Colourpop has been launching palettes left and right and to be blunt, it’s starting to get a little overwhelming. They recently just launched their holiday collection which I ordered a couple of things from, but overall, their palettes are what I immediately get during launches. I realized I was missing another palette too in my collection which I picked up and pretty soon I’ll have them all. The first one that I want to review is my current fav, You had me at Hello.
Like their OG palette Yes, Please!, this palette comes with 12 shades with a themed packaging and shade set. The only difference from this palette and the rest is that it’s the first to come with its own mirror, which I absolutely love because I travel often, making this my new go to pick.
The price point for this palette up’d itself $2 USD compared to its usual price, but I find it well worth it with the newly added feature. It has a mauve toned theme to it with a lot of gold complimenting it, a good range of metallics, shimmers, as well as mattes. I feel as though the shades still fall in a good neutral range so it’s not too over the top, and you can use it on a daily basis, but still having a few fun pop of colour shades in the mix.
I really love the small finer details in this palette as I find it very aesthetically pleasing. The frame bordering the mirror is extremely cute, a silhouette of string lights to add a romantic atmosphere. This palette retails for $18 USD / $23 CAD.
Moon Struck: Next we have another metallic shade, more of a soft gold colour.
Two Peas: The first matte shade in this palette, it’s a nice neutral tawny beige, perfect for transitioning.
Candygram: This shade is absolutely stunning! It’s a rose gold metallic shade, with gold reflects shining through.
Winning Ticket: Is a dusty mauve toned brown, a little bit like a warm hot chocolate colour. Well, at least my idea shade for hot cocoa.
FBO: A metallic rusty pink, almost copper toned with hints of violet reflects. TIL FBO means Facebook Official.
Look-See: A true dusty mauve shade.
Fools Rush: A metallic bronze shade. Honestly, think of all the looks you can do with this shade ♥
Pulling Strings: A warm toned wheat brown. Mine came with a nipple which I tried to edit out.
Want U Back: Matte warm toned dusty taupe
DTR: Define The Relationship, a metallic cashmere colour
Sparks Fly: Deep plum based matte brown

Each colour swatched quite beautifully and it was very pigmented. The only shade from the first six that I had partial issues with was Candyman, as you can see it came on slightly patchy. The metallic foil formula seemed more like it was meant to be patted on the lid vs swiping so it’s very understandable. I really love The Knot, I think some of the shades in this palette is highly suitable for bridal makeup.

The most disappointing shade in the palette was Sparks Fly, as much as I wanted to love it, it was really patchy and hard to swatch. I personally hope that it would blend out easier. Other than that, I love the colour scheme of this palette and the overall quality of it.
