ColourPop Cosmetics Eyeshadow Reviews: Bae, Fringe, Fantasy

I think ColourPop Cosmetics is one of the biggest breakout brands from 2014. They created a lot of buzz last year and I predict that they will have an amazing 2015. I can't wait to see their range expand and try the new products they come out with. I made a small purchase to see if their products lived up to the hype. Today I'll be reviewing two eyeshadows and one pressed pigment: Fringe, Bae, and Fantasy. Each one costs $5.

People have mentioned that ColourPop eyeshadows have a cushiony cream-hybrid texture. Initially, I was hesitant to try them because of this. Although I love cream eyeshadows, I recognize that sometimes their versatility isn't the best. They make great eyeshadow bases and are beautiful stand alone colors, but creams don't blend well over powders or too close to them. Thankfully, you don't have to worry about that with ColourPop eyeshadows. The formula is more of a cream-to-powder mousse which feels drier than most cream eyeshadows. It blends very well under, over, and close to powders. 

The pigmentation is very, very good. So is the longevity. They apply best with synthetic brushes or fingers. I am in love with these eyeshadows, their depth, and the overall color selection available from ColourPop

Also, if you already own MAC Club Eyeshadow and are afraid Bae is too similar to it, do not worry. Bae has a redder/maroon base and its duochrome glitter is stronger. Fringe is an absolute must-have! It's so metallic and reflective; a total crowd pleaser which gets many compliments. I used Fringe in a previous makeup look here and Fantasy in this one. Look out for a look featuring Bae in the future!

A note on their customer service: I had a great experience ordering from ColourPop but found their processing time to be a little slow (five days to ship). I understand that they're a small company and have recently been plugged by many popular influencers on social media, but customers are accustomed to fast online turnarounds and feel anxious when their paid merchandise isn't shipped promptly (at least I do!) One thing I really liked is that they sent me a very sweet handwritten note with my order. 


What are your recommendations from ColourPop? I'm hoping to make another order in the upcoming months.

  5. Five days to ship! Lawd! I made an order recently and it hasn't shipped either :p But I will be patient. These look stunning - such intense pigmentation and I love the complexity of the glitters :)

  11. My oh my these eye shadows look like something else, they are utterly beautiful. I know deep down I wouldn't wear them myself (I don't think) but for a party or another special occasion I reckon I could try.

  12. I've heard so many good things about ColourPop, but I'm afraid their eyeshadows will smear onto my contacts. I can't wear a lot of my cream eyeshadows anymore because of them :( The three shades you have are BEAUTIFUL.

    1. That's a shame! They set well. I think with a primer you might be fine x

  13. I love the look of Bae but I'll admit I am waiting to see how the CP highlighters go before purchasing any of their products :)

  18. i've heard so much about colourpop and i really want to try some of their products, it's just a shame that they don't actually work out too cheap when you have to add on international shipping which, when you want to order say 5-6 things, ends up costing you about $20 on top of the $30 you're spending on products! i'm pretty desperate to get my hands on their bichette lipstick though, it looks gorgeous!

  23. TAKE MY MONEY! I've been lusting after several shades now, including BAE! As I have nothing similar to it at all in my stash and can't believe how cheap they are! Drugstore eyeshadow singles/duos/trios/quad cost x3 the price of those here so I can't wait till they ship to more countries! Ugh! They're so gorgeous!

  30. I looooove Colour Pop! That's so strange that it took so long to process your order. I live in Tennesse and from my understanding, they ship from California. It never takes longer than 5 days to get to me which is crazy because when I order from Forever 21 or any other retailer based in California, it takes up to two weeks! Any ways, I think their products are well worth the wait! :)
