My First Colourpop Haul!

My First Colourpop Haul
Last month I made my first Colourpop order after a year or two of obsessing over everyone else's hauls, I finally bit the bullet and made my first wonder over to the Colourpop website. I have no idea why it took me so long as I've always thought their products looked absolutely gorgeous and are super affordable (once you come to terms with the import charges!). I knew I needed to try their liquid lipsticks and I couldn't just stick to one or two, I wanted to try a few different formulas. I also couldn't resist a cheeky little palette and a couple of lip liners to go with my new lippies.

The first type of liquid lipstick I knew I needed to try were the Ultra Satin Lips. I love a satin formula it's so comfortable to wear but gives a gorgeous soft matte finish. I haven't tried these on the lips yet, but whilst swatching on my hand in my unboxing video, the formula felt so creamy and comfortable with insane pigmentation! I picked up:
Echo Park | A warm peach nude - it looks lot darker once swatched on my pale skin than in photos online, I can't wait to see how it looks on.
Dopey | A warm purple mauve - perfect for Autumn!
ILUVSARAHII 951 | A warm nude brown - I love this on the website, but I'm a bit nervous to try this myself as I don't tend to go for darker browns like this, but I'm also very excited!

My First Colourpop Haul Swatches
Left - Right | Beeper Liner & Lipstick, 951 Liner & Lipstick, Dopey Liner & Lipstick, Echo Park & Fairy Floss
I also picked up an Ultra Glossy Lip in Fairy Floss. I thought this would be the perfect everyday lip gloss that will look gorgeous for everyday wear. It's a pretty nude peach shade that will be great coming into Spring and Summer. I did actually wear this last week and my friend complimented the formula saying my lips look full and pretty!

I also wanted to try an Ultra Matte Lip. I only picked up one because I was a bit nervous about the matte formula and the chances of this being uncomfortable and drying. I chose Beeper, a warm brown similar to 951 but with a taupe hint to it. The formula is very thin but super high pigmented. I've only swatched this on my hand as yet, but it does look gorgeous on first application and I can already tell the staying power is insane as it won't scrub of my hand! It will be interesting to see how this holds out in everyday life.

I also bought a few of Colourpop's Lippie Pencil's to go with my new liquid lipsticks. The liners feel super creamy to apply and of course they're very pigmented, I cannot wait to see if they have the staying power. I chose three Lippie Pencils:
Dopey | It's described as a warm mauve just like the matching Satin Lip, but in fact I think it's a lot lighter. To me it's more like a purple with a hint of pink.
ILUVSARAHII 951 | This is described as being a little darker than the 951 Satin Lip to compliment the shade, but again I think this is actually a shade or two lighter. 
Beeper | A warm brown shade lighter than the Matte Lip.
I usually prefer my lip liner to be darker than the shade I'm wearing, so to be honest with you I am a little bit disappointed that I've found all of the liners to be lighter than their matching liquid lipstick. I would have thought they'd be at least the same shade, if not slightly darker. This doesn't mean I'm disappointed in the actual product though, I will still try them with their pairs and see how they look on the lips and I can always use them with other lippys!

My First Colourpop Haul Give It To Me Straight Palette
The last thing I bought was the Give It To Me Straight eyeshadow palette. I couldn't resist the gorgeous warm burgundy and copper shimmers. I know I have so many palettes like this but it's just so beautiful and so affordable at $16! On first impressions the shades are so gorgeous and there's a lovely mix of metallics and mattes. The formulas are lovely and soft and high pigmented to swatch but of course I will do a full review once I have tried the palette. At the moment the shads I'm most excited to try are:
Fortnight | A metallic rose burgundy.
Candid | A metallic warm copper.
Straight Up | A metallic warm golden nude.

I absolutely love the look of all my new Colourpop goodies and I can't wait to try them. Of course I'm sure I will be back with some full reviews for you. The products that stand out to me right now are the Ultra Satin Lips in Echo Park & 951, the Ultra Glossy Lip in Fairy Floss and of course the give It To Me Straight Eyeshaodw Palette!

  2. I adore the Ultra Satin Formula, the matte ones are awful but these ones are incredible. I 100% recommend the highlighters too if you order again.

  3. I'm quite obsessed with colour pop. For a while I was making order after order and while its been a few months I'm definitely over due for another order, especially to get that give it to me straight palette. I just love their wide shade range, they have every shade possible for everything they come out with. I do love their lip products as well. I personally love the ultra glossy lips, I like the ultra-satin but hated the ultra matte (As they were drying AF). Once you start with colour pop, you can't stop.

    1. Oh I definitely think I will be ordering more! I'm really enjoying the satin lips at the moment, the formula is lovely and so long lasting - I even eat and brushed my teeth after and I didn't need to re apply! I haven't tried the matte, but only bought one to give it a try as I knew they were very hit and miss!

  5. Love all these swatches! Your eye shadow palette is gorgeous! I recently posted a Colourpop haul on my own blog! (https://www.thehappyarkansan.com/blog/first-impressions-colourpop-cosmetics). I loved all the products I have tried. I am excited to try their super shock eye shadows, though, because they look absolutely beautiful.

  7. The satin lip formula is my favourite. They’re so comfortable compared to the matte formula. I also need to try out their palettes. I’ll be sure to order one(possibly two) when I next order x
