Worth the Hype? ColourPop

IMG_7723

I’m going to be honest with you.  The reason I was drawn to this brand was because the shadows are really sparkly. There has been so much hype about this brand.

Recently ColourPop was having a promotion for their anniversary that you could get a free shadow with any purchase. That mixed with the email signup coupon of $5 off, I thought this was the perfect time to try ColourPop! I ordered the In Bloom kit which comes with 2 blush, 1 highlighter and 3 lippie stix. I also ordered 1 eye shadow and then got the free one. Lastly, I ordered another lippie stix in Frida. I figured this way I could try a little bit of everything they have to offer. And besides the coupon/freebie, the price is so good! So if these items work out I have a feeling this brand could really by a home run.  They also offer bronzers, but that is not something I was interested in so I passed.

IMG_7722Ok, so nothing will break in this box! As you can see it is really padded to protect the products. These products have a unique spongy/bouncy texture so there are tips on how to use them. Also, a handwritten note! I’m sure they have interns or teams of people just writing the notes and filling in names, but still a nice touch.

IMG_7732I actually received two of the same lip product in this kit. I wrote to ColourPop and they replied in under 24 hours saying they would send out the correct product that was not included. So because of that, the pics for frenimie will be separate. Great customer service.  I will be passing the extra lippie over to a friend, spread the love!

So overall, these products are so great. The shadows are easily applied with your finger and last a while, same with the blush. The lips are packaged in a way that make application simple and there is a mild vanilla scent.  Also, these stain a little which is something I LOVE in a lipstick.  The blush I used with a stipple brush, same with the highlight, and was pleased.  I’m happy to report that I have nothing bad to say about this brands products or customer service.

 Do you have anything from ColourPop? What do you think?

 Until next time, plant nothing but love.
