4 stars out of 5

Colourpop Baby Got Peach Shadow Palette ($12) is a new 9 shade eyeshadow palette that launched with the Colourpop Peaches & Cream Collection recently. These are colors I love so I didn’t hesitate to haul the Big Ole Peach Collection which includes all the pieces from the launch!

I thought I’d break the collection up and share reviews on each piece from the collection starting with the Colourpop Baby Got Peach Eyeshadow Palette!

I really, really love all these monochromatic eyeshadow palettes Colourpop has been releasing lately. They seem really smart to me because we all favor certain shades and reach for those daily why not have a palette that focuses on one particular shade that’s in one palette. It’s pretty clever!

Colourpop Baby Got Peach Eyeshadow Palette arrives in an adorable peach compact that’s small but still packs in a very generously-sized mirror and 8 eyeshadows that are 0.03 oz each as well as 1 pressed glitter that is 0.03 oz each. The only thing missing here is a sweet peach scent ๐Ÿ™‚ That would tip it right over into the awesome zone. None the less, it still has really cute packaging plus the affordability factor still makes it a fantastic little eyeshadow palette. I would change one thing though! Colourpop’s eyeshadow palettes are legendary for containing shades are not eye safe and lucky enough this particular palette only contains two that are not meant for use around the eye area. Obviously, if you have sensitive eyes you want to make sure you aren’t using these on your lids as they might cause irritation. The biggest compliant with non-safe eyeshadows is staining but the two shades, Darlin’ and Centerfold, which are not eye safe didn’t stain my lids. The other shade, Hungry Ghost, is a pressed glitter and not meant around the eye area for obvious reasons.

So…

Here’s what I’d change.

I am slowly coming to terms with the fact not only Colourpop but the entire world of eyeshadow palettes lately contain many pressed pigments not meant to be used on your lid. I’ve ventured into using those despite the warnings (these warnings are apply to anyone living in the US as many times the shades are dubbed perfectly a-ok within Europe and Asia) and haven’t had issues. So, I guess I’m cool with pressed pigments. However, I would change the fact they include pressed glitter in almost all of these monochromatic releases. Does anyone use it? It’s really chunky, it has major fall out, and it’s a danger to have such larger flakes of glitter near your eye. It’s a pointless product to contain in such a beautiful palette. Can’t we just get a sparkly eye safe eyeshadow instead of chunky glitter? I’d totally recommend removing it.

That being said the rest of the shades in the palette are delicious. There are five mattes here all of which are firm but not powdery nor dry, one frost that was a bit powdery but not dry, and two satin shades that had a soft, velvety texture. All the shades apply and blend well. Some of the mattes are truly keeper shades for me as I can see myself using them daily in one and done eye looks! I had no application issues, very little fall out, and I felt like everything blended well here. I do wish Get Even wasn’t as frosty as it applies on me but hey, even that was a shade easy to work with.

Shades:

  • Darlin’ (pale peachy orange)
  • Hungry Ghost (opal with a gold duochrome shift)
  • Perky (light pinky peach)
  • Get Even (vibrant peachy pink with a bright gold flip)
  • Centerfold (vibrant coral)
  • Glaze It (midtone metallic peach with a golden sheen)
  • Okurr (peachy terracotta)
  • Ready Or Yacht (icy tangerine)
  • Half Baked (rust)

All in all, a very nice collection of peachy shades that should appease those who love a good peach eyeshadow palette!

I’m sticking a Muse Approval on it. I think you’ll love it if you enjoy peach shades!

Colourpop Baby Got Peach Eyeshadow Palette is available now.

Where to buy

Colourpop

Colourpop Baby Got Peach Eyeshadow Palette is a new nine shade monochromatic palette that focuses on all peach shades. It’s $12 and the shadows inside are 0.03 oz each. One of the shades is a pressed glitter that is not eye safe and there’s another shade which qualifies as a pressed pigment since it’s not eye safe either. All the shades were pigmented, easy to blend, and had very little fall out. I really liked the palette on a whole but do wish they’d stop including pressed glitters in these palettes as I don’t use them!

Pros

  • Perfect for peach lovers!
  • Cheap and budget friendly.
  • Pigmented, soft, silky shades.

Cons

  • Pressed glitter shade is useless (can’t be used around eyes and tons of fall out!)

Who

Colourpop Baby Got Peach Eyeshadow Palette is an easy pick (and a must have) for anyone who loves peachy eyeshadow shades!

    How pretty. It’s actually peach and not peach that leans so heavily orange that it might as well be called orange. LOL!

    I agree about the chunky glitter. Why not have an eyeshadow that has the reflects in it? It’d be super sparkly and pretty, but wearable.

    • Isabella Muse

      YEAH you’re kind of right ;-D It’s peach but orange but also, terracotta ;-D It’s a really nice selection of shades. AGREED! It’s possible to include a really nice sparkly shadow without it being a big chunky mess of glitter :-/

    Peach shades look great on you! ๐Ÿ™‚ Wish brands would stop including pigments that are not eye safe in eyeshadow palettes, itโ€™s so counterproductive and pointless.

  • OliveUnicorn

    So Iโ€™ve been passing up pretty much all the Colourpop monochromatic palettes due to the glitters . Donโ€™t get me wrong I love sparkles and glitter but every review Iโ€™ve seen the glitters just look way to big and and like an eye irritant. Other than that it looks like a nice peach palette.

    I popped that glitter pan right out of the palette and pitched it. I didn’t want all the glitter to get on the other shades. I did not actually know that these are just pans clinging to a magnet — but was pleasantly surprised how east it was to get it out of there.
