Welcome back to another blog post. This post is going to be all about a new addition to my makeup collection, the ColourPop Cosmetics It’s My Pleasure 9 pan pressed pigment palette. If you want to know all the tea on this palette, then keep on reading!
About The Palette
This beautiful monochromatic purple palette is absolutely stunning. I have to admit, this palette wasn’t high on my wish list. But, it came within a bundle alongside other 9 pan palettes and I must say, I am happy it was included. You obviously get 9 shades; 3 mattes and 6 shimmers/metallics. One of the shades is a matte with small micro-glitters in it, so I am counting that as a shimmer shade. It can be purchased on the ColourPop website for $12 USD (approx. $16 AUD), which means you are only paying about $1.80 AUD per pan!
Just like the other 9 pan palettes, this one comes in a rather sturdy plastic case with the name of the palette printed on the front. I wish it was cardboard but what can you do? When you open this beauty up, there is a large, high-quality mirror staring back at you. The shade names are printed underneath each shade, as well as on the back of the palette itself. All the 9 pan palettes are great to take with you when you travel as they take up no space at all.
Kittenfish is a pink/lavender shade with a matte finish.
Do Or Dough is a purple/magenta shade with flecks of blue and violet sparkle.
Pretty Cruel is a reddish plum shade with faint golden sparkles.
Bare Minimum is a metallic berry shade.
Earthshine is a pinky-lavender shade with a metallic finish.
Chick Lit is a deep purple shade with a pearly sheen finish.
Mr. Sandman is a plum/brown with a metallic finish.
Fan Fiction is a dark pink with a matte finish.Sleeper is a deep berry shade with a matte finish.
Sleeper is a deep berry shade with a matte finish.
I think you can tell by my numerous 9 pan palette posts that I really love the concept of them. What shade do you love wearing? ColourPop will have a monochromatic palette of that shade I can guarantee that. This is a very well-rounded palette when it comes to the colour story. There are lighter shades, transition shades and deeper/darkening shades. In terms of pigmentation, they get an A+ from me! The metallics are phenomenal like always, and the mattes are pretty spectacular also. Purple shades are notoriously hard to make, so for such an affordable brand to nail them, well, the expensive brands need to watch out.
What don’t I like, or what could be improved? I have said this for most of these 9 pan palettes, some of the shades look extremely similar when applied to the skin. Do or Dough and Bare Minimum are very similar shades when applied to the skin, so I would have rather seen a lighter shimmer take its place. Also, the shimmer shades seem to be very lightly pressed within the pan, which makes for a pretty messy application. The kickback in the pan isn’t great, but it also isn’t the worst I have ever seen. I apply my eyeshadow before anything else on my face, so fall out isn’t much of an issue for me.
What do you think about the ColourPop Blue Moon palette? Have you tried any of the other 9 pan monochromatic palettes? Make sure you leave me a comment and let me know 🙂
That’s all for now Beauties!
