ColourPop | On The Daily

Natasha Denona recently launched her new Camel Palette and it made me crave something really neutral and easy, especially after a week and a half of green and smoky eye looks. While this quad doesn't have the exact look of Natasha's palette - it feels similar. It's got that same chill, everyday vibe that is still exciting because of the beautiful metallics - and it was already sitting in my collection so I did not have to break my no-buy for it. 

Honestly, I want the Natasha Denona Camel Palette which is a whopping $48 for 5 shadows. But I am trying to make better choices regarding the amount of money I spend on makeup and for the foreseeable future that palette is not within my means. In the meantime - ColurPop's On The Daily will have to quench those camel-type cravings that I've been having.

The On The Daily Eyeshadow Palette is a great way to go if you're not in the mood for one of ColourPop's larger palettes. These are full-sized single eyeshadows, not the mini sizes in many ColourPop palettes, which means you can really rely on using this palette for the long-run. At only $3 per single, this is not just a good value for the money, it's a great way to collect singles that are already curated for you. I can get overwhelmed when trying to put shades this together, and this quad makes it as easy as it can get.

On The Daily Pressed Eyeshadow Palette includes the shades:
You Know The Drill: metallic light bronze-gold
B-Side: matte warm nude
Optional: matte mid-tone
Paper Crane: warm brown metallic

I really like the overall look of this palette, it's very sleek and minimalistic. It's also a perfect size for traveling and because it includes a mirror, it's also handbag friendly. I don't work out of the home now but when I did I always carried a little makeup bag with me and this is the perfect sized palette for that. 

I do think this palette was curated exceptionally well - I think most people will appreciate the shades in here as is. But I will probably add a deeper brown or plum/burgundy and take out either You Know The Drill or B-Side, just because I personally need a deeper shade for creating my perfect eye look. But I think most people will be happy with Optional as their deepest shade.

If you already know the ColourPop formula then this is exactly the same quality you've come to expect. The mattes are super easy to work with, they have very minimal kickback (if any) in the pans and really no fall-out. The shimmers are super pretty and apply beautifully with a brush or finger, and do not need to be foiled. And even though there are only four shades in this palette, I have found it to be quite versatile: I can go all matte, all shimmer, do one-shadow looks, or play with them all at once. And - I don't feel like an eyeshadow idiot, especially because each shadow is so good that you really can't fuck it up. (excuse my French)

It's funny how once you get the hang of eyeshadow application, even four shadows can become versatile. I used to think I had to buy all the shadows, have as many choices as possible, and maybe then I could create beautiful eye looks. But it's actually more about quality, buying the right shades for you, and actually using them.

On The Daily is currently out of stock but if ColourPop should bring it back and you like these shades, then I highly suggest picking it up. Don't forget you can get a $5 off coupon code and free shipping from ColourPop if you shop through the Dote App and use my code: ZOBG. That's how I got this palette for only $7.
