ColourPop Cosmetics Haul | 25+ Affordable Beauty Products

ColourPop Collection / Haul 2019

Few brands encourage my impulse shopping habits more than ColourPop. Not only does the brand create inexpensive, high-quality products, but they are constantly rolling out new launches and keeping up with the latest trends. Additionally, ColourPop frequently offers promotions that enable shoppers to buy their goods for a discounted price!

Please keep reading for my ColourPop Cosmetics Haul.

I am a huge fan of the brand’s Pressed Powder and Super Shock eyeshadow formulas but hadn’t tried much else from the brand. Unfortunately for my wallet, ColourPop ran a few promotions over the last few months that prompted me to pick up goodies en masse.

Not going to lie, this is a lot of stuff. Again, I paid very little for each item and quite a few things were actually free with my purchases.ย Please keep reading to see what I snagged during my ColourPop Cosmetics Haul.

Pressed Shadow Singles & Palettes:

ColourPop launched their line of Pressed Single Shadows in 2017. The brand has released countless shades and pre-made palettes over the years. I currently own three pre-made palettes and one small palette that I customized myself.

My favorite ColourPop palette is my customized one. The shades are unique to my collection. I love how each shadow I selected can be worn on its own for an effortless look. My only regret is that I purchased the small empty palette during my ColourPop Cosmetics Haul. I should have purchased the larger size of the palette. I know that I will buy more single shadows.

Single Shadow Pan Price: $4.00 USD

Single Shadow (with a compact) Price: $5.00 USD

Empty Mini Palette Price: $7.00 USD

I already have a dedicated review for the Through My Eyes Eyeshadow palette collaboration with ILuvSarahii. Although the shade selection isn’t groundbreaking, the palette is versatile and great for making neutral looks and bold looks with a pop.

Palette Price: $23.00 USD

Ooh La La! & It’s My Pleasure are the two newest babies to be added to my collection. I picked up these palettes during a huge ColourPop Cosmetics Haul while the brand was having a major promotion on-site.

While I appreciate the sturdy plastic packaging, I don’t like that ColourPop transitioned to plastic palette packaging for their new 9-pan palettes. Not only is the new packaging less environmentally friendly, but it is also harder to pop shadows in-and-out of each palette.

12-Pan Palette Price: $12.00 USD

Super Shock Shadows:

Out of all my ColourPop products, the Super Shock Shadows are my favorites. Not only are the colors easy to apply, but these are really convenient for single-shadow looks or for adding a pop to a more glamorous look.

I purchased the Double Rainbow Kit I was obsessed with the color selection. ย I wanted the Super Shock Shadow Vault, but didn’t want to invest that much ($99.00 USD) ย in a formula I had yet to try.

Single Super Shock Shadow Price: $5.00 USD

Double Rainbow Kit Price: $25.00 USD

Read my review of the ColourPop Double Rainbow Kit.

*Note, each color in the Double Rainbow Kit is available for separate purchase on the ColourPop website.

My only complaint with the Super Shock Shadows is the bulky packaging. Due to the unique creme-to-powder nature of the formula, the shadows have to be protected from air exposure. As such, each shadow comes in a compact with a case that twists on and off to keep unwanted air exposure at bay. I fully intend to buy more Super Shock Shadows from the brand.

Edit: My boyfriend actually surprised me with the ColourPop Super Shock Shadow Vault for Valentine’s Day. ๐Ÿ˜€ Let meย know if you’d be interested in reading a dedicated review on the Vault.

Loose Pigments & Jelly Much Shadows

Although I’ve never been a huge fan of loose pigments, I found myself lusting after the KathleenLights’ Zodiac Loose Pigments. I only picked up two shades in colors that are unique to my collection, The Archer and The Ram. Knowing that ColourPop’s first round of loose pigments wasn’t received well and that this formula is new to me, I wanted to be sure that I liked these pigments before trying additional shades.

Before rushing to grab these pigments I want to call out that Kathleen, herself, stated that these two pigments may cause staining on the eye if worn without an eye primer. Not all the loose pigments in the collection will stain the eye, but these two particular shades may do so.

Single Price: $6.00 USD

Zodiac Collection Price: $70.00 USD

I’ve yet to try any jelly shadows or highlighters. However, as someone with oily skin, I’m always down to try a product that promises to be crease-proof. I grabbed the shade, Half Moon, a duo-chrome plum shade with a frosty blue-green shift.

The Jelly Much Eyeshadow in Half Moon is ridiculously pigmented. It spreads across the eye with ease. It is easily applied with a brush or a finger and plays well with powder shadows.

However, I was surprised by the formula and texture of the product because it is not gel-like. In fact, I’d consider this to be more of a traditional cream formula rather than a jelly.

Jelly Much Price: $8.00 USD

Gel Eye Liners & BFF Mascaras

I’ve never tried any of ColourPop’s Gel Eye Liners. When the opportunity presented itself to purchase two of the brand’s purple liners in the Make It Reign bundle, I jumped. I have the shades Cry Baby and Piggy Bank.

Individual Liner Price: $5.00 USD

Make It Reign Bundle: $20.00 USD

Y’all I lost my mind over the BFF Mascaras. Again, KathleenLights’ reviews tend to really influence my beauty purchases. I always want to try any mascara she loves. Her lashes always look breathtakingly long and voluminous. That being said, Kathleen has such a close relationship with the brand, so I watched JKissa’s Mascara Try-On before making my purchase.

Single Tube Price: $8.00 USD

Bundle Price: $50.00 USD

Since the launch, I’ve heard mixed things about these mascaras. Blue Ya Mind and Left on Red tend to be universally raved about, while the standard black shade is not as widely raved about.

In complete honesty, I’m nervous rip these mascaras open. I don’t want the colors to try out too quickly (which is why these are still in the boxes!).

Pressed Powder Cheek

The Pressed Blush & Bronzer I grabbed were two of the most recent purchases that I snagged in my latest ColourPop Cosmetics Haul that took place during brand’s 20% off sale. I purchased the red-brown bronzer in the shade Opening Act and the peachy blush in the shade Main Chick.

ColourPop Pressed Powder Cheek - Opening Act Bronzer & Main Chick Blush
ColourPop Pressed Powder Cheek – Opening Act & Main Chick

I didn’t realize that these pressed cheek products didn’t come in a compact. I needed to purchase another empty palette before I started playing with these.

So far, I’ve found the formula of both the blush and bronzer to be subtle at first, but quite buildable. However, I ended up decluttering the bronzer later in the year due to extreme hard pan.

Single Price: $7.00 USD

Super Shock Cheek

Despite my oily skin, I love using creme products on my face and eyes. Not only are creme or creme-to-powder based products easy to apply, but they melt into the skin in a natural and effortless way. Having fallen head over heels in love with the Super Shock Shadow formula, I knew I wanted to try some of the Super Shock Cheek products.

During my most recent ColourPop Cosmetics Haul, I grabbed two highlighters and a blush. Originally, I wanted to try the highlighter in Flexitarian but ended up settling on the shades Lunch Money and Smoke ‘N Whistles.

Compared to ColourPop’s other creme-to-powder formulas, the Super Shock highlighters are the most creamy and buttery. The tiniest amount of highlight is needed to provide an impactful wham-bam glow. Lunch Money and Smoke ‘N Whistles are both extremely metallic highlighters, so fans of a subtle, natural look may not like this formula.

From a blush perspective, I tend to gravitate towards the same neutral colors, so I wanted to grab a color outside of my comfort zone. Thumper was a perfect choice.

Although Thumper is quite bright in the pan, the color applies much more subtly on the cheeks. As with all of the brand’s Super Shock products, pigmentation can be built up with additional layering. Applying with a blush brush gives the most natural, pink flush to the cheeks.

Single Price: $8.00 USD


If I’m being honest, I don’t love the ColourPop Liquid Lipstick formula. It how it dries out my lips and sinks into every fine line in my lips. However, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a free Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in a purchase that I made earlier this year.

Due to unforeseen delays in shipping my order to me, ColourPop sent this free liquid lipstick with a little apology note. This gesture definitely made a positive impact on me since I was not expecting to receive this item and was not upset at the slight delay in shipment.

While I’ve taken this lipstick out of the box, I have not opened it because I’ve been debating including it in a future giveaway. More details to come on this!

Liquid Lipstick Price: $6.50 USD

I purchased the Creme Lux Lipstick in the shade Friends, a gorgeous rich brown. I’ve been missing owning a shade like this since I decluttered my beloved Be Legendary Lipstick in the shade Mocha.

Creme Lux Lipstick Price: $7.00 USD

While evaluating my collection, I noticed a gap in my lip liner color variety. I had a large selection of nudes, pinks, and a few reds, but lacked a deep brown color. Given that I purchased the Friends Creme Lux Lipstick, I figured that the Lippie Pencil in the shade Pitch would be a perfect addition to the family.

However, I want to call out that ColourPop failed to properly quality check my most recent order, so this pencil failed to arrive with the rest of the goodies. This was likely due to the high volume of orders happening during the 20% off sale.

I filled out ColourPop’s online customer service form and promptly received a response from one of their reps. After providing picture proof of my order slip and the goodies I did receive, they quickly put in a new order for me to receive my pencil.

Lippie Stick Price: $5.00 USD

Fourth Ray Beauty & Other Freebies

In addition to offering percentage-off discounts on-site, ColourPop frequently offers promotions based on your purchase. In my many ColourPop Cosmetics Hauls, I made purchases that qualified me for several freebie promotions.

I received quite a few goodies that I’m excited to test: mini Fourth Ray Come Clean Cleansing Duo, the All-Star Setting Spray, and a small shader eyeshadow brush!

Fourth Ray Cleansing Duo Price:ย $10.00 USD

I’ve heard mixed-to-negative reviews about the products from Fourth Ray, so I’m very curious to see whether these will work on my skin. I received the mini cleanser duo because I purchased a certain number of the BFF Mascaras.

All-Star Setting Spray Price:ย $10.00 USD

I’ve never heard anyone talk about the All-Star Setting Spray, but I plan to try this as the mixing medium to apply the CP x KL Zodiac pigments that I purchased.

I’ve never heard anyone talk about ColourPop’s brushes, so I am curious to see how this flat shader brush will apply eyeshadow or concealer.

P.S. I think I qualified to receive this due to my purchase of the KL x CP pigments, but I’m honestly not sure! This was a total surprise to receive.

E3 Brush Price:ย $6.00 USD

Final Thoughts on my ColourPop Cosmetics Haul & Collection

As a brand, I love that ColourPop enables makeup lovers across socio-economic classes to experiment with makeup without worrying about breaking the bank. ColourPop Cosmetics Hauls are much more affordable than the average brand.

Throughout all my purchases ColourPops has gained my trust. Every experience I’ve had with the brand has been professional, prompt, and positive, even when mistakes were made with certain orders.

The only issue I have with ColourPop is the frequency of the brand’s promotions and releases. In some ways, ColourPop is like a Fast Fashion brand (in the sense that they price their goods so cheaply and constantly churn out products in a way that drastically shorten release timelines and encourages impulse shopping).

ColourPop encourages the hyper-consumerist part of me to spend money in a somewhat reckless way. Anytime there is an discount I lose my mind. Money just flies out of my wallet. I want to try ColourPop’s formulas to see how they compare to products I already know and love.

All-in-all, the above products were purchased throughout my many ColourPop Cosmetics hauls amounted to less than $250.00 USD. The true spend amount may be even less considering how many items I purchased at a discount. This is INSANE given the quality.

      1. The lipsticks & lipliners from their Zoella collab + their new black eyeliner and a the new gloss! What did you order?

      2. ooo I havenโ€™t tried any of their new liquid liners yet! And Iโ€™m waiting for my Good Sport palette to arrive lol… Iโ€™ve been adding and removing it from my shopping cart for months, but finally just took the plunge and ordered it last week! ๐Ÿ™ˆโ˜บ๏ธ

  1. I love the shades of the Super Shock Shadows – I love the idea of individual pots – my pallets somehow seem to get thrown around by my toddler and the colours mix so these would be perfect for me! xxx


  2. First of all can I say this post has enabled me to plan a colourpop order whenever I get paid next. Second of all I love how in-depth you have gone with these reviews and I canโ€™t wait to read more. I would love to see some looks with these amazing products, do you have an Instagram where these products have been used? If so I would love to see them! A brilliant first post Iโ€™ve read of yours, definitely following!

    1. Hi Alex! <3 Thank you so much for this comment!!! I really love ColourPop – I haven't two looks in my review of the ColourPop x ILuvSarahii eyeshadow palette and I've posted a few looks to my IG stories in the past. But i'm definitely hoping to post more!! My IG is @thenewburygirl ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Thatโ€™s brilliant thank you for letting me know! I will definitely be checking them out, I will go and follow your Instagram now! I would love to see some fun looks with them supershock shadows because they look insanely good!

  3. I remember when ColourPop Cosmetics became a thing and I wanted to try them so badly! I still haven’t tried them. I also love how adorable their packaging looks, so flipping cute.
    You picked up some really lovely things!

    โœ– Jasmin

    1. Yes – it took me so long to finally purchase from them!! For a long time they just had the Super Shock Shadows and the lippies, but they really exploded in the market once they started doing pressed shadows and pressed shadow palettes!

  4. This really makes me want to order some things from Colourpop! I’ve only tried one of their lipsticks and one of their eye shadows so far. I saw their Zodiac loose pigment collection and reallllly want to try it out (especially since I’m a sucker for astrology). I’ve never used a product like that before so I’m hesitant to purchase one. Great post-I enjoyed looking at all the products that I have yet to try! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Aww Iโ€™m glad some of these products looked interesting to you! If you enjoy astrology (and colorful eyeshadow), ColourPop does sell a regular pressed shadow eyeshadow Zodiac palette, too!! Loose pigments can be fun, but they def take a little more effort than a regular shadow.

      What did you think of what youโ€™ve tried from CP so far?

  5. Yeah ok yeah yeah yeah, impressive collection, I must say :)))
    I meant to comment like days ago, but your article reminded me of the fact that I also owned a jelly shadow and that I’d never used it so I forgot about my comment and went to play with makeup. It creased really badly on me, way more than any powder shadow would. I only used concealer as a base (as I usually do anyways), so that might have been the problem. I’ll try it again with MAC Paint Pot, and hopefully make it work!

    1. lololol! Half Moon didnโ€™t crease on me when worn over a primer (I canโ€™t use concealer as a base sadly bc my oil slick eyelids break that down within like 3 hours lol). But Half Moon did stain a little. Iโ€™m curious – what shade were you playing with? (Side note: the Jelly Much Shadows in the Pantone collection are so beautiful ๐Ÿ˜ญ)

      1. So Iโ€™ve never found anything that works as well as the UD Primer Potion on my oilslick lids – BUT that primer (when over applied or old) can enhance eye texture.

        Currently Iโ€™m using the NYX HD Primer and itโ€™s fine, but not as long lasting as the UD one. But one pro is that it is cheaper and much thinner on the eyes. When this finally runs out Iโ€™ll be testing the Milani Make It Last Eye Primer, BUT it it were more readily available in the US I would try the P.Louise Base as Iโ€™ve heard nothing but rave reviews about that primer. (I may or may not splurge at some point to try this)

  6. Wow what a great haul!! I haven’t tried Colourpop yet but I def plan to soon. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the mascara. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d love to try the super shock shadows & jelly most.

      1. No way! The packaging on that collection looks unreal!
        How about Fourth Ray? Ive purchased a couple things and I am honestly really impressed for the price point!

      2. At first I wasnโ€™t impressed because I thought the packaging overshadowed the products because it is SOOOO killer. BUT then I watched the full collection โ€œswatch partyโ€ on YouTube and I was hooked! ๐Ÿ™ˆ

        Iโ€™ve never tried Fourth Ray, but I received some the cleansing duo during a promotion earlier this year, so Iโ€™m excited to try it. So hard to beat those price points! ๐Ÿ’œ

      3. Omg SO true! I kinda wish they went more all out on the colours like SUPER villain crazy colours but still it looks pretty great.

        And yes defs give it a go! Fair warning some of the products have a sorta weird smell? Lol? I think because its natural and fragrance free but I was a little weirded out at first haha but the Gel Cleanser “Am to the Pm” and the exfoliator “Clean Slate” have been amazing for my skin! My next binge order I’ll have to try some more, gotta wait for that next paycheque tho haha
