My First ColourPop Order

I like to think that I am up on the new beauty brands and products. However, I think I missed the initial ColourPop rush. Is it just me or did it suddenly explode all over YouTube? I have a serious case of FOMO for most everything (the struggle is real #firstworldproblems), so I had to try a few things from the brand.

I decided to go with their most talked about products-the Super Shock Shadows and the Lippie Stix. I went with the Megan Naik set (again feeling way behind since I am not familiar with her channel-though I will have to check that out soon). It seems they do a lot of collaborations with YouTubers & beauty bloggers, which might explain all that buzz. Plus, they are quite an affordable range. Anyway, back to the set. It includes four shadows of a variety of finishes. Amira-a crazy glitter packed antique gold metallic; Onai-a white satin; Farah- a matte brown; and Lectra- a deep metallic burgundy with pink glitter. I can't resist a burgundy shadow.

I have to say with swatching these I was a bit light as the texture is whipped, kind of mousse-like, and I didn't want to dig too deep, but you can definitely build it up like crazy. The eye make-up I'm wearing below is all the shades. This was definitely a dramatic look as it's super glittery. Though, no fall out-I think it must be the magic mousse-y formula.

I also added a few Lippie Stix to my order: Frida (what I am wearing here), Lumiere, Brunch, & Julep. I will share more on those tomorrow. With my order, I got a Tasty, a coral highlighter, as an extra. I added a little bit of that over my blush (tarte True Love) here. It has that Nars Orgasm vibe-perfect for spring/summer.

If you are looking for some new shadows or to try some lip colours, I would check ColourPop out. They have a huge selection, great formulas, and everything is basically $5. Can't go wrong with that.

Am I late to the game? What are some of your ColourPop favs?
