Review & Swatches of the ColourPop 9-Pan Shadow Palettes (Part 1)


One brand I love mainly has they have excellent products on a drugstore budget is ColourPop, granted they release a lot of products. While I do not have everything they have ever released nor will ever have everything, the mass majority of my makeup is from ColourPop. And I haven’t done a few of their eyeshadow palettes in quite some time. Practically on their 9-pan palettes that are almost all monochromatic. So I thought I would share my thoughts and a brief overview of each of those palettes since I have most of them.

Each of these palettes includes nine shadows and a mirror that takes up the entire top lid. They cost $12 and each pan contains 1 g or 0.04 oz of product. The formula of the pressed powder metallic & matte shades are incredible like almost all of the ColourPop palettes that they have released so far that I’ve tried. Plus the packaging is sturdy yet sleek so they are great to take with you where ever you need to travel to. Even the lightest shades in the palette are pigmented and the blend like an absolute dream. Also if you did want to take out any of the shadows for any reason, they are magnetic so they pop in and out easily. This has helped saved some of the shadows in the past when I dropped the palettes (as I’m a klutz so I drop palettes and makeup often).

I have used all of these palettes, but I didn’t take pictures of the looks I created using them. Or I didn’t save them as I had no intention of writing a review of them at the time. If I have photos where I know I used only that palette, I’ll include the photos of those looks.

Sol Palette

This is the coral toned palette that was released last summer that’s a great palette for any warm tone lover as it’s full of orange, pink, and copper shades. The shades are as followed:

Mar Palette

At the same time the Sol palette was released, they also introduced the Mar palette. This palette is your teal and bronze palette that reminds me a lot of the Kylie Jenner Blue Honey palette. The shades are as followed:

Ooh La La! Palette

This one was released on the anniversary of Means Girls coming out which just so happened to be on a Wednesday. While it is not a Mean Girls palette, it is completely pink like the Burn Book. Sometimes these shadows do stain the lids. The shades are as followed:

It’s My Pleasure Palette

Shortly after the release of the Ooh La La! palette, ColourPop released it’s sister palette called It’s My Pleasure. That’s your rich jewel tones with a purple hue. The shades are as followed:

Brown Sugar Palette

This is a collaboration palette with Karrueche and is all your neutral shades for any go-to look. The shades in this palette are:

Just My Luck Palette

For Saint Patrick’s day, ColourPop released the Just My Luck palette which is your monochromatic green palette. The shades in this palette are:

Proceed With Caution Palette

This is a collaboration palette with Shayla that’s similar to the Brown Sugar palette in that it leans on the more neutral side but includes a black, vibrant orange and yellow shade to make it slightly more unique. The shades included in this palette are:

Main Squeeze Palette

While the Mar palette is your more coral to orange shades, the Main Squeeze palette is your red monochromatic palette. Which makes my eyes look insanely green rather than hazel. Sometimes these shadows do stain the lids. The shades in this palette are:

Blue Moon Palette

I was actually surprised to find I didn’t have any true blue palettes in my collection or any shades similar to these ones from the Blue Moon palette. Plus I love astrology, so there was no way I was passing up on this palette. The shades included in this palette are:

Uh-Huh Honey Palette

Everyone wanted ColourPop to release a yellow monotone palette when they started doing the color series in the 9-pan palettes. So I was extremely excited when this palette was released and got it right away. I am a little shocked there is a pressed glitter shade called Palooza that’s not actually eye safe due to the size of the glitter. A lot of these shades do read very similar to one another so there isn’t a lot of variety of looks that can be made. But I still really enjoy this palette from ColourPop. The shades included in this palette are:

Orange You Glad?

The all orange monotone palette from ColourPop with another pressed glitter shade in the center that’s not safe for the eye area. I was initially against getting this palette as there is already the Sol palette. But decided to get it as the shades are more Sunny-D than just warm toned neutrals as the Sol palette is. The shades included in this palette are:
