Beauty and Makeup Reviews What I Think Wednesday

What I think Wednesday: Colourpop brand Review

January 30, 2019

I should probably tell you know, that I had a helper when it came to taking notes on these products. Internet, meet Henry, Henry, the Internet.

He always pulls a sad face for pictures, silly dog.

Hello my beauties! I hope you are all doing well? Today’s review is going to be a bit broader and encompass the entire brand of Colourpop. And by entire brand, I mean what I own which is not a piece from every section of their site but I’m working on that. I will be reviewing what I know and have loved since they launched. Let’s get started!

Lips

Lippie Pencils

I have four of their Lippie Pencils, as you can see. I have two brighter pinks, a magenta, and a nude. From top to bottom their names are, Punky, Are and Be, Button, and Fetch. Except for Are and Be, which I bought not too long ago, I don’t believe those colors are available anymore. I got them in the early days, so to speak. I really love how creamy these lip liners are, they go on smoothly, they are richly pigmented, and don’t tug on your lips during application. They are the kind that needs to be sharpened, but that doesn’t bother me at all. The only negative that I’ve found is that the core, the color, can pop out. But for a great lip pencil that only costs $5, I can deal with it.

Lippie Stix

I really love these lippie sticks. They are creamy and pigmented and come in Matte and Creme right now. I have a nude at the top, it’s a nice pinky beige nude which really looks good on my skin tone. I love the teal one, no I don’t wear it out- I’m not that brave- but I love to wear it on Halloween or when I’m not going anywhere. It’s one of those lipsticks that makes me feel special. The colors from top to bottom are, Little Things (creme), Rocket (Satin), Fetch (Satin), Raw (Satin), and Juicy (Hyper Glossy). All of the colors after Little Things are from years ago, explaining why they are finishes I don’t think they have anymore. If you haven’t tried these, I would definitely urge you to give them a go. How the actual lipstick is shaped makes it easier to apply just because of the shape of the product. It’s smaller making it easier to use. I honestly can find no fault with these.

Lipstick

I only own one of their lipsticks that is in the bullet. I purchased the color Maxed Out and it’s a matte formula. I have to say, though, that I really like this matte formula and I’m picky. This is actually comfortable on the lips and doesn’t dry them out. Also, the stars on the packaging carry over to the actual lipstick as little embossed stars on the product. I’m a sucker for cute packaging like that. Just basing it on the one I have, I would definitely recommend it especially to those of you who don’t like matte. On the other hand, I only own one so I would like to try other colors out to see if it is great across the board.

Ultra Glossy Lip

From left to right the colors are: Double Agent, Moon Child (from the new Kathleen Lights collection), Feedback, Snow Day, and Wolfie (Ultra Metallic). This is one of their newer releases, the lipglosses. They look gorgeous alone or over top a lippie stick or an ultra matte lip. The applicator is a brush but I have to say that I find the brushes to be really stiff, especially when you first get them. As you use them though, they become a bit more pliable and easier and less pokey to use. The one from the Kathleen Lights collection though, is a normal sponge tip applicator, which is nice. I really like these, but I love glossy lips. If you love glossy lips, I would say give them a try!

Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

These are the only Ultra Matte’s I own. I find them to be very drying so I don’t wear them as often as I should. The colors from left to right are: Wednesday, Speedial, Highball, Donut, Tuesday (P.P.), and Airplane Mode. I really love the pinks I own when I wear them. They are highly pigmented and once on, they really do not go anywhere once they dry down. I would recommend these to people who don’t have naturally dry lips. If you have naturally dry lips, I would say steer clear or put a balm on then pat it off before putting on the Ultra Matte.

Ultra Satin Lip

I only have three of the Ultra Satin liquid lipsticks, and I really love them. Unlike the Ultra Matte, these don’t dry down, and they don’t dry your lips out. The colors from top to bottom are: Dreamy, Brooklyn, and Rever. Both Dreamy and Rever are from the new Kathleen Lights Collection. Dreamy is a really nice nude for fair ladies like myself. They are not budge proof, but they are easy enough to touch up and reapply. Would I recommend if you can find them on the site? Yes!

Face

Super Shock Highlighters

I have three Super Shock Highlighters, and I really love them. From left to right, the colors are: Highly Waisted, Felicity, and Stole the Show. I have to be honest, I use Highly Waisted as more of a blush than a highlighter because it’s too pink and too dark for me. This just goes to show how versatile these products are. If I wanted, I could use the Super Shock Eyeshadows as a highlighter. The newest one for me is Felicity- can’t you tell, the writing is still on the packaging, hah! This is also a light pink base but is balanced by a duochrome glitter with a purple shift that looks really great on my skin. Also the pink isn’t too pink, so it works and I’m so glad because this is the one I’ve been reaching for most recently. Stole the Show was my second after Highly Waisted. I’m pale enough that white glittery highlighters work for me, and will for most pale faces 😜 Would I recommend these? Oh, hands down, yes!

Eyes

Super Shock Eyeshadows

I figured I would start this section off with the three Super Shock Shadows I currently have in my project pan that I’m trying to fully finish. To know more about my project pan, click here and you’ll be taken to me post! From left to right the colors are Fringe (Metallic, P.P), Girly (Pearlized, P.P.), and Amaze (Metallic, P.P.).

The colors from left to right on the top row are: Birthday Wish (Ultra Glitter), Shark Attack (Pearlized), Pledge Class (Ultra Glitter), and Sequin (Metallic). The bottom row, left to right are: Liberty (Ultra Metallic), Lovely (Metallic), La La (Ultra Metallic), and Cherish (Ultra Glitter).

The shadow at the very top is Lightning Bug (Ultra Glitter). The first row, from left to right are: Get Lucky (Ultra Metallic), Special Delivery (Ultra Glitter), Telepathy (Ultra Metallic), and Flipper (Metallic). The second row is as follows, again left to right: In A Pickle (Matte), Sunset Blvd. (Pearlized) from the Kaepop collection, Swan (Satin Luxe) from the Rumer Has It collection, and Tea Party (Metallic). And the last row from left to right are: Set to Stun (Ultra Glitter), Ladybird (Ultra Glitter), Nillionare (Metallic), and Twitterpated (Ultra Glitter).

I absolutely adore the Super Shock Shadows from Colourpop. It is such a unique formula and I love it. They say it can be applied with a brush if you want but when I tested it, I found out that they apply best by just using your finger. Although, if what you want is a sheer wash then a brush would be your best bet. A fair amount of these have glitter but don’t fret! I’ve never had a problem with these shadows having bad, if any, fallout. They have all of the colors of the rainbow, so there is something for everyone in their collection. I love these when I’m running late because I can just pick one and do a full wash of color over my eyelid. Since you don’t have to fuss with brushes then you are out the door even faster. The formula is creamy and a bit weird when you first touch it, but the weird soon passes when you see what they look like when applied.

From this post, you can see I love Colourpop. Go and check them out on their site and find something to try, you won’t be disappointed. This will take you to their home page so you can check them out for yourselves. And before you ask, this is not an affiliate link. I’m just providing it for ease of access.
