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?
