NEW from ColourPop: Fall in Love, Fall 2014 Collection






The up and coming makeup brand ColourPop has launched their new fall collection of individual eyeshadows TODAY. If you have never heard of them before, no worries, I didn't until I started to see reviews pop up all over YouTube. 



They're an American cosmetic brand that is cruelty free with all products made in California, U.S. Other then that, I don't know much else about them. They seem to only sell eyeshadows, with the majority in individual form. They do have a couple of quads, but that's as far as they go. As for the eyeshadows...like they say on their website - there is about a zillion to choose from.

Their eyeshadows come in various finishes - Metallic, Pearlized, Pressed Pigments, Satin, Tie Dye, and Ultra-Mettalic. They don't seem to carry any mattes so, if your solely into a matte eye look, this brand ant' for you. While I haven't tried any of these (yet), I'm thinking their satin finishes would work in a pinch for those who prefer a matte look, or a matte crease/blend colour. 

The PR girl in me finds it very interesting that an American company would spell their name with the Canadian/UK spelling of COLOUR. American's spell it COLOR. Weird? Just me? Come on! There has to be other spelling geeks reading my blog. Leave a comment down below if you're with me on this.

And while we are on the topic of writing, I have to give mad props to the person who is writing the descriptions of ColourPop's eyeshadows. Whoever they are, they sure know how to have fun with a job that comes with its fair share of challenges. I have included their descriptions down below for you all to enjoy.

You can purchase these eyeshadows on ColourPop's website only. 

All their individual eyeshadows are only $5 with $4.99 flat shipping rate in the United States. But if you order over $30 worth of products, your shipping is free. BUT, if your in Canada, the eyeshadows are still $5, but the flat shipping rate is $14.99. Basically, do not buy only one eyeshadow unless you want to spend $20+ on it. You definitely get the best deal when you buy in bulk. 

Let's get into the nitty gritty!

Fall in Love, Fall collection


Application tips:
For maximum coverage: Use fingertip and tap shadow onto eye lid. A flat, fine tip synthetic brush will work fabulously as well and is actually better for a more detailed application close to the lash line. However, your fingertips make for the most intense application.

To blend: 
Use a fluffy brush that has good movement, dip tip of the brush into the shadow and blend with a “wind shield wiper” movement throughout the crease of the eye. This will make your shadow softer and more diffused (like a total pro).

When finished: 
Close that sucker up tight! Don’t leave the jar opened for long periods of time, you may lose some of the magic that makes the Super Shock Shadow so amazzzing.
