ColourPop Cosmetics Collection/Haul

Few brands encourage my impulse shopping habits more than indie beauty darling, ColourPop. Not only does the brand create inexpensive, high-quality cosmetics, 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!

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 – but again, I paid very little for each items and quite a few things were actually free with my purchases. Please keep reading to see what I snagged.

Unfortunately, many of us operate under the misconception that skin care becomes a necessity in our 30s and 40s. But this is so wrong! Why? It is far easier to maintain your skin’s youthful qualities rather than take measures to treat set in wrinkles, dark spots, or other signs of aging.

While I regularly splurge on more expensive skin care, the drug store is upping their game by offering affordable, high quality skin care to help individuals with a myriad of skin care issues at any age. Please keep reading to discover your new favorites at the drug store.
