As soon as I saw this palette released on social media, I knew I needed to get my hands on it. Usually, I tend to prefer the colourpop singles a lot more than their palettes but I had a really good feeling about this colour selection. Spoiler alert, of course, it's a warm-toned palette. I'm quite surprised that I've not really heard much hype about this palette if I'm honest.

I feel like I've waited for an absolute age for this palette because it took such a long time to get here and then I couldn't use it because I wanted to photograph it first and we all know the dark nights are not flattering for photos. But anyway, I eventually got round to photographing it and I couldn't be happier.

You'll notice with this launch, Colourpop has listened to their customers and put the shade names underneath each pan too, which makes it so much easier! The palette contains 12 shades and costs $16 which is super reasonably priced. There are 7 matte shades which range from oranges to pinks and 5 shimmery shades.

Colourpop's statement: "We’ll be frank, this is our favourite palette yet. Full of warm coppers and rich, romantic mauves, it complements multiple skin tones and satisfies all your moods"

Does that statement alone not make you want to go out and purchase the palette?

Not that I was expecting there to be, but this palette doesn't even have a dud shade. Personally, because all I wear on a daily basis is warm-toned shades, I find this palette to be perfect for travelling with since you can create an orange, mauve and brown based looks! The formula of the shimmers is quite different compared to some of their other shimmers; they're more metallic and chunky finish. 

I can't wait to have a play around with some of the darker shades in this palette and see what bold looks I can create.

Is this a palette you'd be tempted to pick up?
