The Best ColourPop Cosmetics Products That Won’t Break the Bank

Published

on

ColourPop Cosmetics—maybe you’ve heard of it. Whether they’re being applauded for their latest lip launch or ogled over for their next-level shadow and blush textures, there’s no denying that the millennial makeup brand constantly has its lips (and lids and cheeks and brows) on the pulse of the hottest trends in beauty.

As a former beauty editor (and current beauty writer), I’ve always had ColourPop in my figurative back pocket, knowing it was a brand I needed to try but never quite making the time due to being under the silly assumption that, if it’s so cheap, how could the quality be that stellar?

Well, fast forward to quarantine, and your girl had all the time in the world to get hands-on with new beauty products. And thank god I did because I’ve found a handful (okay, two handfuls) of new products I’ll forever keep room for in my routine. So, if you, too, have ever questioned the hype or doubted the glowing reviews, let me be the first to admit: ColourPop Cosmetics is a brand for the books. And, if next-level beauty looks are of any consideration, it’s about time we all read up.

Why ColourPop

ColourPop has hundreds of gorgeous beauty products to choose from. Unlike some other affordable makeup brands, ColourPop’s formulas are truly exemplary, which has earned them the unofficial title of being the queen of dupes. Whether it’s their Lux liquid lipsticks and glosses (which are the affordable sister products to Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kits) or their color-coordinated, nine-shade palettes (which give Huda Beauty’s Obsessions palettes a run for their money), it’s clear to see ColourPop is onto something. And, let’s be clear: We’re all about it. After all, everyone deserves access to high-quality makeup products—even if they can’t swing the high-end markup.

With that in mind, read on for our favorite ColourPop products and links to our full reviews.

Truly Madly Deeply Shadow Palette

ColourPop
BUY NOW At ColourPop

Say hello to your new favorite neutral eyeshadow palette. Featuring 16 nude, peach, mauve, and champagne shades in satin, matte, and glitter finishes, this palette looks an awful lot like Huda Beauty’s The New Nude Eyeshadow Palette—only for a fraction of the price.

What really sets these shadows apart is their texture. While the satin and matte shades are particularly velvety, it’s the pressed glitter hues that really shine. According to the brand’s website, they’re made with self-adhering technology so that they’re less likely to flake off throughout wear. And as someone who has this palette in her arsenal, I can attest—these high-shine shades withstand the test of time. (Of course, applying a little eye primer never hurts.)

Like all eyeshadows, you can apply these pressed colors with brushes or your fingers. For major color pay-off, go with a flat, dense brush; for a dreamier wash, use a fluffy blending brush. And, when it comes to the glitter specifically, I personally like to apply it on top of a base shade using my ring or middle finger. That way, you can apply it exactly where you want it without any chance of fallout from blending.

Ms. Falsies Faux Lashes

ColourPop

BUY NOW At ColourPop

100 percent cruelty-free and 100 percent stunning. No, seriously, these faux lashes deliver the most natural-looking flutter. Unlike many affordable falsies, the Ms. lashes could honestly be mistaken for your natural lashes. They deliver volume and length without being over the top, which is why I like to have them on hand for days when a little extra flutter goes a long way. (Though, keep in mind that if you prefer a bigger, more va-va-voom appeal, ColourPop has other falsie styles to choose from, ranging from short and voluminous to wispy and long.)

The best way to apply these lashes is to start by catering to your natural flutter. Before you curl and coat your eyelashes with your favorite mascara, hold each falsie up to your lash line to see if you’ll need to trim the ends (of the lash line, not the lashes) to fit your eye shape. Once you’ve done all that, apply your favorite lash glue to the lashline of each falsie and press them into place.

It’s All Good Shadow Palette

If Natasha Denona’s Sunrise Eyeshadow Palette has a baby with Too Faced’s Just Peachy palette, this would be it. With 30 satin, matte, and pressed glitter shades to choose from, the potential eye makeup looks are endless.

Again, this palette—which works with all skin tones and types—features the brand’s highly-pigmented, ultra-velvety satin and matte shades, along with the self-adhering pressed glitter (which, to be honest, I still can’t wrap my head around how luxe it feels given the price). That’s what I love most about this palette: You get dozens of the industry’s hottest shades without shelling out beaucoup bucks or stuffing your vanity with multiple palettes to do so.

The Full Beat Makeup Tools & Accessories

First of all, these pastel makeup sponges are precious. Round in all the right areas, not to mention incredibly soft, they look and feel like something that will offer a heavenly effect for makeup routines of all kinds. For this very reason, I decided to add the bundle of five sponges into my own routine.

As a tried-and-true beautyblender user, I was skeptical of them, which only made me love them even more once I wet them and put them to work.

Where the velvet blending sponge is great for creating a dewy, almost airbrushed finish, the pointed detail-blending sponge works like a charm under my eyes and around my nostrils to minimize creasing and expertly conceal. Then there’s the hourglass sponge. This uniquely-shaped makeup tool quickly became a fave for applying foundation, as I prefer lighter coverage, which helped bounce it on just right. Lastly, the two blending sponges—both feature a flat edge, and both work wonderfully for blending out any areas that look caked on.

Just remember: These work best with cream and liquid formulas, so if you’re a powder gal, they may not be worth clicking ‘Add to Bag.’ Unless, of course, you’re using their flat edges to press translucent powder into your face for the ultimate bake, in which case, have at it. And, speaking of translucent powder…

Translucent No Filter Loose Setting Powder

ColourPop

BUY NOW At ColourPop

Over 945 ColourPop shoppers have weighed in on just how magnificent this setting powder is. Where most powders have a chalky, dry finish, this translucent setting powder is soft and velvety. What’s more, it was tested against photo flashback, so wrapping your makeup routine with it shouldn’t put you at risk for any ghostly photo opportunities.

What’s nice about this powder is that there’s a translucent shade for all skin tones—soft pink and peach for light, caramel and banana for medium, and banana and deep for dark. As for the traditional translucent shade, it’s designed with fair, light, medium, and medium-dark skin tones in mind. Whichever shade you choose, dust it on with a fluffy powder brush or press it into place with a slightly damp angled makeup sponge.

Lux Liquid Lip

ColourPop

BUY NOW At ColourPop

If you feel like you’ve searched high and low to find a natural-looking demi-matte lipstick, only to come up empty every time, you’ll be stoked to discover this bomb liquid lipstick. The creamy whipped formula glides on with ease and, while drying into a soft velvet matte finish, never, ever dries your lips out. Because of this, I like to keep Air Kiss (which looks fab on all skin tones, I might add) stocked and ready in my routine at all times. After all, you never know when you’ll need a quality nude.

Prefer a lighter or darker nude? You’re in luck! ColourPop’s Lux Liquid Lip is available in over a dozen shades, ranging from pale nude to rich red.

Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Creamy Concealer

ColourPop

BUY NOW At ColourPop

Available in 30 shades, this ultra-light, ultra-creamy concealer blends in beautifully on all skin tones—even with zero prep. Add makeup primer, CC cream, or foundation to the mix before applying it, and the result is even more dreamy. To the point where dabbing the shade Fair 20 N into my skin literally looks like my natural skin tone, but flawless as can be.

That said, if you’re more for high coverage, this concealer might not be for you. While it conceals redness and dark circles, you can’t use it to hide things like tattoos—even super tiny white ones like the one I have on my wrist.

Lux Gloss

ColourPop

BUY NOW At ColourPop

I’m all for a high-shine, non-sticky lip gloss—and this is it, y’all. While your hair will definitely stick in it if the wind blows (or something like that) on its own, the ultra-smooth formula glides like butter between your lips. That plus the light, cakey scent make it a truly delicious addition to any makeup routine.

In terms of shades, you have a few to choose from. While the light pink Blissful shade is the ultimate pink nude—and one of my all-time faves—Slow Motion is a ‘90s dream, and Dream Queen is a stunning lush peach hue. And those are my top three picks. Who knows, you may gravitate more toward the remaining shades. Regardless, whichever shade you choose, you’re sure to swoon over the luxe formula, doe-tip application, and subtle shimmer.

Brow Boss Gel

ColourPop

BUY NOW At ColourPop

I’m not typically one for tinted brow gels. As is, my arches are pretty lengthy, and coating them in color looks more Groucho Marx than gorgeous Gigi. The point is, when I tried this tinted brow gel—specifically, the Light Brown Shade—I questioned everything I thought I knew. For the first time, my brows looked perfectly groomed after a tinted brow gel. I credit the ultra-small spoolie tip and non-clump formula. And, given nearly 600 shoppers have touted the gel for the same, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll dig this affordable addition to your arch routine.

Brow Boss Pencil

ColourPop

While we’re on the topic of brows, let’s take a moment to applaud this truly game-changing pencil. The teeny-tiny tip makes sketching hair-like strokes easier than ever. And don’t even get me started on the formula. The soft tip offers noticeable color pay-off without making it look like each stroke is drawn on. Rather, you can achieve the look of perfectly brushed-up brows, one stroke at a time. I’m all for it. And, given it’s sold in nine shades, chances are, you will be too.

Super Shock Blush

ColourPop

BUY NOW At ColourPop

Trust me when I tell you this blush is unreal—in whatever shade you choose. While the round compact looks like a powder, when you touch it, you’ll be shocked to find a bouncy, cream-like texture that goes on like the most stunningly pigmented powder. I’ve honestly never tried anything like it.

The unique formula makes it easy to apply with fingers, brushes, and sponges alike, and the high-pigmented finish ensures it will show up on all skin tones.

Super Shock Highlighter

ColourPop

BUY NOW At ColourPop

It just dawned on me why these cheek products are part of the Super Shock collection—because their dreamy texture is truly mind-boggling. And, when you pair that creamy texture with a light-reflecting highlighter, the results are even more stunning.

One swipe of the bouncy pigment will create an airy wash, though you can apply more layers to achieve a denser, more major finish. If a light dusting is your goal, use a fluffy angled highlighter brush; if you prefer more pigment, opt for fingertip application.

Super Shock Shadow

You already know what I’m going to say at this point. So let me be frank: If you swoon over easily-blended eyeshadow, this eyeshadow formula will quickly replace all the others in your routine. You can apply it with your finger or a brush—either way, it will turn out beautifully.

Lippie Pencil

ColourPop

BUY NOW At ColourPop

Finding a lip pencil that creates the perfect border to prevent feathering and messy corners is a tough feat. Fortunately, ColourPop makes it super easy. Their Lippie Pencil is creamy but won’t blur; it’s highly pigmented but not stark. The result? Perfectly lined lips every time.

Lippie Stix

ColourPop

BUY NOW At ColourPop

Once you line your lips, it’s only fitting to fill them in. And, when it comes to starting with ColourPop’s Lippie Pencil, there’s no better way to complete the look than with the brand’s Lippie Stix. The thin tube of satiny-matte lipstick fits perfectly into and around the contours of the lips to create the perfect pout every time. I’m a big fan of the Trust Me shade, but they’re gorgeous (all 24 of them). Best of all, they’re infused with shea butter and vitamin E, so they never leave your lips feeling dry.

Allbirds Launches Pink Running Shoes

Allbirds Pink Running Shoes

We’ve all heard the canonical phrase, “on Wednesdays, we wear pink” from the 2004 cult classic Mean Girls, but the phrase has been reincarnated in today’s launch of the Allbirds x Lindsay Lohan collab which declares, “on Wednesdays, we launch pink.” The pink to which the beloved brand is referring is a limited edition Lux pink color of the Allbirds Tree Flyer running shoe, available in both men’s and women’s sizes. The shoe also comes in six other color options and has gained attention for being both sustainable and a comfortable and reliable training shoe.

Women's Tree Flyers - Lux Pink

The shoe was most recently included in Runner’s World’s “What We’re Testing” roundup for May. Runner-in-Chief Jeff Dengate found the shoe to be lighter and bouncier than Allbirds’ original running shoe, the Tree Dasher. “It’s a little lighter than the Dasher, the upper feels a bit more refined for running fast, and the innovative midsole is soft but can handle my daily runs,” stated Dengate. “It’s still a little heavier than comparable shoes—and there are a lot of great daily trainers you can find for $160—but it shows promise that Allbirds is committed to making a great running shoe without using petroleum-based products.”

Women's Tree Flyers - Lux Pink

While sustainability has become a top priority for countless consumers, many companies have fallen short of the mark with their supposedly eco-friendly offerings, which have either become subject to greenwashing or are simply sub-par products. But Allbirds is actually doing the work, creating a quality product that’s also actually eco-friendly. This shoe in particular is carbon-neutral and contains materials like castor beans, eucalyptus fiber, merino wool, and recycled water bottles. The brand has also pledged to continue lowering its carbon footprint as it expands its product offerings.

Women's Tree Flyers - Lux Pink

Besides her fame—and ties to their slogan—Lindsay Lohan may seem like a bit of an odd choice for a running shoe collaboration, but Allbirds says that was intentional. They state on their website, “with Lindsay’s help, we’re reminding the world that anyone and everyone can lace up and move their body.”

Hi! Coming to you super quickly to share 4 items I ordered from the Girl With Curves for Lane Bryant collection. If you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably OVER me talking about it. But it’s good for many reasons!

Review: Girl with Curves for Lane Bryant Collection
Hi! Coming to you super quickly to share 4 items I ordered from the Girl With Curves for Lane Bryant collection. If you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably OVER me talking about it. But it’s good for many reasons!

Here’s why it’s a big deal:

I was 4 for 4: Do you know how rare it is that I keep every single item in an order?! Usually fit or fabric is off in some way or another, or I just don’t like garments on me. Keeping 100% of the things I buy doesn’t happen often.
Styles look great on so many body types.

Unexpected wins: Between color and *pants* this collection filled some major style gaps in my closet. I have an incredibly hard time with tops and pants (which is why 80% of what I own is dresses), and was able to find 2 tops AND 1 pair of pants that I loved.

Overviews of Lane Bryant

Lane Bryant

It sold out incredibly fast (some pieces, within hours) BUT Lane Bryant is now offering store shipping, so you can now order nearly all the items online again.

You can buy in store: So few plus collections can be purchased in nearly every city, and Lane Bryant is one of the few companies that has a wide retail presence. Go to the store and try these beauties on.

No fancy photos, just me and my iPhone, self-timer, and tripod. If you want to see these styles in-motion, I’ll put a video at the end here. Sorry it’s formatted oddly – I made it for IGTV.

Girl With Curves High-Waist Skinny Pant

Lane Bryant

It’s rare that you see me in pants and a shirt here, unless it’s a workout outfit! That’s because pants and shirts are difficult to find that fit my proportions. These pants tick all the boxes for me: they are high waisted (see video below for my tummy view), and stretchy, but look like trousers. They are sleek and I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of them.

My problem with tops is that I’m 5’10 and long torsoed. So many shirts look like crop tops on me. It’s perpetual flesh belt city with me and tops. This one? PERFECT. Extremely long, but not sloppy in the least. Very comfortable. And the color? I’ve NEVER worn this color lilac before, and it’s beautiful.

Girl With Curves Belted Wrap-Hem Sweater

Lane Bryant

This sweater would be perfect with the high waisted pants from above, but here I’m wearing it with the jeans I happened to have on when they arrived. It is very long, and my favorite color of the moment – a rich marigold. The knit is comfortable, and very soft. The sleeves are a fun surprise.

Girl with Curves Pleated Trench Dress

This item was the fastest selling one in the collection, and it’s easy to understand why (though, not so great in this photo! See the video below) It’s navy, and can be worn as a dress or as a trench coat. It’s a beautifully made layering piece, or dress on its own. This will be a piece you can wear for years.

When a follower and friend reached out to me on Instagram and told me I should try shopping Nasty Gal’s plus size clothing, I was surprised to learn that the brand carried clothing for plus size women. And I’m not sure how I didn’t know…given that I absolutely worship Sophia Amoruso, the founder of Nasty Gal.

Does Nasty Gal have plus sizes?

Lane Bryant

I went straight to the Nasty Gal plus size clothing section hoping that I would stumble upon a gold mine of cute plus size clothing. Upon my first couple of scrolls, I was intrigued. I instantly saw pieces that I loved including this From New Button plus size skirt and this Never Stop Wandering plus size graphic tee, which is sadly out of stock! At first glance, I really loved the laid-back, but the chic vibe of the collection. However, I felt like there weren’t many options.

The plus size section only had 150 pieces, whereas the straight-size section had more than 500 garments. Aside from the slim pickings, I will say that the price point was perfect for me and my budget. I ended up getting this whole outfit for less than $30—with shipping included—during a sale. I was a little nervous to order this skirt because I noticed it was a non-stretch fabric.

What is Nasty Gal sizing like?

Lane Bryant

My usual rule when shopping online is to size up if it’s not stretchy or stay away from it at all costs. However, I decided to take a chance on the skirt and order my usual size. Besides, you all know I cannot resist a plus size mini skirt. When I got the clothes in the mail, I instantly tried on the skirt to see if it would fit. To my surprise, it was actually a little loose in the waist. The material was much thinner than I thought it would be, which I think helped the fit be so spot on. The T-shirt fits perfectly, as expected.

All in all, I am very happy with this look. I think the skirt is super cute and it could be paired with almost any kind of top. The T-shirt is my favorite, and I can’t wait to wear it with jeans and everything in between. I really hope that Nasty Gal continues to add to its plus size selection because I feel like the brand has a unique style and perspective to offer the plus size community that it hasn’t already seen!

If there is a brand that you would like for me to test out, feel free to reach out to me via email or on Instagram! I am always open to suggestions.

Lane Bryant is my go-to for a few key product categories.

Lane Bryant Reviews

I’ve been wearing their Cacique line of intimates for years. I buy my shape wear at Lane Bryant, both their house line and the Spanx brand. I look to LB for quality tanks and tees that last, as well as the occasional blouse, dress, and sweater. So many plus size brands are ultra trendy, and Lane Bryant remains one of the few places you can shop for basics and staples.

Lane Bryant’s Cacique line of undergarments is a mainstay amongst plus size shoppers. They’ve largely been unchallenged as a primary source of bras in particular because they are the most well known and universally available. My first fully fledged bra came from Lane Bryant many many years ago and I remained a loyal customer through significant changes in band and cup size. Now, at a 44/46 DD, I continue to shop there, and I’m not entirely sure why.

Lane Bryant Reviews

Over the years, despite the fact that Lane Bryant could be considered an institution in the realm of plus size bra shopping, I’ve become extremely disillusioned with the Cacique brand. It took some time on my part, but I’ve nailed down the things that present the most problems for me.

The styles have largely remained the same. Cacique hasn’t followed many of the trends and the vast majority of bras remain the same from season to season with minor changes in color or print. The exception to this rule seems to be the brand’s undying devotion to all things cage bra and strappy detail, which isn’t entirely unappealing, but it would be nice to see more diversity in the brand’s offerings. I rarely see any innovation in construction or styles outside of back smoothing or cooling technology.

Lane Bryant Reviews

Lane Bryant has the potential to offer plus size customers, especially those in higher band sizes that are frequently ignored even by full bust lines, stylish designs in new shapes that reflect the shifting nature of the lingerie industry. But rather than make advancements on the actual style or primary function of a bra, the brand has instead decided to mostly focus on making plus sized bra shoppers minimize their back fat.

Lane Bryant Reviews

For example, Cacique could easily introduce a bralette, a style that is becoming increasingly available in plus sizes. Cacique could seize the opportunity to introduce trends that are almost impossible to find in plus, like sportier styles. The failure to innovate results in a lack of new and exciting options every season.

Frequent lack of availability in larger band sizes. My primary reason for sticking with Cacique for as long as I have is a simple one. A 46 band isn’t the most widely available, even among lines that are considered plus-sized bra lines. I admit, part of Cacique’s appeal is the relative breadth of selection, especially when compared to other retailers.

For example, filtering the results at Macy’s to show bras only in a 46 band size takes me from almost 900 bras to 20. The same filter at Nordstrom takes me from 915 options to 7.

Even Torrid’s selection is cut nearly in half once the 46DD filter is applied.
