I am back with a post I am very excited about, my
all time favorite Colourpop products!
Now I have been a LOYAL customer for almost two years now since I came across a
video of KathleenLights on YouTube, talking about her collaboration with the
brand. My first purchase was her collaboration with brand where she created her
Lumiere lippie stick and pencil. I loved the color and the formula but unfortunately
the color did not look that great on my skin tone so I gave it to one of my
best friends. Although the color wasn't for me, I feel in love with the brand
and made another purchase.
Throughout the last year and half, I have mad
numerous purchases from one of my favorite brands, and have accumulated quite a
lot of products, (it is slightly excessive). From all those purchases I have
came to love some products and I am here to share my love for these products so
you all can check out with wonderful brand.
First, I want to give you all a little background
on the brand before you go make a purchase. So Colourpop is based out of
California and they ship all over the U.S. and now international! They are cruelty
free, and they just a wonderful brand. With every purchase they send a little
hand written personalized note and it's the cutest thing. Now on to my
Finally here are my favorites! One of the favorite
products from Colourpop, are their eye shadows. They are so creamy and
pigmented it is unreal. They have an amazing color range, and all different
types of finishes. Below is a picture of my favorite shadows; from left
to right they are Bandit, Game Face, Drift, Sequin, and La La. They are my
absolute favorite colors by the brand; they are gorgeous and have amazing
Bandit is a perfect warm tone matte brown that
works amazing as a crease color, or as a base color, as I like to use it. Game
Face, is a beautiful shimmery copper color it looks like melted pennies and
it's gorgeous. One of my all time favorite colors ever, it glides on like a
dream and it is so build able. You can make it super intense or make it more daytime,
whatever your little heart can tend. My next favorite is Drift, an incredible cranberry
color. When I first saw this I was blown away, I have never seen such a
gorgeous shimmery cranberry. This color is ideal for the holidays, you can
blend it with reddish browns or you can go intense and pair it with a black
matte shadow and create a smoky cranberry look. This color is versatile. The
next color is one of my more recent purchases and it has quickly become one of
my favorites Sequin. A beautiful shimmery metallic rose gold eye shadow. This
color can be more daytime or glam whichever one it truly works for both looks.
This color is more rose than my next favorite, Sequin has tiny flicks for
silver glitter in it and it makes the color super intense. This color can be
worn by itself or you can throw any color in your crease and be on your way.
Lastly, but certainly not least is my favorite color of them all La La, a rose
gold shimmery shadow more on the gold side. This color is like melting rose
gold and putting it on your eyelids, absolutely gorgeous. This color I have
used the most of, it is my go to every day color its perfection.
My next favorites are the most popular item on Colourpop's website,
their lippie sticks, and ultra matte lipsticks. I have a SERIOUS obsession with
their lip products, and my makeup collection can corroborate that. Below are my
favorites from top to bottom, Frick n Frack, Tulle, Blood, LAX, and Avenue.
There are 3 ultra mattes, 1 ultra satin lip, and one lippie stick. My first
favorite Frick n Frack is a pink ultra satin lip, and the color is gorgeous.
The ultra satin lips are the product of if an ultra matte lipstick and a
regular lippie stick had a baby. They are creamy and pigmented; this color is
the most perfect everyday color. The next color Tulle, is a warm tone nude pink
and oh my goodness it is gorgeous. These type of colors are out of my color
range but I fell for this gorgeous color when I first wore it. These ultra
mattes dry down fast and they are comfortable to wear if you wear a lip balm
under them. This color can be worn day to night and you do not need to retouch
it throughout the day. My next favorite is Blood, the ultra matte lippie
stick, now these were their first lip products and one of my favorites. They do
not dry down completely matte which is okay because that makes them more comfortable
to wear. This color is a blood red hence the name and it is perfect when you
are feeling a little vampy, it is perfect. It's not too dark so those of you
who are afraid of a red lip try this one out you won't be disappointed. Now
sticking with my favorite color range, reds my next favorite is LAX an ultra
matte lipstick. This color is the PERFECT dark vampy lip, it is dark and it is
beautiful. If you are feeling deep and dark reach for this color, and it is
very comfortable to wear. I love mixing this color with my next favorite
Avenue. My last favorite is Avenue, a classic red lip that is gorgeous for any occasion
and it adds the finishing touches to any look. So many people will be able to
pull this color off, mix this color with LAX or your favorite deep red and you
have the perfect vampy lip color.
