The Karrueche x ColourPop collaboration has been hugely popular, and I’m not surprised. By far, the most “lusted after” product is the ColourPop Fem Rosa She Pressed Powder Palette.
I am a huge fan of the Pressed Powder shadows from ColourPop, but had never tried one of their preset palettes before. I’ve always just bought the singles and made my own palette. So buying one of the preset ones always seemed like a bit of a gamble to me.
There is absolutely no denying that the ColourPop Fem Rosa She Pressed Powder Palette is beautiful. The packaging itself is gorgeous, and the warm tones of pink, peach and plum would definitely appeal to a lot of people.
I think the colours are stunning, but have found a couple of them look a little too similar when swatched. I feel like they could’ve made this so much better by including a few more unique shades in the palette. In saying that, it is a lovely palette and I will get a lot of use out of it.
The first 4 shades in the palette are Ladylike, which is a metallic soft champagne; Babe, a satin light peachy pink; Dainty, a metallic pinky taupe and Chick, which is a metallic subtle gold.
Every one of these swatches beautifully, and the metallics especially are very smooth and buttery. They blend effortlessly and I would honestly use every one of them.
The next 4 shades in the palette are Mademoiselle, a metallic rose gold; Gal, a metallic red with copper duochrome; Empress, which is a metallic mid tone pink plum and Filly, which is a metallic rusty orange.
This is the most disappointing line if I’m honest. Mademoiselle looks way too similar to Dainty when applied. They really could’ve swapped this out with a more unique shade. Gal is the most disappointing of the lot. It states that it’s a metallic but the formulation is nothing like the other metallics in the palette. It’s a glittery mess with no real colour payoff, but a lot of fall out. Empress and Filly make up for it though, and are just beautiful.
Finally we have the mattes: Dear, which is a warm rose; Missy, a deep burgundy; Damsel, which is a smokey violet and Duchess is a dusty coral.
Dear and Duchess are the stand outs in this line. They are so pigmented and smooth and buttery, I love them. Missy and Damsel aren’t as buttery, and despite swatching kinda badly – they do actually apply to the eyelids really nicely.
Overall, I have to say that although I do love the palette, I’m not as impressed as I thought I would be. I also don’t think there’s that many different looks you can get from this palette alone. But if you do love a good warm toned palette, I think you’ll love this.
