I am starting a little mini series on the blog where I will share my Top 5 products from a brand. First up is one of the most awesome brands I discovered - Colorpop Cosmetics. Colorpop only ships to America at this stage , but I get mine through a third party seller in South Africa. (Meaning it's usually like a 30 day wait from ordering until receiving the product... eeeck ! But totally worth the wait )
My top 5 products include 3 lippies , an eye shadow and blush. So let's jump right into my picks.
Colorpop Hammered Super Shock Shadow :
Okay first off, these eyeshadows has the weirdest texture. You will get used to using the product after a try or two , the first time it does feel really weird. The eyeshadow has a mousse like texture , and is best applied with fingers. I love wearing this colour on it's own for a nice shimmery brown eye. I would recommend wearing an eye primer with these eyeshadows.
Colorpop Prenup Super Shock Cheek :
First off the main reason I love this pink blue-toned blush - the staying power. I have to be honest , most of my blushes don't even see midday sadly. This is one I still notice on my skin when I remove my make-up at night. The colour is perfect for me for everyday wear. Again , I would recommend using a stippling brush or your fingers to apply the blush - my favourite way is usually a stippling brush .
Colorpop LippyStix in Bound & Brills :
Okay , so this was hard to round it down to my 2 favourite lippystix . I currently own seven , but these two are the ones I reach for most on a weekly basis. The lippystix has the most amazing vanilla cupcake smell ( Yum !) and the colour's last on me basically the whole day . Which is amazingly impressive for me. The lipstick will transfer onto your coffee cup , but strangely enough the colour sticks to your lips. Bound is the perfect everyday pink , and Brills is a gorgeous purple colour.
Colorpop Ultra Matte Midi :
The ultra matte range is a long lasting liquid lipstick that dries completely matte. These lipsticks are a little drying for some people (I have super dry lips , but these don't irritate or dry out my lips ) but if you have that issue , a great lip scrub & lip balm solves that problem instantly. Now the reason I love these , these really last the whole day (I don't even put the colour in my bag if I'm wearing it ... I'm that confident it won't budge). These are also transfer proof - meaning it won't leave any lipstick marks on coffee cups ... or your boyfriend / husband. This one is my favourite everyday colour, although I own it in a vampy gorgeous purple too .
Do you own any Colorpop goodies that you would recommend ? Or any on your wish list ?
For those interested , I bought mine off Instagram from Only Xiiiaah , but I know Muse.SA and TheMakeUpCrush also sells them .
