Woo! It's been a minute. Teaching during a pandemic really takes up all your free time and I've neglected my time here. But, it's summer and its time to get back to reviewing, writing, and sharing. Thanks so much for reading the post, and today we are talking about the new Barbie Malibu eyeshadow palette that released with the very popular fast-makeup brand Colourpop. Are you interested in this palette and wondering about the quality? Then just keep on reading!
1. Packaging and Presentation
This palette is absolutely beautiful. Let's just admit that now. The packaging is pink with pops of blue, yellow, and orange. It definitely represents that true Malibu feel. The artwork on the palette is amazing as usual when it comes to Colourpop. If you are a Barbie fan, I think you will be satisfied with the overall design of the palette. The palette itself is cardboard packaging, which in my opinion, is the best type of packaging from Colourpop, and I prefer it over their plastic packaging. Inside there are fifteen shades with colors ranging from peach, pink, blue, several neutrals, and a pop of yellow.
2. Formula and Color story
The palette formula is the usual good formula from Colourpop. The colorful shades are pigmented and easy to blend. The shimmers are shiny. There is a bit of kick-up and some of the matte shades can be a bit powedery but it's nothing terrible. Overall, the formula of this palette is great. Additionally, the color story is actually one that is a bit more creative coming from the brand, (in my humble opinion), but of course it depends on the colors you like best.
3. Overall verdict ?????
I really like this palette. The looks you can come up with this 15 pan palette can be varied and you can get very creative with the colors in this palette. The formula is good and the packaging is stellar. If you are a Barbie fan, I think you'd love this palette, and if you aren't a Barbie fan, I think you would still enjoy this palette.
