Due to Afterpay, which is amazing, I predict a lot of new Colourpop in my future, and I’m totally okay with it. It is also available at some of my other faves like Free People and Forever 21, which could be a good or bad thing. Basically you get to pay your total in four payments interest free. No this is not sponsored. When I heard of Twinkling Lights and the dawn of Colourpop introducing Afterpay, I was too excited.
Some people were complaining about being bored with Colourpop collabing with the same people all the time, but I honestly don’t care. I love Kathleen Lights and Colourpop, and that’s not going to change because Colourpop collabs with her frequently. Yes, you may have similar products, but I found some gems you most likely don’t have, and honestly, how can you not like Super Shock Shadows and Colourpop lippies?
My standout favorites are the shadow in the shade Vela and the lippie in the shade Little Star.
Vela is an incredibly unique shade and I’m obsessed.
It has a peachy brown base and a beautiful purple-y pink iridescence. It’s described as a “light saddle brown with pink violet duochrome flip” on Colourpop.com.
I’ve never seen or owned any shadow like it. It’s definitely my favorite item in the collection.
The other shadows are gorgeous however. Glisten and Light Up are similar to other shades I own, but of course the formula is my favorite hands down of any brand, so I’m always stoked to have more, and these are good staple everyday shades. Blitzen is unique and gorgeous. It is a pinkish red with pink glitters throughout, perfect for the holiday or a bold red going out look. I love the shade.
My second favorite item in the collection is the lipstick Little Star. It is described as a “rusty warm brown“. I’m a huge fan of brown lipstick. It’s probably because I’m a 90s girl at heart, but I think they’re so cute and flattering and wear them every opportunity I get during fall and winter.
This collection definitely has something for everyone, and both neutral and everyday lips and glam lips are possible with the kit. I got the entire collection and I have used it for both going out and for work.
The most unique lippie is definitely Night Light. It is a “metallic bronze drenched with gold and hot pink glitter” Ultra Glossy Lip. I’m not the biggest metallic lip wearer, but I’m into anything glitter, and I love this for a night when you want to look glam without trying much. Throw this on with some lashes and something in your crease and your good to go.
All in all, as you probably guessed it, I’m a fan. If you’re thinking of getting the collection but aren’t sure, get what you most likely will use and are excited about. Your coin will not be wasted, believe me.
Love you all!! Happy new year!
I’m wishing you loads of love and life!
