Uh oh, I may have went a little crazy on the ColourPop ordering here recently - this is actually a combination of 2 orders! The first order, they had a 20% sale, so of course I had to scoop some goodies up, and then for their 2nd Birthday, they released a special edition shadow for the occasion, so I had to put in a second order! Whoops!
Here is a look at the goodies I grabbed:
I will break it down by products and show you some natural light product swatches!
First thing, I grabbed a couple liquid lipsticks:
I grabbed 2 Ultra Matte Lips and 1 Ultra Satin Lip! Here is a look:
Lumiere 2 Ultra Matte Lip ~ $6.00. Meet Lumière's new sister!
I love this colour - it is probably a go-to colour of mine, so I will be wearing this a lot!
Kapow Ultra Matte Lip ~ $6.00. Zach won’t be the only guy waiting at your locker in this muted grey taupe.
This doesn't really look like a muted grey on me, it is more of a dark brownish on me - it is likely not my colour. I will try and see if I can pull it off.
Molly Ultra Satin Lip ~ $6.00. You'll be hugging all your friends in this mid- tone plum lilac.
This is a very different colour than what I normally go for - it is so perfect for Spring and Summer!
Remember, the Ultra Mattes can be a little drying, so I would start with a lip scrub and use a lip primer if you have one! I don't mind the formula as once it is on, it really doesn't budge at all and lasts a long time! The Ultra Satin is a much lighter-weight formula but doesn't dry as well on the lips, so it might wear off faster.
I also grabbed some Lippie Stix (and a matching liner):
The lippie stix come in a variety of finishes from matte, sheer, satin, creme, etc. Here is a look at the swatches:
Button Lippie Stix ~ $5.00. Pale creamy peach nude in a satin finish. Ain’t it just cute as a button?
Button is a "Satin finish" lippie stix - I was expecting this to be a little more nude on me, but I like this colour and I love the finish of the lippie stix! They go on very soft and smooth and add a nice colour with a full coverage finish - perfect for an easy spring day!
Lumiere Lippie Stix ~ $5.00. A dusty mauve pink in a matte finish created by the lovely @KathleenLights - "I wanted a color that both bold and shy people could wear. It's not a nude..it would look great on EVERYONE!"
Lumiere is a "Matte finish" lippie stix and I know these all appear really similar - what can I say, I like a dusty mauve?! But they do have different finishes and I love this color!!!
Cami Lippie Stix ~ $5.00. No need to cover up in this neutral mauve pink in a Matte X finish.
Cami is from a newer line of lippie stix called Matte X - it appears to be more pigmented and longer wearing than the Matte finish. Again a similar colour, but one I love!
Lumiere Lippie Pencil ~ $5.00. A dusty mauve pink created by the lovely @KathleenLights - "I wanted a color that both bold and shy people could wear. It's not a nude..it would look great on EVERYONE!"
To go with all my similar mauve-y shades I ordered, I figured I needed a lip pencil to match!
I will say I love the textures of the Lippie Stix - they go on so smooth and dry well, but don't dry out the lips and have a lovely finish! The lippie pencil goes on very smooth as well!
I also grabbed some eyeshadows:
Whoops, did I happen to buy very similar colours again?! Can you tell that I know what I like! ColourPop hasa very unique formula of eyeshadows and it is somewhere between a full creme shadow and a powder! (You either love it or you don't, but I like it and I don't normally like creme shadows!)
The Super Shock shadows come in a variety of finishes as well - matte, metallic, satin, etc.
Here is a closer look at the colours I bought:
Sunset Blvd ~ $5.00. Warm golden bronze in a Pearlized Finish.
This shadow is from the KaePop collection - is a beautiful shade - I love gold and bronze tone shadows!
Weenie ~ $5.00. A pinky rose gold in a Pearlized finish.
This shadow is from the KathleenLights Where The Night Is collection and seriously, this colour is gorgeous!!! Probably one of my favorite eyeshadow shades ever!
Wattles ~ $5.00. Waddle on over and check out this dusty beige pink in a Satin finish.
This is a great medium toned pink - I feel like I will use this a lot!
Tea Party ~ $5.00. A versatile soft peachy pink with gazillion silver glitters and subtle hints of pale pink glitter. Highlight anything and everything with it! This shade is made for you if: you love pink champagne, sparkles, and tea parties (duh).
This colour is sooo pretty! I love pink, champagne and sparkles so obviously it was made for me! I will have to play around with it to see how well it will work as a shadow!
Cop A Feel ~ $5.00. Don't be afraid to get a little grabby with this cool toned creamy beige with a Matte Finish.
Oooh... this is such a great light matte shade, I will be using this a lot!
Here is a look at the swatch:
Birthday Boy ~ free gift with purchase on their birthday, not available for purchase!
I'm a sucker for limited edition products - I NEED THEM ALL! This colour is really stunning and I can't wait to wear it!
So I will say, when ColourPop sends you instructions or tips on how to use their shadows, follow them! They advise that for the most intense look to use your fingers - I know this isn't how most people prefer to apply their eyeshadow but for this formula it works. Again, this eyeshadow formula is not for everyone, but I love it!
I also grabbed some eyeliners:
I tried 1 potted Creme Gel Colour and 2 Creme Gel Liners! Here are the swatches:
Exit Creme Gel Colour ~ $6.00. Don’t head for the door without this true bright white.
I have actually really just started using potted gel liners, but this one is really highly reviewed and is super pigmented. So I don't like doing swatches with brushes, but I probably should have for this!
Cry Baby Gel Liner ~ $5.00. A cool-toned pastel lavender that won’t make you cry.
This is a very pretty light liner colour - it is not something I wear very often, but is such a fun colour!
Prance Gel Liner ~ $5.00. Jump for joy in this bright periwinkle blue.
Oh hello colour of the year light blue eyeliner! I also like this little pop of colour for a fun look!
All of the liners have great pigmentation and go on nice and smooth! I'm happy with both formulas!
Because I'm not done yet, I also grabbed 2 highlighters and a blush!
I haven't tried either products, but they have a similar creamy consistency like the eyeshadows! I llike the formulas, but will have to practice using them on myself as I haven't used a lot of cream blush before!
Here is how they apply:
Spoon ~ $8.00. A light silver champagne with multi-dimensional silver flecks, that is sure to get you forked.
This is such a beautiful highlight shade! I'm loving how reflective and light it is! I think it works well with my skintone too.
Butterfly Beach ~ $8.00. Soft peach with highlights of gold and silver, a shout-out to our favorite So Cal Beach.
This colour is really beautiful - nice and peachy, but I actually think it is too dark for my skintone for a highlighter! I will keep it either was and see how it works as an eyeshadow!
Between The Sheets ~ $8.00. A mid-tone beige pink in a matte finish, be a lady in the streets or a freak in the sheets.
This is a pretty shade, but it is much more pink than I think the description suggests! Either way, I really like it.
Again, because these products have a different formula I would suggest to use the recommendation brushes for application to help make it applying the products easier!
And, I picked up 2 more products that were new to me!
I thought I would try their Brow Pencil and Sculpting Stix! Here is a look at the swatches:
Bangin Brunette Brow Pencil ~ $5.00. Do it better in this true brunette brown.
I hope you can see it in the first picture, this brow pencil has a super small tip making it really great for precision. The pigmentation is great for a pencil and really allows buildable coverage! This product also comes in a potted gel that I will have to try eventually!
Releve Sculpting Stix ~ $5.00. Creamy white with soft golden highlights.
This swatch shows the colour and then to the right you should be able to lightly see it blended in to my skin. I haven't really used a highlight scultping stick before, but thought for $5 I should try it. You are supposed to apply to areas you want to draw forward - bridge of the nose, cupid's bow, etc and then blend out! I like this colour so I will try this and see if it is right for me!
Alright, I bought a little more than I intended, but there was quite a few products I wanted to try and ColourPop pricing is so affordable!
