Since the start of September, I’ve been feeling really excited but also kind of bummed. I’m excited about the fall, pumpkin scented and flavored everything, nights by a crackling fire while sipping hot cocoa and the holidays, but at the same time I’m bummed that the summer season is close to being over.
Probably one of the more disappointing aspects of summer being over is the end of bright, fun summer shades from our favorite makeup brands. To make way for the coming fall season, Colourpop one of my new absolute favorite affordable makeup brands, had an end of the summer sale a couple of weeks ago and I was able to stock up on some of the best summer shades for almost dirt cheap! Yay for Sales!
When I caught wind of this sale, I immediately went browsing through the sale offerings a found a lot of gems. I picked up three Lippie Stixs, two Super Shock Eyeshadows, and two Lipsticks.Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks. In total I spent about $34.
#1 Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks
You all know how much I love liquid lipsticks, so when I found that some of their gorgeous liquid lipsticks were on sale, I knew I had to snag some.
Chilly Chili – This was part of their summer collection, but I personally think of it as more of a fall shade because of it’s warm and rich brown tones.
Shimmy- I’ve always been a huge fan of pinks when it comes to lip colors and this one did not disappoint. It’s the perfect pinky nude which makes it great for everyday wear.
#2 Super Shock Eyeshadows
I saw swatches of these eyeshadows on Colourpops’ snapchat and fell in love with these shades. As you can probably tell by the picture, I have been getting a lot of wear out of them because they are so beautiful and highly pigmented.
Krinkle- By far my favorite of the two, this color is a beautiful teal color with a slight glittery/shimmery effect and it doesn’t take much of this shadow when applying. Love this one!
Cop-A-Feel- This shade is much more subtle than the other one but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t look beautiful on. It’s a perfect nude eyeshadow that can be used as a base or highlight….really the options are endless.
#3 Lippie Stix
These little gems are the real MVP’s because their design is so great that each one is very easy to apply without getting too much lipstick on the lips. And would you look at those hues! I MEANNNN…….
Fiesta – This shade is a nice coral color and it’s subtle enough to where it’s not too bright but also pigmented enough to notice the beauty of its hue.
Croquet- This shade is a sort of true pink color with a slight hint of red undertones.
Tickler- This is a VERY pigmented almost magenta pink color and it only takes a tiny bit of color when applying.
I don’t know about you, but Colourpop is quickly becoming one of my favorite affordable makeup brands! Let me know in the comments what you think about them!
