I recently hauled a few City Color Beauty products that I had my eye on for quite some time and thought to do a quick first impression on their Poolside Palette in case any of you were in the market for an affordable, colorful palette!

City Color describes the Poolside Palette as:
New for Summer 2016, the City Color Poolside Palette is your go-to for fun, fresh and on-trend looks! Complete with 12 seasonal inspired shades like Suntan, Bikini and Seafoam, this palette will allow you to create neutral or bold looks all summer long. Features a mix of shimmer, satin and matte shades in limited-edition artwork packaging.

This palette costs $15.99 and is available to US and Canadian residents. If you are an international shopper, you can contact City Color and they will let you know if there are any possible distributors near you so you can enjoy their products as well!
Besides their affordable prices and high quality, City Color offers free shipping to US residents on orders $25+ – how awesome is that?!

The shades I was instantly attracted to were Reef, Poolside, Seafoam, and Chillin’. The other shades are just as stunning but I don’t have many shades like the ones I mentioned in my collection. 
Let’s take a look at swatches!
As always, my swatches are without primer. The satins and shimmers have a great amount of pigment and apply smoothly and blend easily. Some of the mattes have a great formula but there are a few that will require fix plus to provide more pigment. Bikini, Topless, and Voyage are the shades I had trouble with but like I said, I’m sure a some primer and fix plus will help out!
Apart from the few mattes, I’m really happy with this palette! There aren’t many affordable eyeshadow palettes that I’m ever content with but City Color definitely has some that I love! Apart from this palette, I’ve purchased the Harvest Moon, Figtastic, Spice Me Up, and Intense Shine palettes! You can check out my swatches and reviews on them here!
