Do you ever just look at a make-up product and think to yourself "where have you been all my life?" Because that's how I feel about the ColourPop eyeshadows. Out of all the eyeshadows I've ever owned in my life of loving make-up, I have not used an eyeshadow this amazing, luxurious feeling, and pigmented. Don't even get me started on the price too. These eyeshadows are only $5 EACH. For the quality you're getting, the price is BEYOND worth it. When you see the swatches, you will instantly fall in love too.
I am in love with this shot I did! I had no idea how to display all the eyeshadows and make them look nice, so I decided to go against the wall for them. I totally forgot that having a glass top would create an amazing mirror effect. The picture turned out lovely! Below was the picture I was planning to use as the main photo for the blog post, but wow, look at the difference in how it's presented!
I don't know why I kept this picture in this post, but here it is anyways.
I ordered these eyeshadows about 2-3 weeks ago, and it only took about a week and a half to arrive. On the back of the thank you card was a hand written note that said "you're our valentine, sorry". Very nice of them to personalize the package and have a handwritten note for every single person who purchased!
Each eyeshadow comes inside a little box of its own.
Unfortunately for me, one of my eyeshadows came cracked! BUT, no worry, I was able to pat it all back down together! With the super elastic texture, and sponginess, the product can be easily saved. It's like pressing down on a soft marshmallow, literally. These shadows are freaking amazing. As noted on the tips and tricks card they provided, these eyeshadows work best when you use your finger to apply it onto your eyelid.
"I heart this" is a gorgeous cool toned slivery taupe colour. I honestly can't choose a favourite, because I love them all.
I told myself that I needed a nice white colour for my inner eye corner, and I definitely got one.
"Tassel" is the perfect metallic white for the inner eye corner. It's basically good to highlight anywhere you want. The colour pay off is amazing, and surprisingly the fall out is fairly minimal compared to more powdery eyeshadows.
This is my new favourite outer corner colour.
It may look like a super black colour here, but it's the most beautiful plum purple! AHHHH, I love it so much. Its the most gorgeous matte purple ever!!
Do you ever wonder who gets the job naming beauty products? Where did they get the name from, and how does it correlate with the colour??
"Fringe" is described as a gold/silver champagne colour. I imagine myself using this as a middle of the lid colour to brighten up your eyes.
Now this is your perfect smokey eye, sultry eyeshadow colour.
It's almost similar to doe-a-deer, except it leans towards a brown plum shade, with a nice amount of shimmery glitter.
I love nudes, so I knew I would love this colour. "Truth" is a very matte, very peachy beige nude colour that works amazing as a transition or all over lid colour.
It was almost too beautiful to ruin the design.
Just look at how pigmented and opaque the colours are! This was just me swirling my finger inside of the eyeshadow pot, and swatching it on my arm with NO PRIMER. I've already written down a list of other eyeshadows I plan to pick up, because they are that good. I can see where the hype comes from for this product because it definitely lives up to it. I don't think I can pick a favourite out of the 6 I've chosen, so I'm going to let you guys choose for me!
Which out of the 6 is your favourite?
Will you be purchasing any ColourPop Eyeshadows?
