First Impression Fridays

First Impression Friday – The Zodiac Collection

I can’t lie, ColourPop has released so many new products lately that I got a little jaded and when I saw this new collaboration with Kathleen Lights, I was going to skip it. I didn’t think that the palette looked super wearable but now that I have seen it and swatched it, I know I am going to get a lot of wear out of it. I purchased the bundle and though I haven’t worn anything yet, thought I would share a little peek:

This twelve pan palette has purples, blues, browns and a stunning black with gold sparkle. Now, I wasn’t totally sold on The Capricorn being a black shadow but then I realized that I am that bitch sitting at her desk at work noticing that her black doesn’t match. It’s perfect and will be a great companion palette to the Dream Street collab that was released a few months ago.

There are two highlighters/cheek colours in the collection, On The Cusp and Fire which are both the buttery smooth formula that we expect from Colourpop.

Finally, there are two Creme Lux Lipsticks and Supernova Liquid eyeshadows. I really enjoy their lipstick formula so while these shades aren’t totally unique, I will get some wear out of them. The nude shade is What’s Your Sign and the purple/plum is Scorpio Moon – both are very lovely and will complement just about any look you can come up with using the palette. The liquid shadows are Astrology (gold) and Constellation (champagne) again, not shades that I haven’t seen before but these are also really great formulas and will get used up.

The entire collection is really stunning, from the graphics and detailing on the packaging to the colour stories – I love it. I cannot wait to give everything a try! Did you pick up anything from this collection?

    I feel like I need to get my hands on the palette, if not for the gorgeous colours, then for that insane packaging!! Might be one of my favourite packaged palette’s in a while! xx

      I was stunned when I opened the palette, not even exaggerating 😂 It’s really pretty, she did such a nice job! Definitely recommend checking it out!!

    I love love love the packaging but I almost feel like I have many of those shades in the zodiac palette which is discouraging me from getting it. I’m just tying to hit pan on the stuff I have before I go out and purchase more makeup that I don’t need (yet)

      There are some shades that are very similar to shades in other ColourPop palettes. I was kind of surprised when I started comparing it to other shadows that I have from them. I still like it and the packaging really is lovely but you’re right, definitely dupes out there!

      It really is!! It’s a perfect treat yourself, I hope you find a reason to gift yourself <3
