Semi-Precious Palette by Colourpop

Hello everyone! I’m back today after a little hiatus in blogging.  I guess I got a tad bit unmotivated for a while there, but I guess that happens!

Today I have the Semi-Precious eyeshadow palette from Colourpop, which I received in April’s BoxyCharm.  Sadly, this is going to be my last BoxyCharm for a while as I am trying to save up for a house!


This palette is straight shimmers.  I usually stray away from all shimmer palettes, but since it was included with my subscription, I think I can find a way to incorporate them into my looks.  Each shadow from this palette is very creamy and very easy to apply.  I like to prep my eyelids and then not set the area that I’m planning to apply the shimmery shadows.  I think by not setting the primer, the shadow adheres better and pops!



These are swatches from the top row of the palette, from left to right.

  • Celestial:  a warm champagne ivory
  • Beam Me Up:  icy pale blue
  • Easy Go:  vibrant cranberry
  • Up & Atom: golden amber


Bottom row:

  • West Star:  rich copper brown
  • Bashful:  soft icy green
  • Upon A Star:  cool rose
  • The Game:  antique gold

Overall, I am happy I have this palette now in my collection.  I have so much eyeshadow now that I get overwhelmed lol!

This palette costs $18 on the Colourpop website.

Which palette did you guys get this month from Boxy?
