Colourpop Haul – Warm Neutrals

20170204_095745

Haul!!! 💃 😀

I’ve been obsessively Googling Colourpop swatches for weeks now, in anticipation of placing my first order.  I’ve heard nothing but good things about this brand; and have been dying to try some of their products.  I finally settled on 5 Super Shock eyeshadow shades (retail for $5), a blush (retails for $8), and an Ultra Satin lippie (retails for $6).  I clearly gravitate towards warm neutral shades, but tried to pick colors that weren’t too similar. I didn’t see a ton of reviews with swatches on medium brown skin though.  So I just had to go out on a limb and hope the colors would be what I hoped for.  They were. 🙂

I went with On the Rocks, Boy Band, Animal, Weenie, Sequin, Bardot blush, and Lyin’ King Ultra Satin lippie (eyeshadows shown in this order in picture below – counterclockwise from top to bottom).

When I swatched each of these colors, I was really surprised by how soft and rich they were… they’re literally almost creamy to the touch.  They’re incredibly pigmented (even the blush), and when I went to wipe the swatches off with a wet paper towel, they didn’t budge! I had to use a makeup remover towelette and makeup remover to remove them.  That seems really promising! I haven’t actually worn them yet, but it seems they’ll be staying put all day when I do.

I swatched on bare skin, no primer.  The photo below is in natural light.

(I think the flash really captures the shimmery nature of Sequin and On the Rocks.)

Weenie is described as a true metallic rose gold.

Sequin is described as a metallic copper penny-like shade with mutli-dimensional glitter. 

Animal is described as an electric bright neon coral with a subtle flash of gold.

Boy Band is described as an ultra-metallic red copper. (There are swatches on various skin tones on the website for this one.)

On the Rocks is described as a vibrant true bronze with gold and violet glitter.  I think this shade may be new go-to. 😍  It’s a gorgeous neutral shade that’s really unique thanks to the subtle glitter.  It’s also on sale for $4 right now! 😀

Bardot is described as a  rusty red copper.  The pigmentation on this blush is pretty crazy.  I’ll have to be careful not to overdue it when I wear it. Lol.

Lyin’ King is described as a deep raspberry. From what I’ve heard, Colourpop Ultra Satin lippies are more of a creamy matte.  Based on my swatch, I’d agree.  It dried to a near matte finish, but still had some moisture to it.  I chose this because I don’t do well with very dry mattes.  I think the Ultra Satin is a good alternative for anyone that feels that way.

Someone hide my debit card so I don’t buy all of the things from Colourpop!!! 😘I’m in love! ❤ ❤ ❤

P.S. I had to wait all week until I was home during daylight hours to photograph my new goodies, and then it ended up being cloudy! Ugh. :-/  So pics aren’t quite as vibrant as I would have liked, but I believe all images are true to color.  Animal might be the only exception.  It’s a slightly brighter coral than shown in my swatches and a bit more powdery/matte than the other Super Shock shades I purchased.

I’ll definitely be ordering more products from Colourpop! ❤
