Eva Gutowski + ColourPop Collab Review!

IMG_0800

I have a ColourPop haul and review to share.  I just realized that the lip trio’s box is upside down.  Oopsies!  I have other photos that I will add below that hopefully won’t be as crazy!

I placed a ColourPop order a few weeks ago for items from the Eva Gutowski collaboration, plus a No Filter Concealer.  The were selling a bundle with the cheek duo, lip trio and one of the eye shadow quads for $35. I think I had a 20% off coupon and paid about $32 for everything including the concealer (+free shipping).

There, that’s a better photo!  This is the She’s a Beach Babe Lip Bundle.  It includes one Ulta Glossy Lip in Just Surfed (warm beige gloss drenched in silver and pink glitter) and two Ultra Blotted lips — Love Bite (soft pinky nude) and Party Wave (soft terracotta).

I love all of these colors.  I like lighter lip colors, and these are perfect for me.  This is the first time I’ve tried their Ulta Blotted formula.  I like it.  I’m not much of a matte lip girl, but the colors are really fresh, and the glossy lip is a good topcoat that helps with moisture.

This pretty palette is the Mermaid Glow Pressed Powder Face Duo.  I have lots of ColourPop eye shadow palettes, which have cardboard packaging without mirrors, so I was excited to see this is plastic and has a mirror!  It’s so cute and is great to pop in my purse.  I love having a mirror for on the go.

I think these shades may be better suited for a little deeper skin tones than mine (light).  but I do really like them.  The blush is a matte peach, and the highlighter is a soft golden champagne. So pretty! I think it will look amazing when I get my faux tan on this summee. (I have swatches of everything below).

IMG_0806IMG_0807There were two choices of eye shadows (two different bundles).  I chose the one with the cool toned palette Vacation Mode Pressed Powder Shadow Palette.  There is also a warm toned palette called It’s All Wild. That has orange and brown mattes and a copper gold metallic.  I have tons of orange and brown ColourPop shadows and I wanted to try a cooler toned palette.  And these colors are so pretty.  They are creamy powders that blend really well!

On to the swatches:IMG_0808

On the left is the concealer.  I will review that below.  Then the lip colors, blush and highlighter and eye quad colors.  Here’s close ups:

This bundle is not available any more, but you can purchase that products separately.

Last but not least, I did finally purchase the ColourPop No Filter Concealer.  The claim on this is, “Our lightweight, creamy concealer was formulated with soft blurring pigments to give you a creaseproof, matte finish. No filter needed.”

They have added a lot and renamed most of their concealers.  When I ordered it, it was called Fair Neutral 10, when I received it, it was called Light 12.  The shade is pretty good.  I might need one shade lighter.

I’ve used this a few times and I like it okay.  It does have a matte finish and it covers well.  I think I need to use it more, though, because it hasn’t left much of an impression on me. I’m not a fan of the applicator.  It’s kind of flat and scratchy.  I don’t know…meh.

I do love ColourPop as a brand.  Their products are mostly gorgeous and so affordable for the quality.

Have you tried any of these products?  What do you think?  And, what’s your current fave ColourPop product?
