ColourPop Cosmetics Haul and Swatches
New makeup purchases are far and few between in this blog lately. Some time over a month ago I decided to treat myself to some makeup from ColourPop Cosmetics. They had just released a lot of new products (brow gels, new lipsticks, eyeliners) so there was a lot to choose from. By the way, they just had a site-wide 20% off sale yesterday *cries*. I wish I had gotten this post up earlier, but, oh well. Although, when I tried to visit their site yesterday I was placed in a queue because of the high traffic they were receiving. They might just extend the sale, who knows. Anyway, here’s what I got during my last purchase…
Edit: The sale has been extended until today (May 1st, 2016 9PM PST).
ColourPop Creme Gel Liner in Maybe and Puppy ($5 each): I highly recommend trying ColourPop’s newly released eyeliners. They came out with a mesmerizing selection of colors in both pencil and jar formats. It was impossible to narrow down my purchase, but I ended up choosing a bright green and orange because I have been loving pairing a smokey eye with a pop of color on the waterline.
ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in Coconut ($5): This eyeshadow had been on my wishlist for ages. It swatches beautifully and, trust me, it looks just as striking on the eyes. I love wearing this color. It definitely lived up to my expectations.
ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip in Mess Around ($6): The Ultra Satin formula is a great option for those who want a liquid lipstick with a softer formula (one that doesn’t dry 100% matte or accentuate lip texture). Mess Around is very pigmented and feels comfortable on the lips. It looks matte but is not completely transfer-proof (like matte liquid lipsticks).
ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Jellies ($6): I picked this color because I’ve been trying to buy Anastasia’s Paint for ages. It’s always out of stock at my local Macy’s so I decided to try this affordable alternative instead. Jellies does not have Paint’s metallic finish, but I was willing to overlook that. I will post a full review of this soon but I have already posted a lip swatch on my Instagram.
You will be seeing this products on upcoming makeup looks in the coming weeks. Let me know if you got anything from the ColourPop sale!
