Every time I get an e-mail from Colourpop announcing a new product launch, sale, promotion, I can’t help but check it out. Most often than not I end up ordering a couple of things… Anyone else have this problem? No? It’s just me? Got it. This was my more recent Colourpop haul.
The last e-mail I got from Colourpop was announcing new Creme Lippie Stix. I ordered one of the shades so expect a review on that soon! The one before that was about their set of highlighters. Highlighters are one of the makeup products that are still somewhat of a mystery to me. This is the first time I actually buy a highlighter. The other two I have, have come in my Birchbox subscription. I ordered the Waffle trio of highlighters that comes with Scrumptious, Flexitarian, and Glazed, and I also ordered two Ultra Satin Lips, Calypso and Baracuda.
The highlighters are SO creamy. When I first got them I swatched them a little bit because I didn’t want to mess up how they looked until I took the photos for this blog post and I was very impressed. Usually when I swatch powdered products like pressed powders, blushes and bronzers, yes, it feels a little smooth but nothing like this. They are very sparkly so I think applying only a little bit will be enough especially if you don’t like the very glittery look. Hopefully the will be featured in my next month’s favorites!
If you’ve read my previous posts, you will know that I am a huge fan of Colourpop lipsticks. I mostly have their matte formula because those are the first ones I found out about, but in the last couple of months, I’ve loved the satin formula. They’re just as pigmented as their mattes, but less drying which I know it’s one of the main reasons why people steer away from matte lipsticks.
The two shades I ordered, Baracuda and Calypso, are very earthy tones and I am loving them. They feel very nice on the lips and they are very long lasting. I ate a pizza and the lipstick didn’t budge. Amazing.mattes, but less drying which I know it’s one of the main reasons why people steer away from matte lipsticks.
