Last week, Colourpop released a collection based around the old school version of My Little Pony. I got my hands on a couple of the items, so keep reading to see if I think they’re worth the money, or if you should pass on them.
This palette has a few different formulas within the twelve shadows you’re getting. Here are the shade names and finishes via the Colourpop website:
Butterscotch: white with subtle pink violet opalescent sheen
Blossom: metallic peach with pink and gold duochrome finish
Starshine: metallic golden tangerine
Bluebell: satin golden ivory
Applejack: matte dusty red violet
Skydancer: metallic bright icy lavender
Minty: matte cool-toned fuchsia
Flutterbye: matte true pastel peach
Twilight: satin deep blackened violet
Firefly: metallic silvery baby blue
Snuzzle: metallic icy white with opalescent blue duochrome
Princess Sparkle: metallic rich smokey turquoise
These shadows apply and blend in typical Colourpop pressed shadow fashion. They last a fairly long time throughout the day without an eyeshadow primer or glitter glue. I haven’t had any difficulty blending the mattes out or applying the shimmer/metallic shades I’ve tried thus far. I had to go into another palette I’m currently testing for a shade to deepen my crease and outer corner, but that’s not a huge deal to me. I didn’t experience a bunch of fallout upon application or kickup when I put my brush into the pans, even with the shimmer shades.
This is my first experience with the Colourpop Ultra Matte lipsticks, and I must say, I like the formula. Matte liquid lipsticks are almost always gonna dry your lips out, so that’s to be expected. I’ve heard that their ultra satin lips are more comfortable, but none of the lip products in this collection are that formula.
I LOVE this color for fall! It’s a blackened plum that will go with so many different eye looks. The color payoff is spot on as well. I didn’t find it to be patchy upon application or anything like that, which can be a huge problem with darker liquid lipstick shades.
(Sidebar: My nails being as glittery as the lip gloss is purely a cute coincidence lol)
This lip gloss is super pigmented as you can see in the swatch above, and is chock full of glittery goodness. You get full color payoff with one swipe, and the glitter in the gloss doesn’t feel chunky on the lips. I mean, just look at it. It’s simply gorgeous! The ONLY downside to this glossy lip is that it leaves behind a ton of glitter when you take off, but that’s not a huge deal to me.
So, here’s my verdict. I think that you should totally get the Colourpop My Little Pony Collection. It’s reasonably priced, and the products I tried are of great quality. There are a few other things in the collection that I haven’t tried yet, those being some makeup brushes, super shock shadows and some highlighters, so I can’t speak to those. However, I love everything that I’ve tried from the collection, and definitely would repurchase them. If you’ve seen the whole collection and think you want it all, Colourpop does have a PR Set available for purchase that includes everything they have in the MLP Collection.
