Finally Trying Colourpop.

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 the 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 pinker 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 it’s still a lovely colour, it’s 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 worn by 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.

Have you tried Colourpop yet, what products would you recommend?
