Colourpop – Review and Swatches

Really excited with my purchase from Colourpop in the USA. I received free shipping to South Africa when they had a promotion last month, which meant that there was no minimum purchase required for free shipping worldwide. However, currently if you purchase for $30 then you eligible for free shipping worldwide which is amazing.

Now lets get to the review of the products I purchased. I love an emphasis on cheeks to give you a beautiful glow and colour so I got the Super Shock Cheek in colours – Smokin’ Whistles (right), Churro (middle) and Flexitarian (left). I have done a swatch below so you can see the shades.


The texture is smooth and creamy which is what I love about these products. As you can see above that Churro has a golden peachy colour while Smokin’ Whistle is a light pink and Flexitarian is more of a light gold mixed with silver. I used Flexitarian for a wedding this weekend and it gave my cheeks a pop of highlight which was gorgeous. Colourpop products come packaged quite well, yet I did have one of the super shock cheek which was slightly cracked inside, so that was a little disappointing. I think that Colourpop should some bubble wrap inside their boxes to secure the items from tossing around inside.

I also purchased an Ultra matte lip  in the colour donut which is a light pink and a nice matte that doesn’t over dry the lip like some other brands. Colourpop has a big range of products and they always have different themes with colours that are fit into the current season we in.

Colourpop is a super amazing brand and I can’t wait to purchase more from them in the future – definitely worth it. I have so many of their products on my wishlist and really excited to try them all out.
