Let’s try this again, shall we. I published this last week, but I scheduled it for a two weeks ago instead of the present date. So if you signed up to receive my emails and clicked on this post , it didn’t appear. Let’s hope this re-post fixes that problem.
Sooooooooooooo I have a slight obsession with Colourpop and heres why.
- The quality is amazing!
- Its affordable!
- For an online store, their customer service is great!
If you read my 2015 Beauty Favorites you know a little bit about my Colourpop obsession. I made two purchases last year for their liquid lipsticks and in the past few months I placed two more orders for their eyeshadows and lippie stix.
For those of you makeup lovers that have been living under a rock the past two years, Colourpop is an online makeup company based out of California. Almost all of their products are vegan and they all range from $6-$8. Shipping is standard- $5, but free for all orders over $30. First time customers who subscribe for their mailing list get $5 off your first order! All in all, their makeup won’t break the bank. Their customer service is amazing. Orders take about 1 day to process and 3-5 days to arrive after shipping, if its around the time of a new product launch it will take longer. Each order comes with a hand written thank you note, which is adorable. They’re on every social media platform so I’m sure if you need to contact them you won’t have a hard time doing so.
I did some swatches of the eyeshadows and lipsticks, so I’m just going to talk about them along with some pictures!
I used to have liquid lipstick obsession, but I hate how drying they are. I had 6 liquid lipsticks, but I lost my favorite one- beeper. Because its a liquid lipsticks its drying so it’s best to apply a decent layer of chapstick before. It will take about a minute to dry, and after that its smudge proof. Of course, if you eat or drink it will eventually wear off, but overall it lasts pretty long.
Left to right: Avenue, LAX, Limbo, Kapow $6
This lippie stix is limited edition, but its the only one I have. This color looks exactly like RiRi Woo from MAC, but its very moisturizing! I’ll definitely buy more.
Heres a swatch paired with the suggested lip liner.
The eyeshadows! HHHOOOOHHHHEEEMMMMMMMMGGGGGEEEE
I don’t know why it took me so long to buy these shadows. Its ridiculously pigmented. I swatched the colors with one swipe, thats it. I apply them with my fingers, but I use a blending brush for the shadows in my crease. I was so suprised when I first swatched it. It feels like a wet, memory foam pillow case. It sounds weird, but its pretty cool. lol So lets get into these swatches!!!
L-R: Rex, Drift, Hammered, Central Perk, Porter, Coconut $5
Rex– “Black drenched with multiple shades of blue glitter, to be perfectly honest, this shadow is just downright badass. No description needed.” (The descriptions are directly from the site!)
Drift: Pop this true cranberry in a pearlized finish on your eyes and you may notice some attractive men drifting your way
Hammered: Get turnt up with a smoky olive with tons of gold glitter and a soft sprinkle of multi-colored sparkles in a metallic finish – or at least know you won’t ever get turnt down while wearing it.
Central Perk: Throw on this dirty maroon in a Matte finish before meeting your friend, Princess Consuela Bananahammock, at your favorite coffee joint.
BlushesI’ve been wearing one blush color since I started wearing makeup in high school. Its just not something I care too much about, but I decided to branch out. I’ve been looking for a rich, burgundy color and this one is perfecttttt! Definitely brown girl friendly!
Thanks for stopping by!!!!
