Another Pop of Colour





After my first ColourPop order happened at the beginning of May, I knew it was not going to be long before I felt it necessary to make another one. I grabbed a few different products to try this time and also some more of my current favourite eyeshadows. I've had these for less than a week but I've already had the time to try everything out so without further ado, here's my haul and first impressions...

Super-Shock Shadows in On The Rocks and Nillionaire-Oh my, some more bronze-y eyeshadows. I'm so predictable when it comes to eyeshadow colours. These ones are actually a bit more on the taupe-y side of things but I am okay with that. On the Rocks is a gold-bronze with gold and violet glitter. I don't really think the violet glitter picks up on the eyes but you do get some shimmer there and it is a stunning shade. Nillionaire is similar but is more of a warm bronze shade. When I swatched this initially I was really disappointed but it seemed to look a lot better on the eyes. If you like neutral shimmers then these will be right up your street.

Lippie Stix in Frida and Lumiere-After seeing Liv's review of the Lippie Stix, I knew I'd have to try these at some point. I opted for Frida first because I bought the matching lip pencil last time and really liked that. Frida reminds me of Patisserie from Mac but with more pink tones and vibrancy to it. It's described as a satin finish and wears well on the lips but be prepared to reapply this throughout the day. Lumiere seems to be one of ColourPop's bestsellers and I can see why. It's your standard, Kylie Jenner-esque nude and reminds me a bit of Syrup, also from Mac. I was surprised to read that this is actually a matte finish because it doesn't feel or apply like a matte lipstick to the lips. However, it definitely did have decent lasting power without the dryness. I can see this colour becoming a fast favourite.

Blush in Get Leid-I considered getting one of the new highlighters from ColourPop but I was kinda overwhelmed by the selection and not too sure where to begin with choosing one so I opted for a cream blush. I currently don't own any cream blushers so I decided it was a justifiable excuse to add one to the collecton. Get Leid is a warm peach-toned blush. In fact it looks quite orange in the pan which scared me but it's much more natural looking on. I wore this on Friday night when I felt like death and it certainly livened up my complexion. As for lasting power, I forgot to pay attention to that but I'm pretty sure the colour hadn't faded too much after four or five hours of wear. 

*Have you hauled anything from ColourPop lately? What do you love from their lineup?
