Colourpop haul round 2.

Colourpop haul

Following on from my first ever Colourpop haul, free international shipping on any amount became available, and of course I couldn’t resist. I made 6 orders (yes, I have a problem) so ended up picking up quite a bit, so today I thought I would share these with all with you.

Colourpop pressed powder eyeshadows

The first thing I knew I wanted to pick up was some of their Pressed Powder Eyeshadows having heard such great things. Instead of choosing the usual colours I decided to go for mostly colours I don’t have in my collection, such as purples, yellows and oranges.

I went for 8 single eyeshadows in the end and the Lo-Key Pressed Powder palette. The shades I picked up were;

  • Take It Slow (part of Lo-Key) – a metallic champagne shade
  • I Owe You (part of Lo-Key) – a matte mid-tone orange shade
  • Running Late (part of Lo-Key) – a matte pale orange shade
  • Criss Cross (part of Lo-Key) – a matte brick orange red shade
  • Flowerboy – a matte Barbie pink shade
  • Stay Golden – a matte raspberry shade
  • Paper tiger – a matte mustard yellow shade
  • 143 – a matte deep violet shade
  • Double Date – a metallic lavender shade
  • Going Steady – a dark purple shade with specks of glitter
  • Come and Get It – a duochrome rose pink shade with specks of gold glitter
  • Boxer – a metallic deep bronze/brown shade

All of the pressed eyeshadows vary in formula, some shades are silky smooth but some are slightly chalky, but the colour payoff from all shades is absolutely amazing. Similar to the Super Shock Shadows these last very well too, plus there is little fallout. I definitely want to pick up some more shades at some point.

Colourpop super shock shadows

After falling in love with their Super Shock Shadow’s in my first haul, I decided to pick up another 3 and make the most of the 3 eyeshadows for $10. I went for 3 formula’s I hadn’t tried before.

The first shade I had to pick up was Crenshaw, a gorgeous warm matte brown shade that I absolutely love. I wasn’t expecting to like this from the swatches I saw online but after hearing quite a few different people rave about it I wanted to try it, and I am so glad I did. It is the perfect crease shade that works with a variety of looks. If I’m being lazy it also works great all over the lid on its own.

The second shade I went for was Fantasy, a pigment Super Shock Shadow. This is an incredibly bright neon pinky purple shade that is also amazing. It is a lot more pink than it looks in the pan, and has slight sparkles within which catch the eye. I’ve been loving playing around more with colours so thought this would be a great addition, but if you’re not so sure it is actually a lot less scary than I was expecting.

The final shade I went for was Muse, an ultra-metallic dusty rose colour, another shade I adore. I love using this as an every day shade, when I want to add something extra. It is one I have had many compliments on and one I can see me reaching for constantly.

As I found in my first haul the Super Shock Shadow formula lasts incredibly well, and these shades are no exception. I can easily apply this in the morning and not have to worry about them fading by the end of a working day, even without primer. I definitely recommend them if you haven’t had a chance to try them.

I also picked up one of the Super Shock Blushes in the shade Between the Sheets. This is the same formula as the Super Shock Shadows, and similarly lasts just as long. It is incredible and amazes me that I can put this blusher on in the morning and when I get home from work it will still be there. The shade is a gorgeous neutral shade, a beige-pink that compliments any look. 

Colourpop ultra blotted lip

The final bits I couldn’t resist were another three of their liquid lipsticks, as they also had a promotion on where you got 3 lipsticks for $12, meaning each lipstick essentially cost $4 each!

I knew I wanted to pick up a couple of their Ultra Blotted Lips, a new formula for Colourpop. I went for the shades Doozy, a warm rose, and Slide, a candy pink. The formula is incredibly unique and quite difficult to describe, it is unlike anything I have ever tried before. They are sheer but buildable, and last incredibly well. I have been loving sweeping one coat across my lips to add a little something without having to really think about it. They dry to a matte finish and are 95% transfer proof; I say 95% as they are not completely kiss proof.

Having loved the formula of their Ultra Satin Lips in my first Colourpop haul, I picked up another shade, Alyssa, a dusty nude rose shade. Just like the other two Satin Lips I have tried from Colourpop, I found this shade to be incredibly comfortable, not drying on my lips and to last really well. It works well to compliment a lot of different makeup looks.

And, that is the end of my second Colourpop haul. As I have purchased quite a bit I haven’t done swatches, but if you would like to see these please let me know in the comments below. I am so happy with everything I have picked up, and can’t wait to pick up even more another time. I am falling head over heels for this brand. 

Have you tried Colourpop before? Is there anything I need to add to my wishlist?
