Colourpop Truly Madly Deeply Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette arrived yesterday at ulta.com and I so want it but damn those pressed glitters. Sure, Fall is on the way but I can so get on board with a pretty pink palette and that’s exactly what the Truly Madly Deeply Eyeshadow Palette brings to the table.
First off, I think this is an Ulta Exclusive and if that’s the case Yay Ulta! Sephora carried Colourpop for a really brief flash in the pan moment but I’m happy to see that Ulta still carries the brand and they even keep add more items like recently released Lip Crayons (which ARE AWESOME). Granted, they tend to carry only a few shades of a product where as purchasing from Colourpop you’ll get a huge array of shades. But it’s still nice having access to Colourpop at Ulta.
The palette looks really pretty. I’m quite in love the assortment of peachy pinks and mauves. However, it contains Pressed Glitters. WHY!?!? WHYYYYYYYYYYYY!? It looks like there about five in here maybe more out of a total of 12 shades. I think Colourpop needs to just stop with the Pressed Glitters. They would be better of spending time on creating a sparkly eyeshadow formula rather than putting in these unsafe for eye glitters that are super chunky, gritty, and a pain to apply without having mega fall out everywhere. For anyone who hasn’t tried the glitters in the past they are very loosely packed with a gel-like consistency! They remind me of Wet n Wild’s Halloween Palettes! The formula is a pain because it gets everywhere and reminds me of craft glitter. A better option would be to include some sparkly eyeshadows. These Pressed Glitters are not meant for use on the eyes because they do have a chunkier formula and could cause irritation or god forbid cuts.
At $23 I’d have purchased this in a heart beat as it’s fairly affordable and the shade range is gorgeous but the Pressed Glitters have me shaking my head no.
What do you think of the Colourpop Truly Madly Deeply Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette?
