REVIEW | COLOURPOP COSMETICS + SWATCHES

Based out of LA, ColourPop Cosmetics is a favourite among people who are in with the beauty trends of Instagram and following all the beauty gurus of Youtube. It’s known as an affordable alternative to many higher end products like the Kylie Lip Kits, and has also done multiple collaborations with inflencer personnels like Jenn Im and Alexis Ren. When I saw that there was free international shipping, I jumped right on that and ordered a few things to try for myself. With the price being so affordable, basically a drugstore equivalent, I wanted to see for myself if the formula and quality of the products were as good as many people claimed them to be. Call me skeptical, but how can products be that cheap and that good?! I’m the type of girl that when it comes to makeup and its a tried and true favourite, it’s very hard to make me stray away to try something new, price tag doesn’t matter if it makes my life easier. I’m a busy person who can’t be bothered with too much fuss on a day to day basis with complicated makeup so I like to have reliable products I can use on the go to look a little bit more put together.

For this order I decided to try a few different items to get an all around feel, focusing on items I could easily incorporate into my daily routine. I ordered some highlighters, liquid lipsticks (because that’s what ColourPop is hyped up about on those social media channels), a lip gloss, lip pencil and one of their new blotted lips. Upon opening the box, you’re greeted with a colourful patterned interior, a pamphlet booklet of the different types of products and a printed hand-written note with the items ordered wrapped under tissue paper. For the price I paid, I was impressed with the packaging as even when ordering items from Sephora (which is has a higher price range), you’re not greeted with the same un-boxing experience. Truly felt like it was a makeup Christmas morning!
