A few weeks ago Colourpop had another BYOP (build your own palette) sale where you could order a custom palette at a discounted price. I have enjoyed the pressed eyeshadows that I have ordered from them in the past so I thought it would be fun to build a palette of my own. I very rarely order single shadows so I spent a lot of time thinking about what shades I would want in my palette. I think the results were a very ‘me’ palette… a mix of neutrals and colourful shades. It’s also 50/50 mattes and shimmers which is what I like to see in a palette.
Surprisingly I did not put any purple shades in the palette! I refrained (it was so hard!) and went for teal instead because I want to start experimenting with teal eyeshadows. I did originally have a few purples selected but I had to limit myself. The Huda Beauty Amethyst Obsessions Palette has me set with some great purples for now anyways. I always hesitate with purple eye shadow… they are so hit or miss.
