If you’re a beauty blogger and haven’t heard of Colourpop by now then where have you been!? Let me introduce to you this amazing US brand which sadly doesn’t ship to the UK (but you can still get your hands on it, read on) they are very affordable and are very popular with their lip products & pigmentation. They are always releasing new shades/products which sell out very quickly and are very on trend with releases too, such as the new Metallic Liquid Lipsticks.
In July Colourpop did an international shipping day, of course, I jumped on board with this straight away as I’ve always wanted to give this brand a try, plus I already had a wish list going on in my head.
After a long wait 2-3 weeks later my order finally got delivered, but unfortunately, I got a customs charge which I later found out you can avoid this by using a mailing service such as Shippo. There’re loads of different companies if you Google them but how these work are you ship them to a US address and this then gets sent to your UK address.
I got this gorgeous deep brown shade called Limbo from the Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick range because I thought of the fall when I saw this, I can’t wait to be wearing dark colours on my lips and this shade is very daring for me. I always feel so confident when I’m wearing a strong bold lip. I’m sure this will pop up in a favourite for A/W themed posts in the future.
I haven’t heard much raving about these highlighters but this shade is called Lunch Money which is a natural pearly golden shade suitable for every day which is what I wanted. You could probably get away with wearing this as an eyeshadow as it’s buildable.
Another shade from the Ultra Matte Lip Range is the shade First Class, it’s a bright orangey red and it looks stunning, perfect for summer. I wore this on a night out and the staying power is incredible. This wasn’t too drying on the lips and I found this very comfortable but I will need to test these more before I give you my thoughts.
I was watching some YT videos on Colourpop products, mainly for swatches and a girl recommended buying the lip pencil with the Lippie Stix’s so you get a precise shape and I picked up the shade Button. When you apply this you will notice it’s slightly a darker shade than the Lippie Stix which looks nice to wear on its own actually.
The eyeshadows are also something I’ve always wanted to try too. They come in individual little white pots so I made sure I picked a shade I will wear to death and that was this beautiful rose gold/copper colour in the shade La La because I love to wear shimmery coppers on my lids. This is gonna be another favourite in the fall season I reckon too.
Lastly we have the Lippie Stix in the shade Button which is a pinky nude colour perfect for everyday wear with a satin finish, I wasn’t sure If I was going to like these so that’s why I only played it safe and picked up a natural colour, but If I was going to order again I would definitely pick up some more shades.
The eyeshadow shade in Hanky Panky which is a cool toned taupe colour, again another colour I can’t get enough of. I thought this would work well on its own or paired with La La as a nice transition shade.
