Lip Gloss -ColourPop -Ultra Glossy Lip (All Colors)


Colourpop's Ultra Glossy Lip is lip gloss for people who don't like lip gloss. They are so good; not sticky at all, which pretty much makes them a slam dunk in my book. You won't have to worry about your hair sticking to your lips on a windy day, which is normally the hallmark of lip gloss. They are super hydrating and fragrance free, so they are really comfortable to wear. I know some people like an added scent to lip gloss, but me and my sensitive nose are not one of them. So far, I have these in Aquarius, Finder's Keepers and Bestie, all of which have a crème finish:

- Aquarius is a very pigmented pinky nude that seems to look great on so many skintones. I am ghostly pale with neutral to cool undertones and I love the way it looks on me. On top of my pigmented lips, Aquarius looks like a neutral peachy pink nude, but when I tone down my pigmented lips with foundation or with my MAC Lip Erase balm, it is a beautiful slightly cool-toned pink nude, which is more true to color. I definitely see why so many people love this shade. It is fast becoming my go-to lip gloss for my everyday look.

- Finder's Keepers - Another favorite of mine! It's a gorgeous, pigmented cool-toned purple-y mauve. It is so soft and pretty! It looks great on people with cool and neutral skin tones. I absolutely love this one!

- Bestie is a pigmented mid-tone pinky peach that has neutral to warmer undertones. It looks like a slightly lighter version of the Ultra Satin Lipstick, 'ALLYSA.' Unfortunately, it doesn't look that good on my neutral to cool skin tone, so I rarely wear it. It is just too peachy for me, but does look great on my warmer toned friends and family.

I highly recommend these lip glosses! They are fantastic! Oh, did I mention they were only $6? Colourpop frequently has 20% off and BOGO sales, so if you sign up for their newsletter, they will notify you when they occur. They totally know how to suck you in, so beware of a potential Colourpop addiction. I am constantly amazed with the quality of their products. They are comparable to so many high-end products, but at a small fraction of the price.

Palettes -ColourPop -You Had Me at Hello Pressed Powder Shadow Palette

on 4/16/2018 2:38:00 PM


I got this in my April 2018 boxycharm & this palette was my first foray into colourpop e/s. I really didn’t esp like this palette like was described below the shimmers I wanted to be “blinding” (good word choice) & the mattes just arent creamy. Palette has moderate fallbut I just couldn’t get them to show up without all this setting spray prob I wouldn’t buy colourpop eyeshadows just because Urban Decay are my faves then I like MAC, TF$, TF, Tilbury & chanel rounds out group, I also don’t need any new makeup let alone another below average palette so I’m being picky w what I buy. Cardboard okay, it has a mirror but it needs a brush. I am used to UD they include a nice brush! The colors are pretty: roses, mauves & metallics. I always wear primer thou & it still creased somewhat. Meh. I’m sorry to leave a neg review :-( I would’ve not rebuy colourpop eyeshadows. Grade: B-

Eyeliner -ColourPop -Creme Gel Liner

on 4/15/2018 10:10:00 AM


I received this product in an Ipsy glam bag and was very excited. I had never tried anything from ColourPop and wanted to give it a go.

PROS: The brand offers amazing colours. I received a copper that is beautiful on green eyes.

CONS: I would tell you what the shade I received except all of the words on the package have rubbed off (almost immediately). So, if your someone who cares about packaging, this may bug you. Also, if you love a colour, you may want to note what it is called somewhere if you plan to repurchase. The packaging also makes it hard to get a great point on the product and the consisancy is very creamy; thus, it is hard to get a precise line. I started using this as an eye base but this eyeliner is VERY creamy and my eyelids are very oily and hooded and everything just begins to slide around.

The BOTTOM LINE: If you have young normal to dry eyelids, you may love this product. For people with oily or hooded lids, I would say pass.

Lip Liners -ColourPop -Lippie Pencils


I am so in love with Colourpop Lippie Pencils! They are absolutely amazing! So creamy, easy to apply, long lasting and just gorgeous! They are almost identical to Kylie Cosmetics Lip Liners, only for a small fraction of the price. You can wear them under lipstick or lipgloss or just by themselves. They aren't drying and are super comfortable on the lips. It blows my mind that these are only $5.

I have these in LBB, Bossy, Lumiere, Contempo and Oh Snap! and I love every single one:

- LBB is my absolute favorite of the bunch. It is a cool-toned, plummy wine that is absolutely gorgeous! A little goes a long way with application as it is very pigmented. I will be so sad if they ever discontinue this color.

- Bossy is a cool-toned bright red that some say, is a true red. Personally, I think it's more of a pinky red that pulls very pink on my cool-toned skin. It is still beautiful and a lot of people seem to love it.

-Lumiere is a purple mauve that seems to be universally beautiful on all skintones. I reach for this one quite often, since it is muted enough to wear in the daytime, as well as night.

-Contempo is another favorite of mine. It is a medium mauvey pink that leans more on the cool to neutral side. It looks amazing on my pale, cool skin and I love wearing it under lipgloss, but it looks even more amazing if you wear it with the Contempo Lippie Stix. It is so versatile, which is why I love it so much.

-Oh Snap! is a true nude, which looks slightly on the pink side until I apply it on my lips. It seems to pull more brown against my super pale, cool-toned skin. It is still beautiful and I like to pair it with a pink lipstick or gloss to bring out the nude in it.

Colourpop seriously knocked it out of the park with these pencils. They are simply amazing and I highly recommend them to anyone. I wish they would add more cool toned pinky nudes to their color selection. Other than that, they are absolute perfection!

Lipstick -ColourPop -Ultra Blotted Lip


I love Ultra Blotted Lips! I reach for these much more often than my Ultra Satins and Lippie Stix. The formula is very interesting; it has a matte, sheer to medium coverage and the consistency is quite thin. Some of the darker colors can be a bit streaky, but only if you apply it directly with the wand. See, there is a learning curve with these lipsticks; all you have to do is first apply the product with the wand then use your finger to blend it out. Stick with one layer only. The result: a beautiful sheer, streak-free & patch-free wash of color on the lips. It dries down quickly and feels extremely comfortable on the lips; very soft and slightly powdery, if that makes any sense. It barely feels like I have anything on my lips. There is just the slightest bit of transfer, but it still has excellent staying power. I love that I can wear bright colors in the daytime without feeling like it's too much. Because of its sheer-medium coverage, these would also be great for people who want to try fun colors, but don't want to commit to anything too bold.

I have the shades "Cherry on Top," "Slide" and "Split." My absolute favorite is definitely "Cherry on Top." Actually, it's one of my favorite Colourpop lipsticks. It's a beautiful cool-toned plum. I am so addicted to Colourpop's plum & berry shades and "Cherry on Top" does not disappoint. My second favorite is "Slide," which is a sheer, cool-toned slightly bright pink that is so pretty & feminine. Very wedding lip. My skin is VERY pale, so it looks brighter on my lips than it would on the average person, I'm sure. I find myself wearing this color a lot these days. Last but not least is "Split," a pretty berry fuchsia that is also cool-toned. I don't find myself wearing this one as often as it looks a bit too bright on my pale skin, but it looks amazing on medium & dark skintones.

I can not recommend the Ultra Blotted Lips enough! And for $6 a pop, you can't go wrong. Just don't forget to use your finger to blend on your lips! That is key to keeping the streaks at bay. ☺
