I’ve finally photographed my haul from Colourpop I did a couple of months ago and now i’ve had a good play around with the products can safely say, they are awesome and you need them in your life. The price point is amazing with all the lip products and eyeshadows priced at $5USD and the cheek products priced at $8USD. The only thing you will find is that international shipping is a little on the pricey side. I just checked my order notes and the shipping was $28.30USD for 17 products (I did an order with Ange). The products only took 2 weeks to arrive as well which I think is pretty quick. I am definitely ordering again 🙂
I’ll start with the non-lip products because the lip products make up the majority of my haul.
Colourpop Super Shock Eyeshadow in Bandit This is a beautiful rusty brown colour and is a matte eyeshadow. I’ve been applying this with a synthetic brush in my crease and it makes my blue eyes pop. Colourpop do suggest using your fingers with their formula but I find a brush works fine. The texture of these eyeshadows is a little strange as they feel sort of bouncy & creamy yet they finish on the eye in a matte powder finish. I really want to order more of the shadows in my next haul.
Colourpop Super Shock Cheeks in Between The Sheets The cheek products were fairly new when I made my order so I knew I had to try one. I’ve had the Tarte Amazonian Cheek Colour in Exposed on my wishlist for awhile now and thought i’d try and find a dupe of that. A few websites said Between The Sheets is a good alternative. I don’t own Exposed so I can’t compare them side by side but I love this neutral beige-y pink shade and have worn it almost everyday since I got it, not even kidding.
So the lip products is where I really went a little crazy, my initial list was much much longer but I thought I would cut it down a bit just in case I wasn’t a huge fan of the products. Jury is in and i’m a huge fan! I love the formula’s of both the Lippie Pencils and the Lippie Stix. The Lippie Stix come in a few different types of finishes but I got 4 mattes and 1 satin (which look pretty matte to me anyway). I’ll just do a brief rundown of what I got and their shade descriptions, followed by swatches on the lips.
Colourpop Cosmetics Lippie Stix in Tootsi (Matte) – This is one of those newer colours coming in that are kind of grey/beige toned. Honestly, I don’t really think this looks very good on me but I’m glad I tried it out anyway. P.S. I spelt Tootsi wrong in my pictures, I should have consulted the website first. Oops!
Colourpop Cosmetics Lippie Stix in Lumiere (Matte) This is my most worn shade from my haul, it’s very wearable everyday and the colour suits me well. It’s a dusty mauvey pink shade that was a collaboration between Colourpop and KathleenLights. I’m definitely getting the matching lip pencil for this in my next order.
Colourpop Cosmetics Lippie Stix in Flawless (Satin) As you will see with the swatches above, I also have this in the Lippie Pencil which is an exact match for the lip colour. Flawless is described as a deep red violet and I think that’s pretty spot on. It’s quite a bright purple shade that I think just lights up the face. Love it!
Colourpop Cosmetics Lippie Stix in LBB (Matte) Ahhhhh this is my favourite from the bunch, and was funnily enough the one I thought would be least interesting. I think this shade is a good dupe for Rebel by MAC, it’s certainly within that shade family. Kind of a deep raspberry shade with a teeny hint of purple. This one is also a stayer! I can wear this for hours without the need for a touch up. It’s very similar to Flawless but does lean more on the red side.
Colourpop Cosmetics Lippie Stix in Bichette (Matte) Of course I had to add a red to my haul, I decided to go with a darker red shade since we were coming into Winter here I thought i’d get more wear. Plus, I already own so many brighter red shades (I may get one in my next order though). I also got the matching Lippie Pencil with this one because I figured I could use it with some of the reds I already own. Bichette is a stunning deep red and honestly you just need to see it. I wore this out with the Lippie Pencil to my hens night and it didn’t budge!
That’s the haul! Now i’m starting to look at the Colourpop Cosmetics website and making a new wishlist… very dangerous!
Have you ordered from Colourpop before or do you think you may?
Also, if you’re interested I did a video on the haul and showed the Lippie Stix being applied if you wanted to have a look.
