Colour Pop Cosmetics has been blowing up my Instagram feed with other bloggers and celebs sporting their mind blowing makeup colours they've been coming out with. Their gorgeous glittery, high intensity coloured eye shadows and highlighters look absolutely stunning in photos that have crossed my Intagram feed which unfortunately makes me weak in the knees. Clearly, I had to get my hands on few of these products. I purchased an assortment of their eyeshadows and liquid matte lipsticks for my first order.
Liquid matte lipsticks are my jam and I have definitely purchased a ton from a handful of brands in the past few years. I purchased a few dark brown colours and and adorable set they came out with for the holidays which had some beautiful berry, red and brick colours. When I first applied one of the liquid lipsticks I noticed how highly pigmented each stroke was. You definitely did not need more than one layer on. Having said that, I immediately found that it was also extremely drying. I was so disappointed with the formula because I really wanted to love this line. Could it possibly be a bad batch? I hope so because I'm so in love with all the gorgeous colors they have!
Their eyeshadows on the other hand.... extremely pigmented!! They also have an amazing selection of gorgeous chromatic colors! I’m definitely going to re purchase their eyeshadows again because of the unique colors they often come out with. The only downfall was that when I brought about 10 of them with me on a trip, and when I landed and was ready to get dolled up, I opened my makeup container to see that the shadows cracked in their containers. They were somewhat easy to fix, all you had to do is press the shadow down and pack it in with your finger .Their texture feels like a hard mousse feel to it.
I've shown a photo below to show you what the eyeshadow looked like cracked, I haven't gone around to fixing all of them since roughly 10 shadows broke in my bag :( .. Their containers don't seem well made which is why they can sell their products for such a decent price at $5.00 USD. The formula is just too amazing not purchase. I can deal with the cracks here and there, that's what rubbing alcohol is for right (if you don't know what I'm talking about leave me a message).
So..OVERALL.. First impression, out of 5: I'd give the liquid matte lipsticks a 1.5 (sad to say) , and their eyeshadows a 4. They hype not he eyeshadows IS REAL , the liquid matte lipsticks...not so much.
