Colourpop Zodiac Palette Review!

Here's my review on the Colourpop Zodiac collection by Kathleen Lights.  You can purchase it here for $18!

I have to admit, I was absolutely obsesssssed with the theme of this palette. Zodiac signs are my jam, so I knew I'd get this without even looking at the shades inside! I was really interested to see how Kathleen organised these according to Zodiac signs!

I noticed, she categorised the Zodiac signs into their elements:
Fire - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Earth - Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Air - Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Water - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

& how amazing, they perfectly are in a column in the palette!

Here are the swatches of the palette! First off, I don't have a palette like this in my collection already! I have a few repeatable shades, like the browns, oranges and purples, but no palette with all these shades all together!

Kathleen did a great job with the shades, when categorised to their elements. The fire signs are all really orange and warm and firey, whilst the earth signs are really muddy and earthy, and of course the water signs has that one amazing blue 'The Pisces'. 

My 3 fave colours are, The Libra, The Cancer & The Gemini! (Unfortunately my own sign The Virgo, didn't make the cut because it's boring af - a bit like me!)

The Gemini is a really unique gold - although it's a typical 'gold' shade it's not a warm toned gold, it's like a cool toned gold with a green/olive finish! Alongside that, it's got a really buttery, smooth finish - a lot smoother than the other shimmer shades!

Let's talk about that black shade - The Capricorn! When I first saw it, I was like oh great, another Black with glittter, I've seen that soooo many times before! But no, it actually has these really amazing different coloured glitters in it, and I can admit I do not have this shade in my collection. I'm actually real excited to drown my eyes in that shade completely!

The pisces - that really bright obnoxious blue that I will probably never use - as blue just is not my colour. Urgh, what a shame!! I love love love the finish and the feel of that shade, it's again not like the other shades as it's a lot thicker and chunkier - I think you can tell just by the swatches above, it's beautiful, I just wish Colourpop do more colours in that finish real soon!

Here's me being blinded by the sun, but also showing off a look I made with this palette, specifically with The Scorpio shade!

I think you could make some really nice and different looks with this palette! They may all run in a particular direction, i.e. very orange, very blue or very brown, but I'm so impressed with the theme of this palette, and highly recommend it!
