Innovative and budget friendly cosmetic brand – Colourpop Cosmetics has an array of mini eyeshadow palettes, with purple being my favourite colour, I immediately gravitated toward the “It’s My Pleasure” eyeshadow palette.
Here is my Colourpop “It’s my Pleasure” eyeshadow palette review.
Neat, minimalistic, attractive and quirky – the “It’s My Pleasure” pressed powder shadow palette are arranged on a white pan with mirror for convenience – I find I always make use of my eyeshadow palette mirrors.
Charmingly presented in a purple compact, you will find that the eyeshadow names are printed on the back of the palette and not on a separate sleeve that I always seem to misplace – which I’m definitely in favour of.
Colourpop It’s My Pleasure Swatches:
With a total of nine shades including lavenders, berries and violets with textures of mattes and buttery metallics, this mini eyeshadow palette has pulled all the stops.
For transition shades, I use “Kittenfish” and “Pretty Cool” delicately and “Earthshine” and “Mr. Sandman” metallic shades as inner corner eyeshadows.
Pigment & Textures:
These shadows glide on effortlessly, especially the metallics that have a soft and buttery feel.
Each shadow is highly pigmented and just a touch is required for for maximum colour impact.
It’s imperative to apply an eyeshadow primer as I found these eyeshadows slightly stain my skin, even with a primer on.
Fallout is minimum for the metallic shades, however the more product you pick up with your brush, the more fallout you experience – only a little shadow is required for application; there is no fallout for the mattes.
As a suggestion, apply your eyeshadow first when using this palette, as the metallic shades have glitter particles, which will mess up your makeup.
How To Use:
Easy to blend and mix and match shades, watch this video with a look I created:
Cost And How To Purchase in South Africa:
$12 on the Colourpop Cosmetics website
International shipping on this site is $9.99 (about R150).
International shipping is done via the post office (so don’t be in a hurry to receive your parcel, it takes a while).
Shipping is free internationally if purchases amount to $50 and over – but remember custom charges for this at approximately 45% of the total.
I do prefer making purchases at $50 at a time, especially when there is a sale, so I get more for my buck and even with the custom charges I still save this way.
Alternatively, you can order Colourpop cosmetics through a forwarding courier company such as Aramex Global Shopper and if your purchases are under R500, expect to pay about R200 for shipping costs.
For US shipping the flat rate is $5.99 (about R90) so shipping will cost a total of about R290 with this method – I personally rather pay customs through the South African post office.
Another option is to purchase from South African resellers.
Where To Purchase From:
The Colourpop Website here: https://colourpop.com/products/its-my-pleasure-eyeshadow-palette
- Attractive palette
- Highly pigmented (a little product is required)

This monochromatic palette consists of the prettiest colours that compliment each other when mixed, matched and blended, furthermore it’s the dupe to the Huda Precious Stones Amethyst eyeshadow palette. I absolutely recommend you add this palette to your collection.
