The Colourpop Buys: Part One



Colourpop's been an independent beauty brand I've liked and been impressed by since hearing about them on Shannon's channel and it's been a while since I made an order with them. When they had a little sale recently I decided to treat myself and picked up a few eye and lip products. Typical me right? It's hard to resist when they're so cheap and the shipping is free. Today we have part one of a two-part haul, featuring the blogger-enabled eyeshadow buy and the minis I couldn't resist...


Hello Kitty Puroland Set: The first of the lip colours here are; Tiny Chum, Milk Bottle and Mimmy which are all available separately as full sized shades. I actually wanted the minis because #1 minis are cute and #2 I am more likely to use them up and use them repeatedly. Milk Bottle and Mimmy are in Colourpop's ultra matte formula. Despite their matte quality they are so so comfy on the lips. I'd recommend applying them with a liner first just to keep things neat if you don't have a steady hand. Tiny Chum is in the ultra satin formula, which is a bit more comfortable on the lips. It just fades a bit faster which seems to be standard with lip products that don't dry down completely. All these colours are lovely but my pick of this trio is Milk Bottle, a mid tone pink. 

Eye Shadow in KathleenLights-Seeing this eyeshadow on Hayley's Instagram made me want it, that and it's been one of the shades I've wanted from Kathleen's range for a while now. This bright golden copper gives me Autumn vibes but it's so vibrant and lovely. It's so beautiful and is one of those shades which I imagine would complement every eye colour.


Eyeshadow in Cat Nap-This colour was a bit of an impulse buy as it was for a good cause and while I like it, I don't love it. Don't get me wrong, Cat Nap, an icy rose gold is a beautiful colour. Maybe I just have a dud one but I find because this contains chunkier glitter particles, it doesn't mesh well with my eyelids. Translation: My oily lids vanish it into oblivion. As I said, maybe I have a dud one, maybe it's just too hot in Auckland right now to really properly assess its longevity. It's just not my favourite Colourpop eyeshadow. 

Lipsticks in Lock Diary and Ribbon-The last of the colours from the Hello Kitty 'Puroland' set are both on the bolder side of things. Lock Diary, a vibrant fuschia is part of Colourpop's ultra satin lineup which may just be my new favourite lip product formula. Ribbon, a matte is an ultra rich, blue based red. Perfect for Taylor Swift fans and lovers of the fifties screen star look alike. I've not worn this colour yet, I feel like it requires a special occasion but no doubt you will hear about it if I end up liking it as much as I think I will.

-Have you tried anything from Colourpop before? What are your must-haves from their collection?
