Is Colourpop California love the best neutral palette on the market?
Lucy and I both love Colourpop eyeshadows and eye shadow palettes. I personally have more Colourpop palettes than any other brand in my collection, even after my massive declutter. Lucy and I both have Pat McGrath, Viseart, and Natasha Denona palettes in our collection – Lucy is a high end eyeshadow lover – but we both really love Colourpop. I don’t know how they manage to make such good quality shadows for these affordable prices. I really don’t!
My Thoughts on the Palette
California Love is a warm toned palette which is what I love most! I don’t usually go for neutral palettes but these warm browns and oranges were irresistible. Colourpop describes it as a “warm golden bronze palette.” It’s a good mixture of mattes and shimmers and the mattes perform well. The matte golden yellow shade Sequoia is absolutely gorgeous. This is a palette that you could use for work and easily pop on one of the glitter shades for going out afterward without having to change your whole eye look.
Other than the tight-lining on my water line, this entire look including all the glitter is from this palette. There is not a shade in this palette that disappoints. It is one of my favorite Colourpop palettes although I can’t pick just one favorite from them.

10 out of 10. I can’t think of anything I would change about this palette. It has 200 five star reviews on Colourpop’s website so I am not the only one!
