I finally have a spare moment to write a quick post about my most recent order from ColourPop! My midterm is tomorrow already for my first summer course, and last night at work I had floorset, so things have been a bit crazy for me lately! Nonetheless, I wanted to show you what I bought and swatch my items for you!
As you probably know, ColourPop turned 2 years old in May, so to celebrate, every order made on Memorial Day Weekend received a FREE limited edition eyeshadow in limited edition packaging. The color was called, “Birthday Boy“, and was a taupey brown/gold color loaded with purple glitter. It was also in purple packaging which I adore! I’ve been waiting for Birthday Boy to drop since the beginning of April, so of course, I decided to buy a lippie so I could get my hands on the freebie shadow! As I was waiting for C to pick me up from the airport last weekend, I decided to take a break from doing my homework and make a quick ColourPop purchase so I could finally own Birthday Boy!
I purchased a MatteX lippie stix in the shade “Boa“. It’s a bright lilac color and I love it! I wasn’t sure how the MatteX formula would differ from ColourPop’s traditional Matte lippie stix, but I was very surprised and impressed with the results and longevity of the color!
I wore Boa to work for 4.5 hours and I applied it before I left my house! It was still on my lips when I arrived home hours later, and I didn’t reapply it once! It didn’t leave my lips feeling dry either like some liquid matte lipsticks or other matte lipsticks I’ve tried. This formula is really great if you want your makeup to stay in place
Here are swatches of my two products!
I really enjoy using Birthday Boy too! It’s a beautiful shade, and it actually blends well with some of the eyeshadows I’ve made myself! I use this shadow to make a very neutral eye, and it is perfect to wear the neutral eye with Boa since the lip color is so bold (for me anyway!).
Since Birthday Boy was free and my lippie was $5, with shipping my total came to $9.99. Not bad for a quick purchase! I was so happy I had a few dollars to spare so I could make an order! Thank you ColourPop for sharing your birthday with all of your cult followers and makeup junkies!
Thank you for reading JLoF readers, and also be on the lookout for my Ipsy Early Access post – I just found out I will be receiving some ColourPop in my Ipsy Glambag this month!! *Cue happy dance!*
