A Very Late ColourPop Haul

colour pop haul

Now this is going up MONTHS late but hey, better late than never right? One weekend ColourPop were doing free international shipping so I decided to finally get my hands on some of the KathleenLights collaborations as she is one of my favourite YouTubers. A little tip - I also split these into a few different orders to avoid custom charges.

First up we have the Aquarius trio which includes the Aquarius ultra satin lip, Aquarius ultra glossy lip and the Aquarius 2 ultra matte lip. The satin version is definitely my favourite but I also get a lot of use out of Aquarius 2, which is more cool toned than the original. I personally think I prefer the satin formula as it feel less drying on the lips, however the matte formula is by no means super drying and is still comfortable.

Next up I chose the Where The Light Is collection (of course!). These eyeshadows are simply beautiful, warm toned neutrals are definitely my go to colours. I have never experienced anything like the ColourPop formula, they have a slightly creamy feel but are still a powder shadow. This formula works well with the sparkly and metallic shades but I'm still learning how best to use the matte shades - any tips are welcome! The colours all work well together and you can make a range of different looks, from simple to dramatic. I can't wait to use the Blaze shade on a night out!

I also picked up the single eyeshadow in Weenie, which is a gorgeous rose gold, however I forgot to include it in these pictures!

Lastly I picked up the ultra satin lip in November which is also a KathleenLights collaboration. This shade is a pretty, bright mid-toned pink. Not too pale but also not super bright or neon. I really enjoy wearing this shade for a natural, feminine look and tend to gravitate towards it if I'm unsure what colour to wear. The shade on the right is Frick N Frack which I bought on a whim as it took my fancy.  This comes out much darker on my lips than I expected and is a sort of burgundy tone, not quite as red as it looks in the tube or swatched.

I am dying to get my hands on more lip and eyeshadow colours but the custom and shipping charges scare me! What are your ColourPop reccomendations?
