I know I wanted this post to go up last week, but life definitely got in the way and things didn’t turn out the way that I would’ve liked it to go. BUT I finally got around to post this review.
Here is the review that I have on the Colour Pop Cosmetics purchase that I made a couple of weeks ago. This will definitely be a full review because I’ve had all of these for almost a month now.
First I’ll start with the matte super shock eye shadow that I purchased. It was in the color “Doe-A-Deer”, which I would definitely call a very dark, almost black violet. I’ve heard people rave about the texture of the Colour Pop eyeshadows and I finally know what they’re talking about. The texture of these eyeshadows is very different, it’s almost bouncy in the packaging. “Doe-A-Deer” goes on the eye super smooth and blend out perfectly. This is a very intense shade and very pigmented, so I will definitely be purchasing more of these.
Now, onto the Lippie products. I bought all Lippie Stix in the shades “Flawless”, “Heart On”, and “Grind”. “Grind” and “Heart On” are perfect spring and summer shades, and “Flawless” is definitely an all year round shade. “Flawless”, is a satin finish lipstick and a beautiful blue-toned violet color. “Flawless” is a satin finish and goes on super smooth. It doesn’t settle into the lines in your lips and sits on the surface, making it a longwearing color and moisturizing. This lipstick doesn’t have a super shiny or glossy appearance to it, so this is definitely the only satin lipstick that I have that I actually like. “Flawless” is a lovely color that I will definitely be wearing year round.
“Grind” is a lighter purple and it is my second favorite color that I bought. I can’t wait until spring comes because I think this will definitely be one of my staple colors. It goes on just the same as “Flawless” and I love it. It’s a little more matte than the satin finish of “Flawless”, and “Heart On” is the same way. “Heart On” is definitely a bright pink color. Although it’s a pretty color, I don’t see myself wearing it by itself. It will definitely have to be mixed with something for me to love it.
I wore “Flawless” out to lunch with my mom and sister and ate and drank everything that they did, and my lipstick was still there. It didn’t budge at all and looked just as perfect and intense as it did when I first put it on. Now, it isn’t a non-transferable lipstick. It definitely was on my fork and straw, so it didn’t pass the kiss test, but that is something I am definitely okay with.
One other thing that I noticed with all of the Colour Pop Lippie Stix is that they go on kind of different in comparison to my other lipsticks. It is somewhat of a waxy kind of consistency at first. It isn’t a bad feeling, but you can definitely tell that this is a long wearing lip product. However, after a while, that waxy/tacky feeling goes away and it’s nothing but smooth goodness. Two of the lipsticks that I got are matte formulas, Heart On and Grind. I’ve noticed Colour Pop’s matte Lippie Stix aren’t a drying matte. They are just a moisturizing matte color that doesn’t have a sheen or gloss to it. So if you want a matte lipstick and don’t want it sinking into the cracks in your lips and looking gross, then Colour Pop is just for you.
You receive 1 gram of Lippie Stix which is a lot considering the price and the quality. For the Super Shock Eyeshadow you also get your money’s worth. So this was definitely a good deal overall when I think about the purchase as a whole.
I love how the little handwritten notes are included with the products. It adds a little personality that you don’t see much of with companies nowadays.
