Colourpop X CoffeeBreakWithDani | Metamorphosis Quad Review and Demo

Friday, June 19, 2015

CoffeeBreakWithDani, a popular YouTuber, just launched a collaboration with Colourpop Cosmetics. The quad is called Metamorphosis (Be The Change) and it is nothing short of breathtaking. 

We already know my obsession with Colourpop is unhealthy, but this is not the first collaboration they've launched with an internet star, but it's the first one I could not resist. And it's not that I am obsessed with Dani, I mean she's great, check her out, but I'm not a crazy fan girl or anything. The colors just drew me in and I ordered it the minute I saw it. Probably my most intense "impulse" purchase haha

This collection is definitely unique even though it might not seem so at first. You get 4 regular sized shadows for $20 (which is what you would pay for any 4 shadows as they are all $5) ;

Kindness - Warm red brown undertone with a gold, green and blue duo chrome in a sheer opal finish (amaze)
Hope - Radiant opal with pink, violet, blue and silver duo chrome in a sheer opal finish (I know right? Again, drool)
Strength - Soft peachy caramel with a satin finish
Bravery - True medium brown with a matte finish

Now they don't look like much in the pan, but dang girl, hold up!

Top to Bottom : Kindness, Hope, Strength, Bravery
Again it's impossible to swatch the awesomeness of duo chrome as it's all about how it follows the light and transitions... Kindness and Hope are not meant to be opaque and get new life/color depending what base you use under (hence the name Metamorphosis, I assume?)
For example, here they are over a black base ;

Pretty crazy huh? Well maybe not like CA-Razy but you know, it's pretty interesting! Basically there's tons of possibilities for these shadows and I'm pretty excited about it. This quad definitely brought me out of my comfort zone as well, as some of the color and finishes are a bit bolder than I'm used to...

I still think I came up with a pretty wearable look. This is what I did for a party last night:

1. Used a light nude shade all over the eye (from La Palette Nude 1) as a base shade, to make sure everything would blend nicely.
2. Swiped Strength all along the crease (it's the most wonderful transition shade)
3. Used Bravery on the outer edge/crease
4. Popped Hope in the inner corner
5. Dabbed Kindness from the middle of my lid until it met with Bravery
6. Gently went under the lower lash line with Bravery and then smudged it out a bit with Kindness.
7. Lightly contoured with Colourpop bronzer in Paradise Cove
8. Added Colourpop blush in Prenup
9. Used Colourpop highlighter in Monster on top of the cheeks
10. Finished off with some lipstick ; Colourpop Lippie Stix in Fern

Overall, I'm really pleased with this quad. I actually quite liked the look I came up with and would do it again, but I think I would use them more often not necessarily all at once. And again, for the price, the quality, I'm just in love with this brand. They could do no wrong! 10/10 would repurchase!

What do you guys think? Would you go for colors like these?

Talk to you soon!

-Xoxo, Val
