Last month, my friend Dani over at Coffee Break With Dani (Subscribe to her ASAP!) did a video about ColourPop Eyeshadows and pretty much said they were the bees knees. So of course, I had to see what the big deal was and ordered some. (Ok, a lot) and was also sent 6 directly from ColourPop HQ as well. For $5, you can’t go wrong. They have every single color imaginable and also some incredibly unique shades. If you love brights, they have brights or if you’re a neutrals girl (like me) they have a TON!
So what makes these so special? I’m convinced there are magical fairies living in these shadows. They are a pigment / eyeshadow mixture with an incredible amount of pigmentation. These are NO JOKE. I know you’re thinking.. ‘They’re $5.. they can’t be THAT great’. Just hear me out (And I’m pretty sure the swatches will convince you)
They come in a pretty white pot with a clear lid so you can easily see what color you’re grabbing for. But make sure when you’re done, you close that sucker up tight! Don’t let the magical fairies loose!
I have been applying these with both my finger and a flat shader brush. If you want super maximum coverage, I would recommend using your finger and tap the shadow onto the lid. Either way works – You’re still going to get a GREAT look!
