Colourpop haul + swatches!

If you read even one beauty blog, or watch just one beauty YouTuber, and that's all you ever dip your toes in to the beauty world... I'm betting you've still heard of ColourPop. I feel like I can't click around the internet without seeing it just about everywhere. And while sometimes that much hype can be suspect and not to be trusted, believe me when I say that this whole ColourPop phenomenon is SO worth every bit of hype.

I caved recently to see what all the fuss was about, and oh my gosh, you guys... I wish I would have bought even more! I purchased 4 eyeshadows and 2 lippie stix and I've got swatches of it all for you!

Where do I even begin with these eyeshadows? For starters... each one of these is just $5. Yes.... FIVE DOLLARS. I was pleasantly surprised when I rubbed my finger in my first one, too - it has the most bizarre consistency that I wasn't expecting at all! It's sort of a bouncy cream powder. It doesn't apply wet at all, but it's certainly not your typical powder eyeshadow. You have to make sure to seal these babies up tight when you're done using them though, otherwise they will lose that bouncy goodness and dry out on you. These are so easy to work with, they blend like a charm, and they have excellent lasting power. 

 I am honestly going to buy so many more colors before ColourPop realizes they should be charging way more than $5 per shadow, because I have a feeling that day will come now that they're becoming more established.

Bill is a matte plum-pink shade, perfect for defining your crease line. Downtown is a matte taupe brown. Girl Crush is described as a mid-tone matte gray, however to me it looks purple? And I Heart This is a silvery taupe with multi-colored glitter.

The two lippie stix I got are Bichette, a matte deep red wine color, and Fetch, a mid-tone pink with a satin finish. I absolutely adore Bichette, but I don't know how I feel about Fetch on my skin tone. Either way, these have excellent color pay off and staying power, but they can be a little drying so you may need a gloss after you use these.

I'm completely enamored with ColourPop. It's taking all of my willpower not place another order right this second, that's how good it all is. I can't remember the last time I've been this excited about a makeup brand, but mark my words.... you'll be hearing a LOT about ColourPop from here forward. So so good. 

What are your favorites from ColourPop? Let me know so I can add them to my next order!


  1. Not sure if you are a MAC user, but do you know if Girl Crush is a dupe for Copperplate? They seem the same/very similar to me. I want to try ColourPop and was drawn to Girl Crush, but realized it seemed familiar, then it hit me it reminded me of Copperplate which I already own. What is your opinion? Thanks! =)

    1. I don't own Copperplate, but from the swatches I've seen, they do appear to be very similar! The one for sure difference will be texture of the two eye shadows. If you've tried Colourpop shadows, their texture is creamy without being a cream? Hard to explain, but very cool. :)

    2. Thank you so much for your reply! =)
