Colourpop Lipsticks

Ever since Colourpop announced international shipping I got a little crazy in my mind thinking how much I could order, but I was actually pretty horrified at the massive shipping charges (considering the price of the products) knowing there would then be an additional customs fee so I was put on. Recently though I did a mail forwarding order so managed to nab a few items from Colourpop. (More on my mail forwarding experience soon!)

There was a great promotion on when I made my order which was if you spent a certain amount you got some free liquid lipsticks and the more you spent the more free you got. I knew I wanted to spend the minimum you needed to get free shipping so I chose three liquid lipsticks and three eyeshadows (which then gave me two free lipsticks as well, result).

Colourpop swatches

For my lipsticks I knew I wanted something a bit different as I am getting to the point now where I have a lot. My collection currently has nudes and then a lot of pinks and purples so I knew red’s was where I was missing. For the price you can not go wrong with the colour pop lipsticks although I have found sometimes the colour on looks completely different to what’s in the tube. Their longevity is amazing and the colour pay off it great, although sometimes they can be a little drying so I’m always careful to fully moisturise my lips. The five I ended up picking up were:

  • Naked Ladies (This is sadly not discontinued) but it is a really bright orangey, red with almost a slight neon look about it. I picked it up as bright colours are always good for nights out/ events/ festivals etc and because it was on last chance it was a bit cheaper.
  • Love Bug is probably one which is closest to the types of things I already have as it’s a rich terracotta colour which has a slight brown tone to it. It’s deeper than anything I own but works really well as a dark nude.
  • Notion is one which comes out completely different on me than it does looking at swatches or online. It’s designed as a red violet but on me it comes out more on the violet side. It’s a beautiful dark colour though almost like a wine/ burgandy.
  • Creeper is your traditional classic blue red. It’s the type of colour I tend to shy away from because they tend to wash out my pale face but I wanted to give it a try.
  • Teeny Tiny is a greyed out plum colour which mixes this current trend for griege (a wierd grey colour) with some purple undertones which warms it out. I find on my pale skin this is really flattering.

Colourpop Eyeshadows

The formula of the colour pop eyeshadows are great as most of the shades are really well pigmented with plenty of omph in them. The only issue I find is a slight inconsistency, some of them have no fall out at all whereas others have quite a lot (and this isn’t just a glitter issue), and some of them come out quite chalky so need to be applied with a brush whereas others are slightly creamier and are best applied withe finger. The three shades I picked up were:

Cheeky is a mid tone coral colour which looks quite orange in the picture but it is a mixture of pastel oranges and pinks. It’s quite a pale shade but works well for blending or for a more neutral look.

So Quiche is perhaps my favourite eyeshadow which I own because it is so glittery and so pigmented I can’t help but feel happy just looking at the colours in it. It has an olive coloured background which suits my green eyes really well and then has flecks of gold and coloured glittered throughout topped off with a metallica finish. The great thing is it isn’t too intense to begin with but has a really buildable finish so you can make it darker.

Drift sadly got smashed on it’s way to me which is a shame but it’s a beautiful cranberry shade with a bit of a shimmer. It works so well at this time of year because it has that real Autumnal feel to it.
