Two makeup looks featuring Colourpop

It’s been two weeks since getting my Colourpop products in the mail, and I’m still excited about them! I promised to share some looks and opinions on them, so let me get it out of the way and say that overall, I’m impressed. Surprisingly, the blushes are my favorite. Hot damn are they pigmented. I struggle to find a way to apply them that isn’t “too much”. They may not look over-the-top in these pictures, but unlike most blushes I use, they actually show up in photographs, which is something I’ve complained about before. Let it be noted that I did pick out two of the absolute brightest shades they offer, so I’m sure a more natural look can be achieved with colors that aren’t neon magenta or tangerine.

The Super Shock shadows are also really, really nice. I’m only using one of the shadows (in the first look), but both of the ones I have are lovely. They are easy to apply, blend, and sheer out, but you can also easily pack on more color for more intensity. The colors I picked out have almost a duo-chrome effect, which I like since I don’t have many other shadows that offer something similar.

The Lippie Stix are where I have mixed feelings. They’re very pigmented and easy to apply, and the scent is pleasant. Staying power and wear are where I was a little let down. I do find that they settle into lip lines and fade sort of quickly. They are also a bit drying, and leave my lips flaky by the end of the day. I will say that these are things I struggle with when it comes to most lipsticks, so YMMV. For $5 each, I really can’t complain that much as they’re cheaper than most lip products at the drugstore are these days.

Keep scrolling for my two makeup looks. In the first look, I used a bit of green shadow on the lower lash line to emphasize the green sparkle in the Colourpop shadow on top. I really like how it turned out paired with the deep berry color of the Lippie Stix in LBB. In the second look, I did something warmer and springier, AND I USED FALSE LASHES FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER OMG. Seriously though, the application is not perfect, as you can probably see, but it was sooo much less scary than people make it out to be. I was so excited that I actually did it without getting the lash stuck to my eyebrow that I forgot to tightline, but anyway, I really like how fresh and dewy the second look is.
