Over the past two years I have accumulated a TON of ColourPop Cosmetics. They quickly became one of my favourite brands when I realized just how affordable their products are for the quality you get. ColourPop isn’t just good “for the price”. ColourPop is good period! It’s one of the main reasons why I was so happy to join their affiliate team last month. Today I’m sharing with you the best of ColourPop with my my Top 10 ColourPop Cosmetics products. Let’s jump in!

The Best Of ColourPop Cosmetics 2019
Dream St. is a collaboration between ColourPop and one of my favourite YouTubers, Kathleen Lights. She is also the mastermind behind the ColourPop Zodiac Collection, and my favourite nail polish brand KL Polish (which is unfortunately no longer a business). Basically anything that Kathleen touches I love.
Dream St. has beautiful blendable mattes and the Colour Story is a dream to work with (no pun intended). I love the contrast between the warm fiery shades and the cooler, water bearer inspired shadows. The quality of this palette is top notch!

This palette is a collaboration with Karrueche, as was the She Palette. I know that Brown Sugar is just a neutral palette but I honestly love it so so much. I included it in my 2018 favourites as well as my recent June Favourites and it’s still one of my most reached for palettes sixvf months later. In the beauty community we tend to move from new release to release and forget about our older products, but not with this beauty!
Something about the charcoal shade combined with warm browns and oranges speaks to me. These shades are almost impossible to over blend and I can wear them to the office or out for dinner. I think the Brown Sugar Palette well deserves it’s #2 spot.

My review of this palette is my most viewed post of all time. This year I recreated all of the makeup looks I did with the Give It To Me Straight Palette and came up with a Valentine’s Day Lookbook themed around these shades.
The Mauve Color Story is gorgeous and can be used for anything from daytime looks to evening smokey eyes. I often wear this palette to family gatherings because I know I can create a subtle look with these shades that won’t let me down. I’ve mentioned before that my parents are very conservative (at least my Dad is) so I try to find a balance of glam and natural. Give It To Me Straight gives me that balance.

I know that the Super Shock Shadows were ColourPop’s first launch ever, but I don’t really reach for them all that much. I detest their matte super shock formula (sorry!) but I really like working with the Ultra Glitter finish. Tea Party is a sparkly pink shadow that has lasted 2 years without drying out somehow.
This is my favourite eye shadow topper to wear with the Too Faced Peachy Matte Palette and it’s beautiful on it’s own as well.
I recently reviewed ColourPop’s BFF Mascara in the shade Blue Ya Mind, and let me tell you, this shade is seriously FUN! At 26 I still love playing with colour even though I feel like I should be settling into neutrals and playing bridge on weekends or something like that. And visiting the old folks home to reminisce about the “good old days”.
I guess I’m not THAT ancient yet, and the fact that I love this striking blue mascara reaffirms that fact for me. This mascara gives me a good amount of curl and it never clumps or flakes. The colour lasts all day and because I wear glasses it tones the effect down so I feel like I’m secretly a badass.

I was confused about Flower SZN because it honestly feels and looks like a matte finish despite being sold as a crème lipstick. I don’t understand! But it looks gorgeous on the lips. I’ve worn it in several looks already, most notably in my Sweet Talk Palette Review.
This lipstick is pigmented as hell and wears for hours without noticeable fading around the centre of my lips. This is a bright colour that I’m actually comfortable wearing to work because of how naturally it fades — I don’t need to worry about looking like a clown or getting lipstick on my teeth!
*Unfortunately this shade of lipstick is no longer available, but there are so many new shades that have come out since!
#7. ColourPop Lippie Stix | Matte Formula
I’m sad that ColourPop is focusing more on Lux Lipsticks than their original Lippie Stix. The Lippie Stix shade selection isn’t nearly as good anymore and I feel like Lippie Stix are rarely talked about. The Matte and Matte X Lippie Stix are some of the best matte lipsticks I’ve ever worn.
The satin formula isn’t my favourite but the matte lippie stix are crazy pigmented, long wearing and never, ever cake into lip lines or accentuate them. Why aren’t they focusing on these anymore!? Unfortunately my favourite matte lippie stix shades aren’t available anymore but there is still a limited selection on the website Here.
I’ve never reviewed the Lux Lipstick formula on my blog. I now have four of these lipsticks in two different finishes but I’m torn about reviewing them because I’ve had different experiences will all four lipsticks.
Brick is a stand out for me. It lasts longer on my lips that LA Lady and it’s actually more red toned than brown. Online it looks brown but it has a rusty undertone that never came through on the promo pics. I’m definitely a fan!
*This lipstick is also no longer available.
I got to try my first Super Shock Highlighters in December when I placed my Christmas Haul Order. These highlighters feel super wet to the touch and even after six months they show no signs of drying out in palette form.
I get compliments on how ethereal my glow is when I wear these highlighters and I much prefer them to ColourPop’s Pressed Powder Highlighters which don’t have as much WOW factor. My This Is For You pressed powder highlighter palette is lovely on occasion but when I want my highlight to be blinding I go for Dream Sequence.
Unfortunately this highlighter palette is no longer available but you can still buy super shock highlighter singles online.
I wasn’t expecting miracles when ColourPop branched out into lip scrubs and lip balms. I haven’t tried their lip balms but I have worn their So Juicy Glosses so you can check out that review!
ColourPop’s lip scrub is now my favourite scrub ever. I’ve tried the Bite Beauty Scrub, the Fresh Beauty Scrub and I’ve made quite a few lip scrub concoctions at home but ColourPop’s Razzle Dazzle Lippie Scrub takes the cake.
This scrub tastes like raspberries and bubble gum and it’s extra soothing and nourishing on the lips. It helps to buff away dead and dry skin but it’s gentle enough that I don’t feel like it’s damaging the skin. And it’s only $8, which is much more affordable than the higher end scrubs on the market.
What are your favourite products from ColourPop?
I have so many more palettes and individual products that I love from CP but these are the top ten that stood out to me. I’ve featured many of these products in past monthly YouTube & blog favourites and I genuinely enjoy and recommend them all.
While I love all of the products mentioned there are certainly products from ColourPop (and any brand really) that I didn’t enjoy and don’t recommend. For example the No Filter Foundation is the bane of my existence as I’m trying to finish the bottle in my 2019 project pan. The No Filter Foundation Stix also wasn’t my cup of tea and I have yet to find a way to make the Super Shock Blushes work for me.
With any brand there will be hits and misses, but luckily most of my ColourPop Cosmetics collection has been a hit. If you want to hear more make sure to check out my extensive collection of ColourPop Reviews. Catch you later! x
