ColourPop Haul: Photos & Swatches


ColourPop makeup: photos, swatches


I very rarely do haul posts, but if you follow me on Instagram, you know that I received an exciting package yesterday: my first ColourPop order! I had been wanting to try this new and already cult LA makeup brand for a while, but somehow I kept finding more urgent things to buy... No more, I finally got my greedy fingers on the fun bouncy shadows and slim lipsticks! Today I want to share some photos (it's gonna be pic heavy), swatches and very fresh first impressions. 


ColourPop makeup: shipping box

First, I need to talk about the quality of the shipment packaging again. Have you ever cringed when you received makeup in the mail, because your products were tossed in a large box with nothing to protect them from shocks? Had a panic attack thinking your precious new beauties would be shattered? If you have, take a deep breath and order from ColourPop. These guys know that makeup is fragile and that it needs to be packaged with care. They really go above and beyond to make sure your items will arrive in pristine condition, with a ton of soft foamy material all around them. Like I said on Instagram, I do the majority of my shopping online, and never, NEVER have I seen makeup packaged with such care. Kuddos to ColourPop for taking the shipping part of their customer experience so seriously! May their professionalism inspire the online retail industry...

The products also come with cute postcards with directions and application tips. The most important tip (I guess, since it's printed EVERYWHERE) is to close the lid of the little jars tightly. OK, I'll remember that, the last thing I want is for my new shadows to dry out fast!

Here's a list of what I ordered: 


ColourPop makeup: Lippie Stix, Super Shock Shadow and Cheek

- 2 Lippie Stix: Frida (satin) and Lumière (matte). Both look nicely pigmented, but I don't see a big difference in finish between the two. We'll see on the lips. By the way lumière means light in French (the noun, as in what you get when you turn on the lights, not the adjective, antonym of dark) 


ColourPop Lippie Stix: Frida and Lumiere

- 1 Super Shock Cheek: Never Been Kissed (matte). Looks like a very nice pink coral. 

- 1 Super Shock Pressed Pigment: Girl Power. I like that the jar says "Not for eye area" but ColourPop's website has a photo of a makeup using Girl Power on the lids... This is a borderline neon reddish orange color that reminded me a lot of Chanel's Rouge-Gorge Illusion d'Ombre shadow part of their fall collection. I'm debating trying it on my lids on top of a good base. 

- 4 Super Shock Shadows: Mixed Tape (pearlized), Plaid (classified as matte which is weird because it's full of shimmer), Party Time (matte although it also has blue shimmer), and Lace (pearlized).

A lot of these products are part of the fall 2015 collection - everything but the Lippie Stix and Lace actually! Of course the main appeal of ColourPop, besides the pretty colors and fun packaging, is that everything here is $5 a piece, except for the blush that sells for $8. Stay tuned for reviews when I've had time to play with these goodies! 

Where to buy? Exclusively on ColourPop's website.
