Colour Pop Lip and Highlighter Haul

Colour Pop Lip and Highlighter Colour

Colour Pop is an American brand that I had seen a lot of bloggers raving about and I was planning on picking some bits up when I go to Florida in August but luckily for me I got a chance to try it earlier. I got a message from Lauren from Blonde Vision saying she was planning on buying some bits and if a few of us went in together we could split the delivery and tax charges and it wouldn’t end up costing anyone an arm and a leg.

Colour Pop Haul Lip and HighlightersColour Pop Super Shock Highlighter Set - Lunch Money, Smokin' Whistles and Stole The Show

I am obsessed with highlighters right now so I knew that I definitely wanted to pick up some of these. My go to highlighters are Urban Decay and Anastasia Beverly Hills and I had heard talk of the Colour Pop highlighters being just as good. And how did they measure up you ask, well they definitely did not disappoint and now I really struggle to decide which highlighter to wear on a night out.

I picked the Colour Pop Super Shock Highlighter Set which included three shades; Lunch Money, Smoke N Whistles and Stole The Show. Lunch Money is a soft light gold shade, Smoke N Whistles is a cool-toned pink champagne shade with silver highlights, and Stole The Show is a warm silver shade with flashes of pink, silver and gold. ColourPop advise using either a flat synthetic cheek brush or a duo fiber brush, with the synthetic brush giving more coverage whereas the fiber brush will give you a more sheer and airbrushed look.

You may have noticed that I was a very bad blogger and one of the highlighters has been used prior to me taking pictures. We placed the order around Christmas time but unfortunately due to me being ill and having to cancel on some plans I didn’t get around to seeing Lauren until her birthday last month so you can imagine how excited I was to finally get my hands on my goodies. I just couldn’t contain my excitement and just had to test them out straight away but I managed to refrain myself from trying them all.

Out and About Lip Bundle - Time Square, Baracuda and ViperOut and About Lip Bundle - Time Square, Baracuda and Viper Swatches

Although the blog name would suggest I am a glitter gloss girl, a few years ago my preference completely changed and I became a lipstick only girl, and a matte girl at that. Glam Glitz Matte Lipstick doesn’t have quite the same ring to it though does it. I have however always been a little intrigued by liquid lipsticks and when I saw the Out and About Lip Bundle, containing three matte liquid lipsticks in shades Time Square, Baracuda and Viper, I decided to get that too.

This set seemed to made for me as it has the three shades that I mainly switch between in my make up looks. Viper is a dusty rose shade from the purple family, and my all time favourite lipstick is Urban Decay’s Rapture which is very similar so I definitely wanted to see the comparison. Viper is a slighter deeper shade but I think this is mainly due to Rapture having a more creamy consistency, but Viper has a stronger staying power, I had to scrub my arm raw to remove those swatches.

Baracuda is a warm deepened rose shade and I haven’t actually worn it yet as when first applied it’s a bit too dark of a colour for my pale complexion and I’m too impatient to wait for it to settle. I also think it has less of pink look than on the photos on the website so maybe I’ll pop that one away and try it out the next time I get myself a spray tan or when I go on holiday. Finally, Time Square is a muted pink beige shade, and less face it girls you can never have too many nude lip colours. You just can’t go wrong with it!

I attempted to take some swatch photos of the highlighters but I couldn’t quite capture the beauty or the true depth of the shades in a picture. I did however get a pretty good video of them on Snapchat so I have include that for you all to get a better look at the highlighters and how the colour holds up when it’s in direct sunlight. They’re just so pretty! I’ll definitely be picking some up when I go to America, and I have a feeling I’ll be getting a few orders from friends whilst I’m over there.

    I love the colours you’ve picked! I’ve been dying to try ColorPop eyeshadows and liquid lipsticks too, but never even thought to ask if any of my friends or fellow blogger pals wanted to go together on those.

    I really like the shades of the lip glosses and being matte, they definitely give you an elegant look. The highlighters have some really nice shades as well, i like that they have a bit of sparkle in them as well.

    I just posted my first colourpop haul today! So far I’m in love with their shadows and lippie stix, but I haven’t had chance to try out the highlighter or the liquid lip kit properly yet, I can feel a second order brewing already!
