The 12 pan pressed eyeshadow palettes from ColourPop really are one of my favourite makeup products. They are small, budget friendly and the quality is consistently good.
I love eyeshadow. It is my weakness.
ColourPop has released quite a few of these 12 pan palettes now but one of the criticisms has been that there are quite a few colour similarities across the palettes SO it was refreshing to see the Good Sport palette released as the colour story is quite unique.
In my opinion this is a really fantastic all around palette. I love the balance of neutral and colourful shades and the balance of mattes to shimmers. I really enjoy the way this has been curated and have found that with these 12 shades I have really been able to create SO many different looks. The packaging is animal print, sturdy cardboard and doesn’t have a mirror if that matters to you.
There are five shimmer shades: a champagne (Wild Out), a bright yellow gold (Licious), a green-toned taupe (Hooked) a stunning green (EBB) and the most unique shade is a rose gold with blue micro shimmer (Rookie). These are stunning. Like creamy, pigmented… STUNNING. Applied we or with your finger these really do shine bright.
There are seven mattes in a mixture of purples, browns, a yellow and a deep green-grey. Four of the mattes are creamy, smooth and beautiful. In comparison the remaining three shades, (Sista, Reckless and Flow) are very pigmented but feel really dry and powdery. I was worried that they would be patchy as I have had that issue with really dry mattes in the past but these did work well. I would say that you can over blend these three if you aren’t careful but I didn’t have issues with patchiness. As with all ColourPop mattes all of these shades do kick up quite a bit in the pan so if that annoys you beware, but overall, I am impressed.
Overall, I would say that Good Sport is currently my favourite ColourPop 12 pan palette. These colours are just stunning and the combination is so unique in my collection. I am finding it hard to put this one down.
Have a wonderful day!
