As many of you already know, I live in Canada, so Colourpop is a little pricey because of the conversion rate and shipping. Luckily Colourpop was having a promotion where if you spend $50 or more, you get free international shipping. I got some of my cousins to order with me so that spending $50 would be easier to achieve and I finally got my products after what felt like years! (Jk, shipping isn’t to blame. I’m just an incredibly impatient person.)
I didn’t have natural light so the swatches are under a white light and then under regular light LOL
Beeper – “mid-tone taupe”
This is my go-to everyday lipstick. I just love this colour because I think it’s very flattering on me. Coincidentally at the time I was ordering, I was running out of this, so I just restocked. But here’s a picture of my face just in case you forget what it looks like.
Mess Around – “mid-tone grey beige”
Mess Around is the only satin finish lipstick I got and it’s the first one I’ve ever tried. I really wish I got more of them though, because for a non-matte liquid lipstick, it lasts SO. LONG. And it is just so comfortable to wear. It isn’t sticky when applying and when it dries, it doesn’t feel like you have any product on your lips.I think this would be the perfect muted colour for whenever I feel brave enough to do a bold eye look. Whenever that is….
Kae – “deep warm yellow brown”
Kae is one of the colours from Karrueche collab. It really reminds me of Limbo (featured in this MOTD), but Kae is more reddish brown, where Limbo is a true deep brown. Either way, I love this colour! And I love that the packaging on the bottle is rose gold as opposed to all silver.
Rooch – “deepened russet wine”
Look at how lifeless my eyes look. At this point, my lips are B E G G I N G for mercy. I now understand the pain that beauty gurus face when they swatch an entire collection of lipstick on their lips…
Rooch another colour from the Karrueche collab and I have wanted it since it got released pretty much. I think Rooch is a colour that would look flattering on anyone, regardless of skin tone. It is suuuuch a pretty deep red, like I am in love with how rich the colour is. I feel like this is the only colour I’ll be rocking around christmas time because it kinda reminds me of that time of the year. I think this colour is my favourite of all the ones I ordered.
Dukes – “dark blackberry in a matte finish”
I am pretty excited about this one because it’s dark and vampy so it’s perfect for the fall and winter season and this time I can genuinely say that I don’t own a colour like this. I truly believe that dark lips look great on any skin tone, even though dark colours may be a bit intimidating to some people. I struggled a bit putting this on, so I definitely recommend using a liner with this and applying with a lip brush or cleaning up the edges with concealer. Since this is a dark colour, it can be pretty unforgiving and any mistakes you make will definitely be visible. Besides that though, this formula is so comfortable and hydrating!
That concludes my Colourpop haul yall. I promised myself that after this order, I wouldn’t spend any more money on makeup that I don’t absolutely need until 2017. So with that being said, I think this will be my last haul for a little while. I’m sad just thinking about it, but I guess I’m still benefitting since I’ll be saving money… Have a good night! (Or day, depending on where in the world you’re reading this from)
