In the beginning of this year, I bought some ColourPop products.

I took this picture from my Instagram. I bought four eyeshadows and two lip products. For this post, I will review one of the eyeshadows.

Thoughts: When I saw the eyeshadows on YouTube, as well as, Instagram, I was intrigued. I thought why not since it's only $5 each.
Here's how the eyeshadow looks. It looks like a typical eyeshadow, but it's more a softer sponge-like shadow. It reminds me a lot of Mirabella Myth Visionary Long Wearing Eyeshadow. In the sense that if you touch with your fingers, it'll leave a fingerprint mark.
Here's a closer look at I Heart This.
Here's a swatch of I Heart This on my hand. I apologize the picture didn't come out that well, but you have an idea or at least I hope so.
Here's how I Heart This looks on the lid. I blended out with MAC in Mulch on the crease and other v.
Here's an overall look. I have Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick in Matte Frappuccino on the lips.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it has a slight scent if you smell the product with your nose. Otherwise, you do not smell anything. I cannot describe the smell but it's not pleasant. Again, I said it's only noticeable if you put your nose close to the shadow. Secondly, it's extremely easy to apply. They recommend using your fingers. That's what I did on the lid. I honestly do not know how it'll be with a brush. With that said, it goes on smoothly and dries quickly. I highly recommend you do one eye first then the other. Once it's dried, it'll be hard to blend the color. Third if you're not a big fan of metallic, shiny, sparkly eyeshadows, this isn't for you. I personally love the metallic, shiny eyeshadow. Whenever I wear this, I get tons of compliments. Lastly, the eyeshadow is long lasting and does not crease.

* Variety of colors and textures.
* $5 dollar each.
* Easy to apply.
* Pigmented.
* Dries quickly.
* Does not crease.
* Long lasting.
* Not tested on animals.

* Cannot find in stores.

Would repurchase: Yes!

I tried out my friend's ColourPop shadows, and the texture is really unique! I think the shimmery shadows work much better than the matte/velvety ones. :D
