The colours are light and not something I’d wear on a regular basis as I have olive undertones. It’s a very cute palette with a nice range of pinks for those who are into this kind of pastel range. However, there are more neutrals than pinks which does make it good for everyday use. The inclusion of the purples is a good idea as it gives a nice range of depths, although it could stand to have a deeper pink too.
The colours swatch well and go on the eye well too. They’re nicely pigmented and show well on the eye. I’ve had a little fallout but it’s not been significant.

If you’re into lighter pinks, this is a good one for you.

The Cotton Candy palette is £9 from Revolution Beauty or Superdrug.
