I know, I know. I'm approximately 8 million years late on this, but since Colourpop has an excellent sale going on this Labor Day weekend and the Mondays in Malibu collection is still in stock, here we are!
If you don't know, Colourpop is offering $5 off of $40, $10 off of $60, or $20 off of $100 through today (Monday, 7 September). PLUS, the site will let you use these discounts (which don't require a code) along with the code THANKSBABE for an additional $5 off. And, as always, they offer free shipping within the U.S. for orders over $30.
I placed an order on Friday and got the CoffeeBreakwithDani Metamorphosis palette and a few other shadows that I've been wanting for a while. My only regret is that the Forever Freshman collection isn't out yet, because I am in love with a few of those shades and will be ordering as soon as it is released. Check out Young, Wild, & Polished's review & swatches of the two new (as of now, unreleased) Fall 2015 collections (Forever Freshman and Back to Cool).
|L to R: Gecko, Mirage, Snakebite, Sand Swoon, Prickly Pear, Hot Tomale|
I originally lusted after this collection solely due to the shade Prickly Pear. In addition to having a fantastic name (cacti are my spirit animal), I fell head over heels for Prickly Pear's warm plum tones and gorgeous gold and pink glitter.

Snakebite and Mirage are both beautiful neutral shadows that can be worn all over the lid with Hot Tamale (or another deep matte brown) in the crease. It's such an easy look to slap on and get out the door. If you are short of ideas on how to combine these shadows, there are approximately 1.2 million YouTube tutorials on this collection to help you get some inspiration.
In terms of Colourpop shadows, I'm normally drawn more to their non-matte shades, primarily because I haven't found a great brush to use with their mattes in the crease. If you have any suggestions, please let me know below. But until then, I'll probably continue to predominantly use their glitter/metallic/pearlized/opalescent/satin shades. But, lesbehonest, all of the Colourpop shades are beautiful.
