So! Colourpop! I did one order, then another because I loved them so much! 😋
The ultra-matte lippies are amazing and last for SO long- proof is that I put it on in the morning, drank a PSL, ate some dinner, and still wasn't all gone the next morning even after I had exfoliated my lips at night! 😂 Seesaw is a great pale pink with lavender tones- if you have cool undertones (not me) I definitely give it two thumbs up! Clueless was a bit darker than expected, but a beautiful dusty rose verging on mauve. 1st Base is a bright, punchy peach coral suitable for all skin tones. Solow is like Clueless, but with an oomph of extra pink.
The lippie stix are great as well, and come in a variety of finishes: matte, sheer, hyper-glossy,.... Crunch is sheer, and more like a subtle tinted balm. It doesn't last that long, which is to be expected, but it would be a wonderful flush of color for any skin tone. I didn't do swatches of Crunch because I feel it'd be too sheer, and also my laziness factor.
The lip pencils are mediocre- I'm pretty sure better ones could be found elsewhere around the same price, although the lip pencils are mainly there for convenience-"Hey you bought ___? That one has a matching lip pencil in ___!" And for $5, the amount of lip pencil product is quite dissapointing. Contempo is a FABULOUS color on me- I bought the pencil, but might buy the matching lippie stix as well.
ColourPop also has some limited-edition shades, but don't jump for joy just yet- their site has been down all day- my order originally said it cost $1- insane, and the changed to $13, and other such random numbers. I assume "More Better" will be a wonderful plum for fall and winter- better scoop it up, eh? Instigator looks a lot like Cluess on the site, so I might not get that. First Class isn't my color other, and nude shades aren't my thing.
Sign up for their newsletter and you'll receive $5 off- taking of shipping basically.
Their shipping isn't the best- they take about 2 business days to process the order and 4 to ship within the U.S. Their "handwritten notes" and other goodies inside the package are super cute though!
Have a lovely day! xoxo
