ColourPop Cosmetics Haul and Review

ColourPop Cosmetics was one of those brands I had been wanting to try for a long time! When they advertised that they were doing free international shipping (which is available for the rest of this year!) I couldn't help but treat myself to some of their products.
With there being sooo much to choose from I headed over to YouTube to see what people recommended and soon enough my basket was filled up.. it was all too easy! I ended up picking 4 of the Ultra Matte liquid lipsticks, 1 of the Lippie stix, 3 Super Shock Shadows, a Super Shock Sheen highlighter and an eyebrow pencil (which I forgot to photo..oops)


To start with, I love the packaging of the Ultra Matte Lips, it's so simple and I like that you can actually see the product


When I first swatched these I wasn't sure what to expect. Although they're hyped about A LOT across the beauty blogger realm, I was a little sceptic purely because of the price point which is just $6.00 each! But there is a very good reason why people have been shouting from the rooftops about these, because they really are amazing. The colour pay off is perfect, they do not go streaky and they do not budge - trust me, I literally had to scrub my arm with all sorts and it still left a mark!

Another great thing about the Ultra Matte Lips is that they aren't too drying and they don't crumble or transfer at all. Basically they are an all around great product and I think I need more..

Next is the Lippie Stix pen, you can see in the picture above how amazing colour is, and this product is so creamy and easy to apply. The colour lasts well but it does transfer a little when eating/drinking, but that isn't something that bothers me, especially when the Lippie Stix sell for just $5.00!


Next we have the eyeshadows. Seeing as I don't wear eyeshadow that often (it's definitely something I need to practice!) I went for some safe colours - ones that I figured would make me look less like I'd been punched in the face


Again the colour pay off is incredible with these little beauties, the texture is so creamy and they're really easy to work with as they blend like a dream!

Again these eyeshadows are just $5.00 each but you can also buy them in sets (and there are some really amazing ones!)

The same can be said for the highlight. I went for something with a gold undertone as I didn't have one like this yet, and I'm definitely glad that I did. This one is called Butterfly Beach, it's quite subtle as it isn't filled with glitter so it's definitely something that you can wear day to day but you can also build it up by adding a powder highlight over the top!


Finally I tried out the eyebrow pencil in the shade Taupe. It's a retractable pencil with a spoolie at the other end which is always a winner! I picked this up for when I'm at work - I love my ABH Dipbrow Pomade but it's a little much for work!

Have you tried any products from ColourPop yet? I think I might need to pick up a few more products, I've got my eyes on the Just Peachy Ultra Matte Lip set!
