Colourpop : All about Eyes ~ Super Shock Eyeshadow

Hello Beauties,

I am completely obsessed with the Colourpop super shock eyeshadows. I have a few that I have collected over the last couple of months. But we will be here a long time if I review each and every one of them. I recently got “Where the Light Is” by Kathleenlights. This has been on my wish list for a very long time and I am pleased to say I have it now.

I am quite surprised by the texture of the eyeshadows is between a cream, powder and mouse and it is a bouncy texture when you touch it. When applied it feels creamy but it dries down to a powder textured.

Where the light is pallette

At first I was not sure but how to use it but once I started using it I once again seem to reach for these every morning.  The pigmentation is awesome and the lasting power is amazing. The colour do not move all day. I have tested with and without primer and I have the same result. It lasts up to 12 hours. I have extremely oily eyelids and the staying power of these eyeshadows are incredible.

There are a large variety of finishes: matte, satin, metallic, iridescent, glitter, neon….. and I gravitate towards the matte, satin, pearlized and metallic range….. although they say I should not be wearing metallic eyeshadows at my age (I say whatever!) I love the little bit of shimmer to catch the light in the middle of my eyelid.

 

“Where the Light Is” Kathleenlights Pallette:

The quad has four shades and sells for $20, the colours can also be bought individually at $5 each. The colours in the palette are amazingly addictive; Kathleenlights, Blaze, Cornelious and Glow;

Open eyeshadows

 

Kathleenlights – This is a bright golden copper in a pearlized finish. It has a warm gold undertone and I love to use the shimmer in the middle of my eyelids.

Blaze – This has to be my absolute favourite of all the shade. It’s a coco bronze sprinkled with multi-dimensional glitter in a metallic finish, this colour is amazing. It’s very luminous and has different shades depending on the angle you look at the colour, bronze/khaki dark gold metallic with glitter. I love this colour so much that I use the shade alone on my eyelids as a single shadow look.

Cornelious – a mid-tone caramel matte finish, this shade is perfect to use as the transition shade. It definitely helps me define my crease as I tend toward hooded eyes.

Glow – a light creamy vanilla matte finish, it’s a perfect colour to use all over the lid or highlight the brow bone and can also be use to give that pop of colour in the inner corners.

Application:

There are directions on the website and the brand recommends to apply with your fingertips for best coverage. I have to agree however I only like to use my fingertips when I want to intensify the colour in the middle of my eyelids.

I normally use a synthetic brush to apply the eyeshadows and then I use a synthetic fluffy brush to blend the colours.

 

Packaging:

The packaging is a round white plastic jar which a little bulky but I do not mind. One of the most important things is to always close the lid tightly so that the eyeshadow do not dry out!

 

Once again just a reminder Colourpop do not ship to South Africa but you have two option available:

  • Postbox Couriers if you would like to read how you can click on the link to with Elizabeth H where Lizna has a full blog post.

or

  • Aramex Gold Shopper – I am over the moon as I just won a Aramex Gold Shopper card to the value of $45 and if your would like to read about how go about using them you can click on the link to Pretty Messy Melon where Melissa has a full blog post.

Payment on the Colourpop website is in US Dollars and you need to take the following into consideration

  • Dollar/Rand Exchange rate
  • Courier Cost
  • And Import taxes if your parcel is more than R500

But if the two above option are not appealing to you, you can also order your shadow from HeyPretty and I have to say Laurynne delivers awesome service, her courier fee across South Africa is also very affordable.

Till next time beauties!
