I was super excited when I heard that Dani (CoffeeBreakWithDani) was collabing once again with Colourpop Cosmetics and creating her very own eye shadow quad! If you don’t know who CoffeeBreakWithDani is, you can easily find her awesome beauty channel up on YouTube where she posts awesome makeup tutorials and reviews. I have been a fan of her channel for quite some time now – this lady truly knows her stuff when it comes to beauty and makeup! Not to mention, she is one of the nicest and supporting girls out there! Her beautiful eye shadow quad is called “Metamorphosis” which means “transformation”. To quote Dani herself on a post about her shadows from her Instagram (@coffeebreakwithdani) she writes:
“Metamorphosis symbolizes change. Change within ourselves, and perhaps being the change we want to see in the world. With this quad comes the theme of change, or “transformation”. Two of these shadows are sheer duo chrome transformers designed to create an infinite amount of colors.” – Dani
I think the whole theme of her shadows is beautiful and positive and the quality and overall view of the shadows really represents that. You can buy her quad online from Colourpop’s website. The quad retails for $20.00 USD which is a great price considering you are getting four full-sized shadows which would retail for $5 each.
I love the outer packaging of the product – she used a beautiful mint green shade (mint is her favorite color) with golden accents/writing. There is a butterfly image on the cover which represents the “metamorphosis” which they constantly go through – and which her quad is based upon.
The shadows come packaged in a little quad but like all of the Colourpop shadows, they are each individually packaged.
If you’re not familiar with Colourpop’s shadows, they are not like your regular eye shadows by no means. They aren’t quite a cream and they aren’t quite a powder. They have a slight “mousse” or “play-dough” texture if that makes sense. They pack a ton of pigment and once the shadow sets, it will not budge. That’s what I love about these shadows – you get the maximum amount of pigment without having to use any sprays or adhesives and the shadows stay put! They’re truly one of my favorite formulas out there.
Kindness- (Warm red brown undertone with a gold, green and blue duo chrome in a Sheer Opal finish)
Hope- (Radiant opal with pink, violet, blue and silver duo chrome in a Sheer Opal finish)
Strength- (Soft peachy caramel in a Satin finish)
Bravery- (True medium brown in a Matte finish)
As you can see, the two duo chrome shades “Kindness” and “Hope” carry within them many different colors. They are truly “transformative” shades which relate to the whole “metamorphosis” theme that Dani was going for. We then have “Strength” and “Bravery” which are beautiful, matte brown & caramel staple shades. Overall I think she did a fantastic job on each shadow and on the quad as a whole. Each shade can stand on its own while at the same time they all compliment each other beautifully. I can already foresee many eye shadow looks I will be doing with them! If you haven’t tried any Colourpop shadows and are interested, I would definitely recommend trying out this quad by CoffeeBreakWithDani. Overall, great job Dani x Colourpop! ❤
