I’ve actually been sitting on this one for a while. I’ve been meaning to post it ever since my Holiday Haul post. Unfortunately it had to take a backseat for a while. Better late than never?

When I first saw promo photos for the collection I wasn’t totally sold. It looked great, but I just felt that they were shades I’ve seen already. Nothing really stood out. That is until I started seeing some swatches and looks and decided that I did in fact need it in my life. It really was too pretty to pass up! ColourPop really does go all out for their collections and I admit to falling for the hype. They make it so easy!

This collaboration with Kathleen Lights consists of the Dream St. Pressed Powder Shadow Palette and the Dream Team Lip Bundle. The eyeshadow palette contains 12 eyeshadows. It’s a nice combination of mattes, metallics, and satins. The shadows are all nicely pigmented. The metallics are so soft and creamy that they just glide on! They all applied and blended beautifully. Then again most of their shadows do. I’ve only ever had an issue with a few of their mattes, but that wasn’t at all the case with this palette.

The lip bundle contains an Ultra Glossy Lip in the shade Moon Child which is a pink nude with gold glitter. This was my first time experimenting with their Ultra Glossy Lip. I was not disappointed! It wasn’t super sticky and it didn’t feel heavy on my lips. It was a very comfortable wear. I was very surprised. I wasn’t expecting to love this as much as I did. Next is the Ultra Satin Lip in the shade Dreamy which is a peachy pink. This has to be one of my new favorite shades from ColourPop. It’s gorgeous! I’m really digging the satin formula. It’s so comfortable! Last, but certainly not least is the Ultra Satin Lip in the shade Rêver which is a neon orange red. I had no idea that this was going to be so… neon! When I first put it on I had to take a step back. My first thought was ‘No way in hell am I leaving the house wearing this!’ But after looking at the photos I was convinced that it somehow works (with the palette). I think the more subtle eye look helped to tone it down a bit. I’m really digging it. It’s definitely a unique shade in my collection and a very fun one at that! You can see these lip shades along with the palette in action below.

Overall, I loved this collection. It contained a nice variety of the products ColourPop has to offer and the shades all compliment each other beautifully. I don’t think they still have the PR Collection in stock, but you can still purchase the products separately. I’ve listed them both below.

I feel like I haven’t posted a lot of ColourPop this year. I still have my issues with them, but I caved and made several purchases. Not all of them made it to the blog though. I used to be so excited about my ColourPop orders and couldn’t wait to photograph and blog about my new goodies. I guess things change when the majority of your orders arrive damaged. Thankfully that wasn’t the case with this palette because for the first time in a long time I was excited to post about my ColourPop order.

The All I See Is Magic palette contains 15 eyeshadows.

  • Go Wish – Pastel Peach (matte)
  • Now and Zen – Pale Yellow Gold (metallic)
  • 11:11 – Rose Gold With Silver Glitter (metallic)
  • Treat Yourself – True Ivory (satin)
  • Top Notch – Terracotta Brown (matte)
  • Tinsel Town – Cranberry (matte)
  • Twinkle Toes – Black Gold (metallic)
  • Something Special – Deep Maroon With Purple Glitter (metallic)
  • Wishful Winking – Warm Brown With Teal Duochrome Flip (metallic)
  • Pitter Patter – Rosy Copper With Gold Flecks (metallic)
  • Save It For Later – Amber (metallic)
  • Big Spoon – Pastel Coral (matte)
  • T-Cup – Warm Dusty Taupe (matte)
  • Imperial – Soft Red Orange (matte)
  • Never Never – Dark Chocolate With Multi Dimensional Glitter (metallic)

The colors in this palette really called to me. Those jewel tones get me every time! I just knew it would make for the most colorful holiday look. And ColourPop didn’t disappoint! The shadows were all nicely pigmented. Those metallics glide onto my hand like butter! I found that they applied much better when you gently pat them onto your lid using a dampened brush.

I have to say that this is probably one of my favorite ColourPop palettes. Aside from the shadows being nicely pigmented, they blended beautifully. I’m also loving the shades. While a lot of these scream bold, you could just as easily create a pretty neutral look. I can especially see this making for some nice holiday looks though. You can see a look I created with the All I See Is Magic Palette below.

Overall, I’d have to say this is a must have palette for any ColourPop fan. I kind of cringe when I say that because of how dirty they’ve done me. But I do love their products. And this palette is high up on my list! Have you purchased this palette? If not, what is your favorite ColourPop palette?

Swatches: Heavy Glam, Chic Happens, Lit, Razy

I really can’t stay away from those ColourPop pressed shadows! So far I’ve purchased 3 of their quad palettes and a handful of their single shadows. I ended up transferring all of the pans into a few of their medium sized palettes. But that’s a post for another time. Right now I’m going to talk about $aucey!

$aucey is from ColourPop’s ILUVSARAHII Collection. $aucey contains 4 of their pressed shadows in the shades Heavy Glam which is a vibrant duochrome orange with a pink flip. Chic Happens which is a matte cool mauve. Lit which is a vibrant metallic purple. And Razy which is a matte blackened plum.

The mattes are a little hard compared to the metallics which are so soft they’re almost buttery. But they’re still very easy to work with and very pigmented. They all applied and blended beautifully. Razy can be a little tricky to work with so maybe use a light hand at first and apply more as needed. I went in a little heavy at first and had to wipe it off and start over. It went much smoother the second time around using a light hand and applying more as needed.

The shades included in this palette all compliment each other nicely and made for a beautiful look. I did have to reach for another palette for a highlight shade, but it wasn’t an issue for me. If you were planning to take this on a trip you could always remove one of the pans and replace it with another.

This palette is still in stock and on sale for just $12.00! That makes the shadows just $3.00 each! You really can’t beat that! You can see a look I created with $aucey below.
