COLOURPOP & KATHLEEN LIGHTS | WHERE THE LIGHT IS PALETTE


I was so excited to finally receive this little treat in the mail after I ordered it the day of release. I have been an avid fan of ColourPop , and knowing the beautifully vibrant Kathleen Lights was once again collaborating with them just gave me such joy! After all, Lumiere 'til this day my favourite lipstick from the ColourPop range. 

The palette has a perfect mix of shimmery and matte shadows, and is a beautifully curated for any lover of neutrals. All the colours are blend able, pigmented and long lasting. The perfect trifecta whenever we talk eyeshadows.  Let's just say, it was definitely love at first sight. 



KathleenLights (Peralized) - Let's start off with the eyeshadow named after the Queen herself. This eyeshadow is delightful to use and the one which I reach for on a daily basis. It's a beautiful golden coppery satin, which is a hat tilt to the everyone's much loved MAC eyeshadow Amber Lights. Amber Light was one of my very first eyeshadows in my collection and this colour is even better. It's more coppery vs. orange and looks great all over the lid on those lazy make up days.  This colour is hands down my favourite in the collection.


Blaze (Metallic) - This colour is gorgeous and very unique. It reminds me of ColourPop's Amira, but  darker. This shadow is a dark bronze, with multi dimensional glitters throughout which makes for a statement on the eyes. In certain lights it looks bronze and in other lights it looks more purple. It's buttery and blend-able, which is a nice surprise for a colour which is darker.

Cornelious (Matte) - I adore this colour! Just adore it! It's a mid-tone brown/caramel colour, which is perfect for defining the cease. I have used this colour every since I've received it. FLAWLESS.


Glow (Matte) - I have to be honest and highlight that this colour is not my favourite. It's a pure off-white matte eyeshadow which I personally have never been a fan of, because I find them too harsh. However, for those of you who love highlighting under the brow bone, this colour is perfect. The formula is also flawless and easy to blend!

For $20US dollars, this palette is a must buy for any beauty lover and I've said this before but ColourPop eyeshadows can rival any high end shadow any day. They are truly a beauty lovers dream.

    1. I'm surprised they ship to Australia before the UK, that never happens. But I'm sure they'll start shipping to the UK soon.

  6. The pictures you have created for this post are just so beautiful and professional and lovely!!! What a great job! I'm also not a fan of the off white highlight, as I prefer a shimmer highlight in my inner corner, but I have found some uses for this shade, and use it to blend out my crease when it's too harsh. I am loving this set of eyeshadows too! ColourPop is life!!!
