The ColourPop So Very Lovely Palette is the first new palette I have purchased since last year. Sometimes when looking at new releases, I’ll mentally go through what I already have and think of what I have that might be similar. What came to mind first was the original ABH Norvina Palette just because of that one pop of cool toned lavender. The shades in that palette are different but the concept is similar.
Most of the looks I’ve done in the past have been centered around a particular palette but I’ve wanted to get into single shadows for a while. I’ve had several that I’ve swatched but never given a serious try just wasting away in my drawers. Out of all the shades used in this look the ones I was most curious about were Menagerie Eel-lectric and Terra Moons Radiation.
I bought these some time last spring out of curiosity to try a new brand and because each palette had a couple of shades that seemed like things I didn’t already have. Specifically, Venom, Alchemy 2.0, and Bucolic Baby were the shades that caught my eye from Wild Berry. Metropolitan didn’t call to me as much but in that one, Nothing Personal, and Alaska were the shades I thought would be unique to my collection. In this post I included comparison swatches for those shades in an effort to see if they were actually things I didn’t already have.
I’m starting what will probably be a long process of decluttering. I’ve been thinking of doing this for over a month now and haven’t made much progress because it can get overwhelming and can be difficult to make decisions. To start, I set aside items that I’m considering getting rid of. This is what is in the four boxes that are sitting in front of my cabinets. I think it can help to do this if you have the space to store stuff temporarily.
