Colourpop Eye Shadow Review & Swatches

Colourpop Eye Shadow

This is a special guest post by Clara of

Colourpop has been one of my favourite makeup brands recently due to their wide range of cruelty-free makeup products. Most of their products are vegan and they list all the non-vegan products in the FAQ section of their website. They claimed their fame with these amazing single eye shadows and they are probably one of the best eye shadows I have ever used.

First off one of the best things about these eye shadows is their price. They are $5 each which is extremely affordable for their quality. Their formula is absolutely amazing, unlike other cream or clay eye shadows, they are kind of mousy and will not crease on your lids. They are also soft to touch but when apply to lids it is not sticky at all. I recommend using fingertips to apply these as it is hard to use brushes to pick the product up. It is really pigmented so a little product goes a long way.

I personally only picked up the pearlized and metallic eye shadows as I heard that they are better than the matt ones but I believe they still have the same formula so I would love to try them out in the future. One thing I would like to see is to see them in a palette form so it would be easier to store them. In general, I really enjoy these products and excited to see them come out with more different shades. I do recommend checking out their FAQ page to see which products are vegan and which ones aren’t. 

Colourpop Eye Shadow swatches

From right to left: Famous, Amaze, Cheap Date, La La, Nillionaire, So Quiche, Cricket, 3

Famous (pearlized): This eye shadow is described as a soft subtle gold and it is perfect to be used as a based color to layer other gold eye shadows on or as a highlighter for the inner corners of the eyes.

Amaze (metallic) : This is a metallic rose gold with chunks of glitter. 

Cheap Date (metallic): This is a gorgeous metallic true gold with some silver sparkles.

La La (Ultra metallic) : This is also a metallic rose gold but comparing to Amaze it doesn’t have glitter and has a more copper tone.

Nillionaire (metallic): This is a warm bronzy color with tons of glitter.

So Quiche (metallic): An olive color with gold and pink violet glitter. On the website it says that it is in a duo chrome metallic finish that looks amazing with a smoky eye look.

Cricket (metallic): A plummy brown color with gold glitter that is perfect for the fall and holiday season.

3 (metallic): This is described as a cool-tone bronze color with multi-colored glitter. I love using this on my crease and the outer corner of my eyes.

    I loved ColourPop then realized almost all of their shadows and highlighters contain carmine. It’s listed as an ingredient in all of the shadows I checked. Have they reformulated? I hope!!!
