I adore this colourpop palette and not just because I loved DreamStreet band when I was younger. This palette gives you a 100 Watts gorgeous warm glow. I am assuming this palette was created for the summer months but I think this is just absolutely perfect for Autumn. I did not experience any flakiness with any of the shades. Moony was the only shade I had some trouble with swatching. It didn’t go on as smooth as the others.

As far as wear and application. It didn’t take long to make a look that could even mix and match with the shades as they are very buildable. Be aware the darker shades are quite pigmented and less forgiving. A little goes a long way. I did not test this without a base but with a base the shades will last all day.

The palette it’s self runs at $16 USD. I also used Milani eye primer which runs about $7 USD but you could even use an E.L.F. cosmetics eye primer which runs as low as $2 USD both have all day staying power and if you don’t have money to splurge I would recommend either of these.

Using the lighter shades in this palette I achieved the following daytime look. As I mentioned this could be buildable and there are definitely dramatic and night looks that can be made with this palette. The lighting on this photo is a little off, both eyes have the same amount of color but here you can see what it looks like in direct sunlight and shadow.

Here are the arm swatches, I added the video above because I didn’t think it did the duocrome shadows justice (specifically mermaid boy and sweet dreams).  You can purchase the palette at the colourpop website here.
