This photo is from my Instagram when the palette was new which is why the quality isn’t as good.

One thing I have noticed with my blog is that I barely post reviews anymore. Which is strange considering that’s what I started this blog doing. I’ve decided to bring it back today by reviewing the ColourPop Going Coconuts eyeshadow palette. I’ve been on a spending ban for a while now, so instead of showing you new products, I’m going to throw it back and review some of my favourites.
This is my ColourPop Going Coconuts Eyeshadow Palette Review.
Going Coconuts is one of ColourPop’s nine pan palettes and it’s full of wearable neutral tones. It leans slightly more cool than warm, and as I have recently discovered; cool toned neutrals are my thing. They suit me better than warm tones, so of course I had to pick this palette up.
Yeah… I don’t like it. It’s in beige plastic packaging and the cursive writing is already starting to chip away. I also find it extremely hard to open, when I first bought this palette I had acrylics on and couldn’t get the palette open without fear of breaking a nail, and I didn’t have them that long at all. I also find that I have to really make sure that it’s clicked shut, as just pushing it down doesn’t close it properly. I’m not sure if all of the nine pan palettes are like that, but I much prefer the cardboard packaging.
I do like that the shades have names and that they are written under the shade, as well as being on the back. Also the pans are magnetic, so if you like re-arranging your palettes, you can do that to.
It also has a mirror which is very handy, as it’s a good size.
I find that the matte shades aren’t crazy pigmented, but they are opaque and build nicely. I’ve never had a problem with applying too much and having to spend time blending it out. They’re very easy to work with, and I have no complaints at all.
The shimmers are a bit more pigmented, with Palm Reader being extremely blinding. It is a little chunky and crumbly, but it’s the most pigmented white shade I’ve ever tried.
If you’re new to eyeshadow you can’t go wrong with this palette, it’s very beginner friendly.
I know to expect fallout with ColourPop’s shimmery shades, and this palette is no different. When I use Coco Crush over the lid, I always get a bit of fallout under my eyes, but it doesn’t bother me, as it sweeps away easily. If fallout does bother you then that is something worth noting.
Top to Bottom: Shredded, Palm Reader, Coolada, Lovely Bunch, Coco Crush, Shell Yeah, Get Crackin’, Da Coco and Nutty.
Shredded: A matte yellow/ beige.
Palm Reader: A white shade with a slight gold flip.
Coolada: Matte taupe.
Lovely Bunch: Matte brown
Coco Crush: A pale Copper
Shell Yeah: Matte plum brown
Get Crackin: Cool toned brown with silver flecks
Da Coco: A golden bronze
Nutty: A darker chocolate brown
This palette retails for $12, which I think is brilliant for what you get.
Overall I really like this palette. I love how every shade is extremely wearable, as I find this palette is brilliant for travel. Every shade is covered, and I don’t need to reach for other palettes to complete a look. Even though I don’t like the packaging, it isn’t a deal breaker, as I love the shades and how they perform.
I struggle with neutral palettes, as I find that a lot of them are orange based and it simply does not suit me. Whereas I don’t have that problem with this palette. I’m also very happy that there isn’t a pressed glitter in this palette.
I just really love this palette and can’t recommend it enough.
That was my ColourPop Going Coconuts Eyeshadow Palette Review.
