Swatches: Baewatch, Cami, Pack Pack, Parker, Tutu, Weekender

So y’all might be wondering why I’m blogging about products from a company that sent me crap smashed to bits and gave me the hardest time ever trying to get it replaced. For the record, I did in fact ban ColourPop. I’m very unhappy with how they handled my complaint. I honestly felt like they believed it was my fault. Yes, because I opted to receive something as fragile as a cream based highlighter surrounded in a thin piece of foam tucked inside of a flimsy paper package. I could go on about this incident, but in the end it just doesn’t matter. They lost my business. Not that it really matters to them, but I see no point in dedicating an entire post on how bad they messed up.

That being said, I do still have a bunch of ColourPop items to blog about. I went a little crazy last month and have a few dozen items to post. I do still love their products. I won’t sit here and lie and say it’s crap. Their customer service on the other hand is total crap. And once I make my way through my last few hauls I will not be posting any more new items from the brand. Unless I use older products in a look. I mean I’m not going to just throw them out! They’re great products! But ColourPop broke my heart and for that they must pay. Look at me sounding like a bitter ex!

After trying out the Hello Kitty Lippie Stix I was left wanting more. So when I saw the To And From set from the holiday collection, I just knew I had to make it mine. The packaging is on the bulky side. I think it would have been fine in the record case alone. The outer cardboard is a bit much to me. Like something they could use to send their fragile highlighters in to keep them from breaking.

Not so subtle digs aside, I love the shades included in this set! It’s a nice mix of neutral and bold. And all of them are matte! You can see all of the shades in action below!

ColourPop To And From

Baewatch is described as a dusty rose.

ColourPop To And From

Cami is described as a mid-tone mauve.

ColourPop To And From

Pack Pack is described as a deepened dirty plum.

ColourPop To And From

Parker is described as a mid-tone warm nude.

ColourPop To And From

Tutu is described as a blackened red violet.

ColourPop To And From

Weekender is described as a warm true red.

I found all of the shades to be surprisingly creamy. They all applied beautifully! A few of the darker shades can be a little stiff at first, but after a few applications they apply beautifully. Pack Pack and Tutu can look a little patchy. You’re also going to want to prep your lips really good beforehand because these two don’t play nice with dry lips. The other shades were much more forgiving. Pack Pack also looks much bolder in person. Aside from the slight patchiness it’s actually a very beautiful shade. My swatch really doesn’t do it much justice. I’ll have to work it into another look to really show her off. Tutu doesn’t look totally matte on me, but I don’t really mind because it really is a pretty shade. All of the shades were very comfortable. I didn’t find them to be drying. They don’t last too long and they really don’t hold up so well with food and drink. But reapplying is easy so it’s not really an issue with me.

Overall, I’m really happy with my purchase. I’m excited to have a few more of the Lippie Stix in my collection because I really do like them.

So how is the new year treating you so far?

ColourPop Hello Kitty Collection

ColourPop Hello Kitty Collection

Swatches: Surprise, Tiny Chum, Konichiwa, Coin Purse, School Is Fun

Now you just know I had to get in on the ColourPop Hello Kitty Collection! My order surprisingly shipped within 3 days and was in my hands within the week! I say surprisingly because I’ve had to wait well over 2 weeks for less popular collection releases. I’m not complaining though!

I think ColourPop did a wonderful job on this collection. The packaging is cute as heck! It’s simple, but nicely done. I wasn’t really sold on the eyeshadow shades, but everything else is as colorful and sparkly as I’d expect it to be. I only picked up a few items. I totally would have purchased the kit if the eyeshadows were more exciting to me. I was a little bummed that the highlighter and blush included in the kit wasn’t sold separately. It seems I wasn’t alone in that. Anyway, here’s what I picked up.

ColourPop Hello Kitty Ultra Metallic Lip in Surprise $6.00
Surprise is described as a metallic finish dynamic cool toned ruby red topped with copper and hot pink glitter. This is the lipstick I was most excited to try. It looks all kinds of sparkly and pretty. I think it’s the perfect holiday lip shade.

It’s very creamy. It’s a little on the thick side, but it still applies nicely and evenly. It’s a little gritty because of all the glitter, but it doesn’t affect application. It made for a nice comfortable wear, but it did feel a little drying toward the end of the day. It wasn’t transfer-proof, but it did hold up well to food and drink with only a little fading on the inner part of my mouth. It also leaves behind a bit of a stain. Aside from the drying and fading, it’s a really beautiful lipstick. This is easily my favorite of them all!

ColourPop Hello Kitty Ultra Satin Lip in Tiny Chum $6.00
Tiny Chum is described as a satin finish baby nude pink. The texture on this one is a little thinner. It applied just as nicely as Surprise. It does settle a bit into lines so you’ll want to be sure to prep your lips well before applying this one. It felt a little tacky, but it wasn’t bothersome. It lasted around 7 hours and did require a bit of a touch-up after food and drink.

ColourPop Hello Kitty Lippie Stix in Konichiwa $5.00
Konichiwa is described as a creme finish mid-tone cool blue pink. This lipstick is so creamy and glides onto your lips with ease. It made for one of the most comfortable wears I’ve experienced from ColourPop. It didn’t last nearly as long as the liquid lipsticks, but touching up was easy. I don’t have many Lippie Stix and I’m just now wondering why. I will have to change that! Soon!

ColourPop Hello Kitty Blush in Coin Purse

ColourPop Hello Kitty Blush in Coin Purse $8.00
Coin Purse is described as a matte finish bright cool toned rosy pink. It’s creamy and applies and blends beautifully. I usually use my fingers to apply their blushes. I just dab and blend in. It’s not as intimidating as it appears in the pan. But I’d still use a light hand.

ColourPop Hello Kitty Highlighter in School Is Fun

ColourPop Hello Kitty Highlighter in School Is Fun $8.00
School Is Fun is described as a pearlized finish soft iridescent duo chrome gold. It’s creamy and soft like the other highlighters I’ve tried. I use a combination of my fingers and a brush to apply their highlighters. The gold pairs beautifully with the pink. I’ll have to photograph my look the next time I wear them together. This post is already a little too heavy on the photos.

I also ordered another Lippie Stix in the shade Date Mate, but I decided to include it in my upcoming giveaway. So be on the lookout for that!

Did you order anything from the Hello Kitty Collection?

ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip in Brooklyn

Swatch

So this is an older post that has been sitting on the back burner for a few months now. I’m really trying to work my way through some of my older purchases that I have yet to show any love to. It’s hard when I still have so many new things sitting on my desk that I so desperately want to dig into. I realized that I had a problem when I started drooling over swatches of the new ColourPop lipsticks and started planning my order. I had to stop myself because I still have lipsticks from my last purchase that I haven’t posted! So here goes!

I just had to get Brooklyn! Brooklyn is described as a warm bright hot pink. It applied perfectly! It was very lightweight and made for a comfortable wear. It lasted pretty much all day and even when I went to remove it at the end of the day it left behind a slight stain. I’m really digging this shade. Besides the cool name it’s a really pretty color and perfect for Summer. Which is in full swing with those 100+ degree temperatures. You can see Brooklyn in action below.

So back to the new ColourPop Ultra Metallic lipsticks. I’m totally still getting them. They’ll be perfect for Fall! Have you seen the swatches? They’re so pretty!
