My First Colourpop Haul

11/20/2018




Colourpop is no stranger to beauty lovers. I've been dying to try out this products for the longest time and this year, with the help of a friend, I finally place my first order on their website. Spoiler alert: Everything is so nice!
I placed a 50$ order in order to get the international free shipping. If you live in the UK, you can pay your VAT at the end of  your purchase and you will no longer pay extra money to Royal Mail or anything like that. Super smooth hun? (I might place another order after Christmas or in mid-March around Easter since I might be visiting my mum in the UK) 


The first item that got into my bag was obviously the Give it To Me Straight Palette (with a name that can rival most of Fall Out Boy song titles due to it's length), which is a gorgeous neutral palette with a few warm notes. I almost got Yes Please and their Good Sport palette, but because I wasn't really sure about the colour scheme of these I went for this one. I also wanted to get their Disney Designer palette but it was completely sold out at the time (I might grab it after Christmas if it's still available)
As a first impression, I actually thought this palette was going to be bigger than what actually is (not complaining, I mean this just cost 16$ which is a bargain!) and does not contain a mirror - which doesn't bug me too much since I tend to not use palette mirrors. It has 12 shades, 5 shimmers and 7 mattes and as stated before, it has warm toned shadows. My favourite shades so far are BS, Candid and Be Blunt. A full review will come out in December.


But I could not pass on their eyeshadow's and face items, specially from the Super Shock line. First I got the Super Shock Cheek in Between the sheets, which is a perfect blush shade for everyday wear and any occasion. I am still playing with it, but so far I believe this blush is better applied with my fingers than with a brush. I also picked a highlighter and it's really funny because I got the Super Shock Cheek in Flexitarian thinking it would be a more natural highlighter instead of something like Spellbound or Felicity (which are still in my wishlist) but it is really bright (although I can have a light hand with it and making it work). And if you are wondering about the look of it, the highlighter was kinda all condensed into a ball when I got it (I imagine that it was because of travelling in the place??) and I had to smosh it into place again. And as you can see, I also got a Super Shock Shadow broken, which are the only two minor things I'd have to complain.
Speaking of that, the one that got broken is the Super Shock Shadow in Weenie and it's a ultra-metallic eyeshadow that I love to wear all over the lid, but that I am planning to also use as a accent shade in a halo eyeshadow look. The same goes to the Super Shock Shadow in La La, a glitter-finish eyeshadow that I also love to year on it's own and as an accent shade. Both shades are easy to blend out with my fingers and with matte eyeshadows. I am looking forward to get more of these and try out their matte formula as well.


Lastly but not least, I wanted to try out their ultra-famous liquid lipsticks so I decided to get their bundle Up and Away, with three nude lipsticks - two ultra matte and one ultra satin.  The Ultra Satin Lip in Calypso reminds me of a old favourite of mine from Sephora, but not as matte. I find these really comfortable to wear, although they feel a bit stick at first and will come off a lot easier. On the other hand, both of the Ultra Matte Lip in Mama and Love Bug will stay in place and only move when eating super greasy food. Mama is actually more on the Orage-side and as strange as it seems, It's actually my favourite shade from the bunch. I am looking forward to get more shade in the future!

    1. They are indeed a good thing to try out. For their price point, they are like drugstore but with a quality that can rival with high end eyeshadow palettes like Huda Beauty! (at least in my humble opinion)

      Wishing you all the best!
