My Top 10 ColourPop Eye Shadows For 2015

SELF PURCHASED / AFFILIATE LINKS

 

So – it’s been stated here on my blog before that I have a major ColourPop obsession, so narrowing down my favorite shades was a huge challenge, especially since I own over 50 shadows.  I wanted to make sure that the shades I selected were not part of collections or Limited Edition so that they could be purchased by anyone should they decide that is something they wanted to try.  Today – after a long hard selection process (teehee), I give you My Top 10 ColourPop Eye Shadows for 2015.

So have you jumped on the ColourPop bandwagon yet?  I immediately fell in love with not only the shades of eye shadows that ColourPop offered, but also the pigmentation, vibrancy and interesting texture that ColourPop shadows had.  After my first order from the brand this time last year, I haven’t been able to stop buying and have grown to have quite a collection of goodies.  Choosing my Top 10 eye shadows was a challenge (as I mentioned previously) but I was able to narrow it down to 10 and an honorable mention.  So – let’s get started and check out what made my Top 10 List.  If you are interested in the video version – click here or watch the embedded video below.

Be sure to tell me what are some of your top ColourPop shadows in the comments below 😀  Let’s get started – shall we!

My Top 10 Favorite Eye Shadows From ColourPop - 2015

I chose a variety of shades, but as you can see… many have a neutral toned or smoky look to them.

I Heart This – Metallic: This very metallic shade was part of my first purchase from ColourPop and I immediately loved the glitter and sparkle this shadow offered.  It is great for an inner corner highlight or used on the lid for sparkle.  It does offer some fall out if you are swiping the color onto the lid vs. using patting motions.

Get Lucky – Ultra Metallic: This shade is newly acquired (I’ve only had it about 2 months) but it is one of the most beautiful golds I own out of my entire eye shadow collection.  It reminds me of a true gold (like gold bar) and it’s been a shadow on my list for about a year though I have passed it up many times.  I’m so glad I own it.

Liberty – Ultra Metallic:  This gorgeous silver shade definitely screams patriotic but reminds me of liquid metal.  It’s shiny – bold and perfect for all over the lid or a pop of color in a smoky eye.

Desert – Satin:  This color is my favorite for a transition shade in any look.  It mimics my skin tone so it makes any look easy to blend.  I stated in the video it was a matte shade, but it does have a satin sheen though it works fabulous in the crease as well.

Bill – Matte:  Bill is a muted plum beige tone that makes a great all over the lid shade or a transition or crease shade.  It’s a great color that works well for a smoky look and I love it.

My Top 10 Favorite Eye Shadows From ColourPop - 2015

Hustle – Matte:  Probably my favorite matte shadow that I own (and I own several from CP).  Hustle is a gorgeous burgundy shade that lends for an almost violet hue.  It screams Honey and is a shade I pull for to darken my outer v or crease or to add drama to any look.  I LOVE IT.

Mittens – Matte: A beautiful deep brown with a burgundy undertone, Mittens is another shade I love to use in the crease or to darken or deepen a look for dimension.  A must have in any smoky eye kit.

Lala – Ultra Metallic:  I have had this shade now for about 2 months and each time I use makeup I have been pulling this shade out as my lid color.  It is a gorgeous rose gold / copper shade that offers just the perfect amount of shimmer on the lid when blended with matte shadows.  I LOVE IT and it is easily a favorite in my whole collection.  I am using Lala on my lid in the photo embedded from Instagram below.

Emerald – Pearlized:  This color screams emerald and in one swipe you get “wham bam” color that packs a punch.  While this has a shimmer look to it – it doesn’t have fall out and is just gorgeous on the lid.

ColourPop Cosmetics

I am using Coconut on my lid and Desert in the crease / transition shade.

Coconut – Pearlized:  Another gorgeous favorite… Coconut is a shade I have had a few short months but love it.  It is a statement color that anyone can use and it’s a showstopper.  If you love teals – you will love this as much as I do.  It reminds me of a peacock and its feathers and I am in love with this shade.

Partridge – Pearlized:  Partridge is an honorable mention.  I purchased this shade as a part of a holiday collection and I’m glad I bought it.  It is a gorgeous duo chrome that offers a brown hue with a green shift.  I love duo chromes and this one has stolen my heart.  If you want a shade you can easily wear for a neutral look but keep it fresh – I definitely suggest it.

Wearing ColourPop Desert into the crease and as transition shade. CP Partridge blended into the crease and blended partially onto the lid.

I’m sure next year I will have a whole different selection of color choices or who knows, I may stick to my faves but at the end of the day – I know that I have a ton of fun with these.  You can beat a $5.00 price tag for a lot of product and while some may say they are a challenge to work with, that doesn’t sway me one bit – I love them and I find a way.

So – what are your favorite ColourPop eye shadow shades?  Do you like any of the same ones I do?  Be sure to comment down below and let me know, because I would love to check out your favorites too.
