As an avid Star Wars fan, I was so excited to see Colourpop come out with a collection based on the TV show “The Mandalorian”. Not only is the packaging super cute and fun, but I love the way they named the collection as well. Stick around to learn more about The Mandalorian palette in my ColourPop The Mandalorian palette review.
You can find this eyeshadow palette on ColourPop’s website by clicking here. It typically retails for $16, but is currently on sale for only $12.
Beskar Steel is a glittery silver shade that looks quite bright in swatches but applied on the eye, I noticed that it wasn’t quite as impactful. I had to apply this shade three times to get it to really show on my lids. I honestly wasn’t a fan of this one.
Nevarro Sand is a matte yellow/orange shade that is quite powdery. I noticed that this one could tend to have a lot of fallout if you aren’t careful with it. I liked using this one lightly as a transition shade.
Bantha Tracks is a light, warm peach shade that I loved as a transition shade. This one is a tad powdery, but not as much as the other shades, so I felt like I got good coverage in the crease. I overall enjoyed this shadow.
Imperial Credit is a pewter shimmer shade that performed pretty well on the lids. I liked this on all over the lids but did notice the formula was slightly dry, so I did leave some fallout and required a few applications to pack a punch.
Clan of Two
Clan of Two is a really interesting shade. It has a red-brown base to it, but a blue/green shifting shimmer. I would call this one a duo-chrome. This is one of the better performing eyeshadows in the palette and reminds me of a typical ColourPop formula.
Tattooine Glimmer is a bronze metallic shade that I swept over the lids. I didn’t love this eyeshadow because it generated a TON of fallout and it took me forever to get it to show up how I wanted to. I think when you put in such a basic shade as a bronze metallic, I’m going to have high standards because they are literally everywhere.
Mythosaur is a matte taupe that I thought performed pretty well. I applied this in the crease and found it to be pretty pigmented and blendable. Overall, I think this one is a decent shade.
This Is The Way
This Is The Way is a taupe that lends toward a grey with some green undertones. I definitely noticed that when paired next to a green shade from a different palette, it definitely brought out some of the green to it. I didn’t like this shadow too much because I found it difficult to blend. Its just a little on the stiff side.
Creed is a dark brown with a matte base and covered in gold glitter. I actually have split feelings on this shade because it was so pigmented and blendable, but it sure did leave some fallout. It’s just a really powdery shade. Again, this one looks like one of the worse performing shades based on the swatch, but it ended up being one I liked quite a bit.
This palette wasn’t quite as pigmented as I’m used to ColourPop eyeshadows being. For quite a few of the shades, I had to really layer the color over and over again to get the colors to perform.
I also noticed that these eyeshadows are really powdery, which left me with a ton of fallout. That’s probably why they were lacking in normal pigmentation.
Like I say in every post, swatches can be misleading and that was definitely the case for this palette. Most of these swatched really nicely, so I was excited to try the palette, but none of them really performed that well on the eyes.
I gave this one 3.5/5 hearts because I was able to make some decent looks with the palette, but I did have to work with them a lot more than I was used to for Colourpop shadows.
For anyone who’s read my blog, you know how I like Colourpop’s packaging. Most of their palettes are fairly cheap, but look cute, and have sturdy cardboard packaging.
That usually earns them 4 hearts. But this one. It has a mirror!! Of all the Colourpop palettes I own, this was the first to come with a mirror and I was so stocked about it.
Not only that, it’s super cute. I love The Mandalorian and think they did a great job on the packaging.
As I said earlier in my post, The Mandalorian palette has really powdery eyeshadows. This means they blended fairly well. However, an eyeshadow can become too powdery and blend away.
This one didn’t do that to me unless I was really blending, so I gave it 4/5 hearts. Just be careful not to blend too heavily or too much in one area and you should be good to go.
Like I keep saying in this post, I’m just used to Colourpop’s shadows performing better than these ones did.
Ok, I’m going to say it again. These are really powdery. This means that they also didn’t stay on the lid as long as I’d like. I just noticed after a few hours, there was some fading. Was it terrible? No. There are just better eyeshadows out there.
Looks I Created with The Mandalorian Palette
I created this look by applying Bantha Tracks as a transition color. Then, I placed This Is The Way in the crease. Creed went in the outer V and I topped off the look with Imperial Credit all over the lid. I feel like my lighting kind of washed out how beautiful Imperial Credit actually looks on the eye. It is a lot more eye-catching than in the photos.
That’s it for my review of the Colourpop The Mandalorian Palette.
I think this one is a good palette for collectors and Mandalorian fans in general. But if you’re not a fan of the show and want some eyeshadows that perform well, this one might be a pass for you.
Another thing I didn’t get to mention earlier in the post is that this eyeshadow came to me in a dirty palette. It’s almost as if the shadows weren’t all the way pressed and some got all over it. For a collector’s palette, I’d assume it would come absolutely perfect in case I didn’t plan to use it, but to display it instead.
I did want to recommend a similar, cool-toned look that performs overall better, but is still in this price range, I’d recommend Colourpop’s Of Quartz eyeshadow palette. You can click here to read my review of it.
Until next time!
