Ah ColourPop – the LA based brand that has taken the internet by storm!
They’re fast becoming the most sought after eyeshadow/lipstick brand out there. I picked up some of their Lippie Stix and a few powder products which I’ll feature soon.
Sadly, they don’t ship to the UK but fear not, there are ways around it – via mail forwarding services from the US. I used MyUS who do a personalised shopping service which means they order into their depot and then forward onto you. It cost me an additional £30 for this and postage but considering how affordable the products are, it seemed worthwhile. I ordered some other things in my box as well as my ColourPop order so it worked out quite well.
I picked up three shades to begin with – I wasn’t sure what shades I wanted but I knew I couldn’t go far wrong with some brights and a nude. I went for Rocket (a soft pinky coral satin), Chi-Chi (a bright true orange matte) and Frida (a warm mid-tone nude pink satin). There are 6 different finishes with a huge range of shades. They are nicely packaged with an easy to use twist-up mechanism and secure lid which is always a plus.
The shades swatch brilliantly opaque right away and I absolutely love them! For just $5.00 which is just over £3.00, they’re an absolute bargain and they’re such high quality. I wore Chi-Chi today and I loved the bright pop it gave my lips and it lasted really well considering I ate and drank all day. I did top up the colour once or twice and layering the colour wasn’t a problem at all. I can’t wait to use the satin finish ones this week!
Hopefully, it won’t be a matter of time until we are able to freely get our hands on their products without the need for a mail forwarding service. I’m definitely keen on picking up some more shades and perhaps trying the new (and sold out) Ultra Matte Lips!
Have you tried anything from Colour Pop?
