5 Must Have Products You Need From ColourPop Cosmetics

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you know that ColourPop Cosmetics, a trendy, affordable makeup company based in Los Angeles, California, has taken the makeup industry by storm ever since it’s inception in 2014. Known for their high-quality products, frequent new releases, and low price tags, ColourPop is a staple brand in many makeup artists’ and enthusiasts’ collections, and has revolutionized the idea that affordable makeup has the potential to be as good and well-performing as high-end makeup. If you’re deciding to purchase from ColourPop for the first time, and/or are a makeup beginner, it can be overwhelming to decide which products to buy since there are so many to choose from! Below is a list of 5 ColourPop products that you NEED on your vanity ASAP! 


  1. No Filter Matte Concealer ($6)

Concealer is the #1 must have product in a makeup collection, in my opinion. ColourPop’s concealer comes in 30 shades, ranging from fair to deep-dark. This concealer provides a full coverage finish, and can be used for lightening up dark circles, cream contouring, and as an eyeshadow base. Many beauty enthusiasts claim that this is a direct dupe for Tarte Cosmetics’ Shape Tape Concealer. Although I personally think that the Shape Tape has more coverage, the No Filter Concealer is an awesome alternative for it, and it’s a fourth of the price! 


  1. Super Shock Highlighter ($8)

If you’re on the hunt for a blinding, pigmented highlighter, look no further than the cult favorite Super Shock Cheek Highlighter. These beauties have a smooth, unique formula that is best applied using your finger. You can build these highlighters to be as natural or glam as you wish! My personal favorite is the shade “Flexitarian”. I use this highlighter whenever I want a super dramatic glow, and it never disappoints!

  1. “Yes, Please!” Eyeshadow Palette ($16)

The “Yes, Please” Palette is hands down one of the best eyeshadow palettes on the market. It has the perfect array of colors, such as berries, yellows, and neutrals that can be used both during the day and on a night out. The eyeshadows themselves are not patchy at all; they perform beautifully, and stay on your eyes the entire time you wear them. Plus, you can’t beat that price!


4) Crème Gel Liners ($5)

I’m not a huge fan of wearing eyeliner, but I find that it makes a big difference when I put some on my waterline when I’m wearing a lot of eyeshadow. It helps tie the whole eye look together. Even though eyeliner isn’t my favorite, I do LOVE ColourPop’s Crème Gel Liner Pencils in the shades “Mr. Bing” and “Brew-HAHA”. “Mr. Bing” is more of a reddish brown, and Brew-HAHA is a deep brown. Both of them are creamy, long-lasting, and provide the perfect pop to the eyes. 


5) Ultra Glossy Lip “Neat Freak” ($6)

Everyone needs a go-to clear lip gloss in their life. Created in collaboration with beauty influencer @MakeupShayla, “Neat Freak” is the go-to gloss you’ve been searching for. This product is perfect for wearing by itself or as a lipstick topper. It has pink and gold micro glitters to give your lips a beautiful shiny finish.
