Like all of ColourPop’s 9-pan palettes, the Going Coconuts palette is housed in a square plastic palette and includes a mirror. I know it’s nice that the packaging is in line with the other monochromatic palettes and that having a mirror is nice, but it would be awesome if ColourPop would consider releasing only cardboard palettes going forward, to help minimize the waste going into the environment.

The full-size Going Coconuts Palette has 0.03 oz. or 0.90 grams of product per shade, has magnetic shadow pans, comes in a plastic palette, and has a nice big sized mirror.

ColourPop claims that the Going Coconuts palette has a long wearing formula that is highly pigmented and that applies evenly. I should mention that those claims are actually just copied and pasted from one 9-pan palette to another same as the claims from one 12-pan to another.

I feel completely comfortable wearing these to any occasion, whether it’s work, going out on the weekend, or to a special event. This palette also contains the right shades to make up a complete look – there’s a transition shade, a shade to deepen the crease, a few choices for all-over lid shades, and a highlighting shade.

For those of you that don’t like ColourPop’s pressed glitters, you’ll be happy to note that this is their first palette in quite a while that doesn’t include a pressed glitter! I dislike pressed glitters to the point where I’ve avoided buying any of the ColourPop palettes that include that formula, even if the rest of the palette appeals to me.

Overall, the quality of this palette is fantastic. All of the shades blend well and have amazing colour payoff.
