If you’re from the UK and still haven’t tried ColourPop yet, well, I’m here to tell you that you’re truly missing out. International ColourPop customers get free delivery on orders over $50, however, I know that many fear being hit with hefty customs charges. The most I’ve ever been charged was around £17 (that order was over $100), which sounds a bit eyewatering but if you take into account the quality of the products and the fact your order is being shipped over from the states, it’s not too painful. Trust me, even though ColourPop isn’t a ‘high-end’ brand, their formulas put our version of high street makeup to shame. I’m dreaming of the day that ColourPop is more accessible to the UK.
While I’ve yet to try a ColourPop product I haven’t liked (although I took a reaction to the Ultra Matte Lipstick formula I don’t blame the product just my sensitive lips) there are definitely a few stand out products that blew me away. You can read all my ColourPop reviews here, which include a look at the Supernova Liquid Eyeshadows (a cheeky Stila dupe), the adorable My Little Pony Eyeshadow Palette and No Filter Concealer. Here’s a rundown of my favourite ColourPop products that may tempt you to finally make that order…
Ultra Glossy Lipstick in Fairy Floss | 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. Hands down the best $6 I’ve ever spent.
‘Yes, Please!’ & Dream Street Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette | Every pressed powder eyeshadow palette I’ve purchased from Colourpop I’ve loved. These are two of the most used in my collection which both retail for $16. The shades are richly pigmented and easy to blend. Check out the links above to see swatches and read their full reviews.
Lux Lipstick in Uno Mas | This is my newest addition to my ColourPop collection and one of their more recent releases. All shades contain the same blend of Acai, Jojoba and Pomegranate Seed butters to hydrate and protect your lips from environmental stressors and premature ageing. Currently, all shades share the same creamy satin-matte finish.
Super Shock Eyeshadows | Every time I make a ColourPop order I always add a few more pots of the Super Shock Shadows to my collection. They 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. They are undoubtedly my favourite ColourPop product. Each pan contains 2.1g of product and individually retails for $5 each. My must-have shades are Muse (an ultra-metallic rusty rose), DGAF (a metallic rose which is packed with gold glitter), Amaze (a multi-dimensional metallic peachy gold) and Wattles (dusty beige pink satin).
Super Shock Highlighter Flexitarian | The highlighter has the same wet textures as the Super Shock Eyeshadows. Flexitarian is a highly pigmented white champagne shade that is absolutely blinding. It’s easy to blend and buildable with a buttery soft texture that melts into the skin flawlessly.
