Cosmetics is a cruelty free makeup range that deliver high quality, on trend products at an affordable price. A friend recently gifted me with some products so I was super excited to test out their products and see if they lived up to the hype. I was given two eyeshadow palettes and two individual eye
shadows and today I’ll be sharing my thoughts with you.
The Golden State of Mind shadow palette contains
15 ultra shimmery eyeshadows in pinks, silvers, yellows, oranges and neutrals.
All shades are super soft and have a good colour payoff. This is a great
palette for an everyday dewy look and allows you to create a number of looks
due to the great selection of colours. I like to use this palette to highlight
my inner corners and I even use it to highlight the face. The colours are soft
and would suit a variety of skin tones, and the shades can also be layered for
a unique finish.
The You Had Me At Hello shadow palette contains
12 eyeshadows in a mix of both matte and metallic shades. The colours lean
towards pinks, purples and browns and all shades are buttery soft and easy to
blend. What I like most about this palette is the endless possibilities it
provides; it can be used for a subtle daytime look or built up to a dramatic
nighttime look. I also love the mix of matte and shimmer shades; I lean towards
matte shades more as they always look modern and fresh. This is my favourite palette out of the two as it’s just so versatile.
The High Tea Super Shock Eyeshadow is a pressed coral shade with intense shimmer. It can be used as both an eyeshadow and face
highlighter. It comes in a pressed powder formula and compared to other
Colourpop eyeshadows it is not as soft or finely milled. I do find that I need
to press my brush quite hard into the compact to get a decent colour payoff. It
is well worth the effort though as it looks gorgeous once applied to the skin.
I have used this as both an eyeshadow and highlighter and I actually prefer it
as a face highlighter. It gives the perfect glistening glow to the skin and adds a nice pop of colour.
Cornelius is a pressed eyeshadow from their matte collection and is a warm
soft chocolate shade. The formula is buttery soft and very pigmented and applies to
the skin effortlessly. I normally use this to accentuate the crease and to add
depth to my eyes. This is probably my favourite shade out of my collection and
the one I reach for the most. It is perfect for a subtle eye look or to add
some warmth to a smoky eye. I’d recommend this shade as a staple to any makeup collection.
I’m extremely impressed with these Colourpop Cosmetics and can definitely see the hype surrounding their products. I find their eyeshadows to be just as good as some high end products I’ve tried yet are much more affordable.
