I know what you’re thinking, “Another ColourPop review?!” Yes, and I have another one scheduled this week too. I can’t help myself, I’ve become a little obsessed. I’m already counting down the days until Black Friday in the hope of a free international shipping event like last year and I’m saving all my pennies up for their upcoming My Little Pony collaboration. You can probably tell from my Instagram feed that I’ve fallen in love with the ‘Yes, Please!’ Pressed Eyeshadow Palette (full review here), the most Autumnal eyeshadow palette ever invented so I was literally counting down the minutes until ColourPop’s latest palette, ‘I Think I Love You’ was released. This is the only CP palette that hasn’t sold out yet. Is this because they were extra prepared for the launch or is it because customers aren’t as excited by the selection of shades? I’m not sure.
The packaging is the same as ‘Yes, Please!’ and my Juvia’s Place palette, a simple slim cardboard palette which gets covered in fallout, but unlike my Nubian palette, it doesn’t bother me, as at only $16 I understand that sacrifices had to be made, plus, who doesn’t love rose gold? The foiled finish also doesn’t stain as much as the white matte cardboard either. I may have a thousand neutral palettes in my collection, but, funnily enough, there’s always room for one more. ‘I Think I Love You’ contains four mattes and eight shimmers.
From left to right –
Bitter Better: metallic soft gold, Bel Air: matte cool taupe, Fancy Face: metallic bright red copper and Girls Bite: metallic golden bronze.
Howdy: metallic red bronze, Rowdy: matte warm ivory, My Treat: metallic champagne ivory and Level Up: metallic bright penny copper.
Screw It: metallic soft rose gold, Let’s Do It: matte true black, Rule Breaker: metallic bright yellow gold and My Type: matte deep saddle brown.
I have to admit, the shades aren’t as exciting and as vivid ‘Yes, Please!’, but they are beautiful nonetheless. It features a lot of shimmers which may be off-putting to some but personally, it doesn’t bother me as I have a ridiculous amount of matte transition shades in my collection to make up for this. Plus, ColourPop is known for nailing metallic shades so I say the more the merrier. As always, these swatches are just one swipe and I don’t press very hard either. The Black (Let’s Do This) and Dark Brown (My Type) are both a little patchy but this is nothing a decent amount of blending can’t fix. As you can tell, these shades are highly pigmented. They are also long-wearing and ‘I Think I Love You’ actually doesn’t have as much fallout as ‘Yes, Please!’. It’s a beautiful selection of easy to wear shades that I reach for often. Considering this palette is only $16, it really does put the quality of, our more expensive, high street brands available in the UK to shame.
