In the new year I decided to treat myself myself to a ColourPop order. They had free international shipping on orders over $50 so I thought I'd take advantage. Side note - when ordering internationally there is also a risk of a customs charge. Which I got. On this particular order it was £17. But because of the free shipping it wasn't a big deal. But anyway onto what I got...
ColourPop Perfectly Peach Set | $33
Peach seems to be the colour trend of the moment in the beauty industry, which I totally love. So I went for this Value set which contains the Peachy Keen Super Shock Shadow Quad and Just Peach, which is 3 Ultra Satin Lips Liquid Lipsticks.
The Peach Keen Quad contains:
Crimper - A pale Gold with micro glitters and metallic finish.
Kennedy - A medium, matte Peach.
Cornelius - A matte, warm toned Caramel Brown.
Bandit - a warm, rusty, Red shade.
The ColourPop eyeshadow formula is so unique. It's kind of a dry moussey texture. It's really hard to explain. But all the shadows are really pigmented. The mattes are amazing, they apply and blend so smoothly. They do take a bit of time to get used to though. And using a synthetic brush applies them best.
The Just Peach set contains:
Instigator (Ultra Matte) - This is described as a matte toned, Peachy nude. I've not tried this shade. But it looks so pretty.
Screenshot (Ultra satin)- A mid toned nude Peach with a satin finish.
Speed Dial (Ultra Matte) - A rich, matte Peach shade. I used this shade and it does dry a lot darker than it looks in the tube. But I really like this shade.
The Ultra Satin Lips have a really nice formula. While they're not the most long-lasting liquid lipsticks they are super comfortable, wear well and are really pigmented. I find the Ultra Matte lips comfortable, long wearing and not overly drying. I do tend to apply a lip balm before though. for just $5 these are incredible!
ColourPop Highlighter | $8
I've really come to love my ColourPop highlighter in the shade Wisp so I wanted to try another one. I went for Churro. Which is supposed to be a marble effect highlighter, with Gold, Peach and Copper tones running through it. But mine is just like a dip die effect. Which was slightly disappointing. But I'm excited to see what all the hype is about regardless.
ColourPop Blush | $8
Next I picked the Famous blush in the shade Quarters. This is a stunning Peachy Coral colour. The shade is so pretty and the formula is similar to the eyeshadows. I like to apply this with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush. It is very pigmented so a light hand is definitely required.
ColourPop Super Shock Shadow | $5
After seeing the Shade Sequin all over my Instagram feed, I just had to get it. It's a stunning warm toned, Copper with a metallic finish. It's a really stunning shade that is so pigmented! I think this will quickly become a favourite.
ColourPop Ultra Stain Lip | $6
Another shade I keep seeing everywhere is Echo Park. It's a warm, Peachy nude but I'd say it's more of a Mauve-y Pink. Either way, it's perfect for everyday wear. The formula is the same as the Ultra Satins I mentioned earlier. I'm sure this shade will become a firm favourite!
So that's everything I picked up. If your debating making an order I definitely recommend doing it. I know it seems expensive with shipping and customs charges but the formulas are well worth it!
Have you tried any of these? What are you thoughts?
Until next time...
