Product 411 -- ColourPop Fame and Fortune Shadow Palettes

It's pretty hard to keep up with all of the new products that ColourPop puts out.

Don't get me wrong... I certainly try to, but they put out new items at a pretty prolific rate, so it's impossible to stay on top of all of them.

I have done a pretty good job of keeping with their shadow palettes (I think there's only one in the line that I haven't snagged yet), though, so I picked up the Fame and Fortune Shadow Palettes that ColourPop put out for their birthday.

One of them features cool-toned shadows! How could I possibly resist?

Both of the palettes come in the usual sturdy cardboard packaging that nearly all of ColourPop's palettes do. There's no mirror inside, but you do get 16 shadows in each palette.

Right off the bat, I'll say that the shadows in these palettes are up to ColourPop's usual standards -- they're nicely pigmented, buttery, smooth, and very easy to work with. So if one (or both) of the color schemes catches your eye, I wouldn't hesitate to pick it up.

Personally speaking, the Fame Shadow Palette is my favorite -- I've been using it pretty much constantly since I picked it up because it's perfect for natural, everyday palette.

I have blue eyes, so I do love warm-toned shadows for bringing them out, but I'm kind of sick of every palette that comes out these days having a warm color scheme. It's so nice to see some cool tones for a change -- cool tones have been my jam since way back in the day when I first got into makeup, and it's just nice to see a brand realizing that everyone doesn't always want to wear red/orange/gold/brown shadows every day.

Speaking of which, the Fortune Shadow Palette is full of some pretty gorgeous warm tones. They're beautiful for sure, but I feel like it looks like of other palettes from ColourPop so it may not be an essential for everyone depending on what you already have in your collection.

The palettes retail for $22 each, which is a little pricey as far as ColourPop palettes go, but you are getting 16 shadows. They're available on the ColourPop website.

Have you tried the ColourPop Fame and Fortunate Shadow Palettes? Which one is your favorite?
