After my first order with Colourpop I knew that I would order from them again because I really loved the quality products. So when Colourpop was having a free shipping offer on all orders a couple days ago I decided to place an order and get a few of their fall items that caught my eye’s.
I got three items this time. An eye shadow, an ultra matte lip and one of their lip sets that contain three lip products. I love how Colourpop includes these cute corny note cards with each package (I also cheesy jokes!)
The Up and Away set contains Mama, Calypso, and Love Bug. Calypso is an Ultra Satin Lip and the other two are an Ultra Matte Lips. I only bought this kit because it was a steal ($15 for 3 instead of $18). I only wanted Calypso but after swatching the other two on my lips I decided to also keep Love Bug. I gave Mama to my sister because I’m not a fan of bright reds. I noticed that the application on both Mama and Love Bug wasn’t as easy to apply as the other Ultra Matte Lips that I own.
The other lippie I decided to get was Bianca. This color has been on my wishlist since I placed my last order. It’s soft mauve pink. It’s pretty similar to Calypso but it’s a matte and has a pink undertone.
I decided to try an eye shadow from Colourpop this time. I wanted a color that I could use in my inner corners so I went with Paisley. This was also part of one of Colourpop’s fall collections. It’s described as “Sheer golden ivory laced with tons of multi-colored sparkle in a Glitter Sheer finish”. I also kind of disappointed with this color because for some reason I was expecting an opaque highlighter colored with the reflex of glitter but instead I got a sheer shadow with tons of sparkle. It’s my fault though for not reading the description properly. It’s still a gorgeous eye shadow but it’s just not what I was hoping for.
Have you ordered anything from Colourpop recently?
