Today I’m happy to bring you my Colour Pop review. Colour Pop is a new cruelty free company based in California. The formula feels wet to me, but it’s a sort of pressed pigment.
Colour Pop is proudly cruelty free.

All colors swatched on primer, except 3, I Heart This and Girly.
On the Rocks
Vibrant true bronze with gold and violet glitter.
To me this looks like an aged bronze with hints of gold. The violet is easier to see in this swatch than it is when the color is worn.
Metallic rose gold with multi-colored multi-dimensional glitter.
This is a great rose gold shade.
This bright neon yellow green with pearlized finish totally reminds us of that night we were trippin’ on the beach making out with mermaids…wait…what?
I love this bright yellow-toned green.
Bright turquoise with a silver and gold duo chrome finish.
This is a bright turquoise with silver glitter.
Black drenched with multiple shades of blue glitter
This has a black base with turquoise and royal blue shimmer.
Shockingly bright neon purple with hot pink and violet glitter.
I love this purple! It’s a bright pink-toned purple with lots of shimmer.
Cool toned starlit bronze with a flash of silvery and multi-coloured glitter
This shade reads more as a brown than a bronze to me.
I Heart This
Cool toned silvery taupe with multi-coloured glitter
This color has such high shine. It really brightens the eyes when worn on the lid.
Creamy vanilla with a flash of pink and gold duo chrome finish
I love this color, it reminds me of an old L’Oreal Hip Pigment that I owned. The pink and gold iridescence is very strong.

The packaging for these shadows is white with a twist top. You’re supposed to cap these tightly when they’re not in use. Like a creme shadow, I would recommend storing these upside down.
Each Colour Pop eyeshadow is $5 and .07 oz of product. A typical Urban Decay eyeshadow is $18 and .05 oz of product, so the Colour Pop eyeshadows are a great deal for the price.
Colour Pop recommends applying with a finger tip and tapping it onto the skin. You can also use a synthetic flat brush. If you use a normal blending brush the color will diffuse softly. The best way, in my experience, is to build the color up with your finger tip. When I applied it with a brush, I had a little bit of fallout. When applied with my finger tips, I had no fallout.
These colors are super sparkly and have great color payoff. The formula is also extremely long wearing! It doesn’t stain, but man, does it not want to come off.
Overall, I really like this formula, despite having to apply it with my finger tip.
