For all the high end makeup I have stashed away in my drawers, it’s amazing how I keep coming back to Colourpop. I can’t get over what a doggone bargain it is for the quality. I thought I had every conceivable product I could need from the brand, but that I realized that that was ridiculous! I have a deep seeded unhealthy addiction that I need to uphold. Nah, but seriously, I was watching Kathleen Lights’ recent Colourpop favourites video and there were some beauties that caught me eye. So, you guessed it, I placed an order.

The first thing I went for were some shadows because I already know that they’re phenomenal quality. Just in case anyone missed the memo, they’re super long wearing, because they set down and the pigmentation is bomb. It’s worth noting however, that they’re not the easiest to blend, so I tend to use traditional powder formulas as transition shades. I went for a rose gold/red theme with my choices (with the exception of Rex) because… you know… that shit be on trend. Catch me outside, how bout dat.

L-R: Cat Nap, Rex, Muse, Central Perk, Weenie, Paradox

I also ordered a few different eye liners, Overboard, DTLA, Brew-HaHa and Exit. People absolutely rave about the formula. I have to say that I wasn’t blown away by them. I didn’t feel like they were easy to blend or smudge out, nor were they particularly long lasting on the waterline. The colour range is awesome though. They carry some lovely, unique shades.

Finally I grabbed one of the Lippie Stix in Chateau. I haven’t tried that yet, but I have tried the Ultra Satin Lip in Littlestitious. What is with that name? What reference am I missing here? The formula is grand. It’s reminiscent of the new Marc Jacobs liquid lips – a comfortable, pigmented, satin finish with great wear time. I was way more into the satin formula than the matte version. Has anyone tried the matte formula that liked it? I’d be curious to know if it depends on the shades or if they’re all super dry and flaky.

    I’ve just made my first ColourPop order and I can’t wait to try out my new goodies! These swatches look amazing xx

    • Yaaaaaassssss, tell me what you think! What did you order? A little bit of everything?

      • Only just seen this reply! I ordered two eyeshadows, an eyebrow pencil and about 6 lip products! Love them all! Amazing brand.

        • Yaassss. I’m glad you liked everything too! I just did another cheeky little order. :3

  • Those eyeshadows look gorgeous – I really need more

  • colourpop’s eyeshadows are amazing! i don’t have them but i like watching kathleen talks about her love for colourpop. gotta love the rose gold/red theme that you chose 😀

    • haha thanks. It’s funny because I never would have pictured myself being into Kathleen when I first found her, but the more you watch her, the more she draws you in. She’s just honest and sweet and sassy and fun. She’s a total champ – one of my favourite gals on Youtube.

  • Oh my days they look SO DREAMY!! I totally want to get my hands on these now

    • You should. I think it’s worth at least trying out bits of the brand and seeing what you think. And I wouldn’t say that about every brand.

    I seriously need to try their lip products, they sound so comfortable to wear! That’s a shame to hear about their shadows though, I do like the shades!

    I love Colourpop’s lip products! Their lipsticks are so creamy and feel moisturizing, while the liquid lips stay matte. I can’t believe how cheap they are; I’ll probably make another order soon based on your recommendations 😉

    • Worth it. I’d definitely be interested to try their new powder shadows too. I’ve been hearing good things, but we shall see.

  • So pretty!! I only bought my first Colourpop products at the end of last year! I was really hooked when I first got them. But, now I’ve kind of neglected them a bit! Thanks for the reminder to give them another shot haha x

    • Ah yes. I know the feeling. Time to shop the stash!

  • Colourpop is very hit and miss for me but I enjoy the excitement of making an order! I tried the Ultra mattes in my last order and never agaaaaaain. The ultra satins however, I definitely want to pick up more of! I got Weenie in my last order too – I love it! Such a pretty rose gold. I wasn’t really impressed with the liners either. I got Zulu which is the gorgeous turquoise and it was so dry and crumbly, the whole stick even fell out and broke in half…
