I was able to get some of the Colourpop x Animal Crossing makeup that they released last month. With scalping becoming a huge problem, you never know if you're gonna be lucky to get some things. Like when the same company released a Sailor Moon set. I was more upset at the scalpers than the site crashing. But that's a rant for another post...
Also disclaimer: I don't claim to be a beauty guru or anything like that so this is not a professional review. This is just my own personal thoughts to the best of my ability. My swatches are not perfect but they are my own.
I actually didn't want to get the entire collection. I am still pretty new to the games and haven't played much on the latest entry but I fell in love with a lot of the villagers. So I only had my eyes on just 3 of the products in this collection. I got two eyeshadow palettes and one of the blushes. I've been dying for a coral color blush since my color palette is definitely going more towards bright and citrus-kind of colors!
I managed to get these three items! Aren't they adorable? I love the packaging and detail for each.
Based on the owl siblings Blathers and Celeste, this is a neutral mini palette with really pretty warm colors. The colors and names are so cute and do a great job representing each owl. Even the packaging has amazing and adorable detail with star pieces and fossils! I love how well pigmented they are except for "Meteor Shower"...
Even making a proper swatch on my arm took a decent effort. It acts more like a glitter top rather than a glitter shadow like "All Aflutter". So I will have to either find a good packing brush or use my fingertip. But it's still a really cute palette! Celeste is actually my favorite~ Even though she technically isn't a villager.
Five Star Island
Isabelle's adorable and colorful palette. I haven't played enough of the game series yet to know what the butterflies have to do with her but it does do a great job showing how cheerful she is! The colors represent her so well and I adore "Isabelle" and "Island Tune".
This time all four colors showed up very well in the swatches I did even for my novice self. I just wish that "Meteor Shower" was as amazing as "Isabelle". But I'm just hoping that it was just the top layer being like that.
I love Colourpop's blushes as most of them are buildable. So if I want more of a flushed look, all I have to do is add a bit more. I'm really happy that even with a few passes, it did show up more on my skin.
My other favorite part about these blushes is that they are actual flowers from the game~ Both which are also pressed into the pigment. I got the orange windflower! Did you notice on the packaging of each you can see different villagers? Super nice touch!

If it weren't for the fact that Celeste and Isabelle are in this collection, I probably would not have gotten anything. But another plus is that these are perfect for some bright gal looks. I cannot wait to incorporate these into a future co*de! Maybe I could also do a Celeste-inspired look!
I hope you liked this review! Please let me know in the comments if you would like to see more in the future like this! Also tell me if you would like to see some looks with these palettes~
