Colourpop Lips and Eyes : Polite AF and She's A Beach Babe Bundles

It's finally time for part 3 of my recent Colourpop haul (I told you I bought a fair bit!), and this time it's two of their bundles, Polite AF which is a super shock shadow set, and She's A Beach Babe lip product bundle.


She's A Beach Babe retails for $18.50, but I bought it reduced to $15. It contains 3 full size lip products in a mixture of finishes, all in more summery lighter colours.


The set is part of their collaboration with Eva Gutowski who is apparently a Youtuber I am too old to have heard of. The packaging is a slight twist on their usual clear tubes with silver tops, with the addition of an animal print-esque print, and a more handwritten style font than their usual. It's cute!


Left to right - Party Wave (ultra blotted lip), Love Bite (ultra blotted lip) and Just Surfed (ultra glossy lip)

Party Wave and Love Bite both have the same finish, the ultra blotted lip. This was one of my favourite additions to the Colourpop line last year, it's lighter than their ultra mattes and works really well for a more natural look, which I often look for in the summer. I think they are really versatile tones that could work well on a lot of skin tones too. Just Surfed is a gloss, which is generally my least favourite type of lip product, but it's a bronze tone filled with silver and pink glitter that is really delightful! It could easily be used over a darker lipstick as a topper too. 


Polite AF is a set of 6 super shock shadows in tones I would describe as more autumnal or neutral, all are fairly classic colours for your makeup bag. Usually I opt for a green or other bright colour on the eyes, but I could not resist this set. I've recently fallen back in love with brown tones and this looked ideal.


I think these looks darker in real life than they do in the photos on Colourpop's website, I tend to use a single colour at a time so don't mind that at all, as lighter colours aren't ones I usually reach for.


Left to right - Deep Dive, Drift, Birthday Girl, Birthday Cake, Stereo and Sequin.

Stereo is the only colour I can't really see myself reaching for regularly, because it's very dark, almost black it's so dark, but in winter on those more goth feeling days it will still have it's place. Drift is a gorgeous cranberry red, I never thought of using red on my eyes but I saw a photo of Sara X Mills wearing reddy tones a little while ago and it really made her green eyes pop. I have green eyes too so I just have to try it for myself. The other colours are all gorgeous brown and bronze tones that I know I will find myself reaching for regularly. Birthday Cake has a bit of a rose gold tone to it, and I love the purple glitter that creeps through in Deep Dive.

All in all, I'm really pleased with everything I picked up this time round! Colourpop have totally taken over my makeup collection and for good reason.

Much love,
