I first heard of Colourpop through CoffeebreakwithDani and KathleenLights. I saw videos of them swatching their eyeshadows that only cost 5 USD each. Like come on? Really that cheap?! But then I have a lot of eyeshadow palettes so I forgot all about it until I’ve seen videos of them doing swatches of the “lippie stix” which is CP’s version of a lipstick. Again, my weakness is lipsticks so I was curious and bought a few of their eyeshadows and lippie stix from Prettymoody’s IG account. Got the eyeshadow and lippie stix for 350 pesos each. As you can see in the photo, one of the eyeshadows was broken when I got it. Colourpop’s formulation is known to be a very soft, gel-like powder. It feels like cream when you touch it and sets as powder on the lids. So I just had to press down the crumbs and cracks and they’re sort of back to the original shape.
The lippie stix costs 5USD each too. If you think about it, it’s not really that cheap because it only has 1g of product. MAC has 3.4g. However, if you’re the type who has a lot of lipsticks in your rotation, then you’re good. You won’t be able to finish a tube anyway.
