Today I wanted to share the Colour Pop Metamorphosis and Rebound sets with you. The Metamorphosis set was created by YouTube Beauty Guru CoffeeBreakWithDani. (I still hate that term guru). I bought this set because of the duochromes. I’m a sucker for duochromes. I bought Rebound because I was interested in Too Soon, Ex & Adios.
Colour Pop Metamorphosis and Rebound
Colour Pop is cruelty free and most products are vegan. They’re also made in the USA in California.
Where to Buy
I swatched all of the eyeshadows on my bare skin without using primer. I used my finger tip to apply each color. Yes, I’m experimenting with new ways to swatch.
One & Done
Soft butter cream ivory / Matte Finish
Light yellow-toned ivory matte. This is a basic light matte that can be used as a base shade or to blend out other colors or for a matte highlight.
Bright Coral Red / Matte Finish, Pressed Pigment *Not intended for use in the immediate eye area.
A true coral red matte. This actually screams tropical and Summer to me.
Smokey taupe gray / Matte Finish
To me it’s more of a cool-toned smoky brown matte, I only see hints of a gray/taupe. I’m disappointed because I thought this would have more grey tones to it, but it still might work for me. I typically find that greys and grey taupes flatter my eye color more than browns.
Golden peach with pink opal iridescent duo chrome finish / Metallic Finish
This is a light soft peachy-gold base with pink, copper and gold iridescent sparks. I would wear this on the lid or perhaps as a pop of color at the inner corner. I love the pink, copper and gold iridescence. It’s my favorite of the set.
True medium brown in a Matte finish
To me this is a medium-deep warm chocolate brown matte. This is probably a staple color for most people. I thought it had excellent pigmentation and applied easily.
Soft peachy caramel in a Satin finish
This is such a pretty soft light caramel with hints of peach. It looks like it has subtle golden shimmer. It’s a warm shade but I think it’s pretty flattering on my skintone and will bring out the blue in my eyes.
Radiant opal with pink, violet, blue and silver duo chrome in a Sheer Opal finish
This is a pink opal color with pink, violet, blue and silver shimmer. Not really a duochrome, but definitely gorgeous with lots of iridescence going on. Perfect for layering since it’s on the sheer side.
Kindness (not vegan)
Warm red brown undertone with a gold, green and blue duo chrome in a Sheer Opal finish
I light this light warm red brown. It does have gold green and blue sparks in it. I’m actually surprised by how much I love this color. I’ve got a lot of colors that have a deeper red-toned brown base, but they normally have either green, turquoise green, or turquoise blue iridescence. The fact that this one has a lighter brown base and it has gold, green and blue sparks in it makes it unique in my collection. It can be worn on its own or layered over another color.
I really like the Colour Pop matte formula and in general I find it easy to work with. However, I feel like the ‘duochrome’ shades really shine. I think the Metamorphosis set is a really cohesive, well thought out set of colors that are fun to play with. Between the two, I highly recommend the Metamorphosis set if you’re thinking of picking up a set from Colour Pop.
On a personal note, I saw my eye doctor for a checkup to see how my eyes are healing from PRK (it’s a 6 month healing process and I’m 3 months in) and they told me to back off a bit on eyeshadow, don’t line the waterline, and put drops in far more frequently. So I’m still going to be wearing eyeshadow, just not as often as I was. Right now my eyes have adjusted to me being farsighted, and I’m +2 and +3 in my eyes (really weird since I’ve never been this way before) and I’ve had some headaches. So I have to see where my eyes end up at the end of 6 months, and if I’m not happy with them, I’ll have to do another PRK surgery. This sucks because it’s about 3-4 weeks to heal enough to use a computer and 1 week of severe misery. Sooo, yeah that’s what I may be doing in September. Such a great thing to find out this week.
