Colour Pop Haul And First Impressions

Over the past few months, I couldn’t go very long without yet another Colour Pop haul popping up and everyone going on about how to get the products shipped to the UK. Part of what drew me to the brand initially was the price which is amazingly cheap, but with the addition of paying for a forwarding service and then import tax I didn’t feel it would work out quite as cheap. So when I was in New York last month I asked the hotel if I could get post delivered there and when they said yes I placed an order so it was ready and waiting when I touched down in New York.

While I knew I needed to try some of their eyeshadows I had no idea of what shades. With so many haul posts online there are so many swatches my mind went into overdrive. I settled on:

Lala which is a metallica rose gold colour/ Mixed Tape which is a pearl mid-tone grey colour/ Sequin which is a glittery copper shade/ DGAF which is a medium-tone rusty brown

I absolutely love the eyeshadows as they have great pigmentation and the shimmer within them is so pretty, and with so many neutral and nude palettes they’re certainly something my makeup collection was lacking. They aren’t quite as powdery as I had expected, being almost part cream, part powder so I found the best way to apply these was with my finger, but when it’s on they’re pretty easy to blend. Lala is one of my favourite shades but they are all pretty glittery shades which have zero fall out.

Next up I knew I needed to try some of their lip products. As a huge liquid lipstick fan I ordered four shades (although I could have easily ordered more), and then I chose three lippie stix’s as I had heard great things from other bloggers about them and there were some lovely shades. I opted for:

Liquid Lipsticks

Tulle which is a dark mauve burgondy colour/ Avenue which is deep red colour/ Midi which is a really light soft beige/ Lumiere 2 which is a mauve pink

Midi is actually a little lighter than my lip colours but as long as I have a nice pop of colour on my cheeks it really works. Out of the bunch though Lumiere 2 is my favourite shade because it is a great everyday wearable shade and it isn’t too pink to look barbie like.

Brink which is dusty taupe colour/ Tootsi which is a grey taupe colour / Lumiere which is a dusty mauve pink colour

I am head over heels with the formula of the liquid lipsticks, they glide on really easily yet dry on the lip within less than a minute so there’s no worry about ruining it. It is really lightweight as opposed to a lot of similar cheaper options I’ve tried from UK drugstores and I could easily get 5-7 hours wear time out of them. The look of the packaging is super similar to the Anatasia Beverley Hills liquid lipsticks but I guess there’s only so much you can do with a tube. I haven’t tried the lippie stix too much so I’ll need to report back on those.

The final items I popped in was a blush in shade Between the Sheets which is a mid-tone pinky beige and fortunately not too bright/ dark for my skin tone. And of course, a highlighter dropped into my basket in shade Dream Catcher which is a peachy gold. I couldn’t make an order and not try a little something for my cheeks and I am really glad I picked these shades. The blush is more of a powdery formula than the eyeshadows but had very little fall out when you pop a brush into it. The highlighter though is an incredibly sparkly pigmented sheen of a colour which I was a little apprehensive about using when I swatched it but a little goes a long way.

With Colour Pop announcing international shipping later this year I am sure I will be ordering more from their collection when this happens. Now just to choose what to get!

Have you tried anything from the Colour Pop collection?

    These colors are awesome! I’m super excited to try the liquid lipsticks! Not a huge eyeshadow wearer but I might have to give some of those a try – I really like the subtle metallic flair they have! Thanks for sharing!

    Not a brand I’ve heard of before but I do love a liquid lipstick myself. My favourite Lancome ones have been discontinued though – utter madness if you ask me 😉

    I have to say you’ve intrigued me with the lip color. I’ve never even tried a liquid lipstick, so that’s kind of calling to me!
