Three weeks ago, I placed my first Colourpop eyeshadows order on their official website. I saw that global shipping was free for orders over $50 so I went to town on the eyeshadows. I chose 9 singles (which cost $3 or $4 each) and 2 super shock shadows ($5 each) (pictures below). I also bought a large palette and got two mini palettes for free.
All in all, my order was $52 (that’s €44) and it took a couple of weeks to get to Belgium. I was delighted to find out that the overseas taxes on my US parcel were $39 (€33), which kind of defeats the purpose of buying cheap makeup.
The quality of the Colourpop eyeshadows is really incredible considering the price point. The are extremely pigmented, blend easily and have a really good staying power.
The Super Shock Shadows are absolutely mind-blowing. I’m not quite sure if they’re semi-pressed pigments or something, but it feels like dipping your fingers in butter.
The pigmentation and staying power are insane, as well. I can’t believe they cost $5.
This first purchase has definitely made me want to build a bigger Colourpop eyeshadow collection, especially the Super Shock ones. I’m not that drawn to the palettes, as I already have many.
There’s a very tempting offer on the website right now: buy one Super Shock Shadow, get one free. However, many of them are already out of stock and I can’t bear the thought of coughing up twice the price of my order because of taxes.
If you know where to get Colourpop products over here in Europe or if you know of a petition that I could sign somewhere, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT.
Are there any Colourpop eyeshadows you think I should get? Do you think it’s worth investing in their new foundation or their concealer?
If you are from outside the US, do you have any tips on how to get Colourpop shipped to your country?
