ColourPop: Where The Light Is

I recently picked up a few goodies from ColourPop (there will be a haul video up VERY SOON!) and I thought I would share one of my favourite items with you, the Kathleen Lights quad, Where The Light Is.
The Product - Where The Light Is ($20.00 USD)
When I originally decided I wanted this, I thought it was a palette but it's actually four separate shadows. This quad is a collaboration between ColourPop and the lovely Kathleen Lights (you can watch her video on it here). I think the shades are all beautiful and work really well together. The shades in the quad are Glow (a matte vanilla), Cornelious (a mid-toned matte brown), Kathleenlights (a bronze-gold metallic shade) and Blaze (a warm bronze with glitter). 
These eyeshadows are a little unusual in that they are neither a powder not a cream, but almost a mousse. They feel super creamy and the colour payoff, especially on the metallic shades is stunning. They really have to be seen to be believed! My only slight disappointment was the lightest shade, Glow, which comes off a little chalky and less pigmented than the rest but it's by no means awful. I also love the patterns on these shadows, they really are beautiful. The price point is also pretty great, with each shadow coming in at only $5 USD. The downside to that is the shipping rate which, if you live in Australia, is pretty extortionate. But hey, at least they ship here right?
All up, I think this is a really beautiful and affordable palette and I can see myself getting a lot of use out of it.

To order colour pop or not to order colour pop? That is the question!! I have been wanting to make an order for a while now, but I think it will have to wait until after I return from my Japan trip!! I have my eyes on this quad, I hope its still available in october!! xx

Yayyy you got it! I've been obsessed with these, the texture sure is awesome. I agree about Glow though. In general I find the matte finishes to be less pigmented than the shimmery ones - still lovely though!

So so so pretty! I want to order but I'm having so much of a cringe at the same time because of all the shipping problems I keep hearing about x

I have this eyeshadow set and I love it! I agree that glow was probably the most underwhelming! Lovely swatches & post!

Agreed on both counts!

Dani - KaBOOM! Cosmetics said...

Order! But I suppose Japan will also have huge amounts of amazing makeup to take into consideration!

Dani - KaBOOM! Cosmetics said...

Definitely don't regret ordering it, it's such a pretty quad :)

Dani - KaBOOM! Cosmetics said...

Yes, I did! And I'm so happy! I've been using Glow daily and even thought it's not as pigmented as the others, it's still pretty darn awesome!

Dani - KaBOOM! Cosmetics said...

They are indeed :)

Dani - KaBOOM! Cosmetics said...

I was pretty nervous too but our entire order came through and not a single thing was broken so it was quite a relief!

Dani - KaBOOM! Cosmetics said...

I'm pretty tempted to make another order but the extortionate shipping costs really put me off

Dani - KaBOOM! Cosmetics said...

Thank you lovely! I'm so glad I went with this quad
