If you haven’t heard of Colourpop have you been living under a rock? It seems like over the past few years this brand have made a grand enterance on the budget beauty scene. But of course only in the USA. Us Brits have had to wait for Colourpop to implement international shipping so we can get our hands on these lovely lippies. Colourpop are renowned for their matte lipsticks are are now starting to brand out into other kinds of lipsticks and eye makeup too.
Recently Colourpop had a free international shipping day combined with a 3 for $12 on all lipsticks. So I took the opportunity and ran with it. I nailed my choices down to 3 lipsticks and an eyeliner for good measure. I knew that to pay no import duty the value of my package must not exceed £15. In total I paid $18 which converts to £14.01. When it arrived I was greeted with a card telling me there was a fee to pay. It turns out that instead of valuing each lipstick at $4 they used the usual value of $6 so I was required to pay import duty. It still worked out much cheaper than buying from a UK stockist where each lipstick can be £10!
I am completely happy with all of my products so the price I paid was
completely worth it. The shades I bought are flitter which is a pink metallic, speed dial which is a dark nude and echo park which is also very similar.
Flitter is probably my favourite and is marketed as an ‘Ultra Metallic’ it goes well with a pink eye look. Speed dial is more of a terracotta peach colour and is ultra matte. I find that this one stays on my lips the longest and isn’t too drying. Echo park is a cool toned pink/peach colour and is a satin lip.
As for the eyeliner, I went for black and I am very impressed with the consistency of the product. I just need to nail down my precision!
