The ColourPop Ooh La La! palette filled a void in my collection for pinks that I could wear to work without being too bold. I mentioned it before, but ColourPop’s formula isn’t the most pigmented but I make it work. I find myself reaching for it to pair with my orange palette and purple single shadows (swatches with those shadows coming soon).
Price: $12 (buy here)
Mirror included: yes
Number of shades: 9 (4 mattes, 1 metallic, 3 satins, 1 shimmer)
Tone: Cool & Neutral; Vibrant
Additional info: Use a light-colored base to get the mattes to show on deep skin. They are best applied with a densely packed brush then blend out with a fluffier brush. The metallic & shimmer apply well with a flat packing brush or your finger.
Shade names and descriptions (per the brand’s website):
Tickled: soft opalescent pink with violet, pink, & blue glitter flip (shimmer)

While I find use for the colors in this palette, it’s not my favorite. Doing the swatches in the photo above I had to go over the color a few times to get it to show like that. I don’t have to do that with some of my other shadows so Ooh La La! will remain a companion palette for me.
Do you have this palette? If so, how do you use it? Leave a comment below.
