For someone who doesn’t wear make up that much, I am obsessed with Kathleen Lights’ videos and because of her, I have finally joined the Colourpop wagon and bought few of their products. I finally understood the hype.
I was torn to buy it at first but luck was on my side, Colourpop decided to grace us with free international shipping above $50. I bought 6 lip products and two super shock cheeks.
The purchase process was annoying though because some of the things that we wanted to buy were always out of stock. The waiting game was getting a bit disappointing but we pulled through because they were stocking up for a sale and not to mention our currency has been going up and down since two weeks ago. My purchase actually locked at USD1=RM4.40. I was surprise that it got delivered to my doorstep exactly two weeks after we bought it! They promised the soonest would be three weeks.
Their cheek products are super pigmented. I have nothing bad to say about them but I have a feeling their formula doesn’t mix well with our weather because I think it can melt quite easily since the texture is a bit… ‘bouncy’ and super creamy as well. The pigment is on point, definitely worth the price. Not sure how long it will last on my cheeks tho.
I also bought their lippie stix but I don’t think I will be buying it again as it’s a bit too dry for my lips. I am sticking with their Ultra Matte, Ultra Satin lip products.
Below are the swatches for all lip products that I bought.

- Ultra Matte Lip – Bumble
- Ultra Matte Lip – Love Bug
- Ultra Satin Lip – Lost
I love how both satin and matte but at the moment, I am more drawn to their satin products since it has slightly glossy finish and their matte is really matte though but it is not drying. I prefer to use it without any lip balm because it somehow alters the colour. I think Colourpop has the same price range as Nyx but I can tell you that it is WAY better than Nyx. Definitely worth the hype.
I was swatching these with Zaahira just now and noticed that Speed Dial and (especially) Bumble are the closest dupe for Lolita II by Kat Von D. My friends know how obsessed I am with Lolita II and when I discovered this, I was beyond happy because it’s 1/3 of Lolita II price!
See, how close Bumble is to Lolita II?
I’ve tried all of their lip products and I love their formula. It is not patchy, it is creamy and it lasts quite long! Definitely going to take advantage of their free shipping again. Til then.
