My Colourpop is finally here! I'm so excited about it!!! When I opened the parcel I saw the different packaging and I JUST CAN'T WAIT TO OPEN THEMMMMMM.
As my ultra blotted lips are running low, I wanted to order them again. I was also in luck as the website was having a buy 2 get 1 free liquid lipstick promo! I was planning to get Zuma & Doozy again and then get a new colour for the free one to try something new. But Zuma was unfortunately sold out): So I got a satin & metallic and my Doozy instead.
I got 5 items this time:
Inside the parcel there is also:
After trying out and knowing how good the super shocker eyeshadows are, I took the chance to get one more for myself. The shade I got was a neutral rosy colour, which is sort of the same shade grouping as the plums but more subtle. I really like the way it looks on the website so I got it. Looking at it IRL, I'm glad that the shade is what it looks on the website, but I was a bit disappointed that I chose a shade that is very similar to my existing one - Elixir. Even though they look different when placed side by side, I don't think anyone will be able to tell I am using a different shade haha But oh well. It's still a nice colour for sure, I'll find ways to wear it nicely!
OMG I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS. And I realised I got 4 lipsticks hahahahaha I am just really excited to see the metallic lip because I have never tried one before, and if the formula is good, I am add it to my go to list also! Additionally, I got a satin colour since Frick & Frack is really good too. And this shade is also very pretty! It's like a pinker version of Frick & Frack. It's funny how I am more into natural tones now, when I was all about dark lips and bold colours XD
The metallic liquid lip has a rather dense formula, and it made me feel like as a result there is actually very little product in the bottle. When I unscrew the bottle and pull out the applicator, I can see the level of the product plummet quite significantly. And it goes back to the top when I push the applicator back. Colour wise it is amazing! It's very pigmented and smooth. The shine is quite hypnotising and I'm thinking when will be a good time to wear this XD It's a really awesome shade - almost like a dark copper tone. Quite futuristic and seductive.. Kinda? hahaha I like it though.
This shade is like a pink muted version of Doozy! It's also a very natural colour. Something like a dusty rose pink. Very suitable for everyday wear and also for a cute look. The formula is the same as Frick & Frack so there's nothing new. It's pigmented, not kiss proof but very moisturising. Me like!
Drip is a slightly darker shade than Doozy & Zuma. They are very close to each other. I'm quite glad for this because I wanted to get a blotted lip just to test the formula. So I thought it'll be quite safe to get a similar shade so I don't have to worry about it not fitting me. The product itself is kinda small. I found it a little hard to hold in my hand as a result. One thing I do like is the double lock mechanism it has, which secures the cap well to the base. But I have to be very careful opening now as it's very tight. I worry that if I use too much force I might break something XD My initial impression when I applied for a swatch was that it's really hard to get product on the skin. It has a drag and you need to use a bit of force to apply it onto the skin. It's not creamy or soft, and it's buildable. I find it a little bit drying on the lips, but it's not too bad. I would say I prefer the ultra blotted lip just because 1) Easier application 2) Kiss proof 3) Not as drying. It's still pretty nice to use but I won't get again if I have a choice.
All in all I'm really happy with my purchase <3 I actually felt kinda greedy and wanted to buy some more on the website. NOT GOING TOO CAUSE ONLY GET WHAT U NEED. Still bummed about Zuma being sold out ): Maybe in my next purchase in the near future. :p Hopefully I'll have time to do a look with my newbies soon too. Work has been so so so crazy. It's also not helping when you work for people who are not great. Sigh. SOON THOUGH. SOON I WILL GET OUT OF THERE FOR GOOD.
