Colourpop Haul: 1 Year Later

It’s been a year since I last ordered from Colourpop and featured my Colourpop haul on here, I’ve been wanting to make another order for a few months now but I kept putting it off due to the dreaded custom fees. Also I just feel like they literally bring out so much new stuff every week it’s crazy! Everything they bring out is gorgeous and affordable, and it’s like I may as well wait and see what else comes out before I order?! Literally the week after I made my order, there were already new releases I wish I’d waited for. Anyway, let’s get into what I managed to get my hands on.

Fem Rosa Karrueche x Colourpop She Palette | Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette $16

Since they started releasing their pressed shadow palettes my eyes were peeled, they looked gorgeous and I heard great things about the shadows and of course they were super affordable. Last year in my order, I picked up 5 of the Super Shock Shadows which are beautiful, but due to them not being in a palette I find myself completely forgetting about them and just reaching for my palettes instead. This one is absolutely gorgeous with a nice mixture of shades not found in some of my other palettes including mattes and shimmers, the packaging is so stunning too! I waited for the restock to place my order seen as it kept selling out all the time and I wanted to make sure I got my hands on it!

I Think I Love You Palette | Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette $16

Another pressed shadow palette that caught my eye but this time with more everyday shades with lots of lovely browns, coppers, bronze and neutrals again with a mixture of mattes and shimmers. The palettes are so affordable I just couldn’t not include it in my order. I think the main thing that convinced me to place my order were these pressed shadow palettes!

 Top – Bottom 951, Magic Wand, Echo Park & Alyssa | Satin Liquid Lipsticks $6 each

Last time I made a Colourpop order I tried out the matte and metallic liquid lipsticks along with a couple of lippie stix, so I hadn’t tried the satin lip formula just yet. Ever since I made my last order though, all I’ve been hearing about is how amazing the satin formula is and most people saying it’s their favourite formula from Colourpop. So obviously I had to find out for myself this time around, but then I was stuck with what shades to order as there is just soooo much choice! Finally I settled with these 4, I wanted more nude shades for everyday as last time I got a complete mixture and I’m definitely happy with my picks. Again the lip products are so affordable, and seen as I was spending at least $50 to get free international shipping I made sure I got a nice little selection.

Pier Pressure | Super Shock Highlighter $8

On the day I made my order, not only was it the She Palette restock but also a few new highlighters were released too. So even though I’m not crazy for highlighter and I don’t wear it all the time, I’d never tried any of the Colourpop highlighters, and again I’d heard great things about them so obviously I thought well why not?! Originally I was going to get the one called Off Tropic but then for some reason I changed my mind last minute and went for Pier Pressure instead which I totally regret. This is too dark a highlighter for me and now I’m stuck with it! So that was super disappointing and so I still can’t see how amazing it is either, gutted! I know I could maybe use it for an eyeshadow or something but I just know that I’ll never reach for it.

So that’s it for this years Colourpop haul! For anyone wondering about customs fees which I know a lot of people are interested in, I was charged just under £18, basically the same as last year so it hadn’t changed. I think if you get free international shipping it’s not so bad but when you’re already spending £40+ on your order to then have to pay £18 customs fees I can see why it totally puts people off, and this is definitely why it’s taken me a year to place another order as it’s not something I can justify spending very often. Just like last year though it was a kind of treat from me to me for my birthday!

Have any of you been loving anything from Colourpop lately or lusting after anything to place an order?

    I’ve never tried the s brand. I like the sound of the pressed shadows. The warm palette looks just my colours. Bet they look amazing on you with your colouring! The lippies are my shades too. Shame about the highlighter. So frustrating 😩

    Lovely post as always.

      I love a good bit of Colourpop just so annoying with the shipping and customs and everything which is why I only order like once a year. I can confirm the pressed shadows are soooo good! I love them they’re so pigmented and blend out so easily, and the lippies are such gorgeous shades too and so comfortable which is always a bonus. Yeah a little sad about the highlighter but never mind! Thank you! xx

    I really need to start shopping at ColourPop! Every shade just looks amazing, such pretty tones! The I Think I Love You palette is definitely going on my wishlist!

    I haven’t tried the brand because I’m so scared of the custom charges being extortionate and even £18 seems a bit crazy to me, but their products are gorgeous?! 😍

      I know it’s such a shame about the customs charges! I think if you order say like 1 palette you might be safe but I just think for the sake of the shipping costs and potential customs fees and everything you may as well spend $50 to get free shipping and then just get hit with the charges but idk. It’s definitely why I always put off ordering! I’m proud I’ve only made 2 orders in the past 2 years haha. xx

    I haven’t tried Colourpop before and I have to say the customs charge is a bit offputting! But the Fem Rosa palette looks lovely, very pretty and a good selection of colours. Such a shame you didn’t like the highlighter though. Your photos are lovely! x

      Yeah the customs charges are definitely what have restricted me to just ordering once a year for the past couple of years which is a shame because the products are so affordable and there is so much selection. But yeah they’re definitely worth it in the end! Aw thank you so much xx

    I love Colourpop Pressed eyeshadows and those two palettes are favorites of mine. I agree, they release new items so often that it’s hard to keep up.

    This has made me want to make another Colourpop order! I absolutely love the pressed shadows, and how have I never seen the I Think I Love You palette? I need it! X

      I definitely wasn’t impressed with last years order as much as I am this year and I definitely think it’s due to the palettes, they’re so beautiful, pigmented and blendable! The lip shades are right up my street too and I love the satin lip formula now! xx

    Omg I loved you haul! I’m always a sucker for Colourpop products 😊
