Sooo, I went a little crazy on Colourpop's website the other day and I wanted to share with you some of my picks and reviews! I have a $5 coupon for you to use here if you're interested in shopping!
Here's what I got:
Blush, Highlighter, 1 new Lipstick, Concealer, 2 Eyeshadow platettes
I really like colourpop for their awesome affordable products. They have such a range and keep growing it's awesome. The only thing is since it is so expensive if you don't like something you can't return it.
I also got this lippe stick, and I'm not really going to review it because I'm an idiot and buy all lippie sticks that are about the same color *insert facepalm emoji* So I'm disappointed in myself but still love the creamy formula!
Next up is the lipstick! And I can't really give a review on this because it swatches so orange and looks pretty bad in my opinion on my fair skin. So I haven't really worn it out for a wear test. I do have to say though I think it will be much prettier when I am more tan. So fingers crossed for a pretty summer color!
First up is the lippe stick and then the lipstick. Colors are:
This is the colors for the small palette called: And I love it for a summer look. Its warmer toned than I was expecting. I will say that as much as I like it I feel like I can only make about 2 looks. But its perfect for my summer look at the office and for that I really like it! Shimmers are pretty subtle though.
I also messed up on the concealer ... I was looking for more of a highlighter over my foundation and I did not get a light enough shade. You win some you lose some. But I will say that this concealer is thick and full coverage. I really like that aspect. It doesn't seem to blend wonderfully with my foundation but I wonder if that has to do more of the coverage. So I can't really give a full review because I feel I need this right color. Sorry guys, this is what comes with online shopping!
Blush & Highlighter Review:
I LOVE my blush and highlight shades! One thing that colourpop does really well is showcase items on different skin tones so I feel like I can feel get a feel for the color of the products. The highlighter gives me shine without being too much. Its such a pretty champagne on my fair skin and I feel like I can build it up to whatever brightness I want.
The blush is just the perfect pretty pink and I also feel like it is buildable. And I never feel like I have clown cheeks so that a major bonus!
The only downside is though that you get the pan and pop it into the packaging. So all packaging is the same. I never know when I got in my make up drawer if I'm getting the blush or the highlighter since there aren't names on the bottom. But other than that I like how thin it is and how its magnetic and still gives you a mirror!
Colors I got are:
Big Palette Review:
This palette is called the "Give It To Me Straight" and it's $16. It's much smaller than I was expecting. I find I have some trouble making looks with this palette because it doesn't feel really cohesive. I like it for simpler looks that have just a few colors. And there isn't really a transition shade. The skimmer/glitter shades as not as pigmented as other palettes I'm used to, or even NYX. But I still really enjoy this palette, I think it will be perfect for summer and bronzed looks. Also great for on the go with its small size!
I hope you found this review helpful! And liked all the photos included! Let me know if you wnat more reviews like this!
