The ColourPop Grandeur Palette contains a mix of warm and cool toned eyeshadows. The shades don’t actually remind me of anything that blooms… except for maybe flowers that I forgot to water for too long. BUT as eyeshadows I think they’re really wearable and can also create some fancier glam looks for a night out.

ColourPop Grandeur 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette includes three shimmery eyeshadows, five (mostly) matte eyeshadows, and one pressed glitter (which isn’t intended for eye usage).

As long as you’re someone who doesn’t mind some fallout from the sparkling matte finish ColourPop likes to use these days, I think the palette is pigmented, easy to use, and had good wear.

At the heart of it Grandeur is a neutral palette. The browns are very ordinary, but they are shades I will reach for. They make the palette more wearable for someone who just wants a little something in their crease, and the mattes will go with pretty much any topper or metallic shadow.

The metallic shades in the palette are smooth and pigmented. I wasn’t blown away by the pigmentation but it’s a step up from regular drugstore shadows.

ColourPop has amazing eyeshadows for intermediate level makeup lovers and beginners alike. With the darker shades you do get some fallout, but it’s nothing a makeup eraser or wipe can’t fix.
