COLOURPOP All I See Is Magic Shadow Palette, $20 , Available at ColourPop.com
The Holiday Season is just getting over and here I am thinking about where the hell did the whole of 2017 went. It has been a great year, and even better makeup wise. I did get to try a whole lot of international brands all through the year, and just when I was thinking it was going to end, some huge ColourPop hauls happened. Well, it all actually began with their restocking of the Yes Please Palette and then they kept churning out new palettes and holiday collections one after the other and I just gave in. A massive haul happened (well 4 hauls actually! ) and prepare to get bombarded with a lot of ColourPop reviews in the days to come.
Now, I did get about 6 palettes from ColourPop and I chose to review the All I See Is Magic palette first and no, there is no particular reason for that except size wise, it was the odd one out.
The Colourpop All I See Is Magic Palette houses a total of 15 eyeshadows. It comes is a thin cardboard box packaging that is lightweight and easy to carry around. The descriptions of the eyeshadows are as follows:

The Colourpop All I See Is Magic Palette has a total of 15 gorgeous eyeshadows in varied finishes like Matte, Metallic and Satin. The shades range from Oranges/Corals to Golds, Neutrals and Browns, to vivid Reds, Purples and Greens. All the eyeshadows felt ultra soft and velvety, almost creamy to touch and it was quite hard to believe that these are actually powder eyeshadows. This was my first tryst with Colourpop Eyeshadows and this palette literally bowled me over. While swatching the shades it just felt like I was running my finger over silk and that the heat from my fingertips kind of melted up the buttery shadows. I used this eyeshadow palette to create two makeup looks and the one thing that particularly stood out for me what the blendability of these eyehadows. Its crazy, I mean I have used many eyeshadow palettes over the last few years but the way these blended up really seemed like I was using some really high end makeup. The pigmentation is incredible and they do layer up really well, but blendability is over the roof. I have almost used all the shades once and the only shade that had a bit of fallout was the last shade Never Never. Except that one, no other shade had fallout. I cant imagine an eyeshadow palette at that price delivering such high quality results. Also brownie points because I can see that its a very versatile palette and apart from the 2 looks that I have created with this, I know I can create so many more. The possibilities with this one are endless!!
I am so impressed by the Colourpop All I See Is Magic Palette and totally looking forward to trying out the other palettes that I have got. I am totally going to give this palette a 5 start rating because it has outdone the parameters in every single category that an eyeshadow palette can be evaluated upon.
A big thumbs up to All I See is magic and if you havent got this palette yet, time to place your orders!
