Single pan pressed eyeshadows are my weakness, I collect them, I love them. Now that I’ve said that, you won’t be surprised that I’m coming to you with a review and swatches of the new Colourpop pressed shadows. Colourpop launched over 30 new pressed eyeshadows in January promoting it as their biggest launch yet. I picked up quite a few in the meantime and have been using them non stop, so here I thought it was about time to talk to you about them.

colourpop eyeshadows super shock shadow swatch review

Since I have accumulated a few Colourpop products in the past few months I thought it might be useful to share some swatches and my opinions so far. If you missed it, watch my collection video for an overview of all the products that will be coming in the following weeks. In the meantime, we will start this week with eye products and in particular the Colourpop eyeshadows.

On October 21st Colourpop decided that all the makeup addicts outside the US had the right to purchase their products without having to pay ridiculous shipping fees. So until the end of 2016, shipping outside the US costs $9.99 for orders up to $49.99 and is free for orders above $50.

New Makeup Geek Foiled eyeshadows for Fall 2016 – comparison swatches

I recently gave you a first look into the new Makeup Geek eyeshadows that launched for Fall 2016 in this post here. Since there are a total of 18 new shades, I decided to show you the comparisons in two separate posts. Let’s start with the new Makeup Geek foiled eyeshadows.

Rather than a specific Fall-themed collection, this is an expansion of the current foiled eyeshadow line. All the new Makeup Geek foiled eyeshadow shades are unique and different from anything existent from the brand. Nevertheless, I think a comparison of each shade with similar ones in my collection could help you get an idea whether you need them or not. A small sad note is that my collection is quite a bit smaller after moving overseas, but I hope you get a good idea of the shades.

Updating the stash #2: new Makeup Geek eyeshadow swatches

It is no secret that Makeup Geek is my favorite eyeshadow brand, si it will come as now shock that there is another update post. Beauty Bay had a big sale some time ago and I picked up some more shadows on the way. I was initially quite weary of the foiled eyeshadows because of the rumors that they creased, but I finally was won over by the incredible pigmentation and color payoff so I have quite a few of them here. As usual I will give the official description and a mini review for every shade. If you want to see all my other Makeup geek eyeshadows, check out the previous posts here and here.
