How to Use
Rated 4.53 out of 5 stars
I'll admit that I did not need another E/S palette but I couldn't resist the cute packaging. I love roses, I love the song and the script and I love the colors. I almost couldn't justify the purchase when I saw the colors because it reminded me so much of the Naked Cherry palette I have and never have been too happy with. When I swatched some of the colors in the store, in stead of burgundy shades I thought I would see and hoped for, a lot of them looked more reddish to me, but still it was priced right and too pretty to pass up and I'm glad that I didn't.
When I got it home I started comparing some of my favorite colors with the Naked Cherry Palette colors and the shades in Exes & Ohs blew the Naked ones away. They were so much prettier.. already I was excited. Then when I put together my first e/s look this morning I was very pleased with how it came together and that almost never happens for me. Usually there is a bit of a learning curve and it takes me a couple of attempts to figure out which shades look best together. I was also pleasantly surprised with very little fall out. That was my biggest complaint with the Naked Cherry palette (my first and only Naked palette).
I can also say that it is wearing quite well which is unusual for me and my greasy eyelids. The colors are so pretty and still look just as vibrant mid day which is new for me.
This is my first Colour Pop palette purchase and it will not be my last. I also love the convenient size. I can easily take this with me in my purse or suitcase, where I wouldn't dare bring some of my bigger more expensive palettes with me on the go.
I really love this pallet and use it a lot. However, when I bought it, I expected to get much more use out of it. Most shades like reckless and realness looked like a deeper red that was almost brown in the pallet, but when worn seem to have more cool and purple undertones. I got the desired affect in natural lighting but not in artificial lighting.
Also, the colors aren't as pigmented in this colorpop pallet as they are in my others. i assume this is because red tones are very hard to get right and normally have to be a press powder, and I had high hopes for this pallet since it said it was a pressed powder eyeshadow pallet.

Fallback is eh but pigmentation if applied right is long lasting and blends well especially with cut creases

Honestly, Colourpop makes great palettes. This one is one of my favorites. I have medium/ tan skin (i'm chicana) and i find that this palette shows up on my skin unlike some other ones i've tried from other brands. AND it blends amazingly. i'd recommend this to people of my complexion and lighter. i can't speak for dark skin beauties out there though. definitely worth the money i think.

I was so excited to get this pallet and when it came in the mail it was just completely ruined. Powder everywhere. I want a refund or a new pallet. Super disappointed.

Rookie came broken but I was able to repress it in. It hasn't had a problem since. I lent this palette to a friend and we shall see what she thinks. I've had this palette for two weeks

Love this palette so far. Perfect if you want to get nice bold red eye looks. It's easy to do a more casual look or an intense smoky eye. Personally I feel that the 2 lighter shimmery shades are lacking. They're a bit powdery and not as intense as I'd like them to be when I apply with my finger. Spraying a brush with setting spray should give them a good amount of pigment though. Overall a great palette with a great color scheme.

I bought this product for a quick and easy daily look, and it does that, but the blend ability is really disappointing. I really have to work with it, even with one color, specifically the pinks, they're patchy and dry. I do like the shimmer shades, those are a bang for the buck. I will continue to use it for quick everyday looks, but for more glam looks I won't really be reaching for this one.

The top three shades are just stunning. The bottom row second from the left shade goes on gorgeous. This is a shockingly good!

Easy to apply and the colors are great!!
I would've liked for the pallet to have a mirror because it's something I'd like to make a "travel everywhere" item.

I love everything about colourpop palettes. I'm never disappointed. Great blendability, intense pigment. Stunning colors.

The shimmer shades barely pick up and all look the same on the eyes. The palette looks way more red and vibrant in photos than in real life. Also my own issue but Colourpop's formula makes me want to itch my eyes out so maybe if you're sensitive be careful.

This has been my go to palette aside from the JH Morphe Palette. It's colors are smooth and pigmented, and when combined together they blend really well. 5 stars

I'm new to eyeshadow (late, I know) but this palette is amazing! HOLY Pigment!!!Its also easy to blend. So, this and 'California love' are my first colourpop palettes, I was a little taken back by the size, it's small! But overall WORTH the money, "beginner friendly" and obviously the packaging is beautiful.

Very cute colors!!! Lasted on my eyes all day

I got this because I wanted something different. Its ones of my least used palettes though and I feel uninspired by it. Lots of the lighter colors have an orange tone that just dont look good with the purples and pinks. Some colors just seem to fade away into each other.

It's alright. Hard to blend to be honest and for that being I feel it should be more pigmented then it is. I bought this in a bit of an emergency situation and it worked for the moment but going back to use it hasn't happened.

I didn't need this palette, most of the colors I own either in other palettes or in singles, but the packaging, the cohesiveness and everything about it just kept calling to me. It's been out for months and I held off getting it for awhile until I just said whatever I'm getting it and I'm not disappointed. Colors are soft and apply beautifully. Some need more work than others but they still PERFORM!! Some of the shimmer shades are that chunky fine glitter type of shimmer shadow that I ADORE because you can use them dry for everyday and get a pretty sparkle or you can wet them for a glam look and they give the best effect. I love how pinky red this is since I'm into those colors now. All in all it's a good palette

I just received mine in the mail, and I will be returning it as soon as possible. I was expecting nice burgundy's and blushy colors. It just looks like a neutral brown, warm palette in person. I wanted to love it.
