If you're like me you would have been over the moon when Colourpop was finally available for delivery to the UK. So a little while ago myself, Chloe, Helen and Amy all took advantage of deal for free UK shipping and shared a delivery, this helped split the cost of customs which was about £20. After many an hour scouring the inter-web looking at swatches I finally decided on three shades of their liquid lipsticks to try, Creeper, Tulle and Avenue.
Firstly the one thing I noticed was the colours in the tubes looked different to what I was expecting. Then when I swatched them they looked different again. Take creeper for example, looking at swatches online it looked like a very orange toned red, similar to lady danger by MAC. But in reality its a much more 'classic red' shade - more like Ruby Woo. Tulle online looked a lot more pink toned than it is, I was hoping to use this as a general everyday shade. However I think its a little too dark and not as pink toned as I was hoping. Don't get me wrong its still a lovely colour, its just not what I was expecting. Out of the three colours I think Avenue is the one that was most similar to what I was expecting, if anything it wasn't as dark as I was expecting it to be. But a perfect dark red wine shade lipstick.
I thought I'd best include some images of the lipsticks on me, as I found the images of the shades online a little different. On the left we have Creeper and Avenue on the right. I don't have any photo's of me in Tulle as I do feel it is a little dark for me, I still keep trying but I just can't seem to get it to work.
