In My Stash: ColourPop Brown Sugar Eyeshadow Palette


Colourpop’s Brown Sugar palette is one of the first neutral palettes I ever purchased from the brand. It was Karreuche’s 2nd time collaborating with the brand, creating a not-so-basic neutral color scheme that can work for multiple skin tones. The collection included 3 glosses, 4 lipsticks, 2 gel liners, and 1 eyeshadow palette. It was also the only time I purchased the entire collection from any brand. I loved most of the products in the collection and used them until either the product expired (lipsticks/gel liners) or I used it up (glosses).

Price: $12 (now discontinued; alternates here and here)

Mirror included: yes

Number of shades: 9 (6 mattes, 2 metallics, 1 duochrome)

Tone: Warm & Cool

Additional info: The mattes are best applied with a fluffy blending brush. The metallics & duochromes apply well with a flat packing brush or your finger.

Eyeshadow beginners will enjoy ColourPop’s eyeshadow formula because it has just the right amount of pigmentation, which is great if you’re still learning how to blend. Brown Sugar is one of my favorite neutral palettes and I find myself still reaching for it, mainly for the metallics (mattes are becoming patchy because of how old it is). Overall I think CP offers a lot of great products at affordable prices and is a good brand to start with in your makeup journey.
