyes 😉


  • the Muse

    hey sminkan!

    Yes! The neon one is awesome. You probably haven’t gotten it your side of the world yet 😉 but I think you’ll love it when you do!

    awww poo! I don’t like PP’s that much 😛

    But I do look forward to seeing what you create using it 😉

    I really loved fafi. It had some killer colors. I got cash flow myself as it was so pretty.

    Looking forward to hear if you haul any of it or not 😉


  • the Muse

    hiya Christina!

    aw I’m sorry to hear that 🙁 Are you sensitive? 🙁 No breakouts for me. The texture was so light and silky I’m shocked to hear you broke out. Where did you purchase it? Sephora accepts returns without a prob so cross my fingers thats where you purchased!

  • the Muse

    hiya Anonymous!

    Agreed 100%! It’s such a vast collection for a little price!

    Oh wow! That’s very cool 🙂 Got any pics of the look she created on you!? Love to see!

    Very exciting 🙂

  • the Muse

    hiya Aarti!


    me too 🙂 I agree. it’s nice for toting around and going from natural to evening bold!

    Awww thanks! I really appreciate it 😉 I was loving the bright fucshia myself 😉 hehe. w00t! Thanks so much I’m glad you liked it!

  • Gee

    I guess this is another item to add to my Pop list!! I still have yet to get the Pop Glow palette…

    But all their palettes are really good deals since they have so many colors~

    I wish I had a money growing tree 😛

    Yeah I do have sensitive skin…the Clinique 3-step system ruined my skin and made my skin-tone completely uneven. I pretty much only use Cetaphil moisturizing lotion now. I bought the Rose Belle palette at Ulta =\..I’m pretty sure they allow you to return used products but maybe they only give you store credit =(


  • the Muse

    hey gee!

    😉 Your wish list is growing longer my little jedi hehe 🙂

    god..I wish I had money growing on a tree too. If you come across said tree do share. and I’ll do the same if I happen across one 😉

  • the Muse

    hi there again Christina!

    Aww sorry love. I’m dry skin and tough as nails 😉 nothing makes me break out! Aside from pms that is!

    aww honey I’m sorry. Have you tried a whitening agent to even the skintone out? Unbelievable 🙁 You sound very super sensitive. Also Philosophy does a few items for problems with skin pigmentation!

    Aww 🙁 The good news is Ulta does return and they should give you back your money with your sales receipt!

    if they only give a store credit maybe buy yourself something else?

    Sorry about your breakout love 🙁

    big hugs to help it clear up fast!
