Colourpop Haul & Review

Hi Guys & Dolls!

I know I've been away for a while, but i'm back and I plan to blog at least once a week! So lets see how that goes! 

I wanted to talk about my recent haul and experience with shopping from Colourpop! I've seen the brand everywhere and literally fallen in love with their eyeshadows after seeing how pigmented they are. While browsing their site, i realised that their eyeshadows are only $5 each, which is incredible and very affordable! I decided to purchase a few eyeshadows, liquid lipstick and eyeliner.


So I ordered 9 eyeshadows, 2 liquid lipsticks and 1 eyeliner. My order took 7 days from ordering to arrive into the UK, which i thought was incredibly fast and very impressive! The only downside is when it came to receiving my package, I had to pay for customs handling fee, which if I recall accurately, was around £18. Which was nearly half of my original order....

I suggest, if ordering from Colourpop, definitely do a big order or order with a friend to make the customs fee worth it. Right! on to my goodies...

 - Eyeshadows from L- R: Sugar, Melrose, Shameless, Hammered, Coconut, Drift, Dance Party, High Rise and Game Face.

With Flash

Without flash

I found the eyeshadows SO pigmented and smooth. They were very easily blendable. The instructions from colorpop say to apply with your fingers, however I use a brush and I think they work just as well. I'm not really into applying make up with my fingers so I prefer to use brushes and I think they work very well.

I definitely want to order more colorpop eyeshadows as I LOVE them, and they are so affordable. It just sucks to have to pay so much in customs fees! Colorpop do something about this please!!

My Verdict: 9/10

L - R: More Better , LAX

I finally picked up the very popular LAX and It is such a beautiful dark red colour! More Better is a deep fuschia pink. I'm not really a fan of deep pink lipsticks, but this colour is definitely pretty and something i could wear on holiday. The coverage of the liquid lipsticks is incredible. They are very very matte and last all day long even with eating and drinking. I will be honest, they can be a little bit difficult to remove. I like my lipsticks to come off with a single swipe, and these definitely don't, but for the price they are definitely worth it.

My Verdict: 7/10

This next buy has unfortunately been a bit of a disappointment. This eyeliner has a waxy formula and for someone with very watery eyes, I just can't wear it! It's not dark enough and it slides off my eyes really easily! I don't think I'll be buying any more colourpop eyeliners. They just aren't it for me! 

My Verdict: 0/10

Here's a look I did wearing Colourpop 'LAX' liquid lipstick WITHOUT a lip liner!
