ColourPop 30% Off Sitewide Haul

Every year, I place an order with ColourPop during Black Friday/Cyber Monday (we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in my country, so the two are pretty interchangeable for me and I keep mixing them up lol).

I’d already have a mental list of stuff that I’d been lusting after, from all their many releases throughout the year and during Black Friday/Cyber Monday they’d usually have a 30% Off Sitewide, which makes it the perfect time to purchase those things from my list!

In fact, I’ve been ordering from ColourPop during every Black Friday/Cyber Monday consecutively since 2016!

I picked up 5 Pressed Powder Shadow Palettes (9-pan) granted one was out of stock as a single (Going Coconuts) and had to be purchased as a bundle that came with 2 Eyeliners (Créme de Coco Set) and another was part of the 3pc Ulta Exclusive (Night Owl).

Unlike their previous bundles and sets where I usually owned at least one of the shades, since I hadn’t purchased from ColourPop in a while, there was no chance of me getting a repeat product (the shades were all new to me), meaning I could finally indulge!

I picked up 3 of those Midnight Masquerade Bundles from yet another Disney Designer Collection and a Blush + Lite Stix Duo (In a Twitter) from the Bye Bye Birdie Collection and a Just a Tint Lip Duo (Coconut Kiss) from the Coconut Collection and 2 Faux False Lash Bundles (3pc each) one from the Bye Bye Birdie Collection and another from I dunno’ lol

I also got a Tinted Moisturizer and Concealer from their new Pretty Fresh range and stocked up on some Brow Stuff and Tools including a Dual Ended Brow Brush and a Sharpener. Lastly, I got 2 Lippie Pencils and an Ultra Matte Lip and an Ultra Glossy Lip.

That said, most of them could be purchased individually. I was just saving $$ by buying them as a bundle.

The prices for everything will be listed below (all the way at the bottom of this post).

Not gonna’ lie, I was a bit disappointed by the fact that even though I purchased them as sets and bundles, most of the items arrived in separate packaging (like they normally would if you purchased them individually).

Only Coconut Kiss and In a Twitter and the Disney Midnight Masquerade Bundles arrived as actual sets.

Bronde Moment

Eyeshadow – ColourPop Paradox Super Shock Shadow (haulage here)
Lipstick – ColourPop Ziggie Lippie Stix (haulage here)
Sunglasses – Tom Ford Black Large Cat Eye Sunglasses
Handbag – Milano Padlock Black Leather Cross-Body Micro Bag
Top – Mango Cherry Flowy Striped Dress (haulage here)
Top – Forever 21 White Henry David Thoreau Truth T-Shirt
Jeans – H&M Dark Denim Blue Super-Stretch Treggings (haulage here)
Shoes – Karmaloop Black Studded Wedge Sneakers

I figured since I’d just recently posted photos of my hair a month after that horrible dye job (dis), why not post photos the day after?

Obviously, I’d seen my hair after that woman had destroyed it, but that was during night-time and in artificial lighting. The morning after, outdoors and in natural sunlight, I took one look at my hair color and let out a colorful stream of expletives. Not to beat a dead horse, but I payed a lot of money for dry and frizzy hair (my hair is still mad at me since that incident) and worst of all, that looked nothing like the ashy-blonde that I’d asked for (and shown them pictures of, from their own Instagram account lol)

It might sound like I might be exaggerating for effect, so I figure a picture is worth a thousand words ergo here ya’ go! That said, it’s not really that big of a deal. It’s just hair. I’m glad I went through with it anyway, because it confirmed the fact that as I’m getting older, I much prefer darker hair on myself.

Sunglasses: Louis Vuitton Aviators
Top: Mango Dark Heather Grey Printed Message T-Shirt (haulage here)

Shoes: Adidas Kanadia Trail Running Shoes in Dark Shale/Silver/Rave Pink (purchased from Shoes.com via Amazon.com in 2010)

Despite the fact that I was still traumatized from the time I took them to see Aladdin (full gory details here), I’d promised the kids that I’d take them to the movies to see Toy Story 4. We’d already watched 1-3 on Netflix like I’ve mentioned earlier (Popcorn Paragraph), so everything was still fresh for us. Plus, “Summer Camp” was over and the poor devils were getting restless.

ColourPop Final 2018 Haul

Unfortunately, other than the beautiful print with clouds amidst the star-speckled pastel-y background and all the gorgeous iridescent-y packaging, I wasn’t all that impressed by the ColourPop Holiday Collection this year. As per usual, towards the end of December, they came out with a Sale (I wanna’ say it was 40% off), in addition to a Free Eyeshadow Palette if you spent $50. Like I said, I wasn’t really all that interested in the Holiday Collection this year, but I placed an order anyway and snagged a few choice tidbits here and there, for a total of $100.80 which meant I got the Chasing Rainbows Palette (Holiday Collection) for free. Surprisingly, not one thing arrived damaged!

ColourPop Cyber Monday Haul

ColourPop had a 30% off site-wide sale during Cyber Monday. It wasn’t the most tempting deal of all time, except some of my favorite Super Shock Shadows had completely dried up and I needed to repurchase them before ColourPop decides to go ahead and discontinue them… forever.
