Product: ColourPop Nude Mood Palette
Claims: 9-Pan Eye Shadow Palette | Warm Neutrals | 3 Finishes | No Pressed Glitters | Cruelty Free
Size: 0.37 oz. | 9.45 grams
Although I haven’t reviewed all of them I collect the ColourPop 9-Pan Eye Shadow Palettes. I have noticed that there are two types of these, the plastic casing with the mirror and the cardboard casing with no mirror. I have opinions on this but moving on. The ColourPop Nude Mood Palette is in the latter group. Let’s see what’s on the inside of this palette shall we?
About the Nude Mood Palette
The full-size Nude Mood Palette has 0.37 oz. or 9.45 grams of product, has cardboard packaging, has no mirror, and retails for $14.00. The Nude Mood Palette can be purchased at ColourPop and Ulta.
ColourPop claims that the Nude Mood Palette has one super shock shadow which is supposed to be long-wearing, have one swipe intensity, and zero fallout. The other shadows in the Nude Mood Palette are pressed powder shadows which are supposed to apply evenly, blend smoothly, and adhere easily. The ingredients for the Nude Mood Palette are:

ColourPop Nude Mood Palette Swatches
- Bluffin’ is a pale ivory with a matte finish
- Wink Win is a soft gold with a super shock finish
- Bare to Wear is a light beige with a matte finish
This row by itself could almost be complete look. My only issue is that you really have to build up the super shock in this palette, it’s not as intense as a super shock in a pot. I’m also wondering if this one will dry out quicker than the other shades due to the formula. However, I’d rather have the super shock over pressed glitters!
- Au Naturale is a saddle brown with a matte finish
- Put on Heirs is a copper gold with a metallic finish
- Mugged Off is a burnt peach with a matte finish and gold sparkle
Au Naturale and Mugged Off are really amazing crease shades. As for Put on Heirs, if you’re going to use it as your lid shade make sure to do your eyes before your base makeup. Also, I’m going to really need ColourPop to start doing pre-release videos giving us explanations as to their naming choices…
- Lap of Lux is a golden bronze with a metallic finish
- The Cocoa is a burnt sienna with a matte finish and gold sparkle
- Moody is a chestnut brown with a matte finish
On another post I mentioned that I hated when brands include matte shadows with sparkle in them because when applying to the eye the sparkle gets lost in transit. Someone in the comments asked exactly what I meant by that. The swatch of The Cocoa explains it. You can see some of the gold sparkle where it trails off but at the other end there’s nothing. When you apply these shadows to the eyes, especially when you start blending back and forth with a brush, the glitter winds up flaking off and either staying with the brush or traveling to your face. Also, I must have a different definition of chestnut brown because Moody looks more like “sand brown” than chestnut. The Cocoa looks more chestnut brown to me…
Final Thoughts on the Nude Mood Palette
My feelings on some of the 9-pan palettes being cardboard vs plastic and mirror vs no mirror aside this is actually a great palette. I will say that if you already have the Going Coconuts palette you probably do not need this one. However, if that pressed glitter in the Going Coconuts palette has kept you from getting it then the Nude Mood is the way to go. Also, if you have a ton of warm neutral palettes you won’t need this one either.

That a pretty palette, and it swatches nicely!
This is so warm leaning that I’d have trouble wearing it. I totally see what you mean with the matte and sparkle. It seems to defeat the point of either a sparkle or a matte.
I bought a ColourPop palette just before we were told to stay in place and I haven’t gone out enough to wear it unfortunately.
Psht, I only go out to occasionally grocery shop (like once every month and a half) and go to the doctor. The rest of the time we have groceries delivered. I still will rock a full beat with a red lip around the house. With the way things are going I don’t know if we’ll be able to go anywhere enough before all our makeup expires.
Wink Wink and Put on Heirs are gorgeous – I love both these colours 😀
Wink Wink is the shade that it’s in their super shock formula. It’s a muted, creamier version of Put on Heirs. Actually the two work really well together on the lid with Put on Heirs being the back to mid section of lid shade and Wink Wink being the inner 1/3 rd portion of the lid.

I have one of the ColourPop shadow palettes that I absolutely love, and it is cardboard. I honestly don’t remember if it has a mirror or not because I almost never use a palette mirror – I need a magnifying mirror. Nude Mood is a gorgeous summer palette – it looks like a tan in a palette.
That is a great description for it! It depends on where I’m doing my makeup if I use the mirror or not. I didn’t want to travel with a mirror when I came to California for my internship last year so I did my makeup all summer in one of the little Two Faced palettes LOL
