Colourpop I Think I Love You Palette – First Impressions and Swatches

Hello beautiful ladies,

First of all, I want to share with you that my uni semester is finally over so I’ll be posting on Wednesdays and Sundays again from now until February.

A few weeks ago I received an email from Colourpop that the Yes, Please palette had returned. I had been waiting for months for this palette and just kept missing out so I jumped on the website, hoping I hadn’t missed out again. I was in luck, so in the cart it went but with a minimum of $50USD to qualify for free shipping, I knew I could make that up pretty quickly. The Fem Rosa was still out of stock but the I Think I Love You was available so, in it went, plus a no filter concealer and quite a few pressed shadows.img_8582

When I received my parcel (which this time was only two weeks in shipping time rather than up to six I have waited before from Colourpop), it wasn’t the Yes, Please I was obsessed with like I thought I was going to be – it was the lesser raved about I Think I Love You. You might be thinking I’ve lost my mind with all that study but I swear, hear me out and take a look at the swatches. Sundays blog post is on the Yes, Please so you can compare.

  • COLOURPOP I Think I Love You Eyeshadow Palette

  • RRP – $16 USD ($20.80 AUD) from Colourpop (buy it here)


    img_8583First Impressions: After looking at both palettes and photographing them, it was this one that was captivating me more. I couldn’t say exactly what it was, but I ended up calling this a neutral-nude palette with a twist. It has everything to go from day to night, from simple to full glam in 12 shadows. For anyone that likes to keep things nude, its here; for anyone who likes a hint of wow, its here; for anyone who wants to push the boundaries, its here and its all in one little palette that costs $16USD (about $20AUD).

So, what about the packaging? The palette is sturdy cardboard with a magnetic close in metallic rose gold which a pain to photograph I must say. Note to Colourpop – make palettes easy to photograph for bloggers please. As you can see in the photo above, I tried to show the cover with the names so they corresponded with the palette and its not clear. With light angles, my reflection and a shiny surface, it just wasn’t happening (frustrated face).

Please note that the swatches are one swipe with my finger and the photo is in natural light.


From top to bottom:

Better Bitter: this is what I call a true metallic gold.

Belair: this one swatched a little patchy but on my eyes, it wasn’t patchy. It is described on the Colourpop site as a matte cool taupe but it looks more on the warm side to me.

Fancy Face: metallic copper. I described Lumbre from the Heat palette as metallic copper but this one is my idea of a true metallic copper (and close to Dirty Talk in colour).

Girls Bite: I’d describe this as a golden bronze/brown.

From top to bottom: img_8585

Howdy: this is a metallic deep bronze/brown.

Rowdy: this is a matte cream that wasn’t patchy at all.

My Treat: this is a metallic cream and just looks amazing as an underbrow highlight.

Level Up: this is a metallic bright golden copper and was the only one that was a bit flaky so I’m thinking that it needs to be applied with a finger.

img_8586From top to bottom: 

Screw It: this is a true metallic rose gold and my favourite metallic in the palette.

Let’s Do It: true matte black and going from that swatch, be very careful with it or its going to look like you’ve got a black eye.

Rule Breaker: while Better Bitter is my idea of a true metallic gold, this is my idea of a metallic yellow gold and having both in one palette is heaven.

My Type: matte medium brown that’s not patchy at all.

There are a few shades that are similar to the Heat palette but for those that find it too warm, this one is so much cheaper and more versatile. I’ll have a post up on the Yes, Please on Sunday.

What do you think of this palette? Does it interest you at all?

Thank you for reading 🙂

  1. Whenever I visit the Colorpop website I have been trying to ignore this palette and waiting for the Yes Please palette and Fem Rosa to be back in stock. But now, seeing the swatches, I think I should get all three when available hehehe 🙂

    1. I’ve also ordered the Fem Rosa because it was out of stock when I ordered these two but with such different shades in all three and the price, I’d say grab them all too 🙌 😍
