You probably don’t.
I’m that super slacking beauty blogger that hasn’t posted anything in a very, very long time. I have no good excuses other then I have been extremely lazy lately and I have also tried to slow down on making sooooo many beauty purchases. I’ve got to put myself on a budget if the boyfriend and I will be buying/moving into our OWN HOUSE in June. 🙂 Yipppeeee!!!!!
With a new home in the works and one of the bedrooms already assigned as a walk in closet/makeup room, I’m almost contemplating doing mini video tutorials and pictorials….this is a big maybe though. I hate how I look/sound on camera…so we shall see.
So enough rambling about me, lets get into it and on to discuss one of my new favourite companies/ product lines.
Colour Pop Cosmetics Lippie sticks, lippie pencils and eyeshadows.
If you watch any YouTube beauty gurus you probably have heard of this Brand. if you haven’t, I’m going to tell you all about it! 🙂
Alright, so even though these were one of my recent faves, I have one complaint just to put out there before anyone buys them. The shipping costs and time were brutal. For such inexpensive products ( between $5 and $8) the shipping is $15! Which is a bit high if you ask me. The way to make it a little more justifiable would be to buy quite a large order, which I did of course! 😉 Also, I don’t know if it was just my particular order or not, but it took almost a month to receive my little babies. Wayyyyy too long for a makeup obsessed girl who checked the tracking #…. every. single. day.
With all of that out of the way, let’s get into the positives shall we? 🙂
My order included 8 of their shadows, 5 lip liners and 4 Lippie sticks.
The eyeshadows are a bouncy cream consistency at first and dry to a powder finish . They are very unique in their texture and the pigmentation is awesome.
The best way to apply these that I have figured it out through trial and error is to use your fingers rather then a brush. Of course you can use a brush if you prefer, but you will need to layer the product to get the most colour. I would recommend a densely packed brush ( some what stiffer bristles) if you are going to go this route.
The colours I purchased were;
Bae, Mittens (Fave!), Girl crush, Sequin (Fave!), Chipper, Hanky Panky, Kimono, Ibiza (Fave!)
The Lippie sticks come in a few different finishes such as matte and satin. I really like the way that these apply. They come in a twist up pen that is much thinner then your conventional lipstick. I find this makes for easier application.
Colours I purchased;
Wet (dupe for Mac’s Viva Glam Rihanna), Flawless, Bunny and Heart on.
I don’t know if you notice or not, but all the names are pretty fun!! 😉
These lippie sticks also have some pretty good lasting power as well. Definitely worth the $5!!!
The lip liners
Colours – Wet, Bunny, Flawless, Heart on and Bull Chic.
I bought all the matching lip liners for the Lippie sticks plus an extra one to match a black lipstick I already own. These are creamy and easy to apply as well.
After I had already ordered my things, Colour pop released their blushes and soon will be releasing their highlighters. Both are said to have that cream/powder texture that the shadows have. They cost just a bit more($8) and bigger then the shadows. I will definitely be making another order to get my hands on some of these. 😉 or if anyone wants to give them to me as a gift I would love them forever. 😉

Hope Everyone has a very Happy Monday and a great week!
