Current ColourPop Faves!!
So to say that I am obsessed with ColourPop is a complete understatement. I live for ColourPop!! Okay, maybe that was a little dramatic but I really do love this company and their products. First of all, if you haven’t heard of ColourPop, you need to go here and check them out. Their products really are amazing in quality and the price is just right! Really! Their pricing will fit any budget. I own at least two products from each category that they offer. I debated whether or not to do just one big blog post all about the ColourPop products that I currently own but that would have been really long so I decided to separate them.
Alright, let’s jump right in. First, ColourPop Super Shock Shadows are so different from any eye product that I’ve used or owned. The texture is so different but in a good way. They aren’t as creamy as a cream shadow but they still kind of have that cream texture. Once it’s on your skin, it turns to more of a powder-like shadow. I am probably describing the product all wrong but really, it’s just so different and you really have to experience the shadow itself in order to understand what I’m talking about. All of the shadows that I own are highly pigmented and they truly do blend out like a dream. You can use the shadows with a brush or simply with the best tool out there–your finger. The color payout will be great either way that you choose to use the shadow but when using your finger, the color payout is going to be the best and brightest. I personally go in with a brush first and where I want the color to be more intense, I go in with my finger and blend out the harsh edges with a brush. Works like a dream each time. Make sure that you are using a synthetic brush when using these shadows so the product doesn’t get soaked up and sits on top of the brush.
Okay so now for the price. Ummm…these shadows are $5 USD a piece! Yep! You read that right!! FIVE FREAKING DOLLARS! Say what?! And because they are so highly pigmented, they seem to really last for so long. I haven’t gone through a single shadow of mine yet, although, I did just hit pan with 2 of them. 😦 Such an amazing price for such an amazing, beautiful product!! With each ColourPop purchase I make, I just fall more and more in love. Unfortunately, you can only purchase these shadows online but they do offer free shipping when you spend $30 or more. If you are a first time customer, they do offer a promo code and all you have to do is enter your email address when prompted. This will save you $5 so umm…yeah that’s basically like receiving a free shadow!!
Here’s some fun little FAQ! that I just discovered on the ColourPop website.
What is the shelf life of your Super Shock Shadows?
If unopened these lil’ guys will last 3 years. Oh yes, 3 whole years. Once opened, they will last up to a year if you close them up tight after each use.
Are your products gluten free?
Though we do not recommend eating any of our products, yes, they are all technically gluten free.
I dropped my shadow and it broke! What oh, oh what do I do!?
We know, this is like the ultimate tragedy and we are sorry you have had to experience it! Luckily, though some of life tragedies are not fixable…this one totally is. All you have to do is place a tissue over your shadow pot and press down with a round flat item. Ta Da! Practically good as new
And the best yet…ColourPop is CRUELTY FREE!!!
Alright, alright…let’s get onto the fun part. The pictures!! So below is a picture of the shadows followed by actual swatches.
So tell me, what shades are your favorite? Which ColourPop shadows are a must try? I need to make a new purchase. 😉
