Colour Pop have finally decided to offer international shipping, so of course I had to have myself a little haul. I actually did a joint order with my friend Callie, so we spilt the postage and customs charges.
Colour Pop charge a flat rate of $25 dollars to ship to the UK, and I think in total we were charged approximately £19 in shipping (bare in mind Callie ordered lots more than I did!). I just wanted to get the nitty gritty bit out the way first of all, I do think it’s worth the money if you are going to try a good amount of products from Colour Pop.
Now onto the fun stuff, the products! I already own a few of the Colour Pop eyeshadows, which I absolutely love. So it was inevitable I would get more eye shadows, but I also wanted to try products that were totally new to me.
I chose their Ultra Satin Lip in Echo Park. This product is a liquid lipstick, but with a slightly more comfortable Satin finish. They aren’t smudge proof like their matte counter part, but they are still very long wearing. The shade Echo Park is a classic nude, I would describe it as a more muted version of MAC Velvet Teddy.
The next product I chose was the Colour Pop Super Shock Cheek in the shade Birthday Suit. This blush has a similar formula to the eyeshadows, it’s almost mousse like in texture and I can’t wait to see how this looks on my skin. Birthday Suit is a rosy pink shade which I think would work well all year round.
When it came to picking my eyeshadow shades, it took me quite a while. There is such a wide range, from your standard neutrals to beautiful bright and bold colours. I decided to try the shade Wattles as I had seen Kathleen Lights mention this shade quite a lot in her videos. Wattles is a dusky rose shade with a subtle shimmer, which makes it very versatile.
I’ve been looking for a more frosty shade recently to use as an inner corner highlight – so the shade Tassel really stood out to me. It’s a frosty white shimmer which makes for a different inner corner highlight.
I’m considering filming a first impressions video using my Colour Pop products, so if you’d be interested in this please let me know in the comments below.
