So I didn't even know that Colourpop would ever ship to the UK, so I went and purchased a few from eBay a couple months back even though they were a little more pricey. So I decided to share with you all the shades that I purchased on Ebay with swatches so that you guys get an idea of how they'd look on medium/dark complexions. I did not swatch them on my lips but I do have a few pictures on my instagram of myself wearing some of these shades, so I've just uploaded them instead.
At first I wasn't a fan of liquid lipsticks because of how drying they were on my lips. They were my first ever liquid lipsticks so I just wasn't comfortable with the dry feeling of them. But over time I tried different methods of applying them and found that it is best if you apply lip balm right before you apply the lipstick and also make sure that you've got no foundation all over your lips as it would make it dryer.
I hope you all enjoyed this blog post. Let me know which one is your favourite shade. I do have a few Colourpop products that I want to get my hands on when the day finally arrives. And I also have a feeling that the site will probably breakdown on the day haha! I've listed the shades and mini reviews of each shades below :)
|Left to right: Clueless, Teeny Tiny, Tulle, Bumble, Kae, Limbo, Guess|
Clueless: Very pigmented, barbie pink shade.
Teeny Tiny: Very pigmented, purplish pink with a cool grey undertone.
Tulle: One of my favourite. Very pigmented, warm dark pink with a brown undertone.
Bumble: Another one of my favourite. A peachy pink perfect for summer.
Kae: Unfortunately wasn't happy with the colour as it doesn't look like the orangey brown shade from the packaging. Looks similar to Limbo but a little lighter. But I mixed it with a bit of 'Tulle' as you can tell from the picture below, which gave a shade that looks a little closer to the colour from the packaging of Kae. But great pigmentation.
Limbo: Another one of my favourites. A dark brown shade which is a popular dupe to Kylie's lip kit in the shade 'True Brown K'. Very pigmented as well.
Guess: Pigmentation is not that great, needs more than one coat, but overall love the colour. Great for a dramatic makeup look.
