Brands to know, try, and love

Kenzie McCoy

I want to start doing a couple of reoccurring series on my blog. These topics I will revisit and rewrite about from time to time and add on to the series.

Let’s dive into this series I’ve named, “Brands to know, try, and love.” This series is all about branching out of your makeup rut and trying some new products from brands that you may not see on your typical drugstore shelf or Sephora counters. Of course, I’ll just be talking about some brands that I’ve tried and products that I’ve purchased that I’ve fallen in love with and want to share about with you all.

Today’s spotlight brand is ColourPop Cosmetics, a recent online only brand that was started in Los Angeles, Calif. They’ve gained a lot of love lately and many prominent YouTubers have been talking about their products. This brand blew up fast because of their super cheap prices, good quality and super sparkly eye-shadows. ColourPop started out just producing shimmer-packed eye-shadows, but now have evolved into creating lipsticks, blushes, highlighters, matte eye-shadows and bronzers. Although I don’t own every type of product they have, I own quite a few and find that my favorite products are their lipsticks, or Lippie Stix. I also own a couple highlighters, a liquid lipstick, and many eye-shadows that I use on a regular basis.

I feel confident while recommending these products to you makeup junkies and newbies out there because ColourPop’s products are fun, they have a large range, and they’re inexpensive (most items are $5) they’re made in the U.S. and are cruelty-free.

This brand stays fun and hip with their innovative products and fun product names. One of their most recent releases is a lipstick set called “Back to Cool.” Not only are the names different from many brands, their products are as well. The formula of all the powder products are a strange gel to powder like formula and are best applied with your fingertips. I enjoy popping a shimmery ColourPop eye-shadow in the center of my eyelid, with my finger, to top off any look.

If you’re a budget babe, maybe head to ColourPop’s website and try a few, fun products out for yourself. Let me know what you think about your purchases!
