ColourPop Shell Shocked Eyeshadow Palette

Shell Shocked

ColourPop Shell Shocked 9-Pan Shadow Palette (Plastic) is a new, limited edition nine-pan palette including powder and cream-to-powder eyeshadows. Two hues were supposed to be sheer, while the remaining colours were mostly semi-opaque. The mattes were a touch more powdery than expected, which was below the brand’s typical level. Three of the shimmers were more tightly packed and difficult to pick up with a brush.
