A while back I shared this ColourPop purchase in a collective haul. I’ve had some time to test these out have been loving them. I purchased the shadows ‘Girly’ and ‘Lala’ and the liners ‘Call Me’ and ‘Get Paid’. Each item is only $5US and the shipping was very reasonable (~$5US as well). I also had a $5 off coupon code which you can find easily online.
ColourPop has exploded all over YouTube and on social media over the last year. Their products are famous for being really good and really affordable. The brand is also cruelty free! They aren’t available in store unfortunately, but that’s likely why the products are so affordable- less retail cost to the company. The eyeshadows are an interesting cream/powder texture and the eyeliners are a gel formula.
-Pigmentation is AMAZING for both the eyeliner and eyeshadow
-Each product is very long lasting
-Packaging is nice, not cheap in appearance
-The eyeshadow MUST be sealed tightly or else it will dry out
-Eyeshadows don’t apply well with a brush, you must use your fingers to apply
-Eyeshadow packaging is a tiny bit on the bulky side.
I really really love these. As soon as I swatched them I was like whoa pigment! The shade ‘Girly’ is the perfect eyelid and inner corner highlight! The only drawbacks are if you want to get good colour payoff, you need to apply with your fingers and then you can blend with a brush. Applying with a brush (dense and less dense) caused a lot of the shadow to just stick to the brush and not my eye. Creating a precise crease with these could be a bit difficult. Also, if you aren’t careful in sealing the shadows the formul can dry out.
Creme gel eyeliners: 5/5!
I’m so impressed with these eyeliners. For such a low price they glide on like a dream and even last for ages on my waterline! I don’t think I could ever buy a high end eyeliner knowing how great and affordable these are.
Overall I’m very impressed with Colourpop! The price is right, the products are awesome, and they have a HUGE range of shades across all of their products. I will definitely be repurchasing.
