ColourPop 2015 Autumn Collection – Individual Shades

This is my final blog post about the ColourPop 2015 Autumn collection and this time we are looking at shades that were released individually this season.

I picked colours that I thought I would love rather than just purchasing everything in the collection, but turns out there were quite a few colours I really wanted to try.  ColourPop is an extremely interesting texture which takes some experimentation when you first apply them.  I use a synthetic, dense, fluffy brush for buffing out matte shades in the crease and then I use my fingers to pat on colours on the lid.  I really enjoy these shadows and, as I have said in other reviews I’ve done on this brand, these LAST on my eyes despite humidity and heat.  Awesome.

So, lets have a look at the colours I purchased from this collection.

Supermodel

Supermodel is a really beautiful, soft golden/champagne colour.  Love at first sight!

I Spy

I Spy is a matte shade and is a camel type colour.  ColourPop describe this as a soft, yellow peach… and I suppose it is, but this feels more brown toned to me.  Either way, I really enjoy this colour for warming up the crease.

Boy Band

Boy Band is such a wearable, chocolate colour.  The texture is so smooth and it is so pigmented.  I knew I would like this but actually, this really is a perfect colour.  I have worn it so often already!

Mixed Tape

Mixed Tape was a surprise gem.  I nearly didn’t pick this up because it is such a cool-toned grey and such colours don’t always suit me (because they can accentuate the black chasms that are my under-eye area!), but I’m glad that I didn’t follow my instincts this time.  This colour is beautiful.  It has a mauve undertone on my skin and it is so pretty.  It looks quite matte online, but it is shimmery goodness in person.

Party Time

Party time is the perfect partner to Mixed Tape.  It is a dusty, mauve grey with a matte finish and it is really pigmented.  This is perfect for a smokey eye or for any cool-toned eye looks as a soft crease colour.  This does really lean mauve on my skin which is perfect.

Stereo

I haven’t worn Stereo yet, but not because I don’t want to, its just that this is such a glamorous shadow… and I am yet to have an occasion to warrant it.  This shadow has a blackened burgundy base with lots of purple/pink glitter.  The picture of the pan online makes this look like a lighter tone than it is in person but the swatch is much truer to colour.

Central Perk

Lastly, for the super shock shadows we have Central Perk.  This is a rich, maroon matte.  I love this colour and have loved it so far to deepen up the outer corner in looks.  Pretty!  It is very similar to Hustle from the permanent range but it is a little more brown toned and Hustle is a little more purple toned.

Never Been Kissed: matte

The last product that I purchased from the Autumn collection is a matte blush called Never Been Kissed.  I love coral blush.  I just think that it gives such a nice, natural flush on my pale, freckled skin.  This blush from ColourPop doesn’t disappoint.

This blush is pigmented but I find that it blends well.  I hear people saying they apply these with their fingers but I find that really hard to do.  I use a small stipple brush and it works really nicely to blend out the colour.

I have really enjoyed all the releases from ColourPop for Autumn this year.  If you have purchased anything from the Autumn collection I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

Have a great day!
