The Colourpop Peachy Keen Foursome ($18) launched several months ago and included four full-size Colourpop Super Shock Shadows in Crimper, Kennedy, Cornelius, and Bandit. This set launched along with the Colourpop Just Peachy Lip Bundle around the holidays and with my hopes that all things peach, orange, and coral might make a come back for Summer I picked it up (although that hope is dying a slow death considering at the moment all things Unicorn, Mermaid, and Metallic seem to be the order of business in the beauty world).
Now that the weather is warming up I’m starting to haul out all my peach, tangerine, coral, and orange maybe and this Colourpop Peachy Keen Set fits right in.
The set comes housed in a cute white box with a peach shaped pull off sleeve. It’s a rather cute presentation! Inside the box you’ll find four full-size eyeshadows which would typically set you back $20 but purchasing the set at $18 gets you a savings of $2. I’m not going to go into a full review of the Super Shock Shadow formula because I’ve reviewed it time and time again on my site and you can learn about it by clicking here.
This set is visually pretty together but slightly challenging when creating a look as the colors don’t seem to contrast and work together as well as they look together if that makes any sense. I struggled a little incorporating Cornelious into the look and at first even Bandit gave me a little bit of an issue. Kennedy was disappointing sheer and not as peachy as I had hoped for but works as a color wash of sorts and a base for Bandit and Crimper.
For my look below I layered a ton of Kennedy all over my lid, it’s sheer you need a ton. After that I was all, “OMG I look horrible!” It’s true, this isn’t the most flattering peach in my makeup life. It’s a very pale peach and I had a feeling after applying it all over my lid that I was going to have a hard time using the other shades in the set especially Bandit which is actually a very dark rusty brown. I questioned how this was going to all play out. I decided to do a very sheer wash of Bandit on my outer corner and proceeded to pat a bot of Crimper on my eye! BAM! It was an instantly sunny look! I was worried that Bandit would be too overpowering to work with Kennedy but turns out the shades bounce off each other nicely. Although, I’m still struggling with Cornelious that seemed to be the odd shade out. I was surprised how much I liked the end result considering how the colors didn’t look like they would jive well together.
In the end, the Colourpop Peachy Keen Foursome wasn’t quite the peachy look I was seeking but it did create a very Spring-friendly look that will work well into the Summer!
