[Haul] First Colourpop Cosmetics Order


I have been waiting for my order to arrive. This is my first time ordering from Colourpop. You have probably heard of this company because the Youtube community has been raving about this. 

A little about Colourpop
ColourPop was born, raised and made with love in the City of Angels (aka Los Angeles) so we can react quickly to the latest and greatest trends and get them in your fabulous hands stat.
We take the phrase “if you can dream it, you can do it” to a whole new level and specialize in making killer makeup in every shade imaginable at prices everyone can afford. We think that whole barrier between fancy and affordable is absolute nonsense. That’s why all of our products have luxury formulas at prices that won’t break the bank.
PS. We are 100% fur baby friendly, bunny approved, and only test our products on humans – the ones in our HQ to be exact.-
Colourpop is quite young, it just celebrated its 1-year old birthday last month. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY COLOURPOP!  

I find it a little odd that my order did not come in a delivery box but it came in an envelope. Thankfully, everything survived! Inside the package, there's a hand written card from Colourpop and three other descriptive cards about the products I ordered. Okay, here comes the actual haul.

1) Super Shock Cheek in FOX ($8 USD)

This is a mid tone warm coral that has a satin finish. I love this color, it gives me the natural post-work out flush. The texture of the blush is different from any other blush I've ever tried. It's not a powder, it almost feel like it's wet, but it's not. It's a little bit bouncy, but it is really pigmented like a cream blush. If you know what the Maybelline  Dream Bouncy Blush or Benefit Majorette blush feel like, the Coloupop blush is a less bouncy than those. 

It is suggested to apply the product with your fingers. If you want to use a brush, you can use synthetic stipple brush or flat synthetic foundation brush.

2) Super Shock Shadow in Birthday Girl

This is the limited edition eye shadow for Colourpop's 1-year-old birthday. During the birthday celebration, you get this shadow for free with any purchase!! (That's one of the reason I decided to make me order during that time.) The texture of the shadow is similar to the blush and the application is same as the blush, but the formula is even more pigmented. The color is beautiful, gold/brown with sparkles. This is not a color I will use everyday but I will definitely use this during special occasions. 

The rest are lippies. They are twist up lipstick in a pencil. stick form called Lippie Stix. They come in different finishes but surprisingly I only got stain and matte finishes. I tried every color on my lips already. I love how they all glide on easily, creamy and does not drag the lips. All the color I got show up really well. However, I hate the scent, especially when I first applied them. It has a plastic scent but the scent disappears after a while. The color stains the lips but the color do transfer, even after I blot the color after application. In addition, without food and drink the color stays beautifully for a long time. Best part yet, they are $5 a piece!!!

3) Lippie Stix in Fancy
- Neutral mid tone coral with a satin finish

4) Lippie Stix in Clique
- Orangey red with a matte finish. I am obsessed with the color. It really pops! I think orangey red really suits my complexion!

5) Lippie Stix in Tootsi
- Cool-toned grey-ish beige with a matter finish
This color does not look good on me, it's too grey for my complexion, it made me look like I was sick.

6) Lippie Stix in Frida (Collaboration with Coffee Break with Dani)
- Warm mid tone nude pink with a satin finish. It has a little coral, pink and brown, supposedly, the color will look different on everyone depending on your skin tone. 

7) Lippie Stix + Pencil in Lumiere (Collaboration with Kathleen Lights)
- Dusty mauve pink with a matte finish. This color shows up purpley pink on me, I've never tried something like this before. I love it so much! I have not tried the pencil on the lips but the color looks exactly like the lippie stick.

Overall I am really happy with my order. Although it took a while for me to receive my order, I'm glad none of the products are broken.  I love everything besides Tootsi. I would definitely order from them again, I would love to try more lip products, blushes and more neutral, everyday eye shadows. I will try all of the products a little more and update you my thoughts!

What's In MyTravel Makeup Bag?

Summer is finally here! Hooray! Which means it is time for travelling and vacations!

I received this train case as a gift and I have been using this every time I am on vacation. It fits nicely into my luggage and it fits all my essentials!

This is what it looks like when I put everything in there. I love that there are two removable compartments. This allow me to utilize it in so many ways. For example, if I want to carry a small makeup bag in my purse, I can use one of these compartments. Or if I have something a bit bigger to fit in the train case, I can remove one compartment. Another great thing about the compartments is that they are made out of clear plastic material, this way it is easy to clean up and I can see what is in the bag clearly. The lid of the train case is designed to carry brushes, how convenient! I just love how I can be really organized with this!

I really like having things organized, so I actually have a system of what goes into each compartment. (I guess this is why I love this makeup train case so much.) Everything is divided into 3 categories, with the obvious brush section on the lid. Then I have one just for face products. The other one is everything else. So let's talk about them section by section.

Before I start, I just want to say that many of these products are my holy grail and I have talked about them in previous posts. Please refer to other posts if you want a review on a particular product or just ask me in the comments section below.

Face Section

1) Benefit Porefessional
2) MUFE Nourishing Primer
3) Maybelline CC Cream
4) Maybelline Cover Stick
5) Rimmel Match Perfect

6) Model Co. Blush in Cosmopolitan: I got this in my Feb 2015 Glam Bag. Cosmopolitan is a ballerina pink color,. It is super pigmented, so I like to use a stipple brush to slowly build the color up. 

7) E.L.F Complexion Powder

8) Bare Minerals Powder Brush: This brush is small but it is very dense, it allows a flawless application. I really like to travel with it to save room.

ETC Section

This compartment consists of eyes related products, lip products, etc.

1)Benefit Naked Basics : MUST HAVE! It's just a perfect every day palette

2) Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye liner

3)Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

4)Eyelash curler: This one is by Emite Make Up, and it was from my February Glam bag as well. I really like this curler. It does not pinch my eye lids and it gives a nice curl easily.

5)Kiehl's Eucalyptus Lip Relief: It is a very hydrating lip balm, since it is meant to be used on a plane. It gives a minty and tingly feeling when you apply them. The feeling and scent lasts pretty long, and I really like it. 

6)Beauty Blender

7)Urban Decay Lipstick: This is a mini size lipstick I got from a Sephora Favorite pack. This is in the shade Naked. It is my perfect pinky nude color that looks very natural on the skin. I can wear this color with any look so I love to bring it around. The formula itself is long lasting and not drying at all!

On a side note, I really think this is a must have for everyday and especially for business formal settings or business trip. 

8)Dior Lip Glow: This is another simple every day color that goes with every look.

9)Boscia Blotting Paper: Boscia carries many different line/ scent of blotting paper. The one I have in green tea. The paper itself actually have a slight green tea scent. I like how it blots away excess oil but not drying out my skin nor wipe away my makeup. 

10)Travel/ Sample Size Fragrance: Every time I pack for my trip I will bring out my big stash of sample/ traveling perfume. Since I have so many perfume samples, I travel with a different one almost every time. This is a good time for me to really try out a perfume and it is really easy to travel with. Lately, I have been loving the Dior J'adore perfume, it has a floral scent. I think it is very summer appropriate.


1)E.L.F. Stipple Brush
2) My Makeup Brush Set Flat top foundation
3) Angled Eye Liner Brush
4) Angled Brow Brush
5) E.L.F Spooly Brush
6) Crown Double Ended Eye Brush
7) Luxie Beauty Fluffy Blending Brush

I did not show my face cream, toners, makeup remover, etc. because I keep them with my toiletries. Also, a lot of the skincare products I bring are from my everyday skin care routine. I will either transfer them in a smaller container or find a travel/ sample size if I can find it. If you have not already, you can check out My Everyday Skincare Routine.

I hope this is somewhat helpful for people that are traveling! If you are traveling, leave a comment/ or tweet me where you are going and share with me your essentials! If you are not traveling, you can also share with me where you want to travel to and what will you be bringing if you go on a trip!
