My First ColourPop Cosmetics Experiences ♥ ft. In Bloom Collection, Lumiere, Frida & Wisp Swatches

I have recently started a new position at work and this new position is a lot more serious than what I used to do, having to learn new things, I knew that my job would affect my blog; I had planned to quit my blog completely as I knew I wouldn't be able to post as much as I used to, but some of my blog readers weren't too happy about the idea, so I have decided to keep my blog, treat it like a hobby and post when I can. 

Deep down I love my blog, I feel like I have come a long way and I am really proud of it; I read it as much as you guys do and I am not willing to quit this blog, not now, not in the future.

Anyway, today I am very excited to share with you my first ColourPop experience and I also want to share with you swatches of the items I purchased.

Most of the time I assume everyone already know about the brand etc, because I am always the last one to follow the new trends, I always feel like by the time I pick up this new thing, it is already old news to every other beauty lover. So I don't tend to talk too much about the brand, but since this is my first time experiencing with ColourPop Cosmetics, I might as well introduce it a little, just incase anyone is wondering?! Heheh ~

ColourPop Cosmetics is a colourful and affordable beauty brand made in Los Angeles, the brand features a wide range of lippie stix with matching lip liners, eyeshadow and pretty pigments; and they have recently came out with a collection of blushes and bronzers. ColourPop also does awesome collabs with well known YouTubers and bloggers like: shaaanxo and Coffee Break With Dani (both are my favourites). I love that their pricing are as affordable as five dollars per lippie stix and their qualities are top notch! 
This is my first time experiencing with ColourPop Cosmetics and it is my first time buying directly from them. I was very impressed with the way my package arrives in, non of the products comes damaged or missing, all the products came packed very well with layers and layers of foam pads. From the day I placed my order online, it took about five days for my package to be ship out and once they have shipped my order, I get an email with the tracking number. I was quite surprised when my order arrived within four days! I was a bit shocked actually! Shocked in a good way of course!
One thing that gets me very excited about ColourPop Cosmetics is their prices. Lippie Stix, Lip Pencils, Eyeshadows and Pigments are only $5 each (all prices are in American dollars), and Bronzers and Blushes are only $8 each. ColourPop also puts together sets of products that range from $20 ~ $39 each, but when you do the calculation, the pricing is exactly the same as when buying each of the products on its own, they don't overcharge you with sets, nor do they give a discount.
Shipping prices are calculated by weight, and as usual the Americans often get free shipping if purchase more than a certain amount; lucky Americans! The shipping price for my order was $20.63 USD, it is too expensive in my opinion, but they do arrive within four days, so I can't really complaint, right?!
Yes, I admit, I did questioned its quality before I place my order ~ I am not saying that all cheap products has bad qualities, but I did have a few experiences with dollars price tag and a shit product quality, I guess I am just a bit cautious, since this is my first time experiencing with ColourPop. Of course ColourPop did not disappoint! Their qualities are top notch! I have only tried their Blushes, Lippie Stix, Highlighter and Lip Pencils (just all the products I will be showing you below) and each of these products are very pigmented, they are long wearing and I guess you will have to scroll down to see the swatches yourself, to understand why I think these are some amazeball stuff!

I struggled a little when choosing a few products to try, seeing as everything on the ColourPop website is so affordable and all the products are so colourful and pretty, I had the urge to add everything into my shopping cart. I end up choosing the In Bloom set from the collection section, the set contains three blushes and three lippie stix, just the right amount of products for a ColourPop newbie to try and experience with.

ColourPop In Bloom (USD $39.00) is a collection created by celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg, the set includes three blushes in Tongue Tied (a bright warm coral with a matte finish), Double Dip (a soft peach with subtle highlights and a satin pearl finish) and Hysterical (a cool toned plum pink with a matte finish); also included in the set is three lippie stix in Sweet-Thing (a cool toned medium true pink with a cream finish), Freshman (a deep hot pink with a cream finish) and Frenemie (an electric warm toned coral with a cream finish).

ColourPop Highlighter in Wisp is described as a golden champagne with highly reflective hues of gold duo chrome finishes. ColourPop has recently released a range of highlighter with fifteen shades to choose from and they are priced at USD $8 each. I received mine as a free gift when spent over $40, not gonna lie, the free highlighter promotion was the main reason I finally decide to order from ColourPop Cosmetics.

ColourPop Lippie Stix (USD $5.00) in Frida is created by one of my favourite YouTuber, Coffee Break With Dani ~ the colour is described as a warm mid tone nude pink with a satin finish; the matching Lippie Pencil (USD $5.00) in Frida has a same colour description as the lippie stix, but I feel like it is a little bit darker than the lippie stix. As you see from the lip swatch below, it looks so much better when worn the lippie stix with the lippie pencil, the whole look just seems so much neater compare to my lip swatches from the In Bloom collection above.

ColourPop Lippie Stix (USD $5.00) in Lumiere is created by YouTuber Katheen Lights, it is described as a dusty mauve pink with a matte finish. The matte formula glides on smoothly, it did not drag during application, but it does feels quite drying when worn. The lip colour is a bit darker than I have expected, but it is still a beautiful dusty mauve.

All the ColourPop Lippie Stix applies smoothly, especially the cream finishes, I feel like they just melt into my lips without getting messy. I love that the Lippie Stix has a candy / cookie and cream scent, a bit too over the top when first applied, but it does fade away within seconds. Each of the Lippie Stix and Lippie Pencil is very very pigmented! Same goes to the blushes and the highlighter, the quality is obviously too good for its price!

After my first experience with ColourPop Cosmetics, I am just totally in love with the brand and I can see plenty of future orders coming my way, hehe! Not only are their products and prices so amazing, they also have an excellent customer service that deserve a shout out!
