As well as the adorable My Litte Pony palette I reviewed earlier on in the week, my latest ColourPop order included a few of their all-time bestsellers. If you’re new to ColourPop and don’t know where to start (I highly recommend grabbing the ‘Yes, Please!’ eyeshadow palette if it’s still available) browsing their collection of bestsellers is a great way to start. They can be found by clicking on your chosen category (highlighters, lipsticks etc) and are usually displayed in the top row or there’s a dedicated section that contains a selection of them here. I also love watching KathleenLights reviews on her YouTube channel for some inspiration.
Whenever I make a ColourPop order I always make sure to add to my Super Shock Shadow collection. They are undoubtedly my favourite ColourPop product. Every single little white pot I’ve bought I’ve adored. Each pan contains 2.1g of product and individually retails for $5 each. I ordered four of their best sellers including Lightning Bug (a glittery golden copper), Sequin (rosy penny copper with multi-dimensional glitter), Paradox (warm satin burgundy red) and Wattles (dusty beige pink satin).
The Super Shock Shadows have a creme-powder formula with a unique bouncy texture. It’s like putty or memory foam when you press your finger into it and feels almost damp. It’s recommended you place the lid back on very tightly after use as they have a tendency to dry out very quickly. Unfortunately, Lightning Bug (far left) was damaged when it arrived but the eyeshadow is mouldable so it was easy to press back into the pan. Each shade is beautiful, although I don’t quite understand the hype around Paradox. It’s not as pigmented as it appears in the pan but it’s buildable. The metallics are where the magic really happens…

I also ordered three lip products including the Ultra Glossy Lipstick in Fairy Floss, which I’ve already fallen head-over-heels with, and the shades Skimpy and Bound from their Lippie Stix collection. Fairy Floss is a high shine gloss with a sheer pale beige tint. I love it because it looks beautiful on its own or with literally every nude lipstick I own. It’s non-sticky, lightweight and moisturising. These are the first Lippie Stixs that I’ve ever purchased and I will be purchasing a whole lot more in the future. The lipsticks are incredibly soft and almost melt on your lips thanks to the shea butter. The pigmentation is insane, remember the swatches above consist of one swipe. Bound is definitely my favourite shade, most of my collection consists of dusty rose shades. Skimpy is a light nude that is was too light for my complexion. Unfortunately, it looks like I have 90s concealer lips.
