My first order ever from Colourpop was in November 2016. I accidentally titled that haul Black Friday when it should’ve been titled Cyber Monday. I felt like I was getting a good deal that I just couldn’t pass up which is why I placed my first order with Colourpop during Cyber Monday. I put in a second order with Colourpop before the first one had even arrived, in December 2016. Once again, they were having some kind of deal going on. If you purchased $100 worth of products, you got $25 off your next purchase (coupon code to be received via e-mail a week or so after your order ships). My third order (this one) was placed in January 2017 using the coupon code I’d received from my previous order. At this point, I’d played around with some of the Colourpop stuff I’d already purchased so I had a better feel for what would work for me.
Once I spotted the Al Mansour Booth at the Perfume and Makeup Exhibition, I cautiously approached the booth. Why cautiously? Because Al Mansour (mentioned previously – here) sold everything from L.A. Girl, LASplash, Milani, Deborah, etc… basically all the drugstore brands (read: inexpensive products). Now that every single girl in the world has joined the darkside (read: has turned into a makeup junkie of sorts) the ones in Kuwait have quickly sussed out that Al Mansour sells great products at a relatively inexpensive price. In case you missed it, basically it means their booth is now always swarmed by women and consequentially men who are trying to “pick up” said women, much to my dismay. I can understand the hand-holding couple who are so in love that they can’t bear the thought of being apart even for a second and I actually kinda’ think it’s cute! I can understand the grumpy older husband being dragged by his much younger and consequentially much hotter wife to these things. I can understand the gay guy whose brow game is so next level it hurts, browsing the same brow products shelf as I am and sizing me up (or my brows, more accurately) as I do the same to him, like two samurai warriors acknowledging each other as worthy adversaries before they do battle. I can understand the younger men sent by their significant others (who for whatever reason couldn’t make it) and shopping on their behalf. I understand the men who are there to purchase Oud and such from the neighboring booths. I cannot however understand the fully grown men who gather on the outskirts of these makeup booths just to leer at women. Aside from being creepy AF they also create an obstruction to the already narrow pathways and add unnecessary participants to an already large crowd!!!! *end rant*
Le Disko, where glitter and glamour intoxicate and colour gets physical. It’s all see and be scene as the crowd converges under a sparkling aura of lights and erupts into a dazzling sea of eyes and lips. Feel the fever with Dazzle Eye Shadow in riotous hues, while Dazzleglass drops it like it’s hot for colour-popped lips that’ll make the boys go crazy. It’s a full on colour disco, and you’re the reigning queen.
Exceptional, sparkling shadows offer a mix of unique colors and finishes that stand out from the crowd, providing maximum shelf appeal. Rich pigments adhere to the lid, remaining true to the color you see in the pan, imparting eyes with beautiful, twinkling sheen. Innovative liquidform ‘bridge’ texture creates the perfect union of a cream and powder. Unique formula creates a multi-dimensional, reflective surface leaving lids looking dazzling yet delicate. Performance driven liquidform texture allows for superior adhesion and performance, minimizing fallout and giving a brilliance not found in a traditional pressed eye shadow.
So this is pretty much a huge collection introducing a new product Dazzleshadow. This collection consists of shadows, glosses, and liners and everything is ultra-glittery and sparkly. I only purchased 2 Dazzleshadows from this collection. Each Dazzleshadow retails for KD10/750 each.
I first previewed this collection here. I was interested in Phosphorescent right off the bat because it was coral but again I was worried it would look fuchsia on me which is why the descriptions put me off buying Pheromonal, Lust Extract, and Quite The Thing! as they seemed like they would appear even darker on my pigmented lips. Venomous Violet seemed interesting but too iffy and Moody Bloom looked straight up ugly to me. Everything else looked either dupe-able or too wild for my taste. Once I saw everything in person at Marina Mall, everything changed.
