Beauty | ColourPop! review and haul

February 18, 2016

Oh Boy! I basically fell of the face of the earth over the last week. I came down with the flu and it had me bed ridden and moaning “woe was me” for days on end { my husband is such a trooper, he spoiled me the whole time }. But something that cheered me up right amidst my feverish dreams was a make up delivery from ColourPop cosmetics!

I first placed an order with the new indie brand back in September. I was instantly in love! The colour selection is off the hook and the price cannot be beat, all the ultra mattes are only $6. They undercut every other indie brand by at least 50% so it’s a no brainer to do a little bit of experimenting with them. Even with the failing Canadian dollar, it’s not too hard to convince yourself to splurge a little.

My first order with ColourPop! was for five ultra matte lippies which I never really shared here, so I’ll show off two of them today along side my new stuff. I got a deep red called “avenue”, a mute nude “trap”, a bright yet deep blue called “jellies” as well as two purples, a bright warm purple called “zipper” and a darker cooler purple called “be-dazzled”.

This time around I ordered four ultra matte lipsticks as well as a eye shadow to sample. I restocked my red avenue, as it is by far my favourite red. I recommend this as a great alternative to Lime Crime red velvet, it’s much closer to the rose petal shade I expected when I first tried out Lime Crime over two years ago. It’s also a third of the price and ColourPop! doesn’t have any of the negative stigma surrounding the brand like Lime Crime does.

I also bought a dark grey/beige, or greige if you’re a fan of blending words, which I kinda am called “kapow”, a slightly pinker version of kapow called “teeny tiny”, which I didn’t think was going to be quite as dark as kapow, but I still really like it. And to finish off the lipsticks I ordered from ColourPop! is a wicked melted chocolate brown called “limbo” that is uber perfect for any and all attempts at a 90’s grunge look.

The eye shadow I bought is a dark brown/burgundy with metallic flecks of fuchsia and copper, depending on the light called “stereo”. It is GORGEOUS! The texture surprised me a little, as it’s a little spongy. So it’s not a normal pressed powder, I almost have more luck applying it with my finger than a brush. But it’s highly pigmented. I’m kinda bummed my camera isn’t picking up on the colour very well, but here it is anyway.

My next order will include a restock of trap as I’m lower on than I thought, I also want to try out tulle and some of their highlighters and creme gel eyeliners!

Have you tried ColourPop! Cosmetics yet? Or Do you think you might try them?

    Trap is gorgeous. And I’m really loving that eye shadow, although I have a feeling it’s even more stunning in person.

      It’s WAY better in person, I was bummed that the camera really didn’t pick up on how beautiful the shadow is. It almost looks muddy in the photo.

    I love Colourpop! Even with the currency conversion to AU they work out such good value. The colours they offer are amazing too!

      Yes, our Canadian dollar is in the toilet, only .69 cents to $1 US dollar. It’s awful!! But that’s one reason why I’m still crushing on ColourPop so hard, it’s still a steal!

      oooh, it’s pretty! I just did up a dream basket of ALL the goodies I want and I just racked up a bill of $141 US, but I guess part of that is shipping. Still, I’m gonna save up and treat myself to a MASSIVE haul someday, hopefully soon, but probably not until my b-day in April.
