I have been dying to try some Colourpop products, so when I saw that they were having a birthday sale and that they ship to FPO, I hopped on their website to pick out a few things. I love that Colourpop celebrates all skin tones and embraces color as a cornerstone of their brand. It’s refreshing to see such bright, punchy colors at an affordable price! Aaaand they’re also cruelty free!
First up are these Lippie Stix in Cami (top) + Lumiere (bottom). Cami is a “neutral mauve pink ” and in the Matte X finish, which is highly pigmented and a true matte, while Lumiere is a “dusty mauve pink” in the Matte finish, which is obviously still matte, but creamier – and also still really pigmented. I love both of these! The shades are kind of similar, but not really. They each have their own vibe. Lumiere, born through a collab with Kathleen Lights, shows up darker on me than I expected, but I am honestly really pleased with both of them! They are very comfortable on the lips and I love that the applicator is somewhere between the size of a lipstick and a lipliner – it makes it easy to be precise on the go.
I also got two Ulta Satin Lips, Lyin’ King (top) + Naked Ladies (bottom). Lyin’ King is a “saturated raspberry” and Naked Ladies is a “bright coral red.” I haven’t tried Naked Ladies on my lips yet, but I wore Lyin’ King today and was really impressed. The formula was super pigmented, so I didn’t need to layer the product. I have extremely dry lips and am an anxious lip-picker, so I was worried that the formula would draw attention to that, as many other liquid lipsticks do. *Drumroll please* It didn’t! It was so comfortable on my lips and I didn’t feel or see any obvious dryness. I am very impressed with these and can’t wait to purchase some more shades. I’m looking for the perfect nude-pink, so if anyone has a suggestion, let me know!
Finally, I got my hands on some Super Shock Shadows. Trois (top) is part of the Jenn Ne Sais Quoi collab with Jenn Im, Birthday Boy (right) was the free gift for Colourpop’s 2nd birthday, and Beverly (bottom) is from the Kaepop collab with Karrueche Tran. These have the craziest texture! They’re bouncy and creamy, but feel like a powder once they’re on your skin. Birthday Boy and Trois are very pigmented, though I had to swipe Beverly a few times to build it up. I had been eyeing some rich, fall shades of eyeshadows (because fall is clearly the best season) and these are exactly what I was looking for!
I am honestly super impressed with everything that I ordered! I highly recommend trying out this brand, which is also known for its Ultra Matte Lips (which I didn’t try because my lips are probably waaaay too dry for them!). Everything is very affordable, and shipping was free over $30! I purchased everything pictured for $32 and shipping was really fast. The quality and pigmentation has me hooked ass well!
