ColourPop Shaaanxo Eyeshadow Collection
ColourPop Cosmetics makes the dreamiest eyeshadows! I love them to bits, so soft and creamy and the pigment is insane!!! My favorites are the Perlized ones for their shimmer and metalic look. Totally to die for amazing these are!!!! The problem for us here in South Africa is that we dont get Colourpop here :( Oh the sadness! On the up side tho there are a few lovely people that buy some overseas and bring it back to sell in SA. A Few weeks ago I got this beautiful ColourPop Shaaanxo eyeshadow foursome pack. In SA this sells for about R450 if you can get it from someone.
The Foursome pack contains two perlized shades and two matte shades, The perlized shades in colors Deluxe & XO and the Matte shades in Selfie & Rebel. XO Is a stunning golden metallic color and is great for highlighting the inner eye corner or even doing an on its own overall lid look for an extreme golden shine. Deluxe is a stunning chocolate brown shade with a slight copper shine to it, It really is stunning and you can blend it beautifully for a darker smokey bronzed look, I also find it great for a nice lid line. Selfie is a creamy Peachy nude shade that is a good base color and good for using in the crease for shade transition, I would also totally just use it on its own for a beautiful matte nude look. Last but now least, Rebel is a dark green khaki shade that I use mostly in the corner of the eye and to line the lid but would also look great on its own because u can blend it to a lighter green once its applied. All of the colourpop eyeshadows are super pigmented and a little goes a long way.
I Love the packaging of this pack, the little slip cover has a rainbow metallic shine to it and slips off to reveal the Super Shock foursome eyeshadow pack. When you open the pack you get four individual round eyeshadows in pretty round white containers with screw off tops, these are great cause they close well and that helps your product last longer so just make sure you screw the top back on properly when you are done playing with them. Colourpop is a USA brand and you can check out their site and drool over all the fantastic products www.colourpop.com
I did some swatches of the products on my hand so you can see what the colors look like. I have also done a little makeup look with the pack, I like to mix all the shades into one look. I used Selfie as a all over lid starter color and then applied XO from the inner corner to 3/4 through and did the last 1/4 of the lid with Deluxe for a outward dark corner blended look. I then took Rebel and Colored the inner corner with it, I find the green color of Rebel brings out my eyes nicely. I finished it off by just lightly blending a bit with XO.
