ColourPop Good Sport Pressed Powder Shadow Palette

There have been so many new palette releases the last couple months. I was super excited to see this palette released from ColourPop as part of their Fall collection though. The colors in this palette just scream Fall or Autumn season to me.

Good Sport is also a great alternative or "dupe" to the new Too Faced Gingerbread Spice eyeshadow palette. I actually find the quality to look better with the ColourPop Good Sport palette more than the Gingerbread Spice palette. Gingerbread Spice costs a lot more at $49 vs $16 for Good Sport.

Description: We made your Fall transition easy. This 12 pan palette is the perfect mix of smoky neutrals and rich jewel tones that will take you into the new season effortlessly. Create your entire look with one palette with the help of matte and metallic finishes.

Retail Price: $16.00

Purchase From: ColourPop

Shopping Tip: You can get $5 off your first ColourPop order by clicking here!

Shade Names & Descriptions:
Wild Out: metallic warm champagne
Hooky: matte rich terracotta
Rookie: burnt orange with blue glitter
Sista: matte vibrant violet
Licious: metallic yellow gold
High Hopes: matte peachy saddle brown
Reckless: matte rich maroon
Trooper: matte marigold
Hooked: metallic icy moss
Trophies: matte dusty purple
Ebb: vibrant metallic olive
Flow: matte blackened olive brown

A close up of the Good Sport Eyeshadow Palette! How cute is the leopard print packaging?!

Swatches of the ColourPop Good Sport eyeshadow palette below!

My top favorite eyeshadow shades in the Good Sport palette are Rookie, Reckless, Sista, Licious, and EBB. All of the shades applied nicely minus Flow. As you can see in the swatch above it applied a little splotchy in the swatch. I definitely suggest you add Good Sport to your Fall makeup routine while it's still available on their website! 😉
