Hey everyone, welcome back for another ColourPop Haul! No, I don’t plan on making this a regular thing, but I’ve been constantly dreaming about the Double Entendre palette since it came out. I finally broke down and ordered it! Part of it was also that I completely ran out of brow products and needed a replacement. I was thinking about buying the ABH Brow Wiz for the first time but then I decided I should save some cash and try out both ColourPop brow pencils for half the price (even after conversion). It went down hill from there…
In order to keep myself accountable I kept my ColourPop haul to around $50USD to get free international shipping and I cancelled my FabFitFun subscription for the Spring season. FFF works out to around $75CAD after shipping so the costs balanced out.
I was very surprised that I didn’t have to pay any duties & fees this time around. My tracking info said the package was processed through Canadian customs but it arrived through Canada Post with no extra charge. It’s so weird, my last order costed less and got tagged for duties. I can’t figure out this shipping system!
I was torn between the Double Entendre, Dream St. & Give It To Me Straight eyeshadow palettes. It was so hard to decide between the three but I finally decided to forgo the Dream St. palette. I might order it eventually, but I’m content with the warm neutrals in the Double Entendre Palette and I already own the ColourPop MLP Palette which has similar shades to Dream St.’s Mermaid Boy, Water Bearer, and Kaleidoscope.
*Update: I DID order the Dream St. Palette later and it was TOTALLY worth it! Check out my review!
There are so many beautiful looks I’ve seen on YouTube from this palette. Judy C created such a gorgeous shimmery warm eye look with it in her review video that I couldn’t resist this palette. I didn’t have a full neutral palette so I decided it was high time I added one to my collection. I’m hoping it will become my everyday palette.

When the Give It To Me Straight Palette was first announced on ColouPop’s Instagram it immediately reminded me of the Huda Mauve Obsessions palette. Mauve is so trendy right now! Give It To Me Straight contains some lighter neutral shades for creating my day looks and I can pull in the deeper mauve metallics for evening wear.

ColourPop Lippie Stix in Aquarius
Aquarius (from the Kathleen Lights x ColourPop collab) slowly seems to be getting phased out so I wanted to pick it up before it was too late. I’ve been wanting to review the Lippie Stix formula for a while now but I only owned one shade and wanted to know if the formula was consistent. Aquarius looks like the perfect everyday nude lipstick!
ColourPop Bronzer in Private Party
I chose this bronzer because it was one of Kathleen Lights’s favourites in her 2018 Best of ColourPop video. I bought it for 20% off $8USD using her code. It’s not a big discount but every little bit helps. I recently finished my Ciate Bamboo Bronzer mini and It was time for something new! This bronzer is a little bit more orange/yellow on the skin than I was hoping for but it should look nice once the weather warms up and I get some sun.
Brow Boss & Precision Brow Pencils
I’m so excited to have good brows again! The Brow Boss Pencil is supposed to create a natural look where the Precision Brow is meant for definition (hello Instagram brows). I’m going to try out both, review them and make a comparison post. I have oddly dark eyebrows so I ordered the second darkest shades in both pencils. Having purple hair really throws off my brow game so I’ve been loving darker brows lately.

Extra: ColourPop Pressed Powder Single
Due to high demand there was a processing delay on my order. ColourPop included a pressed powder single in my package for the inconvenience. I never asked them to do this, once again I am floored by ColourPop’s customer service. They let me keep my Accidental Haul when they send me the wrong products by mistake and sent my real order afterwards marked as a gift so I wouldn’t have to pay customs again. Now they’re including freebies for processing delays! It’s no wonder this is my favourite beauty brand.
