Colourpop collaborated once again with Youtuber Kathleenlights and released the Dream St palette along with some lip products. I've previously purchased Kathleenlights collabs with brands and loved them. I was excited to pick up the palette and happy to support Kathleen. The Dream St palette is a warmed toned palette with nice pops of color that retails for 16$. Like other Colourpop palettes, this has 16 shades. It has mattes, shimmers and satins. This palette was so hyped up that I couldn't wait to give it a try. The mattes are wonderful and blend really well. The shimmers do take a bit of work which I feel like no one really talks about. I really have to build them up, spray them or apply with my finger otherwise they don't show up that much. If you watch Youtubers applying the shimmers, they always spray them.

I really like that this palette can give you a neutral look or you can amp it up with the other shades. Water Bearer and Spark are really fun shades to try. Stardust and Twinkle do look similar in the pan but they do look different on the eye. The shadows are on the soft side, and you will get kick up. I've noticed this will all my Colourpop palettes. It doesn't really bother me, but I know some others don't like it. They shades last all day on my eyes, and don't have any issues with fading. Again, I do prefer the mattes over the shimmers in this palette. If you're familiar with Colourpop's other pressed eyeshadow palettes, I will say the shimmers perform different. I'm not a fan of using my fingers to apply lid shades, I prefer using a brush and that did leave me a bit disappointed. Overall, I do like the palette. I like the color selection and will continue to use it but I don't think it is my favorite Colourpop palette.
