Colourpop Eye Shadow Sequin Weenie LaLa I <3 Heart This Eye Candy Porter Mittens Partridge
I picked up all these ColourPop eyeshadows a while ago when they first offered free international shipping on orders over $50 USD. That shipping offer is still going by the way so now is definitely the time to order some ColourPop. I have been really enjoying the unique cream shadow formula which makes it possible to get a beautifully intense and long lasting eye look with zero fall out. They are very easy to work with and basically, I need every single shade in my life!

The formula is quite unique in these. It is a somewhat gel-like cream texture that blends very easily. I usually use a dense domed brush with synthetic fibers, like the Real Techniques Your Eyes Enhanced Shading Brush ($15.99) or even the Zoeva 142 Concealer Buffer Brush ($19), to blend. A small synthetic blending brush like the Sigma E25 ($21.60) is also very useful for blending out the edges at your crease. We also of course have to discuss how amazing the value is on these! They retail for $5 USD which, if you order enough to get free shipping (it isn't hard, trust me!), works out to about $6.80 each depending on the exchange rate. That is way less that the price of a Maybelline Colour Tattoo ($11.95) and the shade range is so much better in the ColourPop shadows.

It was so hard to choose just a few shades but I ended up with the shades (left to right, top to bottom):

  • Sequin: a vibrant copper with gold and silver glitter. 
  • Weenie: a rose gold with pearl.
  • LaLa: an ultra metallic rose gold with a smooth pearl finish.
  • I <3 This: a cool toned silvery taupe shade with multi-coloured glitter. I simply love the lilac glitter in this!
  • Eye Candy: a lavender with silver and pink glitter. 
  • Porter: a warm burgundy with gold shimmer.
  • Mittens: a warm brown matte with red undertones.
  • Partridge: a brown and green duo-chrome shimmer.

I probably went a little nuts with the rose golds and should have switched it up a bit but I really do love all the shades I picked. I think Mittens and Partridge are my favourite combo for that gorgeous duo-chrome eye look, perfect for parties or any special occasion. I really love the packaging as well, which feels sturdy for such an inexpensive product. They also look adorable all lined up in my drawers and I love that they have big windows on the lid so you can clearly see the shade. Some people mentioned that these dry out quickly but I haven't had any problems so far. I keep them sealed tight and they are just the same as when I bought them 2 months ago. I will definitely come back and edit this post though if I see any hint of drying out in the future.

Here are some super simple and easy to achieve I looks I created with these shades.

As you can see, the colours are really quite intense on the eye. The also blended beautifully and set down to create a long lasting look. I really do love them and I could not be more impressed, especially considering how affordable they are. I only hope that ColourPop keeps the free international shipping on orders over $50 USD so they stay accessible and I can get some more. 

Will you be placing an order for ColourPop after reading this? Do you already have some favourite ColourPop eyeshadows that I should check out for my next order? Let me know in the comments below.

  2. Like nearly everyone else I also recently did a ColourPop haul and picked up a few of their eyeshadows. I absolutely love the formula and colour range, and for that price it is such a bargain! Have you tried any of their lip products? I would highly recommend the Lippie Stix if you haven't, they are my fave CP product so far! xx
