I've ordered from them twice.
The first time was their one year birthday promo. I had been wanting to try them and it seemed like a good time since I'd get a free shadow and the $5 off. PROCESSING TOOK 10 BUSINESS DAYS. Then, once it finally shipped, I was given the wrong tracking number. I emailed them, got the right tracking, and my package a few days later. In total it took 14 business days which I think is kinda pushing it. But my products were great. The birthday girl shadow was pure sparkle but it was also super soft and creamy which made me wanna try their other shadows.

My second order was placed and arrived at my door in three days! I ordered two shadows, another lipstick, and their lip primer. The shadows, Hanky Panky and Bill, are amazing. I haven't decided how I feel about the lip primer yet, but I've never used one before so I don't really know what it should be doing.

My mom has also ordered from them and she got a set of 6 lippie stix and they're all great. Out of the 9 or 10 I've tried, brink is my favorite.

I think their customer service is great and the products are worth giving a shot. Definitely look up lots of swatches before ordering and make use of any promo you can. Honestly though, if they didn't have such a wide color selection I don't think they'd be worth it.

Their matte lippies are apparently fabulous and I'm very tempted to do an order but I can't justify it haha.

I've ordered from them three times and I love the lipsticks but I just never reach for them over my other lipsticks. I have some eyeshadows and blushes but I just can't find a brush to use them with. I always get sucked in their products are so cute lol I'm hoping I'll use the liquid lipsticks because there are some pretty ones I want.

They are AWFUL. First off, it took foreeever for them to process and ship my order literally two weeks and I bought them the day they were released. The website was having maintenance done so I couldn't even get them until the end of the night and most colors were sold out but I still got three. Also why were they doing maintenance the day they were released? They weren't updating the page to add the products it was literally an all day thing. Anyway, got my package and no cute signed card that we usually get. I got the colors trap, bumble, and tulle. The colors are way different looking on the website. The packaging is so terrible at first it's fine but after one use and you close it it's an absolute mess I honestly don't even understand when I apply them it gets all over me. They are so uncomfortable even with a lip balm, they feel exactly like you are a powdered donut and you have powdered sugar on your lips. It's so dry and it cracks, they are uneven, you need a lip liner. They are so bad DO NOT get them!

On the matte liquid lipsticks, kathleenlights did a demo of them and while she still talks them up, in her swatches you can tell they're patchy, drying and basically horrible. She started replying to people in the comments and finally conceded that they're pretty bad. You can see how bad they make grav3yardgirl's lips in her swatch video too (she normally has dry chapped lips but omg bad. The color is wonky in her videos too because of how she tweaks things). Both vids and the lipsticks were discussed in their threads if you go back a little.

As for the shadows...all I've heard bad is about the ones coffeebreakwithdani released in her quad. Apparently one is a dupe for some other color they had around Xmas and the two "transforming" colors don't really do shit. I've heard good things about their shadows in general (from this thread) but I don't know that I'd purchase them myself. I have a feeling they would dry out on me before I could really use them.

Lol just lol at their Lippie Stix having just 1g of product (in addition to a silly name). I guess that's why they're just $5? I suppose it's a good thing if you're looking to just try a new lip color, but you can buy a MAC lipstick with 3g of product for $15, or a Maybelline lipstick with 4.2g of product for $9 at CVS or even as low as $5.59 at Target. Would anyone who's tried them say that they're MAC quality, or more like drugstore quality?

As for the matte liquid lipsticks, TotalMakeupJunk101 bought them all with her own money and said most of them were crap:

Ok so here is an update on my products. I had purchased some in January 2015, and some in April 2015. I just went to go use them after not touching them for a while (trying to use some of my other palettes). They were tightly shut and hardly used. They are practically dry! Colourpop says they are good for a year but that is a crock of shit. My one eye shadow from April (4 months ago) is almost completely dry and cracking. I am so mad because I probably spent about $150 on their products, and now I can't use half my shadows.

So I guess if you plan on getting them, make sure you plan to use them every day and use them quickly! Man what a rip off! Other shadows last MUCH longer than that!

I love their ultra matte lipsticks :( They don't flake off on me and they don't make my lips look anymore dry than other matte products do. I use them with the lippie stix primer, though.

As with the eyeshadows tho, they're so hard to blend. I put one color in my crease, and it wouldn't budge so I ended up taking it off. Now i just use them on my lid or on the outer edge cause i can't be bothered to sit there for 10 extra minutes just to blend.

Yeah. I have Jellies, Zipper, and Sundae. I use Dr.Lipp to prime and it helps. But they still kind of crumble after wearing for a while. Especially if drinking.

What shades have you used?

I have Clueless and Solow, and they're really similar in color which I didnt realize before I ordered them. I'm on the website right now and I really want Jellies along with some other colors. How do you wear a blue lip? :D

I'm excited to try Colourpop but I'm not sure how I feel about them now that they're sending items to British youtubers but not shipping here. Like why should I go through those third party delivery services in the states and customs charges just to try the products when they are being shady and just attempting to build up a huge hype around themselves? Really frustrates me.

Hmm so I'm guessing you need to use the shadows rather quickly, even if the lid is closed tight and especially the matte ones, otherwise they dry up. I was just looking through my shadows and decided to see if they were still good and no, it had the consistency of clay lol

Oh well, at least I don't have over a dozen like those gurus.

YES! This was my problem! I closed the lids tightly and rarely opened them and they still dried out! I had the mattes for an even shorter time and they are worse than the metallic/sparkly ones. I did have quite a few and I have thrown away a lot of them, including all the mattes I bought. What a waste.

If they were the only makeup I used every single day, then maybe it would be worth it. But shadows are my thing and I like to have variety. So I would just stick to a few that I like instead of getting a collection. I personally love Bae and Rex and find them pretty unique.

It is just too much fuss to use the products. And I don't know how the hell these gurus say you can use a brush with the products because I have to use my finger to get the product to actually transfer to my lid. Then I can use a brush to blend edges, but not for application.

Also a few other updates. Even though I hated the first ultra mattes, when I started seeing gurus trying out the new releases that were an updated formula I thought I'd try them out as well. The formula is much better. However, they are nowhere near as long lasting or transfer proof. I got the collection "Kitty" with the mini ones. WOW they are TINY. And the two nudes look almost exactly alike. Kind of a waste IMO. So, a bit overpriced, better formula, but they don't wear as long and will transfer a bit.

Since I try to get free shipping, I added a liner and puppy love to my order. The color of the liner is great. It is creamy and easy to apply. But every day I wore it, the liner transferred to my contacts so badly I had to just wear glasses. So, idk. My overall feelings for this brand are up in the air.

They offer some great products, at a more affordable price, in a range that not many companies offer. However, the quality just isn't really there for me. Some products work, and some products work when you put in the extra effort, but other products fall flat for me.

I've had mine since February and my shadows haven't dried out. I use them all the time.

Awesome! Yeah I checked some more of mine, that I only opened a few times, and they are cracked and shrunk from drying out. The shade was Empire. Some of the other metallics are still a bit wet. But the mattes were like thick play doh. I ended up giving a lot of my Colourpop shadows to my sister and sister in law.


So maybe using yours every day as opposed to me who only used a few times... makes a difference? Lol seems counter-intuitive but maybe

^That's a good point and probably what happened to mine also, I purchased Mittens, TOAT, Play, cop a feel and Hanky Panky last of my orders with CP and barely used them so you'd think the formula should still have a good smooth consistency but I guess it's not the case lol

Did you guys hear about accounts being compromised after buying from CP? I hope they don't turn into the next Lime Crime or Gerard Cosmetics. People on Instagram have been saying they aren't answering their e-mails about this issue. Some people are saying they never received their orders but were still charged. I'd advise anyone who has ordered from them recently to watch their accounts and immediately contact Colourpop and their bank about it if they see anything suspicious. Their checkout seems fine but to be safe, use Paypal. I just placed an order with them a while ago, so fingers crossed! :|

^ No problem! :tu: Let's hope it was just a coincidence and isn't their fault security system/checkout.

I sent them an e-mail a day ago since they passed the processing time. I get they're a smaller business but the Canadian dollar is not doing well and I'd rather get a refund than waste money waiting weeks and weeks for my products. Hopefully they'll respond - it's a mixed bag on CS though. Some say their CS is great, some say they never answered their questions. I've also noticed they delete any negative comments or questions like "my order hasn't shipped in 2 weeks! where is it?" on their Instagram. I want to like this company, but they're making it difficult. :| Will update with further news and how international shipping was, if I ever get it.
