Colourpop First Impressions
Posted on August 04 2015
I love trying new makeup brands!
I will admit that I didn't do the order process myself as a few of us girls got together and did one big order to save on international shipping. But at around US$7.50 its not bad. And it arrived in less than 2 weeks!
Everything on their site is US$8 or less - except their collaborations with YouTube stars. It was hard for me not to go all out and buy one of everything, however I was very restrained and stuck to three eye shadows and three Lippie Stix.
The website is well laid out and easy to use. Also they have been coming out with some really interesting new products as well.
Another added bonus... NO ANIMAL TESTING!
The only downside is that you can't do swatches buying products online but Colourpop do put photos on their site with swatches on three different skin tones which makes buying just
that bit easier.
Now I'm not a big eye shadow wearer but these eye shadows are so pigmented and creamy. You can use your finger to apply them or use a synthetic eye shadow brush.
LOVELY: Is a beautiful soft neutral gold metallic shade. You could use it for an inner corner highlight, all over the lid for day wear or pair it with some darker shades for an evening smokey look.
SLAVE2PINK: OMG this is the brightest most neon pink you will ever find. It has flecks of blue and purple glitter and is insanely pigmented. I got this as I have been looking for a pink to use as a pop of colour on the lid or on the lower lash line. I am in love with this shade and the texture is fantastic.
I HEART THIS: Its more of a silvery/bronze taupe neutral metallic shade. This shadow could be worn in so many different ways. Again I cant find fault with this product, it soft and creamy with so much pigment and shine.
OVERALL: LOVE! I will be getting more Colourpop in the future because these three shades have made me fall in love with eye shadow.
