Colourpop Haul #2!
Earlier this year I posted a Colourpop haul, and if you read that post, you probably aren't surprised that another order was made and lo and behold - it's time for haul #2! Colourpop products are super reasonably priced (drugstore pricing) and this brand is ALL the rage lately. You can only buy Colourpop online, and I'd highly recommend you place an order! They have lippies, eyeshadows, highlighters, and more in every color you can imagine and it won't break the bank!
Here's what I just recently purchased...
The first product I got is one of Colourpop's Ultra Matte Lip colors in the shade Trap ($6). Trap is described as "greige", or a gray beige color. Greige is freakin' everywhere this fall. I've been intrigued since I saw this color, and it is quite a sight to behold. I'm still figuring out how to best wear it, as I feel like it kind of makes me looks sick?? It might be better on tanner skin than pale skin like mine - but I'm going to keep experimenting with it.
As the name suggests, this color is extremely matte and dries to a velvet look on the lips. It will dry your lips out like no other, but you can easily wear a gloss over it if you need a boost of moisture.
Clueless is another Ultra Matte Lip color, described as a dusty mauve pink. This is a really beautiful neutral shade, perfect for work or a night out. Again, it'll dry your lips out, but top it with a gloss and you're good to go!
The last lip product I got is a Lippie Stix in the shade Lumiere ($5), a custom color created by YouTuber KathleenLights. Lumiere is my favorite shade of the three, more of a dusty mauve color that is so wearable for any occasion. I absolutely love this color! Lippie Stix are creamy, like a normal lipstick. They wear really well and won't dry your lips out.
Lastly, I got an eye shadow in the shade Mixed Tape ($5). Mixed Tape is a grey-ish taupe color with a pearl finish. If you have never tried ColourPop's eyeshadows, you totally should. They have the most interesting texture, very soft and kind of creamy (but not creamy?) -- it's so hard to explain! They do tend to crease on me, but I love the shades enough that I don't care.
Have you tried anything from Colourpop? What should I buy next? Let me know!
