Usually when a product or brand this hyped, I feel sick. For example, NARS as an entirety... 'nuff said. However, the more and more I obsessively watched hauls from Colour Pop Cosmetics, the more I was convinced that I needed to go out and buy every single thing. The fact that I couldn't find any negative reviews made the temptation all the more real.
I mean, they're indie, CF, and $5... like, it would be a sin not to take advantage, right? (Let me believe my reasoning is legit, okay?)
The texture is wacky, like a wet powder but not a cream. They're best when you apply it with a finger, which is difficult with some shades but whatevs; I'll live. Also, the whole 'wet powder' thing sounds like a fancy way of saying 'crease city', but I swear that this doesn't crease, fade, or have any significant fallout. It's really bizarre, but I love it!
Bae... despite my disdain towards the term, I really enjoy this shade. It's a burgundy with a blue/green shift and honey... it's. bae.
As you can see, the blue shimmer isn't as strong as I would like :/
So Quiche-- can we take a minute to comment on all of the confused youtubers that don't know how to pronounce the word quiche?? LORD.
Anyway, it's like a sage green with pink shimmer. Yeah. I know, amazing
Hammered (of, fucking, course) How could I resist a glittery forest green shade? Answer: I can't, I simply can't. And with all of the gold, silver and red glitter... It was impossible for me not to put this in my cart...impossible
Cricket is a gorgeous burgundy brown with gold glitter... this one is great, but has a weaker color base. Out of the bunch, it was the least impressive, but that isn't saying much because it was still pretty damn impressive.
'I <3 This' is a glittery champagne. Nothing more, nothing less.
Meow is one of their tie-dye shades and it unfortunately looks weird after you've used it for a while :/ Though, the color is a gorgeous purple toned pewter shade that is definitely obsession worthy.
Do I really need to say anything more??
