Two hauls in one week? Yep. Which is why I won’t be buying any new makeup until 2019. 😂 (but seriously).
I was drawn in by the ColourPop holiday collection, and figured I may as well try a few more items from the brand that I’ve been hearing a lot about recently.
Here’s what I got along with my first impressions of each:
No Filter concealer in Dark 42
This concealer is a bit more matte than I was expecting. I prefer a hydrating concealer, but the next time I wear this I think I will try skipping the powder setting. I see zero creasing a few hours in, so that’s a good sign. I’m looking forward to trying this more.
No Filter Foundation Stix in Dark 175W
This product went on really easily and blended out (with a brush) super fast and with no streaking or splotchiness. It really just glided over my skin like a dream and left me looking airbrushed, but still natural. It also has really good coverage. I have to see how this holds up throughout the day, but so far…this is amazing.
Best in Brow Kit in Dark Brown (includes Precision Brow Pencil, Brow Boss Pencil, Precision Brow Colour & Brow Boss Gel, all in the Shade Dark Brown)
I used the Precision Brow Pencil, Brow Boss Pencil and Brow Boss Gel (yes, all three). I have to say, I don’t think I’ve ever done my brows so fast. I was really impressed. I also think the color of the products is perfect for my brows.
Crème Gel liner in DTLA
This eyeliner is so creamy omg, even moreso than my Urban Decay 24/7 liners. I have to see how well this wears, but so far so good on my top lash line. The one con is that the point wore away immediately. I couldn’t get a sharp line when trying to line my second eye because the point had completely dulled just that fast.
Jelly Much Shadow in Sweet Dreams
I really like this shadow. It is a really thick jelly, but it goes on super smoothly. It reminds me of the Marc Jacobs glitter, but less chunky and suspended in more of a gel. I didn’t notice any fallout at all from this during application nor during the wear. I applied it to my lids with a glitter glue and my fingers. On my lower lash line, I had no primer (only my concealer which had bee nest with powder) and used a small pencil brush.
Gliterally Obsessed in Wish Me Luck, Starfire & Dream About Me
Annoyingly, when I placed this order (which was before I posted about it in a Morning Makeup Musing), I had only seen this product on the product page. On that page, it is just listed as Gliterally Obsessed. No where on the page does it say that this is for Hair and Face/Body. Only on the Holiday Collection Set page is it listed as a body glitter. So, I have no use for these so. 🤬
Crème Lux Lipstick in Cinnamon
Although this is a cream formula, it is matte. It actually feels way more matte than I was expecting, and dries down to almost the equivalent of a liquid lipstick (it also doesn’t stick well to the inner rim of the lips). I think the color is beautiful, and since it is a creme it is pretty easy to apply. I just wish it adheres to my lips better. The one benefit of the dry down is that it is much more (but not 100%) transfer resistant than a normal cream lipstick and seems to last a long time. Since it’s a crème, it is also easy to reapply.
I just really needed a pencil sharpener for my lip and eye pencils. I like that this one has a cover to catch the filings.
💜 After testing everything out more thoroughly, I will come back with full reviews on each product. In the meantime, what are some of your favorite ColourPop products?
