Pop Smokey Rose Palette Review

I know, I know. You're probably tired of my babblings about Pop lately but I can't help myself they have come out with some truly awesome items lately.

What started out as a few palettes for the eyes has turned into an entire line up of fantastic palette after palette after palette releases that are such a steal!

The newest palette entitled Smokey Rose combines not only a ton of eyeshadows but also gloss and blush this time around! Sweet!

The Muse likey a palette with tons of goodies that covers my entire face! The convenience of a do it all palette thrills me to absolute pieces!

So, What's the scoop? What do I get?

Let me tell you........

You get 12 Eyeshadows, 4 Cheek Colors, 2 Lip Colors, and One Dual Ended Brush for $42 USD! That, my dear girls, is a steal in my humblest.

You'd pay close to $35 USD anyway for six shadows or so in a palette! This gives you eyeshadows plus cheek colors plus lip colors plus a brush..what more could you possibly want?!

Shadow Selection

Blush Selection

Lip Color Selection

If you're on a bit of a budget this is a great palette as it offers so much variety for a small cost. If you're a no nonsense type of girl that doesn't like stashing large quantities of cosmetics this would be for you as it has a healthy selection of goodies stowed away in a cute checkbook style wallet!

The shades in the wallet range from darker to medium to lighter. Lighter can be used as a highbrow highlighter or as an all over color wash for prepping the eye area while the darker shades can be used to smoke your eye out or to use as a liner and finally the medium shades can be used on the lid.

You can get very creative with the palette and create dozens of looks!

The blushes range from bronzey to pink and lighter to darker. You can use the darker shades to contour the face and the brighter colors on your cheek bones! The lip colors included are a deep shade of cranberry stain and a lighter glossier pink. The stain gives the appearance of just bitten lips while the glossier nude pink looks gorgeous on top for a bit of shine!

Tips and Trixs for Application:
  • Use any of the 4 darker shades as eyeliners to line and define the shape of your eye!
  • Apply a medium tuned color onto lid and blend into crease to create a gorgeous look!
  • Apply a nude cheek color all over the cheekbone and a pink color on the apples of the cheek only!
  • Stain lips with the cranberry stain and dot pastel pink in the middle of the top and bottom lip for a plumper, fuller lip look!

The Muse is loving Pop lately and thinks the newest Smokey Rose Palette is definately gorgeous! The packaging is a gorgeous snap close, faux croc purple wallet with a loop for holding the brush inside. Easy storage! Easy for toting around in your purse!

Pop's Smokey Rose Palette is most definately Muse Approved for purchase! It's pigmented, it has a large selection of gorgeous goodies, it's compact, it comes with it's own brush....yup, it's definately Muse Approved!

It's Mother's Day soon maybe grab one for your Mum and yourself while you're at it!

Hi Izzy, how's your monday? Great value for money palette but I never fancy this. Most of the time, there will be a few colours that puts me off. The moc croc skin looks like a classic clutch though.

It kinda looks like the revamped Red Earth Palette.

gracie :)

You know, I think the girl that founded POP is Swedish, but living in London.
I'm still not impressed with POP. Stood at the counter today but, no, alas nothing went home with me. Or nothing from POP...
