Colourpop Cosmetics Eyeshadow, Lippie Stix, & Ultra Matte Lip Haul + Swatches!

Saturday, February 20, 2016

I have been dying to try Colourpop Cosmetics! I kept checking out the website, looking through their instagram and watching other hauls on youtube... yet I almost feel guilty since I know I have so much makeup and I've been trying to cut back a little. Well, long story short, that didn't work. I broke down and figured well, this is my passion so what the heck?! Plus, I get to share it with you guys and maybe introduce you to some products you'd be interested in trying too! Well, that was a bit of an intro. haha.

Let's get to the breakdown....
Colourpop Cosmetics Super Shock Eyeshadows
Now these babies are awesome! If you've watched any videos or read any blogs about these videos, every one raves about the texture of the eyeshadows. I'm jumping on that band wagon! Well, I guess not really, since I genuinely LOVE the texture of these eyeshadows! 
Their eyeshadows are $5 a pop, which makes them pretty affordable. The colors are very pigmented and unique. I love their wide array of colors, shades, and finishes. 

Using these eyeshadows are really easy! You can use the with a brush or your finger. They do say on the website that using your finger improves the color payoff. I feel like thats how most eyeshadows are anyways. The swatches below were done with my finger. Look how pretty they are. 

The shades from left to right are: Puppy Love, Bill, Bandit, Central Perk, BAE, and Friskie.
I wanted to pointed this eyeshadow out in particular because I think this is so cool! All of the proceeds from this particular eyeshadow, Puppy Love, go to Best Friends Animal Society. I think that's so awesome and I'm always down to support a good cause. Plus, the color is really pretty :) 
 As you can see marked on the sides of the boxes, you need to keep the lids of these eyeshadows nice and tight to prevent them from drying up. Another thing I want to note about these eyeshadows is these don't last a very long time. I've used Puppy Love less than 10 times, maybe around 8 or 9, and I've already hit pan! I pointed this out in the video above and you can see where I hit pan. I'm assuming this is because of the smooth texture so you use more product up when you use it. 
 ColorPop Cosmetics Super Shock Blush
This is the only blush I've tried from Colourpop. The shade I have is in Flush'd. The color of this is a really pretty coral color. I was actually hoping this would be a little bit more... brown I guess? I'm not really sure. I do want to say the pictures on the Colourpop website aren't the best. I feel like this is a common issue with ordering online so that's the beauty of bloggers right?! :D I still love this color though and it looks really nice on my skin tone. 
 Colourpop Lippie Stixs
These are a BIG seller for Colourpop. Not only do they come in a wide array of colors, but they're super smooth, comfortable to wear, and very affordable at $5 each. I love the price point of these because I feel like I can experiment with different colors and not feel guilty if I don't wear it everyday. 

From left to right: Grunge, Brink, Lady, Nevermind, Rayezor, and Oh Snap.
 Here are the swatches done in the same order as above. If you want to see what they look like on my lips, check out the video above! I tried every color on my lips to show you how they look on my skin tone. I also did this with the Ultra Matte Lips as well :) 
 Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips
These are also a big seller for Colourpop. Again, they come in lots of colors, are very affordable at $6 each, and they're comfortable to wear for a matte lip color. You can see the color family that I like to stick with can't you!? :) haha. I swear, even though they look really similar in the tubes, they all look very different on my lips. Again, I did apply them on my lips in the video above, so if you're curious to see how they look check that out! 

From left to right: Avenue, Beeper, Teeny Tiny, Chilly Chili, Bumble, and Tulle 
 The swatches below are in the same order as stated above! 
Alrighty! :) That's everything I hauled from Colourpop! I did this haul in two separate orders. The first order I did have some issues with, which I talked about in the video, so if you're curious about that check that out! Just to give you a hint; some of my lippies smelled like PLASTIC. Yuck! Just watch the video and I'll explain :) Hope you guys had fun reading this post!
