Colourpop haul & first impressions

When Colourpop recently restocked their Yes, Please eyeshadow palette I hurried up and ordered one along with a couple other products from the brand, since i've never tried anything from them before. They are big on social media and mostly well known for their Super Shock eyeshadows and Lippie Stix for affordable prices, although they've added a bunch of other formulas and products since they've first started out. The brand also just recently announced that they will be expanding into Sephora's retail locations soon, which sounds very exciting.


Besides the Yes, Please Pressed Powder Eyeshadow palette I also picked up two Lippie Stix, one Ultra Glossy Lip and one Super Shock Eyeshadow, which I've been testing for the past couple days so I'll be able to share some first impressions as well.


Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip and Lippie Stix in Aquarius - this was created by Kathleen Lights and I've been wanting to try out the items from her collab, so I grabbed two of her lip products. The Ultra Glossy Lip has a very glossy comfortable formula, which transfers easily but still stays on the lips. The Lippie Stix in the same shade comes in a créme finish and is comfortable on the lips. I have to apply two coats for full coverage and although the shades come under the same name, they are not exactly the same - I love the gloss, while the Lippie Stix applies on me as a lighter pinky nude. 
Colourpop Lippie Stix in Brink has a matte finish, but is really comfortable even on my dry lips. The shade is the prettiest terracotta rose which applies as a deeper nude on me and is perfect for everyday wear. All three lip products have a lovely sweet vanilla scent, which is not overpowering.

Next up, the star of this haul - the Yes, Please Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette. I've been obsessed with warm toned palettes and since the brand recently came out with more pressed powder eyeshadows I thought this palette would be the perfect way to try out the formula. The palette has a bright yellow outer sleeve, with all the eyeshadow names stated on the back, but they are also featured on the back of the palette itself (but not also next to the shades themselves). There are 12 eyeshadows in the palette and each contains 0,85 g of product, so the whole palette contains 10,2 grams. 

I've tried all of the eyeshadows so far, but I have a limited amount of brushes available right now, so I believe I'm not getting the best out of the couple shimmery ones. They are all wonderfully pigmented (surprisingly well actually), blend nicely and create a variety of looks, everything from something simple for everyday, to more intense smokey eyes. If you're into warm toned eyeshadows you won't regret getting this - I'll post a full review once I use it some more.

The last item I picked up is the Super Shock eyeshadow in Amaze. The shade is an 'ultra-glittery' bronzed copper and has that interesting cushiony creme-to-powder texture and great pigmentation. There is 2,1 g of product inside and once I apply it onto the eyes it looks like I've invested a lot more time applying eye makeup than I actually did. The lasting powder is nice and I've tried wearing it as a base/primer for other pressed powder eyeshadows and it seems to do a decent job at preventing them from creasing and fading. It is best applied with fingers.

Have you tried any products from the brand before? Do you have any recommendations on what else I should try from Colourpop?

  1. Amaze je čudovit. Jaz imam 4 super shock senčila in bi definitivno še kakšnega. Mi je pa škoda, ker se mi je Game Face že precej izsušila, ker jo veliko uporabljam in formula ni več tako lahka za nanašanje. Ampak saj to je verjetno za pričakovati pri tej kremni formuli. Btw priporočam Game Face, če imaš rada bronzy copper odtenke :).

    Yes, Please!...je moj odgovor na paleto :D. Jaz prav tako kot ti obožujem palete s toplimi odtenki - trenutno sem še vedno obsedena z Zoeva Caramel Melange (če rabiš kak predlog za zapravljanje :D ). Bi jo imela, ampak hočem kupit, če bo še kdaj free poštnina. Seveda bo takrat paleta itak out of stock, tako da sem se že rahlo sprijaznila, da ne bo moja :).

    1. Bom dodala Game Face na WL, bronzy copper odtenkov ni nikoli preveč :P :) Formula je res zanimiva, tako da z veseljem dodam še kakšen odtenek v kolekcijo.

      Yes Please! sem poskušala že zadnjič naročiti, ampak je bila paleta v manj kot 10 min razprodana, tokrat mi jo je pa uspelo dobiti :) Res je lepa in popolna za poleti/jeseni, manjka mi le dovolj svetel champagne odtenek za osvetljevanje. Zoevino Caramel Melange imam tudi nagledano.. če se ne motim sta obe del stalne kolekcije, tako da se mi ne mudi z nakupom, ti pa lahko tudi brez problema počakaš ko bo naslednjič brezplačna poštnina :)
