A few weeks ago I learned that ColourPop was having free international shipping. Or really, they had lowered the minimum for international free shipping and eliminated the minimum for the US. I was like YAAAS!
Although ColourPop is beginning to be sold at Sephora the collection is limited, so most products I want I need to buy directly from ColourPop’s website. After almost a month of waiting my haul is finally here. ColourPop accidentally sent me the wrong order, but luckily they let me keep all the extra items! I paid customs on the wrong order so ColourPop generously marked my items as worth $0.01 each once they resent the package to evade a second customs charge.

The ColourPop My Little Pony Palette retails for $16USD and contains 12 x 0.85g eyeshadow pans ranging in shades from oranges to pinks/purples to blues and teals. The palette contains matte, satin, and metallic finishes.
As soon as I saw this collaboration I was head over heels. I didn’t watch my little pony as a kid so most of the recent My Little Pony Movie collabs from other brands were lost on me but this palette was different. I was debating buying the mini Huda Beauty Electric Palette, but this had similar colours for two thirds the price.
Each shade is named after one of the My Little Ponies. There isn’t a single shade that I don’t feel like I’m in love with already. I’ll write a full review with swatches once I’ve had time to play with it.
ColourPop’s No Filter Concealer retails for $6USD and comes in 15 different shades. It claims to deliver a “creaseproof, matte finish.”
I originally saw this concealer in a Kathleen Lights ColourPop PR unboxing a few months ago. It looked like something that might work for me, and at the retail price of $6 it was a steal. Kathleen said that this concealer oxidizes so I chose the lightest shade Fair 5. I probably would have been fine with Fair Neutral 10, but I’d rather be safe than sorry.
This Lipstick shade was part o the ColourPop 2017 Holiday Collection and retails for $6USD. ColourPop’s Ultra Matte Lipsticks claim “in one smooth swipe, intense color payoff that dries down to a super matte, transfer-proof finish.”
I didn’t need another matte lipstick in my collection, but I really liked the look of the swatch. The packaging was supposed to have pretty little stars all over it but I guess they ran out of holiday packaging and sent me the regular packaging after they had to reship my order. It’s pretty drying, but it doesn’t settle into lip lines as much as the ColourPop satin lipstick that I own.
Mamacita retails for $6USD and is part of the ILUVSARAHII Collaboration.
I’ve had my heart set on acquiring a vampy dark lip for this Holiday season. I was planning on ordering a Kat Von D or Too Faced Lippie, but when I saw the free shipping deal I decided I might as well order one from ColourPop for a fraction of the price. Mamacita has pretty gold packaging — even the box it came in is lovely! It swatches a deep dramatic burgundy which is exactly what I was looking for.
