Swatcharama! : Colourpop Cosmetics Pressed Pigments

image1 (2)

Hello My Bunnies!

I was playing with makeup at 1 am in the morning (yes I’m an insomniac and clearly makeup’s my therapy!) and I had the bright idea of posting some swatches just before going to bed because I love these eyeshadows soooo much! If you follow me on instagram (and if you don’t go do that right now!! Username’s “bunniesan”), you probably saw a photo of a lovely package of goodies by Colourpop Cosmetics, a birthday pressie from my bestie (she understands me! ) There were six pressed pigments (they are a cross between a pigment, cream eyeshadow, and normal eyeshadow!)  in there and let me tell you, I’m head over heels for each and every one of them. They are soooo buttery and creamy and almost feels wet to the touch. They glide on beautifully, and are super pigmented and sparkly! And the best part is, they are only 5 bucks (USD) a pop ! You can’t beat that! You can find them at : https://colourpop.com/

Forgive me for this shabby picture but I’ve already swatched and reswatched these shadows millions of times so the emboss is pretty much non existent now :/

~So Quiche : A soft olive with a highly reflective gold and pink violet glittery duo chrome metallic finish

~BAE: A rich eggplant purple with an emerald, and turquoise, glittery duo chrome metallic finish

~On The Rocks: A vibrant true bronze with gold and violet glitter

~3 : A cool-toned starlit bronze with a flash of silvery and multi-coloured glitter

~Sequin : A copper penny like shade with silver and gold glitter

~Game Face: An intense penny copper with a liquid like ultra-metallic finish

~You can see the glitters lot better under the yellow light but under the white light, the blue glitters in Bae stand out a lot more against the purple. If you want the blue stand out, you need to use a blue base underneath 🙂

Unfortunately the white light washed out the intensity of the colors so it’s definitely more accurate under the yellow light. I wasn’t able to use natural light since it’s night time 😦

I’ve already done two back to back looks using BAE and Sequin. Check out those posts if you like to see these shadows in action. Linking them down below along with some photos!

I highly recommend these pressed pigments/eyeshadows. The products are far superior than the price point and they can transform any eyelook from drab to glam! So what are you waiting for!!

XOXO
