A few weeks ago Colourpop had another BYOP (build your own palette) sale where you could order a custom palette at a discounted price. I have enjoyed the pressed eyeshadows that I have ordered from them in the past so I thought it would be fun to build a palette of my own. I very rarely order single shadows so I spent a lot of time thinking about what shades I would want in my palette. I think the results were a very ‘me’ palette… a mix of neutrals and colourful shades. It’s also 50/50 mattes and shimmers which is what I like to see in a palette.
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?
Hi guys! If you’ve been here before, you’ll know that I love Colourpop! A few weeks ago they had a free international shipping promo with no minimum so I took that as an opportunity to order a few items. I decided to stick to products I haven’t tried of theirs, so I picked up a highlighter and a few of their gel eye liners! Items that I have had my eye on, but previously had been sidetracked by a wealth of lip products. As of writing this post, I haven’t tried these products on my face yet so in this post you’ll hear my first impressions from swatching them. I’ll do some full reviews once I’ve familiarized myself with everything, and of course, you’ll probably see them in a makeup look or two before that 😉
Colourpop | Hippo Highligher
I’ve had my eye on Colourpop’s highlighters for quite some time but when I saw the shade Hippo, I finally decided to take the plunge. This icy lavender shade is very unique to my collection and I can’t wait to wear it. The texture is similar to Colourpop’s eye shadows in that they have the unique spongey/creamy texture. My swatch does not do it justice!
Hi guys! I absolutely love receiving my Colourpop orders! Their packaging is cute, the hand-written note is a nice touch and the products are always amazing! Best of all, I know I didn’t break the bank when I placed my order. I adore and support KathleenLights on YouTube so I knew when she did a second collection with Colourpop that I had to get my hands on it. Continue reading
