If you've been watching Youtube beauty videos lately, then you've no doubt heard of a new brand out there called Colour Pop. The brand's taken the bloggosphere/vloggosphere by strom -- and with good reason. The quality and pricing of their products are jaw dropping. Their Super Shock eyeshadows and Lippie Stix have beauty bloggers/vloggers weak at the knees, which means I had to go ahead and order some of their products to check them out for myself.
Right now, the brand makes eyeshadows and lipsticks -- all priced at $5 (!!!). And soon they'll be releasing a blush line. They haven't announced the price of the blushes, but they have said they won't be priced at $5 as they are a larger product. Regardless, I'm already salivating at the possibility.
I went ahead and ordered seven products (five shadows and two lipsticks). If you're doing the math, that's a whopping $35 (steal!). And since I signed up for their newsletter, I got a $5 off coupon, which brought my total down to $30.
I'm pretty sure I've spent more than that on fewer products at the drugstore. Just sayin'.
Anyway, here's a picture of the five eyeshadows I purchased.
In the meantime, here are some color descriptions and swatches for you:
- So Quiche: Olive with gold, pink, and violet duo chrome shimmer (metallic finish)
- Amaze: rose gold (metallic finish)
- 3: bronze with silver and multicolored glitter (metallic finish)
- Desert: warm saddle brown with taupe (satin finish)
- Hanky Panky: soft cool-tone taupe (matte finish)
I also purchased two of their Lippie Stix:
- BFF is a peachy nude with a glossy finish
- Frida is a warm mid-tone pink nude with a satin finish

Even though Hanky Panky is described as a cool toned taupe, it reminded me of MAC Soft Brown and Stila Eden shadows. In the pot, they all look very close. But on closer inspection, it's not an exact dupe -- just in the same color family.
Soft Brown is definitely darker and warmer. Eden is rosier. Check out the side-by-side swatch below.
Is it just me? They're kind of similar, right?
