Hey everyone! Lately, I've been obsessive over makeup. I usually just stick with brands I can find at Ulta and drug store brands but decided to give Colourpop a try since I see them all over the internets.
I placed my first order during their Last Call sale, so some of these aren't available anymore. Which is ashame, because now I wish I had ordered multiples of a few.
I was kind of overwhelmed with how many options Colourpop offers and how many "last call" items there were. I didn't know if I should catch em all or play it safe. The responsible person in me won and I played it safe.
Here are swatches of the one highlight I bought and five eyeshadows.
From top to bottom:
Flexitarian: Highlight. White champagne in a pearlized finish. Wowza. This is ah-mazing. It looks great on my fair skin. I love this and I'm very glad this wasn't part of the last call sale.
Bites: Eye Shadow. A true white in a matte finish. This was part of the last call sale and no longer available. I love the formula on this one and all the shadows.
Glow: Eye Shadow. Creamy vanilla in a matte finish. Love this one. It has a great off white shade. This was not part of the last call sale.
Cop a Feel: Eye Shadow. Cool toned creamy beige. This one was pretty close to glow but had a bit more of a pinky/beige to it. This was part of the last call sale and is sold out.
Hanky Panky: Eye Shadow. A soft cool toned taupe. I'll be using this one a lot. This was not part of the last call sale.
Shop: Eye Shadow. Rusty coral in a matte finish. Oh my gosh. How great will this be for fall? I also really love these type of shades with my blue eyes. Love! This was not part of the last call sale.
Overall, I love all the formulas and shades I picked. I played it safe with my first order by selecting mostly neutral shades, but I'm really happy I did, I feel I'm building a great foundation to my Colourpop eyeshadow collection.
The lip shades I picked
From top to bottom:
Bestie: mid-tone pink nude in a crème finish. I really love this one for an everyday look. Like, if I'm running to the grocery or school pick up.
BFF: Light peachy nude lip pencil. This is a great nude lip pencil for me.
Contempo: mid-tone dusty rose lip pencil. I also love this shade. The lip pencils glide on so well. I'm pretty obsessed with these.
Clueless: dusty mauve in a matte finish. I cannot begin to describe how much I love this. I have worn it everyday since I received these in the mail. At first, I was skeptical of whether I would like these mattes or not. But, I absolutely do. I'm so happy I went outside of my comfort zone to try a matte lip.
Overall, I'm very pleased with all of my lip selections. The pencils glide on very well. The gloss is such a great shade. The matte lip is really great. One tip I do have when using this matte, try making my DIY Hand Scrub and exfoliating your lips before applying the matte shade.
I'm so happy with my Colourpop purchase that I placed two more orders! I cannot wait to receive them and I'm pretty sure this is my new obsession!
