I am so late to the party with my review of this stunning palette – but better late than never right? I placed a cheeky ColourPop order last year in December when they were offering a massive 50% off their palettes. Of course I had to pick up this stunner of a palette as I love my shimmer and glow.
I ordered my palette on the 10th December and due to the rush and sales, it took a little around 2 weeks for my order to arrive, and I paid $9.99 shipping (and also got stung by customs charges) I really wanted this palette as I was desperate for it, and so the shipping cost did not really deter me.
Golden State of Mind is the perfect party palette – it looks and feels so magical on and it’s not difficult to see why. I had read some mixed reviews on this – people had complained about a lot of fall out and the colour transfer not being so great. I wear a lot of shimmer shades, so I know how to work with them and honestly – using your fingers to apply this type of formula is proabably best.
This really isn’t your average palette to create cut crease looks with – this palette works well as a all over lid colour, inner corner highlight and under eye glam. It contains 15 shades which are all full on shimmer and shine.
I love the ColourPop pressed eyeshadow formula because it’s creamy, pigmented and easy to work with. This really translates onto this palette too and I just love the colour selection so much.
The palette is housed in paper card packaging and it does not come with a mirror – this may be a make or break situation for some people, but it really didn’t bother me. The only thing that did was the £12 customs fee I had to pay at the post office.
Forgive me for such a picture heavy post, but I really wanted to try and capture the shift in colours in the pans – they really are stunning and they sparkle brightly when they catch the light.

The top two rows are probably my favourite and I’ve really been enjoying wearing this on the weekends. The colours apply so effortlessly across my lid and my favourite tip is to take a sharp defined pencil brush and use it to highlight my inner corner eye. Pay The Piper from the first row is perfect to capture this look with.
I’m really pleased with my purchase and just know it won’t be long until I start adding more to my collection.
