When I saw that Colourpop released a new Lux line of lipsticks, I was instantly intrigued. Seemed like a great time to place my first Colourpop order of 2018! Not only did I pick up a couple Lux Lipsticks I picked up a few other goodies that I’ve had my eyes on for awhile. What I love about Colourpop is that it is so budget friendly! I got all of the items pictured for under $50 USD (excluding shipping)! So let’s take a peak at what I picked up, shall we?
Colourpop | Lux Lipstick
The Lux Lipsticks have a creamy matte finish that is supposed to glide on like butter without feathering or bleeding. It sounds like they are also supposed to be long-wearing as well which you know I am all about. I chose the shades Pinkies Up (dusty-mid tone mauve) and Humble Pie (hot pink) to try out. I’m really excited to get these onto my lips and start testing them so that I can post a full review for you guys. The rose gold tubes are gorgeous and the stars embellished on the product itself is a nice touch. They really did pull out all the stops to make these look like a luxurious product, all for the low price of $7.00 USD! They are also both vegan and cruelty free!
Colourpop | Brushes
I’ve had my eye on Colourpop’s brushes since they introduced them awhile ago but have yet to order any until now. I chose the Small Shader Brush as it looks great for not only packing on the pigment but also for precision as well. It’s much smaller than my go-to shader brush (MAC 242). I also picked up their Large Shader Brush which is bigger than my go-to shader brush and based on the reviews looks like it works perfect with the Colourpop Supershock Shadows which I typically use my fingers for. The Supershock Shadows are more of a cream/powder hybrid with a unique texture and I find them difficult to apply with my current makeup brushes so I’m curious to see how this one will work out.
Colourpop x Kathleenlights | Dream St Pressed Powder Palette
You guys know I’m all about supporting Kathleenlights and her collaborations since they have all been perfection so I had to pick up her latest palette – Dream St. I love how this palette has a combination of neutrals and pops of colour. It contains a variety of finishes as well – matte, satin and metallic to amp up the versatility. I can’t wait to start playing with this palette, it looks perfect for creating some more colourful spring looks!
