How to Find the Right Monochromatic ColourPop Palette for You
In early 2019, ColourPop took the beauty community by storm with the release of its monochromatic 9-Pan palettes. Originally an affordable dupe of the Huda Beauty’s popular Obsessions Palettes, the ColourPop Monochromatic range came into its own as the range expanded.
However, with 12 palettes in ColourPop’s Monochromatic Palette range, finding the right palette seems daunting. Thankfully, the task is not impossible. To find the right monochromatic ColourPop palette for you, keep these questions in mind:
1 | Assess the Shade Range
What do I mean by this? Although some of the Monochromatic Palettes contain a wide variety of tones within the same color family, some of the palettes lack depth. As a result, those palettes typically create very similar looks regardless of what shadows are used.
When trying to find the right monochromatic ColourPop palette for you, it is essential to understand what palettes contain pressed glitters.
Specifically, tf you hate pressed glitters in eyeshadow palettes, avoid the Uh-Huh Honey, Orange You Glad, and Baby Got Peach Palettes. Also, the pressed glitters included in ColourPop Palettes are not considered eye-safe.
5 | Do Not Buy a Palette to “Get Into” Wearing That Color
Chances are high that you will not use a monochromatic palette in a color range that you don’t regularly wear on your eyes. For example, if you do not wear blue eyeshadow, it does not make sense to purchase the Blue Moon Palette. It is likely that the palette would sit unused in your collection.
Furthermore, this is the reason that I do not own the Just My Luck Palette. I hate the cool-toned, green color story. Based on my current preferences, I am unlikely to reach for that palette.
Attempting to collect all of the Monochromatic Palettes from ColourPop should not be your main reason for purchasing a release. In other words, if you dislike a palette or know if you won’t use it, please do not buy it.
There are very few affordable brands that make makeup that is the same quality as ColourPop. Moreover, other affordable brands such as Makeup Revolution fail to compete with ColourPop from a quality or price standpoint. For example, ColourPop palettes are often cheaper per unit of product and the quality is consistently good. In comparison, Makeup Revolution copies other brands’ designs but the quality is inconsistent.
Although all of ColourPop’s palettes are addictive and affordable, the monochromatic ColourPop palettes are particularly alluring to beauty lovers. The curated color stories and inexpensive prices make it easy to purchase these palettes on an impulse.
However, it is important to find the right monochromatic ColourPop palette for you. Otherwise, you may be tempted to purchase all the $12 palettes from ColourPop.
