The first time I tried ColourPop products I wasn’t very impressed. The shadows had little pigment and I hated the formula of the lip products I got. However, they came out with single pressed shadows and face duos and since then people have been RAVING about them. So I decided to give them a second chance and try out a bunch of new things. When my package came in, let’s just say I was ECSTATIC with everything that came in! However, being Canadian it took 2 and a half weeks for my package to come in, I had to buy exchange, shipping AND duty fees. So are their pressed shadows and lip products worth the hype? Keep reading to find out!

Blotted Lips:
(L-R): Alex Ren X ColourPop in Deja Vu, Drip

I really love the idea of these blotted lips! A lot of lip products that are raved about these days are heavy and pigmented. Sometimes you want something light and simple to throw on! These are described as weightless, diffused and natural. The claims are totally true with these blotted lips. I got the colour Deja Vu and Drip which are both very natural pinky nudes that you can wear for any occasion. They’re also the perfect size for travel.

(L-R): Deja Vu, Drip
Pressed Shadows:

When ColourPop came out with these single pressed shadows for an affordable price I was so happy! I find the packaging for the super shock shadows to be so bulky so putting these pressed shadows in a z-palette was ideal. Let’s start with the colours I got. I am a neutral eye shadow lover and that’s probably the only eye shadows I’ll ever wear. I got the Sonya Esman x ColourPop Eyeshadow Collection called Gemini By The Night. These colours literally call to me and go really well together! You get two mattes, a satin and a shimmer.

Below are four shadows that I got for an everyday rosey look! They go so well together, are pigmented and blend very well together. Not to mention they were only $4 each!

(L-R): Hear Me Out, Made To Last, High Strung, Popular Demand
Lippie Stix:

While the lippie stix aren’t new products they are new to me. They’re described as pigmented and comfy and the claims are true! With these you literally only need one or two swipes to get the full colour on your lips. I wore Brink all day at work and only had to touch up once! The packing of these is also super unique, I’ve never seen another brand make lipsticks like these. ColourPop has an infinite amount shades to choose from so there’s something for everyone.

Topaz Face Duo: 

This face duo is from the Alexis Ren x ColourPop Collection. The packaging for the Topaz Palette is very sturdy and compact for travel! The bronzer on the left does have a very orange undertone but it works. I’ve heard people of all different skin tones loves this bronzer and I have to stay the same! The pigment and blendability is also there. The shade of the highlighter is a gorgeous pure gold; however I think it is a bit too dark for my skintone. Even though I’m a bit darker in the summer it’s still a bit too dark but works beautifully as an eyeshadow. However, I think if you used it as a highlighting topper and were going out at night, it would look stunning! I did need to built it up to get the swatch below so it’s not the most pigmented but very buildable.

Bottom Line: I think ColourPop is a great brand with very affordable prices. However, if you live outside of the US then their prices aren’t exactly the most affordable. My entire order came to $52 US but after shipping, exchange rate and duty fees it came to a whopping $90!! I was so shocked at this price that I’m not sure if I’ll ever order from them again until the exchange rate goes down. It also took 2 and a half weeks for my package to come. I am very happy with the products I chose and the colours so if you live in the US, I’d highly recommend trying out any of these products!
