Colour Pop Review

Colour Pop Review, Swatches, Video

Today I’m happy to bring you my Colour Pop review. Colour Pop is a new cruelty free company based in California. The formula feels wet to me, but it’s a sort of pressed pigment.

Colour Pop is proudly cruelty free.

Colour Pop Ibiza

Ibiza

Colour Pop Dare

Dare

All colors swatched on primer, except 3, I Heart This and Girly.

Colour Pop On the Rocks Swatch
On the Rocks
Vibrant true bronze with gold and violet glitter.

To me this looks like an aged bronze with hints of gold. The violet is easier to see in this swatch than it is when the color is worn.

Colour Pop Amaze Swatch

Amaze
Metallic rose gold with multi-colored multi-dimensional glitter. 

This is a great rose gold shade.

Colour Pop Mermaid's Kiss Swatch

Mermaid’s Kiss
This bright neon yellow green with pearlized finish totally reminds us of that night we were trippin’ on the beach making out with mermaids…wait…what?

I love this bright yellow-toned green.

Colour Pop Ibiza Swatch

Ibiza
Bright turquoise with a silver and gold duo chrome finish.

This is a bright turquoise with silver glitter.

Colour Pop Rex Swatch

Rex
Black drenched with multiple shades of blue glitter

This has a black base with turquoise and royal blue shimmer.

Colour Pop Dare Swatch


Dare
Shockingly 
bright neon purple with hot pink and violet glitter.

I love this purple! It’s a bright pink-toned purple with lots of shimmer.

Colour Pop 3 Swatch
3

Cool toned starlit bronze with a flash of silvery and multi-coloured glitter

This shade reads more as a brown than a bronze to me.

Colour Pop I Heart This Swatch


I Heart This
Cool toned silvery taupe with multi-coloured glitter

This color has such high shine. It really brightens the eyes when worn on the lid.

Colour Pop Girly Swatch


Girly
Creamy vanilla with a flash of pink and gold duo chrome finish

I love this color, it reminds me of an old L’Oreal Hip Pigment that I owned. The pink and gold iridescence is very strong.

Colour Pop 3, Girly, I Heart This Swatches

3, Girly, I Heart This (these 3 shades were applied on bare skin)

Colour Pop On the Rocks - Amaze - Mermaid's Kiss - Ibiza - Rex - Dare Swatches

Dare is on the center of my lid, Girly was used to highlight. See the tutorial.

The packaging for these shadows is white with a twist top. You’re supposed to cap these tightly when they’re not in use. Like a creme shadow, I would recommend storing these upside down.

Each Colour Pop eyeshadow is $5 and .07 oz of product. A typical Urban Decay eyeshadow is $18 and .05 oz of product, so the Colour Pop eyeshadows are a great deal for the price.

Colour Pop recommends applying with a finger tip and tapping it onto the skin. You can also use a synthetic flat brush. If you use a normal blending brush the color will diffuse softly. The best way, in my experience, is to build the color up with your finger tip. When I applied it with a brush, I had a little bit of fallout. When applied with my finger tips, I had no fallout.
These colors are super sparkly and have great color payoff. The formula is also extremely long wearing! It doesn’t stain, but man, does it not want to come off.

Overall, I really like this formula, despite having to apply it with my finger tip.

What do you think of Colour Pop? Do you like formulas like this?

Pros

  • Cruelty free
  • Great value for the price
  • Great, long-wearing formula
  • Large shade range

Cons

  • Some fallout if you use a brush

  • From our partners

      I really am digging Rex!!!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        It’s a beautiful shade!

    • kellly

      I’m loving those taupes and golds. And the price is right! I’m going to their site right now to order some! Thanks for the review! :D

      • kellly

        I ordered I Heart This and Amaze. I’m loving natural skin-toned shiny shades for my eyes lately and I love the shine of these. I’m anxious to get them!

        • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

          Yay I can’t wait to hear what you think of them!

    • BeautyJudy

      WOW – Ibiza and Dare, drool! This line looks great!!!!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        They are definitely pigmented, sparkly and long wearing

    • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

      The shades are beautiful! Phyrra, does storing them and cream shadows upside down prevent cracking or do you recommend that for another reason?

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        I just feel it helps prevent the shades from drying out. I do that with paint pots, gel liners, etc

        • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

          That makes sense. I do find that some of my cream shadows dry out or crack. I’ll try the upside down trick!

    • http://www.blushingnoir.com/ Brooke @ Blushing Noir

      I love your eye look!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        You know I love my purples :)

    • Aleya Bamdad

      Beautiful colors! Love your look- as always.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Thank you so much Aleya :)

    • http://www.beautybymissl.com/ beautybymissl

      Very pretty shades!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        And they have like 40 or 50 different colors

    • http://www.slashedbeauty.com/ Miranda Mendoza

      I’m really impressed with the pigmentation and the color selection, as well as the price! I’m going to explore this brand more.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        At $5 a pop (pun intended) they’re a perfect fit for your blog :)

    • http://www.geniabeme.com/ Eugenia

      The green, purples, and pink… I NEED! So pretty!

    • http://www.cosmetically-challenged.com Melody Robinson Wright

      Never seen these before. They’re super nice.

    • http://www.painted-ladies.com/ Sheila Arkee

      The blue and purple are beautiful. I’m not sure how I feel about having to use your finger, but at $5 the price is right.

    • Ange

      They’re all SO pretty!

    • kissmysparkle

      Great swatches! I’ve been following Colour Pop on IG for a while and they’re high on my wish list. I really want to pick up some of their eyeshadows when I have more fundage.

    • http://www.mynewestaddiction.com/ Laura

      it is crazy how pretty these are

    • Pink Sith

      You really need a warning on your blog that pretty much everything you review makes it impossible to resist. Also, the price is full of awesome.

    • Norah Salazar

      I like that for a pigment there is no fallout!

    • Sarsie

      I was intrigued until I couldn’t locate any ingredient info on their site. That alone generally stops me from buying from companies. But the colors are beautiful!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        I just put up an ingredients listing!

        • Sarsie

          Thank you so much, I really appreciate it! It is slightly off-putting that they don’t have that info on their site anywhere that I could find, so that people who have sensitivities could have that information readily available. Also, it appears that they have just listed the ingredients for *all* colors in one listing, instead of separating them out by color or adding in a “may contain” section for the ingredients that vary by color. I think their use of square brackets is supposed to indicate that, but it’s not explicit.

          I really really love the look of their products, but I think I’m going to abstain for now because they don’t seem completely careful or thorough on their end of things. But thank you again for the ingredients listing and your swatches are beautiful!

          • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

            No problem! I think they included ingredients with the 6 shadows they sent me, but I spaced on searching for the ingredients on their website. I emailed them and they replied promptly.

    • http://www.clumpsofmascara.com Brittany

      These look absolutely stunning but really it’s the purple that rocks my world!

    • Cindy Ingalls

      Love these colors–must have!

    • Lisa Heath

      These look amazing! And OMG that purple!

    • Anastasia

      What a fantastic roundup of summery shades! I’m especially digging that celery green and purple.

    • FabZilla_Kath

      wow, only 5$ each? great pigmentation and packaging!

    • http://www.thepaintedrogue.wordpress.com Syirael

      PURPLE!! :-D <3, *happydance* etc.

    • http://cinseven13.blogspot.com/ cinseven13

      some great shades!

    • Justina

      I love the shade Dare!

    • Ashley P

      These are all beyond pretty. I love the colors and they are cream shadows!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        They’re not exactly a creme. they’re more like a damp pigment.

    • michele s

      Those are so beautiful, I’d love to try them!

    • Betzy Carmona

      You have a great selection of shades, I want to place an order now that they have such an amazing deal going on.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Yes, they do!

    • http://www.honeygirlsworld.com/ Honeygirlk

      I am in love with I Heart This… seriously I can’t stop using it. Thank you so much for the recommendation. I just wish that they sent everyone’s order in a box… I didn’t get a pretty box for my 6 shadows… but heart it was just for those reviewing their products. :/

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Yeah my order of 3 shadows did not come in a box like my original 6. so glad you like the shadows!

    • http://theplasticdiaries.com Kimmi @ The Plastic Diaries

      These are beautiful shades but I don’t like applying eyeshadow with my fingers so I think I would get frustrated with them.

    • Vulcan_Butterfly

      I love the colours! I think Mermaid’s Kiss, Ibiza, and Dare would go well together for a summer look.

    • Lark Dennis

      I am obsessed with this brand! Love the shadows, and the sweet details of the packaging and shipping materials. I ordered a box of six, and just may get six more! (My initial six were: Sugar, Dare, Animal, Slave2Pink, Chipper, and Ibiza. Dare and S2P especially reminded me of you! All are stunning!)
