Colour Pop Fall 2016 edit picks + review

Hi all,

So today’s review is all about the products I picked from Colour Pop Fall 2016 edit

For this year’s fall, Colour Pop did 3 edits which has 9 pressed pigments (aka Colour Pop eyeshadows) 10 liquid lipsticks (a mix of satin and matte) a blush, a Lippie stick and lip pencil. I thought for the most part the edit was a bit boring with a few cliché items but I still wanted to review some of them so I picked the following:

  • Pressed Pigments:
    • Paisley- Golden ivory with multi-coloured sparkle in a Glitter Sheer finish
    • Brady- A true dusty rose in a Matte finish
    • Muse- Vibrant coppery rose in Pearlized finish
    • Paradox- A cool toned burgundy red in Satin finish
    • Stereo- Blackened burgundy with pink and violet duo chrome glitter in Metallic finish
  • Liquid Lipsticks:
    • Calypso- A mid tone pinky nude in Ultra Satin finish
    • Mama- A true burnt orange in Ultra Matte finish

Above are descriptions taken from their website, but let’s see if they stay true to that 🙂

Pressed Pigments:

Paisley:

This is one of a kind, honestly! If you are familiar with glitter finish eyeshadows from Colour Pop, this one will surprise you (in a pleasant way) because the sparkles are multi-coloured and it glides on the skin like butter! This is great to apply on top of any matte shade to dress it up. Totally recommend this one!

Brady:

Not as “wow” as Paisley, this matte shade is still beautiful and it’s a true dusty rose shade. It applies beautifully with fingers, but one thing I don’t like about Colour Pop is having to always apply with fingers for maximum opacity, so when you want to throw these down your crease or apply on a small, specific area, a brush won’t do a good job like with other eyeshadow brands… But this colour is so gorgeous and it’s so worth the price.

Muse:

This shade is slightly similar to ABH “Intense Gaze” (from Shadow Couture Palette) It’s super gorgeous and it is truly a coppery rose that would look absolutely stunning on green eyes! Love the colour pay off and totally recommend this babe for anyone who loves rose shades.

Paradox:

Ok, this is bomb! I’ve never seen such pigmentation on this type of colour with any other brand. They say pinks and reds are the hardest to get good pigmentation, but Paradox puts that thought to shame with crazy colour pay-off in just one swipe, no primers! If you could get only one eyeshadow from the Fall edit, pick this one! It’ll put all other reddish burgundy shades down in a blink of an eye.

Stereo:

This colour looks almost like Muse on the picture in the website, but it’s really, really dark in real life. It’s a really beautiful colour, but if you already have Cricket, I don’t think you’ll need this because the difference is barely noticeable once you put on the lid.

Liquid Lipsticks:

Calypso:

I love satin finish for lips, but they don’t last as long as mattes do. Calypso is a beautiful girly shade that can be worn by anyone from fair to medium/tan skin tones. It goes smooth and even on lips but it lasted only about 3-4 hours like a regular satin lipstick. These do smudge and budge a bit. Overall it’s a beautiful colour and beautiful finish, but nothing super exciting to mention…

Mama:

Here’s another gorgeous colour for you to pick in a heartbeat from this Fall edit! This is a beautiful burnt orange (staying true to the description from the site) that just screams fall by all means… This is a very unique colour and stay on forever on your lips (after hot coffee & two meals) so definitely recommend this one to put to your cart. It has a warm undertone, but it did not make my teeth look yellow.

All eyeshadows are priced at: US$ 5.00

All liquid lipsticks are priced at: US$ 6.00

I’m happy with my picks from this Fall edit, except for Stereo, which was very different from what I expected. I love Paisley, Muse, Paradox and Mama, and the reason I didn’t pick the blush “Bardot” is because even though it looked very beautiful and very Fall-ish, I wondered if it would be too warm for my already warm skin. I thought it wouldn’t be super wearable with all the gold sparkle over the true red blush tone… If you’ve bought it, please let me know about it!

Hope this review helps you!

I’ll see you soon!
