Well, well, well…
Thanks to Luzanne’s genius we managed to do a little haul from Colourpop Cosmetics (see their site here). We made use of Aramex Global Shopper, a freight forwarding company that allows you to have products shipped from loads of websites that wouldn’t otherwise ship internationally – there are detailed instructions on how that works + a discount code over here.
The Colourpop products have really good staying power, and they’re super affordable – eyeshadows start at $5 each. The textures are very unique – it’s a creamy gel-like consistency that quickly sets as a powder finish. Genius, I tell you.
As promised in the video, here is some feedback:
Those two eyeshadow shades really are very glittery – so much so that I had to go wash them off one one occasion as they wouldn’t have been suitable for a daytime meeting. It’s not a criticism of the product, I just didn’t choose my shades very well.
The eyeshadows as well as the cheek products apply equally well with brushes and fingertips. I would advise dabbing over the cheek products with a RT Miracle Sponge or Beauty Blender to smooth things out though. If I blend it too much – whether with a stipple of fluffy brush – I start shifting around my foundation.
The Lippie Stix wear for a good couple of hours, and I’m especially impressed with the matte shade Lumiere.
