In today’s post I’m going to share my ColourPop single shadow collection with you. Hopefully it inspires you to pick some shades if you’ve been unsure. I’ve included swatches too, which as always have not been edited so you can see the true colour.
Let’s get into My ColourPop Single Shadow Collection and Swatches.
Matte | Feathered
A classic rich chocolate brown. It’s really pigmented, and does have a little amount of fallout, but it is easily swept away.
Metallic | Night Show
This shade is described as a yellow bronze, but it just seems a deep yellow gold… is that the same thing? The colour payoff is great, and it’s light and velvety.
Metallic | Thank U, Next
Did I buy this for the Ariana Grande reference? Maybe. This one is a reddish copper. I’ve not experimented with this one too much, but I can imagine there is a lot of fallout.
Matte | Martian
This is not completely matte, as it has tiny gold flecks. Martian is a dark copper orange colour. I wasn’t quite prepared for how Orange this was going to be, so I’ll have to see how I get on with it.
Metallic | Save it For Later
This shade was originally in the ‘All I See is Magic’ palette, which was released for Christmas 2017. Save it For Later is a beautiful amber.
Metallic | Crackle
Crackle is an orange copper with plenty of glitter.
Mate | Wake Up Call
Got to get that transition shade in somewhere. This one is a light peach with warm undertones.
Metallic | Boxer
Now this is my kind of shade. Boxer is a dark bronze brown, and I love it. It has a frosted sheen.
Top to Bottom: Feathered, Night Show, Thank U Next, Martian, Save it for Later, Crackle, Wake up Call and Boxer.
Onto the second palette and true to form its rather basic.
This is what I got in Build Your Own Palette.
Metallic DuoChrome | The Big 3
This is a really pretty bright white with a green, gold and pink flip. The Big 3 is pigmented and a great highlight shade.
Metallic | Ringer
This shade is from an older palette called ‘Heavy Hitter’. Ringer is a metallic champagne and extremely pigmented.
Matte | Cloud Nine
This is a warm matte brown, that does have subtle red undertones. The colour payoff is fab and the fallout is minimal.
Frost | Party Favours
Party Favours is a warm orange with a gold undertone. It’s a bit more on the peachy side than bright orange. The pigment is fab and it blends well too.
Matte | Sea Stars
This shade was a part of a limited edition palette called ‘Element of Surprise’. Sea Stars is a warm brown with orange undertones.
Metallic | Snake Eyes
I very nearly didn’t get this shade, but it has quickly become my favourite. Snake Eyes is a medium taupe with some rosy undertones. It’s a perfect lid colour. I do find that there is a lot of fallout with this, but that’s probably more down to me for piling it on. Since writing this, I have also hit pan on this shade.
Metallic | 20 Something
20 Something was a part of a limited edition palette that was only available in Ulta called ‘Sweet Nothings’. I originally thought this was a pure gold, but it’s more of a peachy gold with some warm orange undertones.
Matte | Conundrum
This is a very basic matte warm brown, that blends easily.
Metallic | Mr Sandman
Mr Sandman is also available in the: ‘It’s My Pleasure’ purple palette. This one is similar to Glass bull, but instead of having a pinky plum base, it’s more brown with plum. It’s also contains cool pink glitter.
Matte | Bel Air
I did not realise this shade is also available in the ‘I Think I Love You’ palette, which I happen to own and love. This shade is described as a cool taupe, but it’s more warm toned than cool. On me it comes across a little orange toned.
Matte | Backstage
I know, groundbreaking right? We all love a blue in a neutral palette. Backstage is a vibrant cobalt, without being too bright.
Metallic | Now and Zen
This shade was available in an older palette called: ‘All I See is Magic’. Now and Zen is a white gold, but is has a yellow sheen.
Frost | Let Me Explain
I love this, as it is a classic ivory, with amazing pigment.
Duo Chrome Metallic | Glass Bull
This seems like an interesting shade, that’s a bit different for me. Glass Bull is a pinky plum, with blue shimmer.
Metallic | Board Shorts
Not only do I love this shade, but I’m loving the PLL reference. Board Shorts is a metallic bronze, that isn’t as creamy as some of the other shades. This shade was extremely hard to swatch and needed a good few layers to get a decent colour.
Matte | Take The Lead
I didn’t realise this shade would be this grey, and that is the downside of buying online.
Left to Right: Conundrum, 20 Something, Snake Eyes, Sea Stars, Party Favours, Cloud Nine, Ringer and The Big 3.
Left to Right: Take the Lead, Board Shorts, Glass Bull, Let me Explain, Now and Zen, Backstage, Bel Air, Mr Sandman.
Here Kitty Kitty
This highlighter is gorgeous, but a little too dark for me in the winter. t’s a beautiful light champagne with a luminous sheen.
I opted for this bronzer, as it seemed like the lightest option. It is a lot more pigmented than I first thought it was going to be, but it blends out really easily. It’s a light brown with warm undertones.

That was my ColourPop Single Shadow Collection and Swatches! It was certainly a long one, and very photo heavy.
