Hi guys, gals, and non-binary pals!
The day before Black Friday, like a fool, I placed an order with Colourpop and picked up a few of their palettes and lip products. If I’d just waited one more day I could have gotten discount but I wasn’t thinking and here we are. One of the palettes that I was after was the My Little Pony palette, a palette filled with colour, shimmer and nostalgia. I hope that you enjoy this review!
The main thing that drew me to this palette was the collaboration with My Little Pony. I am not a fan of the Friendship Is Magic show but I did grow up with the original cartoon and toys. I love that they incorporated art from the original series and not the new series, despite the release of this product following the release of the new movie.
The outer packaging is completely different to the packaging on the palette itself, which I kind of hate. I like both designs but I wish that they were the same so I didn’t feel guilty throwing away the outer packaging.
The actual palette packaging is a lot less busy. I don’t know which I prefer because I love having all of the original designs of the ponies featured on the palette but it does feel more childish than nostalgic here. All of the ponies have a gloss finish, against the matte background.
When I initially swatched the shadows, I was a bit concerned about the quality of the shadows. I know that swatches aren’t a good indicator of how they’ll look on the eye but I do apply foiled or shimmer shadows with my finger instead of a brush so these swatches are helpful for that.
When I did apply the shadows to my eyes, I found the shadows to be really nicely pigmented and very easy to blend. I was really happy with the performance of the shadows and even though I made some application mistakes (glitter glue can sometimes be more of a curse than a blessing), the palette worked as expected.
For this first look, I used:
Bluebell, Butterscotch, Applejack, Flutterbye, Skydancer, Princess Sparkle, and Minty.
For this look, I used:
Bluebell, Butterscotch, Applejack, Flutterbye, Twilight, Princess Sparkle, and Firefly.
Overall, I really love the palette. For the price, $16USD ($21AUD~) I think it’s a great little palette and I think it’s a whole lot of fun. If you love My Little Pony and you love using coloured shadows, I definitely think you should consider picking this one up! Colourpop do free international shipping over $50 USD which will be easy to get to with so many fun products to choose from!
I also picked up the Yes, Please and Femme Rosa palette so if you’re interested in seeing one of those reviews first, let me know!
