Colourpop - Fem Rosa / She Eyeshadow Palette Showcase & Review

The Colourpop Fem Rosa Pallete or She Palette was made in collaboration with Karrueche. I just realized it's not available anymore and has been discontinued at the time of writing. I believe it was released in 2017, and man, time really does fly.


But anyway, I'm still going to make a showcase and review for this palette as I promised to make a post for every single product in my collection.


💖 To-know before you read my makeup reviews 💖

- I'm Asian, hence all my swatches are based on yellow-toned skin.

- I live in Malaysia (tropical, humid and hot af climate)

- I have dry to very dry skin

First Impressions

This is my first ever Colourpop eyeshadow palette, and referring to my name Ruby, you probably already know that I'm a sucker for red eyeshadows. I was very attracted to the warm burgundies and reds in the palette.

Swatches

🖤 Shades -

First Row

Ladylike - Ok🙂 - This is a champagne shimmer that is great for the inner corners. Good performance and shine for a metallic.

Babe - Eh🤔 - A rather sheer satin shade, color payoff isn't as much as I would want it to be. Skin-color, peach shimmer. Could be used as a transition shade but it's a shimmer though.

Dainty - YES💖 - A metallic mauve or taupe that sits between pink and purple. Great color payoff and performance!

Chick - YESSSSSS💖 - Probably my favorite lighter metallic shade in this palette. It has a truly unique sheen to it that glows a soft gold with a very faint pink shift.


Second Row

Mademoiselle - YES💖 - Similar to Dainty but in a deeper and richer tone. Wonderful color payoff.

Gal - Eh🤔 - The only glitter shade in the palette, and I'm unfortunately not a glitter fan. The red glitter will fall onto your face if you apply too much on your lids. It still has a metallic copper shade underneath the glitter.

Empress - YES💖 - Yet another metallic shade, which leans more to purple this time. It doesn't have as much of a sheen compared to the previous two (Dainty and Mademoiselle) but I like this shade exactly for that reason.

Filly - YESSSSSS💖 - The official description is that this shade is a metallic rusty orange, but its more of a metallic red in my eyes. My favorite color in a wonderful metallic formula. Like Empress, the sheen is toned down, which I love.

Third Row

Dear - YES💖 - This is a warm matte pink shade that blends beautifully and has wonderful color payoff on the lids.

Missy - Ok🙂 - I have trouble blending this matte wine red, and you need time to make it work. But even so, I find the next shade harder to work with.

Damsel - Eh🤔 - This is the hardest shade to work with, but also my most used shade because I use it to line my eyes a lot. It can easily look blotchy and patchy if you don't take your time blending it. I know that purples are hard to formulate, but I still wished it performed like the lighter matte shades.

Duchess - YES💖 - Now this looks more rusty pink/orange to me haha. This has the same formula as Dear, also with rich color payoff.


TL;DR -

Favorite Shades - Chick, Filly, Dear

Hard to Work With Shades - Damsel


Here are some looks I've created with the palette. Pardon the quality of my phone's camera.

Finally, here's my personal ratings for the product!

(7.5/10)

💖 Majority of the eyeshadows have wonderful color payoff and performance (9/12 Shades)

💖 Beautiful collection for red/burgundy girls like me.

💖 Can be used for warm, sunshine looks with their light shimmers and also dark smoky looks with their dark mattes.

💖 I really love 'Chick'! One of the most unique shades I've seen! I'd buy it as a single!

😶 With only four mattes in the palette, it's kind of a bummer that two of the darkest shades 'Missy' and 'Damsel' are harder to work with.

😶 Glitter mess if you use 'Gal'. You could opt for a glitter glue if you want to!
