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.

ColourPop July Haul

ColourPop came out with a bunch of new products (Pressed Powder Shadows and Ultra Blotted Lips). They also came out with several new collections and collaborations that included newer shades of their pre-existing products.

I really wanted to try out some of the newer items as well as some things that were new to just me (for example their Precision Brow Pencil). I mean, I’ve had my heart set on Baby Talk Super Shock Pressed Pigment (the red one) and Short and Sweet Mini Lip Kit since they were released on Valentine’s Day, whereas Animal Super Shock Pressed Pigment (the broken one) has been in and out of my online shopping cart from Day 1. For some reason, I couldn’t stop thinking about Luckfully Super Shock Shadow (the dark blue one) even though it’s clearly not the most easily wearable and I don’t do blue, in general. Also, I was worried I’d miss out on Mwah Ultra Matte Lip (the one with kisses all over the packaging) since it was a collab, and therefore probably limited edition (still not quite sure how ColourPop operates). Then there’s Bumble Ultra Matte Lip which everyone swears by and Tuesday Ultra Matte Lip (which has also been in and out of my online shopping cart more times than I can count) and was the only shade I was really interested in from the Moment of Weekness Liquid Lip Set. After playing around with the other ColourPop products that I’d purchased previously, I also wanted to pick up some neutrals (shadows, liquid lips, etc…) especially Firefly Pressed Powder Shadow (which I was so sure would look super complimentary).

Once the Short and Sweet Mini Lip Kit went on sale, I decided to go ahead and place my order, keeping it under $100. I mean I can afford to go crazy, but I always try to keep it at $100 or lower, for whatever reason, sorta’ like a personal challenge (my total this time was $99.40) Plus, it’s a good way to keep me in check, because it’s so easy to go overboard and not even be aware of it, since their price point is so low. It’s just something that I’ve been doing since my CherryCulture.com days and kept it going with Coastal Scents, BH Cosmetics, E.L.F. and all the other super inexpensive online stores.
