A Little Colourpop Haul + Swatches


Colourpop is quickly becoming one of my favourite makeup brands ever. It's super affordable and pretty much every product i've used by theirs I have LOVED (minus the ultra matte lips which are more drying than the sahara desert).

I did an order with my sister and my parcel finally arrived a few days ago. Honestly, nothing makes me become crazy like ordering stuff online. I check the tracking every five seconds!!

Would absolutely recommend Colourpop to anyone and everyone. When you purchase over $50 you get free shipping, and it's easy to get to the $50 as there's so much to buy.

Now aint this the most perfect palette if you've seen one?! It was only $16 too! I absolutely love the shade range in this, completely wearable featuring some gorgeous shimmer shades. My favourite shade of the bunch is the one on the bottom left, it's sooo pretty. As you can tell from the swatches above this palette is very pigmented. I don't even need to apply fix+ on the shimmer shades as they are so strong already without it. Can see myself using this non-stop.

Colourpop palettes usually sell out super quick but I just checked online and this is still in stock - so if you like the look of it then I think go for it cause you'll get a lot of use from it. Link here.

Aquarius was a wildly popular lippie stix from the Kathleen Lights collection that they asked her to come back and create it in all their lipstick formulations. As I was a huge fan of the Aquarius lippie stix I knew it would be worth buying the other formulations. The ultra satin lip is one of my favourite formulations of lipstick EVER as it's highly pigmented, non-drying, and lasts allll day. Only $6 too.

This is easily going to become something i'll go through tubes of because this shade is my perfect nude. It kinda reminds me of the Koko K lipkit by Kylie. Except this formula is waay nicer and not as drying.

Again, this shade is just gorgg. A pink lipgloss is the easiest thing to throw on in a rush to leave the house. I also think it is something that can top any lipstick. It's $6 as well which makes me a happy lil camper. 

I only got one of these and dammit...I love it. Just thought it would be nice to try out as sometimes I like doing a subtle lipstick which looks like a lip stain. This is exactly that product and I can confirm it's amazing. It's a very thin sheer formula which takes a few swipe to build up. It eventually dries matte but it's so thin that you can't even feel it on your lips. There are only a few shades out so far but I can't wait for them to release more. Definitely worth adding to your cart.

Definitely not a colour i'd purchase myself..but Colourpop kindly gifted this free due to being a bit late on delivery due to having a huge influx of orders. I don't know if this will get much wear but I kinda want to rock it?? I mean..it's definitely quite bright and out of my comfort zone but perhaps this could look cute?? Anyway it's just nice Colourpop gave this as a freebie. 

Do you guys have any favourites from Colourpop?

  2. I think a Colourpop order for me is overdue haha! I don't make them often, but when I do I go all out. For some reason I've never checked out Aquarius...but the USL looks amazing on you! I really want to get one of their eyeshadow palettes. The one you got is gorgeous but the super warm yellow/orange one is calling my name!

    1. I reallyyy want the warm toned one, every time I go on Colourpop it's sold out but next time it's restocked i'll definitely be getting it! x

  3. I like the pressed shadow palette, the freebie you scored (I love bright colours, but not sure if I could rock that shade either) + the Aquarius Ultra Glossy Lip! I've never tried anything from Colourpop, although I did have a wishlist for them at one stage. I might have to get back on the bandwagon.

  5. I love a good Colourpop order. I haven't tried their pressed shadows yet but everyone seems to love and at a pretty cheap price point, why not? Must get my hands on them next time I make an order.
