ColourPop Collection 2016

ColourPop Collection

This last week I recorded my entire ColourPop Collection withColourPop Collection swatches, descriptions, and application. ColourPop has some very affordable, pigmented products. Dissapointing products have been tossed so my demo is products I thoroughly enjoy. From Super Shock Shadow to Lippie Stix, I have tried and enjoyed a lot of ColourPop products.

Conclusions

  • Most “Metallic” shadows are too creamy and spread on my eyes. I have had the best luck with dark colors–pastels and light “metallic” shades do not work for me. Metallic shadows are a hit or miss for me–sometimes they are nothing but glitter and a slippery, sheer base color (Eye Candy & Flipper.)
  • Their Ultra Metallic Shadows are so good that if they came out with any new color in an ultra-metallic finish, I would want it! They dry down better than metallic shadows, they stay put, and they are highly metallic & have a liquid-metal look to them that I love.
  • The Pearlized shadows I have are gorgeous. I only have 2 light-toned shades and they are slightly sheer. This gives them an ethereal glow on the eyes. They are described as “duochrome” but they have a very slight color shift compared to other duochromes.
  • I will use the two Matte shadows I have but I would mostly likely not purchase any more. They are weakly pigmented and apply patchy. They are beautiful colors but they don’t last long on my eyes.
  • The Super Shock Cheek Highlighters are beautiful. The lighter shade I own (Monster) was formulated for lighter skin tones and I can only use it during the winter months. Both shades I have do not have great staying power but I really like them.
  • Their Lippie Stix are okay. I prefer the liners. The Lippie Stix drag a little on the lips (I only have 2 matte shades currently but I have tried other finishes.) The Lippie Stix also smell a little bit like Play Dough to me? There are other affordable lipsticks I enjoy more (Jordana, Coastal Scents, BH Cosmetics) but if I saw a new beautiful shade I wouldn’t be deterred from purchasing it.
  • The Lippie Stix & Liners of the same name may be two very different but complimentary colors. I like the shade of the Rayezor liner way more than the lipstick! When I ordered them I had seen the swatch for the Ultra-Matte StingRaye and that was the actual color I wanted. 🙂
  • I am completely satisfied with my Gel Colour purchases. The gel pots are long lasting, I can use them as liner or an eye base, they dry down nicely and they have amazing pigmentation. The liners are similarly satisfying. I really appreciate the two metallic liners I have–they are bright, shiny, and metallic but dry down completely. The matte liner I have applies creamy but dries down well. I haven’t tried their new brow products because I use my brown matte eyeliner (Stomper) on my brows & it doesn’t budge. (I apply it with a brush.)

If you have never tried a powder ColourPop product, it is worth mentioning that they are all cream-to-powder texture. They are very soft and bouncy. The eyeshadow and cheek products are packaged individually because the product will dry out without a tight seal on the lid. ColourPop is a cruelty-free brand and many of their products are vegan. ColourPop can only be ordered through their website at this time. Shipping is a flat $4.99 rate but they offer free shipping on orders over $30. It takes 1-2 two weeks for me to receive my package and everything has always been securely shipped with no issues. ColourPop does not accept returns but will replace damaged items.
