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!

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!

It took me a while to get my hands on this beauty! It was out of stock every time I went to purchase it. Thankfully I was finally able to get my hands on it. You know… because I need yet another mauve lipstick in my collection.

Dopey is described as a dusty mauve. Even the description sounds pretty! Like all of the other ColourPop lipsticks I’ve reviewed, Dopey applied perfectly. I didn’t need to use a lip brush as the applicator made for a nice, smooth application. I have to say that this lipstick is the most comfortable of them all! And it lasted all day! I’m really digging the Ultra Satin formula so far. I’m so impressed with how comfortable they are.

I think Dopey just became my favorite ColourPop lipstick! Maybe? Definitely one of them! It’s beautiful, comfortable and long lasting. What more could you ask for? You can see Dopey in action below!

I’ve been super busy organizing my makeup collection. I have to purchase a new desk because my old one is falling apart after two moves and years of use. I really need to get something sturdy with more storage space. I’m trying to organize all of my samples so that they have a dedicated space. I think that would be easier for me to keep track of what I have so that I can plan out reviews for each of them. I think the desk storage would be perfect for just that. I’d also like to do an updated post on my collection and how I have it organized. Once I finish reorganizing it of course. For now I’m just trying to keep my desk clear as things keep piling up. Oops?
