ColourPop Spring Collection | Break It Down

Hello everyone! Today’s post is another instalment in my Break it Down series where I talk about a new & upcoming full makeup collection and discuss whether or not I think it’s worth it. I’ve done two of these posts so far, starting with the Kylie Cosmetics Valentine’s Day Collection and more recently the ColourPop x Zoella collection. I wasn’t planning on writing another Break It Down post so soon but then ColourPop went and announced their full spring collection. Surprise surprise, more ColourPop.

I won’t be using this series to preview individual products, but rather collections as a whole. Most of ColourPop’s seemingly random releases will get reviewed under the ColourPop Reviews tab on my blog separately but since this is a FULL collection… let’s talk about it!

ColourPop Spring 2019 Collection | Break It Down

Break it Down: ColourPop Spring Collection 2019

The 2019 Spring Collection from ColourPop launched on March 14th and contains a twelve pan eyeshadow palette, six Jelly Much shadows, six lux lipsticks, and six super shock blushes. The full collection retails for $143USD but of course you can buy all the products individually or in smaller sets.

I must say that the packaging really gets me. Normally Spring is my least favourite season but after the long and harsh winter we just had in Canada (polar vortex anyone?) I’m ready to see some blooming flowers and wear some peachy corals on my eyes.

Sweet Talk Eyeshadow palette

When I first saw the ColourPop Sweet Talk Eyeshadow Palette I though oh great, another one. But the more I looked the more I wanted it. Funny how that happens right? This palette is full of peachy shades that I probably already have (hello Too Faced Peachy Matte Palette) BUT they just look so pretty together with that orange & yellow shade. UGH ColourPop why are you doing this to me!?

I was excited when I found out that this is the first ColourPop eyeshadow palette to contain the super shock shadow formula! I’m a little bit worried about the shades drying out in palette form (I’m still checking my Dream Sequence Highlighter palette for signs of that) but I’m also intrigued. The palette will also include pressed glitters for the first time as well as their regular pressed powder matte & metallic shadows.

The Sweet Talk palette is a little more expensive than ColourPop’s other 12-pan palettes. Sweet Talk retails for $18USD and doesn’t contain a mirror. The super shock shadow contains 1.45g of product, the pressed powder shadows contain 0.9g and the pressed glitters contain 1g each. The palette as a whole contains 11.55g of product which is MORE than their standard palettes which typically contain 10.2g. The higher pricing of the Sweet Talk palette makes sense because the originals worked out to $1.568/g while this new palette works out to $1.558/g. the difference is within one cent, rounded.

Will I purchase: Yes! I ordered it to the post office so that it doesn’t show up at the old house after we move. I can’t wait! It’s going to be ColourPop month over here in April.

ColourPop Spring 2019 Jelly Much Shadows

Spring 2019 Jelly Much Shadows

I haven’t been all that interested in ColourPop’s Jelly Much Shadows from the start. I included them in my Fall Anti-haul last year and my stance on them still stands. I prefer eyeshadows, not liquid or jelly shadows. It’s just my preferred medium to work with. The shades do look pretty for those of you who like the formula!

The Spring 2019 Jelly Much Shadows can be purchased individually for $8USD. Each pot contains 6.5g of product for a total of $1.23/g.

Will I purchase: Nope!

ColourPop Spring 2019 Lux Lipsticks

Spring 2019 Lux Lipsticks

There are six Lux Lipsticks in the Spring 2019 Collection. They come in the cream formula which I preferred over the matte formula. I picked up a few lux lipsticks in my no filter foundation haul and I ordered another from the Brown Sugar Collection after falling in love with the Brown Sugar Palette.

I’m not the biggest fan of Lux Lipsticks for daily wear but I like them for pairing with my makeup looks for my eyeshadow palette reviews. The shades are pigmented and comfortable, I just never find the formula to last all that long. I still went ahead and ordered the second shade from the top, Flower SZN because I’ve been wanting a hot pink coral shade for spring.

All six lipsticks can be purchased together in the You Make Me Smile set for $42USD, or individually for $7USD (3.5g at $2/g)

Will I purchase: Yes! I picked up one shade and might get more at a later date.

ColourPop Super Shock Blushes Spring 2019

Spring 2019 Super Shock Blushes

The Super Shock Blushes from this collection look really cute! They come in such beautiful pops of orange and coral pink. I have tried their Super Shock Shadows and Super Shock Highlighters. I love anything in the super shock formula with a metallic or glitter finish, but I wasn’t the biggest fan of the matte shadows. I’m not sure if I’ll like the blushes for that reason but I went ahead and ordered the peachy blush at the very top of the photo.

Will I purchase: Already did!

Overall Thoughts

I feel MUCH more positive about this collection than I did about the Zoella collection. The packaging is back to normal and not overly cutesy like Zoella’s was and the products actually appeal to me. Now that it’s not 30 below I’m starting to think that Spring is coming afterall and this collection amplifies the feeling. The Spring collection feels flirty and sweet to me and I need more of that in my life right now with how insane my life has been. I’m here for all the pretty, happy things.

Are you picking up anything from the Spring Collection?

Stay tuned for my haul when it eventually does arrive! I’d love to hear your thoughts on this collection or any of ColourPop’s releases in general lately. There have been too many to count. I hope Spring finds you wherever you are (except for Australia & NZ, you guys already had it!). Talk soon x

    Out of this collection I want the palette, the Doves N’ Roses Jelly Much and the No Vacancy and Get Leid Blushes… But I still haven’t placed an order. I want to… but I’m trying to be cautious with money still… Hmmm….. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the palette! Great break down!

      I did get the Get Leid blush! It’s such a pretty color, I haven’t found the best way to apply it yet though 🤔

      I still need to pick up some glitter glue for the sweet talk palette, hopefully I can do that this weekend. Thanks for reading!

      Oh and if you do get the jelly much shadow let me know what you think!

      • April 6, 2019 / 2:00 pm

        I will! Polished and Inspired got some recently I think. The shade I want!

    I agree, this collection is calling to me too. I’m not sure I need it, but boy do I want it! Colourpop NAILED this one. The peach colours and the advertising backgrounds are so easy on my eyes haha. I just love the colour scheme. Ugh! I even managed to skip the villain’s stuff (and that was tough), but I may not be able to resist this. 😁 Headed there now … !

      The collection as a whole is so Springy and beautiful! I think they did a great job with everything, and I haven’t even gotten it in the mail yet! I hope that the palette is amazing.
      I actually saved some of their Spring instagram stories as wallpapers for my phone xD

    I’m so excited to try this collection! I placed an order a few days ago and it’s out for delivery right now! I got the palette, Jelly Much in Close to You, and the lipstick Ur Thriving. I’m very curious to see how the jelly eyeshadow play out after reading your review. I’ve never used liquid eyeshadow, let alone a jelly texture! Maybe I’ll just use it on it’s own on days I don’t feel like wearing a full face of makeup.

    Looking forward to see what looks you do!

      Yay!! Mine just made it across the border, I can’t wait for my Sweet Talk eyeshadow palette! I was looking at that lipstick shade too, it’s beautiful. I hope you love your products!

      I’ve never used the Jelly shadows, I just know that I wouldn’t like them from watching other videos. You might love them though!

  4. March 20, 2019 / 8:37 am

    I meant eyeshadow palette* lol. Forgot one word lol. But yeah, dont think I’ll be picking up any lipsticks because I have too many and just decluttered a ton. But if I get the chance to buy this palette, I may end up trying to purchase FRB!

  5. March 20, 2019 / 8:36 am

    I’m not up to date with whatever the hell is coming out so this post was great for me lol. I didn’t like anything from the Zoella collection, or at least nothing I would ever gravitate toward, not even packaging wise, but this spring collection is actually kind of intriguing. Especially the eyeshadow. Those are exactly the kind of shades I am looking for in a palette, I’m gonna have to convince hubby to let me get it. 😭😭

      I was so surprised that so many larger influencers seemed to really like the packaging, even Tati liked the packaging of the blush and I was like Really??? It’s so cutesy :S
      Good luck convincing him! My palette is supposed to be here soon 🙂

      • March 28, 2019 / 11:42 am

        I looked on CP and its sold out including the FRB set I really wanted I’m so bummed out. Lol.

          • April 3, 2019 / 12:38 am

            I left a comment on one of your videos where you talk about it briefly. I ordered it yesterday when I saw CP was having a sale.. I’m not proud of the amount of money I’ve been spending. I’m not broke but it’s been a lot… I finally broke my “no-buy” LMAO

            That’s where I’m at too. I’m planning on stocking up on necessities in the Spring Sephora sale, but May will be a no buy month again.

          • April 10, 2019 / 1:07 am

            I’m done for a while.. Maybe till October.. Hmm… challenge accepted LOL

    After I saw your order on IG stories, I caved and got some stuff too LOL. I was so annoyed when they were like “20% off site-wide!” and then nothing new was on sale… only ONE of the products I picked up (which was only like $4 regular price to begin with) was on sale.

    I heard that the Sweet Talk palette has a heavy duty magnetic closure to protect the SS Shadows from drying out! Not sure if it’s the same closure as your Dream Sequence highlighter palette, but it’ll be just as sturdy if not better. I didn’t pick the palette up cause I can’t justify getting yet another neutral/peachy palette, but I can see why people are interested in it.

    I ended up picking up two of the new Jelly Much shadows…I think they never appealed to me before because the older shades weren’t ones I would wear, but I think I’ve been collecting pressed eyeshadows for so long that in the last year or two I’ve really been itching to try new and innovative formulas to see if they work. I also picked up a SS blush too (can’t remember the shade though)…I’m worried they’ll be hard to use, but hopefully they will be great! The new Lux lipstick shades are absolutely gorgeous, but I didn’t love the formula of the two I already own, so I didn’t pick any up.

    Great breakdown of the collection 🙂

      That happened to me too! I think the only thing that I got 20% off was one product out of 6 or something like that.

      I hope it stays bouncy like my regular super shock shadows! If It didn’t have the glitters & SSS I don’t know that I would have bought it, It hope they’re worth it.

      Let me know if you like them! I know myself and I probably wouldn’t reach for them but if the perfect shade came along I might reconsider.
      That’s my problem, I didn’t love the Lux Lipsticks much either but I do use them for my makeup looks on here because the shades look so pretty. They just don’t wear well for me :S But I’m a sucker for new colors lol

      • March 19, 2019 / 9:48 am

        It sounds like it’s something they thought about when designing the palette, so hopefully it’ll be fine! The palette looks super pigmented.
        I’ll definitely let you know! I’m fascinated by anything jelly lol, but am curious to see what that kind of texture will be like on the eyes.
        They do look very nice in your makeup looks! Every time I see you wearing them in your photos, I’m always like “ohhh I should pull mine out to use” but then once I do I’m like “ehhh nope” lol.

          I’m sure it will be! My package is in Canada now so I should have it soon.

          Defintiely keep me updated!

          I completely understand that. I never wear them to work or out of the house!

  7. March 16, 2019 / 10:43 am

    The palette really reminds me of the Jeffree Star Thirsty palette without the pops of blue and yellow, those metallic glitery shades look very much like that palette. I just placed a joint order with some friends and I only opted for one of the lipsticks from this collection – seen as I just ordered the Zoella palette (I liked the colourstory) and I just ordered the three 9 pan palettes in the green, pink and purple ones. I didn’t need a fifth colourpop palette in less than 5 weeks lol!
    Fab round up!

      I didn’t even think of that, but you’re right, they have a very similar vibe! I was thinking that the Sweet Talk palette really needed a periwinkle blue to pull it together for spring.
      Haha yes I totally agree, 5 palettes is too much in such a short span. I’m excited for the green palette, I ordered it too! I hope you like it.

      Did you see the new Disney Villains palette they’ve announced? I’m not sure I’m going to buy it but when the disney designer collection came out I wished that they had included some villain-y shades lol

      • March 19, 2019 / 5:58 am

        I like the colour of the villains palette – I do agree it’s not particularly villainy though – though I don’t think of colour pop for dark shades it’s always neutrals and brights!
        I have lots of palettes which are similar to that one from Urban Decay – so I’ll be skipping that one!

          Yes that’s true, Colourpop doesn’t often do dark and moody shades all in one palette. I’ll wait to see some swatches and reviews before ordering it if I do decide I want it =/

  8. March 15, 2019 / 7:22 pm

    This collection looks lovely. I’m very intrigued by that palette having so many different textures!

      Me too! I was really intrigued by the new formulas in the palette. I hope it’s just as pretty in person!

  9. March 15, 2019 / 5:15 pm

    The palette looks pretty, can’t wait to see how you like it and what looks you create with it! The lipsticks look more red than I was expecting for spring but the colour you chose is stunning! The blush shades all look pretty and super wearable, which ones did you pick up?

      I’m expecting to be wearing a lot of coral this summer! I think you’d really like that lipstick, I know you love your bright colors!
      I hope it’s as pretty in person as it was on the website.
      I picked up the shade Get Leid of the blush, it’s the orangey peach one!

      • March 18, 2019 / 9:57 pm

        Bright lipstick is probably what I’m known for haha 😛 Peachy blushes are pretty!

  10. March 15, 2019 / 2:41 pm

    I’m such a sucker for a cute packaging. I might pick some things from this collection, too. The palette is a must, and actually, I love the jelly shadows! They are easier to work with than my initial thoughts! Creme lux lipsticks are my favorite lip formula from Colourpop and the blushes are all pretty and scream spring to me. Can’t wait for your review when your order has arrived!

      I’m happy to hear that you love the Jelly shadows! I’ve been curious about the formula before but I just know I wouldn’t reach for them since I rarely use my super shock shadows.
      The creme formula is really nice. I have one of the matte lipsticks and I didn’t like it as much. Have you tried the velvet blur lipsticks yet?
      Thanks for reading! I’ll update as soon as I can when my order comes in 🙂

  11. March 15, 2019 / 12:10 pm

    I completely agree with you. This collection as a whole intrigued me much more than the zoella one. The shades in the palette are super pretty. The blushes look stunning. While I don’t need another lipstick, the shades are still beautiful. Great breakdown! xxx

      I’m pretty excited for my order to arrive. I probably didn’t need any of this collection but sometimes it’s nice to splurge. And I didn’t go overboard either, just a palette, a lipstick and a blush 🙂
      Thanks for reading!
