Colourpop x Kathleen Lights Dream St Eyeshadow Palette | Review & Swatches

Hey everyone, I am so excited to finally be able to review the Colourpop x Kathleen Lights Dream St eyeshadow palette for you all! I wanted this palette for such a long time, but as you know if you live in the UK, Colourpop is harder to get your hands on here – which is so upsetting because I have adored every single thing I have tried from the brand & the price point is really good.

I’m a fan of Kathleen Lights, but aside from that this Dream St eyeshadow palette really called my name as it has a bunch of wearable shades including mattes, satins and shimmers/metallics. It also has some pops of colour which is always nice incase you want to make a more dramatic look.

The Dream St eyeshadow palette contains 12 shadows & retails for $16 (£12.86) which is a really affordable price for a palette. You don’t get a mirror in here unfortunately, but the packaging is really pretty & is made from a stury cardboard. The shade names are all written within the palette underneath each pan, as well as on the back of the packaging.

Colourpop say that these are highly pigmented pressed powder shadows that apply evenly and feel ultra-velvety and silky. They claim that this is a long wearing formula, which easily adheres to the eye, providing a soft focus effect. The shadows will blend smoothly and evenly.

The shadows from the Dream St eyeshadow palette as described by Colourpop:
shooting star: matte soft golden brown
magical: matte yellow peach
star dust: metallic true copper
twinkle: metallic true rose gold
sweet dreams: metallic soft champagne with a peachy pink flip
water bearer: matte cool teal
potion: matte vivid reddish rust
spark: matte neon red
kaleidoscope: metallic intense silvery nude
elfish: matte rich red brown
moony: satin soft baby pink
mermaid boy: metallic deep teal


As I already mentioned I love the shade range from this palette, for me these are shades I love to gravitate to on a daily basis. I haven’t reached for the 2 teal shades very often, but they are still nice additions to the palette.
I use Shooting Star & Magical a lot. They both look great just simply thrown into the crease & blended out a little.
The shimmers are lovely to put all over the lid, I particularly love Twinkle.
The deep brown shade, Elfish is the nicest, smoothest shadow ever. It is so buttery & never looks muddy.
The only shade which is slightly harder to work with is Potion – as you may be able to tell from the swatch, it can become patchy. However, if you add bit by bit, you can definitely make it look nice.

I love the quality of the shadows, which is what I expect from Colourpop – I have always had a great experience with their shadows. They blend out so so easily & look seamless & smooth. I haven’t noticed much fall out when using the Dream St palette either.

Overall I would hugely recommend this one if you like the look of the shades. I reach for it a lot & love having it in my collection.

    Ooo that looks like a beautiful palette! I wish I had any sort of makeup skills to utilize it lol One thing I’ve never been good at is makeup/beauty things – but I love looking at others!

    I really like that dark teal color. It’s unique and bold without being too much!

    I’ve never tried anything by colour pop but wow! I love how the shades look and now I really want to try them and see if I can experiment and actually learn how to do my eye make-up. Thank you for a great recommendation and I will keep my eye out for.

    I don’t know if I could pull of the matte neon red but I love the rest of the colours!

      It is rather bright – but I like it for the lower lash line! X

    Such a pretty palette. I like that there’s a lot of neutral, wearable shades in here as well as pops of colour. I haven’t tried any Colourpop shadows yet but I’ve heard nothing but incredible things about them so I’m not surprised at the quality. Love them as a brand, so affordable and always create amazing products x

    I wasn’t really attracted to this palette when I first saw it but your swatches and review make me question that decision lol. Loved reading it!

      Aw really, I guess if the shades aren’t up your street there isn’t a point in buying it! I love it though x

    That palette is beautiful and the swatches look so pigmented! I definitely need to get my hands on this asap xx

    This is one of the pretties palettes in my opinion. You can do a lot with it, but it’s still basic enough for daily wear. Also the packing is so cute. Lovely review. xx

      Yes I so agree – it works for every occasion x
