Colourpop Most Popular Eyeshadows and Lippie Stix UNSPONSORED Review

Like many other people who have nothing better to do but to watch Youtube videos, I was looking at bunch of makeup reviews when I came across ColourPop eyeshadow in the color "sequin". I found so many people raving about how pigmented their eyeshadows and lip sticks are, and it especially caught my attention as everything was for only $5. I've probably had the worst experiences when it comes to drugstore brands and their eyeshadows getting all flakey on my eyelids, so given the price I had my highest doubts about this brand as well. However, with the $5 discount for all new customers and a free shipping on order above $30, I could not resist but whip out my card like it was nobody's business.

I knew I needed the eyeshadow in "sequin," but after doing some heavy Youtube searches I found their purple and red lippie stix that I immediately knew I also had to have. These days I am a little too obsessed with the color purple so I have been searching for purple lip sticks, but as someone who does not put on makeup on a daily basis I wasn't so sure if I could justify getting purple lipsticks in every shade that I desired. But with ColourPop cosmetics' affordable price, I decided why not give them a try.

These came 14 days after ordering it, and that was 8 days past the estimated delivery date. I was far from being happy, but after all I did not expect much from USPS especially after all the snow that we were getting in Chicago. I am just thankful that it made it through.

So here's what I got after searching through and through the web for the perfect shades of beauty, and all for $35 (WHAT?! I KNOW RIGHT?!) 

For Lippie Stix, I got the shade Grind, Brills, Heart On, Bossy, and Clique. 
For eyeshadows, I got the shade Get Lucky, Sequin, and Game Face.

So those Youtube videos were not kidding about how awesome these eyeshadows actually are. Gorgeous shades in such a creamy texture that just glides on. Plus, their eyeshadows were not tested on animals, so what else can I say?

Overall, Get Lucky and Game Face are everything that I had expected from coppery and gold eyeshadows, but Sequin is everything but more! It is such a beautiful rosy pink shade with a hint of gold, and it doesn't make your eyes look like you've been crying for hours and hours. I personally prefer eyeshadows that are matte, but these were not overly glittery or cheap looking at all. After all, me wearing a glittery eyeshadow is just something that is unheard of. 

I was wearing Sequin on my lids the other day, and I received so many compliments! It does not crease at all, and stayed on quite beautifully even without a primer. However, I do recommend using your fingers with these as my eyeshadow brush did not do anything except leave some glitters on my eyelids.

Sequin is such a perfect shade for a daily makeup, and Get Lucky and Game Face for a girl's night out!

Swatched from left to right is Grind, Brills, Heart On, Bossy, and Clique. 
Every single one of ColourPop Lippie Stix comes with a matching lip pencil that compliments the shade, but then I ended up with a shopping cart totaling some 150 dollars. So I made a budget friendly decision to just try their lip sticks, see how they work, find the colors that I like, and then get those matching lip pencils if necessary. 

ColourPop Lippie Stix are fabulously pigmented. They all contain Shea butter, Vitamin E, mango, and avocado to keep your lips moisturized--the only one that felt the most matte and a bit dry was Brills. 

Grind is a deep purple shade perfect for a grunge look and it will satisfy your purple desires. Brills is a pretty lavender purple color, but this is probably one of the ones that is the least flattering for my skin tone. I don't think I will be using this one too often, but only for those days when a lavender lip matches whatever floral outfit I have on--or if I end up dying my hair lavender.

Heart On is a deep hot pink that is not neon. As much as I love neon colors, I wanted something that will make my lips pop without turning my skin to look more yellow and orange, and this was the exact shade that I wanted.

And why not add some red to this entire ColourPop collection? Bossy is one of their most popular ones, and it is a gorgeous shade of pure red--not too bloody, not too pink. Clique has more of an orangey-red shade and it seems to pop a bit more on my lips than Bossy, and most importantly it gives this beautiful classy look to my makeup.

I love how I can splurge on makeup without feeling guilty at all! Quite honestly, I was really impressed with the pigmentation of ColourPop eyeshadows and Lippie Stix, and can't wait to pair these with my outfit! 

Which of these Lippie Stix shades do you like? What are your favorite budget friendly makeup brands?
