Review & Swatches of the ColourPop 9-Pan Shadow Palettes (Part 2)


Honestly, this is something I fell off the train of following with each of the new releases ColourPop did with the 9-pan palettes as I have gotten almost all of them. Save for three of more recent ones though I will probably end up getting them at some point. Instead of going back to the original post I did on this, I figured I would just start a part 2. So, if you want to see the first set in ColourPop’s 9-pan collection check out that post.

Before we get into the palettes, each one is priced around $12. The pressed powders and glitter have a weight of 0.03 oz. Most of them include a mirror if they are in the plastic packaging, while the cardboard packaging does not for the most part.

Baby Got Peach

This palette I was on the fence of getting for a while, mainly as a bunch of these shades including the pressed glitter I had previously gotten as individual shadows so there weren’t a lot of “unique” ones in the palette. But then my sister ended up getting it for me anyways. So, now I have duplicates in my individual BYOP palettes and in this one.

  • darlin’: pale peachy orange
  • hungry ghost: opal with a gold duochrome shift
  • perky: light pinky peach
  • get even: vibrant peachy pink with a bright gold flip
  • centerfold: vibrant coral
  • glaze it: midtone metallic peach with a golden sheen
  • okurr: peachy terracotta
  • ready or yacht: icy tangerine
  • half baked: rust

Smoke Show

The Smoke Show palette I would have to say is one of the more unique palettes in their 9-pan collection since it’s completely greyscaled without any pressed glitters (hallelujah). If you wanted a palette that can get you that perfect smokey eye, this one is far you. It also has grey shadows, which I’ve recently realized I don’t have a lot of in my collection. Like at all other than a few metallic silvers here and there.

  • young love: white
  • smokin!: true charcoal grey withsilver pinpoints
  • stone face: light grey
  • slated: charcoal grey
  • star struck: true silver
  • ignite: blue grey with gold pearl
  • let’s do it: deep black
  • full metal: deep gun metal
  • night dream: black with pink, gold and silver sparkles

Strawberry Shake

Honestly, I can’t remember if I included this palette in my part one of the ColourPop 9-pan palettes or if this one came out immediately after I had done that. And there are just so many that I may have over looked it when I went back to look at that post. So, forgive me if I’ve already done this palette.

While ColourPop already had a “pink” monochrome palette, I think this one fits better with that scheme since it’s got a mixture of light tones and more deeper tones. And while they also have a red monochrome palette, this one falls somewhere in between those two so it doesn’t feel like you have the same palette multiple times.

  • my milkshake: vibrant berry pink
  • whipped: rosey pink with silver and pink sheen
  • woke: baby pink
  • paper straw: soft coral pink
  • take a sip: vivid hot pink with pink and gold sparkle
  • delish: icy pink
  • berry fine: bright peach with golden flip
  • daiquiri: true red
  • shake it up: mauvey berry

Going Coconuts

Going Coconuts is a the more lighter neutral palette, which is more on the cool toned side of the spectrum.

  • shredded: creamy vanilla with silver pinpoints
  • palm reader: white with gold flip
  • coolada: cool taupe brown
  • lovely bunch: mid tone yellow brown
  • coco crush: icy pale champagne
  • shell ya: neutral ginger brown
  • get crackin’: cool brown with silver flecks
  • da coco: icy bronze with violet pinpoints
  • nutty: deep umber

Lilac You A Lot

Though initially I thought this palette looked almost identical to the previous monochrome purple palette in ColourPop’s collection (It’s My Pleasure), I think I’m a bit more split on it. This palette is more of that typical purple scheme compared to the other one with lighter tones.

  • cloud: icy lavender with a golden flip
  • imagine that: pastel lavender
  • ghostin’: vibrant pinky lilac
  • wake me: orchid with duochrome hot pink flip
  • fluff: icy metallic violet with gold and silver accent
  • trainwreck: soft lavender with a pink duochrome flip
  • zoned out: dusty pinky mauve
  • iffy: cool toned purple
  • filtered: red plum

Candy Button (Bitti x ColourPop)

Even though this palette is called the Candy Button, it is not really displayed anywhere on the palette. It was a collaboration palette with Bitti that’s you’re “pretty pink, corals, and opalescent palette” with two of the nine shades being pressed glitters.

  • gummy a break: pale bubblegum pink with a golden sheen
  • sweet capacity: peachy pink
  • bubblicious: rosey pink
  • pop!: icy coral
  • sweet life: rose pink with opal lavender glitter
  • gum drop: lavender with multicolored glitter
  • jelly baby: mauve rose
  • poppin’: dusty orchid
  • hubba bubba: red brown mahogany

Bird of Paradise

This was one of three bird palettes released exclusively for a time to Ulta. I did end up getting all three of them, though I would not say I have used these a lot since I bought them. The Bird of Paradise palette is another take on the orange theme.

  • so fly: bright, tangerine orange with strong, warm undertones and a metallic finish
  • beak-a-boo: soft, very light yellowed-peach with warm undertones and a bright, metallic sheen
  • cage free: light-medium orange with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish
  • perch: medium-dark coral-orange with warm undertones and a matte finish
  • wing it: rich, deeper gold with strong, warm orange undertones and a metallic finish
  • preen queen: medium, orange-brown with warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle over a matte finish
  • golden egg: medium-dark copper with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish
  • pecking order: bright, medium-dark orange base with strong, warm golden shimmer throughout
  • hatched: medium-dark orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish

Night Owl

This palette is supposed to be the more deeper shades of the “bird” holiday palettes that were released at Ulta. However, it reads very similar to so many other palettes that I have in my collection that I almost never reach for this one especially since it does not have a mirror. So, while it’s a nice palette you can’t really travel with it.

  • lil birdie: light-medium yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish
  • bird brain: light-medium copper with warm undertones and a frosted finish
  • rule the roost: deep, mustard yellow with warm undertones and a matte finish
  • bel air: muted, light-medium brown with warmer undertones and a matte finish
  • two birds: bright, medium-dark orange-gold with strong, warm undertones and a metallic finish
  • sea stars: medium, caramel brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish
  • rockin’ robin: muted, medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish
  • milli: rich bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen
  • tweet tweet: deep, olive brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen

Love Bird

My biggest problem with this palette is the fact that the entire middle row of shadows are pressed glitters, which are not eye safe. Not to mention, ColourPop’s formula without an glitter glue just get everywhere. And I mean everywhere, I have a massive chunks of glitter left over from this palette and the other ones in this post from just doing swatches.

  • peacocky: soft, light-medium peach with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling sheen
  • flower boy: brighter, medium pink-coral with a matte finish and moderate, warmer undertones
  • sing-a-song: medium pink with strong, warm undertones and cooler, iridescent pink and gold sparkle
  • island hopping: opal with a blue and copper shift and rainbow holographic glitter
  • cheep cheep: light, white gold small-sized glitter particles that shifted from bright, white gold to light-medium gold with opalescent, smaller glitter particles throughout
  • indio: mix of darker, pink glitter and holographic glitter suspended in a translucent base
  • side chick: brighter, medium-dark pink with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish
  • on a lark: brighter, medium fuchsia pink with subtle, cool undertones and flecks of micro-sparkle over a matte finish
  • no egrets: bright, medium-dark burgundy with cool undertones and a matte finish

Not included in this post are the Anna and Elsa palette, since I already basically did a post on those. But I do still have them in my collection.
