The Pampadour community has been obsessed with ColourPop since its inception a little over a year ago. Fun colors, stellar quality for an amazing price…what’s not to love? We are so excited to swatch some shadows, lippies and a blush from their unbelievable summer collection. Keep reading to check out our thoughts on their latest products!
L-R: Coconut, Plunge, Nillionaire
Coconut, Jelly Fish
Nillionaire: I have yet to try a ColourPop product I didn’t like, but I have to say their Metallic shadows really stand out in my opinion. I have been using the rose gold Amaze to top off almost every eye look I’ve done in the past year – I put it on the middle of my lid to add some extra dimension. Nillionaire, a warm bronze packed with gold and multi-colored glitter, could give it a run for its money – gorgeous. PAMP FAVE!
Plunge: I wish the camera captured Plunge better – you can’t see how beautiful this light warm beige truly is. The light hits it in the most stunning way. The shadow comes in a Pearlized finish, which is a essentially a glow minus the shimmer. It’s perfect to use on your brow bone or as an inner corner highlight.
Coconut: All I can say is ‘WOW!’ If you’re a blue eyeshadow lover, you need to add this peacock teal to your shopping cart right now. This bright color comes in a Pearlized finish. Pair it with ColourPop’s Rex for a sultry smoky eye, across your lower lash line for a fun summer look, all over your lid…the possibilities are endless. PAMP FAVE!
Jelly Fish: This blush is not for the faint of heart. The unique bright red coral is super bright, and a little goes a long way. It’s uber-pigmented, so start small and build it up to your desired look. That being said, it’s a strikingly pretty summer blush. Anyone can pull it off – if you dab a little on the apples of your cheeks and blend it out, it will give you the perfect glow.
Top to Bottom: Polliwog, Topanga, Fiesta
Polliwog: I usually tend to stay away from true nudes – I prefer pinky or peachy variations – so you can imagine my shock when I fell in love with Polliwog! A cool-toned nude beige in a glossy Cream finish, this light nude would pair beautifully with a classic smoky eye.
Topanga: This is the kind of color I reach for during the summer. Topanga is a mid-tone dusty coral in a Satin finish. It’s a shade you can wear on a no-makeup day to add a little spice to your look, or paired with a sparkly eye and wing on a glam night out. By the way, yes, ’90s kids, the color is named after Boy Meets World’s beloved leading lady. This is how the witty ColourPop team describes the shade on their site: “You’ll love this like Corey loves Topanga.” PAMP FAVE!
Fiesta: Fiesta is a make-no-apologies, bold and beautiful bright pink, and I love it! This summery peachy-pink comes in a Cream finish, and would look absolutely incredible with a bronzy glow. It’s definitely a vacation color.
Side note: If you noticed in the pictures above, the lippie colors look different on my lip and arm swatches. Especially for the Cream lippies, I found that they swatched darker on my arm. Either way, I love them all!
