Colourpop Sol Eyeshadow Palette – Makeup look, Review and Swatches!

Like with the Mar palette I just reviewed I will have both the review and the makeup looks in one post rather than separating them into two, because the palette only holds 9 shades, and I don’t want my looks to repetitive, so I only made two.

Sol is Mar’s sister palette and they were released in the same summer collection. While MAR is bronze and blue, SOL is filled with warm coppers, orange and raspberry shades. Fun and bright summer colors!

These are the two looks I created with the palette:

Just like the Mar palette this has that plastic packaging with a decent sized mirror in it. The palette is quite small, and handy to travel or just keep in your makeup bag. I do really like the size and amount of shadows in here, but I would prefer a cardboard packaging. The plastic feels a bit cheap in my opinion. I am afraid the hinges may not be as long lasting, and the closing is simple as it gets. I think their usual cardboard would be better.

But the quality of the shadows are amazing. I feel like lately Colourpop has done no wrong with their eyeshadow palettes. I mean, they have always been good, but lately I find myself not having anything bad to point out at all. Every single shadow in the palettes are just great! Same with this. The shadows all work beautifully and they are so rich. smooth and pigmented. The eyeshadow that really stands out to me is “Motel”, a stunning satin raspberry shade. Again, as with the Mar palette, I feel like I found a shade within this palette that I don’t already have in my collection (and my collection is huge!). So it is always a bonus to find something unique.

So yeah, Colourpop did it again and released another great palette. I hope they will continue releasing palettes of this size because it’s very handy to store. And for someone with a large collection I really appreciate slim and nice packaging.

Which one of these palettes do you prefer? Are you team Mar or team Sol? I think I am a part of the Mar team. The palettes are equally good, but there is just something about blue shades that I can’t resist! What about you?
