Colourpop Haul featuring Aquarius

20160103_131702

This is the first time I’m trying out the highlighter and shadows from Colourpop and OMG. I’m so blown away by the texture and the pigmentation. Where have I been?!

If you’re new to Colourpop, they’re a relatively new brand based in Los Angeles. They are cruelty-free, gluten-free, and vegan (however, there are some products that are not vegan – please refer to their FAQ page for more information).Β Colourpop FAQ

My main reason for this haul was the Lippie Stix in the shade Aquarius. I am an Aquarius, by the way, so I thought it was only fitting for me to purchase it. The collection is a collaboration between YT Beauty person KathleenLights and Colourpop, of course. I don’t watch KathleenLights regularly but I do know that she also came out with a second quad as well as another Lippie Stix (Taurus) with this recent collab.

Among my purchases, I also ordered an older KathleenLights X Colourpop collab item – Lumiere (Lippie Stix) and Cornelious (matte eyeshadow). I also picked up Electric Slide (highlighter) because I heard that was a dupe for Mac’s Oh Darling (whether it is or not, it’s still a pretty shade and I’m tempted to just buy all of Colourpop’s highlighters). Lastly, I picked up Puppy Love which is a collab with No Kill Los Angeles, an adoption center for pet rescues in Los Angeles. All proceeds from Puppy Love go to this shelter. I’m all for saving pets so, I picked it up while I could.

The texture of the shadows are highlighter are AH-MAZING. They feel soft and gel-like. When you dip your finger into the pot, the pattern on the product does go away but I mean… I don’t expect my makeup to stay pretty forever.

Swatches below!

Long story short, I can’t wait to order more and I just got this package. As I’ve said on my Instagram (follow me @fishscalekisses!): The love is so real.
