Much like new clothing and accessories, I'm always on the hunt for new makeup!
If you've learned anything from reading my blog, you know that I love saving money. So, I am always interested in budget friendly brands, and of course sales. A few weeks ago Colourpop Cosmetics was hosting a sitewide sale, and after months of hearing nothing but good things about Colourpop I finally placed my first order!
Colourpop, based out of LA, is an extremely reasonably priced cosmetics line including products that I would easily pay full price for- but at 20% off I was eager to jump on the band wagon
Here are some of my thoughts on my purchases:
Super Shock ShadowsColourpop has an amazing selection of eye shadow colors in a variety of finishes, so many that I probably had 3 times the amount that I actually purchased sitting in my cart by the time that I was ready to check out! After much deliberation, I ultimately settled for neutrals that could be easily mix-and-matched and a couple of 'burgundy' shades.
Overall I have quickly fallen in love with the Super Shock Shadows. The texture of these pigments is incredibly smooth and nothing like I have ever experienced... Almost like they are equal parts cream, gel, and powder. They are best applied with your finger or a flat synthetic brush for the most pigment and opacity. Each shadow is regularly priced at $5, which is a price I can totally get behind.
As for pigmentation, the swatches above were applied with my fingers.
Super Shock Cheek Highlight
With sunny days comes the desire for illuminated skin... so I couldn't place an order without adding at least one of the Colourpop highlights to my cart! Their Super Shock Cheeks came in another broad selection of shades to choose from, I opted for a color that would be ideal for everyday use.
The highlights come in the same packaging and formula as the shadows, but are larger in size (a little over 2 times larger). This particular shade (Lunch Money) is a pretty light gold with just enough shimmer. The best part? They are only $8!
