ColourPop Mini Haul & Swatches

 

AFoodie-Fatties Series.png

Last week, I caved like the weak woman I am and placed an order on ColourPop’s website. By then, I missed the good deal of buy two eye shadows, get one free but I went ahead anyways because I don’t know the meaning of self control.

The truth is, I didn’t end up buying a lot since a lot of the colors I originally wanted were basically dupes for the Modern Renaissance palette. It took some time choose the ones that I want but with the help of trusty YouTube videos, I managed to narrow it down to colors I don’t really have in my collection.

Palette

I placed this order last week and apparently ColourPop brought back their buy 4 shadows and get one free palette deal today. So if you’re looking for an empty palette, head on over while I wallow in buyer’s remorse.

That said, the palette’s design is quite cute and aesthetically pleasing. It can hold up to 12 eye shadow pans and it closes shut with a magnetic click.

Pressed Shadows & Birthday Gift

So far, I am impressed with their pressed powders and will definitely buy more in the future. The shadows are pigmented and apply well onto the lid. There is a little of kick up, especially with my bouquet toss (but with this one I think mine might have been pressed badly).

From left to right:

  • Bouquet Toss
    •  A soft pink in a metallic finish
  • Come and Get It
    • An unique dual chrome in a metallic finish
  • The News
    • A nice rose color in a matte finish
  • I Owe You
    • A mid-tone orange that leans more on the peachy side in a matte finish
  • Paper Tiger
    • a beautiful mustard color to warm up the eyelids and has a matte finish

Since it was ColourPop’s three year anniversary, they also gave away a limited edition color in their Super Shock formula. The baby blue packaging is absolutely adorable!

I originally didn’t like the color from the swatch I saw online but I was really pleasantly surprised when I got it in the mail. Birthday cake is a metallic copper rose with tons of pink sparkles and shimmer. The formula is buttery soft and blends so easily.
