Good morning class,
Got some good news! Another Colourpop haul! Yes. Obviously I’m still obsessed and still Colourpop’s best customer. Nope, no sponsorship deals yet haha –
fingers crossed 😉
Anyway, if you know me – then you blimmen’ well know that I am ADDICTED, OBSESSED, INFATUATED, CRAZY FOR, MANIC, and PASSIONATE about Colourpop. I honestly don’t know what it is. But I cannot help myself. ALL of this has been bought with my own money and I can tell you right now, when I told my mum how much I’d spent thus far… she was not impressed! Let’s hope the boyfriend doesn’t find out eh?
I am hoping that you guys like Colourpop as much as me, considering I talk about it ALL THE TIME. However, I feel like Colourpop is something that people of all ages could get into – I’ve got my mum addicted as well! Their colour range is phenomenal and there is something everybody would like. Whether it’s your nana, mum, dad, brother, auntie, friend – you name it, they’re bound to be interested in SOMETHING from the range.
This time I picked up four of the new highlighters (how could I NOT!?), four eye shadows, four Lippie Stix, and one Lippie Pencil. I’ve been using them for a couple of weeks because I wanted to haul & review them for you – otherwise I’ll get excited and want to write about them again!
Honestly, there’s no way on earth I could wait until the end to talk about the highlighters. Highlighters in general are my favourite makeup product. Due to the fact that I am obsessed with shimmer, glitter, and light shades. Therefore it’d be rude not to mention them first 😉
Stole The Show looks a bit munted because it was broken via transit and I had to squish it back together (however the beauty of these products is they can squish back together so easily and become as good as new!).
My FAVOURITE shade has to be Monster – it’s like a bright, light coloured shade with this amazing duo chrome pink shimmery amazingness to it. Like, you’ll see on the swatches below that it’s got this gorgeous pink sheen to it and it comes up AMAZING on the cheek. It honestly is the most outstanding highlighter I’ve ever used. It looks unreal with a light pink blush and I ALWAYS get compliments when I wear it. I wore it the other day and one of the girls in my class looked at me for a moment and proclaimed – “Miss White, you have a really nice face!”. I put it all down to this highlighter.
Stole The Show is my next fave because it’s got everything I love in a highlight. It’s pigmented, light champagne, plenty of shimmer and pink, gold and silver glimmery bits. It is perfection in a highlighter.
The feel of these highlighters is a mix between the blushes and eye shadows. It’s SO easy to apply (I rub my fingers in the pot, and pat it onto my cheek bones after applying foundation). You only need the tiniest bit and voila – you’re a goddess!
Hippo is a gorgeous bright shade with lavender and lilac undertones and gorgeous shimmers throughout it. Probably the least pigmented of the bunch, it still looks gorgeous on the cheek for a more subtle highlight (rather than a glitter bomb).
Wisp is the epitome of Soft and Gentle by Mac in a Colourpop highlighter. It looks dark in the pan and in the swatches (just like S&G) but once applied it comes off as this gorgeous golden highlight that makes you look like a mermaid-slash-Greek goddess.
They’re not the most amazing swatches of all time because they’re highlighters so they’re not exactly easy to swatch. They’re not supposed to be super duper pigmented because, well, you don’t want a pigmented line of gold across your cheeks do you!? Hopefully my wrinkly finger-swatches will help you get an idea of the colours. But you probably just need to buy them. All of them. And buy me some too.
Super Shock Eye Shadows
I bought four Super Shock Eye Shadows in the colours (from left to right) Bite, Game Plan, Get Lucky and So Quiche.
So Quiche happens to be my most favourite colour out of every eye shadow I own by Colourpop (which is alot). It’s really hard to do it justice description-wise as the colour simply won’t show up in photos. However it’s like a browny, gun metal sort of colour with some silver shimmer in it… but GET THIS. It also has these amazing pink & violet duo chrome metallic shimmer glitter bits in it which make it AMAZING. Colourpop says it’s the “Queen of the shadows” which I totally agree with! A MUST HAVE.
Bite is awesome because it’s a perfectly pigmented matte white. So handy to have in your collection and I find it applies nicer than the NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk so I recommend it. Good as a base for your shadow to make the colours pop!
Game Plan always reminds me of that stupid movie with The Rock in it. However it’s an amazing bronze-orange colour which makes your eyes POP. It’s perfect on the lid with a nice dark brown underneath and it is quick and easy to apply and REALLY pigmented.
Get Lucky is basically just the perfect gold. In fact, I think even Colourpop themselves describe it as that too. I agree with them. It’s just a really nice gold. Nice and metallic and pigmented. It is fab.
Girrrrl, you know I won’t be making a Colourpop order without some lip products! I won’t be making any orders without lip products. I am a lip product addict. See: 50 Shades of Pink
I got four Lippie Stix in the colours Pepper, Tootsie, Leather and Corset + the matching Lippie Pencil for Tootsie.
I got the lip pencil in the shade Leather in one of my first hauls and stupidly didn’t buy the lipstick. Finally I have it in my hot little hands and we’re just in time for autumn! This colour is outrageously pigmented. It’s a matte formula and it looks AWESOME. It brings me back to my emo days that’s for sure.
Pepper is VERY similar to Brills (See: first Colourpop haul) however it’s slightly more pink than purple and it is a bit more wearable. I am loving it actually and I like how it’s sort of inbetween pink and purple. Seems like the perfect Miss White colour.
Corset is in the Hyper-Glossy formula and it’s the first glossy lipstick I’ve tried from Colourpop. I hate glossy lipsticks because they’re never pigmented enough and they don’t last very long. This one, I find is actually neither of those things. It’s ridiculously pigmented for a glossy lipstick and it lasts for ages! Not quite as long as a matte but it’d give them a run for their money! The glossy finish looks gorgeous on the lips and I am obsessed.
Tootsie is literally an exact dupe for Underground by Gerard Cosmetics – honestly, it’s exactly the same. I actually think Toosie is a better formula too! It’s creamier, lasts longer, and you can buy the lipstick and matching pencil for half the price of Underground. Underground is supposed to be a dupe for Cashmere by Lime Crime which means I guess Tootsie is also a dupe for that too. I LOVE Tootsie – I find this colour is really flattering on my skin tone!
Well, overall it was a GREAT haul! I picked up some new favourites and I finally got to try the highlighters I’ve been lusting after for so long. If you haven’t tried Colourpop yet, you honestly need to. You’re missing out! The Highlighters, Blushers and Bronzers are only $8 US and the Lippie Stix, Lippie Pencils and Super Shock Eyeshadows are $5 US. It’s actually unreal. If you live in the US and you haven’t tried them yet then I’m banning you from my page until you make an order (not really, but please make one!). If you don’t trust my advice then do a quick Google search and you’ll see the millions of positive reviews about Colourpop!
