All I See is Magic Colourpop Cosmetics Holiday 2017 Palette

Colourpop has released their holiday collection and when I perused it I fell in instant love with the All I See is Magic pressed powder palette and instantly picked it up. Today we are going to go through swatches and report on the performance of the shadows! If you want to watch me do a look and first impressions of the palette you can see that here.

The Swatches

Left to right: Go Wish, Now and Zen, 11:11, Treat Yourself, Top Notch

The top row features a good blend of colors that I would actually see using together to create a look just with these. 11:11 is a beautiful pink metallic shadow with added silver glitter that I totally see using for a really bright bold eye that is glittery yet wearable.

The swatches above don’t represent the quality of the shadow, I just did a really bad job swatching and you will see with the other two swatch pictures that these shadows actually swatch beautifully.

I love how bold this row is. I feel like this row is a good resource for choosing a focal color and then using some of the other shadows outside this row to complete the look. Everything but Tinsel Town is a metallic and they are all beautifully creamy and smooth. Tinsel Town is a great outer corner or crease shade for deepening up a look in a colorful way. Wishful Thinking, if you can see, is actually bronze that flashes a green-leaning teal. I think these are all awesome pops of color for the holidays specifically.

Like the first row, I totally see myself using this row on its own, and I could see buying just these five shadows for a small palette that could make multiple looks. Save it For later is a beautiful gold that pairs well with any of the neutral mattes here. These are really a good variety of mattes to help make the palette wearable and multi-use.

The Verdict

The colors here are totally beautiful and it’s no secret that I like the formula of Colourpop pressed shadows. I did a wear test on these and experienced no smudging or loss of color over the course of the day. The colors didn’t crease. There was a small amount of glitter transfer from my lid up into my crease. It was minimal but is something to be aware of, especially if your eyes are more hooded than mine. All in all, I really do suggest getting this before it is discontinued. There are a lot of lovely and unique metallics alongside useful neutral mattes that make it very valuable for the price of $20 (on sale for $14 as I write this!).
