Nice and small, comes with a spongetip applicator for your convenience. I like how they’re magnetic.
Same experience as with the other palette though, check out what happened to that one here. For those who didn’t read it: the material is pretty flimsy, so for the price.. they could’ve done a little more right?

Also there’s no mirror again, a make up tutorial replaced that, so to make sure the purples don’t make you look like you have a black eye I suggest you get yourself a seperate one! >_<

Smell

POP beauty smell lol? This is becoming a real item! The strange glue/disinfectant smell again. So let me know what you think it is if you win this!

Colors & pigmentation

click me, click me!

Extremely cool toned palette.  I feel this will work better on darker skintones during the day, on my warm-toned fair skin it looked a bit harsh, but that’s personal taste! Wait till you turn vamp at night, then pull out this palette! It will be far more in its element! And then dust some of the highlighter over your body as well. TEAM TAKE-OFF-SHIRT!

I do enjoy the third color for a quick wash during the day, it looks nice from the lid blended up toward the browbone and some eyeliner. I would say that one’s the most special shade of them all, the other ones are just your good ol’ smokeys!

1: extremely dark grey, when applied it looks almost matte with a faint silver shimmer through it

2: deep blue based purple, velvet finish

3: taupy grey, velvet finish

4: red based purple, velvet finish

5: light silver, velvet finish

6: shimmery white with velvet finish, lovely soft effect to it when you blend it in however the highlighter in the lid gold palette is my fav!

The back of the palette says “lid-shimmers” but what I like about pop shadows is that they have more of a velvet finish to them. So much more forgiving, it gives your lids a healthy glow without being overpowering.

On a finishing note I have to give credit to pop beauty again for including a highlighter, it gives this palette multipurpose-points.

Texture

Copy-paste alert, feel free to scroll down if you’ve seen my other review!

As with the pop eye trio, they’re soft, buttery, and easily blendable, but they can be chalky (fallout alert). On the picture I used a milky base underneath, and once again that makes them show up true to color.
What I conclude from that is that the pigment in them is nice, however being so soft it needs something to stick to. The texture could use some work to make them less powdery.

The regular price for these is on the high side I think, I would personally go for the eye pop trios then. Only three colors, but more of each color, a mirror, and sturdy packaging. However if you get them on sale, like me, they’re great for the price!

Staying power & quality

On my oily lids they don’t stay put without a primer, no matter what the promises are. Then again no shadow does!

The verdict

As for this palette, the colors are nice for either darker skin or evening wear. I personally don’t see myself reaching for this a lot during the day.  Then the second thing, as with the lid gold, I wish it came with a mirror for traveling!
The price is a bit too high for what you get I think, these retail for $24! I wouldn’t repurchase, the price is too high for something I won’t wear a lot. However if you really enjoy your silver smokeys, and you find these on sale, go for it!
