I am a big fan of Colourpop and when Karen from iluvsarahii announced in her Snapchat that she was coming out with a collection with them I did 2 things, I set up my alarm on launch date and time and then I told everyone I could about it. So when it launched the website was slow, this is expected when hundreds of people are on the site at the same time. When I was finally in...Guess what? It was sold out!!!! I was checking up constantly on her snapchat and Instagram to see if they restocked and they did so as soon as she announced it I headed back and I was able to get my hands on these goodies. I really wanted the lipsticks. I love the shadows too but I have shadows to last me years and if you know anything about makeup you know it has a short self life. I also have a lot of lipsticks but these I wear so much it doesn't really matter. Also these items are still available in some shades.
I got all three lipstick shades in Mamacita, 951, and Curvi I also purchased the lip liners that matched their color.
I am in love with the packaging, This one has to be my favorite so far. It is classy, glam, and sophisticated. Very much like Karen's personality.
I usually go for the Matte Lipsticks but I have to say that the Satin lip in 951 won me over. The texture is great. The nude color is my favorite it goes great with a simple makeup look or with full glam. It is moisturizing and your lips feel amazing. It is easy to apply and it last. Second favorite has to be the color Mamacita which is the darkest color. This is the hardest to apply because it is dark and I have to be careful not to smear the rest of my makeup. It is a beautiful burgundy red, which I don't have much in my collection. And lastly a gloss finish in Curvi. It is a softer pink almost coral. It is great to layer on top of another lipstick. I am not a big fan of glosses since you have to reapply so much. But this one is pretty pigmented you can even wear it alone.
