I recently got an email through from Colourpop Cosmetics, offering $5 international shipping for one weekend only. And as you can see.. I obviously jumped at the chance. Colourpop a Los Angelo's based company founded in 2014 has been huge on the blogasphere and Youtube scene for a year or so now, the likes of Desi Perkins, Lustrelux, Nikkietutorials and obviously Kathleen Lights all rave about the products. The thing i like most about these products is that they are seriously budget friendly, with each product being around $5 - not only this but the products themselves are not tested on animals.
Below are the products i picked up.
The 'Where The Light Is' eyeshadow quad was the first thing I put in my basket. These four shadows designed by the YouTube beauty Kathleen Lights are the perfect foursome to create that statement Autumnal smokey eye every blogger dreams of.
Clockwise starting from the back;
Glow - A beautiful vanilla base shade with a matte finish
Kathleenlights - A gorgeous golden copper with a pearlised finish
Blaze - The winner out of the four for me, a coco bronze sprinkled with multi dimensional glitter and a metallic finish
Cornelious - A mid tone warm brown / caramel with a matte finish
I have to admit, these are the most insanely pigmented shadows i have ever used. The colour pay off is amazing for such a cheap product. They are very easily blended and do not crease, they are so creamy that they almost feel like a cream shadow when swatched.
Next up, after much deliberation i went for 3 Lippie Stix and matching Lippie Pencils. I went for two matte's and one gloss finish and love them all so much! They are so easy to apply and work really well as a combo.
The colours i went for are as follows;
Another perfect shade from the Kathleenlights collection, this product is a dusty mauve shade and my favourite out of the three. It has a matte finish, but doesn't feel drying - it is really easy to apply and feels comfortable throughout the day. The pencil makes a perfect base for the lippie stix.
I wanted a new red shade for Autumn but not a dark berry shade, more of a bright red channel. Again, this is another matte finish and wears and applies well like lumiere on the lip. It is such a vibrant red shade and I love how bright it is.
This lighter nude pink has a gloss finish, this super sheer gloss looks gorgeous on it's own our paired with the matching lippie stix. I must say, this is the only one which doesn't match perfectly - the lippie pencil is so much more brown than the stix. Even though it appears browner in the swatch when paired together with the stix it's a truly gorgeous combo!
In regards to getting to the items, Colourpop now do international shipping. I managed to get a special offer of $5 but I think it's normally quite expensive - I then wasn't expecting the hefty customers charge of nearly £15.00 on top (so just bare in mind when ordering). However, it still made the items I bought around £5.00 per product, which is incredibly cheap for the quality that your getting!
What would you recommend from Colourpop, are there any products you love?
