ColourPop: Yes, Yes and Yes

Hello! I recently made my first ColourPop purchase and the second that I tried out the products that I ordered, I knew it was love. I know that I'm a little late to the ColourPop party but hey, I'm just glad that I arrived. 

For those of you who haven't heard of ColourPop, they are a hip, up-and-coming beauty brand targeted towards visually-inspired college students and young creatives. ColourPop has only been around for about two years but they've already managed to make a huge splash in the beauty industry. While they have prices that you'd expect from drugstore beauty products, they're certainly no boring, drugstore makeup brand. They offer a wide array of creative beauty products in fun colors. Their fun products are sold online through their site. As an added bonus, all first-time customers get $5 off their order and if you spend $30, shipping is free! 

ColourPop is especially well known for their matte liquid lipsticks- which have been proven to actually contain the same ingredients that the Kylie Lip Kits have but for a fraction of the cost: ColourPop matte lipsticks cost $6 while the Kylie Lip Kits cost over three times that amount. I decided to see what all the hype was about and ordered one of ColourPop's matte liquid lipsticks to try out for myself as well as one of their eyeshadows.

I've been super into seventies-inspired, peachy makeup recently so I ordered their matte liquid lipstick in "Donut" and their eyeshadow in "Cheeky." The lipstick cost $6 while the eyeshadow cost $5- both great deals. I'm wearing both the eyeshadow and the lipstick in the photos above and am completely in love with them both. Basically I want to wear this makeup look practically all the time. The products are great quality and I love the nostalgic feel of this look. I'm also wearing Glossier's boy brow in blonde and Benefit's lengthening mascara

For this outfit, I wanted to emphasize the peachy color of my makeup so I slipped into a peachy-colored lace dress. To highlight the nostalgic seventies mood of my makeup, I styled the feminine dress with a vintage, mustard-yellow knit shawl and vintage textured yellow purse. I slipped into a pair of seventies platform heels to perfect the look. 

As a side note, I love my ColourPop lipstick and eyeshadow so much that I actually just ordered seven new products from their site. Stay tuned to see how I wear them! Also, if you haven't checked out ColourPop's site or ordered anything from them before, I'd recommend popping over to their site to check out their incredible selection of swoon-worthy products. Next on my list to try? One of their beloved highlighters
