I said in my collective haul last week that I had another Colourpop order on it’s way! The day after I’d got that post photographed and scheduled this all arrived, it probably would have been too large a post to include them all together any way, but I love seeing hauls and seeing why people decided to spend their money on certain items as sometimes it gives me inspiration for myself.
I was tempted to place a second order just a month after my last thanks to them running a 20% offer which was available on most of their items, but there were a handful that I picked that were brand new items that were excluded from the promotion. This ended up being a group order so I shared the postage and custom costs with a few friends and it arrived in one big box to my work.
BFF Volumising Mascara
Both Lora and Soph who I was ordering with put this in their orders, so I decided to go for one too. Honestly, at this moment in time I really didn’t need another mascara, I have loads in my stash piled up and ready to use, but I didn’t want them telling me it was the most amazing mascara ever and I’d regretted not picking it up! I’ve heard good and bad things about this from youtubers, but it’s got a hourglass wand, it’s volumising which is generally what I like – so I thought it was worth a go!
Lux Lipstick in Spring Roll
I’ve long been on the hunt for a replacement for my original MAC Brave lipstick and this looked close online. It’s definitely along the same lines and is one of the closest that I’ve found – it’s a neutral with a slightly peachy undertone. Swatches online of this are very mixed it seems to look really pink in some swatches – but luckily Colourpop’s own pictures didn’t mislead me! I really like the Lux Lipstick formula, I’ve reviewed a few in the past which you can find here if you’re curious! This is a new addition to the line from the Spring “Sweet Talk” limited edition collection.
Lippie Stix in Sike
I know what you’re thinking – that looks practically the same as the last lipstick and you’re right – it’s arrived and they are more similar than anticipated. I spotted this in the clearance section and I didn’t want to miss it being the perfect match for my old one. This one has a little more peach pigment so leans a bit less neutral than Spring Roll does, but it’s still a lovely colour and one which I think will get a lot of wear from!
It’s My Pleasure Eyeshadow Palette
I had the first two nine pan palettes that Colourpop released last year (Mar and Sol – reviews found here) and they made it to my year end favourites post as they were complete stand outs from the year. So when I spotted that there was some new palettes added and I had to get them. I’ve been loving bright monochromatic looks on other people and I’d been eyeing the Huda 9 palettes of (which I do have one of, and don’t like the formula of anywhere near as much as these).
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll already see that I’ve been using this one a lot already – I’ve been really drawn to purple recently and this one did not disappoint. A full review is already on it’s way for Friday!
Just My Luck Eyeshadow Palette
I’ve lusted after an Emerald Green eyeshadow palette for a while- this one wasn’t quite what I was after as the shades lean more towards a bluer kerry green, but I couldn’t not get it knowing how much I liked the other bright palettes last summer. I’ve not played around with this one as much yet, but I look forward to having a good play!
Ooh La La Eyeshadow Palette
Last but not least from the palettes was Ooh La La, and it’s a lovely selection of pinks. This one is more matte shades than shimmer, but it does have a beautiful few shades in. Some of the colours in here stand out to me as permanent – as I know I have a pan of Sandbar – but still I love that all of these colours are together and I can create a bright and fun colourful pink eye with this. Again I think this is another which will get a lot of use through the summer.
Pressed Powder Shadow in Imperial
This is a nice peachy terracotta matte shade which I thought would work really complimentary with some of the shades in my mostly Makeup Geek singles palette which has been neglected for a while and I needed something to make me pull it back out!
Swatches top to bottom – Pressed Single Shadow in Imperial, Lippie Stix in Sike, Lux Lipstick in Spring Roll.
And that’s it from this haul – reviews for a lot of these products are already in the works. I’m really excited about the eyeshadow palettes, I can’t wait to play with them, swatches for those will come in full in those posts.
What have you treated yourself to lately?
