ColourPop is an affordable makeup brand that offers a huge range of eyeshadow palettes. As well as mixed palettes, ColourPop are renowned for their colour-themed palettes.
Just My Luck Review
Just My Luck is their green-themed palette and includes 9 shades; 5 matte and 4 metallic. Each shade is highly pigmented and the colour pay-off is incredible. ColourPop palettes are so affordable, especially for the quality; this palette is normally $12, and I got it for $9 on sale.
This eyeshadow is so long-lasting, and will look exactly the same in the evening as it does when first applied in the morning. It doesn’t crease, slide or fade at all; truly incredible staying power.
Just My Luck Palette Colours
While you may think that a palette based around one colour won’t provide you with much option when it comes to the looks you can produce, you would be surprised how many looks you can craft from one of these. The darker shades can be worn daily, for a subtler green look, whereas you can add the more vibrant shades, such as ‘Mary Jane’, for a more exciting eye.
I was personally unsure about using green eyeshadow before, but after getting the Shane Dawson x Jeffree Star palette, the shades I was most drawn to were the two green shades. I didn’t actually own any other palettes with green shades in, so I decided to buy Just My Luck from ColourPop to experiment more.
Something I love about ColourPop palettes is how glittery a lot of their shades are. Even the matte shades often contain glitter for a really shimmery finish. However, some ColourPop palettes include glitter that is not safe for use in the immediate eye area, as the glitter chunks are a bit too big. This is not the case in the Just My Luck palette, making it a great choice for those who are a bit apprehensive about that.
