I am here to share another palette review! This time it’s the ColourPop Sweet Talk Pressed Powder Palette. I am so excited to write a post about this palette because it’s just so pretty! Are you guys ready? Let’s goo!!

I love when ColourPop has these cardboard/magnetic closure palettes. I just like these better and I feel like the plastic ones are more at risk of breaking if they fall. For example, I actually dropped this palette and I freaked out, but everything is fine!
The palette is gorgeous inside and out, so flowery and pink/peachy tones all over. It just looks super unique and nothing like their other palettes so to me it stands out a lot. It does have the shade names in the back as well as on the inside right underneath each shade. It does not come with a mirror but that’s okay! Also, I am aware that it’s a bit more pricey than their other palettes, but it seems they might be accounting for the new pressed glitters? Possibly even the super shock shadow being in a palette for the first time? I don’t know for sure..
Formula & Application
I picked up this palette because I really like the color story; it has a nice range of oranges and corals, some neutrals, yellows, pinks, reds and browns. It also has three different finishes; Matte, Metallic, and Glitter.I am going to tell you guys right away that this palette is really really good! I was impressed with the pressed glitters as well as their super shock shadow because they’re both new to me. CP is known for their amazing Super Shock Shadows but I’ve NEVER tried them before getting this palette so yes, impressive and pretty!
I do have several single pressed powders so I’ve become familiar with their formulas and I really like them. Most of them are very velvety smooth and blend easily, so this palette was no different. The shades are also pigmented and I did not have a difficulty building up the shades.
The palette has a shade to set your primer, several transition shades that vary in color, the darker ones to smoke out any look, the metallics which are super pigmented, and of course the glitters. The glitters do take some time and patience to work with, they’re best applied with finger tips WITH glitter primer so they stick. The glitter primer will also prevent too much fallout.
I do not have anything bad to say about this palette, no two shades are alike which is a plus for me, especially when it comes to the transition shades because I don’t feel like I’m creating the same look over and over again.

I do have a tutorial on this last look on my channel if you guys are interested and I briefly talk about the palette as well:
This is a great palette and I’m so glad I got it! I was concerned at first that I wouldn’t be able to create different kinds of looks with it, but I was surprised that I did, because the shades all vary in color. The palette is super pretty and it quickly became a summer favorite, so if you guys don’t have something like this in your collection, I definitely recommend it!
What kind of palettes are your favorites??
