I had to do it at least once! When Colourpop announced they are now shipping internationally, my heart skipped,skipped a beat 🙂
My heart then proceeded to drop when I saw what they were charging to ship internationally. $25! And that doesn’t include custom clearance! But like the good little makeup fiend that I am, I couldn’t stop thinking about ordering. They give you $5 off if you sign up to their newsletter so I thought, feck it! I’ll even just do it the once and take the hit. Then, I proceeded to go over the Irish customs limit too (I think anything over $25 puts you in the danger zone of having to pay tax. I just couldn’t justify all of that money to ship it over and only getting a couple of things. I wanted to get my monies worth. I risked it and it paid off. I did not have to pay customs on the package. But that doesn’t happen all the time, I think it really is just the luck of the draw. If you fancy fancy seeing what I got. Here’s my first ever Colourpop haul.
Colourpop really know how to package a…package! The box is so pretty.
The packaging on the products themselves is really nice too.
I picked up two of their Super Shock eyeshadows.
‘Game Face’ which is a penny bronzed metallic colour.
And ‘LALA’, which is a rose gold metallic shadow.
They both cost $5 each.
I picked up one of the Supershock Cheek Highlighters.
This is in the shade ‘Lunchmoney’.
Colourpop describe it as a soft light gold with a reflective duo chrome finish.
These cost $8 each.
The powder products feel like nothing I have ever used before. They’re nearly wet to the touch and have a gel like consistency when you apply them to the skin. Colourpop tell you that the formula is best applied with the fingertips.
I chose one of their Crème Gel Colour Liners to try.
This is in the colour ‘Show Me’.
I thought it would be complimentary to the shadows. These are $6 each.
And one of their Crème Gel Liner Pencils too that will hopefully go with the other eye products.
This is in the shade ‘Stomper’. These are $5 each.
Onto to lip products. I ended up getting three.
One of their sheer Lippie Stix.
This is in the shade ‘Tiger’.
It’s $5 each for these.
And then, two Ultra Matte Lips.
The Ultra Matte Lips are $6.
Colourpop haul dunzo 🙂
I placed my order with Colourpop on the 12th of July. They did give me a USPS tracking number and I could track my package up until it went on to the international flight. Then, I couldn’t get an update on it. I received my order from my regular postman, on the 26th of July. My total bill was $66 with the $5 discount. That worked out at €61.31 and I paid with Paypal. As I mentioned already though, I was lucky customs let the package through and I didn’t have to pay an extra penalty.
What do you think? Are you tempted? The products themselves are really reasonable priced, I think. If they brought down the shipping, I think I would be more than happy to shop with Colourpop again. First impressions are really good, I like the products I got, alot 🙂
