MY TAKE ON COLOURPOP POLITE AF SHADOW KIT

Packaging: I absolutely love the packaging! The eye shadows come in a pretty looking sturdy box, neatly enclosed in the moulds with flip open lid. The packaging is temporary though because it is a part of the kit but I don’t think I will ever throw it away!

Texture: The super shock shadows are very soft and feel like cream but settle to a powdery finish. I absolutely love the texture.

COLOURPOP POLITE AF SHADOW KIT REVIEW

Shade: The kit has 6 gorgeous shades, below is a summary on each-

Deep Dive- This is a bronze shade with gold and purple shimmer in it.

Drift- This is a true cranberry shade which isn’t as shimmery as the other shades in kit. It has a very subtle shimmer which looks lovely.

Birthday Girl- This is my favorite shade in the kit! It looks like white glitter on the lids and can be used with many shades to create a shimmery look you prefer.

Birthday Cake- This is another gorgeous shade that is light baby pink with loads of silver and pink shimmer.

Stereo- This is deep plum shade with prominent purple shimmer.

Sequin- This is a copper shade with white and yellow shimmer in it.

Fragrance: The eye shadows have no fragrance at all!

How I use and staying power: These shadows are best applied with finger tips or with a dense oval brush. I find using these with finger tips a lot easier! Since the shadows are insanely pigmented, you don’t even need a lot of product. Simply swipe once in the pan and tap on your lids. you can use a brush to blend out the edges or to apply on the inner corner of your eyes or under your eyes.

Descending order- Deep Dive, Drift, Birthday Girl, Birthday Cake, Stereo, Sequin

I have been wanting a glittery shadow or loose shimmer that comes separately that needs a glue to apply on the lids for a very long time. I never really flaunted glittery lids but I knew I would get the shimmery shadows some day and I have got just that! The finish is just like loose shimmer but you need not use any glue or anything, simply apply the shadow with finger tips and there you are- gorgeous shimmery lids! Also the good part is that the shadows and shimmer stay in place all day long and also there isn’t any fallout wile application which is the best thing ever! You can use just these for an overall ombre shimmery look (like I have done) or just apply this on the center of lids or even combine it with any other matte shades to create a look you wish. I already want to experiment with these especially the ‘Birthday girl’ shade which is a gorgeous white glittery shade and will look great when combined with matte smokey eyes. I absolutely love the kit as it has some really amazing shades and the texture too is the best!
