I should mention that as of the time of writing this, I own all of the ColourPop 9-pan palettes…well the ones with the plastic cases. I don’t know how it is that the ColourPop Going Coconuts Palette winds-up being the first one I review but that’s how the cookie, or the eye shadow, crumbles. My last review of a ColourPop 9-pan palette didn’t go to well. Keep scrolling to see if this one gets the same scathing review.
About the ColourPop Going Coconuts Palette
The full-size Going Coconuts Palette has 0.03 oz. or 0.90 grams of product per shade, has magnetic shadow pans, comes in a plastic palette, and has a nice big sized mirror. The Going Coconuts Palette retails for $12.00 and can be purchased at ColourPop.
ColourPop claims that the Going Coconuts palette has a long wearing formula that is highly pigmented and that applies evenly. I should mention that those claims are actually just copied and pasted from one 9-pan palette to another same as the claims from one 12-pan to another.
ColourPop Going Coconuts Palette Review
From bottom to top: Shredded – a vanilla with silver pin points in a satin formula. Palm Reader – white with with a gold flip in a shimmer formula. Coolada – cool taupe brown in matte formula. Shredded makes for a good lid shade, Coolda is an amazing transition shade, while Palm Reader is an amazing inner corner or inner lid shade.
From left to right: Lovely Bunch – mid tone yellow brown in a matte formula. Coco Crush – icy pale champagne in a metallic formula. Shell Ya – neutral ginger brown in a matte formula. Coco Crush is absolutely stunning as a lid shade and you don’t have to cut the crease or wet it for it to look gorgeous. The other two are amazing matte shades.
From bottom to top (jeez photographing Cassie, get your life together): Get Crackin’ – cool brown with silver flecks in a basically matte formula. Da Coco – icy bronze with violet pin points in a shimmer formula. Nutty – deep umber in a matte formula. Okay this is a shoutout to all brands please, please, PLEASE stop putting special characters in your palette and shadow names. It’s annoying and the Interwebs, you know that lovely place where you want all your stuff shared so others will buy it especially you ColourPop since most of your stuff ISN’T in a brick and mortar store, doesn’t like them!!! Also, stop putting glitter and shimmer particles in matte shadows. When blending, the shimmer just fades away making this an absolute waste and essentially just a gimmick. Nutty, on the other hand, is everything my outer corner wanted in life and had never gotten.
Final Thoughts on the ColourPop Going Coconuts Palette
“I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts, deedly dee, there they are standing in a row. Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head. Oh I would never have to do this if Mufassa…” “What?! What did you say?!”… That is what goes through my head when I use this palette, talk about this palette, write about this palette. Zazu and Scar’s back-and-forth in the animated Lion King. That amazing scene that was cut out of that thing they call a “remake”… breathe this is about the Going Coconuts Palette NOT Lion King. This is an amazing palette. Do you have this palette in your collection already? Have you ever bought a neutral palette? Is the sky blue? Then yes, and unless you’re living on Outland, you probably have this palette. You actually probably have this palette multiple times over and that’s before including singles. However, there is just something about this palette that calls to you. I’ve watched many of a review of this palette and so many people say the same thing “I have this so many times in my collection but something about it”. They’re right. There is just something. I don’t know if it’s how the shadows are laid out or if it’s the pin points that some of the shadows have. Whatever it is it makes for one hell of a gorgeous palette that looks amazing. Oh and you can actually get multiple looks out of this palette that look different. Who’d have thought?

I don’t have this palette, but you are making me think I need it. These shades would look good with my blue eyes and red hair. Hmmm. I actually like the look of Get Cracking’ – I’ve never seen a matte with glitter flecks in it – do they really all disappear when you blend?
Lola Seicento says
That’s a very pretty warm palette!
I hear about this palette more than any other. The shade I really like in it is Da Coco but other than that I don’t think these are my colors. It amazes me how many palettes CP puts out. This is like MAC in the old days.
Cindy E Ingalls says
I do have this a hundred times over so I’ll skip it. The matte shades seem very similar to each other, are they?
They have a palette from 2 years ago that is very similar to this one.
Ooooh, what a beauty! Those are my kinds of colors! If I wasn’t on a no-buy I’d be VERY tempted to add this beauty to my collection.
