Giving Colourpop a trial run...Colourpop's been on my radar ever since it started gaining hype online, but I never made an order until one day I saw they were doing free international shipping. Why not? Colourpop is actually surprisingly cheap, but is it worth the hype? I've picked up a few items to test - a highlighter, an eyeshadow and a lip product!
Poison Lippie Stix
The first thing I have to say about this product is the shade looks a little different in real life than it does online. It could be my skin tone, but this doesn't look like the red brick I imagined - it's the spitting image of Rimmel 107 if you know that. So while I am a little disappointed about the shade, the formula of this is a winner. It doesn't feel drying on the lips at all, like some matte formulas can. It's not super, super matte but I'd take that over flaky, gross looking lips any day. I'd love to know if you've tried these and what shades you have? I'm thinking I'd like to try a more wearable every day shade next time.
Weenie Super Shock Shadow
I knew I wanted to try out an eyeshadow that I could wear on its own all over the lid - of course I went for a coppery, rosy shade. The melty formula of these is so nice and easy to apply. They do have a bit of a unique texture, being somewhere in between a cream and a powder. I have to say this does look quite different on the lid than it does in the pan - but it's metallic city and I love it. I haven't tested out the staying power of this yet but so far this gets a thumbs up.
Lunch Money Super Shock Highlighter
Believe it or not, I don't own many highlighters. I'd love to have more in my stash, but I never know quite what to buy since there's many to choose from. The formula of this highlighter is pretty much identical to the super shock shadows, meaning it melts into the skin best applied with fingers. It's hard to go heavy handed with this one, as I find it achieves a subtle result. I'd say this would be described as a light champagne gold colour and rest assured it looks pretty flattering on my pale skin tone. I'm yet to work out the best way to apply this, but fingers are my go to right now.
