I have wanted to try ColourPop for such a long time now. So many American YouTuber’s that I used to watch would use their products and I always thought they looked beautiful and so reasonably priced as well. Recently I saw so many bloggers sharing their ColourPop hauls on their blogs or in Instagram photos and it made me want to try them even more, and then when a new collaboration was released I couldn’t resist and made my first order.
I saw that they had free shipping over $50 and I also had a voucher for $5 off so my total (without customs) was $53 for 11 products however I have an extra eyeshadow in my box so I don’t know if this was a freebie or an accident but it’s so beautiful and actually my favourite shadow out of the three.
PIN IT!I chose to just use ColourPop shipping and not a third-party company as it’s just easier. If a company offers international shipping I will always choose the company. I made my order on 7th February and it arrived yesterday so it took just 9 days to reach me from the US which is brilliant. Nothing was damaged which I was worried about and I couldn’t be happier with my products. I know I was going to get a customs charge which was £17.40, I’m over being annoyed about customs charges, it’s inevitable – the Royal Mail £8 handling fee is a joke though. So my total cost for this order was just over £60 and for 11 products I think that’s incredible and for a brand I have always wanted to try I am one happy beauty addict.
PIN IT!PIN IT!I have heard so much about their Ultra Matte Lip products so I wanted to pick up a variety of shades. I used Pinterest to find swatches on all the colours I was interested in and they are all just as beautiful as they were on there. I chose Saturday which is a beautiful deep berry shade, I put this on last night and it was stunning! I then chose two more everyday natural shades, Trap which is a grey-toned pink which is my favourite kind of shade at the moment and then Lumiere 2 which is a rosy toned pink, I love shades like this as they are so wearable.
PIN IT!PIN IT!I knew I wanted to get some eyeshadows while I was making an order so I chose Stereo, which is a burgundy shade with gold glitter and Mooning which is a dark bronze shade. High Strung is the extra shadow that was in my box and this is a beautiful dusty rose colour, so pretty for everyday wear.
When I swatched them I was expecting them to be a bit chalky and maybe kick up a lot of product but I was so wrong. These eyeshadows are so buttery and soft and just glided across my skin when I swatched them. All the shades are so pigmented but High Strung was incredible, I barely had to do anything and the swatch was so intense. For just $5 each these eyeshadows are such high quality, I’m so impressed.
I also picked up a Brow Pencil in Bangin’ Brunette just because I wanted to see just how good it was and it’s good. Although the product will probably run out quite quickly, it’s the perfect colour for my brows and so fine that you can create such natural looking brows. I was kinda hoping I would hate it because it’s going to be so difficult to keep replacing but it’s brilliant.
PIN IT!I’ve heard some great things about the Lippie Stix so I picked up three of these, Pack Pack which is a beautiful dark plum shade, Baewatch is a pretty rosy pink and Tootsi is the perfect nude shade. Although they are a matte finish they have a sheen to them and feel really hydrating on the lips.
PIN IT!Their latest collaboration was with the model Alexis Ren, I follow Alexis on Instagram and my god she’s so beautiful and I didn’t want to miss out on her products. Sadly I was a little too late as the pressed powder duo was out of stock but I did manage to grab two of the Deja Vu blotted lipsticks. I may do a giveaway with the other or I may be greedy and keep it as a back up, I havent decided yet! Deja Vu is a lovely pink nude shade and it seems to have a similar finish to the Lippie Stix.
PIN IT!I will be writing full reviews or incorporating these items into other posts at some point so keep your eyes peeled if you want to find out more about them. I’m so impressed with these products and the ColourPop brand in general, I already know I will be making another order in the future. Great quality items all reasonably priced, I can’t really say no.
