ColourPop Throws It Back Fall 2015 Collection | My Picks, Swatches & First Impression

Okay guys, I was really sucked in by this one. I haven’t kept track of a new Mac collection for years now. I didn’t even cave and buy Kathleen Lights’ ColourPop lippie stick in Lumiere that I really liked the look of. I honestly avoid limited edition products all together because I prefer quality, consistent products without the gimicks. And if I love it, I want to be able to get it again. 

Well, that all went out the window with ColourPop’s new Fall 2015 collection. It’s freaking 90’s themed, guys. I know, I know… 90’s is so “trendy” right now it’s almost disgusting but, for me, this was so nostalgic I couldn’t resist!

Plus, it was full of lip colors that scream “SARAAHH!”

(not Kylie, Sarah.)

Without further ado! Here are my picks from this collection. Imma let the eyeshadows go first – save my favorites for last 🙂

I got Stereo, Party Time, I Spy and Central Perk (aw) – shown in this order in all photos

What I Think About The Shadows: All are $5 and I was less impressed with the pigmentation than I was hoping to be. Every review I’ve seen the person is so amazed by this. It wasn’t bad, but didn’t stun me. I will have to use these more and let you know!

Next, blush!

Cruel Intentions AND Never Been Kissed because I couldn’t resist both.

What I Think About The Blushes: $8 and well worth it. I think you can tell that Cruel Intentions has already been well loved (although I usually love the undertones of Never Been Kissed). The mystery texture (cream?!) to powder finish formula is AMAZING. I love wearing it on very minimal makeup days for an “I’ve just been outside in the sun and/or wind” look.

I ordered a few Lippie Pencils too…


Oh Snap and Grunge (shown left to right in the photo below)


What I Think About The Pencils: Worth the price of $5 as they do their job and help keep the Lippie Stix application cleaner, but if I had to choose these or the Lippie Stix, I’d choose the Stix.

And finally… the thing that drew me in most. Lippie Stix!

In Nevermind, Contempo, Contempo and Grunge

And, yes, that’s 2 Contempo’s…. they sent me two by mistake instead of Oh Snap. Oh well…

Sorry, I went a bit out of order on this one (worst blogger ever, I know). In the photo above, the swatches from left to right are Grunge, Nevermind, Contempo. 

What I Think About The Lippie Sticks: $5 each and definitely worth it. I want to get a few more wearable options because then I know I will wear them a ton. They are matte and slightly drying, but that’s expected and I think it makes up for it in wear time.

Final Thoughts: I will definitely be trying out more Lippie Stix in neutral shades and the obvious, unexpected standout were the Blushes which are a new daily go-to for me. The shadows and lip pencils “wow-ed” me a bit less, but to each their own. Either way, the colors are def fun and great for fall!

P.S. I snuck a couple of the Ultra Matte Lippies into my order too! They aren’t part of the fall collection, but they’re still great for fall (or anytime, they’re pretty neutral) and I wanted to sneak them in at the end here!

I decided to go with Beeper and Clueless (left to right) and I like them… a lot.

And that’s it. I swear.

For now.
