Hi guys sorry it’s been a bit since I’ve posted. I’m graduating college tomorrow and things have been a bit hectic. I also am working on a revamp for a new blog, hopefully coming soon! Anyway a few days ago I received the new Colourpop Highlighters and some of their new spring eyeshadows and a lipstick. The reviews and this makeup look are down below, and for all my girls graduating, congrats! Find all products at colourpop.com.
Above are all the products I picked up, I got four highlighters at $8 each, four eyeshadows at $5 each and a lippie stix also $5. I love Colourpop’s consistent affordability and free shipping on $30 (believe me it isn’t difficult to spend $30 bucks there!). Below are my reviews for each category and swatches.
From left to right is: Sticky Sweet, Butterfly Beach, Spoon and Wisp
Yes, I purchased basically all gold tone highlighters. Even though I have fair skin I just love a gold highlight, and when I received these the three gold tones looked almost the same. But fear not, they are different! Also, I’m giving all of these an A++++, they’re the most beautiful glows I’ve ever used, and long wearing. I like them even above my Becca highlighter. I apply mine with my fingers.
- Sticky Sweet: This highlighter is a bright magenta, and its fierceness is real. I would def wear this as a blush, not really a highlight. But the pigmentation is insanely beautiful.
- Butterfly Beach: This warm golden highlighter will give even fair-skinned girls that J.Lo glow. I was hesitant of this highlighter as I thought it would be too golden for my skin, but it’s turned into my favorite that I ordered. I’ve had a hard time with highlighters showing up with that in your face effect because of my freckles and fair skin. This one solves that problem.
- Spoon: Spoon is the lightest gold of the bunch. It has more of a champagne undertone and glittery flecks.
- Wisp: Wisp is slightly lighter than Butterfly Beach but still gives a beautiful sheen. I love this for everyday use.
From bottom to top: Taco, Shop, Snapdragon and Hello
Taco: Taco is matte and a mid-tone aqua, that reminds me of 70’s mod. I think this would look great on the lower lashline or all over the lid with a nude lip. The pigmentation is great and goes on in one swipe. 9/10
Shop: I love reddy-corals like Shop. This color is also matte and goes on intense. Colors like this make green and hazel eyes pop! 10/10
Snapdragon: Snapdragon is an earthy mint color, and I’m a sucker for mint. This is a great summer staple that can be worn alone or blended with a yellow or blue for a night out. 10/10
Hello: This color screamed summer, but its performance was lackluster for me. I think compared to many powder eyeshadow yellows it’s great. But as far as Colourpop’s usual standout pigmentation it fell a bit for me. But for $5 if you want a yellow that will show, this is a great option. 7/10.
Yasmin Lippie Stix: Yasmin is an electric coral, matte lipstick. I am obsessed with this color. I think for summer it’s so sexy and cool girl chic, depending on what you’re wearing. Yasmin goes on opaque, doesn’t dry out lips and stays pretty darn good. This will definitely be a summer handbag staple. 9/10
