Fall Palettes Revisited: Colourpop Good Sport

Hey everyone! Well with Fall, comes sickness. And boy am I feeling unwell right now. But, the one good thing about being sick is that it gives me more time to blog, so why not think on the bright side. My time is pretty stretched these days, I have about as many hobbies as I can handle, possibly too much, but I’m glad to buckle down and get some blogging done. I haven’t been buying any new products lately, mostly because I haven’t been interested in most of the new releases, but I have really been enjoying rediscovering these palettes in my collection!

This time I decided to revisit the Colourpop Good Sport eyeshadow palette. This was easily my favourite palette last Fall, and I still think that it is the best eyeshadow palette Colourpop has ever made, even a year after its initial release. No, I haven’t tried all CP palettes, but I do own quite a lot of them!

Pricing

This palette is priced at $16 USD for 0.48 oz of product, which is the normal price and size for their 12-pan palettes. Unfortunately I have heard rumours that this palette was discontinued, although it is still on their website, marked “sold out”. I’ve heard Youtuber’s like Emily Noel lament it not being available anymore, and I agree! How could they discontinue this palette?! Anyways, if you already own it, hopefully this post reminds you to use it, and if you don’t, tell Colourpop to bring it back!!

Colour Story

This palette has such an inspired combination of shades, which is one of the reasons why I like it so much. Warm tones, greens and purples? Who would have thought? But this has turned out to be one of the most interesting colour palettes I have ever used! Maybe the most interesting. I also love the balance of mattes and shimmers in this palette. Lots to play with!

Formula, Pigmentation & Blend

Ah, the Colourpop eyeshadow formula. I have to say, this is still my favourite eyeshadow formula on the market, and I bought three Natasha Denona eyeshadow palettes this summer! So that tells you something. This palette is borderline flawless.

I love Colourpop mattes. They are very blendable and usually quite pigmented. They also usually build quite well on top of each other which is my favourite aspect of a matte formula. I hate having to “think strategy” when making an eye look. With this formula, it’s mindless to me. I can just do it without thinking, which I really appreciate. The only caveat is that sometimes the deeper mattes are quite a bit drier and seem to be pressed harder, and that is true for Reckless. This doesn’t bother me, but it is good to know that you will get better payoff if you use a stiffer brush (one that is not super soft), because it will pick up the product better.

What really makes this palette for me is the shimmers! There are two in particular that are insanely good: Licious and Ebb. They are ultra creamy and ultra metallic. Why aren’t all of their shimmers/metallics like this?! They are so reflective on the eye, it is breathtaking. The other shimmers in this palette are also really nice, but I don’t know, there’s just something special about those two. Overall, the CP shimmer formula is very nice. It has a good level of emollience, so that you can apply with your finger or with a brush. The shades adhere nicely to the lid, but I do prefer to still use them on a tacky base. The result is breathtaking! My only other note about the shimmers in this palette is that Rookie has blue glitter in it, which does tend to fall out slightly. It is a cool shade though and the fall out isn’t so bad that I won’t use it.

Sigh, this palette is just too good! In the next year I want to see more curated colour schemes like this from Colourpop. Let’s let go of the monochromatic trend, and let’s get creative already!

Below are four eye looks that I created with this palette recently.

Do you have this palette or something similar? I really can’t think of anything on the market that has this kind of colour scheme. It’s so unique! If you have this palette, hopefully this has reminded you to use it. If not, maybe I have inspired you to start playing with some different shades!

What eyeshadow palettes are you switching to this Fall?

    1. Aw I’m so glad you have been enjoying it! I guess it makes sense that Colourpop has to discontinue some palettes given the speed at which they release them! Do you have Fame and like it?

  1. I love seeing older palettes brought back to life! Not everything needs to be new all the time and this is a good reminder. I’m trying to hard not to buy more ColourPop right now but the smoke show palette is calling my name right now.

    I love all of your looks, especially the first & last ones!
