Every time a new product launches, I want to treat myself but my wallet has the stony-eyed glare of a disapproving parent while my bank account screams at me. Can I justify this? No. ****’s expensive. Join me in drooling over all the pretty, shiny things (and maybe crying just a little bit).
Not one, but three different collections have launched in the last month or so. While Colourpop is comparatively affordable (Lip products start at $6, eyeshadows and highlighters at $8), you’ll still have to hit $50 to get free global shipping. Grab a friend (or two), and chuck all your things in a shopping cart, ASAP:
Colourpop Cosmetics x My Little Pony
Do I like My Little Pony? I don’t think I did, but for all you wannabe unicorns (and glamourcorns, and whatever) – this is for you. Dating a brony? You’re definitely in luck. Sparkle, shimmer and flutter by with anything from the 14-piece collection – or just pick up the sets. At $135 and $110 respectively, they’re actually pretty bang for your buck.
Colourpop Cosmetics x iluvsarahii
iiluvsarahii, a Mexican YouTube personality, teamed up with the brand to launch two eyeshadow palettes and six lip products. I mean, look at her:
The sultry makeup blogger even shows you which products she used to get the campaign looks. Want it? I want it. I also wish my brows were on fleek like hers.
Colourpop Cosmetics: New Arrivals
If you’re into Colourpop, then you know about their famous Super Shock Highlighters – a cream-powder hybrid highlighter that blends beautifully into the skin. You’d also know about one of their cult favourite shades – Flexitarian. They’ve taken the formula, added pearls and glimmer in order to make their highlighters even more blinding. Pick up Some Like It Hot, Off Tropic and Pier Pressure before they sell out.
Eye palettes more your style? They’ve got two pressed powder palettes – Element of Surprise: a mix of edgy dramatic colours with a girly twist and bold pops of colour, and You Had Me At Hello: mauve toned and very much an everyday palette. Element of Surprise is the first palette with all four of their finishes (matte, metallic, satin and duochrome), so you’re in for a treat. So, not a trick.
Say what you want about Kylie Jenner, but there’s no doubt that her lip line has a cult following. The youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan has announced 11 new shades of her Velvet Liquid Lipstick single line, and they’re not just fall-worthy. Swoon over the names and shades (and tell me if the price justifies it).
