Colourpop Haul + Review

Hey Whisperers,

This is not a false alarm, i repeat this is not a false alarm Colourpop is now shipping internationally! I've been wanting to try out Colourpop makeup for so long but you couldn't get it in the UK so when i saw that they had started shipping internationally i had to get some, and of course i had to swatch and review them for you guys to so lets get into the post!

Ordering from Colourpop 

When you use the Colourpop site you order everything using US Dollars, which i didn't mind this as i just added what i wanted to my cart and converted the price once i had finished. I spent $42 in total which converted to £35.68.When I made my order the site had free international shipping (added bonus, as it's normally $9.99/£8.03) so i was super excited. Without this my order would have been over $50 and would have been an estimated £41.79. The ordering process is pretty much the same as any other makeup site such as Boots or Superdrug and it was so easy to use. Once i had ordered my products it took 10 days for them to arrive from America which wasn't too bad.

What I Ordered



When i saw this set i knew that i had to get it, it has a perfect mix of nude, pinks and dark shades that i fell in love with. I was going to buy 3 out of the 5 shades in the set so instead i thought i may as well order the whole set. In the set you get 5 full size Ultra Matte Lipsticks in the shades; Air plane Mode, Bumble, LAX, Teeny Tiny and Clueless. I think that this set is perfect if you're a beginner in makeup or even if you're just looking to try out a variety of new lip shades as you do get quite a few to choose from.



I love Kathleen Lights so when i saw this eye shadow set i knew that i had to get these. As many of you know i am obsessed with gold eye shadow, i don't know what it is but i absolutely love it and this set has the most gorgeous bronze/gold shade i have ever seen. In the set you get 2 matte shades a pearlized shimmer shade and a metallic shade, in the shades ; Glow, Kathleen-lights, Blaze and Cornelious. This kit is so beautiful and i love how you can create a variety of different eye looks with just the one set. 

Swatches and Reviews



When i swatched the Ultra Matte Lipsticks i instantly fell in love. These liquid lipsticks are quite runny, but they're insanely pigmented. When applied to the lips they apply quite wet but they dry pretty fast. As you can see in the kit i got 5 colours and I'm pretty much in love with every single one. From Left to Right: LAX, Bumble, Clueless, Teeny Tiny, Air plane mode. 



These eye shadows are like nothing i have ever tried before, they are so incredibly creamy and soft an the pigment on them all is insane. Out of the three the golden and dark brown/bronze are for sure my favourites, I apologise if you can't see the lightest shade too well my skin is pretty much ghostly so this shade kind of blend in. 
From Left to Right: Blaze, KathleenLights, Cornelious, Glow

I thought i would add this clip ( i apologise for the quality) in here just to show you how long lasting these liquid lipsticks are, the swatches seriously wouldn't budge. They took a combination of 3 face washes and alot of scrubbing to finally come off.

Lets Talk Money

Forever or Never set- $25/£20.09 
in the gift set this makes each lipstick £4.01 however
 if you buy the lipsticks separately you would be paying
$6/£4.82 per lipstick which all together would come to 
$36.00/£28.94.


Where the Glow is- $18/£14.46
in the gift set this makes each eye shadow £3.61 however
 if you buy the eye shadows separately you would be paying
$5/£4.02 per eye shadow which all together would come to

Customs- £14.94
In the UK you have to pay customs on anything thats been
shipped from abroad, over the value of £15.

Oveall Total

All together i'm pretty much in love with these products, the long awaited hype was so worth it. They're such beautiful colours and the quality of the products is beyond anything i have tried before!

    1. it annoys me so much, like it's a few eye shadows and lipsticks yet the customs costs the same amount as one of the sets it's ridiculous.
