If you’d told me before I started my blog I’d be ordering from Colourpop, I would’ve said your were out of your mind.
Way back in September (almost a year ago!) I was beginning to get into makeup. I heard about Colourpop for the first time when they were in the news for their… um poorly named sculpting sticks. The line was heavily criticized for it’s lack of diverse colors and their offensive names for the darker colors such as Typo, Dume, and Yikes. You can read more about it here.
I vowed to never order from them, but as time went on I became interested in their products. Every time an influencer mentioned Colourpop, I cringed slightly. I began to feel like I was hating them for a small mistake, something they’d apologized for. So now, a year later I placed an order from them right after the wildly successful launch of their concealers, which have a line of 15 shades.
15 shades isn’t a lot, but it’s progress.
I was super excited and wanted to try a few things without getting anything I didn’t need. So, I sadly passed on the pressed bronzer and highlight and the super shock cheek products.
I also picked up a few things from Lush, one a well loved repurchase and one something new to try. Keep reading to see what I got!
