Colourpop Lookbook: Sol & Brunch Date Palettes

Following on from my recent Colourpop haul I promised I would share some looks I have created with the two palettes. I decided to share three looks from each palette and I tried to use a range of shades. Starting with a quick rundown of each palette and a few points of note in case you didn’t see my haul post before showing the looks I created.

Sol Palette

This is one of Colourpop’s nine pan monochromatic palettes with a focus on orange hues. There is a pop of coral-red in this palette and also some great shades for everyday wear. There is an even mix of mattes and shimmers, four mattes and five shimmers. The palette performs well, is pigmented and I’m loving the warm tones – they match nicer with my hair than I thought they would!

Look #1 – Peach Bellini

Shades used: New Digs, Dynamite, Floaties and MAC’s Melon Pigment.

New Digs was applied all over the lid as a base shade before going in with Dynamite through the crease. Using my ring finger I applied Floaties all over the lid as well before topping that off with a light layer of MAC’s Melon pigment.

Look #2 – Sparkle Baby

Shades used: Unwind and Anthem.

Unwind was applied all over the lid and through the crease. Anthem was then applied over the top.

Look #3 – Tropical Sun

Shades used: New Digs, OOO, Motel and B+B.

New Digs was applied all over the lid as a base shade once again. OOO was used as a transition shade in the crease. Motel was used all over the lid below the crease and B+B was applied to the inner third to brighten things up.

Brunch Date Palette

This palette is part of the Zoella x Colourpop collaboration and the item that appealed to me most from the range. It is a twelve pan palette with shades names and packaging based around a cutesy, brunch theme. This palette also has a good mix of mattes (6) and shimmers (5), and also contains one satin shade. The shimmers in this palette are stunning and there is still ability to create different looks with the colours in this palette despite it being mostly neutral.

Look #1 – Pink Ice

Shades used: Mimosa, French Toast and Sundae Funday.

Mimosa was used all over the lid. French Toast was applied to the crease and the outer corner/outer V before using my finger to apply Sundae Funday to the main part of the eyelids.

Look #2 – Bronze Goddess

Shades used: Maple Syrup, Americano and Cinnamon Sugar.

Maple Syrup acted as the base shadow and I blended Americano into the crease. Cinnamon Sugar was applied over the top of Maple Syrup.

Look #3 – Sparkly Taupe

Shades used: Pancakes Please and Champagne Toast.

Pancakes Please was buffed all over the eyelids before using Champagne Toast on the inner half of the lids to create a soft, ombre effect.


As you can see using three shades tends to be my go to for a simple, put together look; one shade all over the lids, one as a transition shade/to deepen the crease and a shimmer applied over top of the base shade. It’s quite easy but I don’t like complicated eye makeup and having to reach for a half a dozen brushes. The majority of the time I apply shimmers with my finger as it’s more effective than using a brush.

Which eye look is your favourite?

      Those are probably my favourite looks too! The tiniest smattering of MAC’s Melon pigment makes all the difference with the Peach Bellini look! Cinnamon Sugar from Zoella’s palette is one of the nicest bronzes I’ve tried. Did you pick up anything from her collection? x

      I will admit I have loved playing with the Sol palette I need to give Brunch Date more attention. I’m kind of wishing I picked up the Supernova Liquid Shadows from the Zoella collection too! Thanks for the sweet comment lovely xxx

      I was so sad I didn’t get to wear Tropical Sun for a whole day at work, I came home with a headache at lunchtime so it only got half an outing haha, I’ll have to recreate it again soon! The shimmers in the Brunch Date palette definitely apply best with fingers, but I haven’t tried spraying a brush with Fix+ first to see if that makes a difference. I don’t bother with brushes for shimmers most of the time 😜 I’ll admit I’ve neglected the Brunch Date palette a little bit as I’ve just been in love with Sol 😢

    Wow!! Both palettes performed beautifully. I love how you usually only apply 3 colors in the same technique. My favorite look is Bronze Goddess but, Tropical Sun is so pretty, too!
