Colourpop, another one of those brands that is all over YouTube. Beauty Guru’s telling you that ‘they are amazing’ and ‘it is definitely worth the money’…. I have to say that I AGREE! I have tried numerous Colourpop products, and I have to say, I LOVE them all.
Colourpop is ‘100% fur baby friendly, bunny approved, and only test our products on humans’ which makes me happy beyond belief! I also notice that some of their products are also:
- Gluten free – although they do not recommend eating them 😛
- The state product last for 3 years if not opened and 1 year once opened
- A lot, not all, of their products are vegan
The product that I am going to review today is their highlighter in the colour ‘Wisp’. This colour is beautiful. The Colourpop website describes it as:
‘Golden champagne with highly reflective hues of gold duo chrome finishes.’ – Colourpop Website
What do I think?
Light champagne gold with a slight hint of duo chrome.
Smooth. There are no evident chunks of glitter which allows for a ‘wet’ highlight look that doesn’t make you look sweaty and greasy.
I haven’t noticed it fade throughout the day. It seems to stay put quite well. I do set it with a teeny bit of highlight powder to ensure the longevity of the highlight.
How do I apply it?
I use my finger tips. I find that I waste less product that way and the finished product is more intense then if you were to use a brush. I have also applied it with the elf small stipple brush (synthetic bristles) which also allows for a good application.
My highlighter came broken. I contacted the companies customer service who were extremely helpful. They sent a new one to me free of charge which I thought was lovely of them.
Would I repurchase?
Yes, definitely. The product is worth a repurchase for sure. The only thing I don’t like are the shipping fees. Sure, colourpop provide high quality, cruelty free products at an affordable price. However, when the shipping price is so high, it almost makes me think that it isn’t worth it. The shipping price goes by weight which irks me*. If I am going to buy products from the states, I want to be able to buy a good quantity to make it worth it, however, the more you buy, the higher the shipping price goes.
Where can I purchase it?
The only place that I know you can purchase it from is the Colourpop website.
