Happy Monday, beauties! I had previously reviewed ColourPop’s matte eyeshadows, when someone mentioned in the comment section that their glittery and metallic eyeshadows were really their strong point. Luckily, I won two glittery ColourPop eyeshadows from Laynie at Fashion and Lashes, which I will be reviewing for you today.
Color: Both colors have this beautiful shimmer and sparkle. Nillionaire is a gorgeous neutral, medium brown shade with gold glitter. Flipper is a pale peachy orange shade, leaning a little on the pink side with matching glitter.
Color Payoff: Like before, the color payoff on these is lovely. It’s not quite as good as the matte shades, but still more than I hoped for. What’s more, you can really see the glitter in the eyeshadow, unlike other eyeshadows in which the glitter just disappears as soon as it reaches your lid.
Texture: I really like the texture of both of these. Sometimes glittery eyeshadows can be chunky or irritating, especially if the sparkle payoff is good. These feel buttery and smooth in the pot and buttery and smooth on the eyelid.
Application: Just like the last time I reviewed ColourPop. I might get a little whiny in this section. Nillionaire applies and blends out beautifully. I have absolutely no complaints with that one. Flipper is a bit trickier. I first tried applying it using a flat brush to really pack on the color. That was a big mistake. Applying this with the brush, I found it to be horribly patchy. I’m not the type of person to wipe my makeup off and start over again if it isn’t perfect, but I would not have left the house with my eyeshadow looking like that. So I changed tactics. ColourPop recommends applying with your fingers, so that’s what I tried. Using the fingertip method, it was a total 180. It went on smooth and evenly. Even though I’m impressed with how it well it worked using my fingertips, I am a little annoyed that it didn’t work as well with a brush, as I find that to be a little less messy. Below are pictures of Flipper applied with my fingers.
Price: $5.00 each
Cruelty-Free: Yes, and made in America.
