By now it's fairly obvious that I'm a big fan of Colourpop, so when I got money for my birthday I knew what I was spending it on, as they happened to have a sale at the same time. Meant to be! Some of these products are discontinued but I couldn't resist sharing.
It wouldn't be a Colourpop order without some liquid lipstick!
I ordered Lychee in the classic ultra matte lip, and Bijou in the ultra satin lip. Lychee is in Colourpop's usual packaging, whereas Bijou was a limited edition winter colour hence the matte black packaging. I really like both the styles of packaging, they are sturdy and always full of product, and the applicators are nice and easy to use.
Lychee is a super bright purple toned pink that will just be amazing in the summer, and Bijou is purple toned again (yes, I have a problem and treat purple lipstick like Pokemon), but more of an aubergine. I'd consider this a day to day colour for me and am really glad I snapped it up before it was discontinued. Colourpop do bring the odd colour back, so it's worth keeping an eye out!
From left to right, this is Flower Shop, Fizz and Patchwork in the super shock shadows. These were all being discontinued and I love green toned eye shadow, so I had to have them. I know people think you shouldn't wear green eye makeup with green eyes, but I absolutely love it.
When I ordered Colourpop were also celebrating hitting one million followers on instagram, which meant I got this limited edition pressed eye shadow 'Milli' for free. They have just released pressed eye shadow for the first time so I was excited to get it.
The pressed shadows are designed to be added to a palette, rather than being a stand alone product, so they come in a small round metal pan. They do sell palettes that fit their pressed eye shadow that I plan to invest in at some point.
I also decided to try out their creme gel eye liner. I suck at applying eye liner, liquid eye liner is basically my nemesis, so a pencil style is about as much as I can handle. I opted for it in the shade 'Bee Sting'.
The blue stripe at the bottom is the gel eye liner, it is so soft and doesn't drag at all on application. I wore it out to a gig that was very warm and it didn't budge at all. It's bright and beautiful and I will absolutely be buying more of them!
Top to bottom the shadows are Milli, Fizz, Flower Shop and Patchwork. Milli is a lovely orange toned bronze, Fizz is a bright acidic green that is just so fun, Flower Shop is a muted green and Patchwork is a very deep blue with hints of black and glitter.
In bright sun light you can really see how glittery and pearlescent the shades are. The super shock shadows are the creamiest eye shadows you could ever use. They are very different to your usual eye shadow, but I love them. Milli is a colour that is really build-able but also blend-able, I'm excited to try more of their new pressed eye shadows.
