Blink and you would have missed the Coloured Raine Queen Of Hearts Palette on it’s first outing in the UK back in December. After it’s initial US launch in November, it was available to us in the UK/ Ireland and everywhere else they ship to at Beautybay* for a split second, until it was pulled from sale (not before I, along with a few lucky others managed to snag it though!). Exact reason still unknown, although I believe Coloured Raine had said it wasn’t an issue on their end, but who knows…it was still up on the site for a few days, but basically stating that they were unable to ship it to any location. I’d already blogged about it, you can read that OG post here and it was just really frustrating to see that a lot of you then couldn’t get hold of it! You guys in the US too…it was limited edition and sold out so fast!
If you don’t know already (I’m presuming you’ve read the title of this either way which should have given you the idea) Coloured Raine’s coveted Queen Of Hearts palette…it’s coming back, it’ll be permanent AND also available outside of the US! The perfect example of a brand actually listening to it’s customers, kudos to you Coloured Raine! Here’s all you need to know…
➕ Due to demand, it has been available as pre order already…but will be available on the Coloured Raine website TODAY, Friday 18th August at 9am PST (check your local time zones, but this works out at 5pm BST for UK/ Ireland) and they do ship Internationally. It’ll retail for $50.
➕ The QOH palette IS also coming to Beautybay (who ship globally!)…no specific dates as yet, but as usual keep peeping their social accounts and you can sign up for the waitlist here. Expected to be around £45/ €50.
It’s no secret that I’m I’m big fan of Coloured Raine’s super pigmented shadows (they’re also available individually) and the QOH remains one of my all time favourite eyeshadow palettes! I have a full review here if you want to check it out. Here’s a few QOH at a glance need to knows and a closer look at the shades…
➕ 12 pan palette, consisting of 1 pearl, 6 matte and 5 foil finish richly pigmented shadows.
➕ Cruelty Free. *Note – not fully Vegan (the shade Ladyship contains Carmine).
➕ Crown – pearlescent white with gold undertone (reminds me a lot of KVD Thunderstruck!)
➕ Royal Highness – metallic purple toned taupe
➕ Your Majesty – rich metallic copper with gold reflect
➕ Princess – matte blushed pink
➕ Empress – vibrant matte orange
➕ Queen Mother – metallic plum with lavender
➕ Heir – matte peach
➕ Royal Prerogative – matte terracotta
➕ Noblewoman – metallic burgundy with purple undertone (unsurprisingly my favourite shade!)
➕ Ladyship – matte vivid purple
➕ Duchess – matte milk chocolate brown
➕ Dethrone – metallic sparkling espresso with gold reflect
The Coloured Raine Queen Of Hearts palette is an absolute beaut! Such a versatile pigment packed palette that’ll take you day through night. Great mixture of textures, I love the half and half matte/ metallic ratio! Impressive colour payoff, minimal to no fall out and wears true to colour until you take it off. Obviously it’s going to be permanent (yasss!) so if you can’t/ don’t want to get this right now it’s not so much of a worry, but if pick up one makeup item this month…make it this, your eyeballs will thank you for it!
Ps. I know a lot of you ask me about shade alternatives/ dupes…let me know if you want me to do a dupe list for this/ other palettes or any specific shades too!
